Lesson Details

Violin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
With 25 years of playing and performing experience, I've gathered a lot of knowledge to share! My main focus on the violin is in classical music and rock improvisation. In private lessons we'll take the time to improve intonation and tone, learn to read music, and learn proper technique. I think its crucial to challenge my students and push them to be their best and most importantly we'll have fun and play music that you enjoy because that is what learning an instrument is all about!

Hey! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Garrett Reynolds and I'm a professional record producer, violinist, and head recording engineer at the Electrokitty Sound Studio in Seattle, WA. I've been playing music since I picked up the violin at the age of 5 and I've continued to learn and grow in music ever since. Nowadays I am a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and a full time record producer at Electrokitty Recording. I get to work with all sorts of artists in the studio, from local indie bands to grammy award winning musicians on major labels. As a violinist, I have 21 years of playing and performance experience under my belt and I've been fortunate enough to tour the country with a handful of acts. As an instructor I take pride in sharing my knowledge with young musicians and seasoned pros alike. Wether you're looking to pick up the violin and learn to play, or trying to figure out how to record your band at home...I'm here to help!

Garrett is a really knowledgeable teacher. He has really helped me improve my skills. I got lessons with Garrett in order to become more confident in my position as principle second. He helped me become a better leader and refine my skills further. Now I have better posture and are playing more properly. He is also a friendly and likable person. I don't like tutors with no personality because I get bored. Even though I have a busy schedule between work, cheer and school, we are always able to squeeze in a lesson somewhere. If you are busy like me and have an irregular schedule, Garret is your guy!
Overall, I am glad I chose Garrett as my Violin teacher because I've improved a ton since I've started lessons with him!
