My name is Lisa Kay and I've been an independent guitar teacher for many years. I am a graduate of The Evergreen State College and have work experience in radio. My background includes composing in Ableton Live (which is a digital audio workstation) and hosting local jam sessions. I'd like to help you reach your goals and I look forward to working with you.

Teacher's studio

Lisa has been a great guitar teacher to my two kids for several years. Lisa is extremely patient, enthusiastic, mixing music theory, practice, simple exercises, harder exercises, etc. She is very happy and positive. She organized a recital every year for all the students, and you could see/hear how much they progressed over time. I even took lessons myself to be there with my kids at the beginning, but they quickly demonstrated they did not need me there. Lisa knew how to motivate them until they become 100% self-motivated in learning. I wholeheartedly recommend Lisa if you are looking for a guitar teacher. If I were to get one for myself again, I'd go straight to Lisa!

Lisa was an awesome teacher for beginning guitarists. My kids and I both took lessons. It was a great start to musical enjoyment. We still play many years later.

I had lessons with Lisa for a number of years. She has great patience with her students. You will be continuously challenged as Lisa introduces new techniques, skills and theory during her lessons. Working with Lisa was a joy, always fun! Highly recommended.
