Masood K.

Redmond, WA

About Masood

I started music lessons at the age of twelve with private Piano lessons. I took lessons for 15 years with prominent teachers, while mastering piano technique with a wide array of classical repertoire, from Bach to Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin.
I have been teaching piano since 1984 and acquired the skills through interacting with a variety of students of all tastes and needs.
I am able to help a music oriented student reach at a better understanding of piano playing technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would like my students to listen carefully to what they play, and practice attentive
ly, which takes less time and more learning material achieved.
I will evaluate which teaching method is suitable for my student after the orientation session.
An average music student will be able to read notes, count beats, and will have finished the basic course of piano lessons in 6 months.

I have known Masood personally and professionally for over 35 years. He is an extremely patient and hardworking individual. I have had the opportunity to work with him and have referred students to him on numerous occasions while my niece has been taking piano lessons from him for the past year or so and has made excellent progress. I would definitely recommend Masood for anyone’s music endeavor.

Greg D.

About Greg

I have been playing guitar since I was 14 and I have not looked back since. I love music and I love helping other people discover the joys it can bring. In college I studied classical guitar and got experience playing in many different groups. I currently perform in and around the Seattle area.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored to each individual student, to their interests and needs. I generally use the Hal Leonard Guitar method but I will use any method best suited for the goals you want to reach. Whatever method we use will be supplemented with other songs and exercises.

My lessons tend to be laid back and fun but also challenging. I expect students to do their best and make an effort.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lessons are taught in my studio with an amp, guitar, music stand, books, and seating.

Nicholas M.

Seattle, WA

About Nicholas

*** General Bio ***
Hi! My name is Nick and I was born and raised in the pacific northwest. Initially from the Olympia, WA area, I have lived in Seattle for the past 13 years and received my education at UW in music performance.

I am perhaps most known in the northwest marching percussion community from a recent 7-year stint instructing and coordinating the University of Washington Husky Drumline. During my time with UW, I helped propel the UW drumline from regional to national prominence. In the summer of 2013, I also led the Cascades Drum & Bugle Corps to their highest percussion scorin
g in 6 years. Last but not least, I have also been involved with both the Seahawks Blue Thunder Drumline & Sounders Sound Wave.

Outside of marching percussion, I currently tour with cinematic-electro-pop band HARPS (fb.com/thesoundofharps) and maintain a busy private lesson studio.

I proudly endorse Pearl Drums, Remo Drumheads, and Vic Firth Drumsticks.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that good teaching revolves around finding the right balance of three things: what the student wants, what the student needs, and what the student can handle.

As your teacher, I will do my very best in making you a more complete and well-rounded musician while helping guide you toward your goals. Whether you're just starting out, or an experienced pro wanting to brush up on a few new skills, I can help you. Over the past decade, I have successfully instructed folks from every age range and skill level. I'd love to have the opportunity to help you, too!

One thing I pride myself on is the ability to go at the students pace. I will teach in whatever way gets you the best results. In my experience, some people respond well to strict, regimented curriculum while others prefer a more laid back approach. I let everyone of my students know up front the amount of work it's going to take before X, Y and Z are going to happen.

My curriculum utilizes recordings, videos, demonstrations, transcriptions, books, play alongs, etc. I focus a great deal on maintaining great posture with relaxed playing technique, as well as reading and ear training. As a big influence of mine, Dave Weckl, once said: "Technique is a means to an end, and hopefully that end is good feeling and sounding music."

One thing I love about drums is that no matter how good you get, there's always a laundry list of things that you could still improve upon!

Easy, one bite at a time.

Way Beyond Excellent

Have you ever had something so amazing that you did not want to share it? Well, that is how I've felt about Nick's lessons. Nick has inspired and challenged my son to become a well rounded percussionist. Nick's professionalism, punctuality, and teaching skills far exceeds five stars. After each lesson, you will receive through notes on what was covered and what needs to be worked on. With all the different learning styles it usually pretty easy to note and area where an instructor could use improvement. This is absolutely not the case with Nick. If you a searching for an outstanding instructor, you've discovered him. My secret is out.

Well-rounded lessons that are worth your time.

I feel a little bit ridiculous for writing 5/5 stars for everything, but I have got to admit, Nick is an excellent teacher. I have been taking lessons on the marching snare with him, and have seen improvement over even the shortest periods of time. Nick can be quite serious when it comes to putting in a good effort, but he is very laid-back and makes the lessons fun, too. He has many approaches to teaching techniques in order to ensure that the student understands, and has helped me discover some of my true potential. I highly recommend Nick, whether you're a beginner, or trying to make the Husky Drumline.

Solid Teacher

Nick does a great job in all respects. He's well-versed in a lot of styles and is capable of teaching pretty much anything you want to learn on drum set. One thing that's set him apart from other teachers I've had is how he's able to precisely identify flaws in your playing while offering specific and direct ways to eliminate those flaws. If you take lessons from Nick and follow his instructions you're definitely going to become a better player.

About Larry

I've been a professional singer and teacher for over 40 years with a B.M.E. degree in music education and a M.A. in Vocal Performance. A long-standing member of the Nat. Assn of Teachers of Singing. I work with a variety of styles from classical to pop, country, jazz, and Broadway. My students are currently performing in some major theatres and with top name musicians.

Larry's dedication to his students is unbeatable. He is determined to find the best way to teach each student, and changes his tactics for each individual singer to make sure they are getting the most out of their lesson and having fun while improving quickly. I work in the musical theatre industry and have filmed audition videos with Larry, done audition prep, and worked general singing technique and have found him to be loyal, encouraging, and extremely talented. He believes in his students and the results show!

Larry is a great teacher. His professionalism, enthusiasm and experience speak volumes. He is very approachable and easy to work with. My technique has improved enormously since I started taking lessons with him because I find it easy to understand concepts when he explains them. In addition, Larry teaches in a fully equipped studio, so you can record your work and really hear how you're doing. I cannot say enough to recommend him!

I have been with Larry since 2000 when I first started doing musical theater. From the start I was amazed by Larry's beautiful voice and vocal knowledge. Larry is very talented in keeping students engaged and best of all his teaching style is molded around the students needs. Since starting with Larry I have delved into so many different styles including Broadway, classical, blues, rock, music performance, songwriting, and even audition prep. Over the past fourteen years Larry hasn't just become my vocal teacher, he has become a lifelong friend, and I look forward to every lesson I have with him.
