Sharon M.

Marysville, WA

About Sharon

Hi there, my name is Sharon M. I have loved music all my life, however, over the last 25 years my passion and joy has been teaching piano.

Beginning my musical training at a young age it was continued through college and beyond. I performed and accompanied throughout the United States and Europe for many years. Following college (Seattle Pacific University - Music Education/Piano), I received specialized teacher training and certification to teach the Robert Pace Piano Approach (Teachers College, Columbia University). I also have specialized training in teaching all styles of Improvisation
with the author of "Pattern Play," Forrest Kinney. My students are excited to discover and create their own music from the very first lesson.

At your lessons you will learn how to read print music, play by ear, create your own music, and much more. The music is interesting, fun to play (never boring) and easy to understand. You will be surprised how fast you will progress! All styles, Classical to New Contemporary, are available musical choices.

I recognize that each student is unique and has different goals and aspirations so each student's lesson is unique and carefully prepared to inspire and create curiosity to make reaching the goal easy, fun and exciting.

My goal is: To discover and encourage each student's musical potential; to nurture and inspire creativity, musical artistry and a love of music; and to develop a strong musical foundation that provides the tools, confidence and enthusiasm to independently learn, create and enjoy music for a lifetime.

I look forward to helping you reach your musical goals!

*** Lesson Details ***
The studio has a comfortable, relaxed setting where you will receive positive encouragement to reach your musical goals. You will quickly discover how fun and easy it is!! Whether big or small every accomplishment is celebrated. No one is ever too young or too old to experience the joy that music brings.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is professionally equipped with a Kawai piano, staff lined whiteboard, music library, and many other teaching materials.There is a separate waiting room. You will need to have a piano (keyboard) at home for practicing and provide some lesson books/flashcards.

*** Specialties ***
Using the unique Pace Approach to piano instruction, which was discovered and developed by the world-renown dynamic educator, Dr. Robert Pace of Teachers College, Columbia University, who is credited with having revolutionized the art of piano teaching, you will enjoy learning to read, play, and write music in all styles and keys. But what becomes even more fun is to find your own creativity through improvisation, composing, and arranging pieces that you already know andlove. You will become excited to discover that you have your own personal music to share with the world.

My 13 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Jared for 4 months. Jared is versatile and really knows music. His stlye is very relevant and he keeps my daughter interested in learning by teaching her music she knows and hears on the radio and at home. I would definitely recommend Jared for anyone who wants to learn not only how to read music but how to master the guitar, the correct way!!

Lake Stevens, WA

About Matthew

Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

In my musical travels I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
3.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/B
ad Company/Montrose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - 12/21/2016 For the last 4 months I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible musician and I'm proud to call him and his manager my friends. His new album coming out is nothing short of amazing.

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

Rachel H.

Lake Stevens, WA

About Rachel

Music has always been a major (no pun intended) part of my life. I began learning piano at the age of 5 and continued studying classical piano into young adulthood. My favorite part about playing is being able to express myself through the music I learn and songs I write as well.

I am intuitive to the varying learning styles of different students so my teaching style is personalized to each student's individual needs.
I put a good deal of emphasis on creative music and encourage students to create their own compositions using the techniques and theory they've learned.
Most importantly, I
want my students to have fun and learn to play the pieces they love!

About Josh

Hi my name is Josh and I've been teaching professionally for over 10 years. It's a joy to try and make a difference in people's lives and to help people reach their musical goals. I have my bachelor's degree in performance and my master's degree in teaching. I have studied, performed and done studio work with many well known artists, ask me for more details. I like to teach in a fun yet structured environment and make individual game plans for each student to specifically accommodate each person's goals. I am certified by the state to work with kindergarten through 12th grade but I'm also very
popular with my adult beginners because of my emphasis on quick results. My personal goal is to get my students as good as possible as quickly as possible while going about it in the funnest way. Ask for me and I will do my best to accommodate you.
