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/Bad Company/Montrose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - For the last year I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible music
ian 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!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.
FEEL FREE learning in a comfortable atmosphere where you can excel successfully as a musician!
CONQUER shyness and insecurities by unleashing the dynamic performer in you!

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sound Proof Pro Recording Studio, PA System, guitars, basses, amps, drums, recording gear, mics, mic stands, strobe & lights, fog machine, seating for parents.

Sorry No Disco Ball Yet.. You Can Bring Your Own If You Want Though.

*** Travel Equipment ***

I'm really excited to add that to offer lessons online through TakeLessons! It's a great thing to get to work with students all over this country and I'm looking forward to help pioneer the future of music lessons!

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

My Unique Specialty - is teaching students the rudimental basics 1st, & then how to copy your favorite artists off the CD, radio or iPod, almost note for note. Believe me, it can be done. You just have to know what to listen for..

Brand New - MEASURE your success by recording your music progress along the way. I do own a recording studio, so we can record students progress via audio or video and then post to my YouTube channel.

· Harmonica · Online
Matt provided an awesome learning experience through down to earth, easy to understand explanations. Trying to figure harmonica playing out on my own for 2 years, I had heard of some of the concepts he taught with the music theory, but when he explained it, it actually made sense. Before this lesson, I mostly played along with the lyrics of songs that I know. After going over and learning the song "low rider", which is a new song for me, I am encouraged to seek out songs that have harmonica parts. One of my original goals in taking lessons is to learn to be able to improvise and I was given the opportunity to play the harmonica while Matt played the guitar. The hour was packed with information and harping and I am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are looking for an awesome instructor, I highly recommend Matt.

About Zaky
Hi, my name is Zak! Music is a beautiful thing. It has the so much power. It can be used to send a message, move and inspire people. Music can impact emotions, it is a beautiful and powerful thing!

Music, and teaching have always been a big passion in my life. The ability to take knowledge of a subject that you have, and show, share, and shape someone and pass on that knowledge to them. It is an amazing feeling. I am a passionate, and caring instructor. My teaching style is encouraging, motivating, and educational. I fully believe that you can do anything you set your mind to, and I use that by showing my students that I believe in them.

I use a curriculum that was taught to me, and has been used in schools and universities. This curriculum fits all age groups and skill levels. Starting with Rock, moving to Funk, ending with Jazz.
When drumming playing with music, learning improvisation, and playing by ear is important. I also focus on this, having students learn their favorite songs, and learn to play with new music as well. This keeps students interested, and adds a fun personal element to their lessons. I also have implemented use of a teaching app, so while practicing if students have a question they can ask me right then so to not forget, and I can give feedback. It also has a practice tracker tool. If you have any questions feel free to email me.

I look forward to meeting you, and helping you reach your music goals!

Zaky is great with my son who has a history of brain injury which causes him to have short term memory problems. In just a few weeks he has much more confidence in himself and is even a slight bit ahead in band class. He is now able to help some of the other students which he loves. There are very few things that at school that don't overwhelm him, and Zaky has helped him find success in music.

Ash Is a excellent teacher she helped me to calm myself when i get anxious. She teaches different kind of techniques to help when you're feeling overwhelmed or just teaching that feeling you feel it's just a feeling not you and how to let it go or put your attention on it and watch it go away after a few tries!

Ash is amazing! I started with her two years ago. I had sever anger issues, and I was all over the place. She taught me really cool tools like "dropping" your mind, light mediation, and more...I really recommend learning from her. She is great at explaining things and has helped me a lot in my meditation journeys. When I look at myself now, I feel more calm and accomplished thanks to her.

Ash is an excellent teacher, from what I have seen firsthand. A true expert in communicating and helping others understand the lessons at hand. With her patient and gentle approach, I would think that anybody would be able to learn from her. I have had the pleasure of watching her teach both children and adult, and I have learned a great deal in the process, and consider myself a student of hers aswell. I highly recommend her to teach your children or anyone for that matter.

About Andrew
I earned my music degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where I focused on performance, education and ear training. My principal instrument is drum set, but I also enjoy playing guitar and ukulele. I started teaching private drum lessons when I was in high school, taught music for two years at a small school in the Galapagos Islands and spent some time working at a school for students with severe disabilities where I also taught music. Most of my schooling was in contemporary styles like Jazz, Latin, Blues and Rock, but I very much enjoy music from around the world. Lately some of my favorites are: Qawwali, Kirtan, Balkan and Moroccan music.

I believe firmly in the teaching principle of "Rote Before Note." Reading sheet music is certainly a great skill, but having ears that are tuned in is the greatest asset for a music
ian. I start by teaching without sheet music so that students start focusing on listening, start developing musical memory and because it's great fun! Because I studied music education in college and have worked in schools, I know how to develop an appropriate curriculum for each student.

For students that stick with me or are already established on their instrument, we will work on incorporating deeper concepts into their music, such as, "How can you make your playing fluid like water?" "How would you demonstrate Yin Yang harmony in your playing?"

I look forward to exploring music and having a fun time with you!

Hey there , my name is Mary , I am a medical technologist with tons of clinical experience , i taught many students anatomy i was a student myself helping other students understand anatomy and biology . I have worked many years as a microbiologist in NYC a teaching hospital loved teaching medical residents and fellows . I love teaching anything human body related , Anatomy ,Biology , Microbiology and Biochemistry . I strive to help my students understand all the hard core facts in a fun way . hope you are ready to have some fun learning.

My story ending me being a life coach in food and wellness

I was a heavy young female at my heaviest 225 pounds I went up to size 3xl and pant size 22 -24. At my early twenties diagnosed with diabetes although no family history, had started symptoms of pcos then diagnosed with hyper tension,
arthritis spent years with swollen foot with no diagnosis, irritable bowl syndrome very low immunity depression…. and the list was going on and on and on, each doctors visit was an addition to medicine my sugar went out of control age thirty and had multiple meds to put under control. Of course I went through all-conventional diets out there joined gyms as everyone does .And failure after the other?

So how did this happen 65 pounds less, size medium and 8 pants, controlled diabetes without medicine although I was on high increasing dose of insulin?

MINDSET , yes no restricted diets or heavy exercise it was all about awareness and mindset work , I discovered I am fighting the wrong battle, there are many reasons and underlining issues once I was aware of them I went on a journey of healing only then I was able to live the healthy lifestyle that is serving my body good, living life in full, reached many goals without much effort.

Thank you so much for taking the time to know me better , looking forward to working with you .
