Bass Guitar is one of my specialties..

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!

I started playing bass at 14 and was on tour by the time I was 16. Since then I've enjoyed teaching and playing in college groups, civic organizations and spreading the joy of bass. From upright bass to electric I have the performance experience and the teaching ability to help you reach for the stars.

About Jeremy
I have been a professional performing musician and producer for over 10 years and have had hundreds of students during that time. I grew up playing classic rock and classical. By the time I graduated high school I had visited 26 states playing music. I have studied music at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma and have performed in various groups. I have a unique passion for teaching music and making it fun. I have the classical training and performance experience to help take your musicianship to the next level while having a blast.

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

This class is perfect for beginners and intermediate students! We will learn techniques, styles and how to craft our tone while studying the history of the bass guitar and the influential musicians who played them.

About Rachel
I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm.

I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
ns, and Pony Up.

When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.

My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.

Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.

Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.

Guitar:
Finger Picking, Song Writing, Rhythm, Lead, Scales,Modes & Ear Training.

Songwriting and composition: Learn techniques, how to brain storm and plot your musical story line. This class pairs great with vocal lessons or guitar lessons.

Bass:
Scales, Rhythm, Beginner and Advanced song structure, Ear Training

Ukulele :
Technique, Intro to Chords, Ear Training, Strumming patterns - Ukulele is one of my favorite classes to teach. You simply can not help but smile when playing this instrument!

Vocals :
Breathing techniques, Scales, Harmonizing

Rachel is the best guitar teacher I have ever had...period...EVER! Her easy going method allows me to learn just enough as a beginner to enjoy and then move on to the next lesson. We are not concerned with learning lengthy songs or long, drawn, out scales as I am only a beginner! But at the same time we are not learning row-row-row-your boat. I am learning chords, arpeggios, hammer-ons, lite theory, and all at a very short easy pace which is what I want. Five stars for her as a teacher by far!!!

Rachel is always positive and upbeat yet incredibly patient with our easily frustrated ukelele-pro-in-training. We look forward to more lessons and wisdom from an awesome teacher!

Students can expect to learn the proper left and right hand technique, memorize and play scales, play a walking bass line, learn bass parts to songs in many styles from rock and pop to Salsa and Nortenio. Students will learn bass lines to songs and styles they want to play.

About Steve
Yo hablo Epanol y Ingles y puedo conducir los leciones en Espanol.

My name is Steve and I enjoy playing/teaching guitar. I am patient with students. All I ask is that you make sure you have the time to study and practice daily for it is a commitment. I teach beginning and intermediate classical finger style guitar as well as electric/rock/blues and chord/scale theory. We can learn songs in their entirety with all details present. Learn classical, blues, classic rock songs (Note: for beginners, after we have gotten through the blues a little) metal (If you have a locking tremolo, you might have to make adjustments on it to facilitate the lower tunings usually used in metal nowadays but I can definitely help you with that.) Give me a call I would love to hear from you. Thank you :)

I am an experienced saxophonist/bassist and a student at the College of Southern. While working towards my degree in music, I've found joy and reward in sharing my passion with others. My lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, improvisation, technique, and more. Let's get started!

About Dylan
Music has been my life for as long as I can remember! I played saxophone all through school, participating in Solo & Ensemble, as well as All-County and All-State symphonic bands. As a student at CSM, I enjoy being a part of their Jazz Ensemble "Solid Brass", as well as their Latin Jazz group, "Ritmo Cache." I gig with a jazz combo and I also play bass in a rock band called "With Lying Eyes", playing frequent cover shows on the weekends and sometimes opening for national rock bands in the DMV area. I study saxophone under Randy Runyon at the college, in addition to taking music theory and ear training classes. I'm an experienced player and absolutely love sharing my passion for music with others. I work with people of all ages and help them unlock their potential to creatively express themselves through one of the most fun forms of art!

Learning music can empower your entire life! No matter if you are a beginner or a pro, I offer myself as an effective partner and coach to your creative expansion and musical self expression. What I bring to the table is over twenty years of experience as a teacher, seasoned professional musician, productivity and awareness educator, and seminar facilitator. I offer a unique transformational approach to learning that will supercharge your results. What you bring is an open mind and a commitment to learn. Learn the songs you want, at the pace you want. Discover your musical voice and your source of inspiration. See music theory and concepts in a new light that directly applies to your performance in the moment. Let's get started!

About Garry
My approach to music education can be summed up in this favorite quote by composer Robert Schumann - "It is music's lofty mission to shed light on the depths of the human heart".

I offer all aspects of music education including guitar, bass, ukulele, arrangers piano and recording technology and I promise accelerated results.

I am a an honor graduate of the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Boston. During my studies there, I was awarded, for three consecutive years, high achievement scholarships.

At Berklee, I started my career in music education with being offered the position of Ear Training Laboratory Manager. Later, I put together an ensemble class for four guitars and rhythm section called 'The Baroque Jazz Quartet' which was added to the advanced electives offered by Berklee.

I'm also known for leading a workshop c
alled the "Music Of Life Seminar". This work originated out of my collaboration with cellist and Senior Lecturer in Public Leadership, Ronald A. Heifetz who is the co-founder of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University.

I've studied privately with world-class musicians, the likes of; Tuck Andress on guitar, Kit Walker on piano. Herb Pomeroy for arranging, Mike Gibbs for composition, Mick Goodrick on guitar (ECM recording artist), the legendary Lenny Breau on guitar, Kai Eckhardt on bass, and in my formative years, Jazz great Charlie Byrd, among others.

I have played key roles in public performances with such notables as; acclaimed actress and singer Jill Eikenberry, keyboardist Raphael of the ‘Music To Disappear in’ fame, Grammy Award winning pianist Laura Sullivan, new age singer Sophia, among others. I have also performed in notable venues on both the East and West coast such as the Angelico Hall and the Berklee Performance Center.

I have co-produced, with producer Wayne Wallace of Bon Vivant Productions (Machete' Ensemble and Pete Escovedo Orchestra), my own album of instrumental music through the label Delvian Records called “Motion” were I was joined by some top players from the music community.

“When my students experience a greater and more inclusive sense of humanity and of their own and others beauty, I am filled up with joy. Imparting the energy and feeling of music creation is a shared experience of freedom unlike anything else. This is why I have a passion for music and music education”.

I highly recommend guitar lessons with Gary Norman. Gary is a tremendously talented guitar player and an equally capable, creative and thoughtful teacher. His knowledge of music theory is outstanding – a testament to his graduate degree from the Berklee College of Music, one of the premier music colleges in the country. Additionally, he is very creative in his teaching methods as he tailors his lessons to the learning style of the student. For me, I required assistance with understanding the basic elements and timing of a composition before I could move on to the rhythm and strum patterns and ultimately the melody and words. Most importantly, Gary is patient and attentive which makes learning or mastering your guitar stress free. Overall, my lessons have been well worth the time and investment - I'm a much better and more informed player now that I have been lucky enough to study with Gary.

I have been playing playing guitar for a long time, was a music major in college and have played semi-professionally. I went to Garry for his high level of knowledge of jazz harmony and wasn’t disappointed. He broke down my questions into simple understandable terms and really cleared the fog for me. Garry is also a great player—I could sit and listen to his solo guitar arrangements all day!
