About Jessica
Expect fun and relaxed lessons with an emphasis from the beginning of establishing a love and appreciation for music while developing and polishing technique!

Hello! My name is Jessi H. and I received a Bachelor’s of Art in Music from Bryn Mawr College and a Master’s of Music in Theory and Composition from the University of New Mexico. Playing with other people is a great joy and throughout my schooling and afterward, I have performed in in orchestras, chamber ensembles, pit ensembles, and in collaborations with artists in other mediums. I began teaching violin lessons during my undergraduate degree and have maintained a private studio since then, which has been full of a wide variety of students and has branched out to theory and composition.

My intention in the first few weeks of lessons is to identify the goals of each studen
t and how best they learn. While familiar with most teaching methods, I prefer to modify my style of teaching to what is effective for each student. If the student is motivated by what we are playing, then skills grow exponentially faster. Students are encouraged to perform in spring and winter recitals to showcase their progress.

After three to six months, my students can expect to have a solid foundation in the subject they are studying, a start on the repertoire or subjects of their choice, and motivation to keep going!

About James
*PLEASE NOTE: I don't travel to Bellevue, Mercer Island or anywhere that requires me to drive over I-90 or the 520 bridge. Sorry! 3 miles is my maximum distance of travel, and please take note of the time slot I have open (usually just a few).

I've been exploring music since age 13 when I started on guitar and electric bass. I've gigged around the Puget Sound area for over a decade and am passionate about many styles of music. I've played in jazz and blues ensembles while studying music in Boston and Seattle. I perform my own music. I play acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, ukulele, mandolin, piano, drums and I sing.

*** Lesson Details ***
Required Accessories: Music Stand, 3-Ring Binder, Sheet Protectors

Chords, scales and finger-picking are the three areas of guitar, ukulele and mandolin playing which I have my stu
dents work on each week (the areas for bass are; scales and the different types of bass playing methods). The format for my sheets is done in traditional music notation with a mix of tablature - the standard presentation for guitar books. Sessions are also divided more or less in half between working on fundamentals and working on songs. Music appreciation, learning to play with other instruments and play-alongs with recordings are also a part of my teaching platform. Students are encouraged to give song suggestions for learning, and it's one of my favorite aspects of being an instructor! My YouTube channel has some Student Favorites playlists with the most memorable and effective songs I've been teaching over the last decade. Cheers!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring one of my acoustics to my lessons.

About Andrew
My name is Andrew. I am a private guitar teacher in the Puyallup,WA area. I have been teaching professionally in the area for the past 6 years, and have been playing and studying the guitar since I was 11 years old. Music is my life, and teaching people to play this music on guitar is my passion. My focus is on the individual student, not on just one uniform curriculum. I teach each student at his/her own pace and in their musical interests, focusing on style, technique, and music theory. I have had many successful students over the years and have shown them that playing guitar is fulfilling, educational, and most of all fun. It is rewarding for both my students and myself to further this musical experience.

Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

Morgan is the best singing teacher I've ever had! She is kind, patient, understanding, and she cares a lot about vocal health. Morgan has helped me grow immensely in just a few months. My range has improved and my break is much better than it used to be. I used to have no high range at all and now I can touch a high E flat! I can't recommend her highly enough!

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

I am a drummer with 10+ years experience touring nationally and internationally, recording albums, and teaching drums. I have played with Kings Kaleidoscope, Emery, Propaganda, and more. I specialize in rock and hip-hop drumming, but I love to bounce around and I know other styles as well! I really believe in the importance of listening, dynamics, feel, and playing with other people, so that is what I prioritize in my lessons. However, if you want to learn rhythm reading, rudiments, and other formal disciplines I can teach you that as well! Feel free to send me a message and lets see if we can work something out.

About Susan
My teaching style is structured and focused. Then, I flex. I create a plan according to the goals and abilities of each student. Everyone learns differently! I listen to your goals and pay attention to how you best learn. A detailed studio policy and my overall philosophy of teaching will be given to you at your first lesson. My private home studio is in South Tacoma just off Hwy I-5.

If you are a harp student, there is no need to bring your own harp to the lesson unless you prefer to. I have two pedal harps and smaller lever harps for teaching. I am proud that my music studio is comfortable and visually stimulating as everywhere you look you see something musically inspiring.

If you do not yet own a harp, I have a rental harp available for a minimum of 4 month rental programs up to 1 yr rentals. I carry the insurance on the rental h
arps. In addition, if you hope to purchase your own harp I am happy to assist you in your search locally for a quality affordable instrument.

I have openings currently on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the middle of the day, perfect for homeschool students and flexible adults. No evening or weekend lessons, including Fridays. School aged students have lessons once a week. Some adults choose to come every other week, or less frequently.

Feel free to ask any question or just stop by to say HI! and tell me what your goals are. We can start there and discover how to best serve your musical needs.
