I wanted to learn guitar, but felt some anxiety about my abilities. Gus was very encouraging and made me feel relaxed and confident. The lessons were matched to my abilities and interests so that, although challenging, they were fun too. Would recommend.

Ukulele is an instrument I've come to play a lot and really appreciate in recent years, and I love to teach it! I've got you covered for CLASSIC Ukulele songs as well other familiar non-Uke recordings for a new twist. Chord sequences, scales, strum and pick-patterns.. just like all my lessons we'll cover music's essentials.

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!

With Ukulele lessons the main goal is to create a student-teacher environment where we can have fun and learn simultaneously. The Ukulele is an inherently joyful instrument that can bring a smile to anyones face, and through lessons we will learn to harness this incredible power!
Lessons will consist of learning basic chords and singing songs! We will eventually progress to more harmonically complex chords as well as learning beginning and advanced music theory in the process.
We will learn music ranging form early American folk and blues to pop and jazz standards. I also like to focus on writing original songs on the Ukulele as well as any other personal musical goals students wish to achieve.

About Cameron
Cameron began playing guitar at the age of 14, as a kid who found great Inspiration in classic rock music, idolizing such groups as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Beatles, and many more. This was only the beginning of a life long intimate relationship with music and guitar playing. Since his first introduction to the guitar he quickly grew, establishing a love for blues and all of its incarnations, from Chicago Blues to the varying acoustic and electric styles found in New Orleans, Mississippi, and South Carolina among other places.
Through high school Cameron played in rock and blues bands writing original music and getting his first real experiences as a composer and a bandleader. High School was also the place where Cameron discovered his interest in Jazz music as he began playing guitar in the school's Jazz band. Following hi
gh school Cameron began playing more jazz music as he attended Bellevue College studying theory and composition with Dr. Brian Cobb and guitar performance with Mark Hillard Wilson. After this he soon met renowned Jazz Guitarist Chris Spencer, with whom he studied with for years to follow.
Cameron eventually found himself at Cornish College of the Arts where he received a Bachelors degree in Music Composition. While at Cornish he had the opportunity to play guitar and compose for Jazz Orchestras, Latin Jazz ensembles, and Modern Jazz groups while playing under the direction of internationally know musicians such as Wayne Horvitz, Tom Varner, Jovino Santos Neto and Chuck Deardorf.
In the realm of composition Cameron studied privately with composers Jarrad Powell and Tom Baker, with a deep focus in contemporary classical music. He is now the composer for the quickly rising interdisciplinary arts group the Pendleton House.
Currently Cameron spends his time working as a guitar player in Seattle while also writing chamber music for various ensembles and art groups. He performs on a regular basis with a variety of groups in the Seattle area including the Seattle based jazz trio Honeysuckle Rye, folk and bluegrass group Modern Bygones, as well as the orchestral pop band Sebastian and the Deep Blue.

*** Lesson Details ***
In the world of music education it is important to recognize that everyone learns differently and there is no universally prescribed teaching method that works for all students. Everyone must find how he or she learns best. As a teacher I acknowledge this and incorporate it into my method of instruction. Anyone can find success as a proficient instrumentalist if they are able to learn on there own terms and find what they are doing enjoyable.
Lessons will start with an assessment of what the student wants to learn and what their goals are. From there, we will determine the proper approach to meet those goals while keeping things fun and interesting. Once a particular skill level and interest are established I will develop an individualized lesson plan for the student to fit their wants and needs. The goal with beginning students is to get them up and running right away with chords and melodies, learning the fundamentals while being able to play their favorite songs. For all students I like to extensively focus on knowledge of the fret board and the many possible approaches to mastering it, as well as looking at creative practice methods and daily routines. A musician’s method of practicing can greatly determine their rate of improvement. For more intermediate and advanced students the general focus will shift to topics such as ear training, rhythm, music theory and music notation (if desired) and, their application to the guitar.
For students interested in composition, we will focus more on analysis and the application of theory. We will look at songs or pieces that are of interest to the student and take them apart to figure out what makes them great. We will also look at many different kinds of music and their construction. A large part of music composition in the 21st century is the integration of electronic and computer music. For students looking for an introduction into pre-recorded and live electronic music with or without the use of guitar or other instruments, this is strength of mine that I love to teach.
Whether you are a serious musician or just looking for a fun hobby, I can get you where you want to be in your musical life. I’m fun, friendly and music is my passion and profession and I love to share it.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring extra guitars if needed, acoustic or electric.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in getting beginners up and running right away while helping each guitarist to find there own voice and have fun at the same time! When playing non-original music I specialize in blues, jazz and popular music.

I really enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. His studio is great and he loves music. I learned some basic musical concepts and got to play a song at my first lesson...an old blues song that has been recorded by many different kinds of artists. I went home with assignments to practice tuning, a few chords, rhythm, and finger picking....just some introductory experiences. Cameron is professional and obviously loves teaching people I look forward to my next lesson!

Ukulele is a newer instrument to me, but I have been teaching and performing for over 8 years now. I have played music since age 5 starting with violin and later guitar, which I studied at Berklee College of Music. Uke became a recent passion as I formed an acoustic duo of cello and ukulele (and singing) called DvOd that has performed all over the NW and released a CD. I provide a core curriculum of basic technique and music knowledge, combined with customizing to the student's interest. From Traditional Hawaiian to Eddie Vedder to Jake Shimabukuro, I can help you learn your favorites.

About Eric

I have been teaching for over 10 years, performing and recording as a singer/songwriter/guitarist for over 25 years. Berklee College of Music alumnus. All styles of guitar, classical, jazz, blues, rock, acoustic, electric. Suzuki method violin and cello as well as fiddle and folk styles.

My experience has been totally amazing. I'd never played any instruments before and didn't expect to pick anything up very quickly since I'm older and I've held judgments about when the right time to pick up musical skills. But when I sat down for the first time at the piano, Mendeleyev (Lev for short) gave me a few different techniques both kinetically and visually to work with right off the bat. Learning in multiple ways helped me retain what he showed me so I could begin to build from there everytime we played from then on. With the drum kit he let me play freely and then brought my awareness to what my hands were doing and walked me through simplifying and keeping beats. I think he's very in touch with intuitively guiding students in a way that doesn't criticize or judge. His patience and encouragment has been so helpful in allowing me to let go of my fear that what I'm playing can't sound good or improve; and the fantastic thing is that I am seeing improvement all the time! I would definitely recommend Lev as an instructor. I can't choose more than one instrument for lessons, but he's helped me with piano, percussion, singing and even a bit of ukulele and guitar.

For students who have played an instrument prior to our lessons, I try and shape a curriculum entirely based upon the specific goals of the student, and I rarely use text books although I use a lot of exercises and educational material when appropriate.  I feel learning to play and transcribe songs and solos to increase a students self reliance and confidence is my most important job.  Most students come to me looking for structure so I try and provide a clear path to their goals. For students with no prior music experience I use text books, and exercises to strengthen their technique, expose them to musical ideas, and give them a foundation for basic theory.  After that is accomplished I move into a curriculum that is more personal to their specific goals.

About Jared
I have been playing instruments and performing live since I was 11 years old. Initially trained in classical piano I added guitar to my musical palette at the age of 14. In college I spent time continuing my studies in both piano and guitar and received a bachelors of fine arts with a concentration in jazz guitar from Columbia College Chicago in 2004.

I have since moved to Seattle, WA and have become a regular fixture in the music community as a guitar and theory teacher, songwriter/guitarist of the pop rock bands Electric NoNo and Warren Dunes, and co founder and producer of the The Big Ass Boom Box Festival Seattle and the Seattle X Southwest showcase at SXSW Festival in Austin. I have released five studio albums that have received regional and national attention, toured regionally and nationally, and perform regularly at Seattle ma
instays including The Crocodile, The Sunset, Columbia City Theater, and many more. My band recently performed at The Upstream Music Festival in downtown Seattle in March 2017.

I consider myself a life long student of music and I pride myself on my dedication to a complete understanding of my instrument. I offer beginner - advanced lessons for guitar and songwriting, and beginner - intermediate lessons for ukulele. I also administer a variety of workshops throughout the year for guitar, songwriting, and music theory, as well as bi annual student recitals.

I have taken acoustic and electric guitar lessons with Jared for several years. Through my own experience and my observation of Jared with other students, I would describe Jared as patient, encouraging, courteous, and respectful. His knowledge and facility with guitar-playing styles and techniques is vast. His understanding of music theory is infectious. He will proceed at your pace, not his. He makes a genuine effort to help his students identify and achieve their goals--and he's genuinely happy when they do. In short, Jared is an exemplary teacher. Highly recommended!

I've had the pleasure of learning from a couple of good teachers in my time. These were instructors with a clear fervor for music and a deft hand at instruction. Then there's Jared. With a calm and joyful persistence, one that not only holds onto an organic passion for music but one that also understands the unique challenges of the pupil, he guides the student through inevitable missteps and atonal chaos with a firm grace. His warmth and humor, coupled with a serious depth of music knowledge, are a must for the aspiring musician or the hobbyist. Whether your aims include songwriting, composition, or just plucking away in the garage, Jared's bespoke formula works. And, it's a joy while one partakes.

Best medicine I ever had!

Have you always wanted to play those Rebecca Sugar songs? Don't know how Jake Shimabukuro does it? Well, I can teach you!

About Rallen
I work well with kids and adults alike. I've had several family members ask me to teach them a thing or two on guitar or ukelele. For the really enthusiastic ones, they've gone on to become a church director or their band section leader. I have no flashy accolades or labels like being a professional recording artist, however, I am pursuing a degree for Music Education. Performing is not what I'd like to do all my life, it's teaching. But, for me to be able to teach, I need to be able to pay for college. At the moment, I don't have the income to immediately start at UMD.

You would be helping me out immensely and I will do my absolute best to help you learn some new chords or sing a riff or two. Thank you for reading this all the way through. Let's get started!

My lessons are tailored to your skills and interests, built on a foundation of good technique and musicianship that will make it easier and more fun to learn the uke.

About Chris
PHILOSOPHY
I believe that playing the ukulele is an investment in your (and your family's and your friends') happiness. Though it is a fun, light, and approachable instrument, it can also -- with time and practice -- be played skillfully and technically.

APPROACH
Where other instructors may just teach songs, I like to explore the "why" of everything: why a G7 instead of just a G? Why a certain strumming pattern? Why does the bridge change the second time around? This way, students pick up a little more theory and technique, making them all-around better musicians, and making it easier to pick up songs on their own.

GOAL
I think the world would be a happier place if everyone played the uke. Playing it is an act of meditation and mindfulness, it relaxes and centers you when you play. And, yes, it's also great at parties. I want to empowe
r and motivate students to continue learning on their own -- beyond what I'm able to teach -- so that the love of ukulele can spread beyond my reach.

ABOUT ME
I've been playing uke for a little over five years, but I've been a musician all my life. I played piano when I was younger, then guitar, and eventually bass. I have sung in a few bands and choruses, and I continue to play a variety of instruments today -- though primarily the uke.

I picked up my first ukulele on a trip up the Pacific Coast Highway and fell instantly in love with it. I like to play (and sing!) everything from contemporary pop songs to classical. I'm motivated by learning, and as a former high school English teacher and tutor, I know from experience that there's much to learn from teaching.
