About Masood
I started music lessons at the age of ten with private Piano lessons. I took lessons for 15 years with prominent teachers, while mastering piano technique with a wide array of classical repertoire, from Bach to Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin.
I have been teaching piano since 1984 and acquired the skills through interacting with a variety of students of all tastes and needs.
I am able to help a music oriented student reach at a better understanding of piano playing technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would like my students to listen carefully to what they play, and practice attentively, which takes less time and more learning material achieved.
I will evaluate which teaching method is suitable for my student after the orientation session.
An average music student will be able to read notes, count beats, and will have finished th
e basic course of piano lessons in 6 months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland digital piano keyboard

*** Travel Equipment ***

About Melissa
Hello and welcome to your studio!

I teach from the comfort of my home studio in the Everett/Snohomish area. My teaching style is developed specifically for each student based on their background and experience. I can help you learn to play the songs you love!

I enjoy sharing what I know with my fellow students. I have seen the impact music has on families; it unites them like a beautiful song. Some of my students take lessons along with their parents. This creates opportunities for duets and so much more. Many of my students compliment my patience and say they have learned so much in so little time.

Life with music is a journey but not only that it becomes part of your lifestyle. Being a good, dedicated student will bring so many wonderful moments and rewards as you take the journey with your instrument of choice. I have stude
nts entering talent shows, performing at assemblies, choir, open mics, musical theatre and locally for the elderly during Christmas.

About your lessons:

I host the following recitals: a Christmas and Spring recital.

Teaching Philosophy for Piano

* For the very young beginner (4-8), we will refer to Dogs and Birds, which is a wonderful book series developed in the United Kingdom that includes colorful illustrations making learning music enjoyable for the young musician.
* We will journey through Faber books and loose music material for your music studies.
* You will learn all major and minor scales.
* Other books like Bastien and Alfred will be included.
* Have fun playing songs.
* Learn to sightread.
* Ear-training development.
* Learn about technique and proper poster.
* Enjoy learning songs in classical style. Even the best jazz musicians recommend training classically before jazz.
* Learn solfege.
* For older learners you will refer to Faber studies, loose materials and Hanon drills.

Teaching Philosophy for Guitar

* The younger beginner will start with Alfred's kids guitar course.
* Learn how to read tablature and music.
* William Leavitt's Berkley guitar study.
* Learn how to play scales in the first position on your guitar.
* Build rhythm studies and cadences.
* Develop ear training and dexterity.
* Sightread chords and melodies.
* Play duets.
* Have fun playing songs.

About your instructor:

She later transferred to Trinity Lutheran College earning her Bachelor of Music degree in Music and Worship. She has been playing music since she was five years old. Melissa has been in touring bands in California, choir throughout college, community bands, open mics, gigs, musical theatre and theatre since 2005. She interned at the 5th Avenue Theatre in downtown Seattle. She was recently seen performing guitar along with one of her students in Cotton Patch Gospel. You may have also seen her as an accompanist and actor in It's A Wonderful Life, A Live Radio Play, at Warm Beach Camp's dinner theater, 2014. She's played music for residents at a retirement home, is getting ready to record her first full album and teaches music to children at Northshore Christian Academy.

I look forward to serving you as your music instructor!

About Natalie
Hello, I'm Natalie, and I am a soprano. I enjoy performing as a soloist, chamber singer, and professional chorister in the Pacific Northwest, Midwest, and Italy. I taught private voice lessons to middle school and high school students at an independent school, as well as free-lance lessons with adult singers, for my last three years in Chicago leading up to my move to Seattle recently. I also became a certified teacher in Illinois in music for K-12, including general music, band, orchestra, and chorus, which is what I used to do full time before deciding to balance my career more evenly between teaching and performing.

As a soloist, my recent performances include my Artist Diploma recital with Byron Shenkman (harpsichord) and Janet See (baroque flute), the Bach's Lunch concert series with Henry Lebedinsky (harpsichord, organ), and th
e Classical Music Nights at Cafe Racer concert series, all here in Seattle. Other significant solo performances include Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 (2015), Purcell’s Te Deum Laudamus (2014), Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer (2014), Fauré’s Requiem (2013), and Bach’s Magnificat (2012). As a chorister in 2013 I rocked it hard singing with the Rolling Stones. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in 2010 and 2015, respectively. I am a recent graduate of the Artist Diploma in Early Music program at Cornish College of the Arts.

I graduated from Juilliard (BA) and played 3 years with the New Jersey Symphony after which I moved to Europe where I was Principal cellist with a Swiss Orchestra ( Biel ). I teach the Leonard Rose bow arm technique. I believe he had the best bow arm in the business.

I work with the bow arm first with beginners and advanced players to get a better bow grip, bow stroke and bow change. The rudiments are important!

About Garrett
Hey! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Garrett Reynolds and I'm a professional record producer, violinist, and head recording engineer at the Electrokitty Sound Studio in Seattle, WA. I've been playing music since I picked up the violin at the age of 5 and I've continued to learn and grow in music ever since. Nowadays I am a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and a full time record producer at Electrokitty Recording. I get to work with all sorts of artists in the studio, from local indie bands to grammy award winning musicians on major labels. As a violinist, I have 21 years of playing and performance experience under my belt and I've been fortunate enough to tour the country with a handful of acts. As an instructor I take pride in sharing my knowledge with young musicians and seasoned pros alike. Wether you're l
ooking to pick up the violin and learn to play, or trying to figure out how to record your band at home...I'm here to help!

Garrett is a really knowledgeable teacher. He has really helped me improve my skills. I got lessons with Garrett in order to become more confident in my position as principle second. He helped me become a better leader and refine my skills further. Now I have better posture and are playing more properly. He is also a friendly and likable person. I don't like tutors with no personality because I get bored. Even though I have a busy schedule between work, cheer and school, we are always able to squeeze in a lesson somewhere. If you are busy like me and have an irregular schedule, Garret is your guy!
Overall, I am glad I chose Garrett as my Violin teacher because I've improved a ton since I've started lessons with him!

I asked Marina to help me understand how she is able to lift her playing above the constraints of the chord changes, while still maintaining the integrity of the composition. She had better answers than any teacher I've asked that question of. We worked on the concepts she shared together, and she gave me exercises I have been working with to integrate the new knowledge. I highly recommend lessons with her!
