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 30 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

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.) I'm Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice!" - Go Team Blake!

4.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat

6.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime

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!

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

By the time we complete our lesson, you will be comfortable with which strings are which and will be able to play a simple piece using the classical finger picking technique! By the end of your first package of lessons, you will be able to play and read notes on all of the strings and play a small variety of lovely, performance-quality pieces.

A guitarist since 1996, I have trained in classical guitar using the Christopher Parkening method, and also teach from the Suzuki method. Students describe me as patient, fun, and encouraging! As your teacher, you can expect me to work with you from where you are, and with subjects and curriculum that match what you are interested in learning. *Please check my availability before signing up, as my time slots are quickly filling up!* I look forward to meeting you! Call Take Lessons today to sign up!

About Rachel

I have played and studied music for 30 years, performing internationally and appearing with groups on local and national radio and television, and have had the good fortune to share the stage and even record with some very talented individuals!

As for teaching, I've taught hundreds of students over almost 20 years, and over that time, I can say I've learned that what can make or break a student's success is whether or not they enjoy their teacher and the work they are doing.

I love helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing. I've been described by students as encouraging and fun, and my teaching style is warm, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage

fright! I work with you to play the music you enjoy and set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... It's what I love about what I do.

I began my violin studies at age 9, with my public school string program. I continued through high school and into college, playing and singing with auditioned district ensembles, school musicals, and chamber choirs, coming in as runner up in my high school's concerto competition, landing a full-tuition scholarship, and performing twice in Carnegie Hall. I studied opera, vocal pedagogy, and passed my piano proficiency exam from the advanced class.

In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and soon after, joined the Kansas City-based Celtic folk group, Tullamore. I have enjoyed 13 seasons with this lauded regional group, playing countless esteemed Celtic festivals across the country and embarking on five international tours of Ireland and Scotland, as well as a Caribbean cruise hosted for our fans. Our sixth international tour is scheduled for 2019 in Scotland.

In 2014, I relocated to Hampton, Virginia, where I auditioned for the Hampton Roads Philharmonic, and currently play as a first violinist.

From 2015-2018, I had the joy of fiddling and singing with Brackish Water Jamboree, an award-winning Americana band, featured on NPR's Blue Plate Special and Out of the Box series with Paul Shugrue, and host of the NorFOLK Festival.

Throughout this time, I have enjoyed teaching a full and enriching music studio of students: hosting recitals, open mics, and ensemble rehearsals, and watching students achieve goals they didn't know were even possible. I continue to teach online via Skype, Zoom, and TakeLessons Classroom, and I look forward to working with you to accomplish your own musical aspirations!

I've been working with Trevor for just over a year. His teaching goes beyond just dry technique and theory to answer the question "why am I doing this?" When you work with Trevor, there is purpose behind everything you do. He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions. If you don't know exactly where you want to go with your playing, Trevor will help you find that as well.

Nathan S.
Trevor is an amazing teacher! He works with you to make a plan to learn whatever interests you. I can bring in any kind of music or style of playing and he will help me learn all of the elements. He is happy to go as far into theory as you want or stay more high level. Also has been very helpful in transitioning from learning tunes to writing and recording my own songs. Highly recommend.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Hello, My name is Ryan. I am a Seattle native and artist. I began playing music here in the early 90s... My core instrument and the root of my knowledge is the guitar. I have been playing off and on for almost 30 years now. And by off and on I mean, we get busy in life and sometimes there's just not enough time for practice. However, I have been able to find happiness in just the smallest amount of time with my instrument and I hope you'll find a fraction of that happiness for yourself and if you do, believe me, you'll never regret making the effort. So I'll explain quickly my philosophy, It starts with making time. We all know that practice makes perfect and patience is the key to making your own particular artistic vision come to life. It is hard work but, with a little bit of time and effort, you can become the kind of player that you expect you can be. I approach teaching music from this perspective...I Endeavor to emulate those I enjoy listening to. This is my
philosophy. if

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Hey! I offer in person, one-on-one lessons in the Fort Collins, Colorado area. I recently received my Master's degree in music at University of Northern Colorado and received my Bachelors in guitar performance at Utah State University. I charge $30 for a half hour lesson and $50 for a full hour lesson. I also offer discounted skype lessons. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks

About Lance

My teaching philosophy is simple; I want to help my students achieve the goals they have with music. Whether that is learning a few simple Taylor Swift songs or passing a entrance audition into a university, I want to see my students succeed. I have worked on a curriculum that teaches skills and concepts that every musician must know. The combination of having a good curriculum in combination with teaching the students the music they love, creates good musicians and inspired students that are excited to come to guitar lessons each week.
I structure my lessons into four categories; lines, chords, technique, and repertoire. Lines can include melodies, scales, and for more advanced students soloing. Technique is an important area of focus for guitarists. Many older guitarists I know have injuries due to bad technique. Its very important to

instill proper technique in younger students so they won’t develop bad habits and have injuries later in life.
I love teaching guitar. It has been the most rewarding thing in my life. Seeing students gain confidence in their playing and also in themselves is an incredible experience. As a life long student of music myself I believe it is crucial to create musicians and music lovers out of our students.

Having a variety of experiences professionally and academically, I am very well suited to cater to the interests of my students. I am currently getting my Master's degree in classical guitar performance, but I often include a variety of styles in order to motivate your practice times at home. Whether you want really nail the sound of a Black Sabbath riff, learn to solo over a blues progression, or even learn a piano piece on guitar. I can help give you the tools to form your own musical identity.

About Seth

In my lessons, I make sure that I do my best to serve your interests. No matter what style of music you are passionate about, I want to help you develop that passion into musical ability. This is done through practice, analysis, reading, and listening. Even if you want to focus on metal or popular music, I will make sheet music arrangements of the music you already know and love, to better teach you how to read and interpret written music. Also, playing with recordings will often be a part of lessons to help prepare students for playing with other musicians. This holistic approach to teaching will ensure you are the best musician you can be, and not just another guitarist.

"Great experience

Great knowledgable teacher that will help improve your skills in music. made me a lot better guitar player"

"Enjoying Guitar Lessons

John does a great job teaching me how to play the guitar. He focuses on form, which is important and is patient when I don't get
something quite right. If you are looking for a qualified, friendly and professional instructor give him a try."

"I have been a classical guitar student of Bill's for the past 6 months. In retirement, I have decided to take what was an "off and on" affair with the cla
ssical guitar (I'm not a beginner) and, instead, commit the necessary time and energy to truly learning the instrument. These have been my first serious classical guitar lessons. Prior to these lessons, I was entirely "self-taught" which means I created a whole bunch of bad habits for myself and was not progressing at all. Bill refers to me as a "remedial" student which I think is a perfect description of my playing. Through Bill, I have learned proper technique which, in turn, has improved my tonality and musicality with the classical guitar. Bill has identified my bad habits, broken them down, shown the proper way to overcome them and makes sure I don't "back-slide" into my bad habits again. Bill paces the lessons according to ability, not covering material that's too advanced while still ensuring that the lesson is challenging. In each lesson, Bill is positive, encouraging yet kindly critical so that I know I am making progress yet always aware of what areas I need to work on. Bill has the right "make-up" for a teacher and I am pleased, and without reservation, to give Bill a 5 star rating."

"My experience with Raymond has been wonderful! I have been studying classical guitar with him for a few years and have steadily improved even though I ha
ve less time and energy to practice than I would like. Raymond teaches the process of learning music, and as I have opened up to this process, I have seen great results, not only in music, but in other aspects of my life and learning. Raymond's instincts about how to help me learn are an example of the way he goes the extra mile to tailor each student's instruction to their needs. Hearing him play is also incredibly inspiring! Along with his wonderful personality and sense of humor, these qualities keep me excited to play the guitar, and always brighten my day! I highly recommend Raymond as a teacher to anyone who loves music!"

Josh has been the best guitar teach I have had (I have had three others in the past). He is exceedingly patient, flexibl

I have a better understanding of the mechanics, style and technique of classical guitar than I had coming in and have learned some really excellent pieces. Josh works at my pace and understands when work and 'life' interfere with my ability to practice during the week."
