About Jeremy
A Berklee College of Music graduate and a professional music instructor for over ten years, I can help you to reach your musical goals. I tailor lessons to suit your needs covering everything from skill development, music theory and musicianship, to expanding your repertoire and composing original work. I play and teach drums, piano, bass and guitar. I am new to Seattle, having just moved from San Francisco where I performed regularly at a wide array of venues such as Great American Music Hall, Freight and Salvage, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Bimbos, Bottom of the Hill, Savanna Jazz, Amnesia, Ashkenaz, Mystic Theater and Cafe Du Nord. I play many styles of music. Jazz, rock, funk, punk, blue-grass... you name it. I can show you how to play what you want to play.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in a strong musical foundati
on and that learning to play music should be fun!

*** Specialties ***
Whatever style the student is attempting, I stress proper technique and understanding of theory.

About Kaley
Dr. Kaley Lane Eaton is a composer and soprano currently based in Seattle, WA. Her work has been performed across the US and internationally, in venues ranging from Hong Kong concert halls, to the streets of Skid Row in Los Angeles. Eaton's work crosses genre boundaries, exploring how the voice, body, and unconscious world of the performer can provide musical narratives through live digital processing, machine listening, sensors, and improvisation. Her "startling," "intriguing," "fresh," and "thoughtful" compositions are quickly gaining notoriety for combining innovative digital technology with ancient performance practices.

In addition to frequently performing her own work in bars, concert halls, living rooms, and (hopefully, someday) the lobbies of Seattle's new and overpriced luxury condo buildings, she is an avid cross-disciplinary
collaborator. Recent collaborations include Karin Stevens Dance, Mazumal (cellist Olivia J.P. Harris and soprano Felicia Chen), flutist Leanna Keith, forty/sixty, Strange Interlude, violist Heather Bentley, and saxophonist Steve Treseler. She has been awarded residencies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts (2017 associate artist with master artist Derek Bermel) and the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences (2017) where she was awarded the distinguished Holland and Knight Fellowship. Her electroacoustic opera lily [bloom in my darkness], featuring an original libretto by Canadian author felicia klingenberg and choreography by Karin Stevens, premiered in June 2017 with the support of 4Culture's Tech Specific Grant Program. lily is also the recipient of the 2017 International Alliance for Women In Music's Pauline Oliveros New Genre prize for works exploring electroacoustic media and innovative form and style. It will be produced again in Fall 2018 with Karin Stevens Dance and the Universal Language Project alongside her new work LUNG for 6 loudspeakers, interactive electronics, dancers and large ensemble.

With flutist Leanna Keith, Eaton is co-founder of Stack Effect, a flute and voice duo. Also with Keith and violist Heather Bentley, Eaton co-directs Kin of the Moon, an improvisation-centric and technology-friendly chamber music series in Seattle. Both Stack Effect and Kin of the Moon have enjoyed recent features at new music festivals such as Oh My Ears! in Phoenix, NUMUS NW in Seattle, and the National Flute Association Convention.

As a writer with particular interest in the role of musical composition's relationship to our larger culture, Eaton has been published by KING FM's Second Inversion ("Women, Creativity, and the Classroom" (2016) and "Reflections on Wilderness" (2017)) and Common Tone Arts ("Things I wish I had known when I thought I couldn't be a composer" (2017)).

Eaton holds a DMA in composition from the University of Washington and teaches at Seattle Pacific University.

Great piano and voice teacher

Ms. E combined talents as an accomplished pianist and singer were a blessing for our daughter. Under her tutelage she has blossomed into a lovely musician. When she decided to take on voice as well Ms.E skillfully guided her and wisely allowed her to choose music she loved.

We miss her energy and unique abilities as a teacher to inspire a love of music. Her weekly visits were always met with great anticipation and left our daughter singing up the stairs.

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!

I have played the guitar my entire life and never lost my love for it (even when I tried!). I have a bachelor's degree in guitar from Wichita State University where I studied with jazz guitar legend Jerry Hahn (Rolling Stone magazine called him one of the top 3 jazz guitarists in the world). From there I traveled to Hollywood, CA where I attended G.I.T. at the Musicians Institute. I spent several years travelling the Pacific Northwest with different rock bands before settling down to a career in financial services and becoming a husband and father.

About Greg
Hello! I am a vocal music teacher with over 15 years of experience in singing and performing.

I currently teach music at Seattle World School, where I focus on singing, vocal technique, and music theory.

I have studied and been trained in multiple genres, and I can assist students in using healthy vocal technique for any style of music.

About Alina
I've been involved in everything art-related as long as I can remember myself, whether it was music, dance, or theater.
I performed on any occasion, and at every opportunity. I always noticed how much joy it brought to people. That notion stuck with me to this day.

Music plays a big role in our lives. It is therapeutic, helps build self-confidence, and is a great way to express your individuality.

I consider myself a laid back teacher, and focus on instilling a long-term love and appreciation for music and performance.
My approach to music education is holistic. I incorporate all musical aspects during lessons -- rhythm, ear training, sight reading, theory, and technique.
I believe that anyone can learn music, and I enjoy empowering students by helping them achieve their goals.

Come, learn in a fun and professional environme
nt, in my fully equipped studio!

About Brooke
My main goal as a teacher is for you to have fun while you are working towards your goals! During each lesson I focus on technique and intonation to build a strong musical foundation. I also include resources such as games, songs, and various activities to make lessons enjoyable and educational for all students. The more fun you have while learning your instrument, the more information you will be able to remember later on!

Aside from the fun stuff, I also work on important skills that benefits students inside and outside of lessons. Playing in front of people can be scary, so I work with each student to help them develop their own strategy so they can overcome any existing stage fright. I also work with students on building their showmanship skills to make them feel more confident in performance settings with their instrument.

***
Lesson Details***
For online lessons, I suggest using a quiet space free from distractions. Have a notebook and a pencil handy to write down instructions during your lesson so you can reference it during your weekly practice. Please be on time when logging on for your lesson.

***Weekly Practice***
One of the most common questions I am asked as a teacher is how much a student should practice during the week. Beginning students are expected to practice a minimum of 120 minutes (or two hours) a week. This can be divided into 30 minutes a day for four days a week. I have found that these numbers have provided excellent results for students during the first six months of playing.

***Other Details***
Students are responsible for providing their own instrument and any other required books or accessories.

About Elizabeth
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and guitarist. I graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Music Education and have been teaching and performing for over 10 years.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels but specialize in teaching young beginner children. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I tour the nation with my b
and and have a deep passion for performing. As a professional musician I offer insight into what it means to be an artist and foster that creative force in all of my students. I love sharing my love of music with my students and look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better musician!

Over our first few lessons I will assess your ability level and generate a lesson plan tailored to fit your skills and interests. While I specialize in jazz, the focus of the lessons is completely up to you and what you want to learn. I'm capable of teaching instrumental proficiency, sight reading skills (note/rhythm identification), music theory, ear training, and improvisation.
