Taking music lessons as an adult, i largely expected to feel the way i did taking lessons as a child. I never would have expected to learn everything from basic theory and technique to being able to compose pieces for multiple instruments within a month. Scott's approach is professional and relatable which is rare in a music teacher of his pedigree. I'am afforded an opportunity to grow as a complete musician with his ability to take daunting musical concepts and make them immediately understandable to a layman. I really do believe that whatever your musical goals are, he is a more than capable teacher. Its also worth noting that whenever i have had any questions throughout the week, he has taken the time to respond at length.
Jan is very good piano teacher. She is patient and fun with my kids and she is very flexible about the schedule of the piano lessons also. Good rate for her piano lesson comparing to the market. Highly recommended.
We unfortunately only attended one of Bryan's drum lessons .(only because my four year old wouldn't practice). Bryan was great! He even had on Aladdin, upon us arriving which made my daughter extra comfortable. It was a great ice breaker for them to talk about. I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone needing drum lessons ages kids to adult.
I’ve been studying guitar with Mary for about two months now, and I can’t say enough good about her. tl;dr: Mary will understand and support your goals for guitar playing, and she is beyond capable of helping you reach those goals. First, Mary is very supportive and cognizant of my goals as a musician. If I had a song in mind that I wanted to learn, I’m absolutely sure she would help me learn it. As a beginner, however, I don’t have anything in mind and happily play the tunes she gives me. Speaking of tunes, she has so many on hand. Every week she gives me new sheets with songs that cover the technique we work on. Mary’s extensive lesson repertoire certainly helps fulfill my goal of expanding my musical vocabulary to more artists and genres, all while developing my skills on guitar. Similar to her supportiveness, Mary is also very understanding yet insistent. As a busy young adult, on average I work eight to ten hours a day and follow a daily workout regimen to boot. While my goal is to practice guitar at least 60 minutes per day, on many days I don’t have time and fall short. Despite less-than-ideal practice, Mary accommodatingly works around the progress I make (or don’t make). At each lesson I can consistently expect help with last week’s trouble areas in addition to new material — Mary sure likes to press on. Can you blame her? There’s technique to master and songs to learn! :) On her teaching style, Mary is very creative. She customizes her lessons to the individual, and — I really like this about her — she tells me exactly what she wants to cover at the next two or three lessons. This way I know what she’ll teach, and I have the opportunity to discuss what I want to learn (e.g. scales, barre chords, etc.). With decades of guitar study under her belt, she can teach anything. By “teach” I mean make you really understand. She has countless analogies, anecdotes, and demonstrations for helping you learn or improve any technique. She’ll try things until it “clicks” for you. Teaching creativity like Mary’s is an invaluable skill that will undoubtedly help any student she has. To end on a light note, Mary truly is a spectacular musician. Her playing is effortless and always a joy to hear. She makes even the beginning things I’m working on sound musical and fun to play. Mary is a gem of a teacher, and I can’t recommend her enough.
Janina Beran is very experienced working with the younger kids. Both of my boys started taking piano lessons when they were about 4 and half years old. Janina is patient with them, always making sure my kids understand the piece that they are working on. Through Janina's encouragments, my older son, now 7 years old, plays in recitals twice a year and takes the annual piano guild exams. In addition, he performs in school talent show every year. I see a positive transformation from a shy boy to a confident on stage performer. My younger son has been taking lessons for 5 months now. He keeps talking about how he wants to play as good as his older brother and performs on stage in school one day. All thanks to Janina for believing in my kids and with all of her positive reinforcements she has been giving them. I am so grateful that I have found a wonderful piano teacher!
Ed is talent and wonderful instructor. My son enjoys and looks forward to his guitar lessons with Ed. It's been easy to schedule lessons and Ed's responsiveness to all emails is quick and commendable.
Jeremy has the credentials and skills to teach music. But above that he is personable. Able to teach new skills or correct old bad habits. I come away from my lesson feeling uplifted and feeling that whatever talent I may have has been affirmed. I also feel that I can do anything because Jeremy believes I can Good with all ages.
Elaine has been teaching 3 of my children piano lessons for 3 years now. She has since added a 4th. She is patient and encouraging yet firm. She makes sure they strive to do their best and teaches strong technique. She also include improv, ear training, and chords. Rather than just sticking to the books, Elaine is constantly coming up with fun, creative ways to reinforce the theory the kids are learning.
Minami has provided vocal and piano lessons for our tween daughter for several months. My daughter loves the instruction that Minami gives- a great combo of fun and learning. She is always positive and considerate with her feedback to the student while producing the results needed. I love the convenience of her home lessons as well as her prompt communication.
Taking guitar lessons with Matt was a great experience. He had extraordinary patience with me as I slowly learned, and had great advice to encourage me through the process. Matt recognized when I wasnt grasping a concept, and used creative strategies to help me along. He is a very talented guitar player, and just as great of a teacher. I would highly recommend him.
Absolutely amazing! I am a total beginner but he instills confidence and makes everything seem so easy and doable! I'm so very happy to have connected with him and I don't hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking about taking piano lessons! I'm learning and really enjoying this!
Amber is a very patient and through teacher who is well educated in music and child development. She has a genuine love for music which I'm so happy to see is contagious to my kiddos! I have 2 children with special needs and she is the perfect teacher for them! My kids look forward to their music lessons and can't wait to show her what they practiced all week!
Ms Laleh is a great piano teacher. She has a very nice personality. she is very patient with her students. My 4 year old daughter takes private piano lessons with her,she absolutely enjoys her classes. she is experienced in teaching young kids and I highly recommend her.
I have been studying Vocals with Sami for 2 years. He is an amazing instructor, he is patient, kind and a blast to learn with. Every lesson is designed for me based on my progression from the week prior. He is always available to speak even when I don't have lessons to offer additional help. Thank you Sami for helping me become a better singer.
As a beginner level adult student, I've found that Sergey was a great teacher, giving me lots of useful tips to continue practising in my own time between lessons. Sergey has a lot of enthusiasm and passion for music and the piano which gave me more motivation to learn and continue learning. If my stay in Seattle was not so short I would have continued weekly lessons with him.
Enjoy the lessons. great teacher.
Liam Leo guitar on a regular basis for nearly two years and we couldn’t have been happier with his work. His skill as a musician was clear from the start. But equally impressive were his intangible skills. He was a great communicator with our son— a teacher who took learning seriously but also made learning fun. Leo always looked forward to his lessons, which to us was as good an indication as any of the quality of Liam’s work. But beyond that, Leo really professed as a musician under Liam’s guidance, learning elements of theory and fundamentals of technique but also learning to play a lot of really cool songs. Leo found Liam inspiring , so much so that Leo wound applying to the same arts school that Liam attended. He’s a sixth grader there now, happily building on the musical foundation that Liam helped lay for him.
Shawn is a wonderful and patient piano teacher. My daughter had lessons as a younger child and needed a change as she moved beyond the beginner stage. She's been with Shawn for about 8 months and her playing has improved significantly. She enjoys practicing again and is motivated by his instruction. He's offering her just the right amount of challenge, creativity and encouragement. And this is a 12 year old I'm talking about (hello parents of tweeners and teenagers)! We also appreciate his highly organized website and timely communication. All around Shawn is a fantastic, solid professional who is passionate about music, seriously grounded in theory and very consistent in his instruction with youth. If you're considering music lessons with him, you will be lucky to get on his schedule.
Thomas is a great guy. For me, the number one quality I look for in a colleague or partner is that they are someone that I would want to be my friend. Call me crazy, but I prefer to work with friends even though many might choose otherwise. To me this means working with people I trust, people I enjoy spending time with, and people that I know will work hard. All of these things are true of Thomas. Thomas is also of course a skilled musician that isn’t just a good guitar player and a teacher, but he loves music and he loves people, two essential components for being a great music teacher and a faculty member at TIA. Call us and book your lessons or classes with Thomas! Start having fun and making music.
Love this school! It's been great experience for both of my kids. We've been taking piano and guitar lessons for last 4 years
I have improved so much in just 8 months of studying with Rachelle! She is fantastic.
