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.
Our daughter has taken voice lessons with Aaron for about 3 years and really loves her time in his studio. Aaron has a wonderful ability to connect and has really helped her become the confident singer she is today. Bitterlake Studio is an extremely warm, positive, safe and inspriring environment and Aaron is the most supportive teacher. He is a very talented musician and a passionate and artistic person. His presence puts her at ease with a confidence to explore her strenghts and weaknesses. We are so grateful for Aaron making it a challenging but very fun learning experience for our daughter.
We loved this band for our event! They were professional, organized, and experienced in facilitating all of our events needs. We were on ship in the harbor and the performance was enjoyed by all our guest. The band was a talented group of musicians and singers who enjoy what they do and are extremely fun to watch.
Free Rain was awesome - organized and professional up front while planning the wedding gig - and super fun + talented musicians. Made for an amazing dance party!
Very professional and played beautifully during the entire event. They were on time and friendly with guests. Great duo!
We hired the Michael Benson Band to play at our wedding at Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island. Since we were bringing the band all the way over to the island, we decided to put them to work throughout the entire event! Michael and one bandmate performed a guitar/sax duo for our Ceremony, then Michael played some keyboard music for the Cocktail Hour, and then the whole 5-piece band played for our four hour Reception. Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with both before and during the event! They are all excellent musicians and we loved the music throughout the event. Michael did a fantastic job of being the "MC" during the reception and made sure that it kept its flow throughout the night! We would not hesitate to hire them again! Definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding night!
It was/has been the best decision I have made in my life music wise. She knows her stuff and she pushes/inspires you to be the best musician you can be. If you have a love for music and you are serious about improving your talent then I suggest that you give her call, you won't regret it. :)
Sarah introduced our children to the world of music and piano five years ago and was a steady and constant guide on their journey, providing them with exceptional technical skills while encouraging an appreciation for the art of music and what it means to be a musician. She also understands how to keep kids motivated.
Charlotte played my wedding in Oregon. I gave her a budget and the style I was looking for and she found a group to accompany her that was perfect. They played jazz and a piano solo for the ceremony and country for the reception. It was exactly what I wanted. She was very professional and gave me peace of mind by taking care of things before I could even think about them. I would highly recommend her services.
Melanie Stevens has taught my daughter piano for years. She is a talented musician and a gifted teacher. I have been very impressed with her ability to adapt her teaching to “where my daughter is” at any given time. She is very kind, extremely patient, and makes the lessons fun. I feel so fortunate to have found her and look forward to continuing lessons as my daughter progresses with piano.
James made my little wedding celebration very special. He is a very skilled musician. Highly recommend.
RL is a fantastic musician! Excellent communication and coordination leading up to event. Exceedingly professional, flexible and understanding. He was instrumental in creating a memorable evening.
Band was absolutely amazing and with much better musicians at a lower price than other bands we checked out. They were able to learn and master our first dance songs on a last minute basis, play some unexpected live requests, and even allow our friends to join and sing on a couple tunes. Many people complimented the vocalist and the band in general at the end of the night as well. Highly recommend. I have background in music, and these guys know how to play.
They literally made the party and everyone talked about how awesome the band was. Great musicians, great people, flexible and fun. Would recommend them in a heartbeat and will definitely hire them for my next party (whenever that will be)
Awesome band. Very nice people. I would hire this band again in a heartbeat. I will have live music again next year for sure.
Amazing guitar player! What a perfect fit for an intimate venue whether it be a 5-star restaurant or a small bar he would be great. Also, a perfect fit for a private event where I have seen and heard him play. Interacted with everyone and has an easy going and friendly personality.
Olivia, Collin, and Mitch are everything you could ever wish for is a Jazz Trio. They are professional, friendly, and AMAZING MUSICIANS! These guys have a real magic when they play together! We recently did a recording together and the recording engineer was continually gushing: "Did you hear that? These guys are good!" In addition to all this they're extremely humble and easy to work with. Have a request? They'll go out of their way to meet it!
Bob has a laid back way of leading me to teach myself to improve my music. His ability to connect different music genres with the music we study gives me a depth of understanding that is hard to match. His flexibility allows our sessions to flow in a natural, yet most productive way. He has really helped me improve my skills as a musician and as a music listener. I would definitely recommend Bob to students of all ages.
Jan was excellent to deal with. Very prompt and efficient and a talented musician.

Set your event from the ordinary; make it extraordinary! "Darren Loucas plays beautiful, familiar melodies that soar and glide in the atmosphere of your unique event. His guitar playing is a masterful cocktail of pop, rock and blues, served with a feel for dynamics and pacing that will harmonize perfectly with the ambiance of your event." Depending on your event, you might want the "oomph" of upright bass or the "kick" of the drums, if you want people up and dancing. I have the privilege of playing with many of Seattle's top musicians, and I will work with you to assemble the perfect combo to meet your needs.
