Kelli C

Kelli has been singing, songwriting, and playing guitar for ten years. She is a self described folk-tronica artist. She brings lilting melodies, broadly painted string arrangements and just-on-the-gloopy side of cracked open drum machine sequences. Her music pulls from a nomadic history. A history that includes lives as a tap dancer, a military-wife, helper of the homeless, and music teacher. She creates music with a wish list mix of artist like producers Brian Deck (Iron and wine, Califone), Scott Colburn (Sun City Girls, Animal Collective), Jeffery Mcnulty (Vera Project) and other cool folk. She also goes under the moniker "Kelli's Starlight Wishes.' And in 2011 she received a grant from the Grammy Foundation. She currently resides on the label, Aphonia Recordings.

Matthew B

Instruments:

I am a 24 year old bassist who enjoys sharing my musical passion with others. I have studied the electric bass and the upright bass while attending Whitman college, focusing mostly on Jazz. I currently live in Brooklyn and play with my band, The Dogs. I've played on six records over the last two years including one that was named the fourth best free album of 2011.

Peter B

Instruments:

I've been performing, producing, collaborating, and teaching here in Washington now for around 20 years.  After earning a Bachelor of Musical Arts from Pacific University I began collaborating and performing with the area's top musical talent.  This array of experiences and musical relationships have given me what I believe to be unique insight into the art of music and how to approach it either as a career-minded professional or a recreationally-oriented amateur.  

Daniel W

Instruments:

I am a dedicated teacher who understands the enormous value of music and have devoted my life to it.  I care deeply about my students and thier musical dreams.  I graduated from Baylor University in 2011 with a degree in Music Theory and Jazz and then went on to pursue a Masters in Music Composition at the University of Houston.  All the while I've continued to hone my skills as a drummer and I have been fortunate to play with dozens of artists in every genre from classical and jazz to gospel, rock, and country.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for between $150 to $200. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar cables, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student with a much greater chance to enjoy and develop in their learning.
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take them to the teachers studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher who fits your needs and schedule.
At Musika, our teachers create lessons plans that are specifically customized to meet the needs of each individual student. Our experienced teachers can develop the skills of a complete beginner, or help to take an advanced players skills to the next level. Students can expect to learn such things as; how to correctly hold the guitar, learning the notes on the fret board and how to tune their instrument. Students will also learn techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and will learn to play various scales and chords, such as open chords, power chords and barre chords. They will learn how to combine these elements of guitar playing to create or cover complete compositions, as well as learning music theory and how to read music. Last but not least, our teachers will help students to realize the joys and fun that learning to play the guitar can bring!
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. Our experienced teachers can help you to develop the necessary skills to attain your musical goals. Learning any instrument can take time, as you will need to develop your co-ordination and muscle memory in order to start playing chords, riffs and solos. The best and quickest way to learn these fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Students aged as young as 6 years old are able to start taking guitar lessons with our expert teachers here at Musika. At this age, students will find it easiest to play a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings, and will learn how to play the top strings of the guitar and simple melodies. As they advance, they will start to form a range of different chords and learn to play more challenging songs. Usually by the age of 10-12 years old, students are capable of playing a full sized guitar and want to progress onto the electric guitar.
