Featured Issaquah Guitar Teachers

Kelli C

Instruments:

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 H

Instruments:

My name's Matt, I've been playing guitar since 1986 and have been teaching students music since 1991.  When not teaching, I'm usually found practicing or performing with my band onstage or at an open mic night somewhere. I've Networked & Jammed/Played With Many NW Legends including: Roger Fisher- (Heart) Lynn Sorensen- (Bad Company/KZOK's Spike & The Impalers/Paul Rogers) Jeff Kathan- (Paul Rogers Band/ Bad Co./Montrose)  Donny Evola- (Queensryche/Geoff Tate/Foghat)  Doug Mcgrew- (Geoff Tate/Queensryche)   I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. The only thing I think that I'm better at than music, is teaching others to do the same.. & I Absolutely Love It. Because of this, my students get better faster and have way more fun while learning..   

Andrew L

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate of Northwest University, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Contemporary Music Industry.  I have played guitar for over 10 years and have taught for over 5 years, while teaching over 10 students.  Since beginning to play guitar, I have done a lot of writing and learning about music.  I have studied music theory for over 4 years and work as a sound tech in a few different venues.  I have also performed in multiple venues and still perform from time to time.

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

For younger students, it is recommended that they use a half size, or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Provided they are able to hold it comfortably, older students may wish to start out on an electric guitar. A reasonable price for a new student model guitar would be between $150 - $200, although for electric guitar players, an amplifier and guitar leads/cables will need to be bought separately at an extra cost. The higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. This will make learning and playing more enjoyable for the student.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Musika plans its guitar lessons with the specific requirements of each individual student in mind. During the course of their guitar lessons, students can expect to learn; How to hold, tune and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favorite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
At Musika, we suggest that adult students looking to start guitar lessons do so with a specific aim or goal in mind. Beginners may have such goals as learning to play their favorite songs or to write their own music, whereas advanced students might want to develop a particular technique or aspect of their guitar playing. Irrespective of your experience or level, our teachers can help you to achieve your goals. Remember, developing playing skills can take time. The best way to ensure you achieve your goals is through regular lessons and consistent practice.
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika at age 6. For students this young, we recommend that they start off by using a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. Students in this age group will start by learning to play simple melodies using the top strings of the guitar, as will be able to progress on to forming chords and playing more advanced songs by the ages of 7-8 years old. Students are able to graduate to using a full sized guitar by ages 10-12, and will likely want to learn to play rock on an electric guitar.
