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.

Michael M

Instruments:

I am a composer, songwriter, piano player, recording artist, and producer.  I have released ten CDs since the year 2000.  Two of the releases are with the Monroe Institute which makes Hemi-Sync music to balance brain wave patterns and assist with learning, focus, creativity, and ADD.    I also play piano for dance classes, both modern and ballet, at the University of Washington, and other dance schools in the Puget Sound Area.   

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.

Geoffrey W

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and enthusiatic instructor that loves sharing the gift of music with my students. I have been working professionally as a musician since I was thirteen years old playing in acoustic acts, jazz big bands, cover bands, original rock acts, jazz combos and doing solo classical guitar performances. I've toured, done countless studio sessions and have played in orchestra pits for musicals. One of my favorite performances was with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute Orchestra in 1987 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.  My other passion is composing and producing in every style imaginable and I have music in shows with NBC Universal and A&E as well as countless corporate and industrial projects. I love integrating my compositional backhround into my intrument lessons when appropriate to give my students a broader knowledge of how to use their instrument(s) and possibly compose themselves. I'm very patient and comfortable working with the novice to the most advanced players.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is highly recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, on the basis that they can hold it correctly and with comfort. For between $150 - $200, many student model guitars can be bought from new. Electric guitar players will also need to purchase an amplifier and guitar cables, at additional costs. Remember, higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which will likely enhance the students enjoyment and development the instrument.
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.
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!
We recommend that students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind - such as learning to play a few of their favorite songs. When you start lessons, a teacher will help you unlock the skills required to reach your goals. Keep in mind that you might not be able to start off with the exact song you want to learn - it could take months of study and practice to learn all of the notes and chords required to turn your dream into a reality.
Consider starting guitar lessons around age 6, and when a student shows lots of interest in playing the guitar. Young kids will do better with a half or three-quarter size guitar, while kids 12 and up can handle a full size acoustic or an electric guitar. If you are starting students at a very young age, just remember that they must have a minimum amount of hand strength and will have to practice every day!
