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.

Morgan W

Instruments:

Morgan began playing Guitar at the age of 12.  In 2010, he graduated from the University of Idaho with a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance.  In his time there he studied under Professor James Reid, as well as working heavily with Vern Sielert, Professor of Jazz Studies, and Daniel Bukvich, Professor of Percussion and Composition.  Having performed in a variety of ensembles and bands ranging from Rock, Metal, Blues, Funk, Fusion, Small Combo and Big Band Jazz, Classical Guitar ensembles, Jazz choirs, and concert choirs, Morgan has a diverse number of styles at his disposal.  Morgan’s most notable influences are Progressive Rock and Metal bands such as Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree and Rush as well as Modern Jazz Fusion and Guitar instrumental music.  Primarily an Electric Guitarist, Morgan is known for his technical proficiency on the instrument and his ability to combine his technique with the soulfulness of Blues and Jazz, and the sophistication of Classical music.  As well as performing with dozens of ensembles across the Northwest, Morgan is also an aspiring composer having written dozens of compositions for Rock Bands, Jazz combos, Choirs, and Strings.  Morgan has been playing guitar for 12 years.

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.

Jared C

Instruments:

Teaching guitar has become one of the great joys of my life.  I really enjoy meeting people of all different ages and backgrounds, and helping them to discover how music will fit in their lives.  I have no preference on a students goals, and am completely fine teaching beginners, casual players, or students who would like a more serious approach.  I prepare lesson plans for each of my students and I try hard and keep the curriculum fun and relative to the students interest.  All of my students are also welcome to particapate in the student recitals I hold twice a year, although these are not manditory.   Music has helped guide me through most of my life, and given me some of my greatest experiences.  I even met my wife at a show!  I am passionate about helping others to make music a part of their life!

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For young beginners, it is suggested that they start their guitar lessons by playing half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. Older students may be able to start off using an electric guitar, under the condition that they find it comfortable to hold. A student model guitar can be purchased in the $150 -$200 price range new, however, extra costs will need to be considered for electric guitar players, as amplification and cables will need to be purchased as well. Higher quality instruments tend to be easier to play, which will facilitate students enjoyment and progression in learning to play the guitar.
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.
The most important thing is that students learn how to have fun when they are playing the guitar! It can be a challenge to master the basics, and it does take a lot of practice, but with the proper teacher, students can be playing their favorite songs without too much trouble. Topics covered during guitar lessons include: learning the notes, open chords, and barre chords, learning how to strum and pluck with the fingers and pick, and also sightreading techniques and music theory.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the guitar do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite tunes, learn to compose your own music, develop a new technique or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time. With regular lessons and plenty of practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and will be well on your way to achieving your goals.
Children need three main things in order to begin guitar lessons: physical dexterity in their hands, patience and commitment to practice between lessons, and the maturity to work well with the teacher. It takes a lot of hard work and daily practice for students to improve to a point where they can play their favorite songs - parents play a big role in determining a students success.
