Hi! My name is Anita, and I have operated a flute studio in the Phoenix Valley since 2010, and have now moved to Seattle to pursue my Ph.D. at the UW. I also teach beginning-intermediate piano. I was a full-time Band Director for the Glendale Elementary School District in Glendale, Arizona for five years, teaching grades K-8 band and general music. I specialize in teaching beginners, moving quickly to establish a quality of tone and practice procedures to master the instrument for whatever purpose (school enrichment, personal enjoyment, performance, auditions for college, whatever you want to do!)

I begin all guitar students with rhythm guitar technique which I find to be less tedious than pluncking out melodies from a method book.  This gives the student the feeling of actually performing a song after just a few lessons.  From there, students go on to develop a comprehensive vocabular of chords, rhythmic patterns/techniques, scales and melodic techniques, and a foundational knowledge of music theory. All materials are generated in the lessons depending on the students needs and progress so no additional materials are needed.

I enjoy helping my students discover their own individual learning style, and with this knowledge I am able to adjust my teaching method appropriately. In developing a passion for music, it is important to first determine the type of music you enjoy. Students naturally want to learn and play the music they love, so the genre of music that I teach depends on the student's preference.

I'm a dedicated and passionate instructor who enjoys working with students and familes. I love sharing what I know with my students! In 2011, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Trinity Lutheran College with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Worship degree. I have performed in a touring ensemble in California and in the greater Seattle/Everett/Tacoma area I've performed in open mics, gigs, community band, community theatre, musical theatre and choir. I am also a singer-songwriter and have performed original songs. I was recently seen performing guitar in the orchestra for Cotton Patch Gospel with The Red Curtain Foundation and as an actor and accompianist in It's A Wonderful Life, A Live Radio Play at Warm Beach's dinner theatre, 2014.

Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you see your pupils happily growing and accomplishing every goal they set up for themselves. Since everyone is unique and works at their own pace, I don't think it's fair to approach every student the same way. It is of paramount importance that instructors not only pay close attention to their student's progress, but also their lack of progress in whatever areas they may be struggling in. As a mentor, I do my best to listen to each individual's unique needs and address them in a way that will inspire dedication and determination instead self consciousness and apathy.

Saxophone Reed Strength

...There are short-term options, if you need a reed to perform well immediately, and there are long-term strategies, which are ultimately more effective. If you need a soft reed to play better, you can try pushing the reed up on the mouthpiece, so that the reed extends slightly past the tip of the mouthpiece. This will make the reed feel a little thicker. Conversely, if you need a hard reed to play better, you can lower the reed on the mouthpiece so part of the tip of the mouthpiece is visible. You can also move the tip of the reed side to side, if one ... Read More

...By now, if you or your child have been studying viola for any amount of time, you are probably familiar with the unfortunate identity crisis that violists face on a regular basis. You are used to fielding questions and comments from eager aspiring music appreciators: What is a viola? That’s like the big violin, right? Is that the one you play sitting down?

Listening to Jazz: A Beginner's Guide

...grasp on to different things. How do you think people that are tone-deaf or rhythmically-challenged perceive music? Many people grasp on to the lyrics. If you understand the language, you understand the song. This is why a lot of people don’t enjoy listening to jazz or other instrumental music.   Music is an aural art. As strange as it sounds, it’s easy to forget that these days. It baffles me when people post comments on a YouTube video asking for the “notes” or the “TABS” to some easy song that is being played. I guess I have some idea where this comes ... Read More

Belt Mix Untangled: A 5-Step Guide

...few pitches above your break on an “ng” hum (tongue raised, mouth open). You should feel very little transition through the break and more flexibility than when you sang during the previous step. Now try the singing the same exercise once again on an “Ee” vowel (like the word, “knee”), keeping the voice resonating in the same places in the face as when singing the “ng” hum.   Engage your full breath support—yes, we are coming back to the breath because it’s THAT important for successful results. Start by taking a low, long inhale, imagining that you are filling your entire torso with air (front, back, sides). Then, ... Read More

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
