    My daughter loves going to paino class with Mallory. She has helped my daughter grow in her love of music. The teachers and staff really care about each student's success. We've only had Mallory, but everyone is genuine and passionate about their teachings. If anyone wants to learn to play an instrument, this is definitely the right place.

    My 4 years old daughter Had a happy experience with piano teacher Miss Haley! She is very patient and nice to my daughter. Sometimes my daughter is frustrated and Miss Haley always keeps her up and interested in Learning piano. Besides, the school provides excellent books for toddlers to start piano!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We have a conversation during the Trial Meet and Greet to discuss goals and learning styles, as well as general likes and musical passions. This way we can go forward with clear understanding and work towards catering lessons to each invidivuals needs. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

All of our instructors at Northwest School of Music have either a degree in Music, in process of their degree, and/or have direct experience in both music teaching and performing.

How did you get started teaching?

The Executive Director at Northwest School of Music, Mallory Livingston, began teaching at her own private studio when she was 14 years old, under the suggestion, direction, and mentorship of her piano instructor, Kristin Vining, at Witmen College in Walla Walla. 

After joining the team at Northwest School of Music as a piano and voice instructor, she later became the owner and Executive Director in June of 2017. 

What types of students have you worked with?

We work with students of all ages and abilities. Children as young as 3 years old are sometimes ready for private lessons (otherwise we have Kindermusic classes available), and students gray with wisdom can be ready to begin or continue their musical journey as well!
