Music Lessons For All Ages & All Levels At The Music Factory
I encourage students to find their goals and together we make a pathway to success. In my studio we teach every instrument. Which is great.
I can refer folks to who best suits them this also helps with scheduling. You always get the time slot you need.
My studio is in Capital Hill area or just west of there by the Arboreetum.
we do recitals at a local venue every month or two and kids and adults love it!
We we have taught over 3000 lessons and have only had one or two complaints EVER!!!
We are all professional working artists! Fun to hang with and I meet all my students where they are. Personally develope a curriculum from the ground up custome made for each individual!
I have performed with famous people and local A list musicians my whole adult life. I love to perform and share my knowledge with others. Music is my life and for 20 years it has been my only job and main focus in in life. I believe that enthusiasm is contagious, I encourage students to find their on passions even if it's not music while sharing my passion for music with them.
I work with kids of all ages and in my studio there are other teachers it's like a family vibe. It's organic and a great place for parents or brothers and sisters to hang out while waiting for lessons.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Typical process for working with a new student is to find out what if any past experience they have with a musical instrument.
The he key is to be able to quickly meet the ardent where they are at and identify their goals.
where do you want to be in 5 years? 1 year? 6 months? 2 months?
Its fun meeting new people and helping them on their journey!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Yes lessons are ALREADY discounted and the discounted rates are based on weekly lessons.
If you take weekly lessons the rates are
$35 per half hour $45 per hour $55 per hour
because of the way we as humans learn information if you are serious about learning we don't reccomend anything less then weekly lessons or lessons once a week. If you practice a lot GREAT! And if you can't find the time at least you get your weekly session to KEEP YOU ON TRACK towards your goals.
If you just want to do a single lesson or less then four or five lessons a month (some months have 4 weeks some have 5 weeks) we can talk about that it would be more expensive though and depending on teacher availability.
How did you get started teaching?

Recently I recorded at Dave Marhews and Pearl Jams studio for my friends debut Blue Album. We are getting radio AirPlay and I am so proud of my friends. It was amazing and I can't wait to do it again.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
take a month of lessons first see how it goes.
You should know after 4 weeks if it is a good fit. The teacher should inspire you to stay on your path.
Listen em to the teachers music, if it blows your mind that's a bonus! You can ask them how they do it!
But ur not matter what find a teacher and stuck to it!
