Have Fun!

Please tell me if you’re not thoroughly enjoying your lessons, and we’ll work out what’s needed to make this an awesome experience. I love structure, but I’ll be as flexible as I can to ensure that your needs are met.

    Register here or in person.

Group/split lessons: $20 per additional student.

Cancellations

Please let me know at least 48 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson. You can manage your lessons through my Scheduling page or contact me at my email or (206) 496-2905. Without 48 hours’ notice, you will be charged full price for a missed lesson. No exceptions; please don’t ask.

If you need to cancel on short notice (e.g. illness, traffic, logistics, life), you still have a few options.

  • You could Skype in. A handful of my students already take Skype lessons from various parts of the world, or from across town when the traffic’s intolerable.
  • You could send someone in your place. As long as I have a heads up, I could do a one-time lesson with a family member or friend on guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, banjo, piano, drums, voice, harmonica, music theory, songwriting, composition, improvisation.
  • I could use your reserved lesson time to record a little instructional video on a topic of your choice. This can be really useful to practice with over the course of several weeks as you master the song or concept.
