My name is Tristan and I'm excited to meet you! I'm a guitar, songwriting, and voice teacher in Olympia, Washington! I approach music with you from a casual and friendly place! Visit me at my home studio or let me teach you from the privacy and comfort of your own home!
All ages and skill levels are welcome here; from beginning to advanced! I specialize in teaching contemporary styles! RnB, Pop, Musical Theater, Rock; any style you're interested in I can do! Let's make a YouTube video of you performing your favorite stuff!!
In addition to teaching guitar and voice, I also work with anyone suffering from stage fright! As an active performing theater musician, I have many tricks to help manage stressful situations! I would love to help you prepare for upcoming auditions and performances!
-Learn the basics of music and singing/guitar technique! We'll talk about what your interests are and what you want to sing!
-We'll discuss smart, practical ways to practice over coffee during our lessons!
-Once good practice habits are in place and you're feeling confident that you can accomplish anything you want, we'll start talking about how to effectively communicate as a musician.
-We'll explore the importance of expression and freedom in performance! More specific technical ideas such as posture and breathing will be touched on.
-Once a solid structure is established, expression and complete vulnerability will be encouraged during performance.
-We will explore deep aspects of the human condition and learn how to use them to touch the souls of our audience; this is what makes music so powerful.
-We will also explore the more complex, science-based aspects of guitar/singing & pedagogy! And, more importantly, learn how to practically apply them!
