  • Music Lessons


I am a gentle, caring teacher who offers piano and guitar instruction in your home. After more than thirty years of teaching I am prepared to help you learn virtually any style or technique that is used in piano and/or guitar music. I am both classically trained and well versed in a variety of other styles, as well: jazz, rock, blues, folk, and world music. I work to bring out the student's musical personality and help them understand what that means in terms of musical style, theory, and technique.

I also understand that students (and their parents!) sometimes prefer a very structured approach to teaching and learning and I am very well prepared to take that track, as well. In the end an advanced musician needs to understand how they connect with music no matter what kind of training they have had.

Throughout my years of teaching I have composed numerous pieces and exercises for a wide range of levels that have been very popular with my students. These are often my students' favorite pieces and help to foster an interest in composition and improvisation.

I accept students both from Seattle and the Eastside. Rates vary according to the number of students per household and the length of the lesson(s) but $48 for a 45-minute lesson is representative. Call Shawn Miranda for more information about me and my teaching.
