Meet our Music Teachers


Seattle Music Teachers

Our Music Teachers are Here to Inspire You

Off the Wall's music teachers are some of the most professional instructors in Seattle, and they work hard to keep you passionate about music!

In addition to their strong musical backgrounds -- they often have a degree in music and/or several years of teaching experience -- they bring positive energy to each of their lessons, making the experience both fun and inspirational.

Each lesson is customized to meet our students' particular interests, learning styles and skill levels.

We encourage our students to choose the songs that they'll play, which means our music teachers are continuously learning new material and creating new educational handouts that guide students in new skills.

Our teachers work collectively to brainstorm new teaching methods and manage a comprehensive library of unique song arrangements and exercises.
