I have been a member of Edmonds Music Teachers Association for 20 years, and am currently Co-President of EMTA. I teach in Bothell and the surrounding areas. My desire is to instill the love I have for music in others. Music touches everyone’s hearts, crosses cultural boundaries and speaks when words are not adequate. Music makes a difference in people’s lives, and I want to make a difference. I am worship leader, and adult and children’s choir director at my church.

***Will travel to your home***

Professional performer with a BFA degree in music and a BA in education. After trying to reach 30 or more students in a classroom, I find getting to really know students as individuals and working with them one-on-one is much more satisfying for both of us. I can guarantee success to anyone. I teach in the privacy of your home. My emphasis is on fundamental skills and techniques. It is an easy step-by-step course. You will learn to play by ear as well as by note. My course includes theory, composition, arranging, improvising and expression.

***Will travel to students home in Bothell and surrounding areas***

Tim Saye of Saye Piano Teaching travels exclusively to student homes and endeavors to impart the joy of learning the keyboard, whether playing popular music on a keyboard with auto rhythms and backing chords, or on the piano with the wonderful classical repertoire of the great masters. Tim endeavors to train a “whole” musician, one who can competently sight read, learn the notes of the staff and musical terms, have good aural perception, learn to compose original works, have good technique and rhythmic sense, improvise, and properly “shape phrases” placing balance of the hands and with artistic expression in performances. His goal is to make music a lifetime of enjoyment, and not just “another” activity which comes and goes in a student’s life.
The studio recognizes excellence in performance and learning with regular awards and certificates given at recitals, to opportunities for students to participate in the events of the local chapter, EMTA, where the five part artistry exams are taken and ribbons given for piano and instrumental/vocal performance.
Tim began teaching privately in 1993, and has earned his certification with the Music Teachers National Association. He keeps up with the latest trends in pedagogy by attending conferences, presentations in his local chapter, reading journals such as American Music Teacher and Clavier/Companion magazines, and attending the occasional piano or symphony concert.
With over six synthesizer sound modules and two synthesizers, Tim also enjoys creating large sounds which includes full orchestra string patches, pipe organs, many pianos and other synthesized sounds. He enjoys arranging and composing music using technology provided with MIDI and USB ports, and music scoring software, also for his students. He also uses a smart phone and Bluetooth speaker to show and play music in the homes of his students, for better playing performance and preparation for competitions and festivals.

Email: tamara@musical-you.com

My name is Tamara Wagle. I am a professional piano teacher with twenty years of experience of teaching music and I provide private lessons in piano and music theory for students of all ages. I enjoy teaching music and am excited to share my knowledge and technical skills with others. I give a special importance for achieving a beautiful quality of tone, and I focus on mechanical skills along with artistic skills in order to teach the student not only how to play, but how to play well. Also, I help my students to learn how to understand and interpret music, so they can continue playing piano on their own, after they stopped taking music lessons.
Originally I am from Ukraine; however I have spent half of my life living in Kathmandu, Nepal. I studied music and have played six different instruments, the prominent one being the piano. I have degree in Piano Teaching from the Ukrainian Music State College in L’viv, and bachelor’s degree in Music from Kathmandu University of Nepal. Many of my students got international certificates in Piano performance and in Music theory in various grades of Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music (London), and Trinity College London. I am an active member of the Music Teachers National Association and the National Guild of Piano Teachers.
