Do you do amended taxes?

There are a few openings for lessons in my piano studio! No matter your age or your ability, we can help you meet your needs and your goals as a pianist.

Experience has taught us that every student is different. Each one deserves piano lessons created around his or her skill level, learning style, future goals, and musical interests.

At my studio, students begin with the basics and receive a well-rounded musical education – from how to sit and position their hands, to sight-reading, to a little music theory to put it all together. Within two to six months, students master enough of the fundamentals to help choose their musical repertoire for future lessons.

Through it all, we mix in some fun — relevant games and learning incentives, even occasional music outings — to keep our students engaged.

Visit for more information, and reach out to schedule your free trial lesson!

Join us for a free presentation and talk to an attorney about your student loan debt. We will cover types of loans and how to find out what type you have, payment plans, loan forgiveness options, private student loan issues, collection activity, scams to watch out for, bankruptcy, & resources.

Seattle Glee Clubs, a local, nonprofit adult amateur singing organization is in the process of looking for new rehearsal space. We were wondering if you might be able to help spread the news to see if there is a local business or church that might have a space for us.

The Seattle Glee Clubs has been in existence for 25 years. We have rehearsed in West Seattle for over 11 years. We have had various singing and musical theater subgroups and currently have two: the Seattle Metropolitan Singers (The Met)and the Offbeats. The Met is a group of women of all ages singing as a chorus. The Offbeats are a vocal jazz ensemble with mixed voices. We rehearse from September through May, and perform concerts from October through June. We also sing at retirement communities, community centers, and The Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition to benefit Pike Place Senior Center. In addition to bringing music into the lives of our community, we support other local nonprofits benefitting women and children such as Mary’s Place and LifeWire by collecting donations at our concerts.

We are looking for space for up to 35 people to rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30 – 9:30 pm. There may be occasions when additional evenings might be needed. We are also looking for secure storage for file cabinets of music, amplifiers, microphones and other accessory equipment.

We have been taking the next few months to find just the right fit for our organization. We are looking to forge a long-term relationship with a corporate sponsor, church, school, performance space or warehouse that would be willing to offer us a very low rate of rent for a tax write-off. Promotion of the corporate sponsor through our members, website, and concert programs would be one of the benefits.

More information about the Seattle Glee Clubs can be found on our website

I look forward to your reply and the possibility of creating a relationship with a local entity for a mutually benefitting proposal.

My kids will be with me some of the time and I would be the primary resident. Thank you for any leads you have.

I have witnessed numerous lessons by Daisy. She has a wide ranging pedagogic approach. She adjusts her lessons to the interests and abilities of each student. All the while ensuring strong fundamentals and musicality. It is not an exaggeration to say that students were weeping when she took a sabatical some ten years ago. (disclaimer: this author is related to Daisy) She teaches in Mt Baker

in discussion all other discussion / anything goes » SAVE Cheasty Greenspace!

As long as the trails usage is light, I doubt there will be much conflict or damage to the park. But as the population increases, mountain biker usage increases, and 200,000 more Seattle residents start looking for places that are green. Then the impacts will be felt. User group conflicts will escalate as they have in other parts of the country and BC, and more sports uses will be introduced (if mountain biking, why not Frisbee golf, laser tag, paint ball, a ropes course, obstacle courses?)
As more sports activity and mt bike trails are added, the environment will start to show wear and tear, losing wildlife diversity, causing more slides, ruts, compaction, etc.

Mostly it will change the essential nature of the natural park space. The birds, the seniors, those seeking solace and the peace of the woods will be aced out by all the activity. That's fine if that is what Seattle really wants to do with it's native areas. It would be a shame though. My feeling is that when user/population pressures are high, the land must, by default, be restricted to the lightest use possible. The most use is not the best use. In fact, Nature is such that if you overuse it, you will lose it! How many ways and times do we have to learn that lesson?

I'm comfortable tutoring students in the following subject areas:

  1. college level
      • biology
  2. high school level
      • biology
      • physics
      • chemistry
      • math

I am a biology professor at a local liberal arts college with over 10 years experience teaching undergraduate and high school students.

My general strategy for learning/teaching is to focus on the fundamentals underlying complex topics and to replace memorization with deeper understanding of the basics.

I charge $40/hr and I'm based in Columbia City; I'm available MWF 8am-5pm and willing to travel to you or meet at a convenient public location.

Ideally, I'd like to set up meetings on a continuing basis for the length of a course, but I'm also available for single session help.

Thank you.
