    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    Singer, songwriter, teacher, audio-oddjobber...

    My Teaching Background
    -15+ years performing musician and songwriter (www.wesweddell.com), including solo, ensemble, side work, backing school programs, and all sorts of stuff in between.

    -9+ years teaching private lessons (guitar, mandolin, bass, songwriting, more...), classes, and workshops: kids and adults!

    My Teaching Philosophy
    Interaction and relationship are at the center of my approach to teaching (and life!): rather than working with a set curriculum, I follow my students' interests re: style and select examples that will keep the student engaged while we find teachable moments within. It is not my goal that every student become a performance-caliber player, but rather that each leaves knowing that, for the rest of his/her life, he/she will be someone who knows a thing or two on the instrument...and can resume the learning/growing process at any time.

    Rates And Availability
    I do most of my teaching at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church in NE Seattle (10005 32nd Ave. NE), and also offer regular classes at Dusty Strings Acoustic Music Shop in Fremont. Rates: $30/half-hour; longer slots negotiable.
