Guitar Lessons

Leon has proven himself time and time again as a man who doesn’t just teach, he truly has a passion for passing music onto others. Over the years I am continuously reminded of the positive impact he has on my son. Leon not only has his own ideas of where to go with instruction, he listens and is responsive to the direction my son wants to go... I cannot imagine a better, more genuine, or more skilled instructor than Leon Christian.

About My Teaching

With over 25 years of professional experience teaching, performing, and recording, I seek to add musical enrichment into the lives of every student whether they are a casual beginner or an experienced performer. It is my mission to give quality music lessons focused on personal excellence and I strive to help every student reach their individual musical goals!

I believe that every student is valuable and I teach much more than just music. All my students get numerous transferrable skills from studying with my unique holistic approach to music teaching. Kids can show marked improvement in school performance and have increased chances of college acceptance and scholarships. Adult students can improve their quality of life by reducing stress by having a creative outlet that balances their work and personal lives. All students can advance their creative problem-solving abilities, achieve higher levels of confidence, and improve their communication skills by studying music!

For students who intend to pursue music professionally, I have a successful track record of helping students achieve acceptance and scholarships to prestigious music schools and conservatories around the country, including: Eastman School of Music, Berklee College of Music, Oberlin Conservatory of Music, USC, UW, Cornish College of the Arts, University of Puget Sound and others. Many of my students have since become professional classical guitarists, signed national touring rock musicians, and engineers/producers at notable recording studios.

I am currently available in the greater Seattle-Tacoma area at a conveniently centralized location at my studio in Federal Way, WA where I service happy students from all over the Puget Sound including the cities of Federal Way, Auburn, Fife, Milton, Algona, Highline, Des Moines, Kent, Tacoma, Seattle, Gig Harbor, Bellevue, Mercer Island, University Place, Renton, Puyallup, and Issaquah.
