Megan Hennings – Piano
Megan teaches piano lessons to beginning and intermediate students of all ages. She graduated from Central Washington University (Magna Cum Laude, President’s List) with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance with a Business Administration minor. She also holds an Associate of Arts & Sciences (President’s List) from Olympic College, Bremerton. Music is a life-long obsession of Megan’s, and she wishes to continue that tradition by inspiring individual creativity while covering all the essentials of musicianship such as ear-training, rhythm, sight-reading, theory, etc. Megan is very interested in technique that employs economy of motion, relaxation, suppleness and power. She wishes all her students to have a happy, healthy, successful playing experience and so her students can expect a curriculum tailored to their particular interests and talents. In addition to private tutelage, Megan participates in chamber music and accompanies a wide variety of solo instruments and voices. She also enjoys singing classically, ChoirChimes, and community-theater.

Bob Crow – Guitar
Bob Crow is a Seattle based guitarist, bassist, singer/songwriter, and private instructor. He has been teaching out of his lesson studio in the Ballard neighborhood since 2004. Bob also performs around the greater Seattle area as one half of the acoustic guitar/vocal duo, Bob and Sheldon.
Although Bob took up piano at age 5 and alto saxophone at age 12, it was when he started playing guitar at age 14 that he knew he’d found his primary instrument. While earning a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory from Central Washington University, Bob studied classical guitar with James Durkee, as well as singing and playing in local rock, blues, and country bands, and the CWU jazz band. More recent years have seen Bob develop his skills in arranging songs for solo fingerstyle guitar.
