Jacqui Sandor
Piano - Voice - Violin - Viola, - Cello - Bass

Jacqui has been teaching private lessons for over 15 years and has been a musician for going on 20 years now.  She absolutely thrives on teaching and sharing her love of music with the next generation of musicians.  She feels that it is very important to treat each student as a potential colleague.

She has led private lessons and directed groups in sizes ranging from 1 student to full orchestras, even taking conducting classes on a post-graduate level, and has taught general music, orchestra, and choir in school classrooms. Her time as a student and full-time musician in New Orleans have taught her many aspects of the musical world. She started off playing classical music, has studied jazz (couldn't avoid it in New Orleans!), has played in the pit orchestra for musicals, and has toured the country playing folk music and singing her own songs. She also has a Masters in Arts Administration, and experience with the business and production side of being a musician and artist.

Jacqui teaches piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, bass on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays.

Daisy Sky
Cello - Violin Viola - Voic - Beginning Piano

Daisy Sky grew up immersed in music. Her father, George Shangrow, was a prominent figure in Seattle’s classical music scene and there were always rehearsals, auditions, and post-concert parties happening in her home. Her mother, Julie Reed, is an active cellist and singer, so Daisy Sky was enveloped in the vibrations of cello and voice before she was even born. Daisy Sky started on violin and piano before she even started kindergarten, but realized within a couple of years that she was truly born to play the cello. She studied privately with Mara Finkelstein for nearly ten years, and she played in the Seattle Youth Symphony, Young Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Seattle, and in several school orchestras and chamber ensembles growing up. Daisy Sky also is an avid singer, previously leading sections in Northwest Girlchoir and the Amherst College Choir, as well as singing with the Seattle Chamber Singers and for years in church and school choirs. She studied music theory, ear training, music history, performance, and creative expression at the Seattle Conservatory of Music, and spent a summer at the distinguished Meadowmount School of Music in New York. Now, Daisy Sky has expanded her musical ventures and is singing and playing cello with Wolfchild, a Seattle-based indie band. She hopes to support young artists in developing the foundation to fully express their creativity in any style of music they want to play.
