Mitchell Fund 
Teacher, performer, and Composer
Hello there! My name is Mitchell Fund and I am a music teacher, composer, performer, and studio musician from Seattle, WA.

I have been teaching music since 2005 and been performing for years prior to that. Having studied music at Green River Community College and with several well known professors in the Puget Sound area, I am proficient in classical, popular, and soundtrack music genres. This allows me to teach students who want to focus on classical piano, play in their school's jazz band, join a rock band, or just want to play music that they love and enjoy.

As a teacher, I feel that first and foremost music should be fun. I like to incorporate enjoyable exercises, songs and teaching techniques while pushing towards mutually-determined goals. I currently teach drums, piano, and songwriting/music theory out of my studio in Ballard.

As a composer, I am heavily influenced by Renaissance music and "Holy Minimalism" composers such as Arvo Part and Henryk Gorecki. I am also influenced by 20th century English composers (Vaughan-Williams and Holst) and the Impressionistic movement. Using these influences, I tend to write in a folk or neo-Renaissance style using various modes, dances, melodies, and canonic imitation while using a modern harmonic and modulating style. My compositions in these styles have won me several State and Northwest composition contests

Outside of music I also buy and sell rocks and minerals, so if you visit my home studio you can check out my crystal collections!

Have an amazing day!
