Meet Nathan - Master Piano, Voice, & Guitar Teacher

If you can talk, then you can sing! Nathan is an encouraging, friendly and experienced voice, piano and guitar instructor teaching in the Greater Seattle region. Nathan constantly reminds his students that talent is not a prerequisite for being musical. Nathan has worked with young students all the way to retirees, including numerous high school and college-aged students. Some have been right at the beginning of their musical life, while others have been pursuing majors or minors in music. In addition to private teaching, he was the instructor of “Intro to Singing” at Washington State University, a college class of 20 students who learned how to explore their voices in a healthy manner. 

As a young tenor, Nathan Straub has sung at many summer festivals including Utah Lyric Opera, Opera Viva! in Verona, Italy, and the Cornish American Song Institute in Oxford, England. His recent roles include Count Danilo from The Merry Widow, Marco from The Gondoliers, Mal from The Addams Family, Eisenstein from Die Fledermaus, and Enoch Snow from Carousel. As a supporter of contemporary works, he has debuted Saoirse by Lindsay Greene, Psalm 7 by Travis Mallett, and Archipelago by James Campbell. Nathan has a Master of Arts in Music and Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance from Washington State University.

During his free time, Nathan enjoys rock climbing, listening to Weezer, watching The Office with his wife and dog, and experimenting with his own voice to find cool new ways of making sound!

Nathan is a great instructor for all levels of students! He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He was able to help build onto my repertoire as well as improve my technique and prepare me for my preformances and auditions. Very highly recommended!

I enjoy studying with Nathan because he makes it fun! I’ve been in a choir classes before, but he is so much more informative and interesting. I now feel comfortable singing in front of a group of people too! He was very helpful and was available throughout the week for assistance if you were having vocal struggles.
— Christina
The quality of Nathan’s lessons are really good and personalized to my level of experience. Nathan is flexible to different techniques and helped me find the pacing that worked best for me! Nathan is a very talented teacher and is able to work with students at a wide array of skill levels.
— Kaia
Nathan has an amazing voice! From our first lesson, I was already convinced that he will prepare me really well for my performance. My biggest concern when looking for a voice teacher was finding someone who would be encouraging to even a complete beginner and if he would make lessons fun. Nathan nailed them both! I’m quite sure there are lots of great other instructors out there, but Nathan is just awesome!
