What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Some of the Eastside's finest instrumental instructors have made their home at the new Metropolitan Music store in Kirkland. The environment is warm, family friendly, and conducive to learning.
Studios are spacious, and we have a quality instrument rental program to affordably meet students' needs.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students should start with whatever band or orchestra or other music they have been working on.
Instructors may then recommend additional material.
It will vary by instrument, level, and what the student wishes to learn.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Paul and Jean McVicar opened the Seattle location in 2004 after having been involved with their own children's school music programs for years and seeing firsthand the need for quality affordable instruments for families.
Their mission has been to remove barriers to a quality music education.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing the joy in a child's eyes when they hold their first instrument in their hands and begin to make a sound.
I love being a part of their formative years as they go from being a kid to being a confident adult, and I love seeing the role of music in their lives--whatever that may be!
Joe Lavin, a licensed massage therapist, and Wendy Lavin, a licensed physical therapist, combined their anatomical knowledge to develop the Power of Touch Workshop. The aim of the couples-focused workshop is to foster a lifelong affinity for massage, letting participants both practice massage techniques and experience massage benefits at the hands of their partner. With a low student-to-teacher ratio, sessions promise adequate individual attention and an intimate environment in which to knead away knots and loosen spines. After the workshop, students not only come away with a deeper appreciation for massage and joints looser than a broken door handle, but they also receive lifetime access to Power of Touch’s alumni area, a network of massage resources that includes videos, articles, and additional workshops.

From Divine Movement's twin studios in Kirkland and Seattle, co-owners Angi Cardwell and Jennifer Patenaude oversee a sultry suite of pole-dance and boudoir-dance classes set to the sounds of heart-pumping rock, indie, and hip-hop. Though not specifically a workout regimen, the floor-based and pole-vaulted routines are high-energy maneuvers that help to boost confidence and create a positive self-image. Six-week series cater to beginners and intermediate seductresses, and more advanced drop-in sessions cover holds, inverted handstands, and midair tea service. The dress code calls for comfortable yoga-style wear and bare feet or legwarmers.
