My name is Dillon Nadler, and I’m a musician and educator who has been working out of the Portland Area for the last ten years. I received my Bachelors Degree in Arts and Letters from Portland State University, and I’ve studied with Darrell Grant, Or Bareket, George Colligan, David Friesen, and Alan Jones, amongst many others. I have worked with hundreds of guitar students from all musical backgrounds, age groups and learning styles. My considerable experience has allowed me to create dynamic practices that help students identify creative goals, target the weakest areas of their musicianship, and develop their natural strengths.

    Dillon was very patient with me.. Even though I came into my lessons with Dillon with a few years guitar experience , I certainly needed more theory . I highly recommend Dillon to anyone .. from the very new to the more experienced guitarist.

    Frequently asked questions

    I like to learn about the student's goals, musical background, favorite musicians and general learning style. From there we can schedule an initial meeting and lay out the groundwork for a personalized practice plan and first study assignment.
    I have over 10 years of professional teaching experience with guitar students of all ages ranges and musical abilities. I also have an Associate's and Bachelor's Degree in Music, and countless hours of post Graduate private study with many of the master musicians in Portland, OR and beyond. I also have over 10 years of experience being a professional musician!
    My lessons are $40 for a half hour, $50 for 45 minutes, and $60 for an hour. All lessons are billed on a monthly basis.

    younger guitar players wanted to take lessons with me, and I said yes!

    I have worked with everyone from 5 year old beginners, to retired professional singers wanting to accompany themselves, to prodigious young guitarists getting ready to go to college for music.
