Here is an introductary video for potential students https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moyKKhsYMqg I am passionate and highly knowledgable musician and performer. I can offer a pure joy in learning music and finding a voice in your own expression. My teaching style is lax. I feel out what the student needs in the moment and give them assignments to work on every week. I am very creative to find resources that will help the student and guide where the lessons and goals head towards. I am a singer-songwriter who specializes in many instruments such as piano, guitar, mandolin, banjo, and singing. I am an active performer and songwriter and have p ... View Profile

I have a great love for music and would like to pass that along to my students. I teach ages six and above on Piano and junior high level to adult for voice. I will teach voice to younger students if they agree to learn the piano as well.  I began my musical training at age five in Montreal, Quebec where I grew up and studied piano. I attended the University of Colorado and obtained a double major in vocal and bassoon performance. Upon graduating I was hired by the Portland Opera as a company singer and worked there for three years before returning to the University of Oregon to pursue my Masters in Voice Performance. I later was hired b ... View Profile

I've had five years of combined experience teaching students of all ages in both large and small groups as well as privately.  Everyone learns differently and at a different pace so all of my lesson plans are designed individually for each of my students depending on what they would like to achieve.    I've had a love for music since I began playing saxophone 17 years ago. I earned my bachelor's degree in saxophone peformance at the university of West Florida and I am currently working on my Master's in Jazz performance at Portland State University.  Music is my joy and my passion and there's nothing that I enjoy more than ...

I believe that playing music is possibly the most fun activity a person can engage in, and learning how to improve at an instrument is a valuable experience that crosses over to many aspects of one’s life, as well as being really exciting and rewarding.  I have been playing guitar for over 10 years, and teaching almost as long. In California, I taught at the Santa Barbara Academy of Rock, Jensen’s Mainstage Summer Camp, The LOUD Program, Goleta Valley Jr. High, as well as many private lessons. Since moving to Portland in 2014, I have had many private students. I enjoy playing guitar in a wide variety of scenarios, from&n ... View Profile

Over twenty years of playing all my taught instruments has shown me there is not one specific way to teach music to every person, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in! I started teaching music lessons in after school programs when I was eleven and fell totally in love. I continued to do this for many years driving to neighboring towns, volunteering at church youth groups and local Boys and Girls Club all around my hometown.  In Portland I've been gigging, playing on records, recording music for films, and volunteering every week at Nonprofit Mu ...

I'm passionate about seeing my students get results. The joy of making progress towards ones musical goals is exciting for the student and for the teacher, and the positive energy created spills into many other areas of life.  My lessons focus on building a solid foundation in technique, harmony & theory and vocabulary. Once we determine what the students goals are I create a plan customized for each student that is fun, challenging and effective. I've been teaching for over 15 years in music stores and private studios in California and Washington state. Several of my students have gone on to play in bands and tour. Some have even be ...

Have been teaching piano for decades and love giving lessons to students 20 years old or older (I don't take children) up to seniors, who've either had lessons as a child but stopped, and now want to resume, to have music in their lives, or start from scratch. I teach both Classical and Jazz Improv. My students like the variety. I use my own workbooks and gear lessons to each student's particular needs and desires. Always include basic music theory, so students understand what makes music work. Lessons last an hour and sometimes go longer, depending upon what needs to be reviewed, assigned, clarified, demonstrated, etc. There never is any ad ... View Profile

I provide a unique and innovative approach to learning piano, theory and composition that is tailored to each individual and to any age and level of development.  Over decades of teaching, I have worked on and honed my techniques to the point where I can provide the essence of each area of study, be it learning skills, fingering & technique, ear-training, expression, theory or composition. It's much like giving you the box top before you start to piece together a jigsaw puzzle. My lessons are often high energy and always focus on the positive.

Along with standard approaches, my lessons have a special focus on the psychology and science of music. Music making is about how the human mind processes things like rhythm and harmony, the way we form patterns and expectations, and the way emotions and social associations affect our experiences. I also emphasize creative exploration. I have a classical guitar degree and experience with lots of other styles. I spent a couple years in a full-time pop/rock/jam band. I've reviewed over 800 books on guitar and music education and known many other teachers, so I know what's out there otherwise. My broad perspective lets me adapt lessons for each ... View Profile

What is unique about me is my experience at a young age. I have been in several bands of different genres and I play 6 instruments as well as sing. Having a multi Instrumentalist teacher is an advantage because not only can I teach your instrument of choice but I can teach how your instrument relates and fits in with other instruments. I also have a home studio where I do my lessons. In my studio I have all the instruments of a band. I consider myself a one stop shop. I can help anyone from beginners learning their first chord to the garage band looking for advice on how to take the next step and get out of the garage. I pride myself in my ab ... View Profile

You can sum up what I do like this: Music is just one more outlet for passion, creativity and discipline.  I help people find it. At Guitar Lessons Made Simple you'll get the patience you need to pursue the guitar whatever your pace.  I try to reiterate new concepts a few different ways to help you understand.  Here you get a combination of playing your own favorite songs in additional to foundational techniques which I bring. Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: I go through the basic chords, and ask if they've had any other musical background with note-reading or anything like that which can help.
