I took lessons with Kyle for about a year. My goal was develop a solid foundation so that I could learn on my own without picking up any bad habits. Matt definitely helped me reach that goal and then some. I feel pretty confident that I can learn new, challenging songs on my own now. If guitar lessons weren't so expensive, I would definitely have kept going. Kyle is an awesome teacher!
I am a 75 y/o individual with very limited musical skills and arthritis in my left hand. Who would take on such a challenging project.....Tim Bischof. Very patient, very knowledgeable, very skilled guitarist. I was having difficulty with the classical guitar when Tim put me in touch with Hawaiian slack key tuning which has re-energized my approach to learning the guitar. I can recommend Tim enthusiastically.
I had guitar lessons with Aaron for several years, and I highly recommend him as a teacher. Hes incredibly knowledgeable and very encouraging; he motivates you to do your best and takes a more creative, interesting approach to teach music (for example, I learned a lot about musical improvisation and composition, in addition to classical and spanish guitar techniques). He is one of the best teachers I have ever hadif you take lessons with him and are reasonably motivated, he will absolutely help you succeed in your musical goals.
First few guitar lessons went great and my son loves him.
Great teacher! I began taking guitar lessons from Jason about six years ago and I have grown a tremendous amount as a guitarist from his teaching. He caters his teaching strategy to what works best for you personally, allowing you to learn in the best way possible. I'd highly recommend taking lessons from him!
I take bass lessons from Rory and he has great method of teaching with kids young and old. He dose not only teach me bass, but also a wide range of music theory and history. He is VERY knowledgeable in history, theory, and the science of music. He is a fun teacher and I always look forward to each lesson, knowing that one lesson wont be the same as another.
I offer guitar and bass lessons to all ages and all styles. Whether you're picking up your instrument for the first time, or you're a working professional, I'll help you advance as far as your ambition and talent will take you while keeping it fresh, fun, and interesting. My name is Alex Tomaino. I've been performing and teaching music for over 20 years, helping everyone from adults with years of performance experience to kids as young as 5 reach their full musical potentials. Every student is different, so every lesson is different: tailored to your interests, needs, pace, skill level, and desires. When you study with me, you focus on what you want to do, not a one-size-fits-all lesson plan. Many of my students are now playing in clubs in Portland, Madison, Florida, New York and beyond, often playing their own tunes. Thanks to lessons that included instruction in songwriting, music theory, and composition. I recently returned to Portland, my favorite city, after a couple of detours, to attend the University of Texas at Austin on a full scholarship in the master's degree program in jazz performance, and to play guitar with the critically acclaimed gypsy jazz band, Harmonious Wail in Madison, Wisconsin. While at UT Austin, I taught guitar (including songwriting and theory) at the Austin Live Music Academy (ALMA) founded by Jerry Jeff Walker, and played lead guitar for the popular rock band, Monarchs and other top Austin bands. I've played SXSW (South by Southwest) and other top venues in Austin, New York, Madison, Denver, Florida and Portland. I have taught virtually every style of music, including rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass, classical, experimental, and more. I also play bass with two local bands, and teach bass for beginning to intermediate students. Take lessons where and when you want them, at my Portland studio or your location. My rates are just $25 per lesson, and lessons are tailored to your needs, desires and skill levels. I teach guitar lessons, from beginner to pro. For bass lessons, from beginner to intermediate. There are no registration fees. There is no long-term commitment. A recording studio is available to track your progress. Call me today. Start playing right away.
I've been taking guitar lessons for about 7 years with various instructors- this was my second vocal coach. After being with Gene, I know the first one was awful. Gene is absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable, super patient and supportive. He's teaching me much more than just singing and I could not possibly recommend him more. Incredibly generous with his time. It's hard work, but gene makes it very rewarding. Good luck!
Bass lessons from a man who does it from a fundemental starting point. Straight forward and knowledgeable. Love it!
Found Neil and the Montavilla Guitar Studio through a neighborhood Facebook page. He has been giving our 8 year old daughter private guitar lessons for 3 months now, with great patience and so many fun, innovative teaching techniques! His studio/teaching space is cozy and welcoming, he clearly enjoys teaching lessons, and has a natural knack for working with children (which is no small feat). We have been incredibly pleased with the caliber of teacher we've found in Neil. (If you are just beginning lessons - he also offers a complimentary "find a guitar" session where he meets you at a local guitar shop to pick an instrument that'll work well. Great way get a newbie musician excited about what's to come!)

I am a Portland based guitar instructor. My teaching career began in NY, where I am originally from. I have had students from ages 6-60. I specialize in classical guitar, but I have plenty of experience in teaching and performing various styles, including rock, jazz, and folk. I believe that a good technique is essential, and an understanding of music theory is essential. However, these things are only one side of the coin. In addition to teaching you what to practice, I will teach you how to practice and how it ties in to what you love.
