Nick has been giving my son (age 10) drum lessons for a year and a half. Nick has a great repartee with kids and his methods (reading sheets / playing along side) seem to really propel the learning experience. His personality in general is wonderful (friendly, cheerful, easy to work with). His studio is cozy but comfortable (separate waiting area for parents/sibs if desired) and the convenient location is a plus for our busy schedule.

When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.

Duncan is an excellent drum teacher, especially for grade-school and middle-school aged kids. My 11-year-old son thinks Duncan's great, and as learned a variety of rhythms/beats to prepare him for middle-school band as well as playing along with popular songs. Duncan has an easy, friendly style with kids, and jokes with them to get a smile and put them at ease. That said, he is a serious music teacher, and has my son repeat exercises until he can do them correctly. My son has learned an awful lot in the last year and a half, and really looks forward to his weekly drum lessons with Duncan.

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!

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!

Jeff has given our son drum lessons for 7 years. Jeff is encouraging, understanding and very fun. He is excited and enthusiastic about our son's progress and passionate about music. He strives to teach what is necessary to learn and the type of music the student is interested in. Our "likes to sleep in" son has no problem getting up on a Saturday morning to go to his lesson!

Benjamin is exactly the type of instructor i was looking for. Done two lessons with him already and he has been very very helpful for me. For all the knowledge he shares he is very reasonable, affordable and so very pleasant to be with. I hope to have a long association with him.

He's easily the best drummer I've ever seen in person. He's incredibly astute, he listens, and he used both music and education as a way to grow the personal as a whole. Jason is a gift to drumming, and is a great resource for musicians of all ages.

I've been taking lessons with Nick for about a year, and all I can say is, wow. I didn't expect to get this good at guitar when we started. Nick is not only a great guitarist, but a great teacher and knows how to distill all of the theory stuff down into bit sized chunks I can handle. Now, I'm starting to improvise and write some songs of my own too. Nick is relatable and knows how to make the lessons fun! Without a doubt, I'd recommend him to any level of guitar student.

I’ve been taking lessons from Tom for at least a few years now. I had been self-teaching and clearly not advancing in a very productive manner along with garnering some bad habits. I’m very happy I found Tom and I’m making great advances though there’s always a long way to go. He is an amazing drummer (go see Euge Organ Trio at Solae’s) and a great teacher. He seems to thoroughly enjoy playing & teaching. He’s very well versed in just about all music/rhythms on the planet. (That may be an exaggeration, but seems that way to me) He’s particularly adept/experienced in the jazz/funk/street music of New Orleans as well as with the rhythms historically feeding into the New Orleans mix, including Latin, African & native rhythms. And, this has evolved into one of my main interests now as well. Check his web site, he’s had incredible experience & education. I find it completely worthwhile to learn from a clear professional (especially compared to some prior lessons I’d tried). I’d be happy to expound/discuss further if you'd like, contact me at jkulik@hotmail.com.

Just started learning Drums this year - a bit late to the game as I'm in my 50s. Toby has been excellent, knowledgeable and always introducing new concepts and challenges every lesson. I very much enjoy each lesson. Thanks Toby :-)

I found out about PK by watching him perform with the church and heard he taught music lessons. My son was really interested in learning how to play the drums so he begged me to get him a drum set. I agreed as long as he could prove he would stick with it, and we actually started lessons without a drum set. After a few lessons of learning basic patterns by hitting sticks on a practice pad, PK helped us look at our options for a starter kit (my son was 11 at the time) and we decided on a convertible kit that could be "muted" as needed. Thank God we did! My son was a bit reluctant to play the drums muted, though he really enjoyed learning to play songs with the kit loudly when appropriate, ultimately playing songs along with a cd/mp3 player in his room. I watched his confidence grow as he learned more patterns and beats to play, later with his friends at church. Very glad we took lessons from PK - I'd highly recommend it!

John was great with my very shy 11yr old daughter who has been drumming for 3yrs now.John was that someone/something she was missing. John sat side by side with my daughter while he observed her drumming. He then explained and showed her in a fun way how to get more control from her hand movements and sticks. She left the session feeling more aware and how to be more fluid with her hands and sticks. When we arrived home she went straight to her drums and started practicing a sheet of patterns John had sent home with her. We look forward to many more years in his care.:)

About

I care about my clients success in drumming and realize Oregon City may be a bit far from downtown Portland. If you need a ride from the bus stop downtown OC, I may be able to arrange that. I have been through symphonic band, Jazz band, Pep Band, Marching Band and in the last 12 years, full band performance playing on stage with local church worship teams playing all sort of styles of music.

About

Hey everyone! My name is Benjamin Copsey. I am 21 years old, very friendly and open to anyone with a passion for music. I have been a guitar instructor for 5 years now and would like to expand my clientele. In my classes, it's up to the student what they want to learn! For example, if you or your child wanted to learn guitar so you could play your favorite song and determined to learn it in a week, I would be the man to go to.
