Jesse is a great instructor with a prestigious background and education in singing and music in general. He knows what he's talking about. He's easy to get along and communicate with, and knows when to push you and how hard to push reach your goals. I had no music background at all and after A few lessons and his teachings, I already know I can go far in the music world. This guy is the real deal

My 7-year-old daughter took weekly singing lessons with Emily for a little over 3 months. Emily was sweet and very encouraging. My daughter really liked her and was always looking forward to her singing lessons. The lessons had to stop because Emily was relocating to another city. Before she left, Emily went out of her way, took time from her busy moving schedule and gave my daughter a free farewell lesson. We wish her all the best in her new chapter in life.

Phil did an excellent job at our gymnastics banquet. The music was appropriate for younger children and the girls loved the lights and fog.

Our daughter wanted singng lessons for a birthday present and we had been referred to Judy. We did not know what to expect at the first recital and were blown away by the talent and range of her students. She brings out the confidence to be themselves when performing. Judy is also so professional and on time. Very importatant to a mom of three!

Patient, intelligent, talented… Those are just three of the qualities that Maxime displays as a guitar teacher. I started taking guitar lessons from him last year and to be honest, at first I was somewhat concerned about taking music lessons over the Internet. But it’s worked out quite well. And although I am a beginning guitar player, I’m not an inexperienced music student. After undergraduate studies in music. I went to Juilliard on scholarship before going on to perform all over the world. Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, recording contract with Sony. Recorded at Abbey Rd. Studios with the London Philharmonic, PBS radio and TV performances with leading orchestras and opera companies and along the way more voice lessons than I can remember…. 😬 so if there’s one thing I’ve done a lot of it’s take private music lessons. From a lot of people. Some good, some bad, and some great. And I have no qualms about recommending Max to either a beginning or advanced guitar student. He does a great job and is very organized in his teaching. So if you’re thinking of taking lessons give him a try. I think you’ll be very happy. Did I mention that is also a really nice guy…? 😎 Les young

As a vocalist in a worship band I wanted to improve my voice so I joined Sofia's lessons a year ago. My voice became definitely more stable after a couple of months and she helped me to discover my real register. Besides practicing scales she recommended me songs from different styles which I'd not thought before that I could ever sing. She gave me useful instructions how to perform. Because of her sensitivity she found the best personal examples for me. It was really a pleasure to take part in her lessons. We had lots of fun.

Before working with Deanna, my teaching skills were lacking in the area of vocal lessons for children. After working with her, I feel confident about my abilities. The thing about Deanna is that she is a very experienced educator. She's organized, clear, and to the point. She is easy to follow and understand when explaining a topic, and breaks everything down to a level that’s very comprehensible. During our work together I gained so many valuable tools that I could implement immediately when working with young vocalists. This was valuable because I wasted no time in adding material to my lessons. I am able to provide more variety, and have more confidence that what I have to offer will keep them engaged and moving in a good direction. I gained ideas and materials, answers to the questions that I’ve had, validation of some of my own good ideas, and confidence. I'd recommend Deanna to other teachers that have thought of seeking coaching or mentoring in order to become the teacher they aspire to be. I'm a big fan and am inspired by Deanna’s many creative talents, her beautiful energy, work ethic, generosity, determination, and business savvy.

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.

My 4 year old son and I get lessons from Nyssa. I do voice. I have learned a lot from Nyssa. She is very knowledgeable, patient and so encouraging! My son is doing Wunderkeys(preschool piano)with Nyssa. He has limited motor skills and this has really helped him make great progress. I see growth in that he is doing things with his hands that he had trouble with in the past. She works really well with him as well. My husband calls it my son's "occupational therapy." I would recommend her 100%

Grace is an outstanding music teacher. My daughter was so excited to try Violin, and Grace was the perfect teacher for her. Grace was extra patient with my daughter, who is blind in one eye, and went out of her way to make my daughter feel comfortable and empowered her to believe she could play violin. She adjusted her lessons accordingly and found perfect ways to communicate complex music and violin lessons to a 7 year old. I highly recommend Grace to anyone looking to expand their musical talents. She is a very talented musician, super smart and an wonderful teacher.

I took cello lessons with Elisa for a few years and played in a group of student, stringed musicians led by her for a few more. She is very good at what she does. She is also very kind. Her lessons are affordable (especially important for a broke college student like me), and her schedule flexible for the most part.

I have been taking piano lessons from Anna Fisher for about a year now and have progressed faster than I ever thought possible. I'm an adult returning student and truly value her teaching style. She's patient and kind, and she can answer any question I come up with. Anna is very knowledgeable and offers her students a well-rounded musical experience. Not only does she help me with my piano playing, she also is training me in music theory. I look forward to my lessons every week and leave inspired and encouraged to keep practicing and learning. Anna is truly an artist, and I would highly recommend her to others.

Liz is the kind of teacher I yearned for when I was taking music lessons as a child. She makes it possible to succeed by her encouragement, high expectations and the fact that she breaks each task down into manageable pieces. My 9 year-old daughter has been taking lessons from Liz for almost 5 years. During that time, she has grown so much in her love of music, her poise in performing and in her work ethic. My almost 7 year-old son has been taking lessons for 2 years. He is a bouncy, energetic boy and it took him a while to learn to pay attention to detail. Now he is so proud of himself that he can memorize music carefully and not have to correct mistakes later. My husband and I chose the Suzuki method because it trains the musical ear and focuses on developing good technique. We chose Liz because we knew several of her students and has seen their fabulous growth. We also really like the Group lessons (which many other teachers do not offer). They provide a chance to become comfortable with performing and the games make learning theory fun. Group also helps the families at Studio 88 be a chose-knit group. The students become friends and encourage each other. If you choose Liz as your piano teacher, she will expect you to practice with your child on a daily basis. She will give you a list of tasks to complete during the week. She will expect you to take notes during lessons. Her lessons continue year-round (with breaks for the major holidays). If you want to drop your child off at lessons and let your child practice by him/her self, then you should look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you are looking for the highest quality piano teacher who is willing to work extremely hard to turn your child into a topnotch musician, Liz is the teacher for you.

Picking the right teacher is a critical step in your development as a guitar player no matter what level you’re at. I’ve had several teachers over the years, some more helpful than others. Here are some reasons why Erick Hailstone is the right guitar teacher for me. • The biggest value-add for me is Erick’s ability to arrange a song, any song, from standard boring arrangement out of a book to a unbelievably cool song with a Jazz or Blues twist with alt-chords throughout. No other teach I’ve encountered in the Portland Metro area does this. And he’s fast at it. He uses great tools in the process, so we can share files and collaborate. The alt-chords are seriously a differentiator how a song sounds and come with a bit of a wow factor. • Erick has the ability to take any complex problem and break it down into smaller issues to work on. He completely gets it when it comes to figuring out “okay, I’m at this level of playing but I’d like to get over here.” He’s got the roadmap to take me there. • As a player, Erick has every single characteristic that I’ve dreamt of having since I was a kid. Great tone/sound. Flawless playing. Shreds when the song calls for it. Steely Dan to Wes Montgomery and everything in between. He makes it look so easy. From the first time I saw him play 20 years ago until today I walk away shaking my head thinking how I’d love to play like that. It’s absolutely incredible. • Some of my most valuable takeaways have been nuggets of advice that have nothing to do with guitar technique. I can’t stress how meaningful this has been at times. Things like “Rule #1 for a guitar player: Never get in the way of the singer.” • Studying with Erick has helped me build up a rich library of exercises to practice with. Arpeggios, Scales, and licks. Right hand technique (which is much more important and much more difficult than I ever imagined), tasty chords and of course, songs. • Erick truly understands the theory behind every bar in a song and can articulate what is going on there. His understanding of music theory is vast. • One of the things I’m into is recording and often times my lessons are around problem solving with the recording process. My recordings have improved dramatically since I started collaborating with Erick on them. By my own choice, I’ve spent entire lessons just learning the ins and outs of some of the tools like Pro Logic. I can’t tell you how much time this has save me from fishing around on you-tube. • Lastly, we’ve been collaborating remotely via a program called zoom so I never even leave the house. This has a huge convenience factor and saves a bunch of commute time. It works pretty well to use zoom plus I have the added benefit of being able to record the sessions and review them later on. As I said earlier, picking the right teacher is a fork in the road critical decision to your development. I’ve had no regrets and am seriously loving the results. Bill Toner Tualatin, OR
