It's hard to find the right piano teacher. But when I found Emily I knew I needed to look no further. I have been taking piano lessons on and off 20 years and within the first few lessons she taught me elements of theory and artistry that I had never seen from a teacher. She is patient, thoughtful and an expert in her craft. She listens and selects pieces that are inspirational to my taste and builds a curriculum to my skill level (intermediate) and pushes me just enough to help me feel confident while still learning new skills.

I take guitar lessons from Sam and she is phenomenal! When I first came to her, I didn't even know how to hold a guitar and was VERY nervous...nervous I wouldn't be good, nervous I wouldn't progress fast enough as was expected...just nervous! Sam put me completely at ease from the very beginning. She still continues to make it clear that the most important thing about my lessons is that I am having fun...that and learning, of course! Sam is a brilliant guitar player who has studied under some of the best, but she is very humble and makes me feel like we are "equals." I absolutely could not have taken lessons from anyone better! Check her out. You will NOT be disappointed.

Max is an excellent teacher. He is patient and supportive and is able to tailor my guitar lessons to my interests. I had almost no experience with guitar, but I think I have progressed a lot in a short time with his help. I also really appreciate that he is able to come out to St. Johns for my lessons. If you are an adult looking for guitar lessons, I definitely recommend Max.

I started taking his piano lessons only about a month ago, but it''s been such a great joy to work with him. He constantly assesses my weaknesses and strengths, and plans my lessons accordingly. He also listens carefully to what I like and what I want to do, too. I live a bit far from his studio, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend him!

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.

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.

Helen, was AMAZING, she taught my 6 yr daughter her first piano lesson. We were going to try out a few different teachers, but after meeting her, I have no interest going anywhere else. Thank you for being so friendly and so talented! <3 A few things that were important to me were, 1. She could connect with my 6 year old. 2. That she could teach syllabus. 3. That she has opportunities for her students to perform during the year. She met all three of those. :)

I was given a gift certificate by my girlfriend for guitar lessons with Manny, and after 5 lessons I was able to play (and sing) a particular song that I wanted to learn so that I could serenade my girlfriend, and then propose to her. Thanks to Manny's style of teaching and his awareness of my learning style, it was a wonderful experience! Also, Manny is truly an amazing guitarist, and has the depth of experience to advance beginning guitarists, as well as those of you who are much further along than that. I am continuing with my lessons, and I HIGHLY recommend Manny to anyone looking to learn the guitar!

I have been taking guitar lessons from Priscilla for about 1 1/2 years and could not be more pleased. She is a wonderful teacher and an extremely knowledgeable and talented musician. Her lesson plans are designed to be motivating and enjoyable for me while also moving me steadily forward in becoming a better musician. I love her enthusiasm! I believe she truly enjoys teaching.

Daniel is knowledgeable, patient, and personable. He catered each lesson to my individual progress and learning speed. His prices are very reasonable and he even provides a discount if you pay for a whole month of lessons at once. Unfortunately, I had to stop attending lessons due to a schedule change at work, but if I had not, I would still be going. I would absolutely recommend Daniel to anyone who is interested in learning more about music!

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

Dan does a fantastic job working with our daughter. He is kind and patient as she learns, yet knowledgeable and able to challenge her to improve her mandolin skills. His experience and talent is evident throughout the lessons and it inspires our daughter to want to practice on her own. He also gives her freedom to select music that she is interested in which helps her develop confidence. We so appreciate all the work he has put in, along with his positive attitude. Highly recommended!

About

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.
