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 have been taking electric guitar lessons for a 18 months and Samantha is an excellent teacher for players from any level. She has a depth of technical knowledge, different styles of playing and most importantly, she makes it fun and interesting. It is rare to find a skilled guitar player who is also a skilled teacher, and Samantha is both.

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!

My 10 year old son started taking piano lessons with Deanna Maio at Confident Voice Studios a couple of months ago, and she has done a terrific job connecting with him and helping him advance his piano practice. We highly recommend Deanna!

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'm a senior learner that has used several instructors in my years of learning guitar. Rory is the latest and the best so far. He has an easy style that has taught me more in a year than I've learned from all the others. From basic fingering exercises to understanding scales to learning to jam, I've learned both the how and the why to do things. He has tied more pieces together for me but helping me understand the big picture. I would highly recommend Rory as a guitar instructor for learners of all ages.

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 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

About

I provide professional music performance, instruction, recording, production, including jazz, soul, rock, electronic, hip-hop, etc.

About

I am a classically trained guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. I offer music lessons to the general public at competitive rates. I combine the best aspects of a classical training, including music theory, sight-reading and aural skills with the sensibility of a self-taught musician, stressing the importance to learn to play by ear and improvise in jams. With my extensive background in musical styles ranging from classical to jazz, rock and folk, I have the knowledge to help you take your playing to the next level. I am easygoing and fun to work with, and lessons will be catered to each individual.

About

Guitars and bass are my specialty. I have been playing for 6 years and have held lessons for 2 years. My friends will tell you I am the best person to go to when it comes to making up a bass riff on the spot or creating a kick butt solo. I'm not shy, nor should you be. Playing guitar is what I'm willing to teach you, and it's pretty easy to learn. Forget guitar tabs! I can teach you how to read sheet music like it was a children's novel. My name is Emily. I'm 17 and I am a senior in high school. I know what it's like to be the new kid just learning. Hey, if you mess up, that only makes you smarter. I've messed up more times than I can remember, but I'm now the bass guitarist for my pep band, marching band, and Kill The Messenger (my band). I guess you can say I've mastered the bass and guitar extremely fast, and I can help you get started and maybe make you the next Jimi Hendricks. I can play at his level and beyond. I'm free on the weekends and anywhere in between, I would just need a heads up. I don't think it's right to have an hourly rate. If you feel like I deserve more than $20 a session, feel free to do whatever you feel is right.

Several quick facts about me are as follows: * I am almost 30 with 15 years of experience playing the guitar. * I love teaching kids and inspiring passion in them to master an instrument. * I can read music, chords, tabs, and teach rhythm and picking.
