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.
singing lessons have been fun, thorough, well-founded, effective! highly recommend.
When my 8 year old daughter told me the only thing she wanted for Christmas was guitar lessons, I began to shop around for options. We checked out a few local places and ended up having a really good intro meeting with Samantha from Portland Guitar Academy. Their experience, schedule, flexibility, and cost was just what I was looking for, and you could easily tell that Samantha would be fun to learn from. Lessons started from there and my daughter continues to be excited to go every week. Samantha has made it easy for her to learn, and has even adapted some of her favorite songs into chords that she can play along with. Samantha is so positive with my daughter that she continues to be motivated without me having to nag her to practice. I couldn't be happier with her progress, and am so glad we found Portland Guitar Academy!
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
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.
Great guitar teacher, not only gives great guitar lessons but also gives awesome insight on music and understanding it at a more complex level.
I took piano lessons from Geoff 2 years ago and unfortunately due to financial issues had to quit. For the months that I was able to be taught by him, I loved how patient he was with me as well as the materials he gave me. I would definitely return to him if I was able to do so in the future
Alfonso is a terrific teacher and has been very helpful in getting me started. I am a complete beginner and Alfonso has been wonderful in answering my questions and helping me pick out my first guitar. His lessons are fun and packed with things to practice on during the week. After each lesson he sends a detailed email reviewing what we covered and what to practice on. He is very responsive to questions via email and offers helpful advice and encouragement. I would highly recommend Alfonso!
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. :)
Well trained, experienced, friendly. Makes the guitar learning fun.
I have had three guitar lessons with Cameron and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and positive. As a beginner guitar student I would highly recommend him if you've toyed with the idea of learning but have been intimidated or put it off for any other reason. Cameron presents the information/exercises in just the right amounts for me thereby preventing frustration with the material and instead increasing my confidence and enjoyment.
She is very patient; my daughter loves having her as a piano teacher. It is very convenient to have her come to the house for a reasonable fee. She is prompt and flexible, and easy to get ahold of. I can't wait for my son to start lessons with her. We are also looking forward to the new studio in the works.
My son enjoyed having his piano lesson with geoff he said he is a great teach and cant wait to have another lesson
When I was 16 I took guitar beginner guitar lessons with Elisa and absolutely loved it! I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a music teacher. She was and is very supportive of my dream in music.
Austin is a fantastic guitar instructor. He is patient with students and produces results. My son went from a beginner to an intermediate within a few months. Hire him!
We had piano and guitar lessons a good part of last year and will continue this year for our home schooling students It's fantastic instruction - and we can participate in recitals thru skype as well! It's great for us, we live in WY and MT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I enjoy Davids approach. I am looking forward to working with him more.
Mitch is great at doing any overhauls or repairs on my instrument. I am always very happy with the result.

I have a fast rock and blues guitar influence by many genres of great artists/bands since the beginning of time.

I offer guitar and bass instruction as well as ensemble. My many years of playing in a band situation will help when teaching students how to play within a band frame work. In electric music, there is also a lot to learn about getting specific sounds. I have knowledge that comes from experience. I am now accepting students, including beginners.
