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.

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

Would highly recommend. Cameron makes it enjoyable for my 5 year old and teaches in a way that keeps him engaged and willing to learn. The program is fun for my son and I even hear him singing the songs from piano lesson while he's playing with his toys. As a working parent, I also appreciate that Cameron is flexible when our schedule needs to change.

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. :)

My 10 year old son has been very interested in getting guitar lessons for about a year now, so I finally decided to do some research to find the best music school in the area. I asked some of his classmates for recommendations, and a few mentioned taking their children for lessons a Northwest School of Music, an that they really liked the instructors there. I read some reviews and went to visit one afternoon before my son got out of school. I spoke with Manny Martinez, the instructor who does the guitar lessons, and I could tell that he loves what he does. He has lots of experience and fantastic credentials and just seemed like a great teacher to learn from. My son has been going to him since January now. My son has been having a great time and has a real enthusiasm for it. Manny has done a great job in helping him to advance and develop his skills, and my son has been keeping up his end of the bargain (practice!) due in part to his instructors focus on making it really enjoyable. It's great to see my son devoting time to practicing because he loves impressing his instructor with his progress. Overall, I'm very happy I chose to sign my son up for lessons at the Northwest School of Music. The staff are fantastic, and they really motivate and encourage students. My daughter is interested in learning guitar as well now that her brother is having so much fun with it, and I'll be signing her up in the fall. The lessons are priced well, and the quality of instruction my child receives is worth every penny.

The amount of time and effort Austin dedicates to his music is truly inspiring! Just watching him talk and teach others about the guitar is amazing. He’s patience and truly enjoys explaining the different techniques and notes. Regardless of the amount of experience you have with guitar, I can bet after working with him you’ll have a greater appreciation for music in general!

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.

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'm approachable, personable and patient. Whereas other teachers take textbook approaches, and categorize the people they're teaching as purely 'students', I like to learn about the people I teach, ask questions, find out what they're into. This 2 way approach to teaching makes the lessons more enjoyable, and opens the doors of communication, making it a safe place to be.

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.

About

At 14 years of age, I picked up my first guitar; having no idea what to try first, I took to the Internet to find the right path. I quickly learned that while the Internet can be a very useful tool to learn a large abundance of things, there is nothing like having someone sit in front of you and show you the ropes. At 24 years of age now, I commit most of my time to my job as a race timing technician, but on the side, I love getting the chance to open the instrumental eyes of a new musician. I've played in several bands, taken several music courses in college, and still take pride in all of my instruments. My lessons generally start off with an acoustic guitar; if you do not have one, I can provide one for rent. I go into types of guitars (12 strings, bass, electric, etc.), and I provide various scales and chord diagrams to work on, on your own.
