Learning from rick has been great. As a beginner adult with a full time job life can get busy. Rick helps me to stay on track and motivates me to keep learning. He attentive and detailed. I look forward to my weekly lessons. It's worth the drive across town. Thanks rick!Jun 15, 2015VerifiedLearn Guitar PDX's reply

I got hooked up with a great guitar teacher - very professional but also warm and encouraging.Aug 5, 2015VerifiedLearn Guitar PDX's reply
Chris, thanks so much for the review! It's great to have you as a student! See you soon :)
I'm a beginning guitarist and have thoroughly enjoyed Rick as a teacher. He has a straightforward and relaxed teaching style. Rick willingly incorporates any song, artist, or style I mention in the lessons. One particular element of his teaching that benefits my progression a lot is music theory. Even though I don't immediately understand all he teaches, the gradual addition of these theory lessons is paying off.Jan 29, 2014Learn Guitar PDX's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Hour lessons are $40 ea, 30-minute lessons are $25. Students who pay for each month's lessons at the first lesson of the month only pay for 4 lessons, even if the month contains five lesson days.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?One of my favorite composers, Sergei Rachmaninov said. "Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music," and I firmly believe that to be true. There's always something new to discover, whether it be a new riff or technique, or a new band I've never heard of. That's one of the things I love about music; I'm always learning something new.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started giving guitar lessons right out of high school, after taking music lessons for years. I've always really enjoyed it.
