Jesse is a wonderful voice teacher. I come from a vocal music background and was quite serious, at one point planning on studying vocal music in college. As such, I've worked with a number of voice teachers in my "old life", but took a break for around 8 years after I lost my love for the subject. I decided it was time to revisit my lost love and it was very nerve wracking - I had lost a lot of my range, and hadn't seriously sang in years. However, Jesse has made it easy to return to music, and practices the kind of balanced teaching I was always looking for but never found when I was seriously studying. His vocal exercises are great - they successfully combine breath support, stretching range, and increasing intricacy. He has a variety of music styles as well, and won't peg you to one - musicals, jazz, opera, whatever. He balances a stress-free experience alongside pushing you when you need it. Most of all, I'm getting back into fighting shape (vocally), while still having fun and laughing a lot, and if there's anything I've learned, you have to be having fun.

Kris is an excellent teacher and instructor. He caters each lesson to my abilities and interests. He explains music theory concepts clearly and follows up each lesson with an emailed summary of what was taught. He's willing to work with you at your pace. My skills as a pianist and song writer have improved significantly since I began working with Kris.

Chris and the UpFront Band performed for our wedding reception. They performed as a 5-piece jazz/swing combo. They were outstanding! We are swing dancers and we wanted the music to swing. They delivered exactly what we requested. They sounded great and were fun and professional. During the planning process, I corresponded with Chris by e-mail. Chris was easy to work with, responsive to our requests, and ready with ideas and suggestions. I highly recommend the UpFront Band for special events for dancers and jazz lovers.

I've used Jonathan Swanson's services as a recording engineer on more than 10 projects. Of the handful of Portland-area engineers I've worked with, he is by far the most effective at mixing audio. And he is fast! His gear is always up-to-date. A musician and composer, he's also written a score for one of my projects, and he's produced several videos for me as well. His attention to detail is excellent. His work for me has also included mastering the audio projects. In addition, he has volunteered his services for KMHD jazz radio (89.1FM), recording and mixing audio for the station's Grand Piano Series, in which the area's top jazz pianists play a session on Jonathan's Yamaha S-6.

I've worked with Miles on several projects and seen his experience first hand. He is an exceptional pianist, beat maker, mixer, and producer. Miles is easy to get along with, he has a solid knowledge of making music and can comfortably manage and arrange your music in a professional manner that fits your needs and stylistic inclinations. He has a great ear, is exceptionally creative, and is experienced producing many different musical genres. Whether you are looking to record one or more beat or song, I strongly encourage you to contact him to finish and direct your project, I highly recommend Miles. Zimanini

Shlomo has been my son's piano teacher for almost two years, and my family and I are very thankful for having him as the instructor to our kid. He is patient and easily understood, and his method of teaching young kids at an early age ~6-7 years old) is both interesting and fundamentally strong. He is not shy to bring his knees down just to talk to the kid, and he is a wonderful pianist and composer as well! He is easily one of the most talented teacher that we have seen, and we are glad to gave him the wholehearted recommendations. My son is entering level one now having completed both prep A and B levels, a and he is having a lot of fun in Shlomo's class (private one on one lesson).

Today was my first day working with Darin, and I must say I was more than impressed by his knowledge in music, skills in pedagogy, and his overall passion and enthusiasm for music and teaching! I could truly sense his excitement for me to learn and how much he cared to provide me with all the resources needed for me to succeed. He is not only an excellent pianist, but truly has incredible talent and knowledge in teaching. He truly spends his time generously in teaching and makes the learning experience so exciting. Darin spend extra time outside of the lesson planning out the lesson and then typing up all the things we covered in the lesson so I would have a summary and point of reference. I highly recommend him and am looking forward to working with him as my teacher!

We have listened to Chance Hayden in several venues, including our annual garden party. We’ve seen him play with a variety of players where his selfless musicianship brings out the best in all members of the band. He always delivers an innovative jazz-blues groove and pays homage to his heroes. Chance is a gift to the local Portland music scene. His inventive style and leadership has been praised internationally.

I've been taking jazz guitar lessons with Tim since 2013 and have always found him responsive to my musical interests and concerns. He comes to my home every other week and is ready to review and go over material from the previous lesson before approaching and building on prior knowledge and skills. Tim is fluent in all genres of guitar playing from folk to rock to jazz and is well equipped to teach and assist the beginner to the proficient and advanced player. I consider the money I've spent taking guitar lesson with Tim to be money well spent. I think the advances in both my guitar playing and overall knowledge of music and guitar theory is well demonstrated in both the complexity of my playing and the extent of tunes on which I can now draw.

    I've known David for many years. We crossed paths musically many times throughout school. He's a phenomenal pianist. I've hired him for events and always recommend him as an accompanist or teacher when I hear people looking for a role I'm unable to fill.
