Jason is a genius guitar player and musician. He is able to compose the music into bite size pieces that you are able to understand. Best guitar instructor that I have had and I highly recommend him.

About

I am proud to have won both of Thumbtack's Best of 2015 and Best of 2016 awards, thanks to outstanding reviews. Also, I offer training directly from New York City, having graduated from the Manhattan School of Music in 2009. I can teach (and sing) in any style, and offer a unique, direct, and patient approach to singing. I have performed on the stages of Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher, two Off-Broadway shows, and toured with hip-hop super group Deltron 3030, culminating in a Letterman Show appearance. I live my life to inspire and be inspired. I have the best job in the world. There is nothing more satisfying than watching each individual student grow. From a budding opera singer that flourished, winning spots in every school she auditioned for, to a timid backup singer in a local pop band that has charged to the position of front man, I am eager to be a part of YOUR story.

About

I listen to my students and tailor lessons to their needs and interests. I look for ways I can help them achieve their goals beyond execution of pieces in lessons. Sometimes this means connecting them with other opportunities or ensembles, helping them transition to being a professional musician, or helping them with auditions for universities (or even encouraging them to go for it). I enjoy guiding curious and passionate people to reach a higher artistic level and also achieve a greater understanding of life. I believe art and music are completely intertwined with the realities of life, and yet transcend them. Art has always pulled me from one day to the next, and it makes me very happy to help others realize or further their passion for it.

About

I am a patient instructor who wants you grow your skill level and confidence while having fun (at your own pace because every student is different). I want you to see real results with your playing because this will ultimately make playing more fun! I take pride in my continued work in improving myself as an instructor. I regularly meet with other instructors and discuss ways to get the best results for my students. I am a career instructor (not just a guitar player) teaching is a passion for me. It is a great feeling being able to watch as a student's dreams of playing guitar turn into a reality for them. I love being able to coach and help my students bypass many of the struggles I experienced when I was learning to play

About

I work very well with all kinds of personalities. While I am comfortable preparing a student for a professional piano career, I feel it is equally important to teach the hobbyist and dabbler. I have worked extensively with adults with developmental delays and with high functioning children. Music reaches us at our core, enabling us believe more strongly in humanity's beauty. I love sitting down one-on-one with a student and focusing on that individual's musical self. It is a privilege to watch the student's fingers learn to express what he/she feels and thinks. I love helping the student bring life to the printed notes on the page and recognize his/herself in the music.

About

Eighteen years ago Brian Eliason began teaching Music in the Portland area. As he starting teaching he noticed two big holes in the learning of local students. First he noticed students who could play by ear well but did not understand the reading the notes. Second he noticed students who could read notes but had not developed their ability to play by ear. From this experience he created the Complete Instruction Method, a balanced approach that teaches musicians how to learn music purely by hearing it as well as the skill of reading and understanding sheet music. This balanced, dual approach gives students more tools to achieve higher levels of play, it removes frustration and brings out the joy in experiencing music! The method has caught on and has grown from a studio of a dozen students to a school of 400 students of all ages who now participate in this new approach to learning. The method works for all instruments and currently is being taught at the school for piano, violin, cello, viola and guitar. We welcome you to visit our website or give us a call anytime to find out more about how fun and rewarding it can be to learn music. One of the most enjoyable aspects of teaching is listening to music that sounds poor at first and showing someone how to change it and beautify it. It is also very rewarding to watch students love to play their instruments for the pure joy of playing.

About

Enjoy the adventure! Music Studio: I teach in West Linn. If this is convenient for you, I'd love to hear from you! I teach voice and piano, and enjoy working with all ages and abilities: youth and adults, frog and canary voices. Voice: I believe anyone can sing, with gentle guidance and encouragement! I enjoying working with all ages: young, emerging musicians, adults trying something new, and seasoned performers wanting to move to the next level. Many students come with specific performing goals; others want to pursue music simply for the pleasure of it. Many of my adult students were told they "couldn't sing," or asked to "mouth the words" when in a school choir. It is a great pleasure to help these students claim and celebrate their musical abilities. Breathing techniques and a relaxed focus are based on a classical approach for optimum vocal health. These techniques are then applied to the styles of interest for the student - pop, musical theatre, folk, gospel, and classical. I work with each student to create an individualized program. Musicianship, including phrasing, expression, and performance skills, are naturally incorporated. Vocal students are welcome (though not required!) to integrate a modified study of keyboard and or sight reading to enhance musicianship and musical literacy. Piano: I welcome beginning and intermediate piano students, ages 5 to 95! Most important is to find music that will excite and inspire. With a background performing a variety of styles including classical, rock, pop, and jazz infused, I can help you find what you want to play. Artistry, comfortable technique, and accessible music theory are linked within the goals and interests of each student. Together, we will develop a customized plan that fits you! Guitar: I offer friendly, accessible beginning guitar lessons to get you started. We start right off with chords and songs, checking to make sure your hand positions are relaxed and flow easily. Once you master strumming and basic fingerpicking, you graduate to master guitar teacher Mark Hanson (see below)! About Greta: I've been a professional musician for over 30 years, as an educator, performer and songwriter. I've appeared internationally in concerts, arts festivals, night clubs, and schools, and on radio and television. My instruments include piano, guitar, and mountain dulcimer. Currently, I perform an eclectic mix of styles, including blues, jazz, folk and classic rock with Grammy winning guitarist Mark Hanson. I also offer solo piano and piano/vocal music for special occasions, plus engaging and interactive programs for schools, libraries, and family-oriented events. 2009 National Artist of the Year, Young Audiences Award of Excellence, Film Advisory Board: Friendship Stew (CD) Classic Recording Award for Music is Magic (CD) Music BA, Stanford University Music Teaching Credential, San Jose State University Music Study, Vienna Austria

About

Yoga: Jennifer Rinde completed her 200 hour RYT Yoga Alliance certification training and is completing an additional 300 hours in Yoga Therapy. She supports her students offering private lessons in a safe and accessible environment by providing a truly unique yoga experience. She is passionate about empowering you to achieve your desired level of results in this caring and supportive setting. To complement her yoga studies, Jennifer studied holistic nutrition and health coaching and was also a professional ballet dancer with Pacific Ballet Theatre (now Oregon Ballet Theatre) and American Festival Ballet. Because of her dance experience she has a unique understanding of the body, movement, and alignment to help reduce injury. Yoga has had profound benefits on her quality of life and has helped regain strength, flexibility, and balance as a result of significant nerve damage that occurred to one side of her body when she was a dancer. Her classes are designed to meet you where you are in your practice. Outside the studio Jennifer is an avid dog lover, interior designer, gardener and likes to travel. I look forward to having you in class! Health Coaching: I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world's top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. Lifestyle: I have a B.S. in Business/Marketing and also an A.A.S. in Interior Design. I've helped with full kitchen and bath redesign projects, space planning, furniture selection and paint color consultations. While I'm not doing full redesign projects anymore, I do believe that we are greatly affected by both the aesthetics and functionality of a room. It can have a profound impact on whether you feel peaceful or chaotic at home. If you need a consultation on the space you live in, give me a call.

I studied guitar with Gene for two years, until some transportation issues (living further away and deciding to go car-free) made it tough for me to make it to lessons. Gene was patient, dedicated, organized and kind- wonderful qualities in any teacher, and especially good if you're trying to develop those same qualities in your approach to guitar. I made much more progress in my time with Gene than during many years of unstructured playing on my own. It really helps (helps me, anyway) to have someone there to encourage you and keep you moving in the right direction. Thanks, Gene!
