    I teach piano lessons for beginners to intermediates, from kids to adults. We'll cover music theory, piano technique, classical piano, modern music, jam and improvisation, and music itself. You'll not only learn how to play beautiful pieces of music but also how to apply those experiences towards your own self-expression on the instrument. Being able to express your emotions through impromptu jam will add a new dimension to your life!

  • Voice & Piano Lessons

    (6 reviews)

    My goal is to help you find your natural voice by working on vowel formation, breath management, tone production, maximizing the use of your resonating chambers, and learning to relax muscles that interfere with production of beautiful tone. I work with all types of voices, male or female; many musical genres and levels of ability. I teach private piano in student's homes and at Warner Pacific College. Theory and technique are emphasized, and all types of repertoire from classics, to pop, to jazz. If you've always wanted to learn, it's not too late to make that dream come true. I use humor to help make the sessions more enjoyable and to aid in the learning process. I have 20 years of experience.

  • Fun & Private Piano Lessons

    I offer fun, private piano lessons for children ages 5 and up in NE Portland with a free trial lesson! I am a very dedicated piano teacher with lots of energy and enthusiasm, and years of experience teaching music to children! I have a music degree from the University of Washington in Seattle, and I have been teaching piano and running my own studio now for 10 years. I absolutely love what I do, and I am currently accepting students of all ages and ability levels, but I specialize in working with kids, which is my passion! I keep my piano studio small so that I can do a high-quality job with each student. I care a lot about my students, and it's very important to me that I foster a positive, warm and encouraging teaching environment. I customize all of my piano lessons to meet each individual student's personal needs in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I teach music in all styles (classical, jazz and pop) and lessons can also include ear training, songwriting, and theory as well, if desired. Students get to utilize my home recording studio to make a CD of their music. Recording is beneficial because it allows students to hear their progress over months and years! I also have them record a CD around the holidays, as it makes a great family gift! I hold recitals twice a year at a local retirement home in Portland. This works great, the residence love it, and the kids get to perform and do community service at the same time! I only have a very limited number of slots as my focus is on high-quality lessons. I teach out of my home studio in Portland's Irvington neighborhood.

  • Guitar & Piano Music Teacher

    Whether a student is 5 years old or 80, I believe everyone can benefit greatly from learning the fundamentals of music, coupled with even the most elementary music theory concepts. If you are a new student, the first thing you may want to ask yourself is whether you have a specific goal. Do you want to learn rock, jazz, classical, or blues, or all of them? We can do that! Do you want to learn to read music? Or, is tablature notation enough for your needs? We can do either or both. Are you interested in writing your own music and learning how different styles of music are constructed using music theory? We can do that too. It all depends on where you want to go as a musician. For more advanced students, we may work on anything from altered chords and jazz solos to advanced rock techniques (sweep arpeggios, exotic scales, etc.) and odd time signatures or advanced theory. For beginning students, I like to concentrate on technique during the first few lessons in order to develop good habits. This includes posture (how to properly sit and hold guitar), left-hand technique (how to best place fingers for chording as well as single notes), and right-hand technique (how to hold the pick and perform picking patterns). The student's technique will be honed through various picking exercises as well as basic chord progressions, scales, and songs. Of course, during this time, we will work together to find the best path to meet your music goals!

  • Musical Services

    (1 reviews)

    At MusikHaus, we offer music lessons to beginners and advanced students of ukulele, guitar, Hawaiian steel guitar, piano, and voice. Reach your musical potential at MusikHaus! Chris Gabriel, MusikHaus' director and lead teacher, was born in Germany and while growing up in a military family that moved often, Chris discovered a strong foundation in the guitar. His love for the Hawaiian and country music are reflections of his summer visits to his grandparents in Hawaii and Bakersfield, California. Ever since Chris received a Bachelors degree in Music in Jazz from Portland State University, it has been his dream to open a space where he could use his unique experiences and abilities to help carry on these traditions. Stephanie Hays Gabriel, co-founder and administrative director or Musikhaus, has a background in business and arts planning. She has curated musical events such as an annual Jazz series featuring local Jazz artists as well as volunteered as a board member for a local nonprofit, PDX Pop Now!, for several years. It has long been Stephanie's dream to bring her talents to the local community, bringing more musical events and creating more spaces for people to gather and share experiences. Chris and Stephanie's shared experiences over 20 years have made Musikhaus the natural next step. They met in a performing arts class while at Hilo High School in Hawaii. After returning to Portland to complete school, they moved to Germany for two years and were very active in the musical Zeitgeist. After returning to Portland, they began writing, performing and recording in the band Super Zeitgeist, which released a children's CD in 2009. We look forward to welcoming you to Musikhaus and sharing music and community with your families! "Music is the magic wand that drives away care and worries." -anonymous "Hawaiian music lifts the latch of care, and makes the spirit free as passing air, and brings the light of light more near, more clear." -Peggy Reid "Music is the soul what exercise is to the body." -anonymous "Gently, as on the wings of a dove, Music, a gift of infinite Love, Wafts us to a happy land, Where love and peace command." -A.M. Anderson "The master key is music. It will open more doors than any other single accomplishment." -anonymous "The music of the Hawaiians, the most fascinating in the world, is still in my ears and haunts me sleeping and waking." -Mark Twain

  • Music Instruction

    I offer music theory, guitar, and piano lessons, songwriting, arrangement, and synth design. I don't just teach from a book, program, or curriculum. It's hands-on training to maximize the greatest amount of progress in the least amount of time possible. There are no shortcuts, just consistent fun and exciting practice (though I prefer the word "play"). I'll teach you not just the knowledge of music but how to facilitate what you learn into your own imagination to help you become the great musician you hope to be and take you far beyond even your own greatest expectations. Everyone has the ability to be a master of music; some just could use a little guidance someone to point in the right directions.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Vesper School of Music

(4 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love the challenge of teaching music that excites and motivates my students. It is so satisfying to help students of all ages develop a lifelong love of music.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I began my piano teaching career at Hoffman Academy of Music, a music education start-up company in Portland, Oregon. The director of the company created it following an excellent business model. Over the course of my 5 years there, I saw it grow from a small start-up with one employee (me) to a successful business employing over 20 music instructors. Hoffman Academy inspired me to take my own approach to teaching piano and starting my own business.

Describe your most memorable project.

One thing I love about my job is developing lasting relationships with my clients. Some of my students have been taking lessons with me for many years. One student started taking classical piano lessons with me as a 9-year-old. When he was 12, he asked to learn jazz piano in addition to classical because he found jazz really exciting. This year, I was thrilled to see him perform a sold-out concert with his jazz band at a music venue in Portland. The joy in the concert hall that evening was palpable!
