Well trained, experienced, friendly. Makes the guitar learning fun.
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. :)
Mr K is experienced and extremely knowledgeable in piano instruction. He brings an emphasis to technique for early learners, including scales and chords that builds a thorough knowledge base for students. As a former piano teacher, I have greatly valued having Mr K instruct my daughters. They have become proficient very quickly and love the piano!
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.
When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.
I started taking his piano lessons only about a month ago, but it''s been such a great joy to work with him. He constantly assesses my weaknesses and strengths, and plans my lessons accordingly. He also listens carefully to what I like and what I want to do, too. I live a bit far from his studio, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend him!
When my 8 year old daughter told me the only thing she wanted for Christmas was guitar lessons, I began to shop around for options. We checked out a few local places and ended up having a really good intro meeting with Samantha from Portland Guitar Academy. Their experience, schedule, flexibility, and cost was just what I was looking for, and you could easily tell that Samantha would be fun to learn from. Lessons started from there and my daughter continues to be excited to go every week. Samantha has made it easy for her to learn, and has even adapted some of her favorite songs into chords that she can play along with. Samantha is so positive with my daughter that she continues to be motivated without me having to nag her to practice. I couldn't be happier with her progress, and am so glad we found Portland Guitar Academy!
I was given a gift certificate by my girlfriend for guitar lessons with Manny, and after 5 lessons I was able to play (and sing) a particular song that I wanted to learn so that I could serenade my girlfriend, and then propose to her. Thanks to Manny's style of teaching and his awareness of my learning style, it was a wonderful experience! Also, Manny is truly an amazing guitarist, and has the depth of experience to advance beginning guitarists, as well as those of you who are much further along than that. I am continuing with my lessons, and I HIGHLY recommend Manny to anyone looking to learn the guitar!
I took piano lessons from Geoff 2 years ago and unfortunately due to financial issues had to quit. For the months that I was able to be taught by him, I loved how patient he was with me as well as the materials he gave me. I would definitely return to him if I was able to do so in the future
My guitar lessons are the highlight of my week. Geoff is an amazing teacher who makes learning the guitar enjoyable and accessible .
When I was 16 I took guitar beginner guitar lessons with Elisa and absolutely loved it! I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a music teacher. She was and is very supportive of my dream in music.
I’ve been seeing Haley for about 2 months now for vocal lessons. She is super professional and helps me so much with finding my voice. I have so much more confidence and skill after working with her. She is extremely talented and I feel so lucky to have her as a coach. She works really hard on helping me find my sound and making me feel comfortable and confident with my voice.
I highly recommend Tim as a cello teacher! I've taken cello lessons from Tim for almost 3 years. I started at age 44 with more than a little apprehension having had less than ideal experiences as a kid with a few piano teachers. I wanted to learn to play a lot of tv/movie soundtrack music as well as the more standard classical tunes. Tim's sense of humor and easy-going demeanor combined with his vast knowledge of musical theory plus his skill as a cellist are the perfect combination to inspire and draw me forward in my learning. He knows how to apply enough challenge plus enough encouragement to help even the older student excel to the best of their ability.
Great guitar teacher, not only gives great guitar lessons but also gives awesome insight on music and understanding it at a more complex level.

I offer guitar and bass instruction as well as ensemble. My many years of playing in a band situation will help when teaching students how to play within a band frame work. In electric music, there is also a lot to learn about getting specific sounds. I have knowledge that comes from experience. I am now accepting students, including beginners.
