Patient, intelligent, talented… Those are just three of the qualities that Maxime displays as a guitar teacher. I started taking guitar lessons from him last year and to be honest, at first I was somewhat concerned about taking music lessons over the Internet. But it’s worked out quite well. And although I am a beginning guitar player, I’m not an inexperienced music student. After undergraduate studies in music. I went to Juilliard on scholarship before going on to perform all over the world. Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, recording contract with Sony. Recorded at Abbey Rd. Studios with the London Philharmonic, PBS radio and TV performances with leading orchestras and opera companies and along the way more voice lessons than I can remember…. 😬 so if there’s one thing I’ve done a lot of it’s take private music lessons. From a lot of people. Some good, some bad, and some great. And I have no qualms about recommending Max to either a beginning or advanced guitar student. He does a great job and is very organized in his teaching. So if you’re thinking of taking lessons give him a try. I think you’ll be very happy. Did I mention that is also a really nice guy…? 😎 Les young
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!
My 10 year old son started taking piano lessons with Deanna Maio at Confident Voice Studios a couple of months ago, and she has done a terrific job connecting with him and helping him advance his piano practice. We highly recommend Deanna!
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.
Jonathan Sherrill is an incredibly talented and professional guitar player and singer. Amazing vibe and positive attitude to accompany his shredding level skills. Jonathan is a 10/10!
Great teacher! I began taking guitar lessons from Jason about six years ago and I have grown a tremendous amount as a guitarist from his teaching. He caters his teaching strategy to what works best for you personally, allowing you to learn in the best way possible. I'd highly recommend taking lessons from him!
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. :)
I highly recommend Tim Smith as a teacher in many areas of music. I am so elated to be taking cello lessons with this fine teacher! Tim is multi-talented and able to challenge me through every level of musical growth. I appreciate his individual teaching style which allows each student to progress at their own personal rate. He is flexible and accommodating with lesson times and his rates are right in line with the local teaching market.
I have had three guitar lessons with Cameron and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and positive. As a beginner guitar student I would highly recommend him if you've toyed with the idea of learning but have been intimidated or put it off for any other reason. Cameron presents the information/exercises in just the right amounts for me thereby preventing frustration with the material and instead increasing my confidence and enjoyment.
Austin is a fantastic guitar instructor. He is patient with students and produces results. My son went from a beginner to an intermediate within a few months. Hire him!
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!
Jeremy is a fantastic instructor. I took piano lessons from him with an emphasis on music theory. He expertly calibrated the lessons to my level of experience with both and as well as my learning speed. He has an easygoing and encouraging presence, and explains concepts in several different ways, making them easier to understand and remember. I had a lot of fun. Thanks, Jeremy!
Our son has been taking bass lessons with Don for a few months now (he is 14). He's making terrific progress and is very enthused with how it's going. We credit Don for being a terrific and patient teacher.
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.
Daniel is knowledgeable, patient, and personable. He catered each lesson to my individual progress and learning speed. His prices are very reasonable and he even provides a discount if you pay for a whole month of lessons at once. Unfortunately, I had to stop attending lessons due to a schedule change at work, but if I had not, I would still be going. I would absolutely recommend Daniel to anyone who is interested in learning more about music!
Carlos is an amazing guitar teacher! Our son learned so much over the years with Carlos & currently plays in two high level Jazz Bands! Thank you Carlos! xoxo The Ball Family
I'm Doc Fleetwood, and I teach guitar, music theory, jazz, and music concepts and philosophy. I focus on my specialty: fingerstyle jazz, covering blues, and folk with some instruction in country, bluegrass, classical, pop, and rock guitar. I also teach skills and concepts of leading church and small group worship with guitar, and of playing as a member of a worship team. My Teaching Background: It's been my privilege to teach countless students for over 38 years. I am the senior guitar teacher at Uptown Music in Keizer, Oregon, having enjoyed a teaching relationship with the store for more than 20 years. A number of the current and past guitar teachers at Uptown Music were originally my students who have gone on to become excellent teachers themselves. With the obligatory introductory lessons, exposure, and apprenticeship to colleagues in various ensembles, 40 years playing, and 35 years of teaching experience, a tremendous amount of self-instruction and research, I offer a vast perspective of playing and performing experiences to share with my students. Performance Background: I have played in various ensembles and solo endeavors for over 40 years. I currently play in the unique violin, guitar, and trumpet jazz trio "Kilde, Fleetwood, and La Freniere" in the vocal and guitar duo BJAZZ, and various solo and sideman engagements. My Teaching Philosophy: I practice what I call "prescriptive teaching". The purpose is to determine your interests, background and learning style and build lessons that provide you with the tools and guidance to become the musician you want to be. I constantly remind my students that I can't magically turn someone into a guitarist in half to 1 hour a week, but I do provide the tools and guidance for them to turn themselves into the musician they are destined to be. I love introducing youngsters to the joy of making music and helping adults realize that lifelong dream of making music. Testimony: "Being a music teacher myself, I have really appreciated what Doc Fleetwood has to offer. He's a teacher of teachers and highly skilled on the guitar. I have learned so much from him the last 3 years. He never ceases to amaze me with his knowledge and expertise and goes out of his way to help his students. You can tell that he loves to teach and it has been fun playing some of his arrangements and original compositions. I have also enjoyed watching and listening to him as he plays in a professional Jazz Trio. (They have produced several excellent CD recordings). I am happy and honored to recommend Doc Fleetwood." - Darrell Robertson, Piano and Guitar Teacher, Guitar Instructor at Chemeketa Community College "I have been meeting with Doc Fleetwood for about six years now. I have enjoyed every moment of his instruction on the guitar. Doc uses a unique approach to teaching, in which he makes complex ideas easy to grasp. As result of this type of teaching, music theory has become simple and easy for me to apply to my music. I believe that music theory is of no use if it becomes a distant entity to playing music. Music theory should serve as a tool to take an individuals creativity to another level. I have truly seen this take place over the years under the instruction of Doc Fleetwood. I have greatly enjoyed my time with Doc and would recommend his teaching approach to anyone who wishes to take their guitar playing further. As a result of his instruction and encouragement, I myself am now teaching and seeing others expand in their musical potential." - Ben Schott, Music Pastor, Champion Life Center, Keizer, OR ; Guitar Teacher, Uptown Music, Keizer, OR "Ive been playing guitar for a long time, but recently, I had begun to feel that I hadnt challenged myself to grow at it in years. Doc Fleetwoods strengths as a teacher mesh beautifully with what I am looking for and need as a student. Hes a great listener and took the time to find out what I can already do well, using that as a resource upon which we can build. Deeply knowledgeable about music and music theory, hes also very patient with me as I step out into uncharted territory. A great teacher makes a world of difference when learning a new skill. Doc has the chops as both a master teacher and musician to help students of all levels rise to the challenges theyve set for themselves. I would recommend him without hesitation." - Loren Depping, guitar student, member of Oregon Valley Boys western swing band Rates and Availability: I teach from my primary studio in Keizer, OR, serving students from Portland to Corvallis, and I provide occasional consultations in the Portland area. I also now offer live online sessions using the Skype webcam technology for students who may live too far distant to travel for weekly lessons. I teach from beginning to advanced, and I also offer consultations for advanced students and professional musicians desiring to hone their skills and supplement their knowledge, particularly in the areas of fingerstyle technique and music/jazz theory. Please contact me regarding rates as they do vary depending on locations and technology used.

For the past 20 years, I have been developing my craft as a musician. I have been formally trained in voice, piano, drums, and guitar. During college, many people approached me and asked if I would teach their daughter or son guitar. I naturally became a guitar teacher. Many of my guitar students have gone on to create their own original songs. With my experience of writing over 100 songs for many different genres, I am able to draw out the songwriting abilities of my students. Outside of teaching, I have been the music director of a church, written music for film producers, and performed all around North America. I look forward to helping you or your child learn guitar.
