About

I took lessons with Kyle for about a year. My goal was develop a solid foundation so that I could learn on my own without picking up any bad habits. Matt definitely helped me reach that goal and then some. I feel pretty confident that I can learn new, challenging songs on my own now. If guitar lessons weren't so expensive, I would definitely have kept going. Kyle is an awesome teacher!

About

I offer guitar and bass lessons to all ages and all styles. Whether you're picking up your instrument for the first time, or you're a working professional, I'll help you advance as far as your ambition and talent will take you while keeping it fresh, fun, and interesting. My name is Alex Tomaino. I've been performing and teaching music for over 20 years, helping everyone from adults with years of performance experience to kids as young as 5 reach their full musical potentials. Every student is different, so every lesson is different: tailored to your interests, needs, pace, skill level, and desires. When you study with me, you focus on what you want to do, not a one-size-fits-all lesson plan. Many of my students are now playing in clubs in Portland, Madison, Florida, New York and beyond, often playing their own tunes. Thanks to lessons that included instruction in songwriting, music theory, and composition. I recently returned to Portland, my favorite city, after a couple of detours, to attend the University of Texas at Austin on a full scholarship in the master's degree program in jazz performance, and to play guitar with the critically acclaimed gypsy jazz band, Harmonious Wail in Madison, Wisconsin. While at UT Austin, I taught guitar (including songwriting and theory) at the Austin Live Music Academy (ALMA) founded by Jerry Jeff Walker, and played lead guitar for the popular rock band, Monarchs and other top Austin bands. I've played SXSW (South by Southwest) and other top venues in Austin, New York, Madison, Denver, Florida and Portland. I have taught virtually every style of music, including rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass, classical, experimental, and more. I also play bass with two local bands, and teach bass for beginning to intermediate students. Take lessons where and when you want them, at my Portland studio or your location. My rates are just $25 per lesson, and lessons are tailored to your needs, desires and skill levels. I teach guitar lessons, from beginner to pro. For bass lessons, from beginner to intermediate. There are no registration fees. There is no long-term commitment. A recording studio is available to track your progress. Call me today. Start playing right away.

About

I've been taking guitar lessons for about 7 years with various instructors- this was my second vocal coach. After being with Gene, I know the first one was awful. Gene is absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable, super patient and supportive. He's teaching me much more than just singing and I could not possibly recommend him more. Incredibly generous with his time. It's hard work, but gene makes it very rewarding. Good luck!

About

I took bass lessons from Don for a couple of years and it really expanded my abilities and confidence. I chose him as a teacher when I heard him play at a jam session and I said that's what I want to sound like! He is a professional, focused and organized teacher. I could not read a chart at all when I started with him and now I can, and I've got great notes and records from all the lessons I can review anytime. Don is the best.

About

I am very fortunate and blessed that Mark accepted me as an Adult-Starting-From-Scratch student. He has taught me coordination which enables me to get to all chords on time (a miracle). Mark's guitar knowledge is encyclopedic. He can teach you how to play songs in any style or genre you can think of, and he is extremely patient. Mark Hanson really is a rare teacher, who is able to communicate at the student's level of comprehension and illuminate as many facts as they can absorb.

Ron is an excellent Piano and Guitar teacher. He has been my older son's piano teacher for almost 8 years now and he has taught so much more than how to play piano. My younger son learns Guitar from him. His dedication, passion, and enthusiasm are inspiring. Ron is very knowledgeable with OMA syllabus material and prepares my son well for the OMA exams. He is versatile and wrote notes for some Bollywood songs that we requested. He plays and teaches Piano, guitar, sax and more... Both my kids absolutely enjoy going to his music lessons!!

About

the ultimate guitar teacher: i knew the 7 basic chords; essentially a rhythm player-----my goal is to be a jazz guitarist with a solid blues foundation ---with Kenny's mentoring the dream is becoming a reality! Kenny brings an extremely practical intelligence that sees you through any difficulty in mastering technique, chord progression, timing etc.---his teaching style is saturated with humor, expertise---(any time he was in a new city performing, he'd find out who the best guitarist was, then take a lesson from them), Kenny makes you feel confidently appraised of your potential, constantly reassuring one with the mantra:: "i never knock creativity" then recommends listening to artists that would inspire or further develop the hidden talent he instantly recognizes as part of his teaching agenda--currently he's bringing out the 'Charlie Christian/Joe Pass' in me (who knew?)-- both styles of guitar playing have been laying dormant too long in my heart of hearts. I've spent years blundering forth without any encouraging teachers....and now---I've found one: Kenny Lavitz ---my weekly guitar lesson is one of the peak events of my week; for i know ill leave the lesson blessed with a generous musicians' willingness to share every iota of knowledge he has accumulated from years of playing in this country and abroad. Kenny is the real deal...look no further. A lesson from Kenny leaves one confidently thinking: "Hey, I'm actually getting it!!" "How great is that??!!" check him out, you'll quickly learn he's the best in Portland.
