Pleasant Surprise

I currently have my daughter, age 8, enrolled in singing lessons with Ben. Previously, we had her starting lessons with the most popular teacher on this site, Lisa, with the highest number of reviews and were disappointed. She didn't seem to really invest in my daughters training. It seemed like a factory mill - student in, student out, next student in. I pulled her out after 5 lessons and went with Ben. It soon dawned on me that we had made a very good choice. Ben teaches the fundamentals first so that your child has a strong toolkit and foundation to succeed, which we weren't really getting from the previous instructor. He is very professional and takes what he does seriously and has made me feel that he cares about my daughter's progress. Additionally, he is affable and my daughter enjoys her lessons with him.

Professional, skilled instructor who has deep knowledge in music theory

I am a beginner in piano and have taken piano lesson from Ben for 2 months. Ben is a very professional instructor who has both the technical skills and a deep knowledge of musical theory. I learned not just the techniques for improving my piano performance skills, but also some intriguing music theory behind the pieces. The lessons are also well organized and it felt the hour goes by fairly swiftly.

Ben takes student's learning serious but still maintains a friendly and easy-going manner. The lessons usually provided at a musical instrument shop that is very convenient and cozy. Overall I am very satisfied with my experience.

Amazing technical knowledge...excellent instructor...very talented

From the first lesson, I could tell from Ben's singing and piano abilities that he was very talented with a lot of experience in music&music instruction. He is very clear with his instruction, extremely professional so it's so cool how down to earth he is. He even spent outside time helping me find a few things that would help advance my vocal abilities quicker. I really appreciate his time and hard work. Be advised: This man is SERIOUS about music (but that's a good thing)...

About Susan

Hi, my name is Sue L. I teach music and perform professionally with Mango Nights as their arranger and violinist. I also play cello and bass with other groups. I earned my music degree from Portland State University in 2006, graduating with honors.

My biggest thrill is to be able to transmit culture to the younger generation through ...

Very Encoluraging

Susan is so encouraging & gets excited because I'm excited to learn to play the piano. She's very patient with me...which is a huge plus! She also has a way of breaking the music language down so that I can relate to it. It's sort of like word association. That works!

Susan is a wonderful instructor. She was flexible with my crazy schedule. She gave me enough work to not get boerd between lessons but not to much work. I always look forward to my lessons.
Suzan G. Portland, OR

About Suzan

I started learning piano as a child, but it was in high school that I realized I really wanted to pursue playing keyboards, because it allowed me a way to express myself. I was hooked. Later on I attended Mt. Hood Community College, played keyboards and sang in choirs and vocal jazz. After graduating on the President's List with an Associates Degree in Special Studies Music, I directed the college Gospel Ensemble for two years before working full-time at a large local church, where I was a Music Director, Worship Leader, and keyboard player. In addition to vocal and keyboard work, I enjoyed directing large and small choirs and ensembles, band directing, orchestra conducting, and arranging many styles of music. It is exciting to experience what can happen when people work together ...

There are many websites that will tell you instructors don't like teaching adults, but Elisa was a wonderful and patient instructor for all ages. She is able to adjust her approach to accommodate all age groups and skill levels. It's important to let Elisa know what your goals are so she can mold the lessons to help accomplish your goals. Elisa also arranges group rehearsals and recitals to broaden the students abilities in group settings (optional).

About Karen

I have a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Parapsychology. I studied Architecture for 3 years, and Music Education for two years. I was a National Merit Semifinalist in High School for good SAT scores, and in the Honors Society in High School and College. I play piano, percussion, flute, cello, guitar, bass, cornet and glockenspiel, and teach music lessons. I enjoy playing duets with my students, sharing the fun of making music with them. I do macrame', draw and paint, and am certified as a Reiki Master. I always loved school, and enjoy helping other people to learn. My Dad is my role model, since he was a calm, patient tutor for me - I try to live up to his example in my own teaching work.
I like to work with my students in a learning partnership, letting them work at their own pace ...

Piano · In home
If you are looking for a piano teacher for your child, we highly recommend Karen for her musical skills and, moreover, her ability to engage people of all ages and tendencies. We have three children, two boys (15 and 12) and one 8 year old girl, with completely different personalities (and levels of motivation) that took lessons with Karen. She expertly handled their quirks and abilities and managed to find what would interest each. The confidence boost they were given by having the opportunity to perform their pieces was a huge bonus. From a paying and coordinating parent's perspective, you could not find a more reasonably priced and yet utterly accommodating private instructor. She's awesome!

Katelyn C. Gresham, OR

About Katelyn

Every student is different. I have experience with teaching toddlers to retirees and believe that the best way to reach a student and have them become proficient in their skill is to build a relationship with them, make them comfortable and find out how best they learn. I structure my instruction to meet you where you are at while challenging you and encouraging you. I believe a person can truly learn anything once it is explained in a way they understand and the process is made fun. I believe firmly in articulating to my students the method behind the subject, so they can understand its form and then begin to see it's pattern. I have experience with various subjects and enjoy them all. Let's find a way to reach your goals together!
