Chuck recently moved to Portland, Oregon from Gainesville, Florida, where he was a staple of the music teaching and performing community for more than 25 years. Originally from Chicago, Chuck completed his BA in Music History and Masters of Music (MM) at the University of Florida. Chuck became obsessed with The Beatles when he began piano lessons at age 12. His first attempt at composing was actually improvising melodies over the ending chords to "Hey Jude". Along with playing Beatles tunes Chuck learned classic standards from a set of Reader's Digest Songbooks inherited from his grandmother.
Chuck has performed with classic rock, top 40, funk, R&B, and jazz groups, and has served as an opening act for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and legendary Texas bluesman Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. As a soloist he's played classical music, blues, jazz, and original compositions. Before devoting himself to music full time, he worked for 8 years as a radio announcer on WUFT-FM Gainesville hosting shows such as "Nothing but the Blues", "Montage" (acoustic jazz), and "Musica Antiqua" (Renaissance and Medieval).
Chuck has taught students of all ages and skill levels in piano, guitar, organ, flute, digital keyboards, recorder, and ukulele. He's also a multi-faceted composer whose instrumental pieces are infused with elements of classical, blues, and jazz styles.
Chuck's teaching philosophy: "In my 25 years of teaching I’ve found that everyone learns in different ways and at different rates of progress, so each of my students is treated as a unique individual. I try to get to know my students in the first few lessons so I can be more sensitive to their personalities. This helps me choose the best teaching approach for them. From the very first lesson I create a relaxed setting so students feel no apprehension, especially when trying something new. This allows them to feel free to take chances and experience playing music as something enjoyable, not a life or death situation! The biggest measure of my effectiveness as a teacher is when my students embrace new challenges and the opportunity to improve".

A Professional Musician, I am now happy to pass my skills and knowledge on to the next generations so that they may have ALL the fun and enjoyment of music in their lives, that I had in mine.
I have toured the East Coast Venues (NYC to Key West) for 30 years, and produced 10 CDs, and have 3 EMMY AWARDS for sound track music for the EXPEDITION FLORIDA SERIES, Nature Documentaries. They were funded by the University of Florida, Museum of Natural History, and the Tourist Development Council of Alachua County, Florida.
I play acoustic and electric six string guitars, electric bass guitar, piano and keyboards, drums, percussion and hand drums. I majored in Flute and Voice at UF and have spent my entire life immersed in the world of music.
I have played classical, rock, reggae, folk, jazz, swing, country, bluegrass, praise, gospel, afro-pop, ska and 80's music. I have toured as a solo act, a duo, a trio, and with a full 6 piece band, SKATTERBRAINZ, for 8 years.
I am a professional writer and photographer for the LEWIS RIVER REVIEW based out of Woodland, WA.
I teach lessons and classes full time, five days a week, (no lessons on Fridays/Sundays) and also perform LIVE and in person frequently in local venues for profit and charity.

I have been playing professionally since I was 22 years old with various string instruments. With a few different bands I have played guitar, electric bass, upright bass, bass banjo, and other instruments across the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
I love teaching one-on-one and helping students expand their musical horizons.
I'm comfortable with very many styles, and tailor my lessons to the students needs.
What kind of music or playing style are they passionate about?
That is what is important.
You should take lessons with me because there are very few people who do what I do (and not charge you an arm and a leg for lessons), and almost no one else who does what I do with my bass banjo. I really want to show people the style I have developed, and help them find their own.

I have a B.M. from Berklee College of Music with an emphasis in Folk, Bluegrass, and traditional music but can teach any style.
Would you like to have a better ear? Be able to hear chord changes quicker and translate that to your instrument? Or would you like to have a better grasp on theory and how to translate that knowledge onto your instrument?
While attending Berklee, I taught all music theory subjects (jazz and traditional harmony), ear training, counterpoint, and songwriting through the school and was involved in the tutoring department.
Are you looking to develop your songwriting? Would you like to write better lyrics? Or use a deeper theoretical knowledge to find new writing techniques and your unique voice?
While living in Boston, I received accolades and awards for songwriting from Berklee and the Boston music community and can pass along harmonic and lyrical techniques to allow you to become a better writer.
Whether you are new to music or a longtime musician looking for something new, I can provide material and methods to help you meet your goals and advance your musicianship.
I am fluent in Guitar and pedal steel guitar and have taught beginning to advanced students in all age groups.
If you want to expand your knowledge of music theory, improve your ear for hearing changes and complex chords, learn new songwriting techniques, and get to new places on your instrument get in touch!

I love to help anyone who has been told they're not able to play guitar, has quit out of frustration, or been told they're too old or too young to play.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
