Chuck M. Portland, OR

Subjects Taught

Classical Guitar, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Organ, Piano, Songwriting, Speaking Voice, Ukulele

About Me

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".

*** Lesson Details ***
My primary goal as a teacher is to present musical material in a way that keeps students excited about what they are learning. Even with absolute beginners, I will have a student playing actual songs that they are interested in as quickly as possible. Along with way I include fundamentals such as scales, strength-building exercises, rudiments of theory, and ear training. Some of the method books I use include the Alfred and Faber and Faber series, and Hanon's The Virtuoso Pianist, among many others. These materials are always supplemented with arrangements and transcriptions of popular songs and classical pieces, along with original exercises designed to teach specific styles and techniques. I also use interactive music websites to introduce students to concepts of music theory. The styles that I cover include classical, rock, jazz, and blues. As students progress in their creativity, I also introduce them to composition and improvisation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kawai K50 upright piano, music playback devices, Hammond C3 organ, multiple keyboards/synthesizers, acoustic and electric guitars, amplifiers, computer recording equipment; parents are encouraged to sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I don't provide any specific equipment. Piano students should have either a well-tuned piano or full-sized weighted-key digital keyboard (Casio Privia, for example). Guitar students should have a well set up electric or acoustic guitar and an amplifier (for an electric guitar).

*** Specialties ***
I teach students of all ages and skill levels. The styles that I cover include classical, rock, jazz, and blues. I also teacher recording techniques using computer software including Ableton Live, Reason, and Pro Tools.

About Me

I'm a multi-instrumentalist from the Northwest with lots of love for teaching people to groove. I got my bachelors in music from Whitman College with an emphasis in Jazz Performance. I can teach anyone to rock, swing or get unreasonably funky. Lessons can be casual or serious and I'm down to tell you how to get to Carnegie Hall or onto the stage at the local jam.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to teach my students what they want to learn! I'm always game for setting up a fun path to being able to play your favorite songs as fast as possible. I don't scold or shame and having a blast is the name of my game. I can teach you to improvise, read music, become a strummer or virtuoso, it's all up to you.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***

Bonnie M. Portland, OR

Subjects Taught

Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

Students take music lessons for a variety of reasons - professional aspirations, fun and larks, a desire to sing or read music better, a need to improve speaking voice or confidence, a hope to play that piano that's been sitting in the house for years - and these each come with a different level of commitment. I want all my students to enjoy their lessons and their practice time while gaining an understanding of the fundamentals of music and the basics of their chosen instrument: voice, piano, or flute. If you hear a song on the radio you want to learn, note it and bring it in to your next lesson. We'll talk about it and make a plan for learning about the song, and then learning to play the song.

Bachelor's of Music Degree, Willamette University, Salem, OR 2008
Private Music Teacher since 2006
Member of National Association for Music Education (NAfME)
Member of Oregon Music Education Association (OMEA)

*** Lesson Details ***
All students will learn the basics of:
*breathing
*listening
*confidence

If you take weekly lessons and practice in between, you will find that you've:
*developed your repertoire
*increased your vocal range or technical skills
We can also focus our time on other subjects as necessary or as interesting to you.

Lessons begin with a warm-up and technical exercises (don't worry, they're fun!) and a review of the previous week's assignments and practice results or struggles. Then comes the exciting part: rehearsing the musical selections we've chosen for you to work on! Voice students are expected to rehearse 2-3 pieces of music in a minimum of 2 languages (English and one additional) while Piano and Flute students will work through method books and then branch out into their repertoire. As instrumental works are typically longer, these students usually study one piece of music at a time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is in a separate out building easily accessible from the street. There is one room with soundproofing and basic recording equipment. The studio is equipped with a piano, music stand, and a variety of music books. There is outside, covered seating for parents. Parking is free and easy to find on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For lessons at my studio, I provide a piano and music stand. For lessons at a student home, students must provide a piano or keyboard though I can provide a music stand. All students are expected to purchase 1-3 books of music, depending on their instrument of study, and one sheet music binder. All students are to bring a pencil with working eraser and a water bottle to lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Beginners are my forte! Whether you are looking for a teacher for your child or yourself, my lessons break down the complex art of music into easily-comprehended segments. At the end of each lesson, you will know what to focus on during practice sessions, leading to a successful week of study. Questions encouraged during lessons, and if a question comes up during practice I can be reached by email, too!

Want an idea of what you'll be studying? Take a look at some of the lesson books I use:
For piano, I highly recommend the Alfred's Basic library. With its combination of theory, aural skills, and technical exercises it has broad applications to all student ages and abilities. For young students, Alfred's Basic offers fun examples and alliterations which appeal to and capture the attention of children. Adults will find Alfred's All-In-One moves at a pace appropriate for higher-level thinkers while getting those fingers coordinated at the same time.
The primary focus for voice students is learning how to utilize the breath and train the ear to produce beautiful, balanced tone. A variety of books (many in the Schirmer or Hal Leonard series) are used to provide musical selections which challenge the student in rhythm, phrase, breath, and pronunciation. I require all voice students to sing in English and one other language, while experienced students will study and perform in many languages. Voice students are highly recommended to take piano lessons as well or to have a previous piano background in order to accompany themselves in practice and develop further theory skills.
