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".

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.

After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in music, I moved to New York where I lived for 11 years. I have been a professional multi-instrumentalist since then and a member of many bands including Beirut and Arcade Fire. I have also performed and/or recorded with many others including David Byrne, Passion Pit, Coldplay, and LCD Sound system. I have performed in dozens of countries, at some of the world's biggest festivals (Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury), and on many television shows (Colbert, Letterman, Fallon).
I have experience in playing and teaching many different styles and can teach you what YOU want to learn. Playing music can be a very rewarding experience, but should also be fun. I can promise you will have fun in our lessons and have fun with music in general.

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 with my encouragement and support.
I love to teach, and can help you love to learn!
Singing, Flute, Music Theory
I am a fourth year college student, studying music education. I have been playing the flute for 10 years and singing for 4 years now. My passion for teaching comes from me wanting to be a teacher since I was under the age of 10. I always found myself giving up my recess time to go into a younger classroom and help out the students, and I just love working with anyone younger than me.

My name is Brian L. and I have spent most of my time involved in music in some form or another.And like most musicians, I enjoy other artistic forms of artistic expression. I was an avid reader of science fiction growing up. With current technology, seeing those stories on a large screen is incredible. The movies have always been a way to pass the time. A dream of mine is to write great film score music. For me, its the best of both worlds.
Love sushi and would eat it 3 times a day. While I was a flute major at CSU Long Beach, I spent 3 weeks in Japan on tour with the CSU Wind Ensemble, the real Sushiland. One of the fringe benefits being a musician is the opportunity to travel. Taiwan, Alaska, Nevada, New York, Idaho and Italy are some of the places music has taken me.
I currently live in Milwaukie and spend my time practicing, arranging, and have recently taken a stab at composing original music.
"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."
