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)...

excellent piano teacher

My boys starting taking piano lessons with Barbara D. when they were about 7 years old. She is an amazing teacher and always makes them feel special. She is so upbeat and enthusiastic, yet very patient with kids and their needs and moods. She will find out what kind of music they like or want to learn and then find that music at their appropriate level. It is a wonderful motivator for the kids and keeps the lessons so interesting and exciting for them. Barbara D. is a very skilled, talented artist in every way and an amazing teacher!

We love Emily!

My son is taking singing lessons from Emily in our home, and I'm thrilled with his progress. All I was looking for was a way to build his confidence, but now I have a kid that sings while doing the dishes, explores new music types, and is learning to read music...in less than a couple of months. I love how Emily has adapted each lesson toward what my son is interested in....scales to the Dr. Who or Star Wars themes...who knew? We love Emily and highly recommend her.

Emily is a very fun and awesome teacher!

I took singing lessons with Emily for a little more then 3 months and my singing has improved tremendously, thanks to Emily! She was always patient with me, she never made me feel embarrassed or like I can't sing. She was flexible with choice of songs, even Russian ones! The focus was always on me and to improve my voice. I would recommend Emily to anyone. She is very fun and easy to work with!

Beginning students, intermediate, some advanced, including theory and composition, performance, improvisation, notation, acoustic and electronic keyboards.

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 ...

Experienced Piano teacher available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical skills. I am classically trained, have played in blues/rock bands, and have some jazz improv experience. I enjoy using the Faber method books, since they include many fun teacher/student duets. I enjoy helping people to find the fun in playing piano!

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!

About Nick

***About Me*** Music is almost more than a passion for me, it's how I hear the world! That guy singing the harmony to the crosswalk jingle? That's me. Though my love for music began long before I ever picked up an instrument, I began taking guitar lessons at age 10. By age 12 I was writing music and by 13 I played my music at my first talent show with my band. In high school I started studying piano and voice, and performed with the Guitar Program, Jazz Ensemble and Men's Choir. I played solo and with multiple bands, playing rock, acoustic, jazz, rock, metal and classical guitar. After High School I spent a year studying music at University of Oregon. Though I enjoyed my time at U of O, I left the next year and moved to Boston to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, ...
