Miss Ena is always singing!
From an early age, I have been participating in music activities, such as choir as well as various musicals like 'Oliver' and 'The Sound of Music'. As music has always been one of my best friends. Like water, I enjoy drinking from the wellspring of muse and melody.
I enjoy music most when it is shared with the natural joy of children. I have an extensive background of teaching private voice, piano and guitar to children. It's the best job in the world, getting to watch a child grow through the magic of music! I received my Kindermusik license in Summer 2005. After working with Dana Harris, formerly of 'Dana's School of Music', Dana thought I would be a perfect Kindermusik teacher.
My education is both experience and university based. In 2003, I graduated from Clark College with a 3.7 gpa. During my two and a half years at Clark, I studied voice with April Brookins Duvic. I, then moved on to Portland State University. During my two years at PSU, I studied voice with Margaret Daane and piano with Connie Titterington. I also attended Marylhurst University working towards my BA in voice performance. I am now taking a break from school to work on some fundamental musical training. I study voice with Pollyanna Hancock Moody and studied piano with John Haek. I have done my best work at Marylhurst and plan to return in fall 2008.
My experience ranges from childhood productions to improv comedy groups. It is the joy of music that I shared with my late mother that built such a lifelong foundation. Singing and sharing with mom gave me some great tools for a successful life, but most importantly, it created an unbreakable bond between her and I and myself and music.

I have been a guitar and voice instructor for over 15 years. I really love this job! I had a real hard time learning guitar when I was growing up because of an accident to my left arm, but I wanted to play so much that I was able to overcome it. Because of this I think I have learned to be a very patient teacher. I see students who get frustrated and think that it's too hard to play the guitar, but I promise you my program is fun and simple.I can show you the steps to success. I have taught over 500 students in a variety of cities from Minneapolis Minnesota, to Los Angeles California, and now Portland Oregon. I am currently obtaining my Masters in Music education and spiritual psychology from Marylhurst, and I have taught every age from 5-65. I am also a performer, and I own my own music publishing company through ASCAP (American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers). I also currently teach Piano to level 2, so if you are a beginner, you will love my new program. Music is my life, I can help you make your dream of playing guitar or singing come true. You can do it!

I've studied music at Portland State University, and am well dug into the Portland music scene. I teach you how to turn basic chords and strumming patterns into your own musical ideas, as well as learning your favorite songs. I have experience teaching students how to play most any song in front of family and friends, or with others. Students will get real music theory training as well as advanced guitar techniques. I usually teach students to sing and play the songs in order to help students work on melody and chord structure at the same time.

I graduated from from Wheaton College in Massachusetts last May with a Bachelors in Music.
I am excited to tailor classes specifically to a student, finding out what he/she is interested in learning so each lesson is fun but also productive. I have been on both sides of the student experience, and I know that I was always way more eager to go to a lesson when we were playing or learning something that I had chosen.
I am proficient in both Drums and Guitar (acoustic and electric) and have a studio in my basement perfect for teaching lessons from. I also plan on mixing in chart reading and some music theory with both Drums and Guitar to all level of players...But don't worry, it will only be to help you understand more fully what you are learning.
I hope to inspire students to find their own specific taste in music, and think creatively ALWAYS. These two things are the cornerstone of a well rounded musician.
