I am a life long musician with nearly 40 years as a professional musician, both touring and in recording studio work.
With over 27 years teaching music, I have developed comprehensive lesson plans, relying upon material I have created and accumulated in building a massive library of diverse stylistic lesson materials from Rock to Blues and Bluegrass, Folk, Finger Style to Slide guitar. I am also well versed in Worship, CCM and Gospel styles.

My music education began with formality in Classical music. I became a professional musician very early in life, at about age 18. I gained valuable knowledge and understanding in the "real world", through experience and from fellow musicians. Along the way I continued my ...
Bonnie develops your ear by engaging your critical listening skills each time you play through a song. She engages your body by providing specific exercises to assist in making the best sound possible. Her lessons inspire you to prepare throughout the week and soar to a new level of knowledge during lessons. No matter your other goals for music lessons, her goal is to enable you to sing your soul through the medium of fingers flying over keys or voice lifted in melody.
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 ...
I have been a guitar and voice instructor for over 15 years, and a piano teacher for 3. I have currently added beginning violin and ukulele. I have also tutored elementary students and worked for Montessori's for many 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 ...
I have taken piano lessons for the past 17 years and have been teaching for the last 5. While working on my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Willamette University, I decided to give piano lessons during the summer and found it to be an exciting way to connect with new people of all ages, give them a skill that they can use for the rest of their life, and grow as a pianist myself. Now that I have graduated, I am focusing on teaching more full time, and could not be more thrilled about it. Now giving Skype lessons!

Having had the experience of putting in a lot of practice during the week, only to be too tense and nervous during my lesson to play well, I try to make my lessons a place where students can feel calm and relaxed. I do this by implementing humor into the ...
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 ...
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.

Each lesson is customized to your learning style and different for everyone depending on what you want to learn. Most of my students like to learn from scratch which would include the following:
In the first 3 lessons you will learn basic guitar fundamentals, basic 1-4-5 song progressions (the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, how to strum, mute, & play notes on the guitar.
We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play ...
