About Damian

I majored in Music and Classical Guitar Performance – studies included Music Theory, Performance, Composition, Sight Singing, Computers and Music, and Music of the Western World. I have been teaching guitar and theory since 2002, but as a volunteer minister, I have been teaching most my life. I have a love for people and different cultures so I have been learning Romanian for the past 6yr in order to reach out to the Romanian population in Portland. I truly like taking a personal interest in students, and seeing them progress. I strive to share my passion for music. I believe that if you make a creative lesson plan that excites their imagination you will be astounded by what they are capable of learning.
