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. *** Lesson Details *** I want you and I to have fun! One of the most exciting ...

About David

Whatever music you want to sing—any style, any time period—I promise I will teach you to sing it in your very best voice. My name is David and I look forward to the opportunity to teach you how to sing your best, whatever style it is you want to learn. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music at Oregon State University, where I learned how to sing classical music well. In addition to that, I have years of experience in rock-and-roll bands, and have learned how to apply the lessons I learned from my classical voice teachers to my career as a (very) minor rock star. That's exactly what I want to help you with: whatever you want to sing, from any period in music history, I know how to teach you to sing with your best voice. Singing is one of the things that makes us all human and I ...

You'll find few singing instructors more in tune with (as it were) or more encouraging than David. He's extremely knowledgeable about music/voice theory and, as he gets to know your style and personality, will absolutely tailor lessons to your vocal strengths and needs. High recommendations all around!

David is a fantastic instructor!!! I personally love his unique approach which combines the art AND science of singing. His explanations of whats happening physiologically actually help you learn what is correct and incorrect technique. My singing has absolutely improved learning from David.

David helps this would-be singer get over the fear of performing, of helping me improve the skills that make me feel more confident about being part of a performing group

About Charles

I’m Dr Charles. I have been a guitarist since 1977. I began teaching guitar when I was earning my Masters degree in music education from Portland State University in 1998-1999. I also taught guitar privately while I was earning my doctorate in music from Florida Sate University and teaching music history and music analysis at the university as well. I earned my PhD in music in 2008. During my years in Tallahassee I served as a guitarist backing Charles Atkins, Florida’s most well-known blues and gospel singer. During that time I have helped numerous individuals maximize their talent on the guitar. I have worked with children, home-schoolers, teenagers who want to form bands, people who want to strum guitar in their church, people who want to write songs, and retired people who are still ...

About Ken

Hi, My name is Ken M and I can't wait to meet you! I love playing Saxophone. I've been playing 40+ years, and teaching private lessons for 10 years. I love helping students gain strength, courage and confidence to develop into the musician you're meant to be. We'll learn how you best learn and at your pace. All lessons are tailored specifically to your needs. Here are some general topics covered: posture, breathing, tone and sound quality, scales and chords, improvisation, performance techniques, how to read music & ear training. or just to stop that embarrassing squeaking. We'll discover your creative genius that's been waiting to be found and expressed, so you and others will enjoy the music you make. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Saxophone · In studio
I had a great time with Ken as an instructor! He introduced me to the basics of saxophone. He made me feel comfortable and able to achieve. I have never played an instrument. His lesson plans and homework kept me moving along. I felt I had my feet under me as a result of his instruction. I wanted to learn to play for my church; I look forward to taking more lessons from Ken in-home in the future.
