Private instructor specializing in singing, acting, and oratory. Conservatory trained theatre maker, with over ten years experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds in both private and group environments.

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 harness years of music teaching in diverse settings (including three years' private studio plus three years as a choral director and two years as a music instructor with homeless youth) for a diverse studio meeting real artistic needs. I also am a fluent and experienced Spanish tutor, teacher, and interpreter and offer effective, individualized Spanish tutoring at your convenience.
Highlights from my career include:
* Professional singing and playing experience in diverse settings (opera stages, pubs, churches, you name it)
* Intensive and well-rounded musical training at renowned Brigham Young University in clarinet and voice (earned BM in vocal performance, 2007), including coursework in piano/keyboard, music theory, pedagogy.
* Member of two professional associations, NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and AGMA (American Guild of Musical Artists) (2007-2008) and networked with local associations (Classical Revolution PDX, for example)
* Mental health, domestic violence, and disabilities direct service work as an advocate, caseworker, support group facilitator, and center director (2007-2012). Broad yet intensive experience in social services enables holistic and effective guidance with the huge array of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues and nuances that affect musical development and performance (bodily tension, working through nerves, motivation, stress relief techniques, goal-setting, life changes and music, disorders support, etc.)... Basically, a life music coach at your beckon call, if that is what you need.
* Years of professional teaching, training, and experience in a wide variety of fields (including Spanish, early education/preschool, healthy relationships and abuse, micro-enterprise, and finances) provide dynamic tools to connect with all ages and learning styles, in addition to instruction based on individualized plans and needs
* Choral music conductor experience (four years volunteer instructor) allows me to offer a broader view of instrumentation, developing your voice/instrument in a group, and establishing a presence in the music community

I have a Master's in Vocal Performance from Portland State University, and over a decade of vocal training and performance experience.
I have experience teaching voice to kids through adults. My voice students range from age 10 to middle school to high school. I have also taught college adults and older.
My voice students range in ability from absolute beginner to intermediate with significant previous musical and vocal training. I have helped the beginning students learn to match pitch and read notes on the staff. My beginning and intermediate students learn to sing with purer vowels, increased breath support, and use a greater range.
I also teach beginning piano to all ages. I teach students as young as 4 or 5 as long as they are able to stay focused for the duration of a half hour lesson. Most of my piano students are in the 7 -10 range, but I have taught some beginning adults as well as a supplement to voice lessons.

My name is Kyle S. and I'm incredibly passionate about music education for all ages. Over twenty years of playing all instruments has taught me there is not one specific way to teach music, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in. I started teaching music lessons in after school programs when I was eleven and fell totally in love. I continued to do this for many years driving to neighboring towns, volunteering at church youth groups and local Boys and Girls Club all around my hometown.
I went on to study Music Education at Oregon State University and Guitar Performance at the University of Oregon. At each of these Universities I taught students my age, and a few professors, as well as locals in each town.
In Portland I've been gigging, playing on records, recording music for films, and volunteering every week at Nonprofit Music Schools around town to help underprivileged kids, and expose them to the joy of music. Give me a call and we can talk about what you're interested in, and get lessons started.
Look forward to hearing from you!

I have a Master’s in Opera Performance from the Boston and New England Conservatories as well as graduating from Vocal Performance programs at Boston University and Western Washington University. I have sung professionally with Boston Lyric Opera, Children’s Theater Companies, churches and synagogue and have toured on the east coast as well as Athens, Greece. Premiering new music is a specialty - I can help you prepare your pieces for auditions. My students have successful auditions for college opera and music theater programs, and as choir soloists.
Students gain a larger vocal range and an easy, natural way of singing whether it is in a rock band, choir or as a soloist. Together we find the joy of singing while building a solid technique.
I also work with small children as a Musikgarten teacher and have toured artist residency programs which introduce children to music and theater in schools. I was adjunct faculty at the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University, local music studios as well as maintaining my private teaching practice.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
