About Chad

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 ...

Great piano teacher

Chad gives piano lesson to my 7 years old daughter. I am very impressed with Chad. Chad gentle, easy going manner makes him extremely well suited to teach piano. Chad is humble, patient, knowledgeable, and organized. He always makes lesson fun and very productive. All in all, my daughter absolutely enjoys playing piano. She is not only learning how to play piano but also developing a love and understanding for music. Thank you so much for being such a great teacher!!!
Happy mom,

Chad's great! My 7-year-old son looks forward to his lessons!

My son began piano lessons in July of 2013, not long after his 7th birthday. Chad comes to our home before school on Monday mornings - a terrific convenience to us - and despite the early hour, he is routinely prompt, focused, and affable. Joe looks forward to his lessons. Chad has found a magical balance for succeeding with young students by demonstrating tremendous patience, cultivating a joyous mood, upholding high standards of execution, and fostering in Joe an inner sense of discipline. The pace of Chad's instruction is right in step with Joe's interest and ability such that Joe is drawn to practice through his own initiative - a result attributable in part to the inspiration he receives in his lessons. As a professional music educator myself, I appreciate the emphasis that Chad has placed on music literacy from the very beginning. His choice of lesson materials has been spot on. We're very pleased with our choice of piano teachers for our son through TakeLessons.

Lucky me learning from Chad for a summer!

As much as skill at the piano as an adult student, I wanted motivation! Chad's patient and good-natured work with me on piano pieces was so, so effective. I could hardly pass by the piano without trying some of his techniques to improve.

There are many websites that will tell you instructors don't like teaching adults, but Elisa was a wonderful and patient instructor for all ages. She is able to adjust her approach to accommodate all age groups and skill levels. It's important to let Elisa know what your goals are so she can mold the lessons to help accomplish your goals. Elisa also arranges group rehearsals and recitals to broaden the students abilities in group settings (optional).
Nick D. Tualatin, OR

About Nick

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 College of Music, ...

My 9 year old told me Nick is the best piano teacher ever. He loves going to his lessons and is progressing nicely I think. When my son goes off on a tangent or wants to talk about the billion things going on in his head at the moment, Nick is super patient and gently steers him back on track.

About Katelyn

Every student is different. I have experience with teaching toddlers to retirees and believe that the best way to reach a student and have them become proficient in their skill is to build a relationship with them, make them comfortable and find out how best they learn. I structure my instruction to meet you where you are at while challenging you and encouraging you. I believe a person can truly learn anything once it is explained in a way they understand and the process is made fun. I believe firmly in articulating to my students the method behind the subject, so they can understand its form and then begin to see it's pattern. I have experience with various subjects and enjoy them all. Let's find a way to reach your goals together!

Thomas V. Portland, OR

About Thomas

Hi, I'm Tom Vredevoogd. After an award winning high school jazz band career I went on to earn an MFA in painting from Ohio University. I couldn't stay away from music, and I continued to study traditional, jazz and classical violin and guitar with many fine private teachers. I have been a licensed preschool teacher since 2002. I have also been teaching music classes/lessons, on and off, since 1997. Many of my students have been successes in orchestras, bands and contests. I have also won numerous awards in major fiddle contests. I do love to see students enjoy learning as much as I have. I currently play jazz violin and accordion with Pink Martini co-founder Lyndee Mah and her band.
