I'm a multi-instrumentalist from the Northwest with lots of love for teaching people to groove. I got my bachelors in music from Whitman College with an emphasis in Jazz Performance. I can teach anyone to rock, swing or get unreasonably funky. Lessons can be casual or serious and I'm down to tell you how to get to Carnegie Hall or onto the stage at the local jam.

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 graduated from from Wheaton College in Massachusetts last May with a Bachelors in Music.
I am excited to tailor classes specifically to a student, finding out what he/she is interested in learning so each lesson is fun but also productive. I have been on both sides of the student experience, and I know that I was always way more eager to go to a lesson when we were playing or learning something that I had chosen.
I am proficient in both Drums and Guitar (acoustic and electric) and have a studio in my basement perfect for teaching lessons from. I also plan on mixing in chart reading and some music theory with both Drums and Guitar to all level of players...But don't worry, it will only be to help you understand more fully what you are learning.
I hope to inspire students to find their own specific taste in music, and think creatively ALWAYS. These two things are the cornerstone of a well rounded musician.

Hello! I am a flutist, drummer, and composer who graduated from Lewis & Clark College. I received my BA in flute performance with honors and had many playing and performing opportunities there.
I was the principle flutist of the Lewis & Clark Wind Symphony and Orchestra and was the drummer for the jazz combos, winning the best composer award. I performed as a featured soloist with the orchestra and organized and performed a junior and senior flute recital. I am well versed in music from the baroque era through the 21st century and have studied and played many styles of music. As a drummer and flutist I have played with folk singers, funk bands, in jazz ensembles, experimental groups, and with chamber ensembles. I really enjoy playing different styles of music and I am very serious about making music at a high level in any genre I participate.
Being well versed in different areas of music has allowed me to experience different ways of creating music and has lead me to meet people I wouldn't have if I only played one type of music. Playing jazz as well as classical music has really informed my composing too. I am able to take ideas from the masters of both styles and blend them to create music that is truly based off of my experiences. These experiences are ones that I can't wait to share with my students!
My most recent project is with a contemporary jazz quintet The Wishermen in which I play drums and write the compositions. We recently released our debut studio album and the process of recording, mixing, and producing an album has been invaluable.
I am very passionate about teaching and passing on my love and knowledge of music.

"Cole, you are destroying my son's summer video game aspirations."
For a over decade, Cole Robinson has been dedicated to music education, community development, and youth mentorship. As an educator Cole has taught, designed, and supervised unique and highly acclaimed curriculum in music education, outdoor leadership, and youth empowerment.
Raised in Newport, Oregon, Cole began learning to play guitar at the age of eight. During his teenage years he would travel to seek the tutelage of guitarists including Dan Balmer, John Stowel, Tommy Emmanuel, & Jeff Peretz. He left Newport to pursue his education at the University of Oregon and received a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies in 2007. Shortly after, he relocated to Portland, Oregon to continue his education, this time in Music. Under the supervision of Darrell Grant, Jeff Putterman, and Alan Jones, Cole received a Bachelor of Arts in music with a focus on Guitar, Composition, and Music Technology from Portland State University in 2011. During this time he supervised the Audio Engineering Program (Portland State Professional Sound) at PSU where he produced over fifty live musical performances annually while training student audio engineers in a hands-on environment.
Cole’s work as an environmental advocate and outdoor educator has always run parallel to his passion for music. With the aim of improving and maintaining the health and beauty of our beloved Northwest, he has coordinated numerous events including cleanups of the Rouge, Willamette, and Sandy Rivers, written multiple grants for environmental advocacy groups, and has led over one hundred wilderness trips for youth and adults from highly diverse backgrounds. Cole has had the pleasure of working with such great youth and environmentally focused organizations as Culture Jam!, the PSU & U of O Outdoor Programs, All Souls Community Center in New Orleans, and The International School in Switzerland. Cole has been actively certified as a Wilderness First Responder since 2004.
In late 2011, Cole was hired by Portland Parks and Recreation as Coordinator of the Teen Environmental Adventures Program and dedicated himself to providing Portland’s Youth with opportunities to become involved with environmental awareness and immersion. In this position, Cole developed many partnerships with local community agencies including Hacienda, ROSE Community Development Corporation, IRCO, Volunteers of America, Latino Network, and the Portland Bhutanese and Nepali Refugee community to provide hundreds of hours of environmental education, job-training, academic support, and long-term youth mentorship programming for these groups.
In 2013, he voluntarily left his position with the City of Portland to focus more directly on teaching, composing, and performing music through the founding of Pacific Guitar Studio (PGS). Through PGS, Cole aims help people find the musicianship, mentorship, and creativity that they seek though providing individual lessons, coaching ensembles, and providing school-break youth music camps.
Cole Robinson looks forward to working with you or your student and helping guide them to a deeper appreciation and understanding for what it means to be an artist and musician.
"Cole inspires quietly through example and cares deeply about the young people he works with. His goal is to figure out how to make each individual shine, excel, and feel empowered and this he does!"
