Peter Q. Portland, OR

I've got a drum set, a djembe, and a dumbek in my studio. Along with many shakers, a wooden fish, lots of sticks, tambourines.... We can start at the beginning of counting to four or work out of the the book Pure Rhythm by Adam Rudolph if you are really into advanced Polyrhythms.

About Peter

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. *** Lesson Details *** I like to teach my students what they want to learn! I'm always game for setting up a fun path to being able to play your favorite songs as fast as possible. I don't scold or shame and having a blast is the name of my game. I can teach you to improvise, read music, become a strummer or virtuoso, it's all up to you. *** Studio Equipment *** Lessons in the basement studio, piano, guitars, amps, hand ...

Peter is wonderful with kids, he's empathetic and eager to find the right fit with your child. He is very well versed in multiple methods from Jazz to Classical to Beatbox and he's super fun. I'd highly recommend him.

About kyle

Hey! 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 and Jazz Performance on Guitar at Portland State University! At each of these Universities

Kyle is teaching my five year old to play piano. She is a beginner, somewhat shy and very strong willed. He is patient with her, tailoring the instruction to her speed, interests and attention span. He is skilled at praising her for her progress and continuing to push her. She responds very well to the open learning environment he has created and feels comfortable with him even after only a few lessons. I was concerned starting her so young, but she expressed great interest and Kyle has connected with that in a lovely way. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Kyle has been one of the most helpful music teachers I've had the privilege to take lessons from. He cuts through all of the extraneous pedantries that so often inhibit real effective music instruction and learning. He is approachable and down to earth while wielding a vast and comprehensive knowledge of music, which makes for a genuinely satisfying and productive educational experience. Five stars for sure.

Kyle has a deep understanding of music. He knows the theory far beyond an ivy halls definition of things. He understands what is important and what is used by a playing musician. This is helping me get a deep understanding of music. I am very confident that if I put in the effort I can not help but become a good musician who will be able to lay a nice arrangement under a melody or accompany myself or others. Kyle gives you the knowledge and the exercises needed to succeed. I highly recommend Kyle.
