About Me

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, I'm all about music fun, but I also ask my students to work hard.
I believe a child should feel successful at every lesson. Each person has musicality within them and when a child is ready, I love to help them bring out that inner musician.

We will work on a wide range of aspects in music from theory, ear training, sight reading, rhythm and more. For piano I use the Faber collection. I will make sure getting your materials is easy and uncomplicated.

So, get set and ready to have some super music fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: desk, sofa, parents can sit in on lesson, piano, music stand, small table and music stand for guitar lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
My students must have an instrument of decent quality. I have them pay for their books, but I pick them up.

*** Specialties ***

About Me

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. 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!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm fairly laid back, and teach from a number of different texts depending on the interests of the student. Each student is different, and I vary instruction accordingly. I have a lot of experience songwriting, composing, and playing as a sideman in groups on different instruments. I've been part of bands led by myself and been hired by other people, as well as composing for different groups of instruments from trios to full orchestras.

If there is interest, I can also provide worksheets based on the curriculum and standards held by the University of Oregon, and Portland State University.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private home studio equipped with a many guitars, a piano, a Wurlitzer, electric bass and amplifier, two drum kits, and a beautiful kitty.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitars, amplifiers, and notebooks for all students even if they do not own guitars or amplifiers. I also make copies and email attachments of all homework, and record lessons and send them to students to listen to when practicing.

*** Specialties ***
I've been playing and studying guitar since I was seven years old. I've attended Berkley School of Music summer workshops, camps, seminars, and presented music theory papers at conferences at the University of Oregon. I can and am willing to teach any type of musical style or interest to any skill level!
