Portland, OR

View Full Profile

I have been performing and teaching lessons as my full time career for over 10 years. I am new to Portland, and I'm very excited to establish my teaching studio here.

I teach ages 7 through adult, beginners through advanced, and enjoy customizing each student's lessons according to their own goals. I often include different genres and styles of music, mindfulness, meditation, and body awareness practices, ear training, improvisation, and music theory.

About Emily
With over twenty years of flute experience, Emily H. is new to the Portland area. Emily has served as principal flutist of the Union Symphony in Charlotte, NC and flutist with the Alla Prima Flute and Harp Duo and the Quintessence Wind Quintet. She also has taught flute for over 15 years, and is now accepting students in Portland.

Emily holds a Bachelor of Music degree, summa cum laude, from the Hartt School in Hartford, Connecticut.

With a holistic mind/body approach to music, Emily has supplemented her academic study with further education in Alexander Technique, yoga, body mapping, and mindfulness meditation. She incorporates these techniques into her own playing and into her teaching.

In 2014, Emily H. and her duo partner Kirsten Carrell Osborne released their Alla Prima Duo debut album Song To the Waking Sun, which includes
music inspired by the natural and spiritual world.

Emily is fantastic! Within the first 15 minutes of my first lesson, I was sounding much, much better. I'm an adult returning to the flute and Emily is teaching me more than I ever learned in years of lessons. In addition to being knowledgeable, she makes me comfortable. Now I just don't want to put my flute down.

If you are an adult beginner, or "re-beginner," or really anyone wanting to learn and improve, then look no further!!! Emily is hands down the best music instructor I've had the pleasure to study under. As someone with performance anxiety, she helped me feel comfortable playing and was always encouraging--never an unkind word and never made me feel uncomfortable for making mistakes! She truly cares about her students' improvement and that her students find joy in creating music. Emily's knowledge and background is astounding! Need music recommendations? She has them. Need instrument recommendations? She knows what's what. Interested in the history behind music theory and interpretation of classical pieces, she can refer you to countless materials. Emily is a fountain of knowledge and talent. One really cannot find a more wonderful instructor.

About Anna-Lisa H.

Flute instruction that includes technique work on tone quality,agility,and musicality in a fun and supportive environment. Recitals twice per year.

About Anna-Lisa
June Lessons available!! Only want a few lessons or to get a jump start on the next school year???? June is the perfect month with the option of performing at the end of the month even if you have only had a few lessons! The studio closes for the month of July and reopens in August.

I grew up with music surrounding me. Both my parents play many instruments and they have passed that love on to me and my brothers. I started singing as a toddler and piano and flute came soon after. I love to teach, am patient and help my students to achieve their best. I create an environment for my students to feel safe expressing themselves, making mistakes,laughing and honing their musical language.

In my voice lessons I teach solid technique focusing on bringing out the beauty of each individual's voice giving them the tools to be able to sing musi
cally. I've been told by students that they have learned more from me in 2 lessons then they have working with prior teachers for years.

I earned my BM in Vocal Performance from the distinguished Eastman School of Music. I have earned the Bravo!Scholar and Howard Hanson award as well as first place in the Schubert Club vocal competition. I continue my studies with acclaimed Mezzo-soprano Gail Dubinbaum in Phoenix and I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).

I've sung all over the united states as well as in Germany and Italy. I performed the role of Frasquita in Phoenix Opera's production of Carmen as well as La Fata Azzurra in "La Bella Dormente nel Bosco" and as Sister Constance in "Dialogues des Carmelites" of which I was acclaimed by reviewers to have "revealed a luminous voice, and sang with ease and spontaneity." I have been a soloist with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra as well as with the Eastman Collegium. This past December I was a featured soloist with the Phoenix Symphony and returned to the Phoenix Opera to perform The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute as well as worked with the Ohio Light Opera performing the lead roles of Hannah Glawari in "The Merry Widow" and Madame Pompadour in "Madame Pompadour."

I'm equally comfortable with musical theater and have played leading roles in many productions including Marian in "The Music Man," Laurie in Oklahoma, Margy in "State Fair," Rapunzel in "Into the Woods," and Mrs. Gardiner in the premier production of "Pride and Prejudice."

My students have advanced in the Classical Singer National Competition, Arizona Fiesta Chorus Competition, Hot Pipes Competition, and have been accepted to and attended summer programs at distinguished music schools including Westminster College and Eastman School of Music. They also perform with local theaters including Copperstar Theater, Moezart Productions, EVCT and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every vocal student will have different talents and struggles and will be at different levels so, I structure my lessons for the individual. However, with every student I focus on teaching correct breathing and healthy vocal use to enhance the natural beauty of the voice.

Overall I have a laid back, humorous personality. I work to help the student achieve their goals whether its to be able to sing better in the shower or to become a professional musician. I offer 2 recitals per year to perform at and often form duets/trio's out of my students. I also offer studio classes for my singers who desire to have more performing experience with immediate encouraging feedback and for my more advanced singers I offer Master classes with guest artists to perform at and attend.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ piano, books, mirror, and seating for parents. Parents can observe if the student is comfortable with that but, I do not allow parents to comment on the student's singing of performance during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If they are a voice student they will need a piano, and they will need to purchase their own music and if possible purchase a recording device to record lessons and technique exercises. If they are a flute student, they will need to provide the music, and the instrument. If they are a piano student, obviously they would need a piano and would provide their own music based on my suggestion.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Opera, Operetta, Broadway, and jazz. I also teach pop, rock and country. On the piano and flute I teach classical and contemporary. I do not teach jazz piano or flute.

I started taking flute lessons with Stephanie last September 2016. I have been playing flute since 2011 and play regularly at church. I take a hour long lesson. I have really enjoyed taking lessons from her. She has also been willing to adjust to my schedule, when she could, when work won’t allow me to make it to my normal lesson.
I had been taking lessons from another flute teacher since 2011 and knew it was time to change. Stephanie has always been able to help me. She is very knowledgeable about all questions and problems I was having on playing the flute or reading music. When questioning a technique she is able to demonstrate it or explain it in a different way so I could understand it. I’ve always had trouble with the high notes and alternate fingering and she definitely has helped me on those. Stephanie personally is a lot more enjoyable than my last teacher. She always seems happy to see me.
I also play Low Flutes and just bought my first Bass Flute. She also plays low flutes.

Tempe, AZ

View Full Profile

The flute is my strongest secondary instrument. I can teach beginning level flute lessons to about a 4th year level. We will work on tone in all registers of the instrument, dynamics, and general musicianship. We will learn and review basic scales, arpeggios, and technique. I also encourage the exploration of extended techniques like the 'jet whistle.' I can incorporate music theory, conducting, and music composition on the side depending on the student's interest. I can start beginners at an early age starting on fife and then help them switch over to flute as they grow. I have a lot of patience and experience helping students learn how to blow into the flute.

About Jeffrey
I currently teach over 30 students ages 4-75 piano, flute, saxophone, clarinet, recorder, and singing. This is my full time job, this is not a side hobby to make extra cash. I am a professional teacher with a big schedule and flexibility. I do not travel, students come to my home.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I have taught general music K-8 in a charter school and basically had to build a music program with no funding and almost no supplies. I left this job in favor of teaching privately because the staff and administration were horribly disrespectful and unappreciative of what I did for their school. Teaching privately allows me to teach music passionately without limits (and without administration who know nothing about music telling me what to do!). I can also focus on one student at a time, rather than try to manage an entire cl
ass.

I have taught private lessons for about 13 years. These have mostly been clarinet lessons because that is my primary instrument, but in the last three years, I've expanded what I can teach. At one time, I was teaching several high school students music composition, music theory, and ear training to prepare for college entrance as music composition majors. One of them did get into the Juilliard school and was actually placed in advanced classes because of the theory and ear training work I did with him. I've also taught one of my flute students for years, starting her at an early age first on recorder, switching to fife, and then on to flute. I currently teach several students from 4 yrs old-adult various levels flute, clarinet, and piano.

I have been a music theory/ear training TA at ASU for four years. I can definitely prepare anyone for college level music academics. Most high school band programs do not prepare students for the academic side of music study in college.

LESSONS I TEACH:
Clarinet: All ages (starting 4th/5th grade) and levels
Flute: All ages (starting 3rd/4th grade with fife), beginner to high school level
Piano: All ages (starting at age 4-5) and levels
Recorder: All ages (starting 2nd grade) and levels
Trumpet: All ages (starting 5th grade) beginning only
French Horn: All ages (starting 5th grade) beginning only
Music Theory/Ear Training: recommended for HS students looking for intensive music study in college
Music Composition: recommended for HS students or adults who want to write music, or pursue music composition in college

WHY I TEACH MUSIC:
I love music, and I enjoy passing my passion and knowledge on to others. Watching a student, grow, explore, and enjoy music is a great reward. Music gave me a voice to express myself, and a creative outlet, and I want others to have the same opportunity. I also enjoy the social interaction with students.

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE LESSONS:
I have a lot to offer students (check out my specialties). A school music teacher or band director doesn't have the time to give one-on-one attention. Nor do they have the chance to go deeper into music with students. I will help you find music that you like at your level, and I will also teach you how to practice and correct bad habits.

MY STUDIO:
I teach in the music room of my house, which is clean and cozy. If you are a parent, my couch in the living room is a comfortable place to wait during the lesson, or you may sit outside on the porch (weather permitting). I live in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Tempe.

LESSON DETAILS:
I am a firm believer in the humanistic approach to learning. I want to teach you what you want to learn, the way you learn best, doing activities that keep you engaged and add growth as a musician. Come to me with your questions, curiosities, and requests for what you want to learn ("How do I play two notes at the same time on the clarinet?" "What is this key for?" "I really want to play Sleigh Ride"). Please bring in any musical goals you may have for yourself. I incorporate meaningful scales and exercises that apply to the music that you are working on (they are not chosen at random). Conducting, ear training, music theory, and music composition are all incorporated into lessons over time (depending on the student's interest). I am aware of the state standards (they are my instinct anyway), but I ultimately analyze your interests and abilities and follow your lead, acting as your guide along the way. My teaching and activities are age appropriate.

If you are interested in music composition lessons, I give advice on your work, give ideas to continue your music, educate you on instrument capabilities, help with orchestration, open your ears to music by others, teach theory/counterpoint/form, give you advice on how to get your music performed, help you use Sibelius software, and help prepare a college portfolio if you are pursuing music composition in college.

STUDIO EQUIPMENT:
~3 pianos (new grand, upright, and digital keyboard)
~2 different toy pianos (Schoenhut and J. Chein)
~iMac computer with Sibelius 6 (for writing music)
~Music for Little Mozarts starter pack with the cute puppets and music board (for young beginners on piano)
~Music stand, clarinet stand

~SPECIALTIES~
TEACHING TO CHILDREN AT YOUNG AGES:
If your child is showing interest in music at an early age, I can start as early as age 4 on piano. I use the "Music for Little Mozarts" series that come with cute little puppets, and the storybook lesson style is perfect. I also have 2 nice toy pianos that can be incorporated into the lesson. If your child wants to play a wind instrument at an early age, I start them on recorder at about age 7. I can then switch them over to fife (a smaller simpler flute) in a year or so, and then to flute -or- they can go from recorder to clarinet at about 4th or 5th grade.

INCORPORATING CONDUCTING TECHNIQUES:
If taking lessons on a wind instrument, I teach conducting patterns and techniques so the student learns how to follow a conductor and what it means to lead musicians visually without speaking. Musicians rely a fair amount on body language to communicate while playing together. I've also found that incorporating conducting makes lessons fun, and it improves the student's sense of rhythm and control.

INCORPORATING MUSIC THEORY/EAR TRAINING:
Music is more than just breathing and moving fingers up and down. Great musicians understand music and have good listening skills. Knowing how music works (music theory) actually helps students recognize patterns and learn music faster (or spend less time practicing). Ear training helps with intonation and playing music with others (you'll sound better and notice more detail in music!). I do activities that are age and ability appropriate; most young students love listening games with their instrument.

INCORPORATING MUSIC COMPOSITION:
For variety, I teach students how to use Sibelius (using my computer) to write music for their instrument. This encourages creativity, an awareness of how music works, and helps them learn technology. Plus, they get the pleasure of writing their own music and playing it! I print the music, and it looks like real published music!

SHEET MUSIC:
I love thrift shopping, and I collect lots of music for my students. Music can be expensive, so I try to save you the time and money if possible. I only get used music in good condition.

Jeffrey was very pleasant from the moment I entered the studio. He was very kind and patient as I am a beginner on learning piano.

I have taught flute lessons for 20 years. My students study either in my studio at my home(which is decorated in a fun pink Victorian style) or online. Every year we have mini recitals at my home where students showcase works in progress and we have a party. Then at the end of the year, we have a fun formal recital at a church and everyone gets dressed up and shows off a piece. My students often hold first chairs at their schools and do well on chair auditions.

About Elizabeth
I have taught flute to children and adults for about 20 years. During that time, I have continued to develop as a flutist by taking my own lessons with professional symphony players and by playing principal flute in a community orchestra. I strongly believe in positive reinforcement and applauding my students as they make strides. You may find my profile on Linked in, and Elizabeth Pickens, flute instructor on Facebook. I also have a website fluteteacher.net which I encourage you to visit.

As an adult student I appreciate Elizabeth's attention to so much more than just the notes on a page. She is a terrific encourager, and an especially good problem solver for people like me who have a stream of questions about the instrument, its place in music and history, and music theory. I recommend her for students who are beginning as youngsters and for others who choose to learn to play the flute at any stage in life because she believes that music enhances life.

There is not enough that I can say about Mr. Blackwell's teaching. Under his instructions, I have learned not only to play the bass by ear, but also I am able to read and understand music theory. Mr. Blackwell constantly challenges you to go further with every lesson. The best part of the class is the jam sessions! I love playing songs being the lead at times and a support to the band. I can't wait to play with our lead guitarist Michael. If you are looking for a music instructor, I highly recommend that you check out Mr. Blackwell!

I strongly recommend Katrina King as a flute instructor after taking lessons from her for several years. She not only plays the flute professionally but also obviously loves playing the flute and wants to share that love with her students. Her philosophy is that if a student does not learn a flute technique that it is the teacher's responsibility and she will find a different way to teach the technique until the student learns it. She has high expectations for her students, will push them to grow in their flute playing, while simultaneously working alongside the student to achieve their goals. If I have a question or a problem with regard to a lesson, she will promptly respond by email to my questions. Each lesson I find Katrina fully present, listening for improvements and making encouraging remarks when she hears them, while patiently correcting any mistakes I make and demonstrating how to play that part correctly.

She is very patient and has been excellent about keeping them interested and excited about music and performances at NYSSMA festivals and recitals. The three boys are very different and Nina varies her approach and temperament to inspire, motivate and to develop concentration. She encourages them to not only improve technically, but to understand the meanings and emotions of each piece. I give her my highest recommendation!
