"Now that I'm studying with Mike, the efficiency of my practice time is way, way up."

Mike is the first coach who emphasizes "practice the hard parts". So much so that any time a note comes out either not in rhythm, not in pitch, or not a great sound, I have the confidence to stop and repeat the hard part until it's no longer hard. Even when learning to improvise, if the notes I pick on the sax don't match the ones I first heard in my head, I have the confidence to stop and really find those notes that my mind imagined. Eventually I'll be able to hit the ones I intend the first time. He also advocates to always know the purpose of any practicing you're doing---there's no more aimless noodling. Even when I'm jamming, there's a specific goal in mind.

The second thing I really get from Mike is that he expects me to know what notes I'm playing and what role they fill in the key. Formerly my method of improvising was to hunt and peck, occasionally hitting notes outside the key and finding a way to "work them back in". But now, if I'm riffing on the note F in the key of B-flat, Mike wants me to know that that's the 5 of the key. And to also know where the 3 and 7 are---like a home base where you know it's safe to play.

We are so lucky to have found Michael! Before we started with him in February, my son played Ode to Joy, now he's practicing jazz and having fun while practicing. Michael has awesome enthusiasm, and a great foundation in both performance and theory. He shows care for the student and is always supportive. I completely recommend him for any skill level!

Elisa B.

Oregon City, OR

About Elisa

Violin Teacher's Certificate - Sibelius Academy, Finland
Suzuki Teacher Training - Marylhurst University, OR

Classical and Suzuki options - starting Suzuki students as early as 3 yrs old. Teaching Suzuki Books 1-11.
Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels
I am using classical method books including Kayser, Wohlfart, Kreutzer, Mazas, Dont and Paganini Caprices with students looking for more rigorous studies and more advanced skills.
Keeping music and technique in balance - Learn how to enjoy performing - Find your own highest potential - Fall in love with music

*** Lesson Detail
s ***
I am friendly and like to inspire my students to find their own best potential. Suitable challenges are fun and needed to keep the personal progress going on. "No suffering in my studio!" means that the process of learning needs to be enjoyable but at the same time I am asking the students to give their best effort. Setting frequent goals in form of group classes and recitals keeps us in full sail and teach us to enjoy the act of playing both alone and in front of friendly audience.
I teach both classical and Suzuki methods. I like to keep my students musically well fed and encourage exploring music reading and music theory next to practical skills. I stir my students toward high standard personal level in their studies, an ingredient from Finnish cultural climate.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method and classical method, fiddling, beginning jazz, improvising

Karen was a wonderful teacher to my 6 year old! She was very calm, attentive and flexible with my daughter's learning needs. She was able to start my daughter off on the right foot with love of piano, having her play short songs and duets, learn notes and reading music. We moved but are grateful to have had her as a teacher.

We are so happy with the lessons we've received from Karen! My son is 15 and is on the Autistic spectrum, so finding someone who is patient and willing to teach a student who is not always clear with his communication could have been a real challenge. Karen has been a wonderful instructor and my son looks forward to every lesson he gets with her. His progress has been impressive and we are grateful that Karen has helped to foster the love for piano that he has now.

Two thumbs up for Duncan!

I was pretty nervous about taking one on one drum lessons. Duncan assured me it would be fun, and it is! I like how he stretches my comfort zone enough to keep me interested and excited, but not so much that I get frustrated. Two thumbs up:)

Nick D.

Tualatin, OR

About Nick

***About Me***
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, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music in Film Scoring. While at Berklee, I studied with some of the most acclaimed musicians in the country, studying jazz, arranging, contemporary composition, music production, songwriting and more. After graduating I moved to Los Angeles, where I worked on multiple feature films as a composer's assistant, copyist, music editor and music supervisor. After some time in LA, I decided to relocate to Portland and enroll in Berklee's online Masters Certificate in Music Business and Technology, which I completed in 2013.

Currently, I'm an active composer for film, Television and video games. Though you won't see me performing on stage as often, I'm very often performing and recording myself and other performers in my home studio!

Music can be a great hobby or a path to a fulfilling career - either way, it's a lot of fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach students of all ages! I'm very easy-going, and I'm more than happy to teach what the students want to learn at their own pace - after all, we're here to learn and have FUN!
That being said, I do expect some level of practicing or studying. It's all part of the gig!

During our first lesson, we'll go over what the student's goals are and what styles of music the student is interested in. I use a combination of books, listening, and custom assignments tailored to the student's specific needs.

In the first 3-6 months:

Beginners can expect to have basic knowledge of the instrument and technique, and begin looking at songs incorporate techniques addressed in our lessons.

Intermediate students can expect to address any problematic areas in their technique and begin looking at stretching their understanding of theory and technique into new areas.

I now offer optional lesson "report cards" to students and parents who would like to see how our lessons are progressing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In-Studio lessons take place in a home studio office, complete with full size electric piano, recording equipment and plenty of room for parents to sit in on the lessons! Parking is plentiful for most of the day.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instrument and copy of lesson material including notes and books. I can provide lesson material while students wait to purchase their own.

*** Specialties ***
Basic to Intermediate Piano.
Basic to Advanced Guitar
Advanced Music Theory and Orchestration.
Genres include Contemporary Styles (Pop, Blues, Country, Funk, Rock) Jazz, and Classical

Nick is a wonderful piano teacher for our daughter. My husband and I have seen a vast improvement in the quality of her piano skills in comparison to her lessons with her previous teacher. We are equally impressed with how Nick keeps our daughter engaged in the lesson and his patience as she learns new material and techniques. Nick has also been very flexible with our schedule as we have unfortunately had to cancel and reschedule more than once-to his credit he has always been understanding. We highly recommend him!

Nick has been an excellent and informative teacher. I'm an older student with a hectic schedule, and he has been more than accommodating. Nick strives to really connect with his students and tailors the experience to their mindset and feelings. I feel stronger as a piano player after every lesson, which is the result I believe most people are looking for.
