Suzan G.

Portland, OR

About Suzan

I started learning piano as a child, but it was in high school that I realized I really wanted to pursue playing keyboards, because it allowed me a way to express myself. I was hooked. Later on I attended Mt. Hood Community College, played keyboards and sang in choirs and vocal jazz. After graduating on the President's List with an Associates Degree in Special Studies Music, I directed the college Gospel Ensemble for two years before working full-time at a large local church, where I was a Music Director, Worship Leader, and keyboard player. In addition to vocal and keyboard work, I enjoyed di
recting large and small choirs and ensembles, band directing, orchestra conducting, and arranging many styles of music. It is exciting to experience what can happen when people work together musically--the whole becomes even greater than the sum of the parts!

I've been teaching piano for 20+ years now, and I love partnering with students to help them grow musically and realize their dreams. Some of my students have gone on to be professionals or teachers, and some are playing the music they love with their friends. Others are playing in their churches or in bands, and some play simply for personal enjoyment.

If we get the opportunity to work together, you (or your child) will discover that I am patient and encouraging. My desire is to bring your musical goals into focus through education and creative participation.

What is your dream? Playing classical, rock, playing in a band, writing your own music? I'd love to help you realize that dream!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe piano instruction should be fun and casual, yet challenging and inspiring. In our lessons, you'll learn proper technique, sight-reading, improvising, and the music theory behind it. I utilize popular piano methods and contribute additional resources, and I design lessons to help you reach your music goals, whether your dream is to play with others, write your own music, or play your favorites for personal enjoyment. You'll explore many music genres, from classical to rock to jazz, including a large dose of your preferred styles. If you play an electronic keyboard, we'll incorporate features of your instrument to increase your rhythm and song-writing skills. Aspiring songwriters can learn skills like chart writing and computer notation. You'll learn how technology--even your smart phone--can help!

The student is responsible to purchase required books--usually lesson and theory, and occasionally a recital book. These usually cost between 5 and 7 dollars each and can be purchased locally. Bring lined paper with you for your lesson notes. I'll supply staff paper, music and any additional lesson materials, as needed. I will encourage you to purchase a metronome (the musician's friend) if you do not have an instrument with rhythms or metronome.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach both at students' homes (on your instrument) or at my home, where I have a Yamaha CP70 electric grand piano. The lessons are in the front living room, where seating is available and parents are welcome to observe the lesson. I have a laptop with Sibelius Notation and YouTube at the ready, as well as a mic, mixer and speakers, should they be needed. There may even be a studio cat nearby to inspire you!

*** Travel Equipment ***
If lessons are at your home, it is important that you have a practice instrument, which we will use in our lessons. If you need to purchase a piano or are exploring the world of electronic keyboards, I can help you with the many choices available and recommend instruments in your price range. I can also help you become familiar with your keyboard and those features that will be useful to you.

*** Specialties ***
For individual lessons, I prefer using the Alfred Method (beginning through intermediate), and have also used the Bastien method, and some others. I teach both sight-reading and/or improvisational skills, along with musical theory, according to the student's needs and goals. I'm comfortable in multiple styles (classical, pop, rock, folk, some jazz and blues).

A perfect fit for our daughter! She felt right at home with Suzan. She was so excited to share what she had learned with the rest of us. I feel this has sparked an ongoing interest in music. Suzan is personable, friendly and warm. Making us feel comfortable from our first contact. We couldn't be more pleased to know our 9 year old daughter is in such caring hands.

Chad H.

Portland, OR

About Chad

I have taken piano lessons for the past 17 years and have been teaching for the last 5. While working on my Bachelor of Arts in Music at Willamette University, I decided to give piano lessons during the summer and found it to be an exciting way to connect with new people of all ages, give them a skill that they can use for the rest of their life, and grow as a pianist myself. Now that I have graduated, I am focusing on teaching more full time, and could not be more thrilled about it. Now giving Skype lessons!

*** Lesson Details ***
Having had the experience of putting in a lot of practice dur
ing the week, only to be too tense and nervous during my lesson to play well, I try to make my lessons a place where students can feel calm and relaxed. I do this by implementing humor into the lessons, and letting students know that it's not the end of the world if they're hitting a few wrong notes. At the same time, it is important for students to make progress. If a student is not making progress from week to week, it means that they are either playing something too difficult or are not practicing enough. Either way, it is my responsibility to remedy the situation.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have a piano. While I will not pay for their lesson books, I can buy the book for them as long as I am reimbursed.

*** Specialties ***
I incorporate some Alexander technique into my teaching. I've found that a higher body awareness helps people to relax and feel more comfortable. I am most comfortable teaching classical music.

We are from Melbourne, Australia, and came to Texas not too long ago. Our 12 year old son had us ship his Kurzweil Piano to Texas, wanting to continue with his piano lessons. He then assigned us with the daunting task of finding a teacher just like Joel, his young piano teacher from Melbourne!

Over the months we tried to find him a piano teacher "just like Joel", but it was like finding a needle in a haystack. We tried every avenue possible, but there was no luck. That was when I found TakeLessons on the web, and carefully going through the profiles finally Chad caught my attention. However, he was in Oregon and we were not sure how online lessons would work with our son, as he has only had face-to-face lessons in the comfort of his home. Although skeptical about online learning, we decided to give Chad a try. It has been almost two months now since Nik started lessons with Chad, and we are not only impressed with Chad's teaching style, we are also very pleased with his courteous and calm attitude. We can only hope that our son would want to continue his lessons with Chad for a long time and not only improve his talent but also enjoy piano music. We consider our son to be very fortunate that he found Chad, who I am sure is "just like Joel" if not even better!

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

I received my Bachelor and Master degrees in Musical Theatre Vocal Performance and then relocated to New York City to pursue a successful career in the Performing Arts.

I specialize in helping students fix existing vocal issues and expanding their vocal range and flexibility.
My goal is to instill passion for the performing arts in each of my students and to inspire them to be the healthiest singers and best storytellers for their preferred genre. I do this by promoting a fun, safe and positive learning environment in my studio.

Hayley worked for me as an Individual Voice instructor at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York City. Her students progressed rapidly, absolutely loved her, and gave her the highest rankings. Her knowledge of vocal technique and classical and musical theatre repertoire are extensive and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to strengthen their vocal technique and explore new repertoire.

Hayley has such a wide range of profound technic and knowledge in so many different styles of singing (From Opera, classical musicals to contemporary musical theatre etc.) that will absolutely help you get to the finest versatility of your vocal abilities as possible. Not to mention with her great phonetic skills, which if you are international student like me, you could get a lot of help from performing in Standard American accent. Also feedback on acting skills while singing if you sing and act as well :) She is a whole package and I feel so grateful to have had her as my individual voice teacher for she has got me so far in such short amount of time in terms of technique.

I had the pleasure of working with Hayley during our contract a board the Disney Dream! As our vocal captain, I turned to her to help me maintain and improve my technique. She was even able to help me through a cold that wreaked havoc on my vocal cords. Not only did she remind me of proper technique, but she coached me gently back to good and healthy sound production after my sickness.
