Geoff A.

Hillsboro, OR

For ages 8 and up, students will learn to play through easy songs and exercises. Sight reading, note recognition and good playing technique are also taught to maximize progress into more difficult pieces.

After the basics are established, we will then move toward the kind of music the student is most interested in learning to play, whether classical or contemporary in nature.

Lessons proceed at a easy pace, and moved forward based on the student's understanding. No artificial pace is employed to "push" progress forward beyond the student's ability to address and learn.

Feel free to ask questions before signing up for lessons.

Please note: For children under 8 years old, you will need to contact me prior to scheduling lessons (via the "Ask A Question" feature) to discuss their particular needs and readiness to begin this regimen.

About Geoff

I am a professional musician with a career spanning 40 years (touring and studio work), and 30 years teaching music.

What do you want to learn? How far you go is up to you!

*** Lesson Details ***
BEGINNING students start with the fundamentals, what you must know in order to begin playing songs, all the right ingredients to create a solid foundation. You will be encouraged to study and to venture into the unknown, using what you're learning as a springboard to discover new things.

INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED players will be assessed on knowledge and abilities; areas of struggle and what i
s desired to be learned. Within a couple weeks, you will reap the benefits with new ideas bubbling to the surface moving you closer to your goals, with emphasis that short term goals are important as well.

Everyone learns at a different pace. But with patience and persistence, if you do the work, there will be results that can be measured, and you will achieve success!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier for guitar and bass students, and have a piano for piano students.

*** Specialties ***
Having played many styles over the years, I am able to play in most of the popular forms. All music is based on the same fundamental things. It's how they are used that defines a given style.

Geoff takes the time to make sure his students are really learning how to develop good habits when playing guitar and takes care to spend as much time as it takes to solidify different techniques. He cares that his students are actually learning and doesn't cut corners, making sure things are easy to understand. He's patient, friendly, and skillful, and each lesson is something to look forward to.

Barbara D.

Portland, OR

I have been teaching individual piano lessons for 15 years. The foundation of my curriculum is based on materials by Alfred , Faber and Hanon . A wide variety of supplemental materials supporting student interests are also used. My instructional approach focuses on helping students develop an understanding of music theory, technique and performance. I have experience working with students of all ages and all levels . I look forward to meeting you !

About Barbara

I am delighted to be a part of the TakeLessons team here in Portland. I have recently retired from a career in elementary education employed as a visual arts instructor. In addition to my public school career I have also given private piano lessons for the last thirteen years. I graduated from the University of Idaho in 1991 with a bachelors degree in education with a minor in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I have been classically trained, my goal is to provide a strong background in music theory, technique, and performance, which will allow all students to successfully pursue inte
rests in all genres of music. Creating individualized instruction for each student is an important means of nurturing a successful and motivated pianist at every level. I use a broad range of materials based on student interest and abilities with a core curriculum built upon Hanon, Alfred, and Faber and Faber method books. I look forward to the opportunity to be part of your many successes in the world of piano music.

About Peter

I'm a multi-instrumentalist from the Northwest with lots of love for teaching people to groove. I got my bachelor's degree 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 drums, a bass, woodwinds, FULL DRUM SET!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can travel with a sax, flute, guitar, electric bass, and a didgeridoo....

*** Specialties ***
I'm a jazz musician! But I listen to and perform all styles of music. I have written string quartets, been the front man for a funk band, and recorded every style of music under the sun. I can teach Bach and the Beatles and explain how/ and why they intersect and are similar musically.

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano
Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha
