Do not be afraid to start as a beginner on the oboe! Double reed playing is quite literally as old as the hills, and one of my specialties is historical double reed instruments. While teaching the Woodwind Methods class at Northwest Nazarene University, I gave modern oboe and bassoon as much attention as flute, clarinet, and saxophone, and the students thrived, never learning to fear the instruments, as is usually the case in university courses of this type. If you love the sound half as much as I do, you may have just found your musical voice, so let's get started!

Oregon native Aage (pronounced like Owen without N) has been teaching woodwinds to students of all ages for thirty years.

A great first lesson. Aage was able to identify my level and chart a course for lessons quickly, drawing on lots of resources and knowledge. I’m just starting clarinet with plenty of saxophone experience, and I think Aage is the right person to guide me.

My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !

Alex was very kind and enthusiastic. Unfortunately we do not have the same kind of accordion so I did not end up continuing lessons with him. The introductory lesson we did have was a lot of fun and I can tell he is very passionate and knowledgeable about technique and music theory.

Hello! I'm Jocelyne and I am very excited to help you or your kids start their musical journey. I have played with different genres the main ones being mariachi, classical, and jazz. With my lessons, I focus a lot on foundation so my students have the building blocks to be successful and problem solve when I am not there. That includes technique, music theory, and musicianship. I am patient and I tailor my lessons for every individual to make sure my student is learning, engaged, and having fun. LET'S GET STARTED!

I've been teaching guitar for over eight years. I've previously been a part of two bands during my formative years and recently have been a session guitar player for four upcoming indie rock, alternative, and R&B/Soul albums.
For children and beginners, I use the Mel Bay publication Children's Guitar Chord Book as well as Hal Leonard's Guitar Method series. I also apply basic music theory that includes learning the Circle of Fifths and basic reading of sheet music.

For intermediate guitar players, I utilize the Gibson's Learn and Master Guitar series to teach Power Chord Formation and Delivery, Fingerpicking, Pentatonic Scales, Reading Tabulature, and tackling some of classic rock and jazz's favorite tunes.

For guitar lessons at my studio, I leverage Guitar Pro to project and display tabs and play-alongs with ease. For in-home lessons, I use the software for select lessons as we begin song selection and play-alongs.

Milton is an excellent instructor! He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. The guitar curriculum he uses is very good. I have prior musical knowledge in piano, and Milton knows when I need to be challenged/need extra work and when I can breeze through exercises on my new instrument. Lessons are really fun and I always look forward to them. Highly recommended!

"She is fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and does a great job of explaining things. She's also very supportive and fun. I've only taken a few lessons so far, but I feel like I've already learned so much and I can't wait to learn more. I'm not that great with computer stuff, so I was kind of uneasy about using online lessons at first, but it's been much easier than I thought and Gfire has been very helpful and understanding about that aspect, too. I wish I'd discovered this option for lessons a long time ago, and I absolutely recommend Gfire!"

"Alex is a great teacher, willing to go at your speed. I can tell he's very qualified to teach any level of student. I'm brand new to DAW software, and I really needed someone to help me work through it from step one. Now I feel like I've got the ideal situation going on, where I work on it on my own during the week, come up with a million questions, and then I can ask him and solve my issues once a week. Very nice guy, more than worth the price of the lessons."

He made it seem easy after a while, even though it was tough to grasp at first. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!"

What Piano Pedals Do + How to Use Them to Sound Like a Pro

Piano pedals are levers which alter the sound of the piano in a variety of different ways. The three types of pedals most pianos have are, from right to left: a sustain pedal, a sostenuto pedal, and a soft pedal. Note: Some digital keyboards may only have one - the sustain pedal - which you can plug into the keyboard. As you get more comfortable at the piano, you may start to wonder about these three pedals at the bottom. What do the pedals on a piano do? You'll find the answers in t …
