Joel J.

Beaverton, OR

About Joel

Joel J. took his first guitar lesson in September 1980. A lifelong student and teacher of guitar and improvisation, Joel began playing in bands at age 14. Seeking a higher awareness of guitar, he left school at U-Michigan to study at Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA. While there, he received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 1997 he received his B.M.S. in Professional Music with a concentration in Private Instruction and Studio Arranging from Berklee. No stranger to the industry, Joel has recorded 3 CD's with rock bands Michigan and Color Phobos as primar
y composer and lead guitarist. Joel is former owner of The Great Hall Restaurant and Music Room where raw live performances occurred every night. He currently plays with Portland area blues-rock band The Fabulous Badcats, and co-hosts an open jam every week in SE Portland. Embark upon a discovery of music born in the fires of your own passion as Joel will lead you through a course of study based entirely upon your goals and desires for your relationship with the guitar. with a vivid memory of studying guitar as an eight year old, Joel teaches all ages with patience and understanding.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with Joel are like Choose Your Own Adventure stories. The curriculum is based on the Performance programs of Berklee College and Musician's Institute, with supplements by Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, and including the music of YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST. We will navigate through a rigorous study of the instrument, including metronome study, sight-reading and notation, ear training and everything else. But once we cover the basics, the course will take the direction of your interests and what is fueling your fire. Keeping true to what motivates you will keep the lessons interesting even when the commitment becomes difficult..and it will..but as you may already know, nothing worth having is easily achieved. Come take a deep look at the most popular and versatile instrument of the modern age, and master your own style of guitar playing with a teacher whose own commitment to music education is absolute.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio room in private home- with piano, electric and acoustic guitars and equipment, on-screen learning; chairs, piano bench, room for parents to observe lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***

We are very much enjoying the guitar learning experience with Joel. I applaud the fact that he is not only teaching the mechanics of playing the guitar, but some theory to back up the practices being taught. Learning to read music is a nice benefit also. Joel is very patient with my 10-year old Allison and she is enjoying his teaching style. He's a very easy person to talk with and ask questions to.

Joel was great. He gave me tons of exercises to practice so I never ran out of stuff to do. He is very knowledgeable about music and really understands the theory and incorporates it into his lessons. Overall great experience.

Tim B.

Newberg, OR

About Tim

I love to help anyone who has been told they're not able to play guitar, has quit out of frustration, or been told they're too old or too young to play.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is customized to your learning style and different for everyone depending on what you want to learn. Most of my students like to learn from scratch which would include the following:
In the first 3 lessons you will learn basic guitar fundamentals, basic 1-4-5 song progressions (the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, how to str
um, mute, & play notes on the guitar.

We can play as a band too. When you are ready, I love to bring out the drum or backing tracks to your favorite artists songs while you play guitar and I play what your not, giving you the feel of a live group situation that can make learning at your lesson more fun.

Genres include Acoustic, Blues, Country, R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Rock, Pop and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My Line 6 Spider Jam will take any wave file and speed up or slow down the tempo and lower or higher the key to your preference.

I've had my first class with Tim and he was very detailed and patient. He went over the basics of the guitar with me and made sure I was clear every step of the way. Good experience so far. Looking forward to the next lessons.

Before the lesson today I was having anxiety and performance issues, and Tim really encouraged me and cut right through the problem. He knew exactly how to handle it without making me feel inferior and giving me the confidence to overcome it. Tim is very casual and at the same time professional bringing you to a place of relaxation and enjoying the journey, not just the destination. I have been playing for many years but still learning the basics that I never learned, and although it could be frustrating to go back, he has made it rewarding and simple.

Joannah B.

Forest Grove, OR

About Joannah

Music has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. In the evenings after listening to my mother teach piano lessons to a studio full of students, I would climb into her lap and beg her to teach me to play the piano. I eagerly soaked up everything that she taught me, enthralled by this incredible language of music.

I continued studying piano with my mom all the way through high school, adding much-anticipated voice lessons in high school as well. We came from such a small town that we had to travel two hours round trip for my weekly voice lessons.

As an under
graduate student at Willamette University in Oregon, I launched into further piano and voice studies earning a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. I began teaching seriously in the spring of 2009 as a member of NATS, and continued as an adjunct faculty voice instructor at Willamette University for two years. I also played piano for the Opera Workshop class as we prepared for two full length operatic productions: Our Town by Ned Rorem, and Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck.

I have since completed a Master of Music in Voice Performance at The Boston Conservatory where I specialized in Vocal Pedagogy and Classical Vocal Performance, and continue teaching private voice and piano lessons in Cambridge to students of all ages.

I seek to create a nurturing, encouraging and appropriately challenging environment for my students. I want to help each student deepen their curiosity and love for music while simultaneously empowering and equipping them with skills to achieve their musical goals.

I started taking lessons with Joannah after a 10-year hiatus from playing the piano. Joannah made me feel right back at home behind the keys! She took the time to understand my goals and my musical preferences and combined the two to put together an exciting yet reasonable lesson plan for me each week. She was also flexible with my busy work schedule, and had no problem changing or canceling a lesson if something came up. I highly recommend Joannah as a musical instructor for folks of all ages--she is wonderful!

I've only just started taking lessons with Johannah yet she's been able to help me explore my voice and part with some bad habits. She is all about using the whole body to produce a free and healthy sound. She is energetic, non-judgmental and encouraging. I look forward to continuing to learn from her.

Beaverton, OR

About Charity

The body is an incredible instrument that we use to speak, to rock out, walk, boogie, express, signify and croon. The body can captivate audiences or communicate to a friend. A person can personally and professionally take flight, gaining confidence through becoming familiar with themselves, their bodies and their artistry.

Charity Marchandt ran away with both opera and the circus.Their vocal skill continues to take them on the jazz, theater and classical stages like Portland Opera and Opera Theater Oregon.

Combining both disciplines of music and cirque is one of their favorite thing
s.They are a previous resident artist and troupe liaison of Sky Circus, a continuing guest member with Wanderlust Circus, Caravan of Glam and instructor at Echo Theater
