Each lesson is tailored to fit each individual student. We will cover genres of music that's of interest to you, using music you enjoy most so learning the instrument will be fun. Even if you have experience playing acoustic guitar, I will be able to show you alternative strum patterns, useful techniques, tricks and short-cuts to make playing easier. I have a blast teaching and my students have fun learning!

Lola is a professional at what she does. From the moment I walked into my first lesson, I could tell she was very knowledgeable about music. Beyond music, she is a very kind and welcoming woman who is patient and understanding. She talks with you and really cares about what you're saying. She is a great teacher for anyone of all levels of experience in music and I recommend her for everyone.

Marvin has been a wonderful instructor. Patient yet sets high expectations for us, which pushes us to meet those expectations. In just a few lessons I can already see a lot of improvement. He's professional and reliable, and a pleasure to work with. We've very much enjoyed taking lessons with him.

Jill
Derek is a fantastic guitar teacher. His approach to teaching is so different than other instructors I've worked with in that he really caters to the needs of his students and adjusts his teaching style accordingly. I've seen so much growth in my own playing. Definitely the best guitar teacher ever.
Steven
Highly recommend! I initially only began with the idea of taking 1 month of lessons and now I'm in my 3rd month! Derek caters the lessons to meet my needs- I'm a tactile learner, and he approaches teaching guitar to me from that standpoint. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.
Todd
I had been playing for about 4 years and couldn't really get past a certain point with my guitar skills. I had kinda hit one plateau after another. Derek took my guitar playing to another level. The way he explains the guitar and music is simple but pretty eye opening.

If you're in Bend, I would highly recommend Derek for guitar lessons.

Teaching ukulele since 2013. Currently using the James Hills Ukulele in the Classroom method books. Each student I teach I hope to train them well enough to be able to play solo or accompaniment ukulele within a year of learning. It can be done! I can’t wait to teach you!

About Coleton

Hi! My name is Coleton. I've been playing ocarina and ukulele since 2012 and ever since then I have loved it! Though they are both fairly simple instruments, they are able to do much more than you may imagine. My hope is that you'll have that same enthusiasm toward music. I play a barrage of in

Instruction also includes how to play correctly so as not to develop negative playing habits. In the case that you have developed negative playing habits, how to correct them.

Emphasis is also placed on proper warm up techniques, stretching exercises, holding the sticks correctly, posture, plus drum kit "throne" seat placement, and correct stance, if playing concert snare or percussion. Independence is also developed through simple easy to grasp exercises. In addition, drum exercises are individually tailored to the particular needs of each student.

Chuck has also developed a special ear training method utilizing CD and MP3 technology. This method reduces the amount of time it normally takes to develop good listening skills. These listening skills decrease the time that it takes to learn new songs, and learn how to interact with other musicians.

About Chuck

This is Chuck Reichel the drum instructor at Sound Picture Recording. I've been doing studio recording sessions and also playing live performances covering most styles of music for many years. I myself have studied drums in the past under several top notch drummers. I enjoy seeing my students exc

Chuck is a very talented and experienced teacher, he makes the classes relax , entretained and fun. He is very insightful and detects my kid strength and weakness. I have seen my kid improving in his drum skill that eventually would take him to the next level.

Chuck is a fantastic teacher! He is really patient but also pushes me to go beyond what I think I can do. He is very systematic and fundamental, which has given me a great foundation in my rhythm skills.

"I think my friends are tired of hearing me talk about how much I love my guitar lessons with Indigo. She is patient and kind and has a deep knowledge of the guitar and of music in general. I always come away from our lessons feeling like I have moved forward in my learning and inspired to practice. I am a beginner in my mid thirties but I think Indigo would be a great teacher for all ages and skill levels. If you are thinking about taking guitar lessons your teacher should be Indigo, I can't recommend her more!"

"I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin."
