Rhythm guitar, picking patterns and reading notes on the guitar are all taught.

About Kathryn

Kathy believes that variety is the spice of not only life, but also music. Raised singing folk music with a musical family (think accordions, guitars and lots of vocal harmonies), she learned guitar and piano at an early age, but began singing even earlier. Her quest to give the world the bes

Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!
Rupesh G.
I have two daughters who took piano and voice lessons with Kathy for more than 6 years. Kathy is a very positive person who is passionate about music, and this resulted in lessons that were uplifting and enjoyable. Looking back on their time with Kathy, it is amazing that not once in 6 years did I feel that she was snappy or short or just going through the motions. Kathy had a positive impact on my children and their love of music, and I highly recommend her as an instructor.
Jennifer M.
Kathy is awesome - totally patient, encouraging, fun to play with, and keeps you on track to improve your skill/complexity level with each lesson.

Awesome. Was nervous about being really rusty from a long layoff, but Justin was easy-going and unassuming. Thank you!

Justin is a great guitar teacher to my 10 year old son. He has shown patience with a child that has a hard time focusing. He has taught him to both read and write music. My son gets excited for lessons now. We are very pleased with him and can highly recommend him to others with children.

If you love All Rock, Blues, All Finger Styles, Soloing Electric and acoustic I am your man. These are the styles I do best and have fun while doing it. And of course classical if you want to go there...All while doing the songs YOU LOVE right away..I want you to have fun and while you do get musical knowledge to you. I believe the most fundamental place to begin is with theory. Through a creative, relaxed and patient environment I introduce students to the rudiments of music on 2 simple pages.
Theory helps you to understand song writing, ear training,and how to build chords and scales. I try to get you to hear the music so you can improvise better and also take songs and solos off CD's yourself, therefor becoming more self reliant to teach yourself in the future. My students bring in the songs they like and by strengthening their ears and learning to apply theory points, I show them how they can figure out the song by ear the exact way it was written and played by the ...

I would recommend Albert for anyone looking to give guitar a try. I am 40 and had ZERO musical background, and always wanted to play guitar. I was attracted to the way a guitar would light up a room. Albert is the perfect guide to help unlock the mysteries of the guitar. Albert has created an extremely positive learning environment for me both during a lesson and at home. I feel like I take home another piece of the puzzle after each lesson.

Albert as a teacher.
The most notable quality to me is that he truly wants to see you learn guitar and enjoy playing. His attention to detail is great and is completely engaged in the lesson. He introduces music theory in just the right dose, and then shows you how it applies to what and how you are playing. He makes theory fun leaving you excited to unlock the next level. His depth of music knowledge is impressive, and an incredible asset for his students. Albert has a bright positive energy and I always look forward to my lessons with him. Alberts house is at the end of a quiet road across from the water and a marina. His Jam space is very Zen and his lovely wife is one of the nicest people I have ever met. Good vibes for sure. Sometimes I feel like I just left a yoga class lol. Albert is flexible with lesson times and very accommadating. I play the guitar every day and enjoy every moment of it. I have two guitars now (acoustic and electric) I am having fun learning and look forward to my next lesson. If your looking for a guitar guru Albert is a home run!
Chuck
I agree with everything everyone else says about Albert so I don't want to repeat. I started with him when I retired (bucket list litem) and Albert is very patient and helpful ( as well as accommodating my uneven scheduling). You get into songs you like right away and learn technique within the songs as you go. He'll give you as much theory as you want. Shortly after you start with Albert you'll feel like your learning/ playing with a friend... I highly recommend him!
Jaye
The reason Albert is the best instructor ever is that he is really gifted at his craft and at teaching. So many people can do one or the other. Albert makes it fun and instills a desire to practice, and balances theory/performance goals. He is college educated in music and will teach the fundamentals-having said that, he would make a great teacher for the advanced player as well.

Finally, he is the most patient teacher I know, a plus for you and/or your child. I would be pleased to talk personally to anyone considering Albert for lessons.

Sara possesses all of the qualities I admire in an excellent music teacher: musicianship, experience, patience, encouragement, gentle correction, clear communication, and dedication. Additionally, she is amazingly kind and selfless and an all around pleasant person to interact with and learn from. It is clear that she loves music and her students and is dedicated to helping them develop their abilities and confidence.

Take guitar lessons from a professional touring and studio guitarist.

Hi, I'm Derek. I have a degree in classical guitar. I've taught guitar for over 14 years. I've played guitar for over 80 bands or artists, 28 of whom are major-label artists, including Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and Jake Owen to name a few. I've had the honor of living my dream. I now live in Bend, Oregon and perform with Precious Byrd. I'm offering guitar lessons to students in Bend and Redmond, Oregon and also online via Skype. I would be honored to teach you what I've learned over a lifetime of being a student myself and of real-life experience with the guitar.

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.

"What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!"
