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 is 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.

About Grace
I studied viola at Oberlin Conservatory of Music and moved to Portland three years ago to pursue performance and teaching opportunities. Since then I have performed with Classical Revolution PDX, Cascadia Composers and ARCO PDX and am a member of Macaulay Balkan.

My initial studies were on violin using the Suzuki method, which has greatly influenced my teaching approach. However, I am dedicated to customizing the lesson time and structure to the needs and priorities of my students.

*** Specialties ***
Very few "viola teachers" play viola as their primary instrument. As a full-time violist, I can help you learn how to play this idiosyncratic instrument from my own experience.

Grace is excellent! I feel extremely lucky to have her as my violin teacher. I was playing better after just one lesson with her.

Before I found her, I had been turned down by several other teachers on this site because I wanted to learn how to play the violin without having to learn to read music. When I saw Grace's video, I thought surely she would turn me down too, because she's an even better player than the teachers who had said no. I was very surprised and excited when she agreed to teach me. She saw no problem with giving me lessons without reading, which means that not only is she a better musician than the others, but obviously she's a better and more versatile instructor, too.

Like I said, I feel very fortunate. And, as good as she is, I would have expected to pay a lot more for her. I actually WOULD pay more. She'd be worth it! I've looked at dozens of other teachers on this site .. Trust me, she's the best.

About Philip
Starting at the ripe age of five, I received my musical training in the New York area during my grade school and high school years with the late Persian immigrant and concert pianist Adam Kapuscinski. While my formal training is classical, I played for many years in different bands in the Boston area - top 40 bands, show bands, function (wedding) bands, even a duo. Since moving to Portland in 1985, I have played solo recitals, weddings, Holiday parties and other functions. Recently decided to make myself available to intermediate and advanced students/pianists who want to "kick it up a notch" improve technique, better expression, increase confidence, etc. (No beginners, please)

About Naomi
Hello!

I teach private violin lessons for beginners and intermediate students of all ages. I have been teaching violin for 17 years. I love working with children of all ages and also have many years of experience teaching adult beginners. If you have always wanted to learn, now is the time! No previous experience is necessary-- just a passion for music!

I am thorough and easy to work with. I use a combination of classical techniques and a hint of Suzuki method along with lots and lots of patience, creativity and encouragement.

About me: I am a classically trained violinist with over 20 years of experience and a diverse musical background. I've performed with the University Orchestra and the UT Opera Society at the University of Texas, several string quartets and many bands-- folk, country, rock, experimental, pop and Mariachi t
o name a few. I periodically tour with bands nationally and internationally.

In addition to teaching private lessons, I taught violin in the Mariachi program at a public school in Austin for 3 years and I currently work with students a music school in the Portland area.

For those who live outside of Portland, I also offer video chat lessons via Skype which I've had a great success rate with and is really easy and convenient to use. In town students can also set up occasional video chat lessons anytime they feel like scheduling one (ig rainy days, limited transportation etc.)

My availability is somewhat flexible. Get in touch today to set up a time that works for you!

Kayla is very informative and descriptive about how the body works in producing sound. She not only showed technique but also gave some easy tips on how to improve. Best of all, I finally understand how a raspy sound can occur without damaging the voice! This is a thing I've found difficulty in finding online, in a way that does not damage your vocal cords. All in all, a fun teacher and I recommend her, especially if you like rock/metal as she seems to have a great knowledge of this form of vocals.

About Cameron
Most people think of Songwriting as a flat straight forward activity. Keep it 3 min., stay in the accepted framework, be sure to rhyme in the right places, don't use clichés.., I look at the norm as an opportunity and a challenge. How do you write a great song but push the envelope? My favorite thing is when I take a cliché and stand it on its ear "The early bird catches the worm" can become "He said somethin' 'bout an early bird when he got me out of bed" Why waste a great line like that because someone said don't use a cliché. I will help you explore, be creative and still write a professional style song. Let’s work hard, create and have fun!

Focus of training – Genre’s - Country, Rock, Pop, Singer-Songwriter -
1.) Songwriting – Beginner to Advanced
• Lyric writing & Story telling - Even if you don’t sing or play an instrument

He can work with any level, beginner to adult, especially those interested in playing guitar and singing. You'll really enjoy his easy going teaching style and sense of humor. Cameron will be a great choice for you as a teacher whether you're looking for someone to get you started with songwriting, or if you're looking for some feedback about original songs you've already begun.

About Vanessa
I'm a professional clarinetist with a passion for helping beginning and intermediate clarinetists achieve their music goals. I have a bachelor's in Clarinet Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music plus two years private teaching experience. I work full time in an office in D.C. and teach clarinet part time, because I love it!

I specialize in fostering an autonomous, flexible learning environment, which means I recommend and advise based on each student's unique needs and objectives, rather than control and demand based on a pre-determined course. Especially for younger students, I encourage ownership of goals.

Lessons with me will always be enjoyable, because I believe people learn best when they're free from stress. I'm happy to match the pace at which you want to learn. Whether you're looking for guidance on techniqu
e, equipment, clarinet literature, competitions, general musicianship, or all of the above, I'm excited to share my expertise and love for the clarinet with you!

I welcome questions and would be happy to chat with any interested students or parents.

About Quinton
I was born into a musical family. Both of my parents are successful, international opera soloists; Jake Gardner and Cynthia Clarey, please feel free to google them. I grew up in the performance lifestyle and by age 10 had already seen countless productions of a myriad of classical and opera pieces. My parents are also responsible for the majority of my voice training, which I began to focus on when I started singing in heavy rock bands which required the ability for me to scream and growl for long periods of time without damaging my voice. It is because of this that I have so much faith in my teaching process: I am living proof that you can create all kinds of abrasive sounds with your voice and still be able to sing, even in tandem with this less conventional styles of vocal performance. In the interim I have ended up performing o
peratic roles both in concert and full-on productions. I have performed in various groups in Germany, the UK and on the East Coast, but most notably with Portland heavy metal act "Only Zuul" with whom i wrote and performed for 9 years, performing with groups such as Origin, Cattle Decapitation and Deicide to name a few. In addition to these experiences I have created a vast network within the Portland underground music scene including performers, booking agents, venue managers, photographers, videographers, visual artists and of course fans. My studio also shares space with Bridge City Sessions, a Portland based Audio/Video recording studio and is surrounded by other art, music and music related studios spaces, making for a rich and welcoming artist community.
