Dennis has been in the music scene for the last 25+ years.
Starting piano at the age of 9, he didn't know that piano would become a fixture through the years. Dennis has a classical training background which then led him to other styles of influence such as Jazz, Gospel, & Blues genres.

He holds a B.A. in Music from Portland Bible College and as a professional pianist he has taken on other musical roles; such as composition, arranging, and producer on many recording projects.

Dennis has something to offer to all that want to learn how to play the piano. Whether it's learning for fun, or pursuing piano passionately; his method of teaching is one that will stick with you.

"Playing piano is a lifetime experience; whether you do it professionally or for your own enjoyment, you will always learn something new. My hope is to pass along what I've learned to every student that I have the opportunity to teach."

I have been teaching saxophone for nearly thirty years, and offer a different approach to the instrument. While building strong technique and tone in your band and solo music, we will explore how the saxophone is used in music from around the world, including traditions that pre-date the saxophone itself by many centuries! While learning the basics of music theory, I also encourage playing by ear, and unleashing curiosity and creativity.

Brandt P.
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.

Kind, patient and obviously knowledgeable.
Gregory R.
Very personable, yet business like. An extremely encouraging teacher which would be important for younger students.

I needed help with a college audition and had a close deadline. Shirley was able to help me prepare and feel confident about my work. She also told me what to expect when going into the audition so I would not be nervous.

Shirley was an exceptional instructor that gave in-depth feedback and coaching to help elevate my performance as an actor. She worked tirelessly to help elevate my performance as well as other cast mates. I look forward to working with her again.
Belinda
Shirley is amazing! She walked me through the audition process step by step. I knew what to expect, and how to conduct myself in the audition. Mostly though she was encouraging of me and my talent after our lesson I felt so empowered to keep going, and I got the job.

Mary Elizabeth has been a great help in preparing me for college auditions! She helped me choose audition material that was right for me and helped not only with vocal technique but with acting choices and my overall performance. I felt more than prepared when it came time to film prescreens and audition. I have definitely become a better singer because of my lessons with Mary-Elizabeth, and I would not have done as well at my auditions without her.

Great singing teacher! Helped my voice to become stronger and taught me how to sing without straining my voice.

My daughter loves Mary Elizabeth! She feels like she is learning a lot and I appreciate how flexible she is with scheduling!

"My Favorite Piano Teacher!

Chris is an unbelievable piano teacher! He always makes sure we are working on something that I enjoy which keeps me motivated. He is very patient (which is great since I'm kind of a slow learner!) and is always willing to go over things as many times as I need.

Chris also has such a great passion for his music so a lot of the times my absolute favorite part of our lesson is when we are finished and I ask him to play me some of his own newly composed songs!"

Drum Kit Basics: Introduction to Types of Drums

Thinking about learning how to play the drums? As with any new musician, getting to know your instrument is essential to your progress and success. For drummers in particular, it’s not just one instrument - it’s a whole set! The typical five-piece drum kit is the most traditional, although there are many variations to it that more advanced players can create.
