Really great start! I look forward to many fun, valuable, and informative lessons under David's instruction.
Allie
David is not only a delightful person, he's also an excellent piano teacher. I'm a piano teacher myself yet I needed some help with improvisation--my weakest link. He patiently walked me through adding chords and harmony to a melody. I learned a lot of new ideas, such as leaving out the emotive third interval...that's better utilized in the right hand. He demonstrated how to take a familiar classical piece, namely Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca, and play it completely by ear. His musicianship is lovely and he is patient and thorough in his explanations. His knowledge of music theory is complete and sound. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to start or continue music lessons. He is truly passionate about music and his profession.
Andrew
What a great teacher! He was so patient and understanding and really took his time to help me with what I needed. I am in school for audio enginnering and was not getting the help from my instructors that I needed and he came through and made it all way easy to understand and was super chill to work with. I highly recommend him for anything musical that you might need to know and will definatley will be working with him again! Thanks you so much David!

"My daughter started taking online signing lessons with Asuka a few weeks ago and we have seen dramatic improvements in her voice. Asuka was able to guide my daughter away from singing in a way that would potentially damage her voice towards a strong technique with a beautiful tone. Her voice is now well supported and getting better every week. My daughter really adores Asuka as she is really easy to get along with and is great with kids."

I would pick songs and she would help break them down and understand the sentence structure, and how to use the physicality of my body, internally and externally, to produce the sound I am trying to get. She has helped bring me to the next level for singing as a hobby. I would use Sara if you have an idea of what you want to do so she can help you take it to the next level and learn to use your body and voice in a new way."

Learning to Sing in Portland

By Julia V. - Portland Singing Teacher

Portland is a unique city with its own distinctive character. The city is full of people who love the performing arts, and there is something for everyone to enjoy! If you’re considering taking singing lessons in Portland, you’re in luck! We can offer opportunities in every genre from new age to rock, and a whole song-loving community to support it all!

Students taking singing lessons in Portland are hoping to support their chosen activities whether in church choir, high school groups and musicals, or auditioning for the yearly PATA auditions. PATA stands for Portland Area Theatre Alliance which holds yearly auditions where area performers can be seen by up to 60 area companies. Performers have a choice of doing 2 songs, 2 monologues or 1 of each. Students and teachers can join PATA and it is a great resource for auditions and offering workshops. http://www.portlandtheatre.com/general-auditions.html

My students will often ask me which local choirs they should sing in. Your teacher can help to steer you in the right direction, but I always say it depends on each student’s sight reading and vocal skills. The PDX choral calendar lists 22 auditioned choirs as well as many more non-auditioned youth and professional choirs. https://sites.google.com/site/pdxchoralcalendar/list-of-choirs

Students may want to take singing lessons in Portland to gain entry to a local community college or University music program. PSU has a high-quality music program and are frequently putting on opera productions and providing many performance outlets. Check out their online calendar and student recital schedule. http://music.pdx.edu/calendar/

Mt. Hood Community College and others smaller campuses also have good programs for inspiring students to get out into the world of music and begin performing or teaching.

You know you have a good vocal technique if you can perform in several different styles. The important thing is to find a teacher or group where you feel comfortable and joyful! Joy is an underrated aspect of singing technique that makes everything easier.

While you’re taking singing lessons in Portland, you can enjoy lots of live music in every genre! Kells Irish Pub features traditional Irish music - Every Sunday at 7PM. Everyone is welcome! http://www.kellsportland.com/music/

The many different jazz groups can be found at the Jazz Society of Oregon. http://www.jsojazzscene.org/monthlyclubinfo.htm. To hear some of great jazz music live, check out Tony Starlight! There’s always a fun show and beautiful singers with live music. http://www.tonystarlight.com/events/upcoming-shows/

Finally, give Portland Opera a try. Every year they have young artists trying out for new roles. Portland Opera productions take place at Keller Auditorium and the Newmark Theatre with beautiful sets and costumes. Opera scenes are even performed outside during the summer in downtown Portland. http://www.portlandopera.org/

When you’re out around town and find a style or song you enjoy, jot down the title or keep the performance’s program. Portland Music Company is a local, independent music store where you can pick up the sheet music for some of your favorite pieces. http://www.portlandmusiccompany.com/

Bring your newly acquired music to your voice teacher and say “I’d like to be able to sing this!” You and your teacher will enjoy having a goal and building the skills to get you there.

How to Sing Rock | Improving Your Skills & Finding Inspiration

When it comes to learning how to sing rock music, what do you need to know? Find out in this article by Saint Augustine, FL teacher Heather L... Rock singers are not exactly known for having impeccable technique or healthy vocal habits. So it might seem strange that a classically trained singer and professional voice teacher has anything to say about singing rock music, but I do. First, I believe that it's wrong to dismiss rock singers as undisciplined slackers with little interest in …
