Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Start off on the right track with a patient and passionate teacher!
I grew up steeped in music, with a music studio in the basement, playing guitar and singing with my family since I could walk. Took piano lessons at 10, picked up the guitar and singing at age 16 and have continued to expand upon my performing and recording knowledge since. I've has taught in esteemed music schools across the Portland, OR metro area, and studied guitar, voice, piano, and music theory at the college level and am starting a music therapy degree at Pacific University in the fall of 2021. I have been teaching music since 2017.

I enjoy being a warm and supportive coach for others. Learning a new skill is hard! It takes patience and encouragement to foster an environment for growth. I'm the perfect teacher to foster creativity and expression. Open to all ages, I'm experienced with working with people of all ages. I've taught in preschools and in music schools across Portland.

"Jesse was so great to work with! I had very little experience with music and especially with guitar. I had previously worked with another teacher, but was not satisfied at thier hands off approach to teaching. Jesse was so patient while I learned at my own pace. His teaching style shows that he is incredibly knowledgeable in his craft, while making it so easy to understand for the novice musician. He suggested that I pick out music of my own choice to work on each week, which makes it incredibly motivating to improve! I really appreciate his flexibility with my schedule considering I am currently a student. Sometimes I travel to his house and sometimes I do online lessons. With both modalities Jesse is still able to connect with me and my music! He is the best music teacher and recommend him to people of all ages!"

"Although I was forced to select a subject of Acoustic Guitar on the review form, my children and I have also taken lessons with Mel Parker on every subject in the pick list plus a few more. Theory, composition, recording. Improvisation techniques, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, violin, bass, mandolin, ear training, techniques applied to all music genre's, group and solo performance techniques, ETC! The main point here is that as an accomplished and talented musician, Mel Parker is fluent in the music industry and very skilled at teaching all skill levels, from beginner to pro. He can teach very rigid focused lessons or he can shift and adjust the lesson instantly to meet the needs of the student. My children have been able to explore and experiment different instruments, genre's and other areas of the music industry as their interests grew and changed over the years. They have had many changes in their interests but the one constant has been the TEACHER! It is wonderful to be able to have 1 teacher adjust his education for the ever changing and growing needs of my family. Both of my children are now very accomplished award winning performers and we all agree that Mel Parker has been/is the primary influencer in their accomplishments."

"Chris has really helped me improve my technical skills in guitar as well as gain a deeper understanding of music theory. He always takes into account what your individual interests/needs are and is super encouraging as a teacher. I started lessons with Chris having a basic knowledge of guitar (consisting of a handful of youtube videos) that I felt sort of stuck in. Even after my first lesson with Chris, I felt like I had improved and had tangible goals to work toward. My guitar playing has improved tremendously because of taking lessons with Chris and I highly recommend him as a teacher!!"
