Great guy. Works with your musical ability. I’m new to saxophone, but am on my 3rd instrument so I’m not totally new to music. He understands that.

I've been taking lessons with Michael for over a year now, and it is definitely a highlight of my week! Michael was curious as to why I wanted to play the clarinet and has subsequently brought me books with Klezmer, Classical Duets, Jazz and Tango music. I had taken classical lessons for many years, but I can honestly say that I progressed so much more with Michael. He is fun to work with, and always finds the places where I have progressed. He is very skilled at finding new challenges to explore and does so in a most supportive way. Can't recommend him highly enough!

I just took my first saxophone lesson and it wouldn't be better! Michael is very enthusiast and knowledgable, he guided me through the basic steps of playing sax. He made me feel confortable and confident, which is very important when somebody starts to do any new activity. I am looking forward to my second class and I know it will be a blast. Great guy Michael is.

Portland, OR
View Full Profile

Students will be introduced to the parts of the flute, note fingerings, breathing techniques, and beginning pieces in styles ranging from pop, classical, folk, and Renaissance music. Duets are also included.

About Chuck
Chuck moved to Portland, Oregon from Gainesville, Florida, where he was a prominent member of the music teaching and performing community for more than 25 years. Originally from Chicago, Chuck completed his BA in Music History and Masters of Music (MM) at the University of Florida. Chuck became obsessed with The Beatles when he began piano lessons at age 12. His first attempt at composing was actually improvising melodies over the ending chords to "Hey Jude". Along with playing Beatles tunes Chuck learned classic standards from a set of Reader's Digest Songbooks inherited from his grandmother.

Chuck has performed with classic rock, top 40, funk, R&B, and jazz groups, and has served as an opening act for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and legendary Texas bluesman Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. As a soloist he's played classical musi
c, blues, jazz, and original compositions. Before devoting himself to music full time, he worked for 8 years as a radio announcer on WUFT-FM Gainesville hosting shows such as "Nothing but the Blues", "Montage" (acoustic jazz), and "Musica Antiqua" (Renaissance and Medieval).

Chuck has taught students of all ages and skill levels in piano, guitar, organ, flute, digital keyboards, recorder, and ukulele. He's also a multi-faceted composer whose instrumental pieces are infused with elements of classical, blues, and jazz styles.

Chuck's teaching philosophy: "In my 25 years of teaching I’ve found that everyone learns in different ways and at different rates of progress, so each of my students is treated as a unique individual. I try to get to know my students in the first few lessons so I can be more sensitive to their personalities. This helps me choose the best teaching approach for them. From the very first lesson I create a relaxed setting so students feel no apprehension, especially when trying something new. This allows them to feel free to take chances and experience playing music as something enjoyable, not a life or death situation! The biggest measure of my effectiveness as a teacher is when my students embrace new challenges and the opportunity to improve".

*** Lesson Details ***
My primary goal as a teacher is to present musical material in a way that keeps students excited about what they are learning. Even with absolute beginners, I will have a student playing actual songs that they are interested in as quickly as possible. Along the way I include fundamentals such as scales, strength-building exercises, rudiments of theory, and ear training. Some of the method books I use include the Alfred and Faber and Faber series, and Hanon's The Virtuoso Pianist, among many others. These materials are always supplemented with arrangements and transcriptions of popular songs and classical pieces, along with original exercises designed to teach specific styles and techniques. I also use interactive music websites to introduce students to concepts of music theory. The styles that I cover include classical, rock, jazz, and blues. As students progress in their creativity, I also introduce them to composition and improvisation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Kawai K50 upright piano, music playback devices, Hammond C3 organ, multiple keyboards/synthesizers, acoustic and electric guitars, amplifiers, computer recording equipment; parents are encouraged to sit in on lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I don't provide any specific equipment. Piano students should have either a well-tuned piano or full-sized weighted-key digital keyboard (Casio Privia, for example). Guitar students should have a well set up electric or acoustic guitar and an amplifier (for an electric guitar).

*** Specialties ***
I teach students of all ages and skill levels. The styles that I cover include classical, rock, jazz, and blues. I also teacher recording techniques using computer software including Ableton Live, Reason, and Pro Tools.

I am really impressed with Chuck's ability to get right to the things I want to learn while still explaining the fundamentals. I'm a self-taught guitar player (30 years) but I came to Chuck with no reading skills and no piano experience at all. He has been able to take what I know and show me how to apply it to learning theory, but within 3 lessons he also has me really excited about playing actual music that I'm into. Great learning studio and professional yet laid-back demeanor. Definitely plan on sticking with Chuck.

Emily is fantastic! Within the first 15 minutes of my first lesson, I was sounding much, much better. I'm an adult returning to the flute and Emily is teaching me more than I ever learned in years of lessons. In addition to being knowledgeable, she makes me comfortable. Now I just don't want to put my flute down.

If you are an adult beginner, or "re-beginner," or really anyone wanting to learn and improve, then look no further!!! Emily is hands down the best music instructor I've had the pleasure to study under. As someone with performance anxiety, she helped me feel comfortable playing and was always encouraging--never an unkind word and never made me feel uncomfortable for making mistakes! She truly cares about her students' improvement and that her students find joy in creating music. Emily's knowledge and background is astounding! Need music recommendations? She has them. Need instrument recommendations? She knows what's what. Interested in the history behind music theory and interpretation of classical pieces, she can refer you to countless materials. Emily is a fountain of knowledge and talent. One really cannot find a more wonderful instructor.

Hayden, ID

I fell in love with the flute at the age of 5 after hearing my aunt play. When I first tried to play, I couldn't make a sound. However, I decided I wanted to play flute in my school band anyway at the age of 10 years old. I ended up learning the flute and excelling as a first chair player all through high school. In college, I continue to playing because I loved it and planned to major in music education.
I would like to teach beginning and intermediate students how to play an instrument I absolutely love. I will include scales, tonguing, breathing and other basics of instrumental music for woodwind instruments focusing on flute. Additionally, I will give ideas on solos or things for students to focus on or practice in the future.

About Lorie
Thank you for your interest in lessons! I tutor Algebra, Flute and Psychology. I have been tutoring in Algebra for over 9 years because it's fun for me, which I know is hard to believe! I like to help students to really understand the concepts they need to know for future endeavors or to at least get through class. I offer homework help for students or general help for people who need to brush up on certain concepts.

Additionally, I like giving flute lessons because I have received lessons in the past and I know how helpful and motivating they are. Lessons help you to outline what your goals are for playing. Plus, you have someone to critique your playing and give you correct instruction in areas where you are weak.

I majored in psychology and love learning all about it. The schools of thought and how our brain learns and
works is fascinating to me. I hope you will feel the same way after learning about the subject.

Experience:
I have an Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Idaho. I started as a major in music education and math education, and decided they were not for me because I preferred tutoring, instead of teaching a lot of students at once. I couldn't stand leaving a student behind to struggle on their own and possibly give up on something due to time constraints or not understanding how something was taught. I prefer to work with students one on one or in small groups, so they receive individualized attention. I like to tailor my lessons to each student and really focus on what they need help with to build a solid foundation for the next stepping stone in their education, whether it's Algebra or Flute.

I have tutored in math for over 9 years. Most of that is 9 years solid, but I started with part time here and there as a middle school student.
I also started teaching flute lessons as a high school student to beginning middle school students at the request of my band teacher.

I truly believe if you set your mind to learn something, you can. We are so lucky to be living in an age when education can be found easily. I hope you will consider taking lessons with me so we can help each other learn!
