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 :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

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.

If you've ever wondered how you can not only learn songs on your own but also create your own music.......then you're going to freak over the tools and techniques that you'll learn with me! From learning your first chords and scales to music theory and everything in between I'm ready to give you the tools to succeed.

My journey began in my early teens and I'm still playing in bands and performing live on a regular basis. I studied under multiple extremely talented instructors through the Berklee College of Music Online and earned a Professional Certificate in Rock Guitar. Being a student of the instrument is something that I strongly believe in and I really enjoy passing along my knowledge of Rock, Pop, Metal, Blues, and Country in a way that is easy to understand.

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

"I took classical guitar from Dustin for over 5 years. His knowledge of music and guitar is amazing and his thorough, patient instruction got me to where i wanted to be with guitar quickly. I am sorry that he had to move, we had been talking about restarting my lessons now that my schedule has opened up. To sit in the same room and hear him play will move and inspire you to excel with your instrument. He is a master musician and character is impeccable, I highly recommend him to any prospective student."

Within a matter of days James had me learning a simple way to learn to play a song for my girlfriend as a birthday gift. And now I'm hooked on learning to play better and grow as a guitarist. He breaks down the foundation for how to learn the guitar and what is needed to practice. James is your teacher if you're looking to learn as a beginner or wanting to advance your skill set."
