About Barbara
I am delighted to be a part of the TakeLessons team here in Portland. I have recently retired from a career in elementary education employed as a visual arts instructor. In addition to my public school career I have also given private piano lessons for the last thirteen years. I graduated from the University of Idaho in 1991 with a bachelors degree in education with a minor in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I have been classically trained, my goal is to provide a strong background in music theory, technique, and performance, which will allow all students to successfully pursue interests in all genres of music. Creating individualized instruction for each student is an important means of nurturing a successful and motivated pianist at every level. I use a broad range of materials based on student interest and abilities with a
core curriculum built upon Hanon, Alfred, and Faber and Faber method books. I look forward to the opportunity to be part of your many successes in the world of piano music.

I have played the piano off and on (mostly off) since childhood. As an older adult, I was looking for a piano teacher who would really work with me to customize my lessons - and Barb is a perfect match. We spent the first few lessons on Christmas carols and now have switched to classics. She is patient, and provides good pointers. I recommend her highly.

the opportunity to cross over if they would like.
I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.

Learn to play Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, and more!

About Kris
My name is Kris, and I have a lot of experience in many areas of music.

In my lessons I emphasize creativity because this approach helps students develop a more complete understanding of music. I will help you build a strong foundation in technique and improvisational skills so that you can see real, measurable progress in your playing and your confidence level.

Ultimately, while my students do learn to perform specific pieces of music, they also learn how to sit down at a piano and simply play, expressing themselves through music in a natural way that lends itself to playing with other musicians, or for song writing.

Lessons can be given from the Melody in Movement Studios at 811 SE Main St, 97202, part of Active Space LLC.

I hold a degree in Music Education and specialize in teaching children piano lessons. I have over ten years teaching experience and also teach voice and guitar. I believe learning music should be a fun and rewarding experience and it brings me great joy to share my passion with my students. I teach the fundamentals of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, and technique. I create a safe environment where students feel able to open up and express their emotions through music and have fun doing it!

About Elizabeth
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and guitarist. I graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Music Education and have been teaching and performing for over 10 years.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels but specialize in teaching young beginner children. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I tour the nation with my b
and and have a deep passion for performing. As a professional musician I offer insight into what it means to be an artist and foster that creative force in all of my students. I love sharing my love of music with my students and look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better musician!

-Berklee College of Music Almuna
-Interlochen Arts Academy Graduate

Classical piano is very beautiful. Your fist homework assignment is to listen to it regularly to begin to understand it. Piano is a very logical instrument. I will break everything down for you in a simple way for you to understand. We will learn different styles and genres to make things interesting. We will learn how to write a song, play along to a track and learn to play by ear and by reading music.
I am excited to get to know you and help you grow in your talent!

About Leah
Leah, a teacher, singer/songwriter, musician, entertainer and Berklee College of Music graduate.

She loves teaching and loves her students. Her main joy in teaching is watching her students grasp a new understanding and appreciation for their desired art and growing in their skills and talent. She loves seeing her students overcome obstacles. In her lessons, Leah sets the tone for care and a safe space to truly grow fearlessly. It is important to grow in confidence in your craft. In lessons, she covers setting a foundation, different genres, confidence, warm-up exercises, vocal techniques, ear training, music theory, harmony, performance techniques, audition preparation, range, improvisation, agility, freedom and more. She focusses on a few things at a time and has her students grow into other areas to work.

Musically, she provides
sounds and smooth tones of Jazz and Soul. Her latest EP entitled SonKissed is Jazz influenced music with Neo-Soul vibes and a positive message about love and life. She has been singing around Boston and New York and writing and recording new music. She has great things in store for her in the near future and much music and passion to share with the world.

Originating from Henderson, North Carolina, she grew up singing in school, church and choirs including the Raleigh Girls Choir of Raleigh, NC. Taking singing and piano lessons grew her love for music. She always had a fondness of jazz music starting at a young age, as her father would play jazz music. Studying music has led her to perform in recitals, concerts and festivals such as the Mozart Music Festival with The Capital City Girl’s Choir in Vienna, Austria, to study and perform abroad in Valencia, Spain, to graduate from Berklee College of Music and to continue writing, performing and growing as an artist. Leah also enjoys being involved in and performing in community events as she gives back. It is very important to her to help others as many have helped her.

She gets much of her inspiration from influences such as Jesus Christ, her parents, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Dianne Reeves, Lisa Fischer, Sammy Davis Jr., Sade, Anita O’day, India Arie, Erykah Badu, Adele, Diana Ross, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Mary Mary, Robin Thicke, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Esperanza Spalding, Miles Davis, Al Jarreau, Nancy Wilson, Ledisi, Sounds of Blackness, Take 6, Gretchen Parlato, and Quincy Jones just to name a few.

I teach beginner to intermediate piano for ages 5 and up.

The techniques I teach are techniques I have learned through classical training. Classical technique is the healthiest and most efficient technique used in playing piano, and it can be applied to all styles of playing.

Students will learn...
- to play with ease, precision, elegance, emotion, and freedom
- music theory
- sight-reading
- memorization techniques
- effective practice methods to achieve great improvements in technique
- how to practice with intention; in other words, focusing on the quality and consistency of practice rather than the length of practice

Learning piano is a worthwhile journey that requires dedication and commitment. I hope to be your guide in this journey!

Thank you

About Gayaneh
I've been a classical pianist since I was 6. Music is my true passion, and I am eager to teach beginner or intermediate students. Piano is an amazing instrument to know, whether you play classical or contemporary. The techniques I teach will be from my classical training, and they can be used in all genres.

Learning an instrument or improving your musical skills is so much fun, but it can be frustrating at times. I want to guide students and make practicing something to look forward to every single day!

I specialize in the beginner piano student! All ages are welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs or goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more.

About Rachael
I am a professional artist, teacher, linguist, and lifelong learner. I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a Masters degree in Jewish Studies and scholarships in Hebrew language and Pedagogy. I have had fine art displayed in New York and Tel Aviv and have won national and international awards for it including the Simon Weisenthal Center's Cartoonists against the Holocaust Award and had work displayed at the Makor Gallery's Amendicons exhibit. I am a Grumbacher certified acrylics and drawing instructor. I have also helped teach children part time since I graduated high school in 2007. I currently teach adult Hebrew students at Berlitz language center and tutor elementary school students one-on-one with Varsity Tutors.

Drawing and Painting students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every stud
ent has a unique style. I teach students to use their artistic license to apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual form of expression. I can help any student draw and paint with freedom and confidence while simultaneously teaching technique.

I teach Hebrew students of different ages and experience levels. I studied Biblical and Modern Hebrew for over 12 years, and have taught Hebrew for over five years. I can teach students to read, write, speak, and understand Hebrew on a beginner or intermediate level depending on the goals and preference of the individual student.

I took piano lessons for many years and participated in a choir after that. I love music and would love working with beginner piano students to help them learn technique and basic pieces and perhaps even improvisation.

I am a native speaker of English and would be interested in applying my language learning knowledge to teaching English to those who need it. I would be interested in working to meet the needs and goals of students and teaching them reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

I hope I can be of service. Thanks for your interest!
