Pleasant Surprise

I currently have my daughter, age 8, enrolled in singing lessons with Ben. Previously, we had her starting lessons with the most popular teacher on this site, Lisa, with the highest number of reviews and were disappointed. She didn't seem to really invest in my daughters training. It seemed like a factory mill - student in, student out, next student in. I pulled her out after 5 lessons and went with Ben. It soon dawned on me that we had made a very good choice. Ben teaches the fundamentals first so that your child has a strong toolkit and foundation to succeed, which we weren't really getting from the previous instructor. He is very professional and takes what he does seriously and has made me feel that he cares about my daughter's progress. Additionally, he is affable and my daughter enjoys her lessons with him.

Professional, skilled instructor who has deep knowledge in music theory

I am a beginner in piano and have taken piano lesson from Ben for 2 months. Ben is a very professional instructor who has both the technical skills and a deep knowledge of musical theory. I learned not just the techniques for improving my piano performance skills, but also some intriguing music theory behind the pieces. The lessons are also well organized and it felt the hour goes by fairly swiftly.

Ben takes student's learning serious but still maintains a friendly and easy-going manner. The lessons usually provided at a musical instrument shop that is very convenient and cozy. Overall I am very satisfied with my experience.

Amazing technical knowledge...excellent instructor...very talented

From the first lesson, I could tell from Ben's singing and piano abilities that he was very talented with a lot of experience in music&music instruction. He is very clear with his instruction, extremely professional so it's so cool how down to earth he is. He even spent outside time helping me find a few things that would help advance my vocal abilities quicker. I really appreciate his time and hard work. Be advised: This man is SERIOUS about music (but that's a good thing)...

I am a 37 year old woman who played the clarinet over 25 years ago and am therefore a beginner.
I really enjoy my lessons with Emily. She balances learning the theory with actually playing music really well and thus each lesson is fun!
I would definitely recommend her.

We love Emily!

My son is taking singing lessons from Emily in our home, and I'm thrilled with his progress. All I was looking for was a way to build his confidence, but now I have a kid that sings while doing the dishes, explores new music types, and is learning to read music...in less than a couple of months. I love how Emily has adapted each lesson toward what my son is interested in....scales to the Dr. Who or Star Wars themes...who knew? We love Emily and highly recommend her.
Sarah C. Portland, OR

Rock it out, I teach all styles of singing, so if you are interested in rock/pop/classical/jazz etc. we can work to get you there.

About Sarah

I teach vocal technique to recording artists, singers interested in starting or joining bands, people looking to do musical theater, do some opera, and anyone who just wants to sound great around the campfire. My students learn how to embellish the things they like about their voices and make them sound unique, while at the same time defeating tension and poor vocal technique. I also work on shaping the whole performer, from stage presence to microphone control. My instrumental students work on both classical and modern music. If you are interested in learning how to read music, chords, charts, compose or just learn some basics I am happy to help you with that. Optional recitals are held two times a year. I have a Bachelors of Music, Vocal Performance at the University

Solid Fundamentals, Spiced with Laughter

Sarah's approach to teaching voice--from a classical background of good form and breath control--instills confidence and forms a solid basis for wherever you want to go. Add to that her great good humor, and every class is a pleasure.

About Emily

Music is my life! I started studying at the age of 7 and never looked back. I'm about to graduate with my degree in vocal performance and have already completed my pedagogy requirements. I have 4 years of teaching experience, and 10+ years of performing experience. Currently I primarily perform opera, however I have extensive experience in musical theater, and have performed solo jazz and in vocal jazz ensembles. I am comfortable teaching any of these styles, though of course when it comes to opera younger students will start with art song and other classical styles that are more suited to the less mature voice. *** Lesson Details *** I take a very kinesthetic approach to teaching. I have training in body mapping, and find it extremely useful in teaching students from ages 5-100. ...

Kristin does an amazing job of meeting me where my abilities and needs are. She listens to what I want out of the lessons, but also challenges me to stretch beyond what I think I can do... and I'm often delightfully surprised. She also teaches me a great deal of music theory as we work through singing which is wonderful. Her guidance in helping me use my "instrument" properly has been so valuable. And she is very patient and intuitive in the process.
Nicole A. Portland, OR

My main objective is to help each student find their own voice instead of fitting into a certain vocal mold. We will use the Kolday method to help learn how to sight sing. Using a wide variety of vocal warm ups, the student and I will explore their vocal range and find their sweet spot. We also will use a blend of repertoire to help further enhance the students learning. The students will pick some songs in addition to the songs I give them.

About Nicole

Nicole received her training at Portland State in 2014 where she received a degree in music education. There, she learned the basics of many different instruments, sang in choir, focused on classical voice, developed classroom management, and trained in the Kolday method. Nicole's teaching style is compassionate, energetic, and fun. She believes that all children and adults have the capacity to play instruments, dance, move, and sing with the natural abilities that are inside all of us. Nicole brings this mentality into her lessons by adapting to the individual. Whether they learn aurally, kinesthetically, visually, or other, she will personalize her teaching methods to better reach the students. Her main objective is to foster an environment that promotes a life long love and ...
