About Chuck

Chuck recently moved to Portland, Oregon from Gainesville, Florida, where he was a staple 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 ...

Mr. Michaelson is the best teacher I've met at Portland.

I do appreciate Chuck for his professional piano lessons and kind. My son enjoyed his lessons sooooooo much and, loves piano more from then on. He is really a great musician and responsible teacher I've ever met at Portland. His patience and style of teaching are sunshine to my son's piano life.

Great music teacher!

I've been taking ukulele lessons with Chuck for over a year now. I am always impressed with his musical knowledge and appreciate the way he goes beyond the songs and also teachers me musical notation, chord progressions, and more. My lessons are always fun, with just the right amount of challenge to keep my skill development moving forward. Thanks, Chuck!

There are many websites that will tell you instructors don't like teaching adults, but Elisa was a wonderful and patient instructor for all ages. She is able to adjust her approach to accommodate all age groups and skill levels. It's important to let Elisa know what your goals are so she can mold the lessons to help accomplish your goals. Elisa also arranges group rehearsals and recitals to broaden the students abilities in group settings (optional).
Alan B. Portland, OR

About Alan

I began taking guitar lessons in the Bay Area at the age of 7. I was fortunate to study with respected musician, Tom Patitucci. I was involved with a touring band by age 11, performing all around San Francisco and the surrounding counties. I simply fell in love with playing and performing music. As I grew older I played in a number of different bands ranging from Bluegrass to Metal. In High School, my parents allowed me to teach lessons out of our front room and it was then I developed a lifelong connection with teaching. I studied music at Southern Oregon University and Portland State University. I graduated from California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. From there, I moved to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mt. range and taught music at the high school ...

About Michael

Hello! I am a 35 year old music teacher. My studio is a large space with lots of seating and is at a professional commercial location, (Main St. in downtown Hillsboro, OR). I have been playing music since 3 years old. At that age I started my first piano lessons at St. Marks Church in St. Charles, IL. My teacher, Sharon, was the first of many piano teachers I had over the next 12 years to come. At age 14 I started on guitar. I still play keyboard and guitar often and this makes up the majority of my students. I also have ukulele students as well as people who just want theory lessons. I started teaching music full time as an independent contractor at Watz Up Hillsboro Music in 2010. I taught at that location for almost 4 years before they closed. The owners retired and I still keep

I have been playing bass and guitar for many years, ten of those years professionally. However, I have a real passion for the little ukulele. Most people just teach a few chords on the ukulele so students can sing a few simple songs. I prefer to teach more challenging instrumental compositions aimed toward performance, for which the ukulele is very well suited. But I will teach you some pop songs, too, and whatever musical style you enjoy playing. Come join me!
