CURRENTLY ONLY TEACHING ONLINE INSTRUCTION. SIGN UP NOW FOR SPECIAL SUMMER DISCOUNT $$$$ Hello: I have been a guitar instructor for over 22 years, and a piano teacher for 10, as well as a Ukulele and violin instructor for 5. My guitar program is the most popular. I am able to get you playing in no time. I have also tutored elementary students and worked for Montessori's for many years. I really love this job! I had a real hard time learning guitar when I was growing up because of an accident to my left arm, but I wanted to play so much that I was able to overcome it. Because of this, I think I have learned to be a very patient teacher. I see students who get frustrated and think that it's too hard to play the guitar or piano, but I promise you, my program is fun and simple. I can show you the steps to success. I have taught over 1000 students in a variety of cities from Minneapolis Minnesota, to Los Angeles California, and now Portland Oregon. This is what I do. It is all I do. I have individually taught over 35,000 lessons total in 22 years, so I have dealt with every kind of person including those with disabilities. I have taught every age from 5-70, but through Take lessons I prefer younger clients due to scheduling conflicts. Older clients are welcome to take lessons through the online platform. I currently teach Piano to level 4, so if you are a beginner, you will love my new program. Music is my life, I can help you make your dream of playing a musical instrument come true, even in a few short lessons. You can do it! I have worked for Take Lessons a long time and have a good track record *** Lesson Details *** The thing I have learned over the years teaching guitar and piano is that everyone learns differently. I have taught in family situations where there are two or three siblings learning at the same time, but each sibling learned the skills that are unique to them. Some students are better at playing rhythm, some students are better at lead, some students are better with barre chords. some on piano are better with left hand, others with the right. As long as you are enjoying playing the instrument, you will be able to grow in every area at your own pace. Music should be a fun and rewarding experience. My lessons usually include songs that you like to play and are at your level of playing ability. Whatever makes you feel the most comfortable is how you will be able to learn the best. Tell me what you need I am always here to help you. *** Studio Equipment *** Amplifiers, Chords, Microphones, Guitars, Piano Private Cancellation Policy Effective 1/1/2014, all lessons scheduled with Lisa N., Take Lessons instructor for piano, guitar, bass, and voice, will now have new reschedule and cancellation requirements.

Lisa is great. She is very patient which is important for a complete novice. Her guitar playing shows she has the skill and experience of a veteran player.
Lisa is great. She's very patient with our almost 5 year old and enthusiastic with success.
I am terrified of singing in front of others. She was so welcoming and great. After the first lesson, I am already feeling more confident in myself. I definitely recommend!
