Lesson Details

Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been teaching Guitar since 2012 in a wide variety of settings, styles, and age groups. It is never too early or late to begin leaning guitar!

I tailor my teaching approach for the specific needs and goals of each student, always putting their priorities first. While I am versed in theoretical approaches and using method books like the Hal Leonard series, I am also fluent in working on contemporary music with a focus on ear training and improvisation.

Hi! My name is Tyler Berg, and I'm a great resource for drum set, guitar, piano, bass, and music theory lessons in Portland, OR. Conveniently located in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood, my studio is equipped with all the instruments and lesson material needed to provide engaging, challenging, and fun lessons for students of all backgrounds. I have experience teaching students ranging from age 4 to 70, in settings varied as private instruction, group classes, ensemble coaching, and high school/college masterclasses.

Taking lessons is one of the best and fastest ways to enhance your musical abilities. Learning a musical instrument is also proven be similar to a full body work out for the brain. Oh yea, it's also going to be AWESOME!

Tyler taught me how to play the drums! He was so engaging and informative, and his teaching style allowed me to learn quickly. I had so much fun and have developed a passion for the drums. I recommend highly taking lessons from him.

Tyler is an excellent teacher who made learning music fun for my kids. I have twin boys and one of them took drum lessons from Tyler and the other took piano. Both boys loved taking lessons with Tyler and looked forward to the lesson each week. Tyler was very professional in his communication and was super easy to work with. I would highly recommend Tyler.

Tyler worked with our daughter for over a year prior to relocating to Portland. He was engaging and a talented teacher (and drummer!). We were sorry to see him leave Chicago, but whoever works with him will be in for a treat.

Tyler is a wonderful music instructor and I very much enjoyed managing him at the Rock House. He is exceptional at teaching students of all skill levels on an array of different instruments, and he approaches every student's unique needs and goals in an engaging, fun, yet relaxed way. Definitely take lessons with Tyler!
