Kyle S.

Portland, OR

I've spoken English my whole life, and have been published twice.

About kyle

Hey!

My name is Kyle S. and I'm incredibly passionate about music education for all ages. Over twenty years of playing all instruments has taught me there is not one specific way to teach music, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in. I started teaching music lessons in after school programs when I was eleven and fell totally in love. I continued to do this for many years driving to neighboring towns, volunteering at church youth groups and local Boys and Girls Club all around my hometown.

I we
nt on to study Music Education at Oregon State University and Guitar Performance at the University of Oregon and Jazz Performance on Guitar at Portland State University! At each of these Universities I taught students my age as well as locals in each town and have been supporting myself entirely through music since 2008! Additionally, I work for a Record Label in Portland, "PJCE Records", and have real life experience with production, press releases and booking through the west coast and mid-west.

In Portland I've been gigging, playing on records, recording music for films, and volunteering every week at Nonprofit Music Schools around town to help underprivileged kids, and expose them to the joy of music. Give me a call and we can talk about what you're interested in, and get lessons started.

Look forward to hearing from you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm fairly laid back, and teach from a number of different texts depending on the interests of the student. Each student is different, and I vary instruction accordingly. I have a lot of experience songwriting, composing, and playing as a sideman in groups on different instruments. I've been part of bands led by myself and been hired by other people, as well as composing for different groups of instruments from trios to full orchestras.

If there is interest, I can also provide worksheets based on the curriculum and standards held by the University of Oregon, and Portland State University.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private home studio equipped with a many guitars, a piano, a Wurlitzer, electric bass and amplifier, two drum kits, and a beautiful kitty.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitars, amplifiers, and notebooks for all students even if they do not own guitars or amplifiers. I also make copies and email attachments of all homework, and record lessons and send them to students to listen to when practicing.

*** Specialties ***
I've been playing and studying guitar since I was seven years old. I've attended Berklee School of Music summer workshops, camps, seminars, and presented music theory papers at conferences at the University of Oregon. I can and am willing to teach any type of musical style or interest to any skill level!

Kyle's strengths lie in finding out where the student is, and then teaching to that level as well as inquiring and embracing the curiosity of the student. Whether you're there to learn the basics or to explore writing and "feeling into" music, Kyle is a great guide. I have appreciated him and recommend him wholeheartedly.

I've had 4 different guitar teachers in the past and none of them teaches like Kyle does. I can feel that Kyle has a very vast but deep understanding in music, but more importantly he knows how to convey his knowledge to a student, which is an ability many teachers lack. Kyle would change his way of teaching according to different students, and I know this because he integrates piano into my guitar lessons due to my past experience with a piano, and it helps so much.

Kyle is very patient and approachable, but has just the perfect amount of sternness to keep pushing you forward.

Learn with Kyle, you won't regret it.

Thank you Kyle :)

Kyle has been teaching my 9 year old and 5 year old kiddos piano. He has taught my 9 year old more music theory than she's learned in all three years she's been taking lessons elsewhere. Highly recommended!!
