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 went 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

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!!
Peter L. Portland, OR

About Peter

Hello! This is Pete LM, a pianist from the New York City area. I graduated from the Purchase College conservatory of music this winter with a B.M. in Jazz Studies. While in New York, I taught many students from ages five to sixty. Teaching piano has been a big part of my life for around eight years, and I am very passionate about helping people to learn to make music. At school, I was very involved in history, geography, civics and writing in school and have received honors in these subjects. I have traveled to many different countries and love meeting new people. Every lesson for each student will be completely individual; I will work with YOU to figure out what you want out of the lessons and we will work together to achieve it!

About Taryn

I've been a tutor in upper level math since 2011 at a tutoring facility in Sandy, OR.

My interests in education are anatomy and physiology, science, and math. I have a wide range of experience in tutoring and working with youth from newborns to adults going back to school.

I received inclusion training through the City of Eugene to boost my experience and awareness of working with students with special needs. My summers between 2004 and 2009 were ...
