Featured Clackamas county Piano Teachers

Chuck M

Instruments:

In 2011, Chuck 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 a Masters of Music (MM) at the University of Florida. Chuck began piano lessons at age 12 at a time when The Beatles caught his attention. His first attempt at composing was actually improvising melodies over the ending chords to "Hey Jude". Along with playing Beatles tunes Chuck learned classic American standards from a set of Reader's Digest Songbooks inherited from his grandmother.  Chuck was initially self-taught until his desire to go beyond what he could do on his own led him to seek out a teacher and eventually study music formally in college.

I am a classically trained 3rd generation musician. I have experience teaching students from beginners to advanced level.

Russ B

Instruments:

I am a pastor and music teacher.  With 8 children of my own, I am well versed in the art of patient and encouraging teaching.  I specialize in beginners, young or old, in helping build good technique, broad understanding, and purpose in their playing (whether it be for fun or for performance).  I tailor my approach to the individual needs of the student and their desires/goals along with that of the parents (for younger students).

Chad H

I have loved music as long as I can remember. As a child, I started taking piano lessons as soon as I could. I have learned a lot in the last five years of giving private lessons, and I continue to learn with each lesson.

Travis M

I'm a passionate and patient instructor who loves sharing the joy of music with others.  Be it teaching a student chords, riffs and songs, or playing and performing with one of my bands, I'm constantly striving to grow as a musician and teacher.

More Information About Piano Lessons

For the sake of lessons and practice, a keyboard is often a much more viable option than buying a piano. Pianos are space consuming and expensive, as well as being very loud. Keyboards are perfect - especially for beginners - as they are more diverse in their functionality. Most keyboards come with a range of different sounds and effects (FX), such as chorus, reverb and synthesizer sounds. Another great feature common to many keyboards is a record function. This allows students to hear things back after they have played them, such as practicing scales etc... or to record ideas they are composing!
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
Taking piano lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill and have fun at the same time. Our instructors can help you learn from the very basic level if you are a beginner, or if you are an advanced player they can help you refine your skills. Adult lessons will focus on learning the technique of the instrument, including how to read music, chords, and learning repertoire
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
