Instruments:

I am a passionate and motivated flutist who has been teaching for several years. I graduated with my MM in flute performance from the University of North Texas, and had the privilege of studying with several great flutists. During my time in Texas I mainly studied flute with Dr. Mary Karen Clardy and contemporary practice with Dr. Elizabeth McNutt. I have performed in masterclasses for Amy Porter (Michigan State University), Susan Milan (Royal College of Music), Dorothea Seel, Jean Ferrandis (Ecole Normale in Nice, France), and Thomas Robertello (Indiana University). I believe that it is important to keep growing a musician at any level, and I still pursue studies with Catherine Karoly of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I am currently active as a performer, competitor, and teacher.

Emily S

Instruments:

Music is my life! I'm currently finishing up my Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance at Portland State, and teaching music in the Portland community. I am also very fortunate to be an active performer. I've sung lead and supporting roles in many musicals and operas, and am thrilled to be a part of the internationally renowned Portland State Chamber Choir. In all of my experience I have found that there is nothing as exciting or rewarding as watching the growth of a student in music. The look on their face when they exceed their own expectations is amazing to witness. I truly feel blessed to be a part of this amazing profession.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. To get started, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. As their dexterity, co-ordination and speed progresses, they can start broadening their musical horizons. They can learn new chords, playing and performance techniques and styles, such as legato, staccato, glissando, runs, fills, as well as work on their sight reading and general theory (time signatures, modes, modulation...). Advanced players often want to study a particular genre of composer, or work on certain aspects of their playing and repertoire. This may include improvisation, or exploring different genres or styles, such as Avant Garde, Jazz or Classical piano.
Studying piano as an adult is a fun and educational experience. You will learn the technique of the instrument, and various selections of repertoire tailored to your needs and goals. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, our instructor can help you improve your skills on the instrument. Many of our adult students enjoy playing their music at local clubs and venues in their communities.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
