Instruments:

My desire to teach the violin comes from my very real experience of a life spent with music. Since I became a student myself at the age of 4, I have been learning not just about the violin, but what it means to be a musician. I bring 25 years of my own struggles, accomplishments and understanding to you so that you can grow as a vioinist and a musician!

Instruments:

Samantha settled in Portland in 2007 after graduating from the Oberlin Conservatory with a degree in cello performance. Raised in New York in a musical family (her great-uncle, Fred Hellerman, is a founding member of the folk quartet, The Weavers), Samantha is a cellist, singer, songwriter and arranger in the classical and folk traditions. She's currently recording her first solo record. When Samantha isn't teaching or playing cello, you can usually find her on her bike, in the woods, in her garden, in her kitchen, or with her nose in a book.

I have achieved an Associate degree (Phi Theta Kappa) at Portland Community College, and in addition, received a Certificate of Completion for PCC's Professional Music program. I am a current student at Portland State University’s School of Music with a focus in Jazz vocal studies.

Elisa B

Instruments:

I have been teaching violin and strings over 20 years. I like to teach students as individuals and create a practice program for them according to their personal goals. I am supportive and want to help each student to find their highest potential. I think that both the process of learning and the end goal are important. I like to balance musical enjoyment and technical training. I like to see the students making new musical and technical discoveries each week. I encourage them to set goals such as performing in quarterly student recitals and to consider taking part in a Syllabus program that has advancing yearly goals. I use the Suzuki method especially with the younger students and encourage parents to become effective home teachers through weekly coaching and printed materials.

Instruments:

I am a very passionate and devoted musician. I believe that music is extremely important in  life. When I was young I struggled with severe depression, and at that point music saved my life. Playing the guitar gave me the tools i needed to express my emotions in a healthy manner, and I wish to share these tools with everyone that I can.

    Review by Nancy Fritsch

    I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.

    My son enjoys his viola lesson each week with Martina. She is disciplined in her approach to teaching but always makes my son's learning experience enjoyable. She knows how to challenge him and develop excellent form. Martina is always punctual and professional. We both highly recommend her as an instructor.

    Review by William Klepatsky

    Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

    My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.

    Review by Richardpoplawski

    I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

    Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

    Review by Timothyfullard

    We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

    Review by Paula Chacon

    I've always said, "It's all about the teacher." That skillful, effective teacher who can reach that child and ignite her passion, is truly a gift. Ric does that for my daughter. As a former music teacher myself, the most challenging thing in working with children is how to build their fundamental musical skills while letting them have fun and be expressive. The teacher must create a safe, supportive environment, and Ric does that. Ric immediately focuses on fundamentals of tone and technique, giving my daughter succinct instruction on how to improve, thus she can sense the improvement immediately. Ric seems extremely easy going; even when lighting a fire under her sometimes under-achieving butt, Ric never criticizes, judges or blames. He works with my child, understanding her, helping her problem solve, and even giving her the quick answer sometimes so she can move quickly and stay motivated. Ric balances fundamentals with fun and expressiveness, so my child feels as though she can 'play' and they truly make music in every lesson. I am thankful we found a good match with Ric.

    Review by Bradford Putt

    Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.
