Music Instrument(s) Taught: Bass, Drumset, Guitar, Piano, Voice
Location: N. Portland
My name is Kyle 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 finally Jazz Performance on guitar through Portland State University! At each of these Universities I taught other students my age and locals in each town, supporting myself entirely through music.
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!
Kyle teaches piano, guitar, bass, drums, and voice lessons.
Kyle is currently accepting new students.
