Yes? Then you have come to the right place!

We teach electric, acoustic, and bass guitar to students of all ages and skill levels in a variety of contemporary styles.

As a Portland Guitar Academy student, you will receive a completely customized lesson plan that is built around your personal interests, needs and goals. We know that your time is valuable, which is why we maintain a results-based approach to get you playing with confidence efficiently. We won’t just photocopy pages of a songbook for you – we will dynamically design a curriculum to fit your goals. Our customized approach makes learning guitar fun, and you’ll exceed your present skill level faster.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning guitar, and no two students are the same. Each individual student requires special planning in order to make maximum progress.
Unlike most guitar instructors who only have been formally trained become guitar players, our instructors have trained specifically to be guitar instructors, coaches, and mentors in addition to being professional players. Through ongoing education and analysis of guitar pedagogy, Portland Guitar Academy teachers continually develop techniques to turn traditional teaching on its head in order to get you results faster than expected!

Together we will focus on allowing you to enjoy playing the guitar while also transforming you into a well-rounded musician. As a student, you will learn the fundamentals of guitar technique, music theory, songwriting, and improvisation. You will unlock new parts of your creativity, improve brain plasticity, and be surprised by how easy it can be to play your favorite songs and create your own music in the style you enjoy.
