Overview

Hello! My name is Dillon Nadler and I am a teacher who focuses on having fun and being creative in one's studies, while making sure that the student gets the help they need to succeed. I am 22 years old and have been studying the guitar for over 10 years. I have experience playing in a multitude of different musical situations, as well as teaching experience with group and private students, ranging from grade school age to adult. I am currently studying Jazz at Portland State University. When I'm not playing music with others, practicing guitar, or teaching, I like to swim, read, hike, and practice meditation.
I look forward to meeting you so we can work together to expand your creativity and musical abilities!
