JC Smith
Voice & Piano Instructor
232 SE Oak Street
Suite 103

Portland, Oregon
Ages 5 to Adults



Whether you are looking for music lessons for your child or yourself, my lessons make the language of music a joy to learn. Each student demands a unique approach to musical instruction as we all learn in different ways. Students may soar using the latest technology and apps during our lessons to hone their skills, while others fare better with a more traditional approach. My goal is to always develop musical, technical and listening skills while having fun at the same time!

I offer private lessons for piano and private/group lessons for voice students. For students near the SE Portland area, lessons are available in our studio at the Oak Street Building. I am also available for in-home lessons in the Portland area. 

I began teaching professionally in 2008 after earning a Bachelors of Music degree from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami (Florida). I developed a passion for performance at an early age, beginning a career in award-winning show choirs and nationally-recognized chorales as both a member and featured soloist. I have served as cantor and soloist in the greater Miami area for over a decade as well as the private piano and voice instructor for the past seven years at the Cushman School, a private academy and National School of Excellence.

I recently moved my studio across the country to the southeast Portland area and have already begun working and performing with area musicians.
