Patrick Caplis

Piano Instructor

Patrick Caplis has graced the halls of the Multnomah Arts Center since 1991. He holds a BA in Dance and Music from Eastern Michigan University.

His teaching style is loosely based on piano pedagogy coursework similar to his experience at Portland State University, under the instruction of Mary Kogen. This style incorporates working with technique, music theory, rhythm practice, ear training, improvisation, composition, and music history.
