Diedrich W. Minneapolis, MN

About Diedrich

I hold a Music and English degree from Hamline University, but that doesn't make me a good teacher. I've played professionally for over 25 years, have taught English as a Second Language, Hockey and Audio Engineering, taught people age 5 to 75, and have taught private music lessons full time in Minneapolis for the past 9 years, but this doesn't make me a good teacher. What makes me a good teacher is that I have an infectious love of music and a passionate commitment to helping people. I do have specialties, like helping singer/songwriters develop their lyrics, arrangements, voice, and performance as well as helping artists get through creativity blocks, stage fright and preparing for studio recording. My experience as a producer, studio musician and audio engineer has ...

You really couldn't ask for a better teacher than Diedrich. I've been working with him for about a year on songwriting, singing, and guitar, and have improved so much more than I ever expected. I had no songwriting experience when I started, and with his help, I've gained the skills and confidence to write songs I feel good about. He’s patient, supportive, and genuinely cares about helping you be the best you can be. I always walk away from lessons feeling like I understand something I didn't before. He’s inspiring to learn from. You’d be lucky to have him as a teacher.

I’m a lifetime student and decided to take voice lessons this year. Diedrich has been an amazing teacher. He spends time getting to know the student and learning her goals to create the best plan for her. He’s a great listener and observer which allows him to quickly adapt to the students needs.

No need to look for another teacher in the Twin Cities. If you’re reading this, you've found the best and should book your first lesson now.

The BEST Guitar Teacher I've EVER had!

Diedrich,
Is a very nice, genuine person, who is honest, straightforward, and knows EXACTLY what he is doing. He is smart, wise, funny, and very charismatic. He makes taking guitar lessons a joy, rather than a chore.

I would recommend Diedrich to anyone pursuing guitar or bass lessons, whether it is for one or two lessons, or for the long term mentoring and instruction, of which he is extremely capable of providing.
Michele M. Minneapolis, MN

About Michele Denise

As a professional teaching artist and vocal coach, I have been helping students of all ages and abilities "find their voice" for over 20 years. My goal is simple: to give you singing lessons that will change your life forever. You can build unshakable confidence and have fun while learning techniques professional singers take onto the stage and into the studio. And, you can have a great time doing it!

Give one lesson a try and if you're not hooked, I will refund 100% of the lesson cost (in cash) at the end of your first lesson.

About my vocal lessons/coaching:
Most students come into lessons with the same question: "Am I any good? Is there hope for me?" Well, here's the thing... The vast majority of professional vocalists never went to school for ...

Michele is awesome and she knows her craft. Her style of teaching puts you at ease where you can train at your best. She will critique your voice, give positive feedback and provide you with corrective techniques to improve. She will even coach you on caring for your voice so you can soar far beyond what you ever thought possible. From my first lesson, I knew I had the perfect instructor.

Michele is a true talent and a dedicated music teacher and performer. She is well-experienced in the music business, and has remained positive throughout the years in all of her music endeavors. She's a benevolent and virtuous PRO, and I always look forward to her joyful dedication, in and out of the music room.

Michelle is an awesome teacher. She balances honest feedback with encouragement and support so that you can learn and grow as quickly as possible. She also makes it fun! Lessons are both laid-back and organized. It's so exciting to hear my own progress!

If you're thinking of taking singing lessons, take from Michelle.
Scott S. Minneapolis, MN

About Scott

I began playing guitar as a teenager and fell in love with the instrument. I immersed myself in everything I could get my hands on: rock, blues, classical scores, you name it. Through private instruction I learned the science behind the instrument and the fundamentals of music theory. I began performing in local bands when I was 14, getting on stage to play anything from punk to acoustic alternative. It was at this time that I discovered other instruments. I began to sing and play piano, which are now passions of mine

I entered the University of Minnesota's School of Music in 2009 and music became my life. I furthered my performance abilities and expanded my interests. I graduated in early 2014 with my degree in music therapy.

I currently teach music full time and perform ...

Scott has been a great teacher and has been able to present things in a way I can understand but also pushing me to learn new things every lesson. He also listened to me and understood how I wanted to learn. It has been a great experience!

About Yasmin

My music students are introduced to basic music theory, notation, and technique that enables them to play fun, simple melodies after the first lesson, and fun simple arrangements after the first month.
My students can expect lessons to suit their tastes and goals, whether they intend to pursue music formally, professionally, or for personal enjoyment.

I studied classical piano and theory with Sr. Cecile Amore, jazz theory and mellophone with be-bop saxophonist John Mastroianni, jazz piano with Noreen Grey Sauls, and jazz history with the late Bill Finegan- big-band leader and acclaimed arranger for Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller.

I enjoy playing classical music (primarily Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin) tango, and pop songs as well. I have played keyboards and bass guitar ...

Christine K. Minneapolis, MN

About Christine

I'm an operatic soprano and a current MM candidate in Vocal Performance at the University of Minnesota, with a BM in Vocal Performance from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. Roles include Marenka in the Bartered Bride, Fanchette in Mademoiselle Modiste, Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte, and the Diva in La Divina, with chorus experience with Mill City Summer Opera and Minnesota Opera. In addition to experience teaching vocal technique, I have experience with English, French, Italian and German diction, and many musical styles.

Lessons typically start with a short physical and vocal warm-up, and then we move on to repertoire (selected by either myself or the student). This can be flexible though, and change based on the student's needs.

She's super friendly and awesome. She constantly motivates you to do better. I wanted to be able to sing higher and expand my range as a soprano. She helped me achieve that as well as helped me smoothen my singing especially in transition notes in my voice. All of course within the boundary of your voice. She'll never push you if you or her feels like that's the limit for today.
Aaron T. Saint Paul, MN

About Aaron

First off, I would like to say that I am extremely passionate about music, and even more so passionate about helping others. To combine the two through providing musical instruction is something I have always enjoyed doing.

I have been playing guitar and drums for over a decade and teaching for about half of that time. I have a Bachelors of Music in Contemporary Urban and Pop music with guitar as my primary instrument and drums as my secondary. I also spent much of my time in school studying songwriting and music production. I have played and toured with many different bands with music from a variety of styles and genres, and have spent vast amounts of time in the studio recording and producing myself and various other artists.

In terms of teaching lessons, I realize that all ...
