About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 500, in my experience, with even a few minutes of consistent daily practice anyone can learn music. Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live. Li

Nils was very knowledgeable, very easy to talk with, and not only listened, but was responsive to what I wanted to accomplish with my lessons.
Daniel
Nils is a great teacher with a lot of experience. I highly recommend employing his help to improve your guitar skills!
Thomas D.
Speaking with honesty. Nils is a major reason why I truly love playing and learning the guitar now. It's hilarious to me in hindsight when even the mere thought of taking an in person class would make me anxious and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to connect with my teacher. But Nils, he's made it seem like we've been friends for years. Every class just builds on top of my ever growing appreciation for music. I leave every session not only excited about what I've learned but as well as the potential of what I CAN learn. Couldn't recommend him enough!

With every single one of my students, I take into account their musical background, how much time they're able to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then structure my lessons in a way that's specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

She is really nice and a great instructor, especially for beginning guitarists. She is patient and encouraging, and tailors your class to your interests.
Christine Hargrave
Lee is a great instructor! She lets me choose the kind of music I want to play but also provides structure and great guidance. Taking lessons online has been easy and it makes no difference that Lee and I are on opposite sides of the country. I highly recommend Lee!
John Bowman
Lee is an excellent music teacher. She has helped me get past my utter lack of confidence in my musical ability. After a year of guitar lessons with her patience and guidance I'm having fun and have gained the confidence to progress much further. I take both online and home lessons from her. I highly recommend her at all levels.

Based on our first lesson, I would highly recommend Becca for a teacher of young kids. She came to the class prepared, was very patient with my son, and left him wanting more and with something to work on. It was a very good experience.

Hello! I have been teaching guitar for over 7 years now. Form beginners to advanced students I make it my duty to find the students interests and help them develop their own sound. As a Berklee College of Music graduate I have studied composition and music production, skills that I am happy to teach any student. In addition to teaching guitar my students have the option to learn music theory, as well as recording and mixing original compositions that we develop together in class and as homework assignments (DAWs - Logic & Protools). My specialities include Blues, Classic Rock, Jazz & electronic beat production.

I'm not young, and I'm hard to teach music theory to, but he was patient, and is helping me figure a way into learning important stuff that I find kinda dry and not fun to practice. (I'm a good player, but music theory is very challenging to me.)

"working with Jordan overall has been a great experience. He has done an excellent job in balancing my desire to play right away with the necessary skills to ensure long term results. Jordan has a very broad range of playing skills, types of music, and talent to accommodate anyone looking to further their guitar skills. We have bounced around from blues to rock to christian worship songs and from accoustic to electric. For someone that is an accomplished musician he displays and embodies a lot of patience in working with beginners. I would recommend him to anyone that asks and that is serious in furthering their playing abilities!"

"Paul is AMAZING! He is the best music teacher I've ever had. He makes the class so fun and enjoyable, and he makes me love acoustic guitar even more. I started to take lessons with Paul as a beginner knowing nothing about acoustic guitar, and have learned so much from him. He is so patient and knowledgeable, he is able to answer all kinds of questions that I have relating to guitar and music. He has AWESOME personality, when you take lessons with him, time flies. He is very good at learning a new song quickly. Sometimes I pick songs that I want to learn, and show these songs to him during class, some of the songs that he has never heard before, he can recognize the chords right away, and wrote them down and teach me how to play. He is a great teacher, you won't be regretted to take his class!"

"After having played sax and flute for 7 years, I decided to start to learn the guitar during the quarantine. After a month of learning on my own and through apps, one of my good musician friends pushed me to seek out lessons. I had a few teachers in mind, but he told me that Charles would definitely be the best choice for me.
I have now been taking weekly lessons with him for the past three months, and my progress has skyrocketed. My guitar playing was quickly brought to the next level, and he also gave me a solid foundation in music theory that has helped me a lot on the sax and flute as well.
Charles is excellent at adapting to his student's needs and limitations. When I was traveling and had no access to a guitar, we had a lesson on facetime audio using my flute in the middle of a park, and that was one of the best I have ever had, even without video or the guitar.
Charles is a great teacher and also a great musical mentor. He will not let you stagnate, he will push you to reach your goals and provide you all the tools to do so. The homework he gives after each lesson also helps a lot to consistently reach the goals that have been set.
For any level, beginner, intermediate, or expert, I strongly recommend him to be your next guitar instructor."

Paul worked with me at my pace and met me at my level. In addition to the lessons about guitar Paul is also very knowledgeable about music in general and has been opening me up to new artists. I recommend this teacher for anyone whether they are just starting out or looking to pick up where they left off. Paul's the best!"
