Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

Nils is a capable teacher with clearly evident musical experience. I have been taking lessons from him for about 3 months now. He is particularly gifted at interpreting how a work should be played based on how it sounds or has been performed in the past, a skill he brings to bear for his students.
Richard H.
Awesome instructor! Patient, encouraging, very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
John
Nils is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished instructor. He has extraordinary patience and excellent teaching skills. Coming from an adult student with high expectations, Nils has constantly delivered instructional value far beyond beyond what my paid "app" lessons were able to teach me. I highly recommend you give Nils a shot if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level.

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

Have you been hankering to start learning guitar? Do you want to dust off your instrument and start playing again? Are you hoping to expand your self-expression through it? I can help you with that. I have been playing in rock and pop bands as a guitarist for two decades. I have 15+ years as a classical musician. I have two years experience working with children and with children who have special needs. And I'm active in the music community with my own band.

Students can expect to grow as musicians and connect deeper to their passion with each lesson. I am very supportive and love to help people grow. As an added bonus, I can also help people with stage presence and style.

About Cooper

I am a professional musician and music teacher in Los Angeles. I've been writing, recording, and performing as a musician since I was 5. I play in a local rock/pop band as the lead vocalist, guitarist, and song writer. I have experience in classical, bluegrass/gypsy jazz, rock and pop musical sty

I’ve worked with Cooper in studio and seen him perform on stage countless times. He is a prolific and multi-dimensional songwriter adept at writing and performing in a wide range of musical styles. To add to that, he is one of the best stage performers I’ve seen. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!
Linda Faye
Highly recommend.
“The pupil gets to be the star, Cooper Bombadil helps that star shine.”

I asked Cooper Bombadil if I could write a review/reference for him because I was impressed with his abilities to instruct while allowing my songwriting creativity and vision to be held as valid. He built trust and gently augmented but never overshadowed my work. Through encouraging examination of my progress, he illuminated and clarified the project rather than tailoring it to fit his own agenda.
This is a gift that should be shared to others with musical aspirations! His sensitivity, insights and solid suggestions helped me achieve a goal that had lain dormant for ten years. I am beyond satisfied with his songwriting instruction services and plan on exploring his vocal coaching!

Cooper is an excellent musician and very patient teacher! I highly recommend you start taking lesson with him. He’s great with all age levels and made it really fun!

He's a good guy.
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.)

My daughter enjoyed the first lesson very much! Looking forward to more!

"I fell into the pattern of doing the same thing over and over on guitar and needed help getting a fresh perspective. Ahmad is an excellent teacher. He taught me a lot of new theory to make my playing more interesting, as well as different techniques to change up my sound.

Highly Recommended!"

"I haven't had lessons in a long time. But I wanted to get back into them as I feel like I missed alot on my musical journey as a guitar player. Greg knew right away where to start to get me going on the right path. He explains things in a way that's easy to understand and I have alot of fun learning from him."

"Greg sold me my first acoustic guitar at 13 years old. It was a fender acoustic and I bought it with no knowledge and he pushed me towards an acoustic guitar he felt was quality and a great starter guitar. I taught myself for a couple of years and than my parents let me get guitar lessons When I was 16. I was really into heavy metal music, yet Greg made sure I knew the basics. His lessons were very individualized and made sure that when I was learning the basics that I knew what I was working towards. I remember one lesson he gave me a riff to work with, after I had it down he revealed to me that it was Miley's party in the USA. He showed me a song I wasn't interested in learning and taught me how I can make it into a genre that appealed to me. I told Greg that I was really interested In guitar upkeep and he taught me how he cleans guitars and does adjustments in his shop. Greg Campbell takes the time with his students and makes sure he his teaching them in what they are interested in, yet at the same time makes sure the basics are hammered home and are appreciated."
