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.

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!

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

I am a self-taught musician with 15 years of experience playing electric and acoustic guitar. My lessons begin by learning what inspires you as a musician, and working to take you where you want to go! Learning some of your favorite songs is often a great place to start. By learning a variety of music, you'll quickly begin to notice patterns & understand basic theory on what notes work together well. From there, you can apply that knowledge to improvisation, as well as songs you may want to write!

From those first few lessons, there's a million different ways we can explore the guitar together. With my lessons, I offer recording time in my home studio where you can learn how to write, record, produce, and mix fully arranged songs!

Reach out to say hi, and let me know what some of your immediate goals and questions are!

Specialties: Indie, Rock, Pop, Alternative, Psychedelic, Folk, Acoustic.

Mitch gave lessons to my son about 6 years ago (when Mitch still lived in St. Louis). He still picks up the guitar a few times each week to unwind, and often mentions things Mitch taught him while practicing.

"Nils has been working with our son for a little over the past month, and we are very happy in finding such a talented teacher. Our son has some music background, having taken some guitar instruction in the past, so Nils was pretty quick to pick up on where he is musically and right off the bat work how to adjust to his needs. His lessons are a good mix of theory and application, and we can see how they (the lessons) are progressing in terms of complexity and reach. While we, the parents, are very happy to let them work out the lessons themselves, Nils has taken great care in keeping us in the loop, and we certainly appreciate that as parents. Certainly looking forward to how these guys progress!"

"Pat really knows his stuff with jazz guitar. My goal has been to study chord melody with some jazz standards and modal jazz, and Pat has a lot of ideas with chord shapes, voicings, scale choices and alternate and passing chords. I play a lot of rock tunes as well and I've found the lessons with Pat have really helped me expand how I look at playing those songs as well. As a teacher, Pat is really patient and provides really useful supplemental charts. Highly recommended."
