Private Electric Guitar Teacher

I enjoy passing on wisdom gained from years of playing in professional bands and studying music to people of all ages. I continue to strive to push the limits of my playing, and encourage my students to do the same. I maintain a relaxed, anxiety-free teaching style that is focused on the individual goals of each student, no matter what their level of experience and stylistic preferences might be.

I picked up my first guitar at the age of 13, and has been addicted to it ever since. I currently play guitar for internationally touring video game metal band Powerglove, as well as nationally touring progressive metal band Lattermath. Prior to moving to Los Angeles in January 2019, I was based in Boston, playing in a number of critically-acclaimed bands.

In high school, I studied guitar with Joe Stump, ranked as the Number 6 Fastest Shredder of All Time by Guitar One magazine, as well as traveling to Sweden in 2008 to study with Mattias "IA" Eklundh, recognized as one of the most ...

About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 500, in my experience, with just a little bit of practice each day anyone can learn to play guitar. 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.

Dillon L.
I started with Nils after self teaching through YouTube, and would consider myself about an intermediate. I hit a point in my playing where I no longer had a good idea of how to get where I wanted to go. Nils has been really helpful in giving me direction towards my goals and exploring new guitar concepts through songs. He has a wide knowledge and has encouraged me to learn multiple styles, as well as improvisation which I used to shy away from. It’s really been invaluable to have someone like Nils as a guide in your guitar journey
Anirban M.
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!
Daniel
Nils is a great teacher. He has really advanced my music theory knowledge.

Ms Teresa is awesome! She has taught my daughter how to play both Piano and guitar. I love that she actually teaches the music and explains things not just how to play the song!
Michael
I started trying to teach myself piano until I met Ms. Arth. On the very FIRST lesson she pointed out some bad habits and quickly resolved them. This allowed me to reevaluate my technique and iron out the basics. I plan on continuing my studies with Ms.Arth and I highly recommend her for any student beginner or advanced. Totally 💯 satisfied!!!!

Teresa has been amazing helping Lily learning piano. Her self esteem has grown so much. I love that the students learn multiple instruments.

Gerard O.
I am 4 or 5 lessons in with Jared and I am truly and entirely thrilled with the progress I am seeing and the depth of guitar knowledge I have gained. Jared has a way of teaching that not only allows for actually playing right away but learning the foundations of knowing the guitar and music. I can see that this allows for not just playing "songs" but making music of my own. This is the freedom of "knowing" the guitar.
Alex
Headline: Jared is amazing teacher.
Jared has excellent knowledge of music foundations and music theory.
Knows styles and genres, knows not only how to play but create too... And how this style was born.
He helps to build habit to do things right - I'm talking about technique - or, in other words - how to use your hands!
Same time he's extremely patient.

I'd like to recommend Jared for everyone who want's to learn play guitar (don't look at your age), his teaching approach works great, because he is teaching you and adjust classes for you.
Tom
Jared is real patient and easy to learn from, he keeps things simple and makes sure you understand.

Hi!

I offer engaging and personalized guitar lessons for students. We build upon fundamentals skills through each lesson as the student learns their favorite songs. We also explore different aspects of music including improvisation, theory, composition, and even recording their own music. I provide study materials such as PDF files, backing tracks and videos to help students review what we cover in the lessons.

I had the privilege of receiving my B.A. in Guitar Performance from Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity of learning and performing with great musicians from around the world. Because of my experience working with students of all ages from kids to adults, I truly believe that I can help anyone accomplish their musical goals!

I am currently only doing online lessons on Skype.

I look forward to meeting you and getting you started with lessons!

Best,

Juan

"Dave is an awesome instructor who truly understands how to reach an adult learner like me. I have about 9 years experience playing acoustic guitar and was worried about making the jump to electric. Dave is teaching me many of the steps I missed or thought I could work around. His knowledge of music theory, and more importantly, his ability to relay it to me in a practical/attainable manner has been invaluable. I've had several teachers before but Dave is really making it click. Also, I appreciate his approach to web-based materials so that I know exactly where to find answers outside of our sessions. I'll be a client as long as he'll have me and intend to have him teach my son guitar when the time is right!"

He individualizes his classes and keeps your preferred genre in mind. He even wrote out the music based on youtube videos of my favorite songs (guitar or not!) Very talented and knowledgeable about his craft. Cannot think of one negative thing. SUPERB!"

"If you're thinking about taking lessons from Ahmad, do it. For years I thought I just couldn't play the guitar. I tried learning online, but nothing stuck. I even took a group class, which was better than trying to learn online, but I still wasn't satisfied. So, I decided to look into private lessons, even though I was nervous about the one-on-one dynamic. For years I have struggled with performance anxiety and was afraid that would prevent me from ever really learning the guitar and playing with other people. I discussed this with Ahmad before and at my first lesson. I can't tell you how amazing it felt a few months later when we played a song together and I had no fear or anxiety.

I credit this to the fun and relaxing atmosphere Ahmad has created in his studio space which makes it easy to learn, ask questions and enjoy my lessons. He has a deep passion for music which is infectious. I leave every lesson feeling energized and excited to work on my new material.

If you're interested in learning how to play the guitar or improve your skills, give Ahmad a shot. You'll be so glad you did. Before, I thought I just couldn't learn how to play the guitar, now I'm looking forward to years of honing my skills, playing with friends and experiencing the joy of creating music."

Aaparrently our son learned so much more in one private face to face lesson than online classes he's been doing for a month. ( This isn't online private/group lesson, it's a class with video lectures and exercises). Would definitely continue."
