I teach modern country, traditional country, and western swing.

I have been teaching for 15 years.

I am very patient and adjust areas of study to fit my students goals.

About Kimberly
I started playing music around the Kansas City area twenty five years ago. I graduated from The University of Southern California with a degree in studio/jazz guitar (cum laude). While at USC, I received a merit scholarship and an award for professional leadership and service within her department. I also graduated with honors from Musicians Institute (GIT), of Hollywood, CA.

I have toured the U.S. and Canada playing venues such as The Portland Rose Festival, The Playboy Jazz Festival, The Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series, Irvine Lake Blues Festival,The Burnaby British Columbia Blues Festival and the Long Beach Blues Festival. The headliners at these events included Robben Ford, The Neville Brothers, and Johnny Winter.

I have released two solo CD's that have received first-rate reviews, as well as international airplay. Af
ter the second CD, I was biographied for AMG (All Music Guide) the internet's first source for music information. Here are excerpts from the AMG bio:

... there are also elements of Jimi Hendrix (arguably the first true heavy metal/hard rock artist), Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan in her playing, and she clearly has a strong appreciation of jazz--not only jazz-rock fusion improvisers like John Scofield, Larry Coryell and Mahavishnu Orchestra founder John McLaughlin, but also, straight-ahead bop favorites such as Kenny Burrell, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass.......eclectic outlook is one of her strong points; her ability to move from a tough, aggressive blues-rock groove to a more cerebral, fusion-minded approach to the occasional soul-jazz/hard bop number has made for some very unpredictable albums.

I have been teaching full-time for the past 15years. I have taught all ages and popular styles. In 2008, my blues guitar method was published and distributed through Amazon.

*** Lesson Details ***
I incorporate a tailored curriculum to help people achieve their personal goals. Learning music is not a "one-size fits all" proposition. I can show you the songs that you want to play. I can also teach you music theory, technique, improvisation, reading and more. I adjust your course of study according to your areas of interest. If you are dying to learn a Led Zeppelin tune, or are planning on auditioning for a college level jazz guitar program, I can help you achieve these goals. I have taught hundreds of beginners along side more advanced students. My students have gone one to study music at GIT, Fullerton College, Pasadena City College, Berklee, Cal State LA, and USC.

Most of all, I am extremely patient. The ability to playing a musical instrument is measure on a calendar, not on a watch. I often work at a slow, systematic pace. I am generally very laid-back. On the other hand, if you learn very quickly, I can readily show you the skills you need to meet your goal. I have fast-tracked many individuals that were seeking admittance to an academic program.

My teaching studio is computer equipped. This allows me to incorporate computer software that enhances learning. One such program, Band in a Box, generates accompaniment for students so that they can work on their soloing skills. Another program can slow recorded music down so that the student can practice slowly with it. Also, I often give out play-along practice CDs for improved learning.

The aspect of performance is often not addressed by many. I am able to work with my guitar students while accompanying by performing live bass or drum parts, or work with bass students while playing the guitar or drum parts. This allows the student to understand his or her roll in an live band.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room room w/ guitars, bass, drum set, pa system, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I teach all popular guitar and bass styles.
I am a expert in Jazz, Blues, and R&B. (degree in Studio/Jazz guitar)
Great with theory, technique and reading.
Have given recording lessons with CUBASE.
Now teaching drum kit to beginners

I really like Kimberly because she lets me pick my own songs to learn and is really nice in general. She makes music sheets for me to take home and study and I’ve learned a lot from her since my first lesson. I think she is a great music teacher and I hope anybody who wants to take guitar lessons will give her a shot.

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

About Jonah
Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals.

I've worked with dozens of students of all ages over the last seven years and seen each of them achieve major breakthroughs and discover/rekindle a passion for music.

If you're interested in getting started, I'd love to hear from you! I teach out of my studio in Culver City but am available for in-home lessons as well.

Learn the specifics of Electric/Acoustic rhythm or lead guitar.
Besides learning to play your favorite songs, we'll cover common chord progressions and scales, as well as Country specific techniques like chicken/Travis/finger-picking, pedal steel bends and banjo rolls.

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.
Like all good things in life, there are no shortcuts, and learning the guitar takes time and effort, but in return you get the ability to express yourself through music, which is one of the most rewarding skills anyone could ever learn, at any age and in any situation.

My main focus is on helping you reach the point where you are actually playing music, instead of endlessly going over exercises or theory.
I want you to be able to play music you would enjoy listening to, because this is when you will start to truly appreciate your accomplish
ment, and progress will start to come much easier.

Together we will discuss your personalized course, based on your goals and situation, and along the way I will provide materials/tools and a summary or a recording of each lesson as needed, for you to take home to work on.
Different aspects we'll discuss are technique, chart/sight reading, music theory, ear training, soloing/improvisation, and developing a strong sense of rhythm, most of which will be done through simply learning to play the songs you like.
Besides the basics, it's very important to learn how to independently keep challenging yourself, learn from your mistakes and continue growing musically, simply using your ears and whatever information you can find online or anywhere else, even without my help.

Besides teaching you how to play I can also help with finding the right instrument and equipment, provide advice on guitar/amplifier maintenance and setups, as well as recording techniques, or any other practical matters related to playing music/guitar.

Lessons can be either at your residence or at my fully equipped home studio in the Hollywood Hills/Studio City area. In a beautiful and private environment, with plenty of (free/safe) street parking available.
Lessons via Skype are obviously available as well.
I look forward to hearing from you!

As a new guitar player, Nils has been able to help me progress with confidence and ability that I didn't know was possible this quickly! Having in-home lessons and a really flexible schedule has been really helpful to me.

About Eli V.

Laguna Beach, CA

I have studied music while rocking in bands for over 10 years. I am 26 now and have been teaching guitar for about 4 years off and on in between shows and travel. Guitar playing has opened up multiple doors for me and for that I love teaching and paying it forward. I am versatile in all forms of guitar playing: rock, classic rock, acoustic, finger picking, country, metal, punk, etc.

About Eli
I am from Laguna Beach, CA at 27-years-old. Growing up surfing and playing in bands, I was blessed to have a smooth transition from the surf industry into making a steady living playing in bands all around Orange County and LA. I spend most of my days surfing, teaching kids in high school to play guitar and playing shows at night. I also have been in numerous bands as a hired guitar player opening up for bands like The Growlers, Fidlar, Crystal Castles and playing at Festivals in the desert during Coachella. I feel I have a lot to share not only for the technical side of guitar but also the feel and live performance of playing on stage, forming a band, and building confidence in your playing.

Pasadena, CA

I grew up in Memphis, TN where I originally picked up traditional blues guitar, from there I moved to Austin, TX (the live music capital of the world) where I would play outside restaurants for donations to charity. For high school I attended The Putney School in southern VT, this is where I began playing other instruments and learning jazz guitar. I currently attend LA College of Music for Music Production and Recording. If interested I'd love to offer lessons in Music Production and Recording as well.

I have been playing guitar for 12 years and teaching private lessons for about 2 years now. When it comes to guitar lessons the styles I focus on are rock, blues, jazz, folk, metal, funk, and fusion. My personal favorite genres are funk and fusion.

I have an interesting array of guitars and when needed or interested, I'd love to bring a spare for the client to use or experiment with. This includes an original Fender "Strat", a rare Ibanez "Baritone" guitar, a vintage 69' Harmony ...

I also have two compact combo amps to bring if needed. One is a Blackstar and the other is a Fender. On a side note many guitarists love to play around with pedals and effects. If this sort of thing is up your alley I'll have no problem in doing so.

I am currently the Music Teacher at Arts In Action Charter School in East LA. Over there I teach guitar, piano, and production to the elementary and middle school students.

One thing I love is watching a student try to achieve something that's been setting them back for a while and then finally seeing the moment they realize they've got it! Self realization is a huge part of learning the language of music.
