Very skilled, helpful, and easy to work with! Highly recommend!

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!

Julie
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

David
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!

I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.
Sydney
I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.
Luke Lehman
Matt is able to spot small things that make a big difference in a musician's journey no matter how far along they are. His demeanor puts his students at ease, and always encourages and builds up. I'd recommend Matt to anyone, at any level, wanting to grow as a musician!!

"17 years ago I took lessons from Ahmad (maybe 4 or 5 at most due to moving out of state then as well). Fast forward to this year when I came back for a work contract and decided to give him a call. It just so happened that due to COVID the day I called him was the day he was starting to teach in person again. What great timing!!! Unfortunately I only had about 2.5 months of lessons from him this time, but I have learned so much in that short time.

Ahmad is by far the best guitar teacher I've ever had the pleasure of taking lessons from. The cost of the lessons are completely worth it in my opinion. His ability to break things down , his patience, and his willingness to ensure you have the understanding of the days subject is unparalleled. If I weren't moving out of I would 10000% continue going to him. Definitely do yourself a favor and see what he has to offer."

"Ahmad is a fantastic teacher. No matter what skill level you are coming in, he can make you better. He makes sure that lessons focus on the songs/topics that you are interested in and has great patience.

Many times we think of learning guitar, or music in general, as a daunting task, but Ahmad has shown me how to think about playing guitar in a way that is approachable. He does a great job of mixing in theory where appropriate/necessary and will give more confidence in your ability to learn this great instrument than you have ever had!"
