About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 500, in my experience, with even a few minutes of consistent daily practice anyone can learn music. 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. L

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.

Nils is extremely knowledgeable and explains concepts thoroughly and patiently. He’s very much mastered both teaching and performing his craft and is equal parts artistic and technicality minded, a balance most of my previous creative instructors lacked, and one I believe plays an integral part in teaching a craft well.

I have been taking lessons from Andrew for over a year. I use to go to him when he worked at a music shop in Hollywood but now he comes to my house to teach lessons.

Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.

"My teen-age sons, 15 and 13, have enjoyed a great summer of guitar lessons from Jordan. He has been a pleasure to work with and extremely professional and conscientious as an instructor, easily working around our challenging summer schedule. Jordan is my boys' fourth or fifth guitar instructor, and I'm so happy to report that they are more enthusiastic about guitar and practicing more than they have in the past! My boys, who both have ADHD, have appreciated his patient, calm and friendly approach. They say he "doesn't get frustrated", that he is open minded and really makes things understandable. We would definitely recommend him as an instructor, and hope to continue taking lessons from him in the future!"

"Ahmad is a master guitar teacher. Every lesson I feel like he's sharing the shortcuts to playing how I want.

I've been playing guitar and keyboards for many years, so I've been somewhat cautious about approaching a professional instructor to help me "get serious" about the guitar. Like other players, I've run into overly pedantic instructors who take every player back to the beginning and teach the "right" way to play the instrument, but also the loose instructors who have no structure and can't deeply answer theory or technique questions.

Ahmad has managed to build a rigorous teaching methodology while still being fun and really engaged in what the student wants to learn. He's has compiled drawers and drawers full of prepared exercises and explanations, but he's looking to help me find the most helpful topics to work on rather than disregard what I already know.

I have a great time learning with Ahmad, because he knows an amazing amount about music, the guitar, performance, and recording. I throw questions about him about frets, intonation, tuning, chord naming, pick angle, string gauges, fingering, chord voicing. He's consistently humble about his knowledge, and then tells me everything I could want to know on the subject. When I ask about players I like, he's completely familiar with how those players play. It seems like half the time he's had my favorite players as his own instructors.

Best of all, Ahmad really loves music. He's genuinely thrilled at my improvement, and is very respectful of what I already know and how I already play. I've been playing the guitar for a long time, but Ahmad got me excited about making music."

"I've always LOVED guitar... but I NEVER thought that I'd be playing it myself someday! That is until I found my music instructor Russell. I took up keys at first, but I felt this urge to want to learn the guitar. Russell is an awesome instructor, in fact he also taught my 7-8 yr. old (at the time) drums, which she picked up quick. He was always very patient, in fact he always walked in with a smile and a positive attitude, which is really important for parents of kids taking any kind of lessons. Anyway, back to the music, Russell is a multi-instumentalist and a fantastic producer and engineer as well, but I have to say that he is truly one with the guitar... so I was very lucky to learn from a pro but more importantly someone who is truly passionate about teaching. I have applied all the knowledge I've gained and applied it to my own music productions. Thanks to Russell, my musical compositions have grown tremendously. I love that I can learn new guitar songs and put techniques I've learned to good use, as well as with the keys! Thanks so much Russell!"
