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.

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

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!

Nils is a great teacher. He has really advanced my music theory knowledge.

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 ...

Expect to learn the vocabulary for parts of the guitar as well as the amplifier. This class is cool because we get to talk a bit about frequency’s, the range of guitars, and how it pertains to the knobs on the guitar and amp. Oh yeah, and shred distorted licks! The class will require an amp, and I can provide one if needed.

Anything and everything guitar is my specialty. Electric or acoustic welcome. We will cover the parts of the instrument and why everything is so darn important (like how to stay in tune!). We can perfect your guitar's signal flow, pedals, and amplifier settings, too!

All kinds of styles from simple note picking and open chords to pop/rock/punk/metal/blues/jazz and more.

Want to learn basic rhythm? lead? fast strumming? how about making those big chords without making your hands hurt? I can help! You'll be jamming along with your favorite songs and with friends in no time.

I typically will teach and write guitar using tablature instead of standard sheet music. These are a simple set of lines and numbers that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

Also I can show you how to play with a capo or slide, fingerstyle or pick. If you want to learn grunge or sing deep, I can show you how to play in lower tunings as ...

Nathan is an excellent teacher. He is very clear in his explanations and helped me to better understand guitar chords, strumming patterns and fingering. He gave me several exercises to work on in the coming weeks. I am looking forward to my next class.
