Obviously also depending on your specific goals and experience, besides learning your favorite songs, we'll discuss techniques, music theory and creating music yourself (improvisation and songwriting).

I can also provide helpful advice on guitar related aspects like sound/equipment, instrument setup /maintenance and recording.

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. Li

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 teaching guitar since 2005. I personally lean toward rock, blues, jazz, gospel , christian contemporary and pop. I've taught in school districts and churches for 2 years so I've come across many different styles and genres. Many of you have specific goals that will be honored in our lessons but I will tell you from experience that UNDERSTANDING is better than knowing. You will learn concepts that will apply to several genres and even techniques.

I have 4 levels of curriculum. Level 1 is for true beginners that may not even know ANYTHING about guitar. Level 2 is for the person that may know some chords like " G ", " C " , " D " or " Am ", etc. Level 3 is someone who knows all of the " open " chords and has moved on to barre chords but hasn't yet mastered many chord voicing on the fretboard. Also, this individual could be ready to explore the world of guitar improvisation and soloing. Level 4 is an extended study of the above levels. This student could journey deep into ...

I've been playing guitar for 19 years and teaching for 10. In my teaching experiences so far, my students have gone from little or absolutely no experience, to playing their favorite songs in just a few short weeks. I will work with you to set goals and will customize lessons to work toward accomplishing them.

Becca is an excellent teacher. She is very patient and explains things very well. She's also prompt and communicative and easy to work with on scheduling.

Based on our first lesson, I would highly recommend Becca for a teacher of young kids. She came to the class prepared, was very patient with my son, and left him wanting more and with something to work on. It was a very good experience.

I have been seeing Jeff for about 3 years. I was an old folkie - with no time to practice - for about 50 years, but finally my wife bought me some lessons when I retired. Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!
Richard R.
I immediately felt at ease with Jeff and it did not take him long to figure me out and point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. I wish I lived here so it could be on a more regular basis. But happy with what I CAN get. Thanks Jeff!

My Aunty is turning 80 this weekend and I decided to learn how to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele as a surprise for her. Jeff not only helped me accomplish my goal but also got me started on other songs as well. His patience and enthusiastic personality made the lessons not ony productive but personable as well!!! 2 thumbs up to an awesome instructor!!!!!

I believe that each person has their own best way to learn. As a self taught musician I can help Beginners and Intermediate players absorb the fundamental aspects of Guitar playing as well as methods of gaining muscle memory which are essential to learning how to play! These lessons can help a player explore and learn in their own way to better nourish their growth as a musician.

"As a middle aged man trying to learn an instrument, it was a daunting task to find a teacher that would work with me to learn the basics of guitar without laughing at my inability to actually play the darn thing.

Adam has been a great teacher and exactly the sort of professional and understanding person I was looking for. While I don't think my mediocre (getting better every week) guitar skills are the best testament to Adam's ability as a teacher, I think the fact that he has encouraged me to stick with it and turn a crazy idea into a legitimate hobby is."
