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

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.

"Brian is the man! I've been casually learning how to play guitar on my own for the last few years, but I have very little actual music theory knowledge and I've definitely picked up some not-so-good habits along the way. Brian has been awesome at filling in the gaps and getting my fundamentals straightened out - I've learned more in just a few lessons with him than I have in years of "noodling"."

"Fantastic teacher! No regrets.

My almost 15 year old son, Braden has been taking weekly lessons from Jordan since the beginning of this school year and has learned so much in these few short months! He came to Jordan knowing how to read music and with 3 years of middle school band (trumpet) experience but knowing nothing about how to play guitar. He spends 30 minutes a week with Jordan. In that 30 minutes weekly, Jordan has taught him how to not only play the instrument but also how to do so for the specific purpose Braden is wanting to learn it - leading worship in youth group and someday maybe "big church". Jordan is very good at not only teaching but he always encourages Braden and gives him positive feedback and affirmation. However, at the same time, when he sees that Braden hasn't quite picked up on something or needs some tweaking or correcting, he doesn't hesitate to kindly do so.

We have a very complicated family schedule. Braden plays baseball, is in choir at school, and we are very involved in church as well as other family things. Jordan has been very flexible with us when we have had to occasionally move our lesson at times for various reasons. Very professional.

NOTE: Jordan truly has been a God-send. Braden loves playing guitar and all that Jordan has taught him. However, as awesome as Jordan is, he is NOT a miracle worker. Braden puts in a lot of time on his own practicing all that he learns during his lessons. You must be willing and committed to doing your "homework" in order to get the most out of your time with Jordan.

And most importantly, Braden would say, "He's cool." ;)"
