Private Guitar Teacher

Hello from Adam! My career has been an awesome mix of formal education, teaching and touring.

On the school side, I am a graduate of New York University's Music Business + Technology program.

I have been teaching since 2010, doing both private lessons as well as group and individual sessions at Denver's famed Swallow Hill Music. Part of my duties with Swallow Hill included working with their House Of Rock summer camp program instructing young adults in the 12-18 age range.

I am passionate about teaching guitar and someone that prides themselves on tailoring each lesson to the individual student by putting in the necessary time to prepare materials in advance. I don't have a one-size-fits-all "method" and strive to only provide helpful and applicable instruction. My comfort zone goes anywhere from kids just starting out to adults in working bands that need to add some tricks to their guitar ouevre.

I have been the subject of a full-page feature in Vintage Guitar magazine

About Adam

According to Vintage Guitar Magazine I am "looking to bring a new sound to instrumental guitar music" and that my original songs are "a memorable mix of country, jazz, rock and soul that transcends all genres." As a sideman, my resume includes numerous tours with national acts and I've also had son

Adam’s got some cool blues pockets. I’d never really thought about lead as pockets - kind of like a drummer would think about a fill. So I guess if you think about lead as discrete pockets it should be “easier “ to break down the lead guitar.
Bob G.
Adam is a patient and wonderful teacher. He writes down the lessons and is helpful by sending videos as well. He has reinforced my instrumental play by refreshing the basics, the major and minor pentatonic scales.

Excellent instructor! Helped me get a deeper understanding of the piece I was practicing in lots of different ways: chord progression, themes, style, tone, and technique. I'm excited to practice the things I learned and return next week.
Leanne
Working with Joel has been ideal. He is patient, knowledgeable and fun to work with. Joel is great at explaining things in a way that makes sense to a beginner. He gave me realistic goals that I could accomplish which really boosted my confidence. I history recommend him if you’re looking to improve in a low stress environment.

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!
Christopher
Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.
Krystal
Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and great with students off every age group! I took lessons from him for five years and my only regrets were not having more time to practice so I could get more out of my lesson times.
During lessons we worked on sight reading, ear training, memorizing chords and scales, different picking and strumming patterns, theory lessons, and anything else that I discovered and wanted to try.

Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

Munro is the best ! The best teacher I have ever had. Very knowledgeable about music theory which enables the student to learn improvisation. He simplifies theory making it very easy to understand. He also understands that every student has his/her own learning curve and is never intimidating.
Anna
After studying with Munro for 5 years, I can say without a doubt, I would not be at the level I am now without him. From the first lesson, he had me playing a song. Munro is patient, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. I could not recommend Munro enough for future students!
Ed
I consider myself extremely lucky to have Munro as my instructor. I am in my 50's and only decided to learn to play piano several years ago. Munro can teach the most advanced techniques, music theory and composition, yet still has the patience for someone like myself, who is a casual learner that just wants to play for enjoyment and doesn't always have much time to practice. He is never frustrated by my slow progress, always supportive, and has a knack for finding music that will challenge but not overwhelm me. And while my competency at playing still has a long way to go, my understanding of music, and appreciation for composition are something I would not have received from most any other instructor.
I have no reservations endorsing Munro, regardless of your ambition, skill level or goals.

"My son absolutely loves Nils. Nils has been his guitar teacher for a few years now and has been very patient and accommodating especially since my son has Autism which can sometimes make traditional instruction a challenge. However, Nils is able to recognize his strengths and treats him just like a regular "cool dude" and I have since seen my son be more confident with his guitar playing. Nils has helped my son become a better " Rock Star" every week."

Then there was a glitch with my trying to download the guitartuna app he recommended, so that didn't work. Little disappointed. By lesson #2, my guitar should be fine-tuned. Kevin provided practice lessons. I look forward to practice practice practice. Kevin was patient, very knowledgeable, and seems like a great instructor to learn from.

How to Set the Right Goals for Learning Guitar

Learning the guitar is a great goal in itself - but you'll need to get more specific if you want to truly make some progress! Read on as Hillsboro, OR guitar teacher Geoff A. walks you through the goal-setting process...   For Beginners The first goal is getting the fingers of the fretting hand to cooperate in forming chords. I begin with E, A, G, C, B7, and D chords. Practice ten to fifteen minutes twice a day and understand: your fingers will hurt a few weeks until calluses form, depen …

Do You Have The Right Strings On Your Guitar?

Each year the CMT honors country music stars at their Artists of the Year celebration - 2011's honorees included Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney.  Before they were stars, however, they had to work up their guitar skills from the very beginning. Of course, if you'd like to be the next musician in line for country stardom, you'll need to keep your guitar at your side.  Ideally, you should have already found the perfect guitar (or even better, maybe one of these.)

Spice Up Your Playing with these Essential Guitar Strum Patterns

Many guitarists have a tendency to focus most of their practice time and energy on left-hand fretting technique. Although the left hand is very important, mastering different rhythms and guitar strum patterns with your right hand adds a whole new dimension to your guitar playing. Understanding Guitar Strum Patterns Start by playing a simple chord progression. Ideally, you should be able to play through the chords without looking at the fingers on your left hand. Starting with a simple prog …
