Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I started music when I was 5. My grandma, an amazing classical pianist, would put quarters on the backs of my hands as I played my first songs and if they didn't fall off, I could keep them. I started guitar when I was 12, and I've been teaching for 12+ years. I currently teach over 40 lessons a week through the MN School of Music and independently.

I will create a lesson experience that is personalized for you. I love working with:

-Kids (as young as 6): The most important thing for a child beginner is that music becomes a positive part their life. I have many ways to teach kids the foundations of music and guitar while having fun at the same time. I want each to kid to be successful, which means balancing fun with structured, goal-oriented lessons. Your child will set goals each lesson and leave with a clear practice plan to succeed.

Aspiring Songwriters: Songwriting is the reason I play music and teach. The songwriter's goal is to communicate their feelings, thoughts, and

Taking lessons with Kismat was both fun and educational, as it should be. I was introduced to a variety of different music theory concepts at a pace which suited me. It was never too difficult nor too easy. Of course your progress will be dictated by how much you practice, but Kismat's lessons will give you a clear path to follow. Over all I had a lot of fun learning from him, he's a great teacher and fun guy to jam with.
Kathy
Our son Joe has taken lessons with Kismat for about the last year. They have been the most productive lessons of our sons guitar playing! Kismat found a way to teach our son in a way that appealed to him and applied to his way of learning. I could not be happier with the experience! Thank you so much!
Ingrid
I was Kismat's employer at Guitar Center in Roseville, Minnesota. He was fun to work with and great with students of all ages and skill levels. His energy and positivity always brightened the day and inspired the customers.

Teaching guitar lessons is something I’m particularly passionate about. I still recall the feeling I had the first time my dad put a guitar in my lap and taught me to play "Sweet Home Alabama" at the early age of seven. My ultimate desire is that my students would have a similar type of musical experience through my teaching.

Are you tired of not being able to play YOUR songs? Want to learn the basics of tone, pedals, effects, amps, etc.? Want to learn to play something other than Wagon Wheel? Hit me up!

What you will learn:

1. Scales, chords, improv
2. Rock, country, blues, jazz
3. How to play YOUR songs MUSICALLY

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Acoustic guitar is one of the most flexible instruments for accompanying yourself; you can be as simple or complex as you want, allowing you to give lots of characters to your songs. Making the songs you play have YOUR unique style and sound is what we’re after, so we’ll learn not just the basics of guitar, but we’ll learn finger picking and alternate chord voicing, and alternate tuning (and every other trick we can use to make our sound more colorful). I play primarily worship songs on acoustic, but we’ll incorporate some music from other genres as well to develop new skills.

Robbie enjoys playing and teaching piano. He is patient and considerate of his student. His warm, outgoing personality brings the music to life as he teaches. I would highly recommend him as you search for your future musical instrument instructor.

Robbie is a kind and patient instructor, he slows down the student and helps them to learn and whatever way best suits them. Everything from advanced theory down two basic rhythm he makes simple and easy to understand. I thoroughly enjoyed learning from him.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

About Jake

I want to teach the material that excites students. After a handful of really crummy experiences with teachers who wanted me to learn a specific way, I stumbled across a music school in Philadelphia and a college in Boston that really got the principle of teaching what students are drawn to. Bruc

"Kirk was my first guitar teacher, and helped me develop and cultivate my raw desire to play the instrument. His open, laid-back approach and flexible schedule made my learning experience enjoyable. The only complaint I would have, is that Kirk does not really enforce persistence; practicing a phrase or entire piece with me until I get it perfect, but that might just be a personal preference. Overall a patient, enthusiastic, down-to-earth guy who's generally fun to be with, and even more fun to learn guitar with."
