I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

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!

Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.

I teach piano both as a starting to other instruments and as a goal in and of itself. My method is to teach as much as I can in the learning style of the student. I have taught from every available piano method book out there. The goal is not to get through each book as quick as we can. The goal is to become a student who enjoys making music. The student and I work as much as we can during the lesson time on the understanding of the songs, method, style, and theory of music. Therefore, if a someone does not have much time for practice during a week, as happens for time to time, they will still learn and progress.

About Shae

I am an music instructor with 30 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 38 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn pia

My 2 girls started with Shae when they were 5 years old and both enjoyed their lessons. Shae is patience and good with kids. Even though we don't have the best schedule, the girls liked her so much I couldn't switch to a different teacher even though it could have saved me a few dollars too.

Shae is a great teacher, she is very patient, and my son enjoys his lessons. We have been with Shae for several years, and it has been fun watching my son's ability grow during that time.

Singing lessons that bring out the best in your voice! I am happy teaching a wide reange of genres related to singing (Though my speciality as a performer is in classical music). I believe that a strong foundation in musicality and vocal health can benefit anyone, and from that I can you move towards that specific style and aesthetic they are after, while emphasizing the strengths of uour natural voice. For younger students, the focus is more on instilling a joy of music as a whole and promoting musical literacy and ear skills. I believe that even if a someone does not pursue music long term, musical exposure can benefit focus, creativity, and confidence, as well as provide a healthy dose of fun.

I hold a Master's of Music in Voice from the University of Minnesota with a strong emphasis in vocal pedgagoy and phisiology. I look forward to working with you or your child and helping guide the voice to its maximum potential

I was told when I was 6 that I couldn't sing. Since then I was afraid to open my mouth and If I would try my throat would close up. I had one 30 minute lesson with Ian Magill and I was stunned with the sound he got me to produce. I found my voice thanks to him.

"Daniel is an interactive tutor who is very helpful with any calculus problems you have. He helped me study for my math test by going through problems step by step with me, which allowed me to understand the concepts at hand. He made sure that I actually understood the process by asking me questions, so it wasn’t only memorization but actual grasping of the way to solve problems. I definitely recommend Daniel to anyone who would like help with their calculus!"

Really, the only thing that matters is that Grant is educated, patient and (perhaps most of all) comfortable. I trust him and his analysis. I trust his advice. He's a great mentor and somebody you can count on."
