Private Guitar Teacher

I have students that are in every walk of their guitar playing journeys. The material and methods we use to learn guitar will vary considerably based on your level of ability/knowledge and age.

About Jason

Music comes from the soul and is an incredibly vulnerable form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put themselves and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will find in our teacher-student relationship.

I have been teaching acoustic, electric, and bass guitar for many years. My passions lie in folk, blues, rock, and indie music. I love to share that passion with my students in an encouraging and patient environment. Communication is key in a learning environment to ensure that students are working and progressing toward their goals. I have given lessons to students from age 7 through 75, and understand that each student has a unique interest and skill set to be developed.

I have been a si

nger/songwriter out of the Twin Cities for the past 14 years and have played in venues all over the world. These include coffee shops, events, and churches in Minnesota and go as far as various establishments in Guatemala. My debut album was released in 2007 and I have been a part of numerous projects since that time. I have also had the privilege of taking intensive blues lessons with Michael May and vocal lessons with Helen Lapakko.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back, patient, flexible, and caring teacher. I have experience with and enjoy teaching all ages and abilities. I like to guide students through material that they choose to work on, as long as it is within their ability. During my lessons, I will cover everything from the introductory basics, improving your technical abilities, ear training, theory, and improvisation. Time can also be taken to work through electric guitar basics involving amplifiers and effects and guitar maintenance. If you're looking to purchase your first quality instrument, I'm happy to meet at a shop and walk you through that big and exciting decision.

*** Studio Equipment ***
None

*** Travel Equipment ***
Musical Materials, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Amp, Pedaboard, Metronome

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to teach people starting out in tablature, as I feel that they can more easily access songs in this method. I think it's important to explore strumming and fingerstyle songs and techniques early on in the learning process. Everyone enjoys different styles of playing and the sooner we can figure out what you're excited about, the quicker you'll learn the materials to meet your goals.

Jason is easy-going, reliable and consistent. My son enjoys his lessons and looks forward to them each week. His skills have slowly and steadily been progressing (more practice on his own would surely help his learning speed up). We are thankful to have found Jason.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've had some great guitar teachers in my life and I've learned a lot from them about music and playing the guitar. I will use what my teachers taught me to help you or your child learn how to play the guitar. I teach beginning to advanced players (except for classical guitar which I teach beginning to intermediate levels), kids and adults, and will work with you in a fun and challenging environment to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment. I am a very calm and friendly teacher who will make our lessons fun while also encouraging you to make progress. I will strive to keep you motivated to improve and will document your progress with the use of technology like audio recordings and video so you can see and hear your progress as well as learn from your mistakes. I like to work from guitar method books so we can establish specific and measurable goals, but I do respect and accommodate different learning styles. And, of course, we will work progressively on any songs ...

About Mark

Dear Students and Parents,
You have come to the right guitar teacher if you are looking to start playing guitar, if you are giving a gift to someone to start lessons, or if you have played for a while and are looking to take your playing to the next level. I am an accomplished guitarist with a Performance Degree from Southern Methodist University with a passion for helping others learn and grow. I am a very calm, patient and encouraging teacher. I have the gift of taking someone with either no experience or a lot of experience and help them to realize their dream of playing better, either just for fun or for playing in front of an audience. I make lessons fun and enjoyable and at the same time challenging so that my students can see---and hear---their playing improve.
Making music makes me happy and I want to share that experience with

you or your child on the guitar. The guitar is a great instrument for sharing the joy of making music.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my page and I hope to see you soon!

Mark F.

I believe that there is always room for improvement. I continue to look for new ways to improve my own playing. I am sure that I will be learning some things from you, too, so let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I currently teach in the living room of my home while my basement music room is being remodeled. I provide a music stand, a metronome, a tuner and recording capability so students can see and hear themselves play. I expect the student to bring his or her own instrument and to purchase the book(s) that we'll be working from.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a small amp for electric guitar if the student doesn't have one. I expect the
student to provide his or her own instrument, a music stand, and to

*** Specialties ***
I can teach you to play guitar in any style of music that you want to play, from folk to rock, country to classical and bluegrass to contemporary Christian. I specialize in fingerstyle acoustic guitar that I have adapted from my many years of classical guitar training, but I also love to play the electric guitar, too.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar for over 12 years & spend most of my professional & personal life doing so. I'm fluent in nearly every style of music in the Western world (as well as some from the East, such as Celtic music, ragas & Japanese traditional music).

About Alex

Hey, my name is Alex. I'm a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, Oud, bouzouki, keyboards, voice, drums, flute, etc.), composer, performer, recording artist, arranger/orchestrator/transcriber, recording engineer/producer & music educator.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas "Cum Laude" in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, with minors in Music Production & Composition. While attending St. Thomas I served as the Music Theory tutor, as well as the live sound/stage/light/recording technician for student & faculty recitals.

I have been playing professionally & teaching for over a decade. My passion for music is something that I love to share with anyone else who feels inclined to make music. My goal is to share the skills & knowledge I've acquired throughout my experiences with those willing to learn & dedic

ate themselves to the craft of making music.

I am a full-time member of Maiden Dixie (country/rock; guitar/vocals), Sumo Seven (Funk; bass/vocals), & Armadillo Tank (Prog rock; guitar/vocals). Along with my solo band, I perform for numerous pit orchestras, bands, tributes, & artists around the Twin Cities area.

In February 2019, I released my debut solo album, "Sonic Chef's Circus Absurdities".

*** Lesson Details ***
I am an experienced gigging musician in most major genres of music: classical, jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk, metal, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, instrumental rock, "shred," pop, world music, electronica, etc. & feel comfortable conveying the techniques, approaches & idioms to a student by breaking them down into digestible components, while making these new ideas relatable to material they are already familiar with.

In the end, I want the student to learn what they're most interested in learning. I'm here to answer any questions they may have & with my experiences, I feel confident that I will be able to either answer these questions or point them in the right direction. Some topics covered:

Scales/modes
Ear training
Instrument-specific techniques (ie bending, tapping, sweep picking, etc.)
Songwriting & Composition
Arranging & Orchestrating
Sight-reading
Improvisation
Chordal theory & how to read charts
Practice routines & approaches
Instrument maintenance
Instrument-based gear (guitars, amplifiers, effects, picks, slides, capos, etc.)

The student will learn at the pace they set for themselves & can only get out of it the amount of effort they put forth. I expect my students to practice on a regular basis (however brief each session may be). Consistency is key for progress to be made, & if they hold up their end of the bargain, the payoffs will be quite substantial!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice amplifier, tuner, music stand(s), guitar picks & cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitar neck paper. I expect the students to have their own instrument & any materials they may need to achieve the goals they've set for themselves (such as a weekly notebook).

*** Specialties ***
Progressive rock, classic rock, blues, jazz, funk, disco, classical, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, flamenco guitar; music theory, sight-reading, composition, songwriting, film scoring, music production.

Private Guitar Teacher

As a self-taught guitarist who later went to college for music and now runs a guitar curriculum blog, I tailor all my lessons to the student's age, ability level, music interests, and preferred learning style. No matter what Riffs, Parts, Changes, and Improvisational skills you want to learn, I can teach you, but more than that, I can teach you how guitarists teach themselves.

About Richard

Rick's been teaching Guitar, Banjo, and Ukulele at his home, and at the Mount Olivet School of Music in South Minneapolis, ever since graduating with a degree in Music from the University of Minnesota Duluth in 2003. He plays around town in 3 bands and also does the occasional Pit Orchestra and Wedding gig. He also taught at Dayjams Rock Music camp in St. Paul for the five summers of its existence. In his spare time he writes YA Stories and Musicals, he also runs a Songwriting and Music Theory Blog about Tonal Trends in popular music, a Guitar Curriculum Blog based on Karate Belts, and is a regular contributor to the music magazine Flypaper by Soundfly.

*** Lesson Details ***
Depending on student interest, lessons can consist of Ear Training, Improv/Jamming, learning Popular Guitar Riffs/Changes/Parts/Etc., Note Reading, the Music Biz

, and learning about all the cool new Music Technologies of the day. Rick also loves to transcribe any and all music the student wants to learn but for which they cannot find the sheet music or internet tab. Rick prefers to teach what the student wants to learn, but if they're not sure what that is, he helps them figure that out.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Wifi, Computer, and iPhone. I make good use of technology during lessons. Much used apps include Yousician, Anytune Phrase Trainer, TabPro, and the Guitar Toolkit (metronome, tuner, etc.)

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music Stand (if needed), and iPhone apps.

*** Specialties ***
Music Theory and Songwriting.

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 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.

Guitar Lessons in Minneapolis

If you're considering taking guitar lessons in Minneapolis – congratulations! With patience and a good guitar instructor, you will find playing guitar to be very fun and rewarding. The ability to play music is something you can enjoy your entire lifetime and pass on to new generations. Playing guitar and learning to play music keeps your mind sharp, your fingers nimble, and can bring joy to family, friends, and complete strangers. Being located in Minneapolis is a bonus, as the Twin Cities is a very music-friendly community, as Prince and many other musicians know very well.

What You’ll Need to Learn Guitar

When you undertake guitar lessons in Minneapolis, you will need some standard gear to make the learning process much easier. You’ll need at least one, or preferably two, guitars of good to excellent quality and at least one good case or gig bag to protect them while going to and from your lessons (and, eventually, gigs). You also should have a guitar stand for each guitar you buy, to lessen the potential for dropping or damaging it when you aren’t using it.

A music stand will be needed to hold up your sheet music or guitar tablature and make it easier to practice and play. Guitar picks are essential items, and buying an assortment can help you to determine which one feels and plays the best for you. If you choose to play electric guitar, you will need a good practice amp and a guitar cable long enough to allow you to sit or stand comfortably while practicing. You’ll also need oil to keep your fretboard in good condition and help to prevent cracking or splitting.

Where to Buy Guitars in Minneapolis

There are many great places to buy guitars when you’re taking guitar lessons in Minneapolis. Twin Town Guitars on South Lyndale Avenue has new and used guitars and specializes in Fender and Gretsch brands (http://www.twintown.com/Store/pc/home.asp). Additionally, El Diablo Amps & Guitars on Broadway features custom and a large lineup of used and vintage electric and acoustic guitars (http://eldiabloamps.com/). The popular guitar store also offers a wide range of pedals and amplifiers.

Best Sources for Guitar Setup and Repair

Once you have your new guitar and are taking guitar lessons in Minneapolis, it’s just a matter of time before you will need to have it maintained. A good rule of thumb is to have your guitars worked on at least once or twice per year. When your guitar is maintained, a specialist will ensure the neck has the proper relief, the intonation is correct, and the action is smooth, which will make it play much better and with less effort.

Because of its large community of musicians and guitarists, the Twin Cities offers many excellent guitar techs and luthiers. Among the best places to take your guitar for maintenance or repairs is Leonard Shapiro Guitar Repair on Wabash Avenue across the river in St. Paul.

Another highly rated guitar repair shop is Madison’s Guitars on Northeast Central Avenue. Madison’s is noted for doing outstanding work in a reasonable amount of time and for a fair price. Twin Town Guitars, Willie’s American Guitars, The Podium, and El Diablo Amps & Guitars also are also known for high quality service.

Great Venues and Guitar Events

Staying inspired to continue taking guitar lessons in Minneapolis is easy to do when you attend the area’s many great venues and events. Among the best places to see a great show is First Avenue, where Prince cut his teeth and eventually became world-famous (http://first-avenue.com/). The club features many of the best touring acts in the nation, as well as the best local artists playing a wide range of musical styles. Cabooze on Cedar Avenue is another popular venue for live music in an intimate setting (http://www.cabooze.com/). The Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul and the Target Center in Minneapolis host the most popular touring acts in the United States and world.
