My son had his first lesson with Laura today. He felt she was very nice and taught him well.
Lily
She helped me with a prior piece and actually taught me the original version of it. She then helped me play better and faster.
Julia
My son, Dominick, has taken voice lessons with Laura for a few months at the School of Rock. He made great progress and was able to perform nicely. He feels very close to Laura and misses her a lot and can't wait to learn with her again when he's back in town.

About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 500, in my experience, with just a little bit of practice each day anyone can learn to play guitar. Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live.

I started with Nils after self teaching through YouTube, and would consider myself about an intermediate. I hit a point in my playing where I no longer had a good idea of how to get where I wanted to go. Nils has been really helpful in giving me direction towards my goals and exploring new guitar concepts through songs. He has a wide knowledge and has encouraged me to learn multiple styles, as well as improvisation which I used to shy away from. It’s really been invaluable to have someone like Nils as a guide in your guitar journey
Anirban M.
Nils has been working with our son for a little over the past month, and we are very happy in finding such a talented teacher. Our son has some music background, having taken some guitar instruction in the past, so Nils was pretty quick to pick up on where he is musically and right off the bat work how to adjust to his needs. His lessons are a good mix of theory and application, and we can see how they (the lessons) are progressing in terms of complexity and reach. While we, the parents, are very happy to let them work out the lessons themselves, Nils has taken great care in keeping us in the loop, and we certainly appreciate that as parents. Certainly looking forward to how these guys progress!

Nils is a great teacher. He has really advanced my music theory knowledge.

Online Music Theory Teacher

I currently am going to school for music and intend to get my bachelor's in music theory and composition. I've had several semesters of music theory, sight singing, ear training, piano and guitar. I also play ukulele and percussion. I offer skill practice in reading/writing music notation, theory, rhythm training, solfege singing, and performing practices. I'm extremely passionate about this subject and it is one of my favorites to teach. Music theory is about the fundamentals in music that enable you to deconstruct any piece. Furthering your knowledge in this field will help you succeed in any music talent whether that be instrumental, voice, songwriting, etc.

About Baileigh

Hello! My name is Baileigh. I've been playing guitar for 8 years now. Along the way I have learned piano, ukulele, bass guitar, and fundamentals for percussion. I'm currently going to school for music, which I hope will help me pursue a career in music composition and songwriting. Aside from music,

"I was a music student at Azusa Pacific University and Adam Tune helped me with Music Theory for two semesters. He is very knowledgeable of the subject, and has a clear, friendly, and logical teaching approach that makes the experience fun. He can explain topics and concepts in a way that is easy to understand.
He is also very knowledgeable in music composition, arranging, and in the use of Logic Pro software that he could use while teaching theory."

"I had started taking gigs with new bands but I was struggling with my sight reading and general music theory. I found Kellen through a friend and I'm so glad. He was friendly and super knowledgeable and I felt like it all clicked all of a sudden. I was able to learn easily online from my home in Portland. I keep taking lessons with him because I keep learning great tips about performance and theory. He's also really funny. Kellen's awesome!"

Not only Mya is the best Italian teacher I've had (she's very detailed oriented and helps me tremendously with my pronunciation) but she's also an experienced and skilled music teacher. After only a few classes, I was able to play decent music with my violin!"
