Hello and thank you for checking out my profile! My name is Ethan Elseth and I'm 22 years old. Originally raised in the northwestern tip of Minnesota, I moved to St. Paul to pursue a degree(s) in music after receiving a scholarship to McNally Smith College of Music. I am an active performer in the Twin cities area playing freelance and with the Adam Meckler Orchestra and Mariah Mercedes band. I'm comfortable playing a wide range of styles, but play mostly contemporary Jazz, Fusion, Classical, and Rock/Blues. I work closely with Grammy-nominated producer/arranger Andy Thompson (Taylor Swift/Jeremy Messersmith) and composer/arranger Adi Yeshaya (The Voice, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston). My ultimate love is composing music for orchestra and jazz ensemble. Composers and guitarists that have influenced me the most are Allan Holdsworth, Pat Metheny, Sergei Rachmaninoff, John Williams, Randy Rhoads, and Adrien Moignard. Please let me share my knowledge and passion for music with you today!
I teach guitar, piano, composition, and Ukulele at St. Paul School of Music in West St. Paul, Minnesota.
I teach guitar, piano, ukulele, and composition in the lessons department in Roseville, Minnesota.
· Guitar · In home Fourth lesson in with Ethan and absolutely love it! I was recommended by a friend to try him out and don't regret it one bit! I wanted to learn more about music theory and how I can pair it effectively with my guitar playing and composing.
· Guitar · In studio Ethan's personality and teaching approach has made the last 3 months of learning guitar very enjoyable and inspiring! His playing and compositions amazed me from the very first lesson. His teaching environment is very beautiful and professional (he lives in an artist loft) I've recommended him to friends who've started taking lessons with him as well! :)
