Jeff L. Lakeville, MN

Beginners only.

About Jeff

I have been playing guitar for 30 years and teaching guitar and bass on and off since 2001. I owned a music school/store/studio in NY for several years but now live in MN. I work well with kids and enjoy watching them grow as musicians and people. I also like to do "Family/Band" lessons--where we get each member on an instrument (guitar, bass, piano, drums, etc.) and the family/group learns to play songs together--or jam, or write and record their own songs! Since there isn't really a platform for it through this website, my price listed for a "90-minute" lesson is not actually 90 minutes, but rather a 45-minute lesson for a group of up to four people. I primarily offer lessons in my home studio but will consider coming to you if its preferred. I also teach beginner level ...

Nick is great musician and a fun teacher to work with. He was my mandolin instructor in New York this past year. I'm a professional singer who was looking to pick up a new instrument, and Nick was a great teacher. He has a lot of creative strategies for teaching and working with different learning styles, and is great at letting the student set the tone of the lesson. He's extremely knowledgeable, and more important, his love of music and teaching shines through--his lessons are fun!

Nick is a wonderful teacher. He is patient, encouraging, fun, and knowledgeable. Nick also has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, and understands how to connect with a student's individual needs and wishes. I've made progress on my instrument that wouldn't have been possible with Nick's guidance and advice.

If you're looking for a great guitar teacher, take lessons with Nick!

Michael B. Saint Paul, MN

I have had a lot of experience playing basic chords and scales on the mandolin. I wont make you David Grisman but I can help you find it fun and easy to play rhythm and some lead!

About Michael

I have been a bleeding heart singer/songwriter ever since I was a teenager. My main genre being folk/rock, I started playing guitar at the age of 12 and was singing, playing and writing by the time I was 15. Having been through many music classes myself (mainly in college as a temporary music major at the University of Montana), my collection of knowledge with basic theory and composition combined with my extensive experience with mainstream rock songwriting and performance provides the perfect tools necessary for a beginning or intermediate, aspiring music performer. I used to give private lessons in my later teens/ early twenties so I know how to make the experience fun and easy. and am finishing up a BA English degree at Metro State University. My proficiency in reading and writing
