Kimberly H

Instruments:

Cello is my main instrument, but I have also been teaching piano, guitar, and violin for years.  I love teaching and the variety of finding the approach that works best for each individual student.  On a personal note, I was married in 2010 and had my first child, a boy, a year later.  I live in Northfield but commute up to the Eden Prairie/Chanhassen area for lessons every Monday.  I am also open to giving lessons at people's homes who are close to Highway 35 on the way to or from the Cities.

Jesse K

Instruments:

I am a passionate instructor who brings real life playing experience to every lesson. I have been playing bass and guitar since I was six years old. I have played classical, jazz, rock, reggae, and funk music on stages around the world. Currently I can be found gigging several nights a week around the Minneapolis area's finest venues, such as: the Fine Line, Famous Daves, and the Dakota. Wether it is jazz bass in a classy venue, or greasy guitar lines in a dancehall, I bring passion and joy to every note played.

Michael M

Instruments:

I have been performing since age 7 playing classical piano in recitals with my sister. I got my first guitar at the age of 12. At 15 I was playing around town with different bands. After years of playing in garage bands, I applied to Wayne State University and enrolled in their music department. I have a variety of musical experiences to draw from which is a benefit to my students.

Nathan S

Instruments:

I have been playing guitar and studying music theory since the age of 13. I taught myself to read tab in a guitar magazine before I actually got my first guitar. I took private lessons in high school and learned from the lessons in magazines like Guitar For The Practicing Musician and Guitar Player. When I moved to Minneapolis in 1995 I stopped into Music Tech to check out their guitar department and after playing for their recruiter Lance I was quickly signed up for the next semesters classes that started a week later. The experience at Music Tech was amazing; starting with a class of 25 plus guitarists and beeing one of only six that graduated was a great accomplishment. Music Tech helped me learn the ins and outs of music theory playing different styles of music and playing in ensembles that greatly varied from the bands I was used to playing in. Since graduating I have played in several local bands, taught private lessons, and performed in many venues in the Twin Cities. I have also had the pleasure of performing classical pieces in weddings for friends and family.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students are encouraged to start their guitar lessons by playing half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitars. Using an electric guitar is a viable alternative for older students who are able to hold the instrument with comfort. A student model guitar bought from new will cost in the vicinity of $150 - $200. For electric guitar players, amplification and guitar cables are required, which will need to be purchased at an additional cost. As a general rule, the higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. This is important as it affords the student the best possible chance of enjoying playing and learning the guitar.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
Adults wanting to learn how to play the guitar may find it beneficial to have a clear goal in mind when starting their lessons. Beginner students may wish to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or an advanced player might like to develop a technical aspect of their guitar playing. Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. Learning and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time, but with regular lessons and practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and be well on your way to achieving your goals.
Students can start as young as age 6 with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to handle a full size guitar around ages 10-12, which is when many students become interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric.
