Featured St paul Guitar Teachers

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.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

If possible, it is beneficial for younger students to begin their learning on a smaller sized guitar. Half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars are most suitable for young learners. Provided they are comfortable with holding the guitar, older students can start on an electric model. There are a range of different model guitars that are suitable for students, and can be found between the $150 to $200 price range. Remember though, that electric guitarists will need amplification and cables, which need to be purchased at additional costs. The best chance a student will have of liking and enjoying their guitar playing is to invest in good, high quality instruments, as they tend to be easier to play.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the guitar do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite tunes, learn to compose your own music, develop a new technique or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time. With regular lessons and plenty of practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and will be well on your way to achieving your goals.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical guitar will be the easiest and most comfortable model for younger students to play, and at this age students will be learning to play simple tunes on the top strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age range, they are likely to want to learn how to play rock music on an electric guitar, and should be comfortable playing a full sized guitar.
