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.

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

For young beginner students, it is recommended that they start their guitar lessons by playing on a half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. If they can do so comfortably, older students may like to start off with a full-sized acoustic or electric guitar. There are a variety of different student model guitars available that from new, will cost between $150 - $200. This price does not include the costs of amplification or guitar cables, which will also need to be purchased for those wanting to play electric guitar. Students are more likely to have fun learning the guitar if they find it easy to play. Consider purchasing the highest quality instrument possible as these often feel nicer to use and are easier to play.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
For students looking to start learning to play the guitar, we recommend that they do so with a particular goal in mind. You may wish to learn how to play your favorite songs, develop your compositional abilities or music theory. Maybe you are an advanced player wanting to take their playing to the next level? Whatever the goal, our experienced teachers can help bring these wishes to life. It takes time to learn and develop your guitar playing, and may take a couple of months before you start to achieve your aims. The best way to guarantee you meet your goals is through regular practice and lesson time.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years of age. Students in this age category will start of by learning to play simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar. It is most comfortable for students of this age to start off by playing a half sized acoustic guitar with nylon strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. When students get to about 10-12 years old, they may become interested in a specific genre (usually rock) and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
