Nic has been doing guitar lessons with my daughter for 3 years now and we couldn't be more pleased. Thursday is my daughter's favorite day of the week. Nic hasn't just taught her guitar but has given her a love for music. He uses songs that she knows and loves. Practice isn't something I have to remind her of but she joyfully pulls out her guitar daily and I owe that to Nic. Nic is knowledgeable of all sorts of music (piano, voice, etc) so is able to bring a holistic approach to his lessons. He is also very flexible working around a busy family and chaotic teenage schedule. If you are looking for guitar lessons you have found your guy!
Coming from a 5 year orchestral background, I thought there was little guitar lessons would have to offer me, but I was quickly proven wrong when I started taking lessons from Mike. The amount of depth I had left untouched was astonishing to discover as we started with scales ranging from blues to classic, chord structure and how they were interchangable, and later applying my newfound knowledge to songs from artists like Clapton, Stevie Ray, Chili Peppers and many more. My only regret is not having started lessons sooner.
My six year daughter has been taking piano lessons with Christian for about a month now. I am so impressed with everything he has taught her! Christian is a very talented musician,but more importantly he is a exceptional teacher!
Though performance music lessons I was able to find an excellent teacher and get started on a new instrument
Michael May is an excellent guitar teacher. I started with Mike recently and not only has my playing already dramatically improved, but my overall knowledge of how music works has greatly increased as well. Michael has a great ability to make very difficult concepts understandable, and he is well-prepared for each lesson. He is also a superb guitar player in his own right. I have taken guitar lessons at Twin Town, Blackbird's, several private instructors I found on CraigsList and am also currently taking a Minneapolis Community Education guitar class. I can honestly say that Michael is vastly superior to all the instructors I have previously taken. Sign up with Michael today!!
My 12-year old son took guitar lessons from Rachel last summer. She was recommended to me by a friend. He had already had about 3 years of guitar with another teacher. As a parent I liked: how she set the schedule up, the price, her willingness to be flexible with scheduling conflicts, and her balance of playfulness/teaching with lessons. My son liked: the bead system to reinforce practicing, learning chords vs. strumming method, having input into music choice, and comfort of the lesson location. I do not know Rachel well personally, but I was impressed with how organized she was. You can tell she loves music and she is good with children.
I've worked with Dan for several months taking classical guitar lessons and have really enjoyed it. He's a good patient teacher and works hard to help you learn the type of music you want to. Highly recommended!
We are grateful that Brady is in our daughter's life. She absolutely loves her guitar lessons with Brady! We appreciate his talent, his ability to teach at her level and how he keeps her motivated with a wonderful mix of technical and fun popular music. With both parents and students, Brady has great communication skills and a wonderful "open door" attitude.
I provide guitar lessons. The lessons consist of ear training, improvisation, jamming, composing skills, learning popular guitar riffs, changes, parts and if the interest exists, note reading. I also love to transcribe music the student wants to learn but cannot find on sheet music or Internet tabs (as there can be limited availability in the realm of pop/rock sheet music.) All in all, I prefer to teach what the student wants to learn, but if they're not quite sure what that is, I help them figure that out. I have M.O.S.O.M. studio equipment. I have Wi-Fi, computer and an iPhone. I make good use of technology during lessons. My most used apps include Guitarbots, Slow Down Music Trainer, Tab Pro and the GuitarToolkit (metronome, tuner, etc.), also sheet music is provided. I have home studio equipment. It's much the same, except my home Wi-Fi is faster. I have travel equipment. I have a music stand, iPhone with apps and sheet music. I create students' web pages. Through my website, I provide each student with their own webpage where we can keep track of what they've accomplished and what we're working on, as well as post MP3s of what we've worked up and recorded. I make educational web videos for my music theory and songwriting vlog called TonalTrends.com. Check it out if you'd like to learn some of the nuts and bolts of songwriting. I also have a guitar curriculum blog called Guitarate.com, "what to play, what to teach." I have the experience. I play around town in several bands (Brian Just Band, Como Ave Jug Band, Four Pints Shy) and also do the occasional musical pit orchestra and wedding gig. I also taught at DayJams Rock Music Camp in St. Paul for the five summers of its existence. In my spare time, I write YA stories and musicals, two of which have been produced at Highlands, Edina. Here is my biography. I grew up in the home of a flute teacher. By the age of 12, I figured out that "middly-middly-mee" was way cooler than "tootie-toot-toot," so I stole my dad's rusty-stringed Yamaha out of the attic and started figuring out Led Zeppelin and Nirvana riffs with the help of my buddies and this brand new thing called "Internet tabs." I played in some alternative rock and punk bands through high school and college music but since graduation, I've drifted more towards folky-type stuff. Now that I'm in my 30s, I've started writing musicals, two of which have been performed in the Edina public school system and which I hope to get published someday.
I have been teaching since 1994, and have had hundreds of students of all ages, levels, and styles. I have a bachelor's degree in guitar performance, have extensive knowledge in many styles of guitar playing, and perform regularly with a variety of musical projects.

It would seem I'm being hassled to be a guitar tutor which I accept only because I love music and guitar and all that mumble jumble. I can give guitar lessons to some extent and help with stuff you want to learn. I am a lead metal guitarist by heart and so that is what I can teach best. Concerning what you want to learn and if you are already very good to the point where your pared or passed me, all I can do is point to another teacher.
