I took guitar lessons from Erich for three years and made such amazing strides in my playing ability. Erich is as knowledgeable as they come and adapted well to my learning style and needs.
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.
Bruce has been an excellent instructor throughout my first year of guitar lessons. He continues to impress me in presenting new ways to learn as well as in regards to being patient in re-instructing a technique or guitar nuance, when I may have forgotten or overlooked something I was previously shown. I would gladly recommend him to any student (adult or otherwise) with the interest in learning guitar.
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!
My 7 yr old son and I have been learning from Jeff for 4 months now. I can definitely say he is very good at what he does and is also very patient with beginners like us ( 40 year old & the other 7:) He has been playing for over 20 years and so knows his stuff. He is constantly trying to find ways to help us understand and learn things more easily. I have a traveling job and have had to reschedule a few times and he has always accommodated that. I strongly recommend Jeff for lessons, no matter what you sort of guitar lessons you are looking for.
Colton came to our house to teach our 12 yo son and 14yo daughter to play guitar. Each lesson is tailored to the child and his/her capabilities. Colton is humble, able, and both of the kids enjoyed working with him. I like his style of giving a free lesson to see if he's a fit. And, he drove to our house. How can you lose?
Mark is patient and skilled professional. He takes time to teach beginners the correct techniques as well as encouraging them to play their instrument. We feel very fortunate to have him as an instructor as our son practiceas and always looks forward to his lesson. (Can not believe this but he has his instrument and in the car before me!)
Over all Dave is a great teacher. So if you are looking to do guitar lessons at the Guitar Shop I recommend Dave
Jonathan is an excellent musician/performer and an excellent music instructor. He designs my guitar lessons to fits my needs as a K-5 elementary music specialist in the public schools. He is patient and kind while maintaining high expectations. I would recommend Jonathan Ehresmann to anyone looking for a high quality music lesson experience.
My 12 & 15 year old sons took beginner guitar lessons with Rachel. I was impressed with what they learned and the price could not have been better. They were motivated and looked forward to their lessons. I liked how she set up the schedule in the beginning of the summer and provided options for any of our normal days that wouldn't work. I wish I had also signed another of my kids up for piano. I chose Rachel because the price was right and I wanted to gauge their interest levels. We will return to Rachel because the price is good AND she's a good music instructor who kept the kids motivated.
My kids have been taking guitar, bass, and drum lessons with Mike for several years. We live in Minneapolis part-time so the kids have lessons both in person, when we are in town, and online when we are out of town. Mike is excellent in both forums. My kids spend all week looking forward to their lessons with Mike. I never have to ask them to practice; the homework Mike assigns is apparently so much fun, they race to their instruments every day and walk around the house with their guitars. As a parent, my favorite thing about Mike is how thoughtful and flexible he is. My kids are very different from one another and do not conform to any standard music curriculum. In other words, they require quite a bit of extra work on a music teacher's behalf. This has never troubled Mike. He provides each of my kids with customized music lessons that work for each child! Including a variety of music theory that is way beyond anything I studied in my many years of piano and theory lessons. We feel incredibly lucky to have Mike in our kids' lives.
I am 50+ guy who is an advanced beginner or early intermediate and have had many "beginner" guitar instructors. I was very pleasantly impressed with Loba and very highly recommend him. He teaches many styles of music but perhaps most importantly he shares with you how to play, to feel the music and express the feeling the music has for you - so you are not only learning a new piece but you are owning it personally through Loba's encouragement and guidance. You take guitar lessons with Loba not from him - it is a shared experience. As person, he is friendly, polite, patient and sensitive; and will share his many experiences with music and people - an education alone. This is a very positive referral, and should be, Loba has earned it and will continue to, hopefully for you!
I've been playing guitar for 11 years and have played in several bands. I'm mostly playing on my own now and want to share my hobby with others.
I help teach you to play beginner to intermediate guitar. I will teach more advanced methods to progressed students.
I am a guitar player with over 16 years of experience. I am accomplished in many different styles such as blues, rock, jazz, and bluegrass. I am offering guitar lessons for beginning to intermediate students in the Minneapolis area. Lessons will focus on music theory, ear training, technique, sight reading and fun (because music is supposed to be fun after all). Over all lessons are tailored around each student's skill level. Music has changed my life by giving me an outlet to my creative self. Please contact me if you are interested in lessons. Let me share the great gift of making music with you.
I have been playing guitar and percussion since at a young age. Ive played in bands on both instruments, marched in drumlines, and played in semi-professional jazz bands. I aim to teach students the essentials and beyond while keeping a close eye on what the student wants to achieve. Please contact me at the number or email address listed!
I have a complete recording studio I teach out of which means I can help students put together demos or work on composing and recording. I can also teach the art of using a loop pedal.

This is my specialty. Please contact me for further details. Thank you.
