Introduction: Greetings, my name is Brent. I am a guitar & music theory instructor who resides in St. Paul, MN, but I am offering guitar lessons to students in any location via Zoom (or other telecom service that may suit the student). I have a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, and I have taught for over 16 years. Details and skillset: - I teach age 8 up to adult and beginner to advanced players. - Main styles I play/teach: Pickstyle and Fingerstyle, Rock/Blues (Beatles, Jimi Hendrix...), Jazz (improv, exotic harmonies...), Classical (Beethoven, Chopin...), Metal (arpeggio sweeps, speed techniques...), and a bit of everything in between (Bossa Nova, Country, East Indian...). - I discuss and work with each student to help them meet their desired musical goals. I often write out PDF lessons that are catered to the student's specific musical needs and understanding. Various materials I provide include chords, scales, arpeggios, rhythm, left + right hand techniques, note reading, music theory, improvisation, thousands of song transcriptions, etc. I can also recommend some really great music books. - Lessons could be weekly, every other week, or even scheduled one-off lessons. I have various time slots available everyday.

Brent started teaching my son guitar when he was ten years old and experiencing fairly widespread bullying at his school. As a result, he was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Brent's consistent presence, always on time and prepared, became a weekly ray of sunshine. My son responded overwhelmingly to his guitar education and six years later, and a change of schools, he's a proficient guitarist with all emotional and social problems in our rear view mirror. And through it all, Brent has brought his enormous skill and knowledge of teaching young people into my family's life. We very highly recommend Brent if you're searching for a private guitar instructor.
