Guitar Lessons


I have been teaching private guitar lessons on a regular basis in the Minneapolis area since the beginning of 1995; beginning students through advanced. I teach electric guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar and electric bass.

I have also taught songwriting and arranging techniques to various students and am very experienced in working with multi-track recording formats. I am currently using Pro Tools.

My particular areas of interest are Blues, Jazz, R&B, Rock and Pop music.
Some of my favorite guitarists and major influences are: Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Wes Montgomery, Les Paul, etc… and many more.

Some of my other influences are; Chicago blues artists from the 1950’s-’60’s, French Hot Club style jazz from the 1930’s-40’s, British rock and psychedelic music of the 60’s as well as jazz from that same period. I like music of all types, if something is played well it will usually catch my ear.

    My wife Heather is a self taught guitarist and singer. She is looking for some formal guitar training from an expert like yourself, and I believe you have played together at a Sarita Woods party. I’m looking to make this a gift for Chistmas. Thanks, Sam
