Hello, my name is Brent. I am an electric (pickstyle) and classical (fingerstyle) guitar instructor, and I am offering guitar lessons in the general Minneapolis/St. Paul area (I also have a few students in Edina and Golden Valley). I have a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, and I have taught for over 14 years.
- Age 8 up to adult.
- Beginner to advanced players.
- Lessons customizable according to the student's specific desires and tastes.
- Main areas I play/teach: Rock (Beatles, Jimi Hendrix...), Jazz (improv, exotic chords and scales...), Classical (Beethoven, Chopin...), Metal (lots of arpeggio sweeps, speed techniques...), and a bit of everything in between, such as Bossa Nova and East Indian
- Various materials can be provided that cover chords, scales, rhythm, 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.
- My teaching days are every day from 10a-8p.
I prefer to drive to my students' residences from my current North Minneapolis 55412 location. Here are my rates for various driving distances and lesson lengths (including gas/car wear):
- up to 20 miles away: $25/30 min., $33/45 min., $40/60 min.
- over 20 miles away (up to around a half hr. drive): $30/30 min., $38/45 min., $45/60 min.
If you are interested please feel free to text or call me or reply to this ad via email. Initial texts are usually most efficient, wherein we can plan a time that works for the both of us to verbally discuss any questions you may have over the phone. However, you are also welcome to leave a voicemail if you wish, and I will get back to you. Thanks for your interest and have a great day!
