My name is Kohl Aldjo and I am a graduate of Indiana University's School of Music where I studied Classical Guitar & Music Theory. I have been playing guitar for over 30 years and have over 25 years teaching experience. Through the years I have taught at Wildwood Music in Longmont & Louisville, Keith Music in Longmont, the CMIC in Longmont, Universal Music in Thornton, Intermezzo Music Academy in Westminster, and the Music Education Center in Northglenn.
As a teacher, I have a very straight forward, easy-to-progress approach that works great with any age of student ranging from beginning to advanced levels in the styles of Acoustic, Electric, Finger Picking, Blues, Rock, Folk, Classical, & Celtic Fingerstyle.

Showing a student a new technique or exercise that will become a song at the next lesson!
I also enjoy making difficult musical concepts easy to understand.
Kohl is an excellent guitar teacher and mentor to our 15-year-old son. He constantly challenges him with new material, and his knowledge of guitar theory and history is extensive. We are very pleased with our son's growth, interest, and dedication to the instrument, due in large part to Kohl's teaching skills and personality.
Kohl is an excellent guitar teacher! He has a well thought-out and thorough method of instruction that can be catered to any ability level from absolute beginner to advanced. I wanted to learn about music and fretboard theory rather than just songs, and Kohl has helped my progress tremendously. Nice, comfy home studio. For youth or adult learners I highly recommend!!!
I have been working with Kohl for the past 2 months and it has been a pleasure. Before we started Kohl had asked me what I would like to learn and has tailored our lesson exactly to that with extra things he believes will benefit me. I have had a couple instructors before and none have taught me what Kohl has. $25 for a lengthy 30 minute lesson every week is well worth it. I highly recommend him for any level of guitar player.
Getting down the basics; chords, scales, and note reading. All techniques and excersices are geared towards learning songs. And this all comes together very quickly!
I have a degree from a highly respected music school, many years of teaching experience, and have played live gigs for over 20 years.
My rates are my the month so half hour lessons are $100 and 45 minute lessons are $140. I also give a slight discount on the 5th lesson of the month if there is one.
A friend recommended me to a store in Longmont that was in need of a good instructor.
Young, old, new, experienced, boys & girls.
Clearly explaining the circle of 5ths to a tean age student that had been repeatedly confused by other teachers!
By taking lessons with me you'll make the most progress in the least amount of time! In depth musical concepts will seem straight forward and easy to understand.
What are your goals? What type of player do you want to be and how good do you want to be at it?
