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 23 years teaching experience. Over the years I have taught at Wildwood Music in Longmont & Louisville, Keith Music in Longmont, the CMIC in Longmont and the Music Education Center in Northglenn. I am now teaching with an amazing group of instructors at the Intermezzo Music Acadamy located at I25 & 120th which will provide music instruction for the areas of Thornton, Northglenn, Westminster, North Denver, and possibly Broomfield.
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. Email me at... [email protected] or call (720)838-8404 if you would like to check availability, schedule lessons, or if you have any other questions.
My guitar lessons take place at my studio in Westminster.
Guitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Fingerpicking, Slide Guitar, Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment Selection.
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.
My daughter has been a student with Kohl for almost two years now. Not only is she being taught how to play acoustic and electric guitar, she is being exposed to a wide range of musical styles and techniques. She isn't just being taught tablature, she is being taught music theory and how to read music. This knowledge will transfer easily to any instrument she decides to pick up in the future. Practice plans and expectations are written out weekly and are clear and easy to understand. Kohl rocks!
My son has been taking lessons for about six months now. He has learned so much and his skills are growing beyond my expectations. The folks at Intermezzo are very professional and friendly. My son takes electric guitar lessons from Kohl Aldjo. I can't say enough about him! He is extremely child and adult-friendly. He has a love for his work and it comes through in each and everyone of his students. My son looks forward to every lesson each week. I would not think of going anywhere else and would highly recommend Kohl as a guitar teacher.

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.
