About this pro

I have a degree in classical guitar, one year of jazz studies at the University of Minnesota, and I have three decades of experience playing and teaching anything from classical to rock, blues, jazz, folk, country, bluegrass, and more.
I offer private guitar lessons in my home studio in St. Paul / Woodbury / Oakdale / Maplewood / White Bear Lake area.  
I tailor my lessons to fit every student individually, and I teach students of all ages.
I live and work as a professional musician and educator in the Twin Cities since 1991.
Please visit my website and my YouTube channel to find out more about me and my music.

To be working with children, young adults and adults who are passionate about music, and who are eager to learn, or to improve their guitar playing, is so rewarding!!

    Pavel has been a wonderful guitar teacher for my son the the last several years. My son started as a beginner guitar player and has improved significantly. With his recommendation, we purchased a good quality guitar at the that sounds great without spending a ton of money. Pavel's hourly rate is reasonable and he has been flexible with changing schedule and lesson plan. We have introduced others to Pavel for guitar lessons and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good teacher.

    What makes Pavel special as a guitar teacher is his ability and willingness to guide you in the musical direction you want to go in. He doesn't dictate but instead shares with you the ideas and techniques that will help you achieve your own musical goals. His abilities as a player and teacher cover a wide range of musical genres. Working with him would benefit players from beginners to the accomplished. Smart, warm and funny, Pavel takes an interest in you as a person and not just as a student. My love of the guitar and my musical horizons in general have undergone an enormous transformation since working with Pavel. He can do the same for you.
