Greetings! I am a private music instructor based in Minneapolis, MN. I teach drums, piano, guitar and mixing.
I have been playing drums for 18 years, and am expertly versed in jazz, funk, rock, pop, latin and reggae. I have a degree in Music Business from Winona State University, where I studied percussion under the incredible Dr. Rich MacDonald. I have taught freelance lessons for 8 years to students of every age and level. I have a passion for individual, customized instruction for each student, in order to ensure as rich and fulfilling of an experience as possible. In addition to drums, I have 11 years of experience playing guitar, 13 years playing piano, and am also a freelance composer and sound designer for video games. I have 10 years of mixing and production experience. Music is my life, and I love sharing that passion with others! Here are some testimonials from students I've had the pleasure of teaching:
Karl is an amazing teacher whose love of music radiates out from within."
Karl is a fantastic instructor. Lessons are fun, insightful and his passion for drums is infectious. I've seen my playing and understanding improve dramatically after taking lessons with him. Highly recommended!"
KARL IS THE BEST! He is not only extremely talented at guitar, but also well versed in music theory. His classes are fun, challenging, and very informative. Thanks Karl!"
It has been a real pleasure to learn piano from Karl. He has a great way of tapping into my personal musical interests, while also challenging me to grow. I always look forward to our lessons!"
