Play Me A Song


My name is Ed Nilsen and I teach guitar and voice from my studio in Mission Viejo, CA.  My method is song based - teaching chords, strumming and picking patterns all for the purpose of playing songs.  We start with the simple stuff and progress from there.  We encourage public performance and will occasionally take students to a local coffee house to entertain.  I have a music education degree from Cal State Fullerton with a vocal/choral emphasis.  In addition to teaching private music lessons, I’m also the music director at Taft Avenue Community Church in Orange, CA.  I write and record music, too, with my wife, Roxanne.   You can check us out on iTunes or Rhapsody.  Thanks for stopping by the website and I look forward to hearing from you.
