Nels Noel is a dedicated guitarist located in Atlanta, Georgia, who started his musical journey at the age of 8. Originally born in Topeka, Kansas, Nels is passionate about working with kids and improving his and his student's ability at guitar. He has played live for the Mount Pisgah Worship Band and has studied under professional guitarists such as Rick Taylor and Lori Buonamici. Following the methods in which he was taught, he puts more emphasis on the mechanical/skillful aspects of playing guitar when teaching, so that students are able to progress quickly. Ultimately, it is his goal for students to find growth and love in playing music.
As stated earlier, Nels is passionate about working with kids. He works at Camp Lighthouse during his summers, which is a camp given for free to underprivileged kids who otherwise couldn’t afford it. There, he leads his campers in playing games, swimming, fishing, singing and dancing, and exploring the campsite. It is his favorite time of the year. He also volunteers with 2nd graders weekly and has traveled to Alaska to work with kids for VBS.
Nels is calm and patient toward his students. He believes any person has the potential to learn how to play guitar well. He can adapt to any student and change his approach to accommodate their needs and learning style.
