Anders Nilsson

Guitarist and composer Anders Nilsson moved from his native Sweden to New York in 2000 and has made an impression as a unique and versatile guitarist as leader of Anders Nilsson's AORTA, and Fulminate Trio from Brooklyn. His charcteristic guitar playing can often be heard with singer Fay Victor , and he has performed and/or recorded with such artists as Ken Filiano, Elliot Sharp, Fay Victor, Sabir Mateen, Paquito D’Rivera, Gerald Cleaver, Raoul Bjorkenheim, Eugene Chadbourne, Hamid Drake, Charlie Burnham, George Schuller, John Sinclair, Angelblood and has composed music for film, dance and theatre.

“Anders Nilsson, a guitarist-composer comfortable with everything from free improvisation to avant-garde metal, traverses ghostly mood-setting, bluesy twang and overdriven riffage” - Time Out, New York “Anders Nilsson's AORTA Ensemble features an exceptional ensemble with a clear and focused vision” -Eyal Harueveni All About Jazz. (on AORTA “Blood”): “This is one of the best electric jazz discs I've heard in a long while.” (on Fulminate Trio) “All I can say is Wow! - Bruce Lee Gallanter/Downtown Music Gallery, NYC “Nilsson's shimmering axe evokes a dimensional warp.” - Signal to Noise “Swedish-born guitarist Anders Nilsson plucks spidery figures and dissonant clusters that loom like an overcast sky.” - Timeout Chicago “Sultry swagger” -Thurston Moore /Arthur Magazine

Location:
Brooklyn, NY

Credentials/Background:
I teach and am currently accepting students! Over the years I have developed a successful and stimulating approach to studying the guitar and developing musical understanding. My message and method ultimately seeks for the student to develop a relationship with music wherein you will "be the note". In other words, the aim is beyond a mere riff or song every week, rather to gain insights and experiences that will last longer, be more rewarding and creatively engaging. Stylewise we may be speaking the common languages in use be it rock, blues, jazz, classical, metal, or beyond. As far as content goes I have a vast bank of material in all musical areas – technique, rhythm, melody, harmony, reading, ear training, improvisation and soloing that will be beneficial regardless of the student’s proficiency level. I have 15 years of professional teaching experience and have taught players from the very young up to seniors, individually and in groups, privately, in music schools, at music stores, public schools, and given master classes at universities. Holding two degrees: a BA in music pedagogy, and an MA in Jazz performance from City College, New York, NY. I am flexible with my method, will listen to you, and offer reasonable pricing. If you are interested in taking lessons email me at Earraticart@gmail.com Looking forward to hearing from you! -Anders Here is a link to my site incl. student testimonials: http://www.andersnilssonguitar.com/lessons/
