I have taught guitar classes with 20 people in them and I have also taught one on one with a retired professor! Lots of experience teaching guitar to all ages!
No need to be nervous before my lessons. My lessons have a comfortable atmosphere where students can be okay with learning with mistakes; through trial and error. I always keep a light mood with quick bits of humor. I teach in a relaxing way, but at the same time you may expect to leave with new musical knowledge every lesson. I enjoy showing the connections between music and other areas of study and life. I always finds ways to work a student's personal interests into lessons. I always strive to help students learn how to practice in an efficient and organized way.
I am a published composer and active performer/teacher/conductor with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and a Master's Degree in Conducting!

I graduated with a BA in jazz studies from Columbia in 2007 and have been teaching since 2005. I have played in many different projects, covering many styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin, Hip hop, classical, orchestral, and country. So, I have a strong understanding on the specifics of each of these styles, and a big part of my lesson plan is to teach my students to be as versatile as possible. Hence they have many options as far as playing music. I also play a wide variety of instruments including Piano, Latin Percussion, Mallets, Drum set, Guitar, and bass, so if at any point a student has an interest in trying something different t they have many options.

I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Kindermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his lyrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.
I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also ...
My teaching methods would be based from Hal Leonard's Guitar Method Books 1 & 2, with the CDs included. Depending on the student's level of knowledge, we start from where he or she is with their instrument. Then we would work our way up from there.
I've been playing guitar since I was 13 years old, and I've been in many local bands since then. After high school, I went on to extend my education in music in both MATC and Carroll University. I'm currently in a blues-rock band from Milwaukee called "Jonny T-Bird & the MPs." We perform almost everywhere in Southeastern WI at least 3-5 times a month. I hope to eventually make my music career a full time job. My curriculum would be based from Hal Leonard's Guitar Method Book 1 & 2. I've mostly been teaching beginner guitar students. I am open to teach beginner bass guitar.
