Michael N. Oak Creek, WI

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!

About Michael

No need to be nervous before my lessons. I have taught lessons to ages 6 to students in their 70's! (look up my website for your own personal background check!) 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

Music Theory · Online
Verified Student
Mike was very cordial from the first email, and contacted me not long after I had scheduled lessons for the next week. He was very eager to begin teaching, as well as proactive in his communications with me.

As we began, we quickly discovered what areas of music theory that I needed help in. While I did not have a microphone, he was able to explain enlightening concepts to me while being open for questions at any time. He also drew helpful diagrams on a whiteboard as he taught, which granted more clarity.

Afterwards, I received an email with material that I could use to study, and he gave suggestions as to what to apply my knowledge to.

Mike is definitely worth looking into if you want a relaxed, informative and experienced teacher for such a great price.

Great teacher for learning basic to advanced skills!

Gabe is a great teacher to get students started learning their basic skills on piano, drums, guitar or bass. He is really patient and takes the time to make sure the student really learns each specific skill. Gabe picks out exercises that make learning new skills fun and even arranges the students favorite pop tunes to help fit in with the skills being taught. Gabe really makes lessons fun and helps students learn the songs that keep them excited about playing!!

Danny S. Milwaukee, WI

I teach all forms of rock and metal. Theory, rhythm, and lead work. Lets shred!

About Danny

Hello! My name is Danny and I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I have been playing guitar for 15 years, and play in the band ‘Lost In A Name’. I enjoy playing various styles but specialize in rock, metal, and pop. I am happy to teach students any style they want to learn, although I specialize in teaching rockers how to shred! My Teaching Style: My teaching approach is custom tailored to each student I teach. I like to combine teaching technique and skills, with teaching songs that the student wants to learn, and that also use the skills and techniques we are trying to accomplish. I also provide, and create, all the lesson materials each week. No boring music books! No paying for lesson materials as I provide them all! Each lesson is fun, exciting, and challenging at the same time.

About Paul

***My goal as a teacher*** I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them. 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. ***Background*** I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also ...

Acoustic Guitar · In studio
I am a long time student having first started guitar lessons in my late thirties. Thanks to Paul’s patience and expertise, I quickly evolved as a guitar player and all around musician. He has a great studio with a full variety of instruments so it's very convenient to not have to bring one's own instrument if one prefers not to. The studio also has a quality recording system , and I've created numerous professional sounding recordings of my guitar playing as well. Today I enjoy playing bass and guitar in a string band and continue to expand my musical horizons with Paul. I think he is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend him for beginners or intermediate musicians of all ages.

Guitar · In studio
When I decided to take guitar lessons I was a little nervous. I thought that it would be hard for me to learn since I'm no longer a child. What I was thinking was that you can't teach old dogs new tricks, not that I'm an old dog. I decided to do it anyway. Paul made everything easy to learn and I did learn new tricks so to speak. He definitely a good teacher for young and old alike.

I highly recommend this excellent, patient and creative teacher. He helped me grow as a musician and writer. If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated instructor, you will be pleased with Mr. Paul.
Jon N. Milwaukee, WI

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.

About Jon

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.
