Beginners will be up and playing songs within a few lessons. Experienced musicians will learn to go deeper into music theory and chordal structures.

About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I am also a special education assistant and assistant wrestling coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South. Jazz piano and vocal instruction are my two main areas of expertise. However, I have also been composing, recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our current day and age.

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

I have been very impressed with Daniel's instruction abilities - he is patient, tuned-in to whether or not I 'get it', and has opened the door to a whole new way to re-learn piano for personal enjoyment.

I heard of Amy when I was in school, looking for a way to get better at my music. She teaches piano, voice and guitar - I was really looking for help in piano. Her teaching skills are awesome! She understands music theory incredibly well, and has clear-cut teaching methods that help you grasp concepts and make feel smarter than you are! I really do recommend her if you are looking for beginning or advanced teaching. She will take you far.

About Paul

I have played the guitar for twenty years and have studied a wide variety of music including jazz, classical, folk, blues and rock. I’m skilled in acoustic, electric and classical styles of the guitar. I have an open mind about music and can appreciate any style or type. I have a firm background on music theory, so I am able to explain what I am teaching. I excelled in all my classes in college, music and Gen Eds, with a GPA over 3.75. I also have experience in teaching guitar or bass to students ranging from the ages of six to sixty six. I enjoy taking what I have learned and passing it on to someone else to experience. I believe this is one way you can leave your mark in music. I believe the experience I have playing in bands, and learning songs with my ability of having ...

Paul is a fabulous instructor!! He is so enthusiastic about what he does and takes his time with our lessons. I have never felt rushed at a lesson and we always use up the entire hour. Paul is also very accommodating when it comes to the practice location. He adjusts his schedule to make it easier for me to commute to the destination of the practice. In addition, Paul picks up music very quickly, so any song you want to learn, he will write the notes down for you and teach you to play it! I highly recommend Paul as an instructor because he is very good at what he does.

I have been taking online lessons with Paul for four months now. He creates focused lessons that not only help my playing but greatly expand my knowledge of theory. He is great at taking your input on what you hope to get out of the lessons. He is very open to working with my busy schedule. The online lessons are a great way for someone with limited free time to playing. I highly recommend taking lessons from Paul.

I have had a few guitar teachers in the past but none as personable and approachable as Paul. It truly makes a difference when you are not afraid to ask questions or not afraid to mess up. Paul worked with me at my pace and met me at my level. In addition to the lessons about guitar Paul is also very knowledgeable about music in general and has been opening me up to new artists. I recommend this teacher for anyone whether they are just starting out or looking to pick up where they left off. Paul's the best!

Chris is a true professional in both his teaching and playing capacity. He is very skillful musician and extremely knowledgeable of composition and theory. Although I'm a seasoned player, I was able to add to my music arsenal and easily improve my technique through Chris' teaching methods. If you're beginner just starting out or an experienced player that simply wants to improve your skills, I highly recommend working with Chris. He's a great teacher that really understands his students and provides the attention and coaching needed to achieve their musical goals. He's also a kick ass performer!!!

About Ian

I’ve been teaching professionally to all ages and levels for over 10 years throughout the Chicagoland area. I have been playing for about 19 years. Music is my passion. I even own and run an all ages music venue. Teaching is my biggest love and I love seeing students learn! There isn’t a style I will not teach. All music to me is fascinating:)

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons start with the basics (assuming the student doesn’t already know them). This includes: reading music and chord diagrams (usually using a book for students under the age of 15), understanding rhythm, basic music theory, etc. Meanwhile, we apply this knowledge to songs of the student’s choice- this way they’re learning songs they like, and more about guitar and music at the same time. ...

great teacher for popular acoustic guitar

Ian is a no nonsense well organized guy. He taught me using exercises he wrote out on paper mostly in tabulature form. He used a metronome from the first lesson and always introduced a music theory concept such as rhythm, pentatonic scales, and chord transposition. He will not move past any exercise until you can demonstrate proficiency so there is no choice but to draw your own conclusion that you need to practice more if you want to progress. He teaches out of his local all ages music venue, or will travel to your home.

A great experience.

As an adult, beginner student I have nothing but good things to say about Ian. He has a very good demeanor during class and takes the time to find out what styles you are interested in.

He has the patience and communication skills that are found in superior instructors (I have been to a couple others and have stuck with Ian). His passion for music is infectious.

He challenges me to become better with each week and is good at instilling a sense of competition. I highly recommend him as an instructor.
Joseph M. Skokie, IL

As far as general guitar technique am able to teach to a advanced level except for heavy metal electric and jazz styles. For any kind of fingerpicking can teach to a advanced level.

About Joseph

My Story:

As a guitarist in my early years I spent much time reworking my technique and gaining insight in how guitar playing really works. My early struggles gave way to a solid knowledge of the guitar and music.

This was gained through no small part through my High School music teacher, through master classes of Manuel Lopez Ramos and Abel Carlevaro and others.

These master classes helped me in a big way to develop teaching systems and principles that can help anyone to learn guitar easier and more effectively.

You will gain from the knowledge of these world class guitarists and teachers which will help you to play better and more musical.

And from my musical background-of playing hundreds of songs ...
