As with any instrument or art, you have to start somewhere and put work into. There are no shortcuts. However, a good instructor can quickly recognize what you wish to learn, zone in on those areas, and most importantly allow you the desire to keep play more. This type of guidance is the “shortcut”. For myself, I have 18+ years playing electric/acoustic guitar I have also attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA playing with other musicians and learning from the best instructors.

Beginner level: we have to start with positioning of you fret and pick hand. You can change a bit of this up later. To start, I might hear you play something: one note, a melody, or a riff just to see where you’re at. Starting from scratch? That’s perfectly fine.

We will work on two aspects: working towards playing single note melodies and strumming/learning basic chords. I would encourage learning the latter as pretty much all contemporary songs can be accompanied by rhythm guitar. Changing ...

George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

Francesca is wonderful. My son has developed a love of learning piano and reading music. He looks forward to every lesson. I have never had to remind him to practice- he seeks opportunities to share what he is learning and is eager to share his progress with Francesca every week. She is supportive and motivating. I know she loves to develop a love music in her students by her obvious dedication to developing their love and understanding of music.
Nicole L.
My 7 year old son won't stop singing so I figured I'd put him in some lessons. She's a good mix of patient and fun while still keeping him on track. I thought it would just be a lot of scales, but she teaches him all aspects about singing/performance and uses his favorite genres to teach them. Excellent instructor!
Andrea D.
I've been working with Francesca for a few months now, and I feel I've grown so much. Prior to this I've sparsely attempted to play instruments, but she has taken her knowledge and passion and been able to pass that on to me while constantly reminding me that one day I will be good. And I believe it! I've come a long way to establish a regular practice routine, still working on it with her, and I have high expectations for the future. I recommend her to my own people and I recommend her to you.

My lessons give you an immediate sense of accomplishment. Learning fundamentals of guitar, music and technique are important, but so is having fun. I strive to help every student have fun while learning and to set achievable goals for each lesson. I don’t just teach you how to play the guitar - I show you how to find your inner musical voice and how to cultivate it along with improvement of your technical ability so that you may enjoy the personal self-expression that learning the guitar can offer you.

I worked with Jeremy in my capacity as a writer for the Shepherd Express newspaper in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For this alternative weekly, I wrote an "Off the Cuff" (Q&A-style article with Milwaukeeans of note) featuring his wife and business partner, Julie, regarding their SuperStars Camp. Jeremy helped coordinate our communication and furnished me with information about their wonderful program. During this process, Jeremy was prompt, efficient and helpful in his communication. I believe that these qualities would translate to many work areas. Likewise, I believe his management of the SuperStars Camp--which provides a 2-week, multi-disciplinary arts experience for young people with special needs as well as typically developing individuals--speaks highly to his character and commitment to the health and growth of our local community. Based on my experience working with Jeremy, I would recommend him for similar positions.

Jeremy is an amazing teacher! He strikes the perfect balance between offering a good challenge and making the lesson accessible to the learner. Jeremy is an extremely patient, kind and caring instructor who accomplishes the creation of a fun and comfortable learning environment. This allows the student to spend the entirety of their energy and focus on improving their skills. He always takes into account the learner's interests, feelings and opinions, providing a thoroughly individualized experience.

I have been a professional performing musician and music educator for over 10 years. I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and have played in almost any style and situation you can think of. I’m a huge believer in the power of music. There are so many great reasons to want to learn to play, or improve your playing, and I’d love to help you with whatever yours is! I will custom tailor your lessons to enjoyably reach your goals (and will help you figure out what those goals are if need be), while developing a strong foundation in music theory and proper technique. I can't wait to start helping you on your journey!

Had lessons with Gabe for many years. I continually use things I learned during our lessons and definitely feel my love of playing guitar was solidified while he was my teacher! Have play nearly every day since then (almost 9 years ago?) I can still play Out of Nowhere from memory and hold my guitar differently/sit differently/pick differently because of him. Recording an album now and have him to thank for my skillzzzz :)

What is a Lute, and How is it Different From the Guitar?

As a guitar player, I rarely had to deal with the issue of explaining what my instrument was to people I met. Even non-musicians are generally familiar with the guitar and the many forms and shapes it takes. When I made the transition to playing the lute, however, this changed significantly, due in no small part to the odd-looking case that I have to carry the instrument around in. People will often ask me, “What is a lute?” In truth, the history of the lute is a long one and I often s …
