Playing country music is blast. My favorite artists to teach are Vince Gill, Willie Nelson Emmylou Harris and Chet Atkins, but I teach contemporary country music as well. We’ll go style specific rhythm and lead playing, how to play your favorite country riffs and full songs and for more advanced students, we’ll learn whole solos and Chet Style tunes. Happy pickin’!

About Henry
I perform and teach guitar professionally. Music is my passion and I love to learn new music and help others learn it as well. I currently specialize in teaching classical guitar with a focus on building strong technique, ear training, and practical applications for using formal and contemporary music analysis skills.

I also love playing jazz and various styles of pop music. I try to bring a similar approach to teaching these as I do in my classical teaching. I want to work on answering questions the music asks of the performer; like how would you play a Country Swing song versus a Jazz Swing song, how would you approach a contemporary Spanish Guitar Suite versus a Baroque Guitar Suite, or how would you play a Taylor Swift song versus a John Mayer song.

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

If you have any questions for me hit the "Ask Grant A Question" button, I would love to hear from you and discuss your interests in music!

About Grant
Hello!

My name is Grant Hudson and I’ve been helping students grow for over 11 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at the age of 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager, and booking agent.

This is how I like to structure my lessons:

I look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and teach you the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist for the Funk/R&B band Water Seed and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I tea
ch all kinds of stringed instruments from guitar and bass to mandolin and banjo!

If you have any questions for me hit the "Ask Grant A Question" button, I would love to hear from you and discuss your interests in music!

Musically yours,
Grant

Grant is great. We really just got going in June, and I've been on way too much travel to spend a lot of time w/him yet, but I can tell he's the "real deal." He's patient, he will go at your speed, he listens, and I believe he has the "chops" to help me get better. Also, he's been SUPER flexible which is a big deal to me. Kudos to Grant...I look forward to meeting him in person at some point as well. - Chuck Kuglen (San Diego, San Francisco, Jackson Hole).

Experienced guitar teacher of 25 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of fundamental guitar skills. I specialize in rock, blues, and country, finger picking, flat picking. Typically use study books, and also have sheet music available to use during lessons. You will learn simple and complex chords, lead guitar scales and melodies, music sight reading and music theory.

About Scott
I have been teaching private lessons since 1990 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, or in my studio. I have helped students learn chords to accompany themselves when singing, learn rock, blues, and country lead guitar, and read music. Together we can tailor a course that will help you achieve your personal musical goals.

I have been playing guitar since 1968. I have enjoyed my life making music and love sharing my knowledge. I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. My teaching style is fun, casual, and challenging. Let's make this happen for you!

I have been playing guitar (self taught) for about 25 years, just not very well. I was looking for a teacher that could help me fill in the music theory gaps. As well as help me formulate a meaningful practice plan that will get me over my hump. I gotta say Scott has hit the nail on the head every lesson. He first listened.. and as a result has delivered an eye opening and inspiring lesson every time. I highly recommend Scott for guitarists of all levels. He knows his STUFF!! Better yet, he knows how pull what YOU need from what he knows and deliver it effectively.

I spent the latter part of my high school years in Alabama and had to learn a ton of Country licks to keep up with my peers. This provided a great platform for my lead guitar playing and instruction.

About Joe
I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient players.

I take teaching seriously, but definitely try to make it enjoyable for the student. I studied classical guitar in college, but was playing everything from Van Halen to Jazz to Country & Blues before that. Currently, I'd consider myself a flat out musical mutt...enjoying anything and everything. The love of guitar has also expanded to a multitude of instruments that I record, gig, & teach with.

Steel string, Spanish and electric

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Curriculum Gradation:

Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation

Finding/Expanding your range

"Jonathan Kalb has been my guitar teacher now for a little over 2 year and ​​I’m delighted to say, I am much more than pleased with my lessons.
I took lessons previously and was OK with them, but found myself wandering and lacking a sense of ‘commitment’ to the teacher and to my studies. Dry.
I’m not a kid anymore and was looking for a teacher who could work with my adult enthusiasm, excitement, and I didn't want to be rooted to teaching me the pentatonic scales in all keys before we could get to some playing and having some fun, too... I was hoping for a teacher who could personalize his teaching skills, and for me, Jonathan came through with flying colors. He’s so much more than a “One Size Fits All” teacher; he’s a real person – reachable, able to identify my needs, my strengths and weaknesses, and takes this into full consideration during our lessons. He’s an experienced, talented teacher. Simple.
He’s a person that really knows his stuff from musical theory to the many styles of playing, i.e., blues, jazz, folk, country and even rock; he can play and more importantly – he can teach um all! I’m an aspiring singer/songwriter and in addition to helping me define those strange chords I’m playing, he inspires me to ‘grow on.’
Oh, and one more thing: If your lesson is an hour long and there’s something important happening, he won’t cut you off - he’ll take the extra time needed to get you to the end of ‘the measure,’ comfortably." Feb 2017 Rachel I.

Jonathan Kalb is a professional blues artist, a multi instrumentalist, and a talented teacher. I have been taking harmonica lessons from Jonathan for over seven years and my playing has improved dramatically as a result of his instruction. He often accompanies me on either piano or guitar in order to help me master a difficult harmonica lick.
Whether you are looking for a teacher on guitar, piano, bass, harmonica or drums, I highly recommend Jonathan Kalb as your teacher.

Hi!

My name is Tim and I am a seasoned performer and teacher living in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. Come to my home and let's get learning!

I have performed in all of the big jazz clubs in Chicago (and all of the small ones too ;) and have been teaching guitar for 20 years. I have a Master's Degree in Guitar Performance from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and an undergrad degree in guitar too.

I have serious 'chops' but also love teaching kids and have two of my own! I love teaching beginners but also we could learn about Coltrane changes, or what Freddie Hubbard's favorite ii-v-I phrase!

Let's have a fun time and do what you'd like to do, and learn what you'd like to learn. I can help you!

About Timothy
Hi!

My name is Tim and I am a professional guitarist based out of the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. I have an undergraduate degree in guitar performance, and a Master's Degree from The Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in Jazz Guitar Performance.

BUT - I do not only teach jazz! I love all styles of music and started out playing bluegrass and fingerstyle guitar, which I still deeply enjoy.

In our lessons, we will work towards your own personal goals, while I keep an eye on your technique. I make sure you learn things the right way ~the first time~ so you don't have to re-learn things you feel like you already know. This is one of the hazards of learning the guitar from the internet that a great teacher (like me!) will help you with. I want to save you time, frustration, and hard work! Let's do it right the first time!

Professionall
y, I work very often around town. I play places in Chicago like the California Clipper, the Green Mill, the Whistler, Cafe Mustache and the Green Mill. I work mostly in Jazz contexts but also do whatever I get called to do! I want to help you meet your performance goals (because I have met mine), or get you started from the beginning.

LASTLY - while I love jazz, I also love pop music and can teach any and all styles. No matter what you'd like to play, good technique and learning it the right way the first time is essential! Let's get started!
