Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

I recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, Vocal Performance. During my time in school, I studied classical, jazz and contemporary voice. During my voice lessons, I demonstrate healthy vocal techniques and exercises to help students learn the songs they want to learn. We focus on pitch accuracy, breathing and rhythm. I may also introduce students to reading music if they are not already familiar with it.
