Sun Prairie, WI

I cannot learn something without wanting to immediately begin sharing what I know. That's what inspired me to begin teaching, and it continues to drive me today.

My credo is, "Take fun seriously." There is a reason we say that we "play" music; it is meant to be entertaining, for the listener and the performer. I know you want to learn to play an instrument so that you have one more pleasure in your life, and not to take up a new profession. But I also assume the highest potential in my students. If something is worth learning, it's worth learning well. My goal is for people to say to each other, "There seem to be a lot of good guitarists coming out of the Madison area. What's in the water?" My bottom line: Whatever your personal objectives, it is my job to discover them and help you meet them, whether you're interested performing at the campfire or the concert hall.

If you do not live nearby, we can learn together through online chat via FaceTime, Skype, or Google Hangout. I ...

Students can expect to learn to play all styles of blues performed by the masters. Electric/acoustic/dobro. Rhythm, lead, finger picking, flat-picking, slide, and more. I incorporate into my lessons what I have studied with my recording artist mentors.

I use my unique and effective teaching methods while teaching fundamental skills and techniques to meet diverse learning styles. I will have you playing your favorite songs in no time!

Brian immediately knew how to adapt to my profile.... not too young, not too talented, not too available, and without any ambition about playing on stage or in a group. I've been learning bass guitar for one month and a half with him, starting at a beginner's level. Last week-end I was able to play a few songs more or less correctly with some friends at a party. Brian has the talent to keep the fun while teaching, and bringing appreciable progress in a very pleasant path.

I want to have you walking out of the lesson happy, and excited to go home and practice some new material. With me you'll learn about guitar, but you'll also learn about music and how playing can help you in life (perseverance, basic math foundations, etc.)

About Chris
I am a jazz guitarist based out of beautiful Los Angeles, California. I received and Associate of Arts degree in Music in 2015, and have been pursuing a bachelors in Jazz Studies since then.

While in community college I really grew into my own as a musician and discovered that I love jazz. Not only the music, but the history of how it formed as well as the differences from classical music. When at school I stood out from the other guitarists because I was hungry to learn and that attitude will hopefully follow me for the rest of my life.

Thats what I'd hope to pass on the students; that knowledge, be it music, english, math, physiology, etc. is the key to everything. And that it doesn't have to be all stuffy and boring! I tailor my lessons to the student whether its guitar, piano, ukulele, etc. and my main objective is to learn and
have fun, so the learning is reinforced with good natured thoughts. This will set up the student to actually want to practice!

As a musician I've been in a couple of groups, and starting to get a jazz group together recently. I also try to utilize the computer to produce when possible so I can learn about that aspect of music. My passion is improvisation/composition, because I hope to one day leave songs behind that people can play forever and be influenced by them like so many have influenced me.

Mr. Chris is really pleasant and fun teacher. He was on time and made his first lesson very interesting. He reviewed my son patiently for whatever he has learned before and then introduced him to some new notes. He didn’t rush with the time and made sure my son is comfortable with him.
Looking forward to the next class with him.πŸ‘πŸ»

Both my sons have taken lessons from Todd for over a year. They love going to lessons and look forward to it throughout the week. I have been impressed at how quickly they have learned to play actual songs. Todd teaches reading TAB, and also music reading. He is very kind and patient. He always lets us know about schedule changes ahead of time and is especially accommodating if we need to change our schedules.

Nic was great, I wanted to learn some kind of obscure stuff and he was super quick to figure out how to play the song and then teach me. He has a wide variety of styles and was very patient during the learning process of a song or riff. Definitely gonna keep going to him so I can shred and kick like Yngwie!

Vic is a great teacher....doesn't hold back! You'll know how the lessons are going. Vic actually taught me basic banjo technique as well and I played drums in a band he mentored for a few years. It turned out to be a terrific experience and he taught me an awful lot about dynamics on drums in spite of that NOT being his instrument. He's a great teacher! And ARTIST. If you have the chance to take lessons from Vic, do it!!
