Private Electric Guitar Teacher

I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!

About Michael

Hello, my name is Michael! I have been playing guitar since I was 10-years old. Aside from being a teacher, performer, and songwriter, I would define myself as a "guitar nerd" because I love every aspect of playing. I still practice every day and have an insatiable hunger for new opportunities to p

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

Having been a musician for the last 15 years and a music teacher for the last six, I feel that at this point I can distill the most valuable lessons I've learned over the years and present them in an easy to grasp manner. As someone who continues to actively improve their own skills, I understand how to establish great practicing habits as well as get to the heart of what's most important in achieving different musical goals.

While guitar and bass are my primary instruments, I also play drums, keys, and ukulele. Constantly striving to revisit the state of being a beginner has allowed me to refine the universal qualities associated with learning in general, music especially. I have played in many different contexts, ranging from big bands and jazz combos to rock bands and recording projects. These different experiences have offered valuable insights into not only playing music but also creating it and working together with other musicians. These insights are a joy to share ...

About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 500, in my experience, with just a little bit of practice each day anyone can learn to play guitar. Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live.

Nils has been an excellent teacher for my 9-year-old son. He is very patient and encouraging and keeps my son engaged during the lesson. My son was very excited to learn a familiar riff after only one lesson and has been motivated to keep practicing. I highly recommend Nils as a teacher!

Online Electric Guitar Teacher

My goal as an instructor is to keep the lessons fresh, fun, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to better teach themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument and music. Students can have their lessons catered to the music and styles they wish to pursue. Lessons are tailored to each individual student so that we can build upon their strengths and focus on lessons to improve weaker areas. Students will learn how to build dexterity, use proper technique, and be creative. Every student has different goals, some really want to learn theory and read music. Others may simply want to learn to strum a few chords. Whatever the goal, I can provide the instructions to help the student succeed!

Guitar In The Modern Context -

Various lessons available focused on the guitar as an extension of the player. Emphasis on tone and style, over technique - it's not how many notes you can play, it's what you do with them.

About Richard

I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love. Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Profession

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

Hi! Some of my favorite electric guitarists are Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Albert Lee, Bob Stinson, the list goes on... I play rock and I also play country. I play some jazz and blues. I don't play metal.

Daniel has such a rich knowledge of the guitar that he imparted to me with such an ease of explanation and patience. His teaching style encouraged me to believe that I could play anything I wanted on guitar, that there were no limits to what I could do or play. He never treated me like a beginner, he treated me like a pro, and was able to teach me skill sets and songs that I felt were way beyond my level because of his careful instruction and tuning into my optimal learning style right away.
Needless to say, he’s an amazing music teacher and he’s also the most skilled guitarist I’ve ever met.
Jack
Daniel Lavezzo is an extremely knowledgeable, open and dynamic guitar tutor. He was always willing and able to teach me everything I wanted or needed to know. I studied classical, finger-style acoustic, blues and a little bit of jazz with him. He always took me to that next level of playing and kept me inspired. On top of all that he is genuinely positive and kind. I highly recommend studying under him.
