Marian I.

Wood Dale, IL

About Marian

I am a guitar teacher with 10+ years of experience teaching all different styles of music. Blues, Folk, Acoustic, funk, ska, Rock, Metal, Melodic, Country, Classical, Punk, Alternative, and various other melodies. I have played concerts all over the state of Illinois and I have taught many students throughout the years. I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. I am very passionate at what I do and I will guide you through the proper steps in becoming a great guitar player. Playing music takes a lot of time and patience as well as a lot of practice playing by yourself and in fr
ont of people. I am very relaxed and motivated to help my students learn and I will guide you through everything.

I would prefer that students bring their own guitars so that you would be more comfortable playing your own instrument, if you can't or do not have one, I have guitars here that you may use but during our sessions only.

CHECK OUT MY VIDEO.

With a lot of practice and a lot of studying, I can show you how to play like a Pro an have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
In my curriculum, students will start off by learning the basics of the guitar, knowing the parts,accessories and so forth. Then We will move on to Tuning and Perfect pitch. As we move on students will learn how to build and maintain a Rhythm.

Learning how to play chords is essential, and we will be going through chord progress
ions and how to recognize and memorize the various chords.
Furthermore, i will be showing students how to Read Tabs and write music. I will be showing students the different types of scales that there as well as the keys that they are in for those who want to become soloists. I will also be teaching different techniques that are incorporated with Tapping on the fretboard as well as various other techniques.

All of these lessons will be taught in our private sessions, and each student will receive homework assignments, so that they can go home and practice what they have learned. I will be having tests later on, in which i would ask you to play one of your favorite songs.

With enough time spent practicing, you can become a master of your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***

My teacher and I spoke by phone for my first lesson, but her phone had poor reception so I was not able to get the benefit of a full lesson. The second and third lessons were unsuccessful as well I need an alternative so that I can work with another teacher locally. I am not familiar enough with this on line process to be successful with my lessons. I have paid for lessons that i have not received. Please advise.

Dovile R.

Villa Park, IL

About Dovile

I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be cr
eative, respectful and approachable.

Dovile was great! She arrived on time. I wanted to brush up on my skills on how to make a pattern from an old dress. She is an excellent instructor. She explained things very well. By the end of the 2 hours I had a made a pattern and cut it out. I felt we accomplished a lot without rushing. It was definitely a 5-star experience.

My 11 year old daughter had a great experience with Dovile. So nice and convenient for her to come to our home. Our first lesson was an assessment of how much my daughter knew about the machine, a general overview of how to use and conversations between the two to decide on what to make. Loved that Dovile gave homework each time(make a bobbin, cut the material for next week, etc.) My daughter made a denim purse and gained skills and confidence inputting out our machine. Thanks, Dovile!
