Modern Metal isn't everyone's thing. That's how I discovered Country Guitar. As a fan of greats like John-5 and Brad Paisley, there are a lot of talented people that can play great guitar in country style.

I do a lot of modern country. Like older Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Scruggs and Flats, Luke Bryan and others upon request. Open chords are a big part of the genre as well as Major Pentatonic Scales.

Will do my best to make sure you accomplish your country goals.

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 ...

I'm originally from Los angels California, I grew up outside of Hollywood and grew up like all of us being a fan first. I grew up playing in bands of all sorts and became a guitar tech and teacher soon after. I throughly enjoy passing down next generations with knowledge acquired throughout my years of playing, building and teaching.

About Glenn
I'm originally from Los angels California, I grew up outside of Hollywood and started off just like all of us being a fan first. I've played guitar , bass and drums in numerous bands of different genres primarily rock, metal, country and blues based. I soon after became a guitar tech (since I worked on all my own instruments anyways) and began giving lessons very soon after. I strongly believe going outside of one's comfort zone musically as a great way to open new doors and pathways not normally seen.
With teaching of any musical instrument, circumstances can easily force the teacher and student to frequently go outside of their own comfort zone. For me personally this helps so much with viewing things from different perspectives and with connecting with principals or methods. And developing a visual and cognitive understanding
of the instrument. I throughly enjoy teaching and passing down my acquired skills and information to anyone willing to learn. For the preservation of generations to come.

I have a great understanding of where to start with brand new students that makes it easy, fun and gives them a big win and success with even the first lesson.

I have studied with many guitar teachers including Jazz Fusionist Alex Machacek. I teach basic music theory and specialize in shred guitar technique. I teach proper practice to learn any style and any song comfortably and quickly. I'm also super easy going and patient with all of my students. Taking extra time and care to understand them and what they want to accomplish, while guiding them bit by bit to achieving their goals with guitar.

About Dakota
I am excellent at explaining ideas very clearly to my students.

I also have a lot of patience with my students and know where to go with each individual student to give them a big success in every lesson.

I pride myself in teaching students to express themselves with their music and the songs they learn. Expression is one of the most enjoyable parts of music.

A little about me:

I worked for the famous composer David Campbell from 2016-2018 and have been in almost every major recording studio in LA, including Capitol studios, Eastwest studios and Oceanway studios. I've had the great pleasure of working with mega producers Rob Cavallo, Nigel Godrich and more.

I know what it takes to be a great guitarist for personal satisfaction and professionally.

I hope to meet and work with you on your own goals with guitar. I'm certai
n I can help you immensely!

As the father of 3 young kids, I love working with beginners and teaching them to learn new things. I taught myself guitar in 7th grade and have been playing regularly since then. I'm happy to teach basic cords, how to read notes, or how to play your favorite song on the radio. Every student is different, guitar should be fun, and I like to tailor my lessons to the student I'm teaching.

Most beginners new to guitar give up within the first week because they either don't know where to begin or they use generic methods of learning (i.e. online videos, books, etc.) Learning and playing guitar is a personal experience, and when you find your style it becomes one of the most rewarding decisions you can make. My approach to teaching is to guide students through fundamentals while making the learning experience fun and finding a sound they can produce that will bring the joy of music from their fingertips.

About Gregory
I am a professional singer/songwriter with a specialty in acoustic guitar and country music. I've recorded in major studios and home-based studios and have a passion for getting more people into making their own music.

I first started to play guitar over 20 years ago, and I still remember how tough those first couple months can be to stay motivated. I'm here to help you learn some fun things which can ease you into playing and keep you or your child's interests.

When I first started playing guitar in middle school, my teacher was pivotal in keeping me engaged and I'm thankful for his influence and use it as a base for the my students.

My guitar lessons are a fun loving and educational experience that I've been teaching for 20 years!! I make the learning process of reading music easy!! All lessons are custom fit to the specific needs and wants of the student. I performed all over the world! PRINCE donated to my music institute !!! Sounds like your wanting to get into music ! I've been playing the guitar along with several other instruments for years! I have experience in that field as I went to Berklee College of Music in Boston to study and have a Degree from Ohio State University.

I've taught at the college level here in the U.S. and at the University of Salzburg in Salzburg, Austria , bringing high school and college students to study for one month performing classical, jazz and folk music and having my students perform at local venues. What a blast for the students!!

If your interested in a serious learning experience and having fun doing it, please give me a shoutout !! Greg Koss/Executive Director/ Koss

About Greg
The most important thing in teaching privately is having a solid communication between teacher and student. Patience is the essence in establishing that rapport.
I tell parents when they start their kids with music lessons , that I will guarantee that they will practice and learn. Three months later, they come back to me and tell me that their kids are practicing without them having to be told, and that their ready for recital. I have 30 years of teaching experience that helps me communicate with all levels of students.

Everyday I get parents that walk into my institute and tell me, Mr. Koss , my kids have been taking lessons (at another place) for the last two years and my neighbor kids just started with you two months ago, and my neighbor kids are already playing better then my kids, so can we quit wasting time and money and sign up
with you!!

If your interested in a serious learning experience and having fun in the process, please give me the opportunity to enrich your life with the language of the human race.........the language of music !

My daughter has been taking lessons from Greg for 2 years now. He is a very patient and talented instructor. My daughter was entry level when starting and now she is playing many pop songs and excelling in reading sheet music. Greg also has a kids rock school where she plays guitar and sings which really helps to keep the kids engaged in their music. I highly recommend Greg.
