Owen O.

Chicago, IL

About Owen

Howdy! I've been playing a stringed-instrument of one sort-or-another since the wee age of 6 and in a variety of contexts, from full orchestras to rock bands to world-class recording studios. I've composed original music for theatrical productions and mastered classical pieces for solo violin performance. I learned my instruments through a combination of private instruction, self-education, and years of real-world experience. My first instrument was violin, which I started playing in fourth grade; I started private violin lessons in sixth, and continued with the same teacher until I was 20. At age 16 I started playing guitar and electric bass, and shortly thereafter picked up mandolin, ukulele. . . basically whatever stringed instrument was needed in whatever band or ensemble I ...

Patricio L.

Chicago, IL

About Patricio

I remain current in a wide variety of musical styles including Jazz, Rock, Blues, Classical and Mexican Folklore. I have also worked playing Greek music. My teaching experience includes teaching children in primary school, as well as individuals of all ages. After thirty years in my musical career, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn is when there is joy in the study. I have a musical academic foundation, while obtaining an A+ status during my musical studies. Yet for me, the act of making music is more of a spiritual and auditory process than that of physical workmanship. Perhaps like me, you find that you have diverse inclinations with regards to musical styles. I will help you attain a clear path to follow in achieving your musical goals, while ...

Ryan B.

Chicago, IL

Been playing mandolin for three years and teaching it for one. Specialize in chording and strumming.

About Ryan

Ryan is a musician from Logan Square/Avondale who plays a plethora of different instruments. He specializes in guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele, but also dabbles in accordion, piano, drums, harmonica and several others. He's also an experienced singer and has been singing in some form of ensemble since the age of 4. As a teacher Ryan's goals are simple. First and foremost he wants to make his lessons comfortable, interesting and fun. A close second is to build a strong base on the basics, so that as advanced techniques are built upwards, the structure (of skill) can support itself. And third, an understanding of the theory and history behind the music is a great way to engage in the music beyond just the rote learning of technique. After a brief foray in physics, Ryan settle into
