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

I cannot say enough good things about paul. First, despite having so many years of playing, he doesn't judge or look down on you for not having the same level of knowledge he has. Instead - he is able to communicate concepts, both basic and advanced, to you in a way that you can understand. Second, he caters to you in order to achieve the goals you want to achieve, not the ones he thinks you should have. Lastly, he's clearly passionate about playing, and music in general. he's a great guy to chat about, seems really down to earth, and goes above and beyond in order to make the most of the lesson.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. Highly recommend you take his lessons!

As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for.

Everyone learns differently and I try to make each lesson fit their needs. I find what goals you have and make a lesson plan specific to you. I have 10+ years of experience teaching ages 5-80. I have learned that no student is alike. At the end of the lesson I want everyone to have fun while learning.

Whether you started on an Acoustic and have crossed over to the Electric or this is your first guitar, I am ready to show you the fun of this amazing instrument! Through use of amplification, Guitars no longer relied on thick strings and hollow bodies to produce volume. This made the guitar much easier to play and therefor allowed for some huge innovations in playing technique. Bends, whammy bars, feedback, increased sustain... these are all were made possible by plugging in the instrument, so let's turn it up and rock out!!

About Thomas

I LOVE to teach and I am looking for a few more motivated students online and at my home studio on Merritt Island, Florida. Lessons are fun and motivating! Beginning students learn songs that they love while also learning basic theory and instrument technique. Advanced students will have their mind

After studying this instrument for nearly 20 years, I can safely say the electric guitar is the most exciting and expressive instrument in the modern age. My goal with all of my students is to help you cut through the noise and find your voice while building the foundational skills that make this instrument so versatile!

About Michael

Expressing yourself is the ultimate goal of music and my job is to help you get your point across! Like any musician, music is my life. I love to soak it in any way I can! Whether it be listening to records, jamming with my friends or watching all the live concert footage of Stevie Ray Vaughan

Michael helps you with whatever you need. If you want to play a song, he probably has the tab. For example, I learned 3 KISS songs. Best instructor ever!!!

"I first got to talking with Zach back in 2015, I had been looking for an accomplished musician to play at my husbands birthday party. He did not disappoint! ! Everyone was very impressed with his music style and professionalism. Through that connection we got to talking, and I also learned that he teaches music all over the south bay! Years later now in 2019, My 16 year old son had been wanting to take electric guitar lessons, but we had not been finding a good fit with a teacher. My son is very smart and artistic, however struggles with a mild learning disability. I reached out to Zach, and we discussed giving it a try. Zach is very patient and breaks up the music information in a way that is very understandable for my son, and is hands on pointing out the best techniques to help him excel, and stay engaged. My son has been taking lessons from Zach once a week for a few months, and I cannot believe my sons progress!! He actually enjoys learning the guitar and is feeling very inspired to continue to learn more because he is learning to play all the songs he is interested in. MY son is now teaching me how to play some new songs..I am thankful to Zach for empowering my son to unlock his musical ability and keeping him interested in learning in a stress free environment. Zach although very professional, he is a relaxed teacher, and very relatable to young people, teens and young adults which I think makes lessons fun! I am very picky about who teaches my kids, and Zach I would say checks off all the right boxes!!"

"First off, Nick is patient and very proficient at guitar playing. There were so many times when I've practiced with him that I was either out of tune, hitting the wrong note on the wrong fret, or just wasn't understanding the ear training while staring at the webcam. Yet he showed his positivity and encouragement for me to improve upon my playing, especially when it came to my ear training. There's always patience coming from Nick, since he wants you to learn as much as you are able in order to develop your songwriting and be a better, more confident composer. Thank you!"

"What can I say that hasn't already been said about Greg. From the beginner guitar player to experienced shredding virtuosos. Greg caters to each individual's needs and wants. As he says he is truly passionate about you and that innate ability of him carries over into his instructing.

As every great teacher I have ever known, he has a balanced approach to his delivery. He wants you to have fun, but he also helps you realize; to be good at playing any instrument... it also takes work and practice. However it's "applied" practice w/ tools to get you where you want to go faster than most other instructors!

"Blake is a really great teacher. I've been taking weekly vocal/guitar lessons with him for about 4 months and have seen really impressive improvement. On guitar I've gone from playing basic acoustic chords to transcribing and playing electric solos. He's also been teaching me theory at a nice digestible rate which has helped a lot too. I would definitely recommend Blake for anyone who's serious about vocals or guitar. If you put in the time to practice he can definitely make you better!"
