Private Guitar Teacher

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. My interest in music began when I was 9 years old. I came to USA when I was 17 and started attending college. I have take several music classes at college level like Music Theory, Music History, Piano, Voice and Ensemble. I finished my Associates degree in Fine Arts in Music in 2010. I have over 10 years of experience teaching music to students of all ages. I teach guitar and piano and I use different methods according to the student's needs. I also hold 2 recitals a year so students can show their hard work.

About Ian

I started playing guitar originally in 1991. I picked up bass and ukulele (and then gradually a plethora of other instruments) over the ensuing years. I started teaching in 2001 throughout the Chicagoland area. First in music stores, then schools, then people's homes (including mine) and then onlin

I have taken guitar lessons in the past and wanted to revisit one of my passions again. I decided to take lessons with Ian since he is in my neighborhood and I’m really glad I did. Ian has been very patient and attentive to my learning style. As our lessons have progressed so has the direction of each class. It’s really cool to see how all the concepts we have gone over build on each other. I feel like Ian really goes above and beyond to learn about his students and what they are hoping to achieve. Ian has also been very flexible with my work schedule. After several months of lessons with Ian I can say I’ve learned several things from finger picking, timing, and reading notes. I can’t wait to continue my journey!

I wish I could leave a review on his teaching but unfortunately, I couldn't even experience his teaching prowess. I gifted 5 in-home guitar lessons to my fiance as a birthday present. After speaking to Takelesson representatives I was told that we were in Ian's in home radius. Ian did not teach my fiance because he did not find "parking", which felt like a little bit of an unreasonable answer. When my fiance asked to be taught on weekdays he declined that too and instead offered online classes. The point of in-home is flexibility and 1:1 attention and we were disappointed that we could not have that opportunity due to how unaccommodating it felt. Would like to leave feedback to both Ian and Takelessons to include these nuances as customers are often really excited only to be let down.

Ian is an incredible teacher. Very patient and professional. The way he teaches is very straight forward and easy to understand. I can’t wait to learn more & more... less than a week has passed since my lesson. I already feel so comfortable with my ukulele,
All the utube lessons were useless for me. I realized this after 1 lesson with Ian. The frustration factor on utube was a waste of time for me. I am so happy I chose ian & this company.
Thank you so much, jen

Nathaniel taught my son who was a beginning player on the bass guitar. I couldn't be more please with the results. Nathaniel did all the normal teacher stuff--had a plan, had prepared goals, gave music homework, was timely--but on top of that he had a friendly, inviting personality that invited my son to want to spend time learning music. It was Nathaniel's happy, inviting attitude that really made things click during my son's lessons and I'm thankful he was willing to take him in as one of his students.

Travel the world through music from the comfort of any seat in your home. I have been doing this for the past twelve years with my guitar. I have been through the rivers and amazons of Brazil, getting to know their rhythms that influenced the catchy Bossa Nova; I have walked the muck and mud of Southern USA, playing the Blues and training my fingerstyle technique to imitate that of my idols, and I have cleaned through the distorted grit of Rock around the world to find my own voice. These are only a few places I have travelled. After my education in Guitar, Production, and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music, I can help you cater to the lesson plan you need to take your skills to the next level, the next venue, and the pieces inside of you waiting to be manifested into notes. When do we start?

About Michael
