Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hi!

My name is Tim and I am a seasoned performer and teacher living in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. Come to my home and let's get learning!

I have performed in all of the big jazz clubs in Chicago (and all of the small ones too ;) and have been teaching guitar for 20 years. I have a Master's Degree in Guitar Performance from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and an undergrad degree in guitar too.

I have serious 'chops' but also love teaching kids and have two of my own! I love teaching beginners but also we could learn about Coltrane changes, or what Freddie Hubbard's favorite ii-v-I phrase!

Let's have a fun time and do what you'd like to do, and learn what you'd like to learn. I can help you!

Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!

I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.

Great teacher with good vibes! Nadav showed me great ways to practice harmony and soloing on the guitar. Highly recommended.

I am totally passionate about teaching, and I provide that spark that motivates my students into getting the best out of themselves.

I follow a modern customer-oriented approach based on win-win and long term success. The guitar student is an aspiring virtuoso, and I am as patient as possible with the students and following their own desires.

As long as he/she focuses on the image of the perfect player he/she wishes to become, I am committed to the full extend to motivate, encourage, help, assist, suggest improvements, correct mistakes, answer questions and everything that will speed up the student's ramp-up into becoming that perfect player.

Mr. Allouch is an excellent instructor. For me, placing my fingers on the guitar is hard, but he taught me to put my fingers in a perpendicular position and to make sure to press hard on the string so it will make a good sound. Thanks to that advice, it is easier to play the notes correctly. He has made it fun for me to learn guitar. He is an excellent guitar player and I am very happy that he has shared his passion with me. Merci beaucoup Mr. Allouch!

"I found the lesson with Don effective. He is an experienced teacher who knows what you need to learn in order to achieve your goal. He has plenty of handouts that really helps me practice. The most important thing I learned from him is the big picture of guitar learning. For example, I learned the connection between scales and chords, why/how to improvise with these, how to go from there to other relevant things, etc."

"The thing I really like about Jon's teaching is that he is able to take a complex idea or technique and teach it in its most basic and simplest form. He taught me a lot about guitar improvisation and broke it down into fundamental licks or core phrases that could be used and applied to many different areas of the guitar. In addition, he's a super down to earth dude and anyone who is interested in the guitar or music in general should consider taking lessons from him."
