A fun and easy approach to learning guitar.
If you’re a beginner, I’ll give you easy exercises and fun songs to get your chops together.

Henry taught my son how to play all his favorite songs on guitar and was always prompt, polite and interested in our needs. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher!

About Ian

I started playing guitar originally in 1991. I picked up bass and ukulele (and then over the ensuing years, gradually a plethora of other instruments, such as voice, drums, piano, and harp). I started teaching in 2001 throughout the Chicagoland area. First in music stores, then schools, then people

Excellent!
William Z.
First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Krista S.
Well hello there budding musician- I started taking ukulele lessons with nearly zero previous experience and little idea what to expect a few months ago. As a teacher, Ian is extremely patient, accommodating, and attentive, but remains very much human throughout the whole process. His years spent teaching across instruments, ages, and levels of expertise make for a trustworthy experience. Definitely recommend.

Lessons are structured around: Finger exercises, Chord building, Strumming patterns, Scales, Arpeggios, Harmony studies and Improvisational chop building.

Some lesson materials referenced are:

The Real Book 6th Edition Jazz Standards
30 hour Guitar workout Steve Vai
The Music Lesson Victor Wooten

after just 3-6 short months, students will see an increase in comfortability with the notes on the fret board, basic chord progressions and single note soloing!

Ryan's method and personality really clicked with my son. We definitely picked the right teacher!
Dana M.
Ryan is professional and easy going at the same time. So far so good. I'm excited to keep going.
Shelly S.
Ryan takes his time and tailors my lessons specifically to my level and to the type of music I’d like to play. He covers everything from the basics – like the proper way to hold the pick – to more advanced teachings like music theory. Ryan is flexible, patient, easy going, and he consistently teaches at a pace that I’m comfortable with. He provides take-home practice after every lesson and always has helpful suggestions any time I have questions. What I find incredibly helpful is that at the end of the lesson Ryan will run through the take-home practice on his guitar and let me record it on my phone so it’s easier for me to remember. When I’m ready to practice the next day I just pull up his notes and the video and I’m ready to go!

It’s obvious that Ryan has a passion for music, and it shows in his lessons. I would easily give him my highest recommendation.

I am an experienced, educated, professional guitar player with a background in rock, blues, worship, jazz, classical, contemporary, country, and folk guitar. I have played/led for numerous worship teams, independent bands, and ensembles which are detailed in my "about me" section. I graduated Magna-Cum Laude from UTA with a bachelors degree in Music-Media with guitar as my primary performing instrument. I am the worship leader for Redemption Bible Church, a private guitar instructor, and an on-staff session guitarist and music producer.

Jordan is fantastic! We have been so pleased. Since starting with Jordan our son is loving piano again.
Steven
Jordan is a nice guy, my son enjoys the lessons. So far seems like a good experience.
Julio
After many years of contemplating learning an instrument and making excuses like a busy schedule, I finally made the commitment. I started the first few weeks with online videos and made a little progress. I found Jordan through this sight. I was hoping to find someone who would help guide me on a steady path to improvement and growth. Jordan has been a perfect fit for me. He's patient (I'm not). He is encouraging (I'm pretty hard on myself). I am slowly getting better and wanting to stick with it. I think it's because he's clear and methodical in his teaching and he keeps you enthused with music that you like. While I have a long way to go, I practice every day and look forward to my weekly lessons with Jordan. I'm learning the guitar for my self and over the past three month Jordan has helped me stay engaged and excited about playing the guitar. I highly recommend Jordan and will continue to learn from him.

Even in my beginner lessons, I teach you a REAL SONG by an artist you like on the very first lesson! Text or call for details. My intermediate and advanced lessons help you learn more complicated lead rhythm techniques in pop rock and country REAL songs. I am also avail to coach original musicians who want to be paid as original songwriters/performers as that is what I do.

About Daniel

Quick question, instead of "playing Mary Had a Little Lamb" or "chords with no real song" what if you could learn a HIT Pop/Rock/ or Country Song of YOUR CHOICE by the 2nd lesson with me! I don't teach out of a book, I teach SONGS YOU REQUEST to LEARN on guitar for all student levels (beginner,

"Bill is a great teacher. We have covered rock lead, rock rhythm, finger picking, strumming patterns all while learning new songs and expanding my playing base. I had tried to self teach back in the 1990s so had some bad habits, Bill has worked with my to fix these so I can play more fluidly. Bill is very accommodating to what I want to learn while pushing the expansion of my ability. It's been a very enjoyable experience."

"Totally successful lessons

I've been playing bass for literally decades, and when I needed to get my guitar playing up a level, I took lessons with Omar. Very useful overall, Omar knows his stuff and is excellent at communicating it. We were able to talk about chords, modes, improvisation and songwriting, covering everything I needed. I would recommend Omar highly."
