I teach guitar from a wide background in many genres. You can expect to learn chord and scale theory, as well as mechanics, tone control, note and key identification, and ear training. We can explore any genre of interest, however my specialties are in blues, rock, classic rock, bluegrass, and country.

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

Hello! I'm Cole Runge and I want to help you along your journey with the guitar and music!

I'm a working musician located just outside of Chicago. I studied jazz at Elmhurst University under the mentorship of some of the best musicians Chicago has to offer. While I have that formal training, my first love was rock, shred, and all music that features the guitar in cool fashions. My band, Elysian Green, has played some of the great Chicago rock and jazz clubs, sharing bills with the most prominent fusion bands that garner national attention--all while playing nothing but original music. I also have tons of experience gigging around Chicago in a variety of musical scenarios, from playing with jazz singers at the Ritz-Carlton to wedding and church bands.

I have tons of experience and would love to help you with:

-Technique (electric/acoustic guitar)
-Songwriting
-Music theory
-Improvising
-Reading music
-Learning songs by ear
-Learning different genres (jazz, rock, fusion, metal, pop,

Guitar is a beautiful and intricate instrument. There is much more to music and guitar then just theory and scales, there is an art that comes along with playing. Anyone can pick up and play a guitar, but not everyone sounds great doing so. I will teach you how to sound great while building your chops and skills.

About Jesse

Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing. I specialize i

"Steve has been a really great teacher! He's formally trained, very attentive, and really into what he's doing as a musician and teacher. It's just a great experience. He can teach from material or teach by ear and in just the few weeks we've been meeting we've covered music theory, scale modes, blues, jazz, pop and rock styles, general guitar technique, and now we're even getting into learning and analyzing solos by David Gilmour from Pink Floyd (an all-time favorite of mine). I'd recommend him to anyone looking to dive deeper into guitar and music in general. Thanks, Steve!"

Vince has shown patience and professionalism since the first day I started.
He answers questions fully and allow the lessons to flow at a pace that works for me.
His lessons stay on point and we don't proceed unless I have a grasp of the technique or principle.

"Amazing Teacher, my kids LOVE their lessons with Jordan!

My children have been taking lessons with Jordan now for just over a month, and they are loving it! My 7 year old son is doing Guitar, and he has learned to tune his own guitar and is able to play simple songs with 4 basic chords. My daughter who is 5 is taking Piano lessons with Jordan and is able to play 2 simple songs, and able to identify notes on the keyboard while reading music. I appreciate that Jordan teaches the actual music rules and reading of music as well as numbers for the fingers. He is great about having the kids hold themselves and their hands correctly, and having them keep trying something until they get it right and reinforcing the correct practice once it is right. I would refer anyone to Jordan to learn an instrument! He is amazing!"
