Diego is a great teacher! I have been taking lessons from him for a while now and I have improved considerably. He is very clear with his teaching using the information learned through his information psychology. He explains why we must do something a certain way and this leads to a better understanding of flamenco and the guitar. He teaches not just guitar, but also how to practice. Diego is incredibly friendly and makes learning something so difficult manageable and fun!

Diego is a fantastic teacher and guitarist. He is generous and patient, encouraging and effective. Diego has the ability to simplify difficult technique and break it down in simple terms. His studies in Spain make him a rare and sought after teacher in Chicago. In short, Diego have given me the keys to succeed in this beautiful and challenging art form. I wholeheartedly recommend him!
Ayme F. Chicago, IL

About Ayme

Music can be as simple or as intricate as you want to make it. I will to teach you how to make the most of whatever knowledge and skill you have and to have fun while you do it. My tastes are all across the board, rock and roll, country, metal, opera, I love it all. So, let me know what you are into and we can go from there. I started playing guitar about 20 years ago and have fronted several bands that have played all over Chicago and beyond. Although I have studied ethnomusicology, theory, and composition in college, I owe my greatest debt to the Chicago musicians who inspired and later taught me. I began my private studies in flamenco guitar with Tomas de Utrera, Kelan Phil Cohran voice and theory, Hamid Drake instructed me on hand drumming, and from Rockin' Johnny Burgin I learned

Ayme has been great, my daughter Ruby has been taking guitar lessons with her for a short time and Ruby absolutely loves it! Ayme is kind, patient and explains things in a way Ruby connects with. My daughter doesn't have any experience with playing an instrument and Ayme is making this experience an enjoyable one for her. Ruby is catching on quite nicely and enjoys going to her lessons. I would strongly recommend Ayme to anyone interested in learning how to play guitar.

Great teacher!
I started with Ayme with no musical skills whatsoever. I wanted to learn the guitar to challenge myself. 10 lessons down the line I am comfortably strumming away and very happy my progress.
Great teacher to learn from; she knows her stuff!
Joseph M. Skokie, IL

About Joseph

My Story: As a guitarist in my early years I spent much time reworking my technique and gaining insight in how guitar playing really works. My early struggles gave way to a solid knowledge of the guitar and music. This was gained through no small part through my High School music teacher, through master classes of Manuel Lopez Ramos and Abel Carlevaro and others. These master classes helped me in a big way to develop teaching systems and principles that can help anyone to learn guitar easier and more effectively. You will gain from the knowledge of these world class guitarists and teachers which will help you to play better and more musical. And from my musical background-of playing hundreds of songs ...

About Justin

My name is Justin, and I am a musician (big surprise). I have been playing the piano for the past 17 years and the trumpet for the past 13 years. My primary emphasis is jazz improvisation, but I have a solid foundation in classical repertoire as well as the basic fundamental techniques of the trumpet and the piano. I am originally from Fresno, California, but I currently reside in the Chicago area. I completed my B.A. in Trumpet Performance at California State University, Fresno in 2011, and I most recently completed my M.M. in Jazz Studies at Northwestern University in June of 2013.

Mr C. is a very knowledgeable and talented trumpet player. I have zero experience with the trumpet and music for that matter, but he makes learning easy and enjoyable. He gives good tips and practice methods. Very down to earth and doesn't set strict expectations and takes it day by day. Would recommend to anyone.

As a fellow music instructor I know a great teacher when I see one and Nick is one of the best. His high level of musicianship and extensive knowledge inspires everyone around him.

Aside from being an amazing player, Nick is a kind and reliable person. He is great at breaking concepts down and explaining them in a clear way, which is essential for helping students through their most difficult challenges.

If you are looking to become the bass player of your dreams, Nick is your man!

Great students make great teachers!

Nick was my bass student at Columbia College - he also studied with Chuck Webb. He was an excellent student, always motivated. punctual, enthusiastic and right on top of all the assignments.

He has turned into a terrific professional player and will make a fantastic bass teacher. He knows the instrument inside out and is an excellent communicator. I highly recommend him to teach you or your child the bass guitar.

A wonderfully knowledgable teacher and mentor

Nick has an immense amount of music theory and bass technique knowledge but I think the thing that sets him apart is his patience, reliability, passion, and his belief in others. Nick has a wonderful work ethic and will work hard to provide his student's with whatever they need.
