Eric is a fantastic teacher!!! He clearly enjoys kids, is a great communicator, and is very patient and flexible. My 8 year old son, who is on the autism spectrum, is really enjoying his beginner guitar lessons with Eric, who is terrific with him. I can't recommend him enough!

Ive been working with Eric for over a year now and I can't recommend him enough. Whether you are looking to play guitar recreationally or professionally Eric is the person you want to help hone your skills. As someone who has tried to teach myself and failed I can say that after working with Eric not only do I understand music itself astronomically better but I also am able to produce music on a creative level that would have taken years to achieve without Eric. Lastly, to anyone who is on edge of whether they need a teacher or not, the answer is YES, absolutely and you won't find anyone better than Eric.

Sun Prairie, WI

I cannot learn something without wanting to immediately begin sharing what I know. That's what inspired me to begin teaching, and it continues to drive me today.

My credo is, "Take fun seriously." There is a reason we say that we "play" music; it is meant to be entertaining, for the listener and the performer. I know you want to learn to play an instrument so that you have one more pleasure in your life, and not to take up a new profession. But I also assume the highest potential in my students. If something is worth learning, it's worth learning well. My goal is for people to say to each other, "There seem to be a lot of good guitarists coming out of the Madison area. What's in the water?" My bottom line: Whatever your personal objectives, it is my job to discover them and help you meet them, whether you're interested performing at the campfire or the concert hall.

If you do not live nearby, we can learn together through online chat via FaceTime, Skype, or Google Hangout. I ...

I would definitely recommend Robert Martin as your music teacher. He is very patient and motivating. He has a great way of explaining techniques or concepts so you can easily understand them. He is very knowledgeable about many music genres and music theory. With his instruction, I have come along way in my guitar playing since I first starting taking lessons. Very nice man and great teacher.

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, blues, Brazilian fusion, and classical among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some music theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

About Daniel
I'm a gigging musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College in May 2015 with a degree in Musical Studies and Physics. I was on the Division III tennis team there for two years as well. I pride myself on patience and empathy no matter what I teach, whether it feeling the pulse of a complicated drum groove or solving a challenging physics word problem. For music lessons, I strive to bring in a context of genre fluidity and history, so that a student knows where and what to explore on their own even when I am not in the room to show them. Overall, my teaching is all about inspiring students to do well and make their strengths work for them, rather than dryly coming up with the "right answer" or playing a tune the "right way" to get from point A to point B.

I knew I wanted to play bass when I was 12 and heard the bassline for Bob Marley's Stir It Up. I've been playing ever since then. The primary attraction to bass for me is the groove, and that's what I like to emphasize (which I think is severely neglected in standard music education). I have studied theory and composition extensively and like to tie those elements in and show where the bass fits into any situation harmonically and rhythmically. Most importantly teaching is a fun and rewarding experience for me and my students. I love to teach and get my bass students grooving!

About Kellen
I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in music education. There are many things I wish I would've been taught when I was younger that would have accelerated my growth, and I love using that knowledge to accelerate my student's growth. I teach tonal harmony (as you'd learn in music school), focus on groove and rhythm (which is commonly neglected in music school), and an awareness of new technology (which was ignored when I was in music school). I believe because no matter which direction you are coming from, you will come to this intersection making music in this era.

I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

Brian not only teaches you the fundamentals of your specific instrument he also teaches you about music in general! He has such an understanding of so many genres which helped me become very versatile. Brian not only made me a fantastic "bassist" he made me a fantastic "musician". His teachings have opened the doors for me to pursue a very succesful career in the music business, appearing on several records and embarking on national tours.

As a recent winner of the Ron Carter Bass Competition and the NEA Future Jazz Master Award, I can take your bass playing to the next level. I teach middle school students at a public school on the Upper Westside who are beginners and serious musicians wanting to get better. When I graduated high school, I was awarded a full tuition scholarship to all the major conservatories. I will get you the results you want on both electric bass and acoustic bass.

As last year’s winner of the Ron Carter Bass Competition and the NEA Future Jazz Master Award, I know how to win major competitions. I also can help you get the college scholarship you are aiming for.
I am able to teach in my apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, your home or on-line.
