Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

Transcend the instrument and be able to play with anything. Learn your favorite tunes by ear and on the guitar. That is what I focus on. From beginning rudiments all the way through completely breaking down and conceptualizing the fretboard.

I've been playing for 20 years and have studied jazz at Peabody Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. However, I have played in bluegrass, rock, funk, hip hop and klezmer bands, as well.

I try to create an individual approach for each student because every person learns uniquely. I work with people on skills that apply to music at large, as well as the guitar 🎸. My goal is to help a student learn how to learn on their own, and provide the tools to do so.

When I started taking lessons with Max, I knew three chords and very little about music theory. I never thought I would get past G-C-D. His patience and structured lessons helped me become a better player. Max is very encouraging and that was most appreciated. I have more confidence in my playing thanks to him. I even understand the circle of fifths!

I am currently getting my Master's degree in classical guitar performance, but I often include a variety of styles in order to motivate your practice times at home. Whether you want really nail the sound of a Black Sabbath riff, learn to solo over a blues progression, or even learn a piano piece on guitar. I can help give you the tools to form your own musical identity.

My lessons give you an immediate sense of accomplishment. Learning fundamentals of guitar, music and technique are important, but so is having fun. I strive to help every student have fun while learning and to set achievable goals for each lesson. I don’t just teach you how to play the guitar - I show you how to find your inner musical voice and how to cultivate it along with improvement of your technical ability so that you may enjoy the personal self-expression that learning the guitar can offer you.

I worked with Jeremy in my capacity as a writer for the Shepherd Express newspaper in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. For this alternative weekly, I wrote an "Off the Cuff" (Q&A-style article with Milwaukeeans of note) featuring his wife and business partner, Julie, regarding their SuperStars Camp. Jeremy helped coordinate our communication and furnished me with information about their wonderful program. During this process, Jeremy was prompt, efficient and helpful in his communication. I believe that these qualities would translate to many work areas. Likewise, I believe his management of the SuperStars Camp--which provides a 2-week, multi-disciplinary arts experience for young people with special needs as well as typically developing individuals--speaks highly to his character and commitment to the health and growth of our local community. Based on my experience working with Jeremy, I would recommend him for similar positions.
Brianna
Jeremy is an amazing teacher! He strikes the perfect balance between offering a good challenge and making the lesson accessible to the learner. Jeremy is an extremely patient, kind and caring instructor who accomplishes the creation of a fun and comfortable learning environment. This allows the student to spend the entirety of their energy and focus on improving their skills. He always takes into account the learner's interests, feelings and opinions, providing a thoroughly individualized experience.

Very good instructor! He gives you goals and guides you in the right direction wether you're brand new at guitar or have a little experience. Highly recommend him to help advance your playing and put it in the right direction.

"Lucian will listen to whatever it is that you want to learn and give you all the building blocks to play how you want to play and explore your options on the neck in many different ways. I am a intermediate guitar player and within a few lessons with Lucian I was given tools to work on and practice for months to improve my skills and technique/ approach to playing. I would recommend his lessons to ANYONE looking to improve!"
