Private Guitar Teacher

For the beginner we start learning immediately, by choosing what guitar and why. The different methods of sitting with the guitar, as well as standing.We then go over tuning your instrument, these things make us more familiar with the instrument. We then learn new songs by playing either chords (harmony) or melodic lines, (melodies or scales). The beginner will also learn to use "proper technique" which includes playing on fingertips, thumb placement for the fretting hand and other approaches. The picking hand techniques include and are not limited to finger picking, or the use of the plectrum.

For intermediate player it's all about theory and practice. This level of student will learn scale and chordal theory, and apply them to existing songs as well as learning the new songs with the theory in mind. More advanced picking techniques and the ability to know when to use what picking approach when reading the the rhythm figures on the staff. Knowledge of song composition is ...

- Mr Mandel is the most patient instructor, which is good since he's dealing with an 8 year old girl who's not sure she even wants to play an instrument. Somehow, he manages to instruct and motivate her even when she'd rather be playing computer games.
- I also take lessons from him- I've got a music background but had no previous experience with the guitar before and Mr Mandel was able to adapt his teaching style to accommodate that nicely.
-I highly recommend him!
Claire
I am an adult who began guitar as an adult and I have taken lessons with Mandel for nearly a year. He is the single best music instructor I have ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable and versatile, welcomes questions, and will take time to explain anything even if it interferes with his planned lesson. He is encouraging and incredibly professional. I leave every lesson ready to try again and encouraged to keep practicing. I highly recommend him as a guitar and music theory instructor.
Patrick
Mandel is an excellent guitar teacher, and is very professional at his craft. He shows patience and works with you effectively throughout every 30 minute session! Thumbs up!

Successfully teaching current students with clear, concise lessons.

All of my current students have developed confidence and enthusiasm to learn all materials presented in an easy to comprehend format.

Each student learns at different levels so all lessons are customized to challenge them but also insure they learn and retain all materials presented to them.

Currently have 16 students ranging from beginners to advanced level.
When selecting a teacher, make arrangements to meet in person to review short and long term goals of learning a musical instrument. Pricing should only be used as the last criteria before making a final decision. It's important to insure your instructor is patient and willing to challenge students to setup a practice routine that will fit their current schedule.

If a student needs an instrument, have instructor give recommendations based on the musical styles they are interested in learning.

Students often ask how long it will take to learn to play a Guitar.

Alejandro is a great instructor, really knowledgeable and motivational. I started lessons with him as a beginner and I have made a lot of progress.
Elizabeth
Alejandro is a marvelous teacher of music, the guitar specifically, to my 3 grandchildren every Saturday and now for getting onto a year. They love it and are learning ever so much! He is a most talented musician, himself, and has a way of transferring all of that to the 2 boys and my granddaughter. He is reliable and punctual and a treasure to have the opportunity to have him teach the children. I studied the piano for 15 years when I was young, so know a lot of what I speak

Like any good teacher should be, Alex is patient and very instructive. He can cover a variety of musical styles and ability levels. I would recommend him to anyone.

Private Guitar Teacher

I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!

Hi there and thanks for visiting! I have been playing guitar, singing, writing and producing music for the greater part of my life. My endeavor is to guide you to an understanding of one or many of these facets and give you the tools you need to become your own teacher as you continue down this path.

Below is a brief synopsis about the lessons I teach:

Guitar/Songwriting:
There will be very little music theory. I never needed much of it to write my own music, other than a few basic theories to get around successfully, so it’s not something we’ll spend a whole lot of time on. I have organized and constructed a course book to keep things lively and moving along efficiently. I call it NOTEbOOK. It’s also great refresher material to revisit in the future.

I teach basic guitar with accented professional appeal and rhythmic structure. My intention is to guide you to create your own original music using straightforward techniques. My goal, once we part ways, is for you to leave ...

About Lorin

I’ve been a writer and musician since I was a teenager, and have been teaching music lessons for over a decade. I began journaling at 15, mostly free-writing and poetry. This was my segway into guitar and songwriting. Over the years, piece by piece, I’ve gathered many angles to my myriad profession

Thank you so much Lorin for the remote classes!! You were amazing and I learned more from you than I did from my in-person teacher here in town. Thanks!!
Ewa
I had a great experience learning song writing with Lorin. I would highly recommend his teaching services to anybody eager to learn music.
Rob
Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all.

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 am a professional guitarist, singer and recording artist. I have taught studio and classroom guitar lessons for over 35 years and many of my students now work as professional musicians in the music and film industries. My studies include 3 years in the Jazz Performance program at the Wisconsin

Selena
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.
Joshua Benson
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.

"Where was Richie when I first started playing music?

I have had several music teachers in my life and while I learned something from each I wish Richie had been around or at least someone with his patience, technique and passion for music. He has a great knowledge base but still considers himself a student of music. The combination of his humble demeanor and skill level would make anyone feel like they were just sitting down and playing with a friend for and hour.

The best thing about his style of teaching is how he employs practical guitar/music theory to propel you forward much more quickly to a level that you might never have thought possible to reach in such a short amount of time."

Our daughter who just turned 9 started taking guitar lessons with Jesse a few months ago as a beginner with no experience. We have been very satisfied with her progress and her enthusiasm has grown the more she learns. Jesse has a very kind, patient, and flexible style of teaching. He took the time to get to know our daughter and allows her to have input on the songs and music that they work on. My son once took guitar lessons and never really progressed and eventually quit. I see a huge difference with my daughter's guitar lessons experience and I attribute that all to the excellence in teaching that Jesse provides."

How to Read Guitar Chords

If you're beginning to learn how to play guitar, chances are you'll want to get started by learning a handful of chords. Learning how to read guitar chords is a great way to get familiar with guitar notation and get used to your instrument. A chord is a group of notes that makes a harmony when played all together. On guitar, you can strum chords to accompany a melody that you or someone else are singing, or more advanced players might incorporate chords with single notes for a more complex so …
