I have been playing guitar for ten years and teach electric or acoustic guitar. I can teach any kind of rock or pop music as well as basic guitar for beginners.

About Mathew
Currently residing in Homewood, IL to play downtown with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, I am looking to continue my passion of teaching in this exciting new city. My wife and I have relocated from Bloomington Indiana, where I was an Associate Instructor for the Jacobs School of Music. I have always enjoyed learning new instruments to get new musical perspectives; I have studied String Bass, Electric Bass, Guitar, Piano, Voice, Drums/Percussion,
and even the Viol de Gamba (Google it!).

Matt is an excellent guitar teacher. I highly recommend him.

Matt has been teaching guitar to my 12 year old son for several months now. My sons' guitar playing has improved greatly since his lessons with Matt. He's playing with a lot more confidence, thanks to Matt's influence.

Matt is always on time and has a wonderful way with people. My son feels very comfortable with him. They collaborate on songs together and it is important to Matt that Jude be engaged in his guitar practice.

We're thrilled with Matt and I highly recommend him as a teacher.
Any aspiring guitar player would be lucky to have Matt as a teacher!

After 3 months bar chords and more complex melodies are introduced, and beyond 6 months, one can expect to progress into music theory and improvisation.

John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

Beginners can expect to start by learning how to hold a pick, play basic chords, simple techniques, simple songs, tune their guitar, and learn basics of reading music. Intermediate students will learn how to play more advanced chords, music theory, minor and major scales, how to read more complex music, how to write songs, singing while they play, more advanced techniques, and how to play more advanced songs. Advanced students will learn more in depth music theory, how to learn songs by ear, even more advanced techniques (sweep picking, artificial harmonics, etc.), very complicated songs, how to read very intricate music, and more complicated scales and modes. All lessons are tailored to the students learning speed and goals for their own playing.

Referred to Jon by a friend. I knew within 2 minutes of meeting him we were going to be happy with our choice. I love to listen in while he is instructing my granddaughter. He is so patient and kind but yet firm enough to manage a beginning student and keep them motivated. My 12 year old granddaughter practices every day without prompting because he advised her that was an expectation. I would highly recommend him!

I’ve taught guitar for over 18 years and my students have gone on to play in bands of all styles—jazz, rock, pop, country, indie.

I work with students of all ages and love to watch them progress towards their musical goals!

Christina is super patient with my teenage girls! Her gift has so graciously been translated into a new creative outlet for my girls! She has cultivated the art of teaching in such a way that my kids treat their lesson like a session. There's a sense if appreciation woven into the way Christina teaches that helps her students love what they are learning! Makes nagging the girls to do daily practice a non-issue! They love trying out what they've learned! Love, love Christina! She is truly a gem! -Shana W. (Cassie and Scotlyn's mom)

Blues, Rock, Classical, Folk, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar and more. I have been teaching professionally for over 30 years. I have taught guitar to students of all ages and experience levels in both private and classroom settings. I’ve produced many instructional videos including a 16 part guitar lesson series for Beginners Guitar and Rock and Blues Guitar. I have also produced hundreds of videos for my website along with other instructional material. I also offer jam tracks to help students advance their improvisation and soloing techniques.

About Bob
Take Guitar or Bass Guitar lessons from an experienced teacher and Hartt College graduate. In person one on one private lessons or webcam lessons if that is more convenient. Your lessons will be customized for what you want to learn. Rock, Blues, Folk, Country, Classical, Music Theory, chord playing, lead guitar, music reading, songwriting etc. Lessons can be as easy or challenging as you like depending on your goals. If you are new to guitar or bass guitar, if you tried playing guitar before and it didn't work out, or if you have been away for awhile, I'll do my best to make it a rewarding experience. If you have been playing for many years but feel stuck in a rut, I can get you out of it and teach you things you have wanted to learn. Great teaching environment. I also have free supplementary lesson videos available here (at takelessons)
and on my website.

I'll teach you whatever songs you want to learn. I can break them apart in 2 listens and walk you through step by step. I can also teach how to write melodies and proper structure for layering instruments in key. I know every important technique and interesting chords.

About Micah
I've first started playing guitar in 2010 thanks to the excuse of in-school lessons, but have since moved on to learning everything by ear. That allowed me to later pick up percussion, classical strings, piano, wind, vocals etc, (although I refuse to teach anything I'm not confident in). This knack for music lead me to considering teaching since it will pay far more than my current job.

To give an idea about how I do as an instructor, I'm adaptable, I can handle special needs (I have aspergers), I take a minute to understand what we are struggling with and I believe in patience as much as I do efficiency

I will not coddle and I will not demean. As a teacher, I believe that it's not my job to be your parent, but the one helping you progress as a musician. I want you to walk out of each session knowing that you've improved. Hopefully
, one day you will be able to keep learning without me!

Whether you want to learn how to strum along to your favorite pop songs on an acoustic, or play searing classic rock solos, or uncover the secrets of jazz chord melody, or accompany yourself while writing your own songs... I can help!

About Jonathan
Lifelong musician who loves sharing my knowledge of music with others wanting to learn. I grew up playing cello but made the switch to guitar in my teenage years. I've been playing guitar for 15 years now. And picked up mandolin, ukelele, bass, piano, and vocals along the way.

3+ years teaching experience, both private and band lessons.

I have a Bachelor's Degree from Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA and have studied with some of the great guitar/composition/music theory instructors in all of Los Angeles.

I also have 10 years of experience with audio engineering and mixing. I primarily work in Logic Pro these days, but am comfortable with Pro Tools, Ableton, and Reason.

My goal is to teach students what they want to learn at a comfortable pace, while also expanding their understanding of music theory and encouraging ear
training.

You will enjoy learning to play the guitar and I make the experience feel not like a chore but an adventure! You will LEARN everything there is to know and retain it and enjoy playing the guitar after you take lessons with me!

About Willie
Teaching music is a passion for me because I wish i would of had someone like me to teach me lessons. When I first took lessons as a kid I was given music to learn and went home and immediately broke a guitar string. The bad thing was is that i was never shown how to properly string and tune the instrument. The money on that first lesson was wasted because i was never able to restring and retune my guitar until my next lesson and had not practiced any of my music i was given. I will teach you A-Z everything you will need to know to practice, play and enjoy your music the way you want to and enjoy doing it every step of the way!
