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.

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 ...

· Guitar · In studio
My name is Ronald S. At the age of 9, I started playing the guitar for my Father's Gospel Group who is a great Gospel D.J. (Big Clyde). Through the years I have taken several guitar courses from several instructors. In the last seven months I have taken instructions from Mr. Christian, I have excelled further and have learned more than all my other adventures.

Micheal's business based environment in an open studio type classroom is a must. In Micheal's unique style of teaching you not only learn to play the guitar, but he also instructs you in song with a spirit of being well satisfied.

As shoppers pass through the store they enjoy the sounds of students playing their guitars following the guidance of Mr. Christian. This also gives his students a chance to perform in front of other people giving them a finer definitions for the art of music. If you are looking for a music instructor, one who focuses in on your difficult areas and searches for improvement to make you the best musician possible in all areas, or if you are just looking to learn and have lots of fun, then Mr. Christian is your contact. Please visit him at one of his jam sessions..

In April of this year, I retained Michael to instruct my 13 year old daughter, Jennifer, in guitar lessons. I was quite impressed with Mr. Michael right from the beginning.

Since I knew nothing about guitars, I had no idea what type of guitar to purchase for Jennifer. Mr. Christian offered on his own time to go with us to help in the purchase of the guitar. He kept in mind what we could afford and the quality of the guitars, it was very reassuring to know that he was looking out for our welfare and to be able trust him.

I am very impressed with the progress Jennifer has made in playing the guitar. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. He made the lessons interesting and "fun". Mike not only taught her to play the guitar but also how to read music and understand it.

Mike is a very kind, moral, talented young man and I recommend him highly. We are sorry to see him leave, however, our loss is your gain.

Aurora, CO

Once basics are covered special attention is paid to chordal theory and how to use it. We will also work on technique as needed. The goal is to have you ready to gig in a very short time.

About Greg
I have been playing music for over 30 years, and have been teaching music for almost half of that time. I have performed and recorded throughout the Midwest in a variety of cover and original bands ranging in styles from metal, rock, to R&B/Jazz and Blues. I teach these styles as well.

The most important thing for me as a music instructor is to get to know the student. I then tailor the lesson in a way that will resonate with the personality of the student. Finding the right balance of technique, theory, and fun, my goal is to have the student leave the lesson eager to go home, practice and come back for more. All ages and skill levels are welcome.

I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!.

Timon is a really great guitar teacher. I am an older student who has had some previous musical education in other instruments. Timon is able to understand my goals and customize the learning plan and approach to meet me at my current level of skills and understanding. He has an incredible knowledge of music from both a theory POV as well as different genres, styles and music eras. He is really fun to work with and and is always supportive and encouraging. I look forward each week to the learning process. I definitely believe I will be a much better, more well-rounded guitar player working with Timon than I would be with other teachers that I have met.

The Bass is probably my second favorite instrument to play, you really can control the groove and the song along with the drums. Lessons include technique, scales and patterns, holding down the groove, forming the song around you, playing more than the root note, and playing the song.

About Eric
MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

Hello, my name is Matthew Foss and I am a student at Belmont University studying electric and double bass under some of the greatest bass players in the country and gain personal insight on their teaching styles as well as what makes great bass players. However, I understand that lessons with these professionals can be expensive and I want to be able to help students discover the joy of bass playing in the same way that I did. I treat each student individually and as the unique learner that they are and will create a curriculum for them depending on what they would like to learn! Of course there are certain things that I believe every student should learn such as scales and arpeggios and things the student shall be able to take whatever path they choose! Thank you so much and I hope to spend time with you diving into the amazing depths of the instrument that is the bass, both electrically and acoustically

Through what you enjoy listening to and playing we can incorporate everything else, such as scales and arpeggios, to help you gain an understanding for the reason music sounds the way it does and how the bass influences that!

I've been teaching online and private lessons for over 30 years; students of all ages, levels, & styles. I have a bachelor's degree in music with a special emphasis on guitar and music theory, and I've toured the world with an international metal band (Manowar). Through my extensive teaching experience, I have developed a teaching style which caters to each student, helping them reach their musical goals and having fun at the same time! Let's get started with learning how to lay down the groove and a tight foundation with the drummer to help carry the band!

About David
I’m a professional guitarist, songwriter, and recording artist, respected by my peers and the industry as one of the top 10 shredders and fastest guitarists in the world. I’m well-known for playing 7-string over-the-neck scales and arpeggios, string skipping, and mastering many guitar techniques. This expertise has brought me many high-level guitar students from around the world, while I am still also very successful teaching beginner guitarists of all ages.

I was a member of the metal band Manowar from 1988 to 1995, playing on the epic, certified double-platinum album “The Triumph of Steel” and co-writing 5 songs on that record. I toured all over the world during those years, regularly performing to crowds of 10,000+, in over 50 countries. In later years, I played in front of some of the biggest rock and metal crowds all over the w
orld, including 70,000+ people at Earthshaker Fest 2005 and 40,000+ people with my own band DSG at the First Annual Magic Circle Festival in 2007.

I set out on my own from Manowar in 1995 and attended Roosevelt Music University in Chicago to further my guitar studies. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music specializing in jazz and classical guitar, music theory, and composition.

I continue to record and perform live all over the globe. I have recorded and appear on over 26 CDs as a guest solo guitarist, and there’s more to come. Even before my days as lead guitarist of Manowar, I had already received numerous accolades. My technique and blistering speed on the guitar won for me the moniker “The Shred Demon”. Such revered artists as Michael Angelo Batio, Joe Stump, Rusty Cooley, George Bellas, Uli Jon Roth and Tom Hess have testified. George Bellas has said, “DSG should stand for Dangerous Speed Guitar”.

My playing styles vary from classical to shred metal and everything in between. I teach the beginner to the advanced/master student, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, classical, and bass guitar, in various genres ranging from classical to metal to country to neo-classical. With 40+ years of playing professionally, and 30+ years of teaching, I use my expertise to cut off the fat and get down to the quickest ways for my students to become better players, allowing my students to excel at a faster pace. I look forward to taking YOUR playing to the next level in the shortest amount of time, and we can have a lot of fun in the process!

Ive been taking lessons from David for about a year. He is very versatile... everything from Blues, Classical, Rock and of course Metal. I've been playing for years, but decided to go to him to learn to solo better. He is great with beginners, from kids to experienced guitarists. He is absolutely the fastest guitarist I have ever seen, especially sweep picking. But, when he slows things down, he has tons of tone and feel, and I have learned a lot about that just by watching him play. He is educated in music, and has much experience from a life, as far as I can tell, dedicated to music. He truly seems to care about your playing, and seems to enjoy developing students into better players.
