Overview

I come from a family of musicians and grew up with guitar and piano music in the house. I believe music is a gift to enjoy and develop! I began playing guitar and singing at the age of 13. I have played, taught and performed music since that time.
I have worked with musicians from various levels throughout the years in many different genres such as country, pop, folk and contemporary Christian music. I have also done some studio work. I have also played coffee shops and open mics in the Chicago area. For the past 10 years I have been a member of my church worship team playing guitar and singing. I hold a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University. Presently I teach both privately and in an academic after school program in Palatine, Il. I am very patient and actually truly enjoy my beginner guitar students. I love to see the look on their face when they finally play that first song.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach beginner and intermediate guitar and I especially enjoy teaching first time guitarist whether young or old. With beginner guitar you can expect to learn the basics of the guitar. Lessons include correct finger positioning, knowledge of strings, basic tablature, rhythm patterns and simple chords. After beginner guitarists go on to learn more complex rhythm patterns and more advanced chord work. I will tailor a music instruction program specifically for you with you. I want your feedback on what you want. I want consistent feedback as you are paying me for your instruction. I have many students who just want to learn particular songs from artists such as Miley Cyrus, The Beatles, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift. I am fine with this method of instruction in fact many schools such as Old Town School of Folk Music uses this method. I think this method of learning particular songs (that interest the student) motivates them to more consistent practice. Setting goals is very important to maintaining consistency and direction and I work with you on a specific lesson plan. Students then can see progress and this in itself is motivating and track-able.

*** Travel Equipment ***

Improved Tremendously

Lisa is bright and compassionate. She definitely has a gift of teaching, which makes learning guitar fun. Though I had some past music experience, I always was kind of stumped by it as well. For the first time I feel like I truly understand music and rhythm. From building your chord library to strumming techniques taught in a way that intuitively makes sense, you will love music and guitar even more, more than you possibly thought you could.

So happy I found Lisa

Lisa is a wonderful teacher! I was nervous to go back to lessons after not playing guitar since college, but after my first lesson with Lisa, all my nerves subsided. She is knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and very supportive. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to learn guitar. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor!
