Guitar Resources in Milwaukee

By Mike N. – Milwaukee Guitar Teacher

Am I sensing an interest in taking guitar lessons in Milwaukee? There are quite a few opportunities to get involved with in the area and some great local players, too! Milwaukee has many places to learn guitar and has a music scene where live music can be found daily. Taking what you learn from your guitar lessons in Milwaukee and applying it to playing and listening is the best way to start learning and keep learning guitar!

Here are a few specific things about Milwaukee that will help you learn guitar and broaden your guitar knowledge through listening:

  1. Learning From and With Our Peers The UW-Milwaukee Suzuki & Pre-College Guitar program is an excellent place to see players who are also at a beginner to intermediate level. A nice aspect of this opportunity is that you can join in on group lessons if you want to play with other folks in an educational setting.

  • Listening to Academic Technical Guitar Playing When players are ready to listen to more complicated music, there is a very unique opportunity in store at UWM. This is one of the first programs to offer degrees emphasizing finger-style guitar. You will not forget listening to your first concert, and you will continue to go back for inspiration! Some of the players presenting recitals are graduating with master’s degrees in guitar!

  • Visiting Local Venues to Hear Professional Playing Milwaukee is an industrial city that has a great atmosphere for live music. There are many venues for popular and up-and-coming acts. Shank Hall, The Rave, The Pabst Theater and The Riverside Theater are all places that hold 150 to 1,000 people. There are a lot of great acts that come through here at affordable prices.

  • Summerfest – The World’s Largest Music Festival When speaking of venues to see music in Milwaukee, we can’t leave out Summerfest. Summerfest occurs at Henry Maier Festival Park every year, where 11 stages are full of bands for 11 days. Those stages are full of local groups, as well as internationally touring professional acts. This festival is referred to as “The World’s Largest Music Festival” and brings the best in the business of guitar playing to Milwaukee’s lakefront!

  • Les Paul and Others Les Paul grew up in Waukesha, which is a suburb west of Milwaukee. This is very inspiring when we know that every great guitar player is just a normal guy or gal who worked hard! Others famous musicians from Milwaukee include James Solberg (Short Stuff), Hubert Sumlin (great low profile blues guitarist), Daryl Stuemer (Sweetbottom, Jean-Luc Ponty, Genesis), and Greg Koch (Fender Clinician).

  • Don’t forget! Absorbing music by practicing and listening is very important when learning guitar. Making it a point to take advantage of the resources that are available to you while taking guitar lessons in Milwaukee will only help you in your guitar adventure. Add these venues and opportunities in your browser’s favorites, and drop a pin in your phone. Above all, have fun and make music through your guitar!

    I graduated with a BA in jazz studies from Columbia in 2007 and have been teaching since 2005. I have played in many different projects, covering many styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin, Hip hop, classical, orchestral, and country. So, I have a strong understanding on the specifics of each of these styles, and a big part of my lesson plan is to teach my students to be as versatile as possible. Hence they have many options as far as playing music. I also play a wide variety of instruments including Piano, Latin Percussion, Mallets, Drum set, Guitar, and bass, so if at any point a student has an interest in trying something different t they have many options.

    Learn your favorite songs and riffs! Soloing, rhythm guitar, fingerpicking, and more. The foundation of music lessons is good ears and good time feel (groove). These are skills that all the best musicians have. That, along with some study of guitar basics will cover about half of our lesson time. The other half should be devoted to the kind of music that inspired you to look me up. My hope is that you will become a well rounded musician and guitar player, and that we'll both discover new music :-)

    I also enjoy preparing for jam sessions, auditions, and competing for placement in school ensembles and for scholarships.

    My mission is to provide a positive musical experience for all students.

All students will be challenged to improve their listening, timing, and technique. All students will learn to play songs that they love.

    Recommendations for best results: make a three-month commitment to weekly lessons, and work up to 30 minutes of daily practice. This formula guarantees results. Bring your instrument, music books, and a binder with sheet protectors ☺

    Jordan was born and raised in the El Centro, California where he began playing the alto sax in the elementary band program. At the age of 12, he began his study of guitar and drums, performing in several rock and ska bands around his home town and San Diego. At age 14, is where he found his love for brass instruments when he took up the trombone. While in high school he became a soloist with the Imperial Valley College Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of former Basie trumpeter Jimmy Cannon. That lead Jordan to accept the Constance Weldon Music Scholarship to attend the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL.

    While performing in South Florida Jordan appeared with major acts including 10,000 Maniacs, and appeared on the Spanish television show "Calle Ocho." He also gained invaluable experience teaching in Miami public schools. His first teaching assignment was at Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High School where he directed 3 beginning bands, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, and their highly decorated Jazz Band. Later Jordan moved into the elementary setting, teaching vocal and instrumental music for grades K-5 at Cypress Elementary.

    In 2007, Jordan returned to California to pursue a music career in San Diego. He can be seen performing all over San Diego, Orange, and LA Counties in styles ranging from rock, jazz, funk, blues, hip-hop, Latin, and more. He performs primarily on trombone, piano, and guitar, but is known to pick up percussion, harmonica, and other wind instruments as well. Jordan, along with the rest of the aggressively funky cover band SuperMagnetic, were the grand prize winner of the 2010 Viejas Ultimate Music Challenge 4. In 2011, Tori Roze & The Hot Mess were nominated for a San Diego Music Award in the category of "Best Blues Artist" after the release of their first album "From The Hip." They released their second album "Turbulence" last December, and are heard regularly on local San Diego radio. This album has also been nominated for Best Pop album for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. In 2013, Jordan completed his Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University.

    On stage, Jordan is a talented and versatile performer. He is known for his trombone sound and improvisational ability, as well as his positive relationship with his fellow musicians. In lessons, Jordan is energetic and creative.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    I enjoy teaching kids and adults of all ages. When you arrive for our first lesson, we'll start by getting to know your musical tastes and aspirations. Then we make a plan. Then we play!

    Everybody's path is different, but we must start with a strong foundation in the fundamentals. After we start to establish some technique on your instrument we will explore music that suits you from a practical stand point in your development, and very importantly, stylistically. Together we will plan a curriculum that keeps you motivated toward your goals and that fits your life style.

    You can expect a laid back, yet focused environment. Most of all, you can look forward to progress! Hope to see you soon.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Living room with large wall mirror, good lighting, with full size keyboard, weighted

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    I expect students to provide an instrument for themselves. I also require a student to come prepared with sheet music, pencils, a binder with sheet protectors, and any books they are interested in.

    *** Specialties ***
    I have an extensive background in jazz bands, salsa bands, classical wind ensembles, and improvisation. I also currently perform in both original and cover bands on trombone, keyboard and guitar, in a range of styles including rock, reggae, Latin, and funk. I teach beginning and intermediate piano, guitar, and woodwind instruments, as well as advanced brass.

    About Paul
    ***My goal as a teacher***

    I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them.

    I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Toddlermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his lyrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.

    ***Background***

    I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also because they seemed exciting. I've competed in WSMA (Wi
    sconsin School Music Assoc.) for many years which taught me a lot about performing for judges, being relaxed, and the importance of preparation.

    I started playing the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and have never stopped practicing and performing since. I also have done a lot of writing, recording, producing, and have a Pro Tools Studio for students to use.

    ***College and Teaching***

    I began teaching music lessons in college and enjoyed it very much. I received my B.A. in Music from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. There I was very much involved with guitar, piano, voice, trumpet, and being in bands and writing music. After receiving my B.A. I also took 3 years of Education classes at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I write, produce, and perform my music along with performing with bands around the Midwest.

    ***Life in Music***

    After receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued teaching and opened up my home studio. After a year and a half I had enough students that I was able to quit my factory job and teach music full time. I've been teaching, performing, and writing music ever since.

    ***Performing and more***

    I have been on stage performing music since I was 11. In school band, marching band, competing in music competitions, and in bands touring the Midwest.

    I have recorded many CDs with bands and on my own. My most ambitious project was a CD of my original music called, "Girls". I've performed my music and promoted it by being interviewed on Milwaukee radio stations along with internet music sites such as CD Baby. It is very exciting talking on live radio about my music and my passion. It is also even more exciting, and scary, playing my music live on the radio, lol.

    ***Instruments Taught***

    I have been teaching for over 2 decades. Students take lessons for:
    * guitar (electric / acoustic)
    * piano
    * violin
    * voice
    * drums
    * trumpet
    * saxophone
    * harmonica
    * music theory / ear training
    * studio recording / songwriting

    I also give kindermusik lessons to 2-5 year old all the way up to senior citizens 70-93. I play parties, concerts, and Nursing Home performances.

    I am experienced as an online (Skype) instructor, and I have taught online lessons worldwide. I've witnessed great results from my online students (both national and international).

    I hope I can help you with all of your musical goals and get you going in a positive musical direction.

Paul is a very qualified teacher, of many instruments, drums, keyboards, guitar, and others. I'm 59 years old, Paul doesn't mind my age, doesn't treat me like I'm too old to learn new stuff. And is more than willing to see me thru complete guitar instruction. Thanks Paul...

    Guitar lessons are a fun, laid-back, and encouraging experience for anyone to pursue. My lessons are specifically designed to accomplish the goals of the student, whether it's as simple as playing along with your favorite songs, or obtaining the musical foundation to begin writing your own songs. Former students have thanked me for being laid-back, non-rigid, and down to earth. My diverse musical background lets me offer students of any genre a fast track to learning the skills they desire, and having fun along the way as well!

    About Nikolas
    With 10 years of live band experience, 8 years of music composition, and 7 years of teaching guitar, I offer vast expertise and a large musical background for very affordable rates! My lessons are described by former/current students as being laid-back, detail-oriented, and very encouraging. My students range in age from 8 years old to adults in their 30's. You can always learn something new!

    Most of my musical experience has entailed Rock, Indie-Rock, Blues, Acoustic, Bossa Nova, and Experimental/Contemporary. If students are looking to expand into a genre which I am not necessarily familiar with, I am always able to examine and learn the material myself in order to pass along to the student.

    My students always decide the curriculum and pace which they would like their lessons to held at. I make sure to break the lesson down into simp
    le, fundamental bullet points so that students do not find themselves lost or confused. Overall, my combination of friendly attitude and communication skills means that all my students get a lesson they enjoy, remember, and improve with.

    I have been teaching guitar and bass for five years now and I'm really passionate about being completely focused on the needs of the student, not complicated theory (unless they want that of course!).

    About Fionn
    I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, and I'm extremely passionate about helping others reach their potential! Learning an instrument can be a difficult process but with the right teacher it can be an extremely rewarding one. I understand that different students have different wants and needs and I'm 100% focused on delivering the right service for you!

    I've spend the last few years performing on all sorts of stages, from intimate jazz clubs in Boston to Glastonbury, the largest festival in England. I appreciate the varied ways we all experience different types of music and I want to teach you music YOU want to learn. If you want to learn theory, that's fine too but I understand that not everyone wants to.

    Let me know as soon possible so we can get started!

    I got bass lessons from Fionn in 2016, and it was fantastic. He's a brilliant teacher, and extremely patient. I switched from drums so he basically had to teach me music theory and how to read music too, which he did with ease. Really enjoyable lessons that I learned a lot from, I'd highly recommend Fionn as a teacher.

    I just began playing guitar a year ago, but had terrible technique. I began taking lessons with Fionn and noticed a huge difference in my playing almost immediately. Fionn is an incredible teacher and so easy going, I couldn't recommend him enough! I have started playing in front of small audiences now which I never would have had the confidence to do before. He's also great value for money! All I can say is TAKE HIM!!

    My lessons are unique because I focus on self-expression and fun while still emphasizing technique! I think one of the most important things in playing guitar is developing ones own style! However, having solid chord changes, scale knowledge, and hand positioning, are just some of the essential skills needed to developing good technique and style. I have been playing for 14 years, and teaching for 4. I was self taught so I understand all the trials and pitfalls that both a young guitarist and a seasoned guitarist can go through. Also those struggling with or wanting to learn improvisation, that is my specialty!

    About Jaime
    Hello! I am an avid musician around town, a graduate from UT Austin with a B.S. in Mathematcs, and I just finished my first year of service with Americorps teaching literacy! I’m extremely passionate about helping others learn and express themselves. Guitar is a cornerstone of my life and being able to share my 14 years of knowledge with others, guide them, and help them learn to play their favorite music on stage or write their own songs is amazing. From studios downtown, to the stage during SXSW, I offer experience based teaching on everything guitar and music. I have always loved math since I was young and was very excited to study it in college. I understand that this can be a frustrating subject, and I aim to get my students to a high level of preparedness and comfortability that will transfer over into their performance in the class
    room and tests. I aim for the same high level of performance in math in reading as well. I have always loved reading but I never knew how to teach this important skill. During my service term with Americorps, I gained the knowledge and skills to teach early literacy and get students reading at grade level or help them get a head start in their elementary school.
