Paul is a very nice and understanding guy who only got to give our child an introductory lesson.

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Michael is a stickler for doing things right, but in a nice way. I feel that his mode of teaching is best, because it builds a solid foundation for further learning.
ELLIOT
After a brief intro, Mike explained where're going with his lessons. I was having some problems getting my fingers near certain fret areas he wanted me to work on, so he very kindly placed some colors tape where I'm to put my fingers. That helped a lot. Been practicing an hour per day, & I'm getting a bit better daily. I've got a long way to go, but with Mike's help I'll get there. ELLIOT

Whether you are new to music and have chosen Guitar as your first instrument or you are a seasoned vet with hundreds of gigs under your belt, simplicity is key!

While I have spend over two decades learning the rules of music and twisting my brain around Jazz Harmony and complex rhythmic patterns, I have come to realize one truth: MUSIC IS SIMPLE! There are seven notes in a key; keep the notes far enough apart so they don't fight with each other; learn to count to four. Oh, and own an instrument that stays in tune.

While that may seem like an over-simplification, it is not! I have a very methodical process that I have been honing since I started teaching Full-time at The School of Rock in Downingtown, Pennsylvania (now a nationwide franchise) in 2005.

Students are asked to pick a few of their favorite songs to learn. Using their material and few other musical examples chosen by me, students are taught the basics of Standartd Notation, Tablature, chord and scale diagrams, ...

"Josh is a great teacher!

I'm 47 and could pretty much tell you that I was holding a guitar, but not much more. Josh is very patient, and understanding. He doesn't even seem to get bothered by my endless, irrelevant questions. I've been putting off learning for 40 years, after working with Josh, I have no idea why.

The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxed, and while he is willing to take it slow, it is very evident that Josh has the ability to take you to whatever level of play you are looking for."

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!
