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!

    My students learn basic note reading, strumming and technique. We have fun writing songs, too! Students can expect to complete Hal Leonard's Guitar Book One, plus Hal Leonard's Easy Pop Melodies, along with plenty of supplemental songs.

    About Heather M.
    More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio, in the World Golf Village area, and online around the globe.

    I'm a cum laude graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and a winner of its merit scholarship.
    After performing with the New York and Royal Philharmonics, the New Jersey and Virginia Symphonies, the American Boy Choir and the internationally renowned opera star, Andrea Bocelli, studying opera and piano at Westminster Choir College and performance art and improvisational acting at East Carolina University in North Carolina, and appearing in shows and pageants across
    the east coast, I found my life's work in 2003 when I began teaching music.

    I've successfully taught hundreds of different students since 2003, from 5-year-olds with special needs to middle-aged professional opera singers, from a professor in Saudi Arabia to a 65-year-old doctor of music, from kids of Radio Disney to students of the famed Actors Studio in New York, from busy stay-at-home parents to retirees with bucket lists, from CEOs to touring singer-songwriters.

    I've created and led a workshop about singing called, "The Whole Body Singer". I've written dozens of articles about music and music education for the blog at TakeLessons.com.

    My extensive knowledge of the voice has encouraged and empowered hundreds of singers and prepared many of them to win competitions, pageants and auditions, as well as roles in operas and musicals.

    Having both taught myself piano and received formal training at a conservatory has prepared me to teach almost anyone how to play.
    The intensive training and education that I received at Westminster Choir College in songwriting, music theory and sight reading has benefited my students at every level.

    My current work as singer and keyboardist in the acoustic rock duo, Timberwood, has strengthened my knowledge of a broad range of styles and genres. I have a strong commitment to continuing my education. That's why I recently (2014) studied songwriting online with the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

    In the lessons that I teach, I'm flexible, positive and encouraging. While I want my students to have fun and love music, not dread it, I expect hard work and persistence. I am caring, patient, nurturing, and compassionate. In piano lessons, I usually allow the student to choose a piece with which to warm up and then move on to technique and repertoire. In voice lessons, I usually warm up the singer and discuss technique and sight singing before focusing on song choices. Joan Frey Boytim wrote a book for voice that I like to use, and I like the Estelle Liebling exercises for the more advanced singer. Hanon exercises are a big part of my piano curriculum, and I enjoy the Bastien and Alfred books for young and old. I have used completely random songs pulled out of a piano bench and a karaoke CD for kids. I will use almost anything I can get my hands on if it means effectively teaching music.
    Acting lessons consist of exercises and games that apply learned concepts, and monologue and audition coaching. Parents, siblings and spouses are always welcome to observe lessons quietly.

    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.

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.

    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
    * 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.

    I meet Paul about three months ago, While not a complete beginner, I had tried to teach myself thru out the years and picked up a lot of bad habits. Paul helped me to see and fix my habits. 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...

    Hi! I teach acoustic guitar for all ages! I have 13 years experience playing and 3 years teaching. I tailor my lessons based on each individual students needs/goals. My specialty is playing and singing together, to include teaching students how to play cover songs to match their vocal range.

    About Josh
    Hello!

    My name is Josh and I love to play guitar! I also enjoy teaching others and helping people find their inner rock star! I've been playing for 13 years, acoustic, electric, bass...you name it. I've been in a few bands (90s covers!) but find solo work to be my favorite setting. I'm fairly new to teaching guitar but have experience with people of all ages (7 - 40). I'm looking to grow my student base and find others who share the same passion for guitar that I do!

    I am willing to travel to your location, meet at a park on a nice day, or book studio time (if requested) at a local studio. I also will invite you into my home to practice, whatever works for you!

    I'm looking forward to working with you!

    Touring guitarist, experienced composer for film/media, and professional music instructor for the past 8 years! I graduated Magna Cum Laude from McNally Smith College of Music with two bachelor's degrees; Guitar Performance and Instrumental Composition. I have taught students of literally all ages (4-76) and most specialize in guitar, music theory, and composition. I also teach beginner to intermediate piano lessons! My greatest strong suit as a teacher is my incredible flexibility in adapting to the student's learning style. Originally a self-taught guitarist, I know the struggles of learning or continuing to better oneself on an instrument. I guarantee you that I will work hard and patiently with you to help you reach your musical goals!

    It's not rocket science. It's rock 'n roll science with Trapper at the helm. He brings years of touring experience and private teaching to the table with Reverb Lessons. He can guide beginner to intermediate players with basic technique, chords, scales, fingerstyle playing and songwriting.

    Trapper is a Wisconsin-based tunesmith and teller of tales (both tall and true). His songwriting and storytelling have landed him on international tours with artists like the Wallflowers, Jayhawks and Old 97's and he's most recently released his second album Rangers & Valentines through the London based record label, Xtra Mile Recordings. The record follows his critically acclaimed 2012 debut Run Engine, Run, with his band the Shades. That LP earned notices in Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and Paste, with the folks at Huffington Post calling him a “master storyteller” and PBS hailing his “story songs that explore and explode the conventions of rock and roll.”

    Aptly, Trapper has a Certificate

    Trapper has been a great asset to my two kids. He started with one son and the other followed. It's been great for my boys to get their feet wet with their musical education and have fun with Trapper, too.

    I am a very patient teacher.
    I have 2 children of my own, so I am very understanding and great with kids, my lessons are fun and never boring!
    Adult students trust me, I will have you learning your favorite songs before you know it.
    I teach by asking and understanding what each student is looking for, then based off each individual students needs and abilities I teach from there.

    Thank you,
    Christopher P. Giaimo
    Rock n roll of all styles is my speciality.
