Introduction: HI! My name is Sam Schacker. I grew up playing guitar in the Twin Cities, but now I live and work in Chicago. In my lessons, I help students learn what they'd like to play. I focus on technique and musicality, as well as practical understanding of how music is put together. I have a bachelor's degree in Classical Guitar Performance and Jazz Studies, and have been living and working in the Chicago area for eight years. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and in accordance with CDC guidelines, I am only offering online lessons via Zoom or Discord.

Guitar Lessons

Sam is a fabulous teacher and incredible musician. My 15 year old son took beginning guitar lessons with Sam, and always looked forward to each lesson. My son learned a large amount in a short period of time due to Sam’s expert knowledge, patience, and skilled guidance. I really appreciated the convenience of Sam coming to our home. Thank you, Sam!

What a great night! It was my dad’s 80th birthday and I wanted to make it special for him because he loves jazz! Sam and his fabulous bass player knew exactly what music to play for him and definitely made it a night to remember! Thank you Sam!

Sam is a great guitarist and a fantastic teacher. His insights into a large variety of musical topics will take any musician to a new level in their playing. He's an excellent pedagogue and I would not hesitate recommending him to any student, regardless of age or ability
