Guitar Chicago is the best option for music lessons in Chicago! Their instructors are patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. They do a fantastic job of working with you to achieve your individual goals. I started as a beginner with no guitar knowlege, and they helped me achieve my goals of playing multiple open mics and music events. I've also been able to meet and work with other Guitar Chicago students! They are always willing to work with my busy schedule, which is very hard to find with other schools or group lessons.
I just had my first lesson with Jeremie a couple of weeks ago, and he was wonderful! He was very professional, but really fun, and was able to answer any questions I had with ease. The first lesson was very manageable but I felt like I was learning a lot the entire time. Also, he was very polite and respectful when it came to pointing out things that I needed to do differently. I would definitely recommend Jeremie to anyone who is looking for guitar lessons!
Aaron is great. Been taking mandolin lessons from him. I am an experienced guitarist and Aaron is adapting to how I want to learn well. He is very patient and flexible with grown up schedules.
My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Irwin for the past few months. She loves it! His affection for children, as well as his expertise is obvious. I would highly recommend him as a guitar instructor!
My son has been taking piano lessons with the Music Connection for more than a year. The teaching staff is excellent and my son is improving his piano skills weekly!
I wanted to arrange guitar lessons for my daughter as a Christmas present. The experience was great especially since we live hundreds of miles away from each other. I was a first time user of Thumbtack and I will definitely use it again.
Kevin has been giving my daughter and I Ukulele lesson for over 2 years now. He is great with children and adults. Very professional and talented.
My daughter enjoys taking piano lesson with Mr. Al for the past 4 years. His lesson is not boring. It's fun and the best part is he comes to our house to give lesson.
I contacted Jerry,inquiring about in-home guitar lessons for my daughter. He replied immediately with helpful suggestions of an instructor. When I realized my daughter wanted a female instructor Jerry went out of his way to find out more about my daughter and the kind of instructor who would be compatible with her. He then suggested one of two female instructors he felt would meet her needs. I was impressed with the time and effort he put into helping me find an instructor for her. This was extraordinary that he would take the time to help me when it did not directly benefit him and he did not even know me! I had originally contacted Jerry because of his highly regarded reputation for teaching and instruction. But now I also hold him in high regard for his kindness and dedication to helping others find their way into the world of music.
I was a beginner guitar player and knew only a few basic chords, and I wanted to learn so much more. I decided to get private lessons from Adam and it had been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Under his teaching, I learned so much about musical theory. He really took the time to make sure I understood everything. He's very friendly, through, patient, and you can tell that he really loves what he does. When I played the songs I loved on the guitar, it made me feel so much more appreciative of the music. Through his teaching I gained a new outlook and appreciation for guitar. There are some things that can be self taught, but getting private lessons from Adam made a world's difference for my knowledge and ability to play the guitar.
I am an adult and I began violin lessons for the first time a little over a month ago. Zhanna is my teacher and I think she is fantastic. I have learned a lot more than I thought I would in just four lessons. I highly recommend Upbeat Music. Everyone is very welcoming there.
Since starting guitar lessons only three months ago I have been progressing well. AJ has done a great job of steering the lessons toward areas I am interested in instead of sticking to a fixed script, this flexibility has helped me to advance quickly. AJ is so positive and encouraging, each week I look forward to the next steps in my guitar playing journey. I highly recommend AJ.
Pete taught our son James guitar lessons for about two years. James had never played guitar prior to meeting with Pete, and I was impressed by Pete's patience, optimism and professionalism at every lesson. James can now play several pop songs and even some beginner classical music. Thanks Pete!
I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
HGS Music is amazing, has the best staff and is really fun! I always feel very welcome. I think they've even convinced me to start playing Ukulele as well!
I want the students to have as much fun as I tend to have playing music. I create a fun lesson environment, and create custom lesson plans for each student so they can reach their goals and have a great time along the way!
Our teaching philosophy is to instill a love of music through inspiration. Along with several years of teaching and performance experience, as well as successfully clearing a background check, Musika teachers are also graduates from reputable domestic and international conservatories, colleges, and universities. Musika Music Lessons takes time and consideration in pairing each student with a professional music educator that will help develop an understanding of all fundamental principles in music. We are happy to accomodate each student with any special requests that they may have.
I've been playing guitar for 20 of the 27 years of my life. Music is only natural for me. I'm a strong believer in the power of rhythm and teaching someone how to hear something and play it on the spot.
We offer music education for children and adults in all instruments and voice. All our teachers have formal music education backgrounds. Most with college degrees in Music or Education.
My patience is my virtue. I am very good with entry-level students and my approach is tailored to each student individually.
I am the kind of teacher who wants you to play what you want to play. I am not going to make you learn to play all of my favorite songs, I want to ask you what songs you want to play and sing so you can have fun while we work on it together.
