Music lessons (Bass and Guitar). Matt is patient and makes learning an instrument as an adult fun. He caters to your tastes and goals, the lessons never feel like a chore, it is a nice break in the routine every week. Highly recommended !!
My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)
I have been taking lessons from Dan for more than two and a half years and it something I look forward to every week. Aside from being a great teacher, he is fun, understanding and very talented. He takes the time to help you understand the structure of what you are learning without over burdening you with theory. He is also really interested in making sure you are enjoying playing (that is the point) and getting out of it exactly what you want. Any time I have a request (no matter how absurd) of a song to learn, Dan takes the time to find a good arrangement at my level and teaches it to me. It is really nice having that flexibility and personal investment in my lessons. In just two and a half years, I went from playing no to guitar to be comfortable jamming with my friends while also developing my classical guitar playing skills. His musical interests are vast; from beautiful classical pieces to classic rock solos to movie soundtracks (he loves Storybook Love from the Princess Bride). This blend of genres and talents truly sets Dan a part and I would encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Dan.
I love working with Paul! I've been studying guitar and electric bass with him for over two years now. The growth I've experienced as a musician has been tremendous, and we have a blast together during lessons. He's funny, laid back, patient, and super smart (REALLY knows his stuff). You can tell you're working with a professional musician here. I love jamming together, our weekly lessons are the highlight of my week.
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!
Joshua has taught 2 of my kids. One a late teen piano and guitar. She learned sooo much under him and loved him as a teacher. My 11 year old is presently taking guitar, she has learn much and has really enjoyed him also. He has had a great balance of patientce and encouragement with them helping them reach their full potential
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.
Awesome experience. I was a Guinea pig for their intensive approach. I started with no (I mean zero, like 0.00) kmowledge of guitar playing, and after three days was able to almost hold my own in a group jam. Jason is an amazing instructor - he gives enough theory to satisfy a curious mind, while also emphasizing just playing and having fun. I dont even live in Chicago (San Francisco is home), and I joined Altered Stage because it's so awesome. Flying out again next week for more.
Bellas Artes has almost become our home away from home. All three of our children take lessons there (violin, guitar, voice and musicgarten) and we truly could not be more pleased in the quality of instruction their receive every week! When our oldest daughter came to us and asked if she could please take violin lessons four years ago, we were not only surprised but also delighted but then the search began for a music studio. Where should we go? We were clueless but instantly felt like Bellas Artes was the place for us, after talking to Justin. Miss Constance, Mr. Brown, Miss Suzanna and Miss Destiney have been wonderful instructors for our children and we have so enjoyed watching them learn and grow and become excited about music and performing. We couldn't be happier!
SolJAMM is an incredible experience!
I have personally taken piano lessons since I was young and my 4 kids have all grown up with piano, guitar or voice lessons in their weekly schedules. Let me tell you that SolJAMM's Instructors perform a service that is nothing short of REVOLUTIONARY!! I SAVED hundreds if not thousands of $$$ over the last 2 years. Using SolJAMM, with my two youngest has forever changed the way I approach personal music instruction. When I previously took lessons there was a lot of time and money wasted just making sure my tired kids were paying attention or doing the tasks they were asked to do. SolJAMM's style allows you to choose the skills you want to work on and sends you all of the necessary material to master that skill or style. They also make awesome personal response videos, live chat sessions and track/update you on your progress. It seems they have actually found a way to make music instruction an easy and fun process. The instructors were extremely respectful and genuinely care for your growth as a musician, almost feels like you are joining a team!!! Again, BEST MUSIC LESSON EXPERIENCE EVER PERIOD.
The staff at Rockstar are easy to work with and friendly. I am an adult who takes guitar lessons. My son takes drum lessons and my daughter takes guitar lessons. Rockstar's instructors work well with kids and adults. The facility is clean and constantly updated. There is a clean bathroom and a comfortable waiting area. Their instructors are also working musicians so their lessons are applicable to real life experience.

My name is Brent.
I have been playing guitar for 13 years and have had multiple students.
I play mostly the blues, rock and folk, but let's play the music you want to play.
Your lesson is all about how you want to play and how best to do it.
I will provide beginning music theory training as part of our lessons as well.
I love teaching and accept beginners of all ages. I am located between Logan Square and Wicker Park in Humbolt Park.
I can provide an instrument if needed and am also very willing to travel to you!
I don't just teach out of a method book. I have my own materials written out, and customize every lesson for each individual student.
It's my job to combine your musical goals with what I know you need to learn.
I offer professional, private lesson plans for students of all ages.
Lessons start at $15 per half-hour session and $30 for an hour session.
Multiple programs available including online and group lessons.
Lessons are available on weekdays, afternoons and evenings by appointment.
I'm a guitarist, with eight years of experience. I enjoy playing in multiple styles: rock, blues, jazz, classical, metal, funk, etc.
I know a moderate amount of theory, so depending on how you'd like to learn, I could apply that into my lessons. Any age group is fine.
I really enjoy teaching what I know.
