Introduction: I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from Columbia College Chicago. I studied under Marcos Balter, Drew Baker, Ilya Levinson, and Ken Kumpf. I am a self-taught guitar player who has played-in and written music for numerous award winning producers, rock bands, jazz ensembles, and folk ensembles over the past 16 years. Lessons, based on skill-level of the student, will incorporate college level material. I like to find that balance between challenge and reward for my students, so there's always a forward momentum! Rock, blues, metal, folk, jazz, and classical are genres I teach. I also focus on technique within each style, such as: scales, modes, chord inversions, finger-picking, hybrid-picking, tapping, sweeping, string-skipping, speed, and phrasing. I love teaching people guitar and music, that includes: all ages and all skill levels! I'm very passionate about teaching, so I create individual lesson plans based off of the student's current skill level and goals. Ultimately I believe music is all about having fun! The more you have fun the more you learn!

Guitar Lessons

I’ve been with Jeremie for the past couple months, and all I can say is WOW! He is an amazing teacher and will help with anything you need! From learning new songs, picking out new gear and adjusting anything if need be. I was skeptical at first because this was my first time using Thumbtack, and from the first day I knew Jeremie was an excellent teacher. If anyone is looking for a guitar teacher, Jeremie is a perfect choice!

Guitar Lessons

Jeremie teaches my 10 year old son and his friend. They both love the guitar lessons and actually asked for longer sessions. They both look forward to the next lesson and are learning a lot.

Guitar Lessons

I am a big fan of Jeremie's teaching method. This guy is amazing. Our lessons are online but that in no way diminishes their quality. I look forward to each lesson and suspect that will be the case indefinitely. He helped me find a new guitar, gave me some great tips about what to look for in an amp. He's given me innumerable pointers, pieces of music theory, sheet music (including tablature) for songs I'm interested in, and great advice about how to take stock in my progress (especially during times when it seems like I'm not moving forward very much). I don't think I could recommend Jeremie enough. If you get the chance to work with him, do yourself a favor and take it.
