About

Tom is the sickest guitar player ever. Honestly, he shreds harder than anyone I've ever seen pick up the axe. Not only does he shred, he knows how to teach the ol' 6 string in amazing ways too. He is a great guy to hang out with, so taking guitar lessons is having fun. I could elaborate more, but it could be said so easily. Take lessons from Tom. He's the best.

About

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.

About

I offer a private music instruction for piano, guitar, drums, clarinet. I teach all ages, and a variety of styles (classical, jazz, folk, pop). With young students, I make sure they get the music fundamentals that they will need where ever their musical journey takes them. And, we have fun making music together. That's key. With some of my older students, I've been able to group them together into ensembles/bands, playing "covers" or their own compositions. Music skills last a lifetime and enhance all the other skills your child is mastering. Knowing how music works enhances your enjoyment of just listening to quality music, in any genre.

About

I can not recommend Greg's Guitar Lessons enough! I've been a student of Greg's for years, and I could not be happier with the musician that I am today. Greg is a true professional that truly cares about his students and how they develop as musicians. He inspires confidence and he motivates you to get to a level of playing that you didn't think was possible for yourself. Each lesson is uniquely crafted to your skill level and your interests in music, which makes Greg's Guitar Lessons stand out from the crowd.

About

I am a guitar teacher with 12 years experience teaching and 20 years performing. I'm currently building my current clientele of students at my home music studio. I have taught students of all ages, from kids younger than 5 to adults well into their retirement. I currently hold a bachelor's degree in jazz guitar performance from Northern Illinois University, and work as a music teacher at several music schools in and around Chicago, including The Rock House in Willmette, The Laughlin School of Music in Northbrook, and the Music Center Of Deerfield.. Currently, I teach over 40 guitar students a week in addition to gigging frequently around Chicago, playing many styles of music including folk, bluegrass, blues and rock. My Teaching Philosophy: I am enthusiastic about sharing the joy of music with others. My philosophy is that learning music should equal parts fun and productive. Many of my students end up learning to play a variety of styles of music through a diverse curriculum, from classical to contemporary, jazz to pop, and many styles in-between. I strive to balance teaching what I feel to be "important music fundamentals" with teaching the songs each individual student wants to learn. Whether it's a Taylor Swift song, a Beatles tune, a Jimi Hendrix guitar solo, or a Carcassi classical etude, I want to help you learn to play the music you love. My home studio is in Portage Park in Chicago. My music studio is equipped with music stands, a large collection of sheet music, guitar amps, effect pedals and recording equipment; the perfect, distraction-free environment for learning music and tapping into your guitar's full potential. Teaching rates: * $25/half-hour lesson * $35/45-minute lesson * $45/1-hour lesson Teaching policies: All ages and experience levels are welcome! Group lesson options are available.

I am here to introduce your children to the world of guitar. Lessons are taught in my studio. Lessons can be private one-on-one sessions or up to 5 of your children at once for group sessions.

My goal is to guide my students through all the basics of guitar, and to make the learning process as simple and easy as possible. I teach both left-handed and right-handed students for both electric or acoustic guitar.
