I have been playing the guitar for most of my life. I began taking lessons with Ken when I was only 14 years old. I didn't know what to expect when walking through his door for the first time, but what I took away was life changing. Not only was Ken patient with me, and informative, he also has a sense of humor that puts you at ease. He is creative, and wants to see his student succeed. He makes learning fun! Ken is filled with talent, and is able to break down any tune and teach it to you in one session. All he asks, is that you practice. He will help to shape even the most tone def person, into an incredible improv musician. I have seen him do this on more than one occasion. He taught most everyone I knew growing up, how to play the guitar or the bass. Whether you are just starting out, or you are beginning again; Ken goes out of his way to help his students to feel confident, inspired, determined, and at ease, no matter what level they are at. I still ask Ken for his expert opinion on music I have composed. I have had refresher sessions with him, and even put my five year old son into lessons with him! I would recommend Ken over any other guitar teacher. If you are considering taking lessons, look no further. you won't regret it.
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 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!
More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.
Guy Fiorentini has been my guitar teacher for several years... When I started, i knew nothing about guitar except I liked it. I have learned about music technically, and aesthetically and how to make music ... on the guitar! He has introduced me to many talented musicians as well as his own Milwaukee Hot Club... (awesome). There was/ is so much more to learn; rhythm, chords, ear training... especially ear training.. He challenges me at each lesson and the motivation is there all the time. I want to succeed and he motivates me to no end... A great teacher! A great person as well!!!
Michael is a fantastic guitar instructor. He has a great way of applying different teaching methods to ensure the student success. I would highly recommend him to others looking for guitar instructions at any level.
My 10 year old is learning bass guitar. Tim is patient, has an easy going personality, reasonable rates, is flexible (though busy) plus he has a sweet & welcoming dog to entertain you if you stay during the lesson.
On going guitar lessons would recommend Emily to family and friends.
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.
Paul is very knowledgeable in the art of guitar. He keeps the lessons fun and interesting and he gives very good exercises to practice at home. He is an awesome guitar teacher and I would highly recommend him.
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.
Tim works very well with my teenaged son. He is very professional and seems to care deeply about teaching music. I would highly recommend Tim to teach your kids how to play the guitar.
I am am adult student of Mark's. I began lessons in the Spring of 2008. When we first talked, I explained that I had played some (chords only) as a teenager for 3-4 years but then gave it up as life took over. Mark asked me some good questions about my goals and objectives. I liked him immediately. He sourced a very good starting guitar for me-in my case an acoustic as I lean that way (although I'm now playing electric as well), and at my first lesson he explained that we were going to start at the beginning and he planned to teach me to read music. I scoffed, but six years later (and several more guitars!) I am overjoyed with my love for music. Theory, history, technique and backstory all accompany my lessons. I can read sheet music and understand the concepts the math and the history. I recommend Mark to anyone wanting to learn not just the notes or the chords, but the "why" behind it. Kids, adults, beginners-doesn't matter. I've watched him with students from very young kids to senior citizens and he gets it. He knows how to relate to all students and how to get through to each of them on a personal level. Aside from being a genuinely good guy, he's a darn good player too and can teach things that I could only imagine possible when I started. I look forward to every single lesson after 6.5 years!
My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
Colin is a great bass teacher. I learn a lot, and it is also a lot of fun taking his class.
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!
Great lesson. Mark brings with him a good "feel" for music and had a great way of explaining things so I could understand them without having to have the knowledge in theory.

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!

Many guitar teachers and books focus on a set of basics, and building songs around very basic principles for beginners. Though this works, it causes many students to lose interest and give up, since the music they love seems so far away. I'm here to show students what they're striving for is attainable, and their goals are going to be met.
