My wife gave me a guitar lesson with Steve for Christmas and I started taking them in February. I'm a total music misfit - never played an instrument and I never paid attention to music theory. Steve is teaching me the basics of both. He is an impressive musician and is able to tailor is craft to help me start to learn the guitar. I'm in my 50s and he seems able to help people my age and older as well as the younger students. I could never be at the point I'm at without his help and I need an instructor like him to monitor and provide feedback for what I'm doing right and wrong and keep me moving forward. If you are thinking about learning an instrument I highly recommend Steve. I'm super glad I got that Christmas gift.

My 8 year old son and I have been taking piano lessons from Chris for the past 8 months. We are both seeing a great improvement in our playing! Chris has the ability to pinpoint just what needs to be worked on. He is very passionate about music and conveys that in his quiet but motivational demeanor. He also uses the technique of professionally recording pieces once they are mastered. Plus, he brings his guitar or violin to the lessons and plays duets with us. It makes me feel like a real musician. Without reservations, I can highly recommend Chris as a very patient and competent teacher.

I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Dave as a guitar instructor. He offers such a range of flexibility to what I am wanting to learn, and in my desired genre, at a pace I am comfortable with. He works scheduled lessons within the hours I have available and offers his input on what to work on in between lessons to better my skills in areas that are more challenging. While listening to his own original songs I also found him to be the perfect fit for playing at our wedding reception. He offered to play specific requests but we felt completely comfortable leaving it up to him. He played beautifully and instinctively knew what suited the occasion. If anyone is looking for a great guitar instructor I highly suggest Dave!

Patty and Jestin are very friendly and have opened their musical home to my 10 yr old daughter who is quite shy. She loves her weekly lessons and they are both extremely educated in music. They both play multiple instruments. She has learned a lot in the last 4 months plus. This couple, which I would highly recommend, are very hip and take onto kids as if they were their own. I love how they teach and how easily my child retains the information. They also are very easy going on missed lessons (sorry) and rescheduling! Thanks Patty & Jestin for spreading your musical talents!

Paul is really an amazing teacher. He has a lot of knowledge and expertise and is a great at helping me with the struggles of being a beginner guitarist. I would highly recommend his services and since he runs a studio if you want to record he is your guy!

    About

    I am a private instructor on several instruments as well as a performing solo guitarist, singer songwriter who often performs in duos, trios and bands. TEACHING I specialize in acoustic guitar music, solo instrumental guitar and also teach beginning piano, electric bass, ukelele, and some electric guitar styles. I received my BFA - Guitar Performance from UW-Milwaukee and WI Conservatory of Music. Becoming a musician is a process that anyone can follow. Whether you want to better understand music in theory, learn a particular song or even just focus on a key phrase or lick, I can lead you through the steps to developing musical skill and ability. I'll also make the process enjoyable and fun. I offer weekly and on-call lessons in my studio. I can also make arrangements to teach you in your home, within a ten-mile radius of HeadStock Music or on days that I'm performing in your area. Lessons are also available online through Skype. PERFORMANCE While at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music I specialized in American fingerstyle guitar. I play solo guitar pieces, commonly referred to as classical guitar, however I play on a steel string acoustic and the music is a mix of American music styles: folk, jazz, rock, blues and country. My strongest instrument has always been my voice and I initially studied guitar to be better accompany myself. I enjoy songs from blues, folk, rock, country and jazz styles. I am also a writer and enjoy singing my own songs in a concert/ house concert settings. In most background situations I favor familiar popular songs from multiple eras with a few originals thrown into the mix. Currently, I play solo under my own name, and in The Mugs; a blues folk trio with guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Occasionally I sing in a folk harmony duo called the Sugar Daddies but mainly I'm out doing a hundred plus solo guitar and song performances a year. I've also done some side projects in a Replacements cover band and an Eagles cover band. Visit my website to hear musical samples.

    About

    I teach guitar lessons. I love blues, rock, folk, some other interesting styles in the independent and "cult-following" genres. I am not as comfortable with jazz. I would do an even exchange if someone wanted to learn something from me I would take jazz lessons. I believe 45 minutes for a guitar lesson is perfectly reasonable, but if someone wanted to go longer or shorter we can get into contact and figure that out.

    About

    I teach guitar. I've been playing guitar for 20 years. I'm 33 years old and have taught guitar to friends and family in the past. Then someone in the songwriters' group I lead, here in Beaver Dam, asked if I would teach her daughter, and I did. So now I'm expanding.
