I've been taking guitar lessons from Ken for 3 weeks now. I had tried to learn on my own for several years and never got anywhere. This is why I decided to find an instructor using this service. Before I even met Ken he tought me some things I wasn't aware of - not finding it in any videos or written materials online. I think a lot of people that play instruments forget what it is to learn it. Ken has helped with this, I was pressing on the strings too hard and in the wrong areas. He helped with holding the guitar correctly, tuning it, and more. In three weeks I can play 6 chords already, and made more progress than what I did on my own over 3 years. So far, so good!

Lena taught my daughter guitar lessons for a little over years. She was great! Very patient and excellent teacher. She always made the lessons enjoyable. Would highly recommend Lena to anyone looking to learn or further their guitar skills.

Emily is a fantastic teacher! My 7 year old just loves going to lessons. He is a beginner student and is advancing wonderfully. He is always excited for lessons and Emily has a great style of teaching. He is focused and engaged in his lessons (and wishes they were longer). I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an instructor.

I have been a guitar student at Mike's Music Studio for five years, and my experience here has been incredible. As a guitar student here, I feel that I am always able to learn at a comfortable pace, and Mike does a fantastic job of helping me learn the music that I am interested in. Mike is an extremely helpful, patient, and kind teacher, and I always feel that I am truly valued as a student. During my time at Mike's, I have not only enjoyed learning how to play guitar, but my playing ability has improved immensely, and I am sure that anyone who starts taking lessons at Mike's will have a similar experience.

Jimmy does a really good job of teaching me what it is that I want to learn and get out of playing guitar. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented which gives him the instant credibility but also teaches in a very relaxed manner that makes learning fun and enjoyable. He's already helped me improve my technique and learn songs that have stood in my way for many years. Jimmy is very flexible to work with as far as scheduling goes and will come to your home to do lessons. It takes all hassle out of guitar lessons and eliminates any excuse not to improve. I highly recommend lessons with Jimmy.

I teach guitar, not just songs. Yes, songs are the finished product, but there is a difference between knowing how to play a few songs, and knowing how to play guitar. The difference is in not only knowing what you are playing, but why. No, you're audience probably won't care if you know the names of the notes and chords you play, or even what key you're playing in. You play the songs for them, but knowing music and music theory is for yourself. So, if you just want to learn how to play some songs, there are some great websites that can give you all you need to know. Save your money and use them. However, give me a call because you're ready to learn guitar, not just songs.

Great teacher! Very knowledgeable!


I teach individual guitar lessons that focus on the needs of each student. I will travel to your home, or I may have clients at my apartment. No experience is necessary by the student. This will be catered to your taste!

Have you ever tried guitar lessons and wondered why it was so difficult to learn? Ninety-nine percent of all guitar teachers start with standard EADGBE tuning. My method makes it much easier to play instantly using DADGAD tuning. This tuning is easier because it uses two finders instead of three and four for most chords. Plus, it sounds better. I don't show how to learn cover songs. Anyone can get tab on the Internet. What I teach is a way to write and sing songs. I offer easy-way lessons at $10.00 per hour.


I'm Zach. I've been playing for about 9 years, and I'm at the point where I'm starting to teach others, and it's exciting! We can go over anything you'd like (guitar tone, beginner, intermediate and advanced techniques, chords, scales, modal scales etc.) or we can stick to a basic, from-top-to-bottom lesson plan.


I have been teaching basic music theory/rhythm, along with improvisation and fret board logic as well as chords and scales. My influences include hard rock, blues/funk and some metal. Prices range from half-hour to 1-hour lessons, along with distance to location of the lesson.


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.

I am a leader in the Milwaukee area for guitar lessons and general music lessons. I am working with beginner to experts, ages 7 and older.


Throughout the decade I've played guitar, I've learned that one of my passions is teaching others to play as well. I'd love to meet you and to get you started on your way toward guitar proficiency!


Longevity. Within the passions of the music world, the passion of creativity often flames out. Within the busy world of instant messaging, on-line learning via You Tube and guitar Websites, you need a guide to answer specific questions; one that will ensure success. With practice you will be ensured guaranteed success.


I have been playing drums and percussion for 12 years now and am very experienced reading and improvising. I have also been playing guitar for over 15 years now, and I have given lessons in the past.

I have an unending passion for music, and work as hard as I can at it. I try to put my values into my music as well.


I have been playing guitar, bass and keyboard most of my life. I help run a service industry business for a living but, I like to do music in my free time. I am looking to help people learn how to play and give them the band setting. I also have a lot of my own equipment here, so if they travel to me, they wouldn't really need to bring any equipment saving them time and hassle. I can travel to them and bring my own equipment as well. It would give them a formal and informal training on what it's like to learn music and be in a band.
