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!

Ben has a great system for teaching beginners guitar! Each lesson builds on the previous, and the goals are very clear. I have learned so much more taking lessons with Ben, than I did taking online skype lessons with a different teacher. The exercises and songs he gives me, keep me motivated to practice and I've noticed that I've improved a lot!

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!!!

Mike is very knowledgeable and great at putting the information into a context that you can understand. He clearly has a knack for teaching guitar. I'm taking advanced lessons and feel like I already learned a lot just in our 1hr consultation. I'm looking forward to continue working with him and definitely suggest him to anyone looking to learn guitar. Having lessons in a studio is also a big bonus!

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.

About

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.

About

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.

About

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 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!
