My daughter has been receiving guitar lessons from Craig for about 9 months now. Not only does she love his classes, she is accelerating in skill level very quickly. He makes it fun! We both would recommend him to anyone.

I provide lessons in guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, and banjo. The method I use has been perfected over twenty-five years teaching students from 4 to 83 years old. My approach is to challenge the student, but work at a pace that assures the student understands the material before we move on. I have taught performing musicians who want to expand their knowledge as well as beginners who have never played an instrument. If you need an instrument, I sell and rent guitars and banjos as well as sell basses, ukuleles, mandolins, banjos, amplifiers, and accessories. All instruments for sale are new, carry a full manufacturers warranty that is handled locally, and are professionally set up. The same care is afforded the guitars and banjos I rent. If needed, I repair and setup string instruments.

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 am a 28 year old female with a limited music background who decided that now was the time to pick up guitar. Peter has been an excellent teacher and guide through this process for me. He understands my goals in taking guitar lessons and has found a way to balance my desire to learn and understand music (reading/writing)/music theory with the ability to begin picking up songs by ear. He selects appropriate pieces with learning value that I also enjoy. He provides me with supplemental learning material and readying that helps me to better understand the music that I play. He has also tasked me with some long term projects to provide a constant and on-going challenge. Peter is patient with me and is teaching me to be more patient with myself. He is a good motivator. Most importantly to me, he teaches in a manner that remains free of judgment and allows me to feel comfortable exploring a new instrument. I would highly recommend Peter as a guitar instructor.

I had guitar lessons with Warren for approx. one year before taking a leave-of-absence. I'd only been playing for a couple of years, and I was struggling to find my guitar style. Warren was a great asset in helping me find my style, which was fingerstyle classical guitar, a style which Warren has significant experience in. Warren is a very friendly guy, a good guitar instructor, and he has a lot of patience. He also knows significant music theory for those who want to take their guitar playing beyond the basics. I recommend you give strong consideration to Warren for your guitar instruction needs.

I highly recommend Dave as a teacher! Our daughter is taking both acoustic guitar and piano lessons from Dave. He started teaching her from ground zero and in a years time, it is amazing to see the knowledge and skills that she has obtained. As parents, we swell with pride when her music teacher at schools pulled us aside to compliment us on her musical knowledge and how much she shares during her class. He does a fantastic job keeping her engaged throughout the lesson with all genres of music. You won't find a better teacher anywhere else!

Hello, All. I can say without reservation that Rene is the best teacher I have ever had. I have been studying and playing classical guitar for many years, and have taken private lessons from five different teachers and have taken master classes with with several others. Rene stands out among them for his enthusiasm for teaching, his passion for excellence, and his ability to articulate in great detail the nuances of technique and expression necessary for good performance of classical guitar. He is patient, and very good at breaking down difficult concepts and technical issues so that students can make progress, whatever their current level of accomplishment. It is also helpful that he is a world-class performer.

Working with Cody has been great. I recently picked up guitar after not playing for many years. He is not only extremely knowledgeable but also flexable. It was a big help that he was willing to work around my free time as I work 40+ hours a week.

Start your band here! Be a real guitar hero and play in a real rock band. Join with friends or by yourself and be matched with other musicians of your age, ability and style.

Weekly 1-and-a-half-hour band practices will help hone your skills, along with guidance and tips from our seasoned instructors. Each 10-week session ends with a performance, so you can showcase your band at some of the area's premier music venues. Adult and student classes are available.


I am available to provide piano music for dinners, ceremonies, hotels, private parties, etc for a reasonable rate. Having played at many restaurants, I have the experience necessary to meet your music needs. I also give piano and guitar lessons.


I teach guitar to all ages in all styles. I tailor private lessons to meet the needs and goals of the individual student. Not every student has the same goals, as well as strengths and weaknesses; therefore, you cannot take the same approach with everyone.

Are you tired of trying to play guitar, but getting no where? Whether you are a budding musician, or a songwriter, if you practice, I can have you playing with the big dogs in 6 months time, with my stress free method. You don't have to be a music major to play great guitar. I have over 25 years experience as a songwriter, guitar player, and instructor. I know how to help my students learn while having fun! You can learn here at my place for $20.00/half hour, or $30.00/hour. I will travel to your place for an additional $5.00. Call today! You can do this! My references available.


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 am a very passionate musician who wants to share a wide knowledge of this noble art! I am proficient at ear training and keyboard harmony. I can teach guitar, piano or organ, and electronic music. Recently having been graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Classical Guitar Performance, I know a lot about overcoming stage fright, since I have also studied Alexander technique and theatrical improvisation. I'm very easy to get along with, and I will adapt to the needs of the individual student. I would focus on creating proper technique and study habits that will maximize practice time and nurture the joy of performing. Once technical problems are out of the way, I will focus on musicality and phrasing, tools that will enable the student to express his own interpretation of the music freely.


I am a classical guitar performer and trained Suzuki Method teacher in the Milwaukee and Brookfield areas. I perform at weddings, funerals, parties, assisted living centers, etc. and teach classical and Suzuki Method guitar out of my home studio in Brookfield WI. I have over 10 years of performing and teaching experience, and received my master's degree in guitar performance from the University of Wisconsin, studying under Javier Calderon. I am also a board-certified music therapist and Music Together instructor. I would love play at your event or be an integral part of you and your child's life as your classical or Suzuki Method guitar instructor. Please visit my website: and contact me for any questions. I am here to help. Nick
