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!
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!
I started taking lessons with Steve in April 2014. I wasn't brand new to guitar, but I was still a beginner. Steve is my first formal instructor and I couldn't be happier with his teaching style. Bottom line, guitar is a skilled discipline. It's a lot more than strumming chords or picking notes. It's time consuming and can be difficult at times. If it's something you just want to dabble in, Steve's probably not your guy. If you want to work hard on being a guitar player and learn music, Steve is your guy.
I first contacted Reed in hopes of finding a guitarist that might be interested in accompanying me while I sang. I’m an adult who was never exposed to vocal or instrumental lessons growing up. Needless-to-say I was beyond green. I was focusing on singing, and it never crossed my mind to even try guitar. Reed’s love of music is contagious though and with his encouragement, we started formal guitar lessons. I warned him I didn’t want to dive into theory, read music, etc. I just wanted to be able to play current songs I could sing to. He tailored his lessons to my goals, but over time I realized he was not only teaching me those songs, he was teaching me the foundation of guitar and building up a chord & (I hate to admit it)- theory- library honestly without me even noticing. He is able to simplify the complex world of music and make it fun. If you’ve seen him play, you know he is an extremely versed guitarist, and despite his elite skill set he was more than patient, understanding and encouraging for a beginner like me. I have also seen him work with advanced guitarist, and he is beyond able to vary the curriculum to suit their needs. I highly recommend taking lessons with Reed no matter what level you’re at. I would have never imagined in less than a year of doing so, I would be hosting my own YouTube channel and writing original music. I have Reed to thank for that. I unfortunately don’t live in the same state as Reed anymore, but I still continue to do skype lessons with him as I want to continue to grow and improve, and well, he's the best! -Jessica Marie
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.
My daughter took piano lessons for 2+ years, and takes guitar lessons now going on 8mos+. Excellent teachers, recitals to look forward to. Owners very good at communicating.
My son has been taking guitar lessons with Mr. Ross for two years. Not only has he enjoyed learning jazz and rock, but his playing has greatly improved. I would highly recommend him as a teacher.
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.
Great teacher! Very knowledgeable!
I've been playing the guitar for over 20 years. Let me teach you the basics on becoming a great guitarist.
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.
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!
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 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!
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 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 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.
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.
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.
