About

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!

About

After taking piano lessons for several years, our daughter really wanted to learn play guitar. She began guitar lessons with another instructor however her enthusiasm to play guitar quickly dwindled and we soon had to push her to practice at home. We were looking for a more dynamic approach to guitar lessons and took her to a free trial guitar lesson offered by Craig Friemoth at Wisconsin Guitar Academy. Craig took the time to explain a great deal about learning how to play guitar and also about its history. Craig, an accomplished guitar player himself, interacts effectively with his students and his diverse fast paced lessons continue to stimulate our daughter’s interest in playing guitar. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results our 11 year old daughter has achieved with Craig’s guidance and encouragement.

About

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.

About

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.

About

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.

About

As both a performer and a teacher, I am what students look for - someone who has been there and someone with experience at what he or she does. As a professional classical guitarist, I've not only performed at many venues across SoCal; I've also competed in some of the largest guitar competitions in the world including the Parkening International Guitar Competition, selected as one of 15 competitors from 10 different countries. I have experience teaching acoustic guitar, and I specialize in classical guitar, from beginning to advanced.

About

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!

About

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.

About

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.
