I have been playing the guitar for most of my life. I began taking lessons with Ken when I was only 14 years old. I didn't know what to expect when walking through his door for the first time, but what I took away was life changing. Not only was Ken patient with me, and informative, he also has a sense of humor that puts you at ease. He is creative, and wants to see his student succeed. He makes learning fun! Ken is filled with talent, and is able to break down any tune and teach it to you in one session. All he asks, is that you practice. He will help to shape even the most tone def person, into an incredible improv musician. I have seen him do this on more than one occasion. He taught most everyone I knew growing up, how to play the guitar or the bass. Whether you are just starting out, or you are beginning again; Ken goes out of his way to help his students to feel confident, inspired, determined, and at ease, no matter what level they are at. I still ask Ken for his expert opinion on music I have composed. I have had refresher sessions with him, and even put my five year old son into lessons with him! I would recommend Ken over any other guitar teacher. If you are considering taking lessons, look no further. you won't regret it.
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!!!
On going guitar lessons would recommend Emily to family and friends.
Tim works very well with my teenaged son. He is very professional and seems to care deeply about teaching music. I would highly recommend Tim to teach your kids how to play the guitar.
I am am adult student of Mark's. I began lessons in the Spring of 2008. When we first talked, I explained that I had played some (chords only) as a teenager for 3-4 years but then gave it up as life took over. Mark asked me some good questions about my goals and objectives. I liked him immediately. He sourced a very good starting guitar for me-in my case an acoustic as I lean that way (although I'm now playing electric as well), and at my first lesson he explained that we were going to start at the beginning and he planned to teach me to read music. I scoffed, but six years later (and several more guitars!) I am overjoyed with my love for music. Theory, history, technique and backstory all accompany my lessons. I can read sheet music and understand the concepts the math and the history. I recommend Mark to anyone wanting to learn not just the notes or the chords, but the "why" behind it. Kids, adults, beginners-doesn't matter. I've watched him with students from very young kids to senior citizens and he gets it. He knows how to relate to all students and how to get through to each of them on a personal level. Aside from being a genuinely good guy, he's a darn good player too and can teach things that I could only imagine possible when I started. I look forward to every single lesson after 6.5 years!
Very professional, well educated in music, very positive.
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.
Great teacher! Very knowledgeable!
Zakk Abitz is the lead guitarist and vocalist of the popular local band, Bad Habitz. Zakk Abitz is looking to teach beginner to intermediate guitar lessons (electric and acoustic). He is very good with people and loves what he does. Every lesson is filled with disciplined learning, but still fun filled and interesting for the student.
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 offer beginner to advanced guitar and bass lessons. I teach electric and acoustic. I play & teach rock, blues, jazz, country and other styles.
I am a professional teacher and a professional performer, not just one or the other. I have a strong background in music theory, which I combine with learning to play by ear. I have experience working with all age levels and backgrounds.
Being largely self-taught, with some help along the way- I have a "non-traditional" way of teaching using patterns, computer software such as Capo, as well as teaching the basic music vocabulary that a new musician may come across. Having been a Professors assistant at the Tech College in Madison I can proudly say that I can communicate effectively with anyone willing to listen, and I can tailor my presentation in many ways so it is easily understood. I also have built an electric guitar and know how to properly adjust guitars to make them easier to play, sound better and keep them "healthy."
I teach guitar, theory and basic skills to students of any age above 10. I charge $20 an hour and work from home right now, as I am a stay-at-home father.
I have been playing guitar for nearly ten years. I am young and entirely self-taught, so I know exactly what it takes to learn when you're just starting out!
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'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 am a multi-instrumentalist. I have been playing for 15 years now with multiple bands in the Milwaukee area and with an extensive music background.
