Featured South barrington Guitar Teachers

David K

Instruments:

I have a diverse background in multiple musical styles and instruments. I also have ample experience teaching students of all ages.

Jon N

Instruments:

I've been playing guitar and singing since I was 13 years old, and I've been in many local bands since then. After high school, I went on to extend my education in music in both MATC and Carroll University. I'm currently in a blues-rock band from Milwaukee called "Jonny T-Bird & the MPs."  We perform almost everywhere in Southeastern WI at least 3-5 times a month.  I hope to eventually make my music career a full time job.

Alison K

Instruments:

I was a teacher in the public schools, and I wanted to be able to give more one-on-one attention to students. I wanted to be able to teach in a way that uplifts students and makes them excited about music. I also wanted to be able to make students feel comfortable and have fun. I have a degree from Vandercook College of Music in Music Education. I like to teach using the Vandercook method and give students a strong foundation on their instrument. 

Jonathan R

Instruments:

I have been teaching guitar for the last 12 years, and playing for 19 years. Since I've started, I have been lucky enough to share the stage and become friends with some of the best musicians in Chicago. I have gained experience in a wide variety of musical settings and situations. Three of my most memorable experiences were playing at the UIC Pavilion to 10,000 people, auditioning at the Royal George Theatre, and performing Electric Guitar with the La Porte County Symphony Orchestra. I have been very fortunate to have all of these experiences as a musician and at a young age.

Stephan S

Instruments:

I have been teaching guitar in the greater Milwaukee area for 16 years and have had hundreds of students. With an Associates degree in Occupational Music, I combine text book fundamentals with a creative outlook and professional stage experience. I encourage students to have fun with their instrument as opposed to making learning guitar a chore. I start out with simple techniques to get my students playing quickly. Once the comfort level is achieved then I go back and show them the theory behind what they learned. A comfortable and stress free environment is key to the success of my teaching. Professionally I have been playing in a heavy metal band for 12 years and have shared the stage with many national acts including Damage Plan (Dimebag Darrel), Mudvayne, Type O Negative, Hell Yeah, Wednesday 13,  KMFDM, Custom, MSI and multiple 4000 plus shows with Marilyn Manson.  Beginners to advanced players are welcome along with everyone ages 9-70. I specialize in teaching the basic elements of playing guitar, music theory, scales and soloing, improvisation, your favorite songs and how to write your own songs, rock, blues and metal. I'm a rock n roll guy and my lessons rock as well. I love to inspire others and help them to reach their dreams.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students will benefit by starting off playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. If an older student finds it comfortable enough to do so, they may wish to begin playing on an electric guitar. There are many different student model guitars, which can be purchased for between $150-$200. Additional costs will be incurred for those wanting to play electric guitar, as amplification and cables will need to be bought. Consider that higher quality instruments are easier to play, and will increase the chances of the student liking it.
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take them to the teachers studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher who fits your needs and schedule.
At Musika, our teachers create lessons plans that are specifically customized to meet the needs of each individual student. Our experienced teachers can develop the skills of a complete beginner, or help to take an advanced players skills to the next level. Students can expect to learn such things as; how to correctly hold the guitar, learning the notes on the fret board and how to tune their instrument. Students will also learn techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and will learn to play various scales and chords, such as open chords, power chords and barre chords. They will learn how to combine these elements of guitar playing to create or cover complete compositions, as well as learning music theory and how to read music. Last but not least, our teachers will help students to realize the joys and fun that learning to play the guitar can bring!
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. At Musika, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals, whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced level player. It takes time, dedication and patience to acquire the co-ordination, techniques and skills necessary to meet your aims. Those who commit to taking regular lessons and daily practice will see the fastest progression in their guitar playing abilities.
Consider starting guitar lessons around age 6, and when a student shows lots of interest in playing the guitar. Young kids will do better with a half or three-quarter size guitar, while kids 12 and up can handle a full size acoustic or an electric guitar. If you are starting students at a very young age, just remember that they must have a minimum amount of hand strength and will have to practice every day!
