Featured South barrington Guitar Teachers

Marian I

Instruments:

I am an experienced teacher that has worked with students of all levels. I work with students from their very first day with the instrument to advanced levels, teaching them all aspects as they work on their favorite music. I believe in challenging all students to work to their greatest ability so that their full potential is reached!

Mudasir C

Instruments:

As someone looking to teach professionally, I love to share my knowledge with others. I graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a BA in Music, and am now pursuing my MA in the Humanities, focused in music at University of Chicago. As a musician I've performed at many venues, including Mundelein Hall in Chicago, and The Chapel of Our Lord in River Forest.

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. 

Alex I

Instruments:

I first picked up a guitar when I was 13 years old. I played and took lessons from a great teacher all through high school, but didn't think it was a viable career option, so I went to college for physics. Eventually, I got very serious about my guitar playing, and ended up moving to Boston to study jazz performance at Berklee. While I was studying physics, I always had a part time job teaching guitar lessons, and really developed a passion for it. I always loved that while I was teaching I constantly learned new things! 

Abby B

Instruments:

I am a passionate and encouraging music instructor specializing in guitar, music theory, and songwriting. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music in Songwriting & Guitar Performance. I have gigged extensively in the Boston area and Midwest as a singer/songwriter, performed on various studio sessions, co-written songs in several genres, and played guitar for other musicians. My music has been featured on college radios and online blogs, and I have been fortunate enough to play the Berklee Performance Center, Faneuil Hall, and Harvard Square. I moved to Chicago in 2014 to pursue my love of teaching and performing.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

The easiest way for a guitar lessons student to find out what kind of guitar to buy is to ask their teacher. Your teacher will know what local shops have fair deals, and which shops do a good job of setting up the instrument. Young students and beginners may find an acoustic guitar easier to play on and handle, while teenagers will probably want the power of an electric guitar so they can jam with their friends in the garage.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
At Musika, we suggest that adult learners begin their guitar lessons with a clear and achievable goal to work towards. For beginners, this might be to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or maybe to develop their own compositional skills! Advanced players may have a specific technique they wish to improve or to take their general playing to the next level. Learning to play the guitar can take time, and it may take months before you start to realize your goals. With regular lessons and practice, our teachers can ensure you achieve those goals.
Children need three main things in order to begin guitar lessons: physical dexterity in their hands, patience and commitment to practice between lessons, and the maturity to work well with the teacher. It takes a lot of hard work and daily practice for students to improve to a point where they can play their favorite songs - parents play a big role in determining a students success.
