Featured South barrington Guitar Teachers

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.

Sam A

Instruments:

I’m a 25 year old graduate of Iowa State University, with a bachelor’s degree in World Languages and Cultures. From January 2012 until May 2013, I studied guitar and Contemporary Writing and Production at the Berklee College of Music. When I was 13 years old, I started taking weekly percussion lessons. Not long afterwards, I picked up the electric guitar, and was eager to teach myself. Since then, my musical interests have expanded to include arranging and production.  

Nate R

Instruments:

My musical education began at a very young age, amidst the folk music traditions of the Allegheny Mountains in western NY.  I never had access to private instruction, though, so I have always been passionate about sharing my knowledge with students.  I was self-taught as a kid, and eventually received a scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music, and later a graduate fellowship from the University of Oregon, where I received my Master of Music in Jazz Studies.  I have followed a career across the country, working as a freelance instrumentalist and educator from coast to coast, as well as internationally.

I will help you attain a clear path to follow in achieving your musical goals, while providing theoretical and auditory techniques.My personal goal is that the study of music becomes closer to the experience of playing music.  He estado en contacto con una gran variedad de estilo musicales, incluyendo rock, jazz, blues, clasico y folclor mexicano. Incluso he trabajado tocando musica Griega. Tambien tengo experiencia enseñando en escuelas primarias academias de musica y a particulares.Tal vez tu como yo tienes diversas inclinaciones en cuanto a estilos musicales. Yo podria ayudarte dandote un claro camino a seguir para alcanzar dichas aspiraciones, proveyendo todos los fundamentos teoricos, tecnicos y auditivos.Mi objetivo es que el estudio de la musica sea los mas cercano a la experiencia de tocar musica.

Paul W

Instruments:

I love to teach my students the basic tools of what it takes to be a professional musician, whether or not they are into music as a hobby or as a serious profession. I currently play drums for the hit Broadway musical (non-union version) of Rock of Ages and when I'm not on the road; I'm teaching. I’m an avid columnist for Modern Drummer Magazine and I sing/play guitar for one of Chicago's best Nirvana tributes called Smells Like Nirvana. I studied at Berklee College of Music and I have a huge passion for teaching. I offer the option for students to get their lessons recorded via audio/video so they have a reference to stay on task for their next lesson.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students are advised to start off by learning to play on a half sized or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Older students may wish to start on an electric guitar, as long as they can hold the guitar comfortably and competently. There are many different student model guitars, which will set you back $150 - $200. This does not include the price for cables and an amplifier, which will be a necessary purchase for electric guitar players. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student a greater chance to enjoy their learning.
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!
Many adults take guitar lessons! Your teacher will develop an individualized lesson plan relevant to your musical needs and goals. Adults taking guitar lessons for the first time can expect to learn a lot of new things, and have fun in the process!
Students can start their lessons as young as 6 years old with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to comfortably handle a full size guitar around ages of 10-12, which is when many students become more interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric model.
