Featured South barrington Guitar Teachers

Nicholas S

Instruments:

It gives me great joy seeing a student's enthusiasm and connection with the guitar as they develop their talent as a musician and human being. I also enjoy the interpersonal relationship that grows with the parent and child from the early stages into working through the teen years together. A music education not only fosters talent but builds a student's character both physically and mentally.

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.

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! 

Daniel R

Instruments:

Hi, my name is Danny. I'm a teacher, singer, actor, musician, composer, audio engineer, writer and sound designer. I've spent the last 20 years performing in NYC and all over the US and Europe with touring Broadway shows, bands, and theatrical productions. I've written music for musicals, rock bands, commercials, and movies, and have taught professional voice lessons to profesisonal singers and amateurs of all ages. I also teach guitar, and play piano. 

Shaun Z

Instruments:

A little about myself, I am a graduate from VanderCook College of Music where I received my Bachelors of Music Education degree. I focused primarily on classical guitar as my major instrument. I have a strong passion for playing guitar and teaching it. I have been teaching lessons for 6 years, and have had a wide array of students. I teach all ages and all skill levels.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Where possible, it is beneficial for younger students to begin their guitar lessons on a smaller sized guitar. Half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars are the most suitable guitars for young beginners. Older students who can manage to hold their guitar comfortably may wish to start out by using an electric guitar. For $150 - $200, a brand new student model guitar can purchased. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar leads, which are essential for an electric guitar player, and will therefore incur additional costs. Students will typically have fun and enjoy playing an instrument dependent on how easy they find it to play. Consider that higher quality instruments are often nicer and easier to play when looking to buy a guitar.
Need to save time because of your busy schedule? Why not try in-home guitar lessons. A Musika teacher can travel to your home and provide excellent quality instruction in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's guitar lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes on guitar, proper fretting, fingering, and strumming technique, how to read music, learning all open chords, how to play barre chords, how to tune a guitar, music theory, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the guitar!
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite song, write your own music, develop a certain technique or join a band, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! It can take time - often months - to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a good level. The best and quickest way to learn the fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Young guitar students will learn all aspects of how to play their instrument. They will be taught proper technique, and how to read music, all while working at their own individual pace. Our teachers will be able to advise you on what size guitar is best for the student, but typically younger students need a 3/4 or 1/2 size guitar, while teens and adults can play on a full size instrument. Our recommended age for beginning the guitar is around 6 or 7, since a young child needs enough hand strength to be able to play well.
