For nearly a decade, I have enjoyed working with students of all ages, skill levels, and musical interests.  As an instructor, I am committed to helping each student reach his or her individual goals and expectations.  Prior to moving back to the Chicago area in 2013, I studied at Eastern Illinois University, where I earned an M.A. in guitar performance and a B.M. in jazz studies.  Through my studies and experience, I was able to develop a well-rounded perspective on different musical and pedagogical styles.  As I return to the Chicago area, I hope that my mentorship will continue to guide students toward their own aspirations.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is beneficial for young students to start off by playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Older students who can manage to hold their guitar comfortably may wish to use an electric guitar. A brand new student model guitar can be purchased for between $150 - $200. Amplification and guitar cables will need to be bought at additional costs for those wanting to play electric guitar. Students who enjoy and like playing their instrument will develop faster, so it is important to try and buy high quality instruments as these are typically easier to play.
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.
The most important thing is that students learn how to have fun when they are playing the guitar! It can be a challenge to master the basics, and it does take a lot of practice, but with the proper teacher, students can be playing their favorite songs without too much trouble. Topics covered during guitar lessons include: learning the notes, open chords, and barre chords, learning how to strum and pluck with the fingers and pick, and also sightreading techniques and music theory.
Adults wanting to learn how to play the guitar may find it beneficial to have a clear goal in mind when starting their lessons. Beginner students may wish to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or an advanced player might like to develop a technical aspect of their guitar playing. Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. Learning and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time, but with regular lessons and practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and be well on your way to achieving your goals.
Students can start their guitar lessons as young as 6 years of age. We recommend that younger students begin by playing a half size classical guitar with nylon strings, as the smaller guitar and softer strings will be more comfortable to play. By the age of 7 or 8, most students are able to start forming chords, and can learn to play and sing along to their favorite songs. Around the ages of 10-12, most students are able to start playing a full sized guitar, and they generally become interested in learning to play rock music on an electric guitar.
