Gates Scholar Specializing in Writing, Test Prep, and Study Skills

I have over 11 years of experience playing guitar live and in the studio. While I am most experienced in guitar for rock, pop and blues music, I also have some experience playing jazz and bluegrass. I have taught intermittently since high school and specialize in beginning guitar for students interested in rock and pop music. My lessons move at the student's own pace and are dictated by their musical interests and goals. I am an experienced tutor and curriculum designer based in Chicago.

Reading, Math Tutor with Classroom Experience

I have been playing guitar from about the age of twelve. I first learned by ear how to make chords. Later on, I played with others in high school and took music classes in college which taught me a basic knowledge of guitar. I can teach basic and intermediate level guitar players. I cannot read music notes, but I can read chord charts. My philosophy about tutoring is that it should be something educational with a positive vibe. Students today have a lot of pressure to perform in and out of school. We need to give our students help but also let them feel confident about what they do and w [more]

Fun, experienced tutor in writing, reading, and music

I've played guitar for at least 30 minutes every day since I received one as a gift on my 12th birthday. That makes it nearly 13 years, now. I studied under a classically trained guitarist who'd been playing for 40 years and learned a great deal about chord theory and musicianship. I've taught several people (with skill levels ranging from "I've never held an instrument" to intermediate experience) how to play, trying my best to be a patient, thorough teacher. I like to focus not only on sheet music, but on helping the student learn the music they love so they can interact with it directly. I' [more]

Patient and Laid-back Tutor!

I have been playing guitar for the past seven years. I have worked in numerous studio settings and lead music with a guitar every week at my church. My portfolio of recorded works continues to grow and develop consistently. Hello, friends! I'm passionate about drinking the best coffee and about pursuing excellence in music and live sound. This translates into a lot of time spent working from a laptop with a guitar close by. In learning to teach guitar to others, my approach has been to take the music that you love and to make that the focus. Be inspired, play well, have fun! For the past fi [more]
