Learn Guitar Chicago Guitar lessons in Chicago, IL

Rated Excellent
Rated Excellent from 3 reviews
I teach guitar the way I wish I would have been taught. When I first started my musical education, I had teachers who just gave me songs and scales without explaining why we were doing these exercises. Each week was about learning a new song and I didn't really know why.

I'm not a song-based instructor per se. I use songs as exercises in order to demonstrate certain musical principles and techniques rather than using songs just to learn the song. A few of the artists that I routinely use include: Clapton, Santana, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Black Crowes, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and a whole host of others.

Mitch is a great teacher. He makes learning to play guitar fun. His teaching method has made me explore music in a way that I could not have imagined. I highly recommend him as a guitar teacher for all ability levels.

I have been playing guitar for a long time, but never learned how to play lead before. However, after just a brief period of time with Mitch, I can already play some solos. I highly recommend Mitch to anybody else in a similar situation.

Mitch inspired me to follow my love of the guitar and I'm now proud to say that I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music and a professional touring musician. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn how to express himself through music.
