John Barrera Guitar Lessons


About this pro

My teaching approach: the first 3 lessons are free and there is no contract. I do this because I think that people should get a chance to try something out that they are not familiar with. Musicians have their own individual voice on their instrument, I aim to develop that with my students. I am a very friendly and patient teacher because ultimately its about having fun. I encourage my students to ask me questions should they encounter during the week.My influences are: Paco De Lucia, Santana, some of the greats (David Gilmour Page, Hendrix etc..) Chili Peppers, Songwriters like Josh Ritter, Stephens,My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: Downtown, and surrounding areas. Wicker Park, Bucktown, Logan Square, Lincoln Park ,(possibly burbsGuitar Techniques: Guidance In Equipment Selection, Recording and Production, Song Writing, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Jamming Skills, Improvisation, Rhythm guitar, Lead guitarYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: Find out what their skill level is (none necessary). If students have any experience, I would ask them to play something they would normally play in their own time. If the student has no experience, I explain what it is going to be like learning to play. Its a lot of fun. Mistakes are part of the learning process. I am here to help.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Going over last weeks homework, then explain new material, and how to practice the new material. I typically set up a practice regimen that helps the student know exactly how much to practice to see results.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Wants to both learn their favorite songs, and develop as a unique musician.
