Jason Kramer's String Theory

Jason Kramer's String Theory

5.0 25 Reviews
I graduated from Illinois State University with a BFA in music. I don't use a cookie-cutter approach, rather I strive to tailor the material to meet each student's individual needs. I want my students to have a firm understanding of the actual grammar and interworkings of music as a language, the guitar as the voice. I have been teaching students of all ages and musical backgrounds for over ten years. I am currently playing in 3 bands and have also performed as a soloist.  ... View Profile

Abraham Peters Guitar Lessons

Abraham Peters Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: I teach beginning and intermediate guitar and beginning piano. Why take music lessons from me? I believe no two people learn the same way, then may be similar, but not the same (kinda like snowflakes) I create lessons that are optimized to promote your learning growth. How do I do this? Feedback. Your feedback is vital for me to customize your learning process. I will be patient and gentle with you, but at the same time I will push you out of your comfort zone into a rewarding atmosphere. My influences are: Andy Mckee, Don Ross, John Mayer and Jack Johnson My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the st ... View Profile

Michael Gray ~ The Best Guitar Lessons

Michael Gray ~ The Best Guitar Lessons

Do you want to become the best guitar player that you can be? If yes, then you need to work with the best guitar teacher you can find. When shopping for a guitar teacher, be aware of the huge difference between an amazing performance guitarist vs a trained guitar teacher with expert communication skills. The lessons market is flooded with amazingly talented guitarists that are highly entertaining to watch perform, but fall way short when trying to impart (or even explain) that knowledge to you, the student.Let me give you a short list of common problems I hear new guitar students are having:*I bought a guitar and a book but still have no idea ...
