Jason Kramer's String Theory

Jason Kramer's String Theory

5.0 33 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

I've taught hundreds of students over the last couple decades (and then some) and I've learned how to work with so many types of people. Some people like to move quick, some people slow. Some people are more visual, some learn better by listening. So my service stands out by my ability to hone my lessons towards each individual. I treat each student as an individual that I truly care about and want to see succeed. Beyond that, below is also a list of just some of the things I can teach you wheter it be bass, guitar or ukulele: Genres: blues, rock, country, classical, metal, pop, punk, indie, funk, r&b Techniques: strumming, lead (includi ...

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?

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 ...
