Hi name is Conrad Flater and I am a classical guitar performance major studying under Thomas Kikta at Duquesne University's Mary Pappert School of Music. I specialize in teaching students the Aaron Shearer method, a method of learning the guitar that breaks the instrument into a mind body and person connection. Not only will you learn proper fundamentals and very important basics that many players skip, but you will also achieve mastery of sight reading, finger picking, and a full understanding of how the hands work with the brain and how to increase your dexterity and coordination. I don't teach you how to play songs using tabs, I teach you how to become a musician first and a guitarist second.

It is lifes greatest joy to see my students achieve something they once thought to be impossible through means of hard work and practice. I love being able to watch my students grow into great talented musicians and use the lessons learned on the instrument and apply them to life.

    Taught me to play guitar when we were both only 12 years old. He makes it so easy to learn and teaches great techniques. His understanding of musical theory truly makes him one of the most talented guitarists ive ever known. Cant imagine learning guitar from someone else.

    Wow, where do I start? Conrad, by far, has the most knowledge and experience with a guitar compared to anyone I have ever met. He knows what he is doing, and he does it well. I didn’t want my lesson to ever end, I had so much fun learning and he made the lesson truly enjoyable. 5/5 stars from me, definitely recommend this wonderful musician. (He has a beautiful singing voice as well by the way)

    Was in PIT for a week and wanted to try out some lessons from a new person. I’m originally from Milwaukee WI. During this lesson with Conrad I learned new things I haven’t thought of. Overall I feel as if I left with a better understanding of the guitar. He even gave me his number at the end to cal with any question while playing! Such a great teacher and he’s just getting started !!

    Frequently asked questions

    For a new student I would like to see where they currently stand, and what bad habits they play with and what good habits they play with. The main goal is to replace all bad habits with new and improved ones. I tend to start all of my students advanced and beginner, with the study of the anatomy of the human hand. Becoming a good classical guitarist or any style of finger picking, requires a great understanding of how the human hand works.

    7 years of lessons at Wisconsin academy of music 

    currently enrolled in a bachelor's guitar performance program at Duquesne university.
