Jason Kramer's String Theory

Jason Kramer's String Theory

5.0 23 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

First of all, I love all music. Here is a list of some of the things I am proficient in and can teach you: Genres (blues, rock, country, slide, classical, metal, pop, punk), Technique (strumming, lead playing), Theory (note-reading, scales/improvisation, chord construction, timing/rhythm), Composition (putting it all together- songwriting!). And this is all only the beginning. That said, I come to each lesson with a plan, based off how I feel the student learns and what their goals are. I am patient and let the lessons move as fast as the student is willing. I have taught literally hundreds of students over the years; 3-yr-olds to 75-yr-olds ... 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

Frequently asked questions

How much do guitar lessons cost?

The average cost for guitar lessons is $40 per hour. Available for all ages and all skill levels of guitar playing, the pricing of individual or group guitar lessons can start as low as $20/hour. Teachers charge based on their location, years of teaching, levels of knowledge and expertise, and travel time (if applicable). Lessons can last from half an hour to a full hour, and are priced accordingly.


How long does it take to learn guitar?

If you just want to learn a few chords to strum along to some songs, then learning to play the guitar really isn't that hard for most people. Many students are able to learn a few chords and get a decent strumming pattern going after a few weeks. If you've had prior experience playing an instrument, you can expect to pick it up after just a few lessons.


Should I take guitar lessons online or in person lessons?

Private in person guitar lessons with a skilled instructor that is focused on you, your interests, and your progress is the most sought after experience and hard to replicate online. Plus, you tend to learn faster in person. On the other hand, online guitar lessons are quickly becoming popular. The selection of teachers is not limited to those in your geographical area and you can communicate via video in real time with your teacher in the comfort of your home. When filling out your request on Lessons.com, we recommend you select both online and local options, then compare your options and see what works best for you.


How old should children be before starting guitar lessons?

A child as young as 4 can begin to learn if they are really motivated and have a patient, creative, and devoted teacher. However, we've found almost all kids under six are too young to benefit from formal guitar lessons, as they require dexterity and levels of concentration children their age can't provide. That being said, lessons do not need to be formal right off the bat, and can just provide a fun introduction. Also, your child may benefit from using a ukulele to start, as it's smaller and easier to learn, but very similar instrument.
