Private Guitar Teacher

After earning my BA in Economics at Harvard, I followed my true passion and began playing music professionally. I'm a Berklee Music College Alumnus, and I did learn a lot there. My guitar heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Jimi Paige, John Lee Hooker, Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. I love all the inspired by the greats, but as well as listening to my favorite guitarists, I also listen to just about everything under the sun, and appreciate all types of music.

I approach music lessons with flexibility. The joy of working one-on-one is that we can adjust the lesson to whatever the student brings to the table each time. Practiced a lot? Excellent! Show me what you can do. Having a difficult time with something? Not a problem; let me help. Feeling fatigued? It’s okay; I understand. We’ll take it a tad easier today. I’m sensitive to my students’ needs, and I’m more than happy to make learning an instrument accessible, whatever is going on.

I offer 30-, 45-, and 60-minute lessons. 30 minutes each week is enough, and it’s a great place to start. More experienced students usually prefer 45- or 60-minute lessons. The longer the lesson, the more opportunities for repeated practice, covering more material, and faster overall progress. Whatever lesson length you choose, you’ll get a lot out of it!

Prices are as follows:
$35 / 30-minute lesson
$45 / 45-minute lesson
$55 / 60-minute lesson

Generally, we start with a warm-up. Then, we proceed to go

Hello and welcome! My name is Britta and I am a piano and guitar teacher. I teach online as well as in-studio in Round Lake Beach, IL. I have been playing the piano since before I can remember. I took lessons from an excellent teacher from age 5 to 18. During that time, I performed in one formal

Britta is a patient, kind and fun piano teacher! I played piano as a kid but have been wanting to re-learn as an adult, and Britta has been the perfect teacher to help me make progress on my goals. She has a great set-up for either virtual or in-person lessons - mine have been great via video! I highly recommend Britta for piano learners of any age.
Alexandra
We have had Ms. Britta teaching our four boys since January 2018 and they have flourished in their musical knowledge and abilities! They were 4, 5, 5, and 7 years old when they began and they knew nothing about how to read/play music.

Britta has been patient, engaging, and encouraging with them and they have learned so much! We love hearing them learn and play. Furthermore, they genuinely look forward to their lessons each week - that's pretty amazing and speaks to Britta's ability to make learning fun and keep her students engaged while learning online.

We highly recommend Britta if you are looking for a piano instructor.
Becky
My two children have been instructed by Britta for the past few years. She is amazing, patient and kind. Britta is a very flexible teacher worked on guitar, piano and percussion with my children, even though percussion was a little outside of her comfort zone. My children agree that Ms. Britta is "nice", "explains things well" and "makes sure you get to work on things that are interesting to you". That is high praise from two teenagers! As a parent, I appreciate her flexibility in teaching venues offering both on-line and in person instruction. My kids progessed in their musical knowledge and abilities even though they did not always find time to put in the practice outside of lessons.

Cullen
I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him.
Sam
Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.
Brad
Tim is an excellent teacher, providing excellent advice, practice techniques, and insights. He makes learning and improving easy and enjoyable.

Private Guitar Teacher

For general education in learning to play guitar, we focus on learning chords, strum patterns, simple progressions and then easy songs. Students are encouraged to bring song ideas in - I probably have them already - so we can begin moving in the direction they want, the reason they want to play guitar, and achieve success in playing their favorite songs. Beyond that, it is up to the student how far they wish to go.

Spice Up Your Playing with these Essential Guitar Strum Patterns

Many guitarists have a tendency to focus most of their practice time and energy on left-hand fretting technique. Although the left hand is very important, mastering different rhythms and guitar strum patterns with your right hand adds a whole new dimension to your guitar playing. Understanding Guitar Strum Patterns Start by playing a simple chord progression. Ideally, you should be able to play through the chords without looking at the fingers on your left hand.
