Greetings from Chicago

Post by lmramsey » Thu Oct 04, 2018 5:07 pm

Hello from Chicago!

I'm excited to have found this site--I'm not completely new to guitar playing, but I've been looking for classical guitar teachers in the area without much success.

I started playing guitar when I was five, and took lessons from a teacher in my home state of NC through high school, with a little bit of classical instruction toward the end of that time. I haven't played much in the past 20 years, and would like to undertake a more structured practice. Although I can read music and have retained some basic knowledge of guitar playing from my early years, I am very, very rusty!

I'm interested in the Delcamp lessons on the site, but I would also love to find a local teacher if that's possible. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
Lara

Hi Lara, welcome to the forum from another member in the Chicago area. I think you'll find it both interesting and informative. Regarding local teachers, I was also searching earlier this year and I was able to find a good teacher through my local community college (Elgin CC).

Cathy and Larry,

Thanks for the recommendations! Julie Goldberg looks fantastic! And I didn't even think to look at CCs.

Welcome, Lara.

I'm ex-Chicago 'burbs (Des Plaines) and ex-NC also (RTP area).

The colleges can be a great place to find a teacher. My best ever instruction was a semester I had with Muriel Anderson when she was at Elmhurst College.
