About this business
From Our Editors
Imagine a group of nationally touring guitarists and accomplished recording artists all beneath one roof, and none of them are playing a single note. It may seem like a waste of talent, but these musicians aren’t at Guitar Cities to play—they’re there to teach. Each instructor has been selected by Guitar Cities's staff who vets their teachers for mastery of their respective instrument, patience, an aptitude for communication, and sensitivity when informing students that air guitar is not considered a real instrument.
These instructors welcome students of all ages for guitar, bass, ukulele, drum, and piano lessons. Guitar Cities offers private instruction, group classes, and “choose your song” lessons. The staff will provide the instruments and a stress-free environment where students can learn everything from basic chords to music theory in various genres. They even have professional studio equipment on which students can record, and offer the chance for students to take the stage at the House of Blues for Guitar Chicago’s Rockfete concert.
