Need guitar lessons?
I teach blues, rock, funk, and hard-rock guitar.
Born in Chicago the home of the blues, Oscar Jordan has over 30 years of experience playing blues, rock, metal, and funk. He is currently accepting beginner to intermediate level guitarists for lessons.
Jordan teaches blues basics, music history, soloing strategies, theory, as well as signature guitar lines from your favorite guitarists. He shows you how to use these ideas to create your own personal voice. There's plenty of rock and roll, uptown blues, funk, and jazz concepts contained in the lessons. Study materials and recorded lessons are included.
"I've had many, many teachers over the years, and most show you what you should be doing, while very few show you how to get there. Oscar Jordan is one of those rare teachers who actually knows how to teach in a way that makes sense to the student and you actually retain what he teaches and he gives you a path forward. Oscar has helped me with everything from my technique, my songwriting, understanding music theory, and even understanding different equipment. I actually look forward to my lessons with Oscar. He really knows his stuff."
“Oscar is a wonderful teacher! I have been playing guitar for 15 years and after working with him, I learned more in 8 lessons then I have in many years with many different teachers. He is very patient, has great musicianship and theory and helps his students learn in way that is fun and effective. Oscar also creates guitar lesson plans so that you have set goals to accomplish and follows up to make sure that you have achieved them. Would highly recommend Oscar for any student of guitar, beginner or intermediate.”

“I've been working with Oscar for about a year and a half. Since that time, my guitar playing has improved dramatically! He is very knowledgeable about music, is good at breaking complex pieces down into simpler parts, and then helping put it all back together. There were some lessons we started where I thought "there's no way..." but by the end of the lesson I could play it well enough to go home and practice it. He's patient, has a good sense of humor, and takes you from where you are now and moves you toward where you want to be.”
