My name is Marcus VonRuden and I'm a former Milwaukee School of Rock teacher currently giving my own, more affordable, lessons in my home town, Cashton WI!
Despite going to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for film production, I found myself becoming more involved in music during my 4 years in the city working as a wedding DJ, production sound mixer on film sets, live music sound mixer, guitar and bass teacher, freelance producer, and freelance mixing & mastering engineer.
As for guitar and bass, I am completely self taught and have taught hundreds of beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons with students of all ages. It's my goal as a teacher to make the journey of learning as rewarding and fun as possible.
Payments are made in person with cash or check. Parents have access to a waiting area in view of the lesson area at all times.
All ages and skill levels welcome! Whether you're picking up a guitar for the first time, or wanting to take your playing to the next level, my lessons are designed for beginners, intermediate, advanced, and everything in-between. The content of the lessons will be mainly based on your goals. I will prepare for each lesson accordingly, but if you're just starting out and all you know is that you want to have fun trying something new, I have a flexible curriculum designed to teach all you need to know to become an advanced musician in a variety of genres and styles.
