Pete Madsen’s Teaching Studio is Moving to Kensington,CAHey Folks,
– just north of Berkeley
Starting in September, 2013 I will be moving my teaching studio from south Berkeley to Kensington. For the past ten years I have been teaching at the 5th String in Berkeley. Sadly, the store will be closing after September and so I needed to find a new home. The new studio will be located inside the same building that is home to John Mello’s luthiery shop. So not only will you be able to take expert guitar lessons from a true professional, but you will have access to expert guitar repair and John’s exceptional instruments!

I'm a beginning guitar player and have been Pete's student for a few months and wanted to write him up here because I couldn't imagine having found a better teacher. I tried a few other people before going to Pete and the difference is amazing. While most guitar teachers know how to play, Pete also knows how to teach.
He's great at explaining things, great at showing technique, he sends an audio recording of each lesson to your email address (a HUGE help), and teaches you songs that you want to play. In addition to all this his rates are good and he's a cool, easy-going, guitar-loving guy…
looked forward to the class every week. Even though we were at different skill levels, Pete provided each of us with personal attention which inspired us all to practice. It was fun and rewarding to see myself (and all the other students) improve over the period of the class. Highly recommended!
