I have taken a lesson or 2 over the years. I have had paid lessons from most of these and some gave me free info or short one on one type lessons. Also a list of people I know would be good to learn from and will if given the chance. These lists are in no particular order. Some of these teachers i have marked local to me meaning they live in the Indy area)

14.1

Sailor in Racine WI (has taught many people, 100 ball runners and more)
Jeanette Lee (coaching mid game during play not formal lessons / local)
Alex Lely from Holland (seminar 14.1 and technique 2 days)
Blackjack/David Sapolis
John Schmidt (mini lesson while playing in WV / much info absorbed while watching 14.1 together at DCC over the years I wish I could work with John on my game)
Danny D
Grady M
SJM (defense / play / ancillary not formal class / feedback while playing)
WillieBetmore (taught me a lot knows alot / very informal / playing partner / local)

Mark Wilson
Stan Shuffett
Earl Strickland / Johnny Archer (Seminar)

There are a lot of good teachers. I recommend a lesson or two if you want to learn. I just wish I had the time to play more. I work a lot of 70-80 hour weeks so my play suffers but I will take a lesson anytime I can make it work. It is good for me and good for the teacher.

The best thing for me would be to have a coach meaning a teacher who constantly works with me on my game. I have never had a real coach the closest I came was with Jeanette when she lived in Indy. The ongoing input and reinforcement is much different than a lesson. I wish i had taken more advantage of that when she lived her but work and life got in the way. If you can get such an arrangement with any great player I would highly recommend taking advantage. A good teacher working on your game constantly is huge for anyone's games.

Lessons are not of much use without time on the table. And then you have to compete whether with leagues or tournaments or action. Some sort of serious play is required to move your game up.

Play pool people I wish you all straight strokes.

Lots of good instructors out there but I gotta go with the local boy on this one. I've been to several instructors throughout the U.S. and Anthony Beeler is by far the best I've been to. He actually has college degree in teaching. I guess that is why he is so easy to understand. He writes instructional articles for several of the magazines too. He has lots of good stuff you won't see anywhere else.
