Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Saxophone, Harmonica
I begin with the fundamentals of music theory that you will need to begin playing your instrument, and then I like to get straight into learning songs as quickly as possible. The student may choose what songs to learn (recommended) or I can make suggestions. You will learn a range of skills including tuning, instrument care, song struture, chords, soloing, and MUCH MORE. My goal is for you not just to learn to play certain notes or chords, but also understand why that note or chord fits where it does. This knowledge will be key to your success in composition and collaboration.
Teaching Methods: For beginning students I typically start with Piano Adventures by Faber. For adults, I try to offer what the student is interested in. For example, if the student's goal is to play popular songs "by ear", I guide my instruction accordingly and teach the student music theory and how to play the piano by chords.
Teaching Styles: I let each of students to progress at his/her own pace and concentrate on the activities they are most interested in. My teaching style's rooted in classical music and classical piano pedagogy, but I also incorporate other styles of music and offer my students alternative/contemporary methods of learning.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar
As a kid, I really disliked my piano lessons. as a teacher I want to put an emphasis on having fun in my lessons, because music, as i've come to realize, is one of the most fun activities to partake in. that being said, it is essential to know the fundamentals and techniques, so I will most likely use method books such as Alfred's or Hal Leonard's, especially for people starting fresh. But in conjunction with the books, I want to give the student opportunities to play what they want. I have a music notation software, which i've used to create simple arrangements of pop songs from artists such as Taylor Swift or Bruno Mars, or anything else I or the student think would be fun to play. I simply want to give the student opportunities to apply what they've learned to something fun early on.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar
My teaching experience goes back 9 years. Before I moved to Chicago for school, I lived with my parents in Springfield, IL and taught private drum lessons out of their basement. Although I did not have a lot of experience teaching, I realized how rewarding it was to see a student learn and gain confidence on their instrument. It was something that I wanted to do more and saw a future in teaching. After I graduated from Roosevelt University I had more time outside of academics to start a teaching practice. In 2011, I worked at Lynn Marcel School of Fine Arts in Hillside, IL. As a drum instructor I helped design a corruculum plan and taught younger students ages 8-14. In 2013 and 2014, I worked at School of Rock in Oark Park, IL teaching drum set, voice, and piano for students of all age groups. This was an interesting and new way of teaching for me because at School of Rock the students not only took private lessons, they got to perform in groups and played a recital at the end of each season. Also in 2014, I worked at The People's Music School in Chicago teaching music theory and group drum lessons for kids ages 5-14 and class sizes of 30+.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
