Martone M. Fox River Grove, IL

About Martone

I have performed professionally on stage and in the studio for over 20 years. I studied music with a double major in guitar and bass guitar. I also play flute and keyboards. I began my musical training at 10 years old learning how to play guitar. I have a deep love for music and began to teach what I know to others and found that teaching music is very rewarding. I like to help others discover the joy that comes from learning and playing a musical instrument. I am great with young students just starting out and make sure that learning their instrument is a fun experience. With teenagers and adults, I not only teach guitar methods, but also the basic principles required to "jam" with other musicians. I also work with bands and ensembles teaching basic performance techniques ...

Marty is an absolutely great teacher. He is very patient and encouraging. You learn plenty but it does not feel like a chore. He makes you want to play and practice the guitar.

Martone is an awesome teacher. I have learned much from him, and had fun the whole time. He has done a great job at making me feel wanted. He also has done a great job at going at my pace. On top of that, he has been really flexible in scheduling, there have been a few days I have been late or needed to switch my lesson's date and he worked with me to get it all figured out, pain free. If you are looking to learn guitar, Marty here has you covered! He is skilled, kindhearted, and easy going.

Sara is amazing, and I recommend her as a vocal instructor for a variety of ages and needs. I’m an adult student learning guitar and wanted to be able to sing along without embarrassment. I have no vocal training nor performance experience and did not know where to begin. Sara is very encouraging, and is able to explain things clearly and guide me through learning how to sing. I've been making remarkable progress and gain more confidence and technique with each session.

I have seen a few teachers over the years. One who is currently a professor of voice at a prestigious university. One who holds many degrees in voice and speech pathology. Each has many successful students. However, none have been able to fix my problem. I started teaching myself voice after I "discovered" that I had a decent one when I first went to music school. However, I taught myself incorrect techniques which resulted in actual, physical pain. Since then I have spent years trying to correct this problem. I don't know exactly what Sara said or did, to be honest, but somehow she managed to dig inside my brain, connect the right neurons, and BOOM I can sing without hurting myself. It seems a bit sensational but it's the truth. If you want a voice coach who is professional, understanding, knowledgeable, and above all kind, then take some lessons with Sara.

About Kimberly

As a participant in All State choir in high school, the only female in the U-46 district to make District 9 state Jazz choir, and the recipient of over 20 awards for singing, I'm at a place where I can use my experiences to help you start your journey! I've been singing and playing my instruments for all of my life. My talents have taken me across the United States and back, even singing the National Anthem on Fox for the World's Strongest Man competition. Having a passion for music, I picked up piano and guitar at a young age and studied both for years, finding new ways of combining the two with voice and also being able to play them separately or simply use them for songwriting. Whether you're interested in playing piano, guitar, singing, or doing a combination, we will find your ...

Vocal Training · In studio
Kimberly is the best teacher I've ever had. Growing up in Barrington, we had a wide variety of private tutors and vocal trainers. My mother once put me up for private sessions for three months before my school musical. I thought I had received good training. Thought. My mother referred me to Kimberly after hearing her sing at a venue. I perused some of her videos and I must say that I was highly impressed. I signed up for a lesson, and my vocal range increased magnanimously! I am now able to sing in octaves in which I previously was unaware existed. My range is now more comfortable than my boat shoes whilst I cigar with the boys. I would recommend Kimberly to the highest degree possible and then some. If you don't know Kimberly, you are nowhere near your potential in vocals, guitar, or even life.

Wonderful Teacher!

Hi I am Matt Ellis and I have been taking lessons with Kimberly for about 5 months.My singing ability has improved incredibly.When you sit in on a lessons with Kimberly she analyzes your voice very carefully and matches exercises to what she thinks is best for you.Personally I have had trouble with sustaining my voice for long periods of time due to vocal damage.I noticed right away after my first couple of lessons my voice just seemed healthier and in better shape with the exercises we did.Now my voice sustains better than ever!With a larger range and I now have a ear for Harmony as well. I would suggest Kimberly to anyone who wants to improve there voice and learn in a very comfortable environment.Within the first 10 minutes of my first lesson I was totally comfortable to just let loose and sing!Without being worried about my tone because she creates a very safe atmosphere for improvement.So If your looking for great lessons and a great teacher GO TO KIMBERLEY!
