Daniel A. Schaumburg, IL

About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I am also a special education assistant and assistant wrestling coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South. Jazz piano and vocal instruction are my two main areas of expertise. However, I have also been composing, recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our current day and age.

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Daniel is a highly skilled piano teacher.

I have been very impressed with Daniel's instruction abilities - he is patient, tuned-in to whether or not I 'get it', and has opened the door to a whole new way to re-learn piano for personal enjoyment.

Chris is a true professional in both his teaching and playing capacity. He is very skillful musician and extremely knowledgeable of composition and theory. Although I'm a seasoned player, I was able to add to my music arsenal and easily improve my technique through Chris' teaching methods. If you're beginner just starting out or an experienced player that simply wants to improve your skills, I highly recommend working with Chris. He's a great teacher that really understands his students and provides the attention and coaching needed to achieve their musical goals. He's also a kick ass performer!!!

About Penny

ABOUT PENNY R.

I graduated from college in Virginia with a Bachelor of Music Education degree as a voice major, and minored in piano and violin. My teaching certificate was for vocal, instrumental and general music, grades K - 12, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Graduate school brought me to Indiana, where I earned a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. Migrating up to the Chicago area from there, I taught at a private music school (voice and small ensembles, as well as many faculty performances) before staying at home to raise our children, and teaching voice lessons privately in my Studio. After 30 years of teaching, I'm still at it, and I still love it!

I am a Permanent Professional member of Music Teacher's National Association (MTNA), Illinois State Music ...

I took lessons with Penny for about 4 years and it was the best thing I could have done for my vocal development. I have since moved to the west coast and am still sad, every week, that we don't have our lessons. My vocal technique and confidence increased dramatically because of our lessons.

Penny is gentle and kind, extremely focused, and I found her method of teaching worked very well for me. She is very meticulous, always observing quietly and adjusting the message so that you can absorb what you are ready for. She helps you to feel the sounds you are creating, to explore your vocal abilities in a safe way, pushing gently but never too much.

If you are lucky enough to be close to Penny, do try her classes!

In my experience of Penny this afternoon as Giuseppe's wife bringing our4 year old daughter, it was disappointing. I do believe these other reviews are probably accurate in Penny being a great teacher. But after my daughter left she was quite discouraged to sing. Penny is not good with young children which I'm surprised considering she is a Pre K teacher. My daughter was excited and willing to learn this afternoon only to be scared and not want to ever sing again. As a parent who paid for a lesson the last thing I ever expect from a professional is discouraging a child. To have my daughter in tears and not wanting to sing for her dad anymore is heart breaking. I may not be a professional teacher but what I do know talking about what a child should not do should not be discussed in front if child to have them discouraged. Children don't hear what they should do as much as they hear what they shouldn't. In my recommendation to any parent if your child is 10 or younger Penny is not the teacher for her. Quite frankly I don't want her teaching my child period.

Mrs. Penny R. is a fabulous vocal instructor! This is my fifth year taking lessons with her and my singing has vastly improved during this time. She is very professional and takes the success of her students seriously. She challenges me to sing as well as I can and gives many helpful tips for improvement, but in the kindest possible way. I would recommend her to people at all levels looking to improve their vocal skills.

About Steven

I have been playing music for 20 years. After majoring in music at College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn IL, I went to step up my level of study at the Percussion Institute of Technology (P.I.T.) at Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA in 2001.

Moving back to Chicago after L.A. in 2002 proved to be the right move as this is when I began my teaching career. With over 10 years of private music instruction experience, I have worked with Hix Brothers Music, Naperville Music, Roselle Music, Streamwood Park District, After School Enrichment Solutions, Band For Today, Guitar Fundamentals, Chicago Guitar Instruction, and also maintain a private clientele. Well into a thousand lessons taught, students have stayed with me for up to 7 years. You, the student, will gain all the experience I ...

Our son looks forward to lessons with Steve!

Steve is a great drum teacher! He has been working with my son for almost a year. He is very patient and has a nice sense of humor (which is necessary when training kids).

He conducts a review with my son at the start of each session and offers words of encouragement throughout. After the lesson is over, Steve always confers with me and objectively reviews the lesson's achievements, parts to work on, and goals for next week. Our family recommends him for young and adult students!

One of the best teachers around!

I have known Steve for many years as a fellow drummer and educator. We come from the same background as far as schooling and theory's on how to teach students. I have subbed for him several times and have always been impressed with the knowledge and skill level of even students that have been with him for a short time. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about starting or advancing their skills!

About Caitlin

FLUTE AND OTHER INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of St. Francis. As a requirement for my degree, I have been able to learn various instruments of all the different instrument families. However, my primary instrument is flute, which I have been playing for almost 15 years. I started taking private lessons 5th grade. I received four years of formal university flute instruction from highly regarded flute instructors. I have taught flute students ranging from third grade to twelfth grade. One of my secondary instruments is piano. I received four years of college instruction for piano. With my training and playing experience, I am sure to be able to help you improve throughout our lessons!

Caitlyn has done an excellent job instructing my son on the piano. She is very reliable and Ryan really enjoys learning from her. He didn't have any formal training prior to her, and he's learned a lot, and is really enthused about playing the piano.
