About Me

About VOICE: I firmly believe that with the right training, anyone can sing! We all have the instrument built-in after all! Are you tone deaf? I can fix that. Crack on high notes? I can fix that. Nasal? Hoarse? Can't hold long notes? All of these are common vocal problems that can be easily be solved through guidance and practice. Trust me, no one ever regretted taking voice lessons!

About PIANO: How often do you sit down at a piano and wish you could just place your hands on the piano and magically create beautiful music? Piano is a challenging skill, but certainly not impossible. Learning to play the piano, even if it's never mastered, is such an incredible joy. Learning piano helps you to improve so many other skills as well, such as singing, any other instrument, and even math!

About ME: After completing my Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance at North Park University in Chicago, I moved here to NYC in 2010 to pursue my loves of music, acting, and education. Currently, I work as a Teaching Artist through Wingspan Arts, act in short films, and sing in concerts, operas, and musical theater productions around the city. I have been teaching acting, modeling, voice, and piano to children and adults of all ages for the last seven years. My goal is to professionally fuse my passion for music, theater, and education while continuing to learn, grow, and share the beauty and magic of the arts with others.

In my free time I enjoy movies, Broadway shows, cooking, exploring New York City, rock climbing, and swimming with sharks!

*** Lesson Details ***
For kids and adults alike, learning either voice or piano, I believe that you learn a lot more, and a lot faster when you feel comfortable and are having fun. With me, you will find an instructor who is patient, professional, motivating, challenging, and above all, encouraging. And fun. Did I mention fun?!

For voice students I like to use a mix of Broadway, Classical, and Popular music, depending on your needs and desires as a singer. I always assign a "teaching song" (a song that is good for training your voice) and a "fun song" (a song of your choice that you would like to sing just for fun!).

For piano students I like to use the Piano Adventures series by Faber & Faber. These are fun musical pieces, most of which are adapted from familiar classical works that have been arranged to teach you a certain technique.

For both, I always incorporate a balance of technique, music theory, and creative interpretation.

For acting students, it completely depends on your goals! We will work on different types of scripts, audition technique, and business skills for getting started in the real world!

Each lesson will likely involve warm-ups, games, reviews, new concepts, rehearsal, coaching, assignments, and rewards.

During our lessons, we will set short-term and long-term goals based on what you want to accomplish as a musician, what you expect from me, and what I feel you should be working on. I believe rewards are definitely appropriate!

Each one of the you has your own unique voice, hands, and ideas of what music means to you. My job is to get to know you and your musical self, and then design exercises and songs that will specifically fulfill your needs as a musician. Skill and technique are extremely important when learning to sing or play a musical instrument, but we must never forget what drew us to music in the first place! While we work on technique, we will also be discussing creativity, and the art of self expression, and have tons of fun in the process!

About Me

I'm not just personable and qualified but I truly love to mentor young enthusiasts the arts like music and I believe the importance of adapting my teachings to each students needs and desires. After over 13 years of studying Music in both here in the US and in Brazil I've come to realize through my parents and my creative mentors and peers that I should teach kids and continue to pursue art, music and education by doing so. It's important for me to be part of the cultural enrichment of society.

I have an easy-going, yet structured approach that allows each student to achieve results effectively at his or her own pace. I believe that there is a connection between music, movement and language that intertwine and support each other through the development process. I specialize in teaching all kinds of styles from Classical, Pop,Bossa Nova in guitar, piano and music theory lessons. I Love to emphasize various playing techniques, music theory, ear training, music reading, and more.The materials for teaching varies.

Guitar, Piano, Music Theory and Performance is what we do !
Various methods but traditional to alternative... particularly presenting students with simplified arrangements of standard classical repertoire concentrating on sight-reading and writing composition as well as playing all sorts of variety of music genres.

I specialize in spreading the joy of learning music by having fun while teaching my beginners and intermediate level kids.

David B. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Clarinet, Drum, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

Originally from Indiana, David has been teaching music in both the private and public school sectors for 12 years. Getting his start as a drumline instructor with only 4 students, David soon expanded his teaching to include both guitar and piano, which he studied under Frank Puzzulo (of Miles Davis' group) at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

Upon graduating Ball State, David moved to Colorado to study jazz and classical music with Dr. Douglas Walter, an accomplished percussionist who is known for his versatility and multiple percussion talents. He also studied piano and guitar in his off time, jamming with several rock and jazz groups both in and out of school.

In 2006, David left the college scene with a Masters in Music and moved to Florida where he began his teaching career. In Florida, David taught roughly 70 students, ages 5 to 18, at Wewahitchka High School and Middle School. He was beloved by the town, helping out in the community as a local organist for the Presbyterian Church and as a frequent contributor to Wednesday night worship.

As wonderful as this time was, David gave up the gators and swamps to move back home to Indiana in 2007. Here, he took a job at Kokomo High School and Maple Crest Middle school where he resumed teaching students from 5th graders to seniors in all areas of music, including wind, strings/guitar and percussion. David established the first ever "rock and roll" class at the high school in 2008, a program that started with only 5 students and has ballooned to 38 in this current year! The class consisted of guitars, keyboards, bass and drums, all of which David can teach at a professional level.

Most recently, David graduated with his second Masters in Jazz Performance from DePaul University. He studied primarily with professor Ron Perillo, unquestionably the most innovative piano player in Chicago and with Bob Palmieri, a gifted guitarist. Having now graduated, David is devoting himself full time to teaching private students and looks very much forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Although David has a laid back personality and approach to life, he takes his job very seriously. He prides himself in not being the kind of teacher who is there simply to entertain and hope the student learns something in the process. Though you will most certainly have a good time, you should only take from him if you really want to become a great musician/player. Having been a highly qualified public school teacher for 5 years, David has more experience than most private teachers you can find. He knows what it takes to achieve greatness and he knows that most students, in the end, respect that more than a half hour "jam session."

David will tailor his curriculum to each student. Every student is expected to have a notebook with staff paper and a pencil at their lesson. Students will also be assigned a book to purchase (in some cases more than one) and he/she will progress through it at a pace appropriate to his or her level.

More than anything, what you will see in David's lessons is his love for music and teaching music. It is truly a special thing to be gifted in this art, and he believes that anyone who is willing to put in the time, the effort and the dedication needed will be rewarded and enriched in the end.

David is also available for online lessons via Skype! He loves taking advantage of this modern technology in his lessons and is happy to take on new students in this format.

*** Studio Equipment ***
He has a fully weighted digital piano, electronic keyboard, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, clarinet, flute and various percussion equipment in a room completely devoted to music. Can accommodate seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own guitar/bass, but any drum lessons or piano lessons would require the student to have the necessary instrument at home.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in non-wind instruments, especially drums, percussion, bass guitar, piano and rock guitar. I consider myself extremely versatile with various styles and genres. Piano lessons are taught on a wonderful, fully weighted 88 key keyboard. I apply several teaching methods to reach as many kids as possible, with a focus on hands-on learning.

Subjects Taught

English, GRE, Harp, Piano, Violin

About Me

Harp
--
After five years of begging my parents, I started playing the harp when I was 11. I started competing at 14, performing gigs at 16, and teaching at 17. I consider myself lucky because I found my passion early. I loved it from the beginning. But I also believe it doesn't matter when you find it: start from wherever you are and embrace it from there.

Also at 17, I played with a local city symphony €” my first symphony experience! By the time I was entering college, I was drawn to Celtic music, a soothing, folky counterpoint to classical. I do both!

Piano
--
I began my piano studies at age 9. I love what piano does for ear training, for visualizing theory, and for all around musicianship! The piano is versatile and fundamental. Bach and Kabalevsky are my favorites for piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that persistent creativity is the most important skill I bring as a teacher. If one explanation, process, or method doesn't work for my student, I will create another.

I work to help students find and keep access to their internal motivation to play whatever it is and however it is they want to play.

Students get to set their own goals, and I get to help them reach them. If performance level play is what my student wants, I'll move with them toward that. If they want to play only five pieces for personal fulfillment, enjoyment, or even healing, that is what we move toward. I work with students to help them generally stick to whatever they set for themselves. If they commit to themselves to practice every day, that's what I expect; if they commit to themselves practice in feast or famine waves, that's what I expect. Together we find the cadence that works for the student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in my home in a room dedicated to studio teaching; music stands, benches/stools, 3 harps, keyboard

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a harp for rent; otherwise, I expect the student to provide the instrument and the books.

*** Specialties ***
- Folk and classical harp (both pedal harp and lever harp), also some jazz harp (pedal harp only)
- Classical and modern traditional piano, folk and pop keyboard
- Classical violin

About Piano

Learning to play the piano can be a very enjoyable hobby. The benefits of learning to play a musical instrument cannot be overstated!

The piano is a common instrument for beginning musicians, and many students choose piano to broaden their education as well as their physical and mental performance capacities. Piano is fun to learn, and with dedication and practice, most students can play several simple songs within a month or two.

Our friendly piano teachers offer both traditional piano as well as electric keyboard lessons. We also have teachers who specialize in wide varieties of musical genres, including jazz, blues, classical, country, rock and more.

It's no surprise students learn faster when taking private piano lessons. It simply cannot be compared to watching video ...
