About Jeff

I have been working as a freelance musician and private instructor in Chicago for fifteen years. During this time I have been hired to perform Jazz, Rock, R/B, and world music. As an instructor I have maintained a studio of five to twenty students on a weekly basis. I hold a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Northern Colorado in Percussion Performance, and a Master of Music degree from De Paul University in Jazz Studies. *** Lesson Details *** With committed weekly practice there are no limits to a student's potential. I like to use the term guide to describe my teaching style. In a relaxed atmosphere, the student and I are working together to advance their musical goals. Sometimes goals are reached quickly, more often we need more time and repetition to advance.

**Excellent** drum instructor, highly recommended

Jeff is everything you'd want in a drum instructor: he is highly skilled, has thorough knowledge of drumming styles and technique, and he is an excellent communicator. On top of that he is thoughtful, polite and listens carefully. This is all a very, very rare combination.

I had to play a couple of slow gospel tunes for a church service this summer; Jeff very quickly found suitable and tasteful grooves for me that were within my capability to play. He also worked with me on some rudiments and provided invaluable feedback. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Let me begin by saying I have never EVER written a review for someone, nevertheless, had singing lessons. If you're looking for someone to expand your range, hit those high or low notes, make you laugh while subconsciously learning the material, make you comfortable while helping you reach you singing goal, and teach you strategies in singing-- Margo is definitely the person to do so. I am pleasantly impressed by her knowledge, singing, and teaching abilities. Definitely deserves more than five stars.

I enjoy working with Margo. She pulls me out of my comfort zone with ease. Margo's style of teaching makes it fun and interesting, yet I still feel that I am learning. I have only taken three lessons so far, and personally I hear and feel the improvement in my overall performance. She is great, and I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

I used to be terrified of crowds and speaking on front of large groups. I now have more self-confidence and poise when I give presentations after working with Margo. I am grateful to have finally overcome this fear.
