Alysia R. Glenview, IL

I have been performing music ever since I formally began my musical studies 20 years ago. I have participated in numerous music competitions, recitals, concerts, and auditions. In addition, I have done a great deal of research in optimal performance and stage fright and I can offer students tips and techniques to reduce their anxiety when it comes to performing on-stage.

About Alysia

Having taught piano and flute lessons for over 12 years in the North Shore. I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages (3 - adult), both beginner and advanced.

I enjoy teaching students the "classical music" repertoire. I also strive to give my students a solid foundation in music theory and history in order for them to truly understand and appreciate the roots and structure of the music. In addition, I want my students to really love playing music and so I strongly encourage my students to also learn to play music outside of the classical repertoire. I believe balance is key, so I generally teach students to play classical music as well as music from other genres (such as film music, pop music, video game music, holiday music etc).

About Diego

CURRENT LESSONS (2014)

- General Guitar Lessons for Beginners
- Finger-style Guitar for Beginners
- Classical Guitar (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
- Flamenco Guitar (intermediate and advanced)
- Rumba Guitar (beginner, intermediate, and advanced)
- Latin Guitar (beginner, intermediate, and advanced)

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM PRIVATE LESSONS?

The very first things we'll learn to do in our private lesson will be to RELAX, BE PATIENT, and HAVE FUN. Yes, mastering (or even just getting decent at) the guitar takes time and dedicated work, but it should always be enjoyable, relaxing, and should NEVER...BE...RUSHED. Ironically, by relaxing and taking it slow, you'll excel rather quickly and, more importantly, CORRECTLY.

Lessons are based on time-tested ...

Diego is a great teacher! I have been taking lessons from him for a while now and I have improved considerably. He is very clear with his teaching using the information learned through his information psychology. He explains why we must do something a certain way and this leads to a better understanding of flamenco and the guitar. He teaches not just guitar, but also how to practice. Diego is incredibly friendly and makes learning something so difficult manageable and fun!

Diego is a fantastic teacher and guitarist. He is generous and patient, encouraging and effective. Diego has the ability to simplify difficult technique and break it down in simple terms. His studies in Spain make him a rare and sought after teacher in Chicago. In short, Diego have given me the keys to succeed in this beautiful and challenging art form. I wholeheartedly recommend him!
Wendy P. Chicago, IL

I offer performance workshops that are designed to help students deal with the many aspects of vocal performance. These include picking the right material, working with musical accompaniment, finding the right keys for your songs, how to deal with performance anxiety, microphone technique and connecting deeply to your material. We also focus on warm ups , cool downs and vocal technique issues where needed. These issues and more and be addressed in private lessons as well.

Professional, Effective, and Challenging Lessons

Wendy is probably the most professional and talented voice teacher I have worked with in my time singing. She was able to quickly diagnose and help me begin to address difficulties I was having, but was also very proactive in helping me find repetoire that I enjoyed and that meshed well with my voice and my musical interests. She is extremely knowledgeable about the mechanics of singing, as well as the interpretation of song, and really challenged me to think through my singing in a way I hadn't before. Thanks!

I strongly recommend Ms. Parman for those looking to enjoy the process while making real gains.

Having taken both group and private lessons with Wendy Parman, I believe that Ms. Parman is an invaluable voice coach to casual and professional singers alike. She knows how to bring out the talent in her clients, and will helps bring out the best in each student through very personalized instruction. Along with a degree in music and vast performing experience, she brings sensitivity towards her clients as she individuates each lesson.

Through the lessons and workshops with Ms. Parman, I have seen a great improvement in my singing voice, the deepening of greater stage presence with ease, and I have grown in my confidence as a singer. She quickly got to know my vocal range and ability and handpicked songs and exercises that helped me develop. I got expert advice on expanding my vocal range and left each lesson with solid techniques I could use to practice on my own. She challenged me to push through what was in my way and I got results.

As her student, I have performing opportunities as she organized two events per month in a casual, supportive yet professional setting. (Singer’s Salon & Singer’s Spotlight) How else can you practice before a live audience and stretch in this area?!

I found her to be flexible with days and times for our lessons, as my schedule changes from month to month. And thankfully, she was willing to travel to my house or at other times we met in her studio.

I strongly recommend Ms. Parman for those looking to enjoy the process while making real gains!!

Christopher is a Great Teacher.

I am so glad I found him to be my Grandsons violin teacher. Kevin is 8 yrs. old and never played an instrument before. Christopher really knows how to relate to him on his own level. He makes learning easy and fun. Kevin looks forward to his weekly lesson and has learned so much already.

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.
