Gabriella P. Wheaton, IL

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Spanish, Viola, Violin

About Me

A recent graduate from Illinois Wesleyan University, Gabriella has earned her degree in Violin Performance and will be continuing a Masters in String Pedagogy. A few notable performances she has participated in is two solo recitals, concerts with the Danville, Wheaton and Illinois Wesleyan Civic Orchestra, and many performances with her quartet, including performances at the Consular Corps. Ball in Chicago. She has developed an advanced repertoire for her instrument and greatly enjoys imparting what she has learned with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student is expected to attend each lesson scheduled with all materials prepared over the week. Students are expected to practice no less than 5 days each week. The student must be engaged and active in each lesson, music is so exciting! It is highly encouraged to participate in local orchestras and chamber music programs as well as tend concerts available in the area. These events are tremendous learning opportunities!
Although I am not a "strict" teacher, I do adjust my expectations to each student and do expect each student to make progress from lesson to lesson. Within the first few months together, I can assure better posture, a more comfortable playing experience and strong technical foundations. I will start with Suzuki method with supplementary materials from other technical books and as the student progresses we will look at other pieces outside the Suzuki curriculum.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the dining room area. Seating is available. 4 dogs kept outside during lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide music copies and a stand if need be along with articles I would have them read and objects to help technique (i.e. a rhythm egg). I would expect the student to have their own instrument and accessories.

*** Specialties ***
I am most familiar with the Suzuki Method and the Harvey Whistler technique books but I like to incorporate a variety of styles such as Eastern European and Spanish traditional dances.

Silvia S. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

Fiddle, Viola, Violin

About Me

I have been teaching since I was 17 years old, so this has become a passion very dear to me. I manage to engage and motivate my students in each lesson, by providing them with the guidance they need, and making it enjoyable and fun rather than tedious . Learning so much from great teachers have changed my life and approach to music, so I feel honored I can now do the same with my own students, encouraging them to improve and develop new skills that will take them to the next level in the process of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to use the Suzuki method for beginners, combined with Essential Elements. Etude and Scale books are also helpful. All these can build a solid technique that will allow students to express themselves and communicate through music. As I go along with a student, I use a variety of materials that will suit each individual the best, since not everyone learns in the same way. Besides Classical music, I teach other genres such as country, jazz and latin music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stand, Chairs, Piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a metronome, tuner and music, I expect students to have a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I mostly teach classical violin and viola, but I have taught fiddle before, jazz, pop, country and Latin music styles. I know of methods that will help students explore different genres of music.
