Michael S. Chicago, IL

About Michael

Like any musician, music is my life. I love to soak it in any way I can! Whether it be listening to records, jamming with my friends or watching all the live concert footage of Stevie Ray Vaughan I can get my hands on. I'm that guy you see in the supermarket who is bobbing his head to the music over the intercom while picking up a loaf of bread. Graduating as music major with a concentration in instrumental performance for guitar, I have developed many important skills that pertain to putting on a good show as well as being musically proficient. I have a love for Blues, Funk, Jazz and R&B music, and the ease of self expression in these genres. My undergraduate study combined with onstage experience has given me the time and instruction to learn how to blend with other musicians ...

Outstanding as an instructor, and a top notch musician.

I've had the pleasure of working with Micheal a lot the past few years, and he has shown himself to possess the proper patience and technical know-how to introduce new concepts to students in an engaging and useful way. His dedication to improving as a teacher and musician in all areas is also commendable, and that work ethic is something that he imparts on his students. Highly recommended.

Mich teaches guitar in our home to our 10-year-old daughter. What a find he is. He strikes the absolute right balance among humor, comfort, and moving her along with challenges. He has been responsive to every question I have had, and never made me feel like I was being a pushy stage mom. I feel incredibly lucky to have found Mich for my daughter and I hope they continue together for years to come.

Inspiring instructor!

Michael is a patient and passionate musician, which comes across in his teaching. As a beginner at guitar, I was nervous that I was going to be judged or talked to condescendingly but he understands what a beginner needs to know and really meets you where you're at with the lesson plans and expectations. Feel very comfortable asking questions and get honest and thought out questions. Definitely recommend for anyone at any level!
David B. Chicago, IL

About David

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 ...

David is great working with my 8 year old daughter. He is very patient, friendly, and outgoing. He quickly adapted to her specific needs and skill level since she has already had some lessons, instead of trying to start her all over from square one. Highly recommended!

David is hilarious, truthful, and extremely encouraging when it comes to piano! He doesn't tell me I'm doing great if I'm not in fear of getting a bad review (haha) ...he's great and takes moments to correct me if I'm doing something wrong. He's genuine and a great great teacher!! I guess I would recommend him. NOT. OF COURSE I WOULD!

Megan T. Des Plaines, IL

About Megan

I have a background in classical symphony and wind ensemble music. I have played the flute and piccolo for 13 years, graduated from the Visual and Performing Arts Academy out of Elgin IL in 2007 and received the Arion award for musicianship. My experience in teaching private lessons has been primarily with beginner to intermediate level players, who either would like to learn for the first time, or that currently play in an ensemble and would benefit from one on one focused study. I currently play with the Citywide Symphony in Chicago and also perform private events, such as weddings, in addition to teaching.

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.

About Justin

My name is Justin, and I am a musician (big surprise). I have been playing the piano for the past 17 years and the trumpet for the past 13 years. My primary emphasis is jazz improvisation, but I have a solid foundation in classical repertoire as well as the basic fundamental techniques of the trumpet and the piano. I am originally from Fresno, California, but I currently reside in the Chicago area. I completed my B.A. in Trumpet Performance at California State University, Fresno in 2011, and I most recently completed my M.M. in Jazz Studies at Northwestern University in June of 2013. I have been performing extensively as a professional musician for the past 10+ years, and I have been teaching privately for the past 5+ years. The variety of musical genres that I perform is quite versatile,

Mr C. is a very knowledgeable and talented trumpet player. I have zero experience with the trumpet and music for that matter, but he makes learning easy and enjoyable. He gives good tips and practice methods. Very down to earth and doesn't set strict expectations and takes it day by day. Would recommend to anyone.

About Annarita

My name is Annarita and I am a violinist from Des Plaines, Illinois. I began playing at the age of seven, and by the time I was in high school I realized I wanted to make the violin my career. I attended Loyola University Chicago and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. In 2010, I began performing with the Fox Valley Orchestra and continue performing with them today. I was lucky enough to have studied abroad during the fall semester of 2011. I lived in Vienna, Austria for a few months to expand my knowledge of classical music. I enjoy performing with different ensembles and I also have a passion for teaching. I worked with People's Music School in Chicago as a violin teacher and ensemble coach. Today I work with the Chicago Metamorphosis Orchestra Project as a ...
