About Owen

Howdy! I've been playing a stringed-instrument of one sort-or-another since the wee age of 6 and in a variety of contexts, from full orchestras to rock bands to world-class recording studios. I've composed original music for theatrical productions and mastered classical pieces for solo violin performance. I learned my instruments through a combination of private instruction, self-education, and years of real-world experience.

My first instrument was violin, which I started playing in fourth grade; I started private violin lessons in sixth, and continued with the same teacher until I was 20. At age 16 I started playing guitar and electric bass, and shortly thereafter picked up mandolin, ukulele. . . basically whatever stringed instrument was needed in whatever band or ...

Gregory M. Hickory Hills, IL

About Gregory

My passion is teaching! I could search my whole life, and never find anything I enjoy doing more. You could call it my "calling," for lack of a better term. That's probably why I've been so successful in my career. I've taught students as young as 4 years old, and students who are in retirement.
The success I've had, comes with years of taking private lessons, performing, studying, and always keeping an open mind to new ideas, and relating my experience with all my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
One of my first objectives, is to make a student enjoy each lesson. I believe that if a student feels comfortable, and has a great time learning, they're going to want to practice and learn more of the skills necessary to achieve their goals, and as a ...

Nicholas K. Merrillville, IN

My mission, is to create a private and educational environment to students of all ages. One that enriches their senses to music, through reading, writing, ear training, performance and technique.

About Nicholas

Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends. He enjoys playing lots of Motown, funk, and jazz, but is proficient in Classical, Rock, and Blues as well. When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children. Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of ...

Mr. Kelvin is a very skillful musician and a passionate teacher. Just a couple of months into learning piano, the 30 minute weekly lesson at Mr. Kelvin's studio became a fun activity my 5 year old daughter is enjoying every week. I can tell that she is having fun every time at Mr. Kelvin's studio, and she just loves learning piano there.

Kudos to Kelvin! He played an integral part in preparing Nick for his audition with the Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra in Atlanta. The best part is that Nick passed the audition and will be joining the orchestra later this month. Kelvin and Nick have a great connection. He truly supports my son's love of music.
Patricio L. Chicago, IL

About Patricio

I remain current in a wide variety of musical styles including Jazz, Rock, Blues, Classical and Mexican Folklore. I have also worked playing Greek music. My teaching experience includes teaching children in primary school, as well as individuals of all ages.

After thirty years in my musical career, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn is when there is joy in the study. I have a musical academic foundation, while obtaining an A+ status during my musical studies. Yet for me, the act of making music is more of a spiritual and auditory process than that of physical workmanship.

Perhaps like me, you find that you have diverse inclinations with regards to musical styles. I will help you attain a clear path to follow in achieving your musical goals, while ...
