Excellent experience.
I came in as a low intermediate player and after only a few lessons I feel much more confident! My sight-reading and technique approved a great deal in a short amount of time.

My two daughters are having a wonderful experience with Jesus. We've had about 7 lessons so far and I can't believe how great they are doing. He's a fantastic teacher, he's patient (especially with my restless 7 year old), encouraging and motivating (they love to practice!). We love his teaching style and how he incorporates history and information on various composers and his students, his passion for really shows. We are absolutely thrilled with Jesus.

About David

Drawing from my 20 years of experience tinkering in the guitar kitchen, I teach guitar and music theory to students of all ages and abilities in the Chicagoland area. I received my Bachelor of Music degree in 2004 from Ithaca College in Upstate New York, where I studied Jazz and Classical guitar in addition to music theory, history, and recording. Since graduating I have gone on to perform extensively in New York and Chicago, primarily in a genre pioneered by guitarist Django Reinhardt and called "Gypsy Jazz". I have also filled roles as lead guitarist in musical theatre pit bands, scored original music for films (including the Emmy Award-Winning documentary "100,000"), and taught hundreds of lessons in private, group, and workshop formats. I teach electric as well as acoustic guitar ...

My 10-year-old really enjoyed his lessons with David. He learned a lot and was excited to go to every lesson. David is very calm, patient, and great working with kids. He is very positive and motivational. David knows how to get the best performance out of his students. We really appreciate all his help and efforts. If ever our schedule allows, we would love to come back and take many more lessons.Thanks for everything!

Highly creative

David is a highly skilled and creative guitarist, and encouraged me to explore free creative expression in playing and practicing the guitar. I looked forward to what I might be able to learn from him with excitement. Unfortunately, due to schedule incompatibility, I disappointingly realized that it would be difficult to continue to try to work together - for both him and myself.

struck a chord =)

So happy that TakeLessons suggested David as my instructor! He has been immensely patient and dedicated to progress in playing and theory. I wish I had friends in the area that were interested in guitar so that I could refer to him.

About Nicholas

I was born in the West Suburbs and began playing bass during high school. I moved to the city to attend music school at Columbia College Chicago, which I concluded with honors in the Spring of 2013. Since then, I have had the opportunity to play with a variety of bands at venues such as the House of Blues, Cubby Bear, Abbey Pub, Elbo Room, and others. With a firm grasp on a variety of styles of bass playing, such as pop, R&B, rock, alternative, blues, jazz, etc., I have had the opportunity to perform with numerous artists making original music in Chicago. Over the past year, I have also spent time touring on a national and international level with the Nick Moss Band, a blues outfit based in Chicago. With a style firmly rooted in traditional music theory, I have a strong grasp over the ...

As a fellow music instructor I know a great teacher when I see one and Nick is one of the best. His high level of musicianship and extensive knowledge inspires everyone around him.

Aside from being an amazing player, Nick is a kind and reliable person. He is great at breaking concepts down and explaining them in a clear way, which is essential for helping students through their most difficult challenges.

If you are looking to become the bass player of your dreams, Nick is your man!

Great students make great teachers!

Nick was my bass student at Columbia College - he also studied with Chuck Webb. He was an excellent student, always motivated. punctual, enthusiastic and right on top of all the assignments.

He has turned into a terrific professional player and will make a fantastic bass teacher. He knows the instrument inside out and is an excellent communicator. I highly recommend him to teach you or your child the bass guitar.

A wonderfully knowledgable teacher and mentor

Nick has an immense amount of music theory and bass technique knowledge but I think the thing that sets him apart is his patience, reliability, passion, and his belief in others. Nick has a wonderful work ethic and will work hard to provide his student's with whatever they need.

Joel is an amazing teacher! He is knowledgeable and very passionate about his career. His style goes far beyond just a point and sing approach, he makes it a point to get to know each of his students and goes above and beyond to learn their voice type and learning style so he can better understand how to train them. In the four years I studied with Joel he not only trained my voice but also trained me in proper singers health and etiquette (Vocal health tips, Proper stage dress etc.) He helped me prepare multiple theatre and college audition repertoire and also inspired me to pursue a career in vocal performance. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone who wants to further their knowledge or begin a new journey in the world of music.

It’s hard to put into words what Joel W has done for my voice. His teaching ability extends far beyond just imparting proper technique, though he does that extremely well. The way he is able to delve into how my mind works, how I experience music, and how I learn and then to teach me in language that I am wired to understand is an incredible gift. He not only expedited the process of my progress but he also opened the door for me to discover the rich artistry of singing: the textures, the colors, the emotions, and the carefully crafted details of a beautiful voice.
Far from a cookie-cutter approach, he helped me to find my unique voice and celebrate its strengths. He is always eager to give me the tools I need to become the singer I have always hoped to be and, under his tutelage, I cannot believe how far I have come."

I trained with Joel in Arizona for a year. I gained confidence as a singer as I started to understand and apply the technique. You know that he is knowledgeable because of the degrees he carries but I would add that he is knowledgeable in the operatic technique and the voice overall because of his own application that he demonstrates in the studio to get his point across. He has a great voice and you can hear him utilizing the technique that he teaches. He makes it a point to get to know you and how you learn so that he can better explain things. He is serious about his profession, owns his own opera start-up, and is also a performer. If you are willing to work, you will not be disappointed by the results you will hear.
I can confidently recommend him to anyone who is looking to learn how to sing and/or improve their voice!
