About Derrick

Derrick began playing the drums at the age of 8 in the elementary school concert band. He started out on just a snare drum but when he was 12, he got his first real drum set, and started a life of music.

Fast forward a few years and Derrick had experience playing in jazz bands, marching bands, concert bands, steel pan calypso band, along with his local garage band. After high school, Derrick moved to California to attend the Musicians Institutes in Hollywood California. There he studied under some of the greatest professionals in the business, and was exposed to a wide variety of music styles ranging from, Latin, R&B, Jazz, Funk, Rock, etc.

Great teacher!

Great with my daughter (age 7). She looks forward to her lesson every week, and is learning rapidly. He has great patience and has gotten to know my daughter and listens to her feedback while at the same time offering encouraging instruction.

Great Drum Teacher

My daughter had been taking private drum lesson for years before she started with Derrick. At the first lesson, Derrick told her how important it was to feel the music, other than just working on technique. That was exactly what she needed to work on. Derrick has a broad experience with playing different type of music. He likes to show her how to play, which helps her understand right away. He is very nice and patient. He is flexible and reliable in terms of lesson schedules. He uses lots of references, songs and exercises in his teaching. Now, my daughter enjoys her lessons and practices a lot more.

Derrick is everything a Teacher should be.

I have known Derrick for several years and can attest to his playing and teaching prowess. He is a well schooled percussionist, drum set player and teacher. Even though I have played professionally for over 40 years, I still come to Derrick to get a different perspective and guidance in my playing. Derrick is the perfect blend of technician and musician all rolled into one! While he can improve a beginning to advanced player's technique, he also stresses the need to play musically. This is an important aspect to anyone wanting to 'up their game'. The fact that he is a truly nice person only adds to his other attributes. You can't find a better teacher in the Chicagoland area. Period!

About Penny

ABOUT PENNY R.

I graduated from college in Virginia with a Bachelor of Music Education degree as a voice major, and minored in piano and violin. My teaching certificate was for vocal, instrumental and general music, grades K - 12, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude.

Graduate school brought me to Indiana, where I earned a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. Migrating up to the Chicago area from there, I taught at a private music school (voice and small ensembles, as well as many faculty performances) before staying at home to raise our children, and teaching voice lessons privately in my Studio. After 30 years of teaching, I'm still at it, and I still love it!

I am a Permanent Professional member of Music Teacher's National Association (MTNA), Illinois State Music ...

I took lessons with Penny for about 4 years and it was the best thing I could have done for my vocal development. I have since moved to the west coast and am still sad, every week, that we don't have our lessons. My vocal technique and confidence increased dramatically because of our lessons.

Penny is gentle and kind, extremely focused, and I found her method of teaching worked very well for me. She is very meticulous, always observing quietly and adjusting the message so that you can absorb what you are ready for. She helps you to feel the sounds you are creating, to explore your vocal abilities in a safe way, pushing gently but never too much.

If you are lucky enough to be close to Penny, do try her classes!

In my experience of Penny this afternoon as Giuseppe's wife bringing our4 year old daughter, it was disappointing. I do believe these other reviews are probably accurate in Penny being a great teacher. But after my daughter left she was quite discouraged to sing. Penny is not good with young children which I'm surprised considering she is a Pre K teacher. My daughter was excited and willing to learn this afternoon only to be scared and not want to ever sing again. As a parent who paid for a lesson the last thing I ever expect from a professional is discouraging a child. To have my daughter in tears and not wanting to sing for her dad anymore is heart breaking. I may not be a professional teacher but what I do know talking about what a child should not do should not be discussed in front if child to have them discouraged. Children don't hear what they should do as much as they hear what they shouldn't. In my recommendation to any parent if your child is 10 or younger Penny is not the teacher for her. Quite frankly I don't want her teaching my child period.

Mrs. Penny R. is a fabulous vocal instructor! This is my fifth year taking lessons with her and my singing has vastly improved during this time. She is very professional and takes the success of her students seriously. She challenges me to sing as well as I can and gives many helpful tips for improvement, but in the kindest possible way. I would recommend her to people at all levels looking to improve their vocal skills.

About Jessica

A 2006 college music graduate with 10+ years experience teaching flute, I enjoy instilling the passion of music and the character of practicing to children and youth alike.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will take flute students in elementary, middle, and high school and prefer to teach in my in-home studio. I recommend the Blocki flute method and use hands-on teaching techniques. Apart from learning good posture, breath support, and embouchure, we will study theory, scales, etudes, and classical solo repertoire.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music, hymn playing, and church music.

About Kent

I am a graduate of Kansas State University and I am currently attending dental school at Midwestern University in Downers Grove. I have experience tutoring biology at the college level, and worked for two years as a teaching assistant. I love spending my free time learning everything I can about science, politics, and even appropriate grammar.

I have seven years of experience teaching piano to students ranging from 4 to 54 years of age. I knew when I was three that I wanted to play piano, and I love teaching others so that they can experience the same joy that I feel when I sit down to play. I started playing organ at the age of 14, and was playing for my church congregation by 16. In addition to my own recitals and competitions, I have played for a number of church and school choirs, ...

FLUTE AND OTHER INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of St. Francis. As a requirement for my degree, I have been able to learn various instruments of all the different instrument families. However, my primary instrument is flute, which I have been playing for almost 15 years. I started taking private lessons 5th grade. I received four years of formal university flute instruction from highly regarded flute instructors. I have taught flute students ranging from third grade to twelfth grade. One of my secondary instruments is piano. I received four years of college instruction for piano. With my training and playing experience, I am sure to be able to help you improve throughout our lessons!

Caitlyn has done an excellent job instructing my son on the piano. She is very reliable and Ryan really enjoys learning from her. He didn't have any formal training prior to her, and he's learned a lot, and is really enthused about playing the piano.
