I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles.

My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined!

Daniel K. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Composition, Dance, Drum, Ear Training, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Singing, Songwriting, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba, Upright Bass

About Me

Daniel, a former faculty member of Columbia College in Chicago, is a studio and live performance singer and musician based in Chicago. His teaching and performing experience spans three decades, and includes expertise in the studies of voice, guitar, piano, bass, drums, and trumpet, along with music theory, arranging, and composing. He is a Lincoln Academy Student Laureate who holds a BA in Music Composition, and has attended graduate courses in education at Roosevelt University and DePaul University in Chicago. He has taught students of all ages at private studios, public school, and college.

Daniel is described by his students as a natural teacher. He prefers to be regarded as an advancing student, and takes the journey along with his students to guide them towards their goals with a friendly, positive, efficient and productive approach. He feels that music is within all of us, and a desire to learn is a sign of talent, so anyone can develop their musical abilities with methodical practice.

The musical journey for Daniel began at an early age with trumpet and piano studies which became a passion for him by the age of 14. He was the drum major of the high school marching band, and successfully completed a paid contract to arrange music for the high school jazz band which performed in a state beauty pageant. He began teaching privately after high school, and continued playing in bands, and composing original music. He formed a professional jazz ensemble under the name of the Chicago Jazz Players by the age of 22, and developed his arranging techniques while having it performed by an eighteen piece orchestra consisting of many great local artists. It was in this environment that he gained experience with brass, woodwinds, and rhythm instruments. He was granted a position at Columbia College as an instructor at age 29 where he taught theory, sight singing, musicianship, ear training, harmony, orchestration, and composition. He scored the music for several plays, and conducted his own pieces with Chicago Symphony and Lyric Opera Players. During those years he found himself playing the guitar and singing more than anything else. It was in 1995 that he focused on singing and playing the guitar with his rock band. He has produced several CD recordings of his original music in his own studio, and has helped produce local bands and artists. He performs regularly in the Chicago area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Daniel exhibits patience and care with each student, and develops an individualized approach based on clear goals with practical procedures. Most beginners can expect to have a working knowledge of music notation and how it applies to their instrument within three months, and should be developing fluency in performing music that they enjoy within six months. Advancing students will enjoy the rewards that will follow by studying with an experienced teaching musician that will recognize strengths and weaknesses, and recommend proven techniques for personal musical development. Studying music should be fun, fulfilling, and in harmony with the needs and desires of the student, and this is key to the philosophy held by Daniel.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Eight track recording gear; grand piano; guitars/bass (acoustic & electric); cables/amps, drum kit and percussion.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide lesson materials, and always have a metronome with me. I expect the student to have an instrument. I prefer that a student has a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.Customized approach to the individual based on needs and goals.

Justin C. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

English, Music Performance, Music Theory, Phonics, Piano, Reading, Songwriting, Trumpet

About Me

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. I also just 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, so I believe that I can accommodate the differing musical desires of all of my students. My mission is to help you discover who you are as a musician, which, in my opinion, has a strong connection with our personalities and how we interact with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
***NOTE: I will be able to give lessons to those residing in the Evanston/North Shore area starting in October 2013!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When we begin our lessons, try to enter in with few expectations and I will do the same; I believe that strict expectations from the beginning can create unnecessary boundaries and conflicts within or between the teacher and student. We will take it a day at a time. All that I know is that I want to help you. I want to discover the things that you would like to do better on your instrument, and push you in a direction of progression so you can more effortlessly express your personality through your music. We will not strive to "make you better" on your instrument, but rather strive to simply make it easier to play. I believe that is a vital distinction to make, and it will make approaching your instrument much less arduous. We will work hard and push our limits every day, but we will relax through the process. My primary goal is to learn as much from you as I hope you will learn from me!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand and any necessary music technology. Students should only need provide something to take notes with and their instrument, as well as an optimistic attitude. I will make sure to bring the latter as well. :)

*** Specialties ***
Jazz improvisation and conceptualizations, trumpet fundamentals, piano fundamentals

Voytek F. Rolling Meadows, IL

Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Trumpet

About Me

Hi, my name is Voytek and I love music! I currently do over 200 shows a year and in addition to performing as a soloist, I play in 2 gigging ensembles. Thanks to music, I've been able to meet many incredible people and travel all over the world to Germany, New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and the Dominican Republic. My goal is to inspire my students and share with them my passion for music so they can also experience how wonderful and rewarding it really is. Let's rock some jams!

*** Lesson Details ***
While teaching lessons, I like to keep the atmosphere relaxed but productive. I utilize many proven traditional teaching techniques (for example: scales, theory, exercises, drills and prepared pieces) however, I also try to keep things fresh with fun backing tracks and music theory games to keep students engaged. I am also very flexible and open to suggestions, so I encourage students to ask questions and let me know if they want to learn a specific song or musical concept.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is equipped with a 76-key keyboard, drum set, music stands, recording equipment and a PA system. Plenty of parking available, either in the driveway or on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
In order to teach at a student's home I will need a quiet room/area where we can concentrate on our studies. If the student is taking drum or piano lessons, they will need a drum kit or piano/keyboard. Also, a boombox/CD player may be necessary if we need to play with some backing tracks.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet - Jazz & Classical

Drums - Everything from Jazz to Rock, Waltz, Cha-Cha, Metal etc.

Singing - All Pop music, old (Frank Sinatra era) and new (The Temptations) and newest (artists of today).

Audio Recording & Production - All styles, such as Rock, Pop,
Cinematic, Hip-Hop, Country etc.

Piano - Beginning piano, building a solid foundation.

Music Theory - I can answer questions and teach the concepts.

Having trouble with your band/choir part? Preparing for an audition and want to get first chair? I can help!

Parris F. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Trumpet

About Me

Hello, my name is Parris F. I am a recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago, receiving my degree in Instrumental Jazz Performance. I've been playing the trumpet for 14 years and have taught lessons on and off for the past two years. Currently I am a full-time musician, splitting my time between freelance gigs around the Midwest and touring nationally with my band, The Heard. When teaching, I focus on the fundamentals of the instrument to help teach the students to "tame" their instrument. If the student is ready and interested, I also teach jazz lessons, helping the student to expand their knowledge on jazz music, history and improvisation. These lessons include teaching the students jazz standards, jazz theory behind improvisation, and transcriptions. How far the student and I go is completely up to them and lessons are customized to reach the students specific needs.

Kellyann W. Bolingbrook, IL

Subjects Taught

Classical Piano, Classical Voice, Ear Training, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Trumpet

About Me

From a young age, I was enamored with music and blessed to have parents who encouraged this passion by providing me with a variety of lessons. It is a privilege to pass on this love of music through lessons to a new generation of learners!

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Music Education and Sacred Music with emphases in piano and voice from Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, IA, and have taken several graduate level professional development courses that have enhanced my abilities as a musician and teacher.

Throughout my high school and college careers, I was involved in many musical groups, so I know the challenges that accompany the pursuit of excellence and a full schedule. This has given me an understanding of students' needs while maintaining high expectations.

Along with teaching, I participate in the music at Book Road Baptist Church in Naperville (also an available lesson site), where my husband serves as the pastor.

I am a substitute teacher as well, currently working for Plainfield 202 and Valley View 365U, and I have connections with Indian Prairie 204. Because of this, I have completed background checks with the Will County and DuPage County Regional Offices of Education.

I moved to Bolingbrook in mid-2013 and thoroughly enjoy our friendly neighborhood just north of Independence Elementary School. I look forward to welcoming you to my in-home studio!
