Kirk M. Joliet, IL

About Kirk

About two decades ago, I bought my first guitar from a pawn shop in Las Vegas and have been playing and loving music ever since. During and after college, I spent most of my time in the music scene of Las Vegas. I also spent much of that time (about 12 years) studying and gathering information about playing and music composition.

Benefits from taking these lessons...
I have decades of music theory education, self teaching and playing experience. The unique lesson course I have developed can easily benefit any student. From the very first lesson, I teach the universal language of music theory (the structure of all music) and show how to apply the theory. A student can then apply the same knowledge to any instrument, including singing. The student can also read music, write ...

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.

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!

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.

About Beth

I am a professional performer and teacher. I have been working in the Chicago area since 1986 and enjoy a nice balance between teaching and performing. I am a member of the Illinois Philharmonic, and have been a substitute in most of the other orchestras in the area. For 5 years I was the principal substitute for the St Louis Symphony and I currently travel from time to time to play in orchestras out of state and sometimes out of the country. I love teaching, passing on the experiences I have had over the years. Many of my students do very well at IMEA and other competitions. I try to instill a love of music which has evolved into many students participating in the music programs at their college, even if they are not music majors. Students have also gone on to professional careers ...
