About Me

Growing up, I participated in every musical activity I could find: from choir to handbells, concert bands to jazz bands, and marching bands to rock bands. I love performing different types of music, but I decided to focus on classical clarinet performance in college. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2007 with a B.M. in Clarinet Performance. I also continued studying piano as a minor instrument at UIUC. Since then, I have revisited some of my former favorite pastimes: I teach handchime classes in schools, play in a rock band, and work for a jazz-oriented music/tutoring program.

Since graduating, I have performed several memorable concerts with highly skilled ensembles such as the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic and Wheaton Municipal Band. CJP is a one of a kind jazz orchestra, and with them I have performed two very well-received concerts at the Auditorium Theatre and one outstanding performance at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park in 2008, honoring Nelson Mandela. The orchestra blends two of my favorite styles of music: classical and jazz. The Wheaton Municipal Band is a more traditional band in the Chicago suburbs: playing marches, classical favorites, and pop medleys. Throughout the summer, the band gives free top-notch performances in Wheaton's Memorial Park. I have used my keyboard skills to perform at venues around Chicago (including Metro, Schuba's and Lincoln Hall) with Nick Miller and the Neighbors.

My diverse musical interests motivate me to teach. I enjoy sharing my love for music and artistic expression with students of all ages. I began teaching young clarinet students privately in 2000, while still in high school. After I began teaching group piano lessons in Chicago public schools in 2007, I decided to start teaching private piano lessons. Piano was the first instrument I took lessons on, and it has turned out to be my favorite instrument to teach beginners. I appreciate the freedom private lessons offer me as a teacher to tailor the lesson to the individual student. I understand there are many ways of learning and believe there are at least as many ways of teaching. My goal as a teacher is to pass on lessons of patience, creativity, appreciation, confidence and dedication to my students. I hope my students will apply these lessons to their musical studies and throughout all areas of their lives.

Music has been an incredibly powerful force in my life, and I love to bring it to others through instruction and performance. The best thing about music is it can touch anyone, even someone who has not studied it. However, I believe learning to playing an instrument will always deepen one's musical appreciation, while being a fun and rewarding experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want my students to leave their lessons with skills and confidence that will help them in all areas of life. It is important to me that I give my students the ability to keep learning outside of our lessons. I believe that music is an art form that should be explored and can be enjoyed by all!

Working with beginners is my specialty. I understand that each student learns differently, and finding the right method for my students is very important to me.

Piano and clarinet lessons begin with an assessment of ability and setting of goals. I like to use the Faber and Faber piano series with my piano students. Clarinet method books depend on the experience level of the student. All lessons are a combination of theory, instrumental/performance technique, and ear training.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect piano students to have a keyboard or piano for practice at home. Clarinet students should have their own clarinet and reeds. All students should bring all lesson books, worksheets, and notes to each lesson.

I have lesson books/resources that I can provide for the first lesson, and then I will work with my student to find the right materials for their level.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I specialize in classical clarinet and piano.

Eric M. Villa Park, IL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Broadway Singing, Clarinet, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. 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!

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a laid back atmosphere that is very productive. I use a custom curriculum that is catered to the needs and desires of the individual. Whether you would like to be a concert pianist, a jazzy horn player, or someone who wants to rock out to your favorite tunes, I have resources and experience to help you reach your goal. After three months you can expect to competently play a couple great songs and have greater fluidity and technique on your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a recording studio which includes music stands, keyboards, piano, amps, acoustic guitar, and seating available. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need the instrument of their study and their purchased study materials. If the student is taking piano, they will need an 88 key weighted keyboard or a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, but can teach classical, pop, rock, funk, blues, salsa, bossa nova etc.

Sean H. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Songwriting

About Me

I have been magnetized to the saxophone ever since I was introduced to the music of John Coltrane in the seventh grade. Since then I have been in a constant pursuit of deepening my understanding of music and all its beautiful forms, and sharing that knowledge with those who are interested!
Hailing from Flagstaff, Arizona, I attended Western Michigan University on a four year scholarship and received my Bachelor of Music, Jazz Studies in 2009. While I was there I had the incredible privilege of studying with the great Trent Kynaston, as well as performing with some of the most influential jazz musicians today, including Bobby McFerrin, Stefon Harris, Billy Hart, Fred Hersch, and Randy Brecker. I now live in Chicago where I teach lessons and perform regularly with my band, The Winchester Sound.
I am very passionate about music, and consistently see that passion transferred to my students. It is incredibly rewarding to see someone progress right before my eyes, and know that I influenced the progression.
I teach classical saxophone, jazz saxophone, piano, music theory, jazz/pop theory, music performance, arranging and composition.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe everyone gets into music for a different reason, and therefore each student deserves their own custom curriculum. It is important for students to work at a pace and in a direction that is comfortable for them. For this reason, we will start with a consultation so I can figure out exactly what you aim to get out of taking lessons. From there we will incorporate some standard curriculum and method books that I enjoy using, as well as my own techniques that involve plenty of ear training and exercises to improve one's facility on the instrument (scales, patterns, technique).
Most importantly, we're going to have a lot of fun! If you are not having fun it's not even worth your time. I am very laid back and promote a stress-free environment!
Remember, I was once a beginner, too. I know what it's like to learn something new, so I want to be there to guide you through it!

*** Studio Equipment ***
extra music room f/w keyboard w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide no equipment. Student must provide saxophone, reeds, books, etc.

*** Specialties ***
My passion is jazz. Not just jazz saxophone, but the art form in general. I love to teach people the theory behind improvisation and watch them as they explore and internalize the endless possibilities thereafter.
I am also classically trained and am equally proficient in that area, although I would say I do prefer jazz.
In summary I guess my specialties would be: jazz saxophone, jazz theory, improvisation, jazz arranging, saxophone performance, composing.

David B. Chicago, IL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Clarinet, Drum, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

Originally from Indiana, David has been teaching music in both the private and public school sectors for 12 years. Getting his start as a drumline instructor with only 4 students, David soon expanded his teaching to include both guitar and piano, which he studied under Frank Puzzulo (of Miles Davis' group) at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

Upon graduating Ball State, David moved to Colorado to study jazz and classical music with Dr. Douglas Walter, an accomplished percussionist who is known for his versatility and multiple percussion talents. He also studied piano and guitar in his off time, jamming with several rock and jazz groups both in and out of school.

In 2006, David left the college scene with a Masters in Music and moved to Florida where he began his teaching career. In Florida, David taught roughly 70 students, ages 5 to 18, at Wewahitchka High School and Middle School. He was beloved by the town, helping out in the community as a local organist for the Presbyterian Church and as a frequent contributor to Wednesday night worship.

As wonderful as this time was, David gave up the gators and swamps to move back home to Indiana in 2007. Here, he took a job at Kokomo High School and Maple Crest Middle school where he resumed teaching students from 5th graders to seniors in all areas of music, including wind, strings/guitar and percussion. David established the first ever "rock and roll" class at the high school in 2008, a program that started with only 5 students and has ballooned to 38 in this current year! The class consisted of guitars, keyboards, bass and drums, all of which David can teach at a professional level.

Most recently, David graduated with his second Masters in Jazz Performance from DePaul University. He studied primarily with professor Ron Perillo, unquestionably the most innovative piano player in Chicago and with Bob Palmieri, a gifted guitarist. Having now graduated, David is devoting himself full time to teaching private students and looks very much forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Although David has a laid back personality and approach to life, he takes his job very seriously. He prides himself in not being the kind of teacher who is there simply to entertain and hope the student learns something in the process. Though you will most certainly have a good time, you should only take from him if you really want to become a great musician/player. Having been a highly qualified public school teacher for 5 years, David has more experience than most private teachers you can find. He knows what it takes to achieve greatness and he knows that most students, in the end, respect that more than a half hour "jam session."

David will tailor his curriculum to each student. Every student is expected to have a notebook with staff paper and a pencil at their lesson. Students will also be assigned a book to purchase (in some cases more than one) and he/she will progress through it at a pace appropriate to his or her level.

More than anything, what you will see in David's lessons is his love for music and teaching music. It is truly a special thing to be gifted in this art, and he believes that anyone who is willing to put in the time, the effort and the dedication needed will be rewarded and enriched in the end.

David is also available for online lessons via Skype! He loves taking advantage of this modern technology in his lessons and is happy to take on new students in this format.

*** Studio Equipment ***
He has a fully weighted digital piano, electronic keyboard, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, clarinet, flute and various percussion equipment in a room completely devoted to music. Can accommodate seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own guitar/bass, but any drum lessons or piano lessons would require the student to have the necessary instrument at home.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in non-wind instruments, especially drums, percussion, bass guitar, piano and rock guitar. I consider myself extremely versatile with various styles and genres. Piano lessons are taught on a wonderful, fully weighted 88 key keyboard. I apply several teaching methods to reach as many kids as possible, with a focus on hands-on learning.

*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest
feedback rating from students.

Danny K. Chicago, IL

About Me

Danny K. is a musician who has worked professionally for 10 years in the musical styles of Jazz, Rock, Funk, Blues, Reggae, Classical, and Experimental. Born and raised in Houston, TX, he attended the prestigious High School for the Performing and Visual Arts while gigging on the side in local area jazz big bands and small combos. He received a substantial scholarship to attend the prestigious Oberlin College Conservatory of Music in 2006, where he received tutelage from jazz saxophone master Gary Bartz and classical saxophone pedagogue Paul Cohen. At this same time, he was the secondary jazz saxophone teacher at the Conservatory, teaching non major Oberlin sax students as well as children and adults in the Ohio community. Around this time, performances in local Cleveland big bands/pit orchestras was a regular thing. The end of Danny's Oberlin experience was very exciting as he took his band Organ Yank on a tour that consisted of masterclasses/performances at venues/educational institutions around the country. He now lives in Chicago and teaches saxophone and piano to students of all ages around the area, in addition to maintaining a busy performance schedule.

*** Lesson Details ***
