If you are interested in Music Production, especially with computers, I am looking for you. If you are looking to take your music to the next level - improvisation and composition, then I want to work with you. If you or your kids have an aptitude for music, I want to explore that with you.
I am a musician, composer, and producer of television and film scores, teaching college courses in music production, composition, and private piano studies. My students range from beginners to piano teachers.
I am serious about music because it is the most fun and rewarding thing that life has to offer (in my humble opinion...) Let's get started.
*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning students I like to teach the way my beginning piano teacher taught me. She was patient and kind, she listened carefully to the pieces I worked on every week. She was funny and smart, she always had good advice to carry me through to the next lesson, especially when she could tell I hadn't improved as much as I ought to have. I stayed with her for 10 years.
For continuing students, we will figure out where you are and where you want to go. Personally, I like to mix things up a bit to break up the monotony and gain the skills that different styles have to offer. Bach, Brubeck, Beatles, B.B., and Beyonce. And that's just the B's.
For advanced students and students of music production, the sky is the limit. Jazz and Blues improvisation, playing in groups, recording, composing and producing. Whatever your instrument. It's what I do, and it's what I teach.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Church location: gathering room tables couches, television for parents, grand piano in sanctuary (multipurpose room) Audio workstation for digital recording, computers, microphones, recording studio gear.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a keyboard or piano.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz improvisation, blues, rock and classical piano, and music production. I have 20 years of experience writing television underscores for long form (hour long+) and docudrama productions on A&E Network and most of the local channels in the Chicago area. I have also scored two films.
Guitar, Organ, Piano
"Music is the catalyst that helps to enhance the quality of life.We as musicians and educators MUST pass it on."
I am a 27 year practicing professional musician, songwriter, arranger, and music educator. Music is my passion. I currently teach guitar, piano, and organ, and serve as minister of music and staff musician for two Chicago area church congregations. I have played guitar and keyboards for local bands, and am well versed with a variety of musical styles.
*** Lesson Details ***
I specifically tailor my lessons for each student....I do not use a "cookie cutter" lesson style. To achieve the best lesson approach for the most positive student outcome, I conduct a student assessment during the first lesson (first lessons are free for a limited time) to determine student skills, goals, and objectives. After the assessment, I structure a comprehensive, contemporary lesson plan that includes fundamentals, technique, theory, and songs relative to the lesson in a fun and productive manner that engages the student and promotes his/her creativity.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic piano (A 440), Hammond X-C3 organ, 6 string acoustic/electric guitar, 6 string classical guitar
*** Travel Equipment ***
My expectation would be that all students I visit in home would have an acoustic piano properly tuned, or a digital piano or keyboard with 88 weighted keys. Guitar students should have a 6 string, acoustic or electric guitar (with an amplifier). I will supply music books and learning materials.

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, vocal and instrumental soloists, weddings, funerals, and so on. I studied piano and organ at Kansas State University while completing a degree in biology prior to entering dental school. I currently enjoy playing for the children at church and accompanying my beautiful wife who plays flute.
I started learning Spanish while living as a child in Panama. I also studied Spanish throughout grade school. I became fluent while living in Peru for two years during my college years. I often work with Spanish-speaking patients as part of my dental education.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
