About Dan

I have been playing guitar for 29 years, starting with Rock/Blues before studying both Classical and Jazz guitar in college. I received my Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1995. I am currently a guitar teacher in the NW Chicago suburbs and in Chicago currently with 40+ students, teaching all ages, all levels and all styles. I have been teaching guitar and music off and on for the past 19+ years but in 2007 I decided to devote myself to teaching full time (yes, teaching guitar is my primary job!)...one of the best decisions I have ever made!

To me, playing music is an incredibly rewarding experience. It€™s also a lot of fun! But no matter what your goals are in music, I have found, through many years of playing and teaching, that every ...

Best Teacher and Encouraging

I have had Dan as my Guitar Teacher, he is the best in teaching Guitar from the basics. I started with him as nothing since I do not have any Musical Background, He encouraged me well to understand the Music notes and Guitar Tabs. Every lessons with him was so much interesting and particularly he asks me to choose my favorite song and explore the Guitar notes. That makes the learning interesting and willing to explore the different types of Music.
Any questions I asked about the Music, he could explain by the way that I can easily understand. Every second in his class is valuable and has some good information about Music.
He is the Best and I always feel proud to say that I am his student.

Best teacher i've had

Dan is amazing. I've had him as a teacher for a few years and I have already learned to play Hotel California, Johnny B. Goode, and many other songs. Dan brings his own equipment so that you can get printed handouts whenever you want. He is quite instructive and explains things in simplest terms. If you are having some trouble with something, he breaks it down into smaller pieces. Dan is definitely the best teacher I have had.

About Steven

I have been studying and performing music for 20+ years. After majoring in music at College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn IL, I went to step up my level of study at the Percussion Institute of Technology (P.I.T.) at Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA in 2001 attaining a Performance Certificate from my time studying there.

Moving back to Chicago after L.A. in 2002 proved to be the right move as this is when I began my teaching career. With 11+ years of private music instruction experience, I have worked with Hix Brothers Music, Naperville Music, Roselle Music, Streamwood Park District, After School Enrichment Solutions, Band For Today, Guitar Fundamentals, Chicago Guitar Instruction, Schaumburg Music, Music Makers of Western Springs, and also maintain a private clientele.

Drum
Our son looks forward to lessons with Steve!

Steve is a great drum teacher! He has been working with my son for almost a year. He is very patient and has a nice sense of humor (which is necessary when training kids).

He conducts a review with my son at the start of each session and offers words of encouragement throughout. After the lesson is over, Steve always confers with me and objectively reviews the lesson's achievements, parts to work on, and goals for next week. Our family recommends him for young and adult students!

Drum
One of the best teachers around!

I have known Steve for many years as a fellow drummer and educator. We come from the same background as far as schooling and theory's on how to teach students. I have subbed for him several times and have always been impressed with the knowledge and skill level of even students that have been with him for a short time. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about starting or advancing their skills!

I have seen a few teachers over the years. One who is currently a professor of voice at a prestigious university. One who holds many degrees in voice and speech pathology. Each has many successful students. However, none have been able to fix my problem. I started teaching myself voice after I "discovered" that I had a decent one when I first went to music school. However, I taught myself incorrect techniques which resulted in actual, physical pain. Since then I have spent years trying to correct this problem. I don't know exactly what Sara said or did, to be honest, but somehow she managed to dig inside my brain, connect the right neurons, and BOOM I can sing without hurting myself. It seems a bit sensational but it's the truth. If you want a voice coach who is professional, understanding, knowledgeable, and above all kind, then take some lessons with Sara.

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.

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 ...

Voytek is unbelievably positive and flexible. I've been working with him for about 6 months, and he started me off with a great set of lessons and materials that was right for me. He always focuses on what I do well, so I want keep playing, even when things get hard. When he points out something to work on, he somehow comes across positive - more like a helpful suggestion than a critique. Voytek has been knowledgable and flexible when I want to focus on music theory or just play songs that I like. I continue to work with him and would hire him for other types of lessons.

As an adult novice I was concerned about taking my first lessons without any musical background. However, Voytek has made it very easy and fun. I'm very happy with my choice of instructor and plan to continue for some time.
