Ian M. Lake Villa, IL

About Ian

I’ve been teaching professionally to all ages and levels for over 10 years throughout the Chicagoland area. I have been playing for about 19 years. Music is my passion. I even own and run an all ages music venue. Teaching is my biggest love and I love seeing students learn! There isn’t a style I will not teach. All music to me is fascinating:)

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons start with the basics (assuming the student doesn’t already know them). This includes: reading music and chord diagrams (usually using a book for students under the age of 15), understanding rhythm, basic music theory, etc. Meanwhile, we apply this knowledge to songs of the student’s choice- this way they’re learning songs they like, and more about guitar and music at the same time. ...

Great teacher

My son loves learning guitar from Ian! He is so patient with children. His love for music is infectious. He makes my son look forward to learning each week. If you want to learn guitar... Pick Ian!

great teacher for popular acoustic guitar

Ian is a no nonsense well organized guy. He taught me using exercises he wrote out on paper mostly in tabulature form. He used a metronome from the first lesson and always introduced a music theory concept such as rhythm, pentatonic scales, and chord transposition. He will not move past any exercise until you can demonstrate proficiency so there is no choice but to draw your own conclusion that you need to practice more if you want to progress. He teaches out of his local all ages music venue, or will travel to your home.

A great experience.

As an adult, beginner student I have nothing but good things to say about Ian. He has a very good demeanor during class and takes the time to find out what styles you are interested in.

He has the patience and communication skills that are found in superior instructors (I have been to a couple others and have stuck with Ian). His passion for music is infectious.

He challenges me to become better with each week and is good at instilling a sense of competition. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

About Teresa

I am a graduate of Northern IL University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I have 22 years of teaching experience where I have traveled to the homes. Students enjoy my passion that I have with the instrument.

Anyone young and old will enjoy learning to play the piano with Terri!

Terri is the perfect match when it comes to being my piano teacher. Not only is Terri knowledgeable and professional, she is also very patient and encouraging. She has made me appreciate the challenge of learning the piano by combining technique and theory along with fun and laughter in my lessons. With Terri, the lesson is not over until she makes sure I understand what she has just taught me. She is the best! I am so lucky I found her! I highly recommend her!

More people should know about Take Lessons.

My Instructor, Terri, is knowledgeable, patient and flexible. I am a professional, mature student with a super busy schedule who had never played a musical instrument before. Terri has been able to provide the knowledge and encouragement that I need, along with the enjoyment of playing the piano. I could not have asked for a better fit. Terri is valuable to any age group.

Highly recommend! Has been my son(s) teacher for about six years.

Terri is extremely professional and works well with children. She enjoys teaching and laughs with the children. She makes learning the piano fun, and will allow a child to pass and play similar songs at that level so the material is not monotonous and boring for the child. It also gives the child confidence when they do not have to repeat the same piece, but can learn the material from different books and pieces rather than repeating one song over and over. Terri is not a time watcher at all, but cares more about the child getting the lesson and understanding it well. I am so very glad I found her to teach both my sons. Highly recommend!

Singing · In studio

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.
