Marisa B. Chicago, IL

About Marisa

Hi! My name is Marisa B. I am a bass player by trade but I also play violin, viola, bass guitar, and I can teach beginning music theory. I really enjoy playing all the instruments I teach, however I am in school learning to play all 18 basic instruments in the music world! VanderCook College of Music in Chicago, Illinois is a great place to study music education and get yourself way more involved in music than you ever anticipated being. I sing in choir, I previously was in the Symphonic Band and the Wind Ensemble, I am currently part of the Jazz Ensemble (holding down the rhythm section with my steady bass lines), and I am the bass section leader of the Philharmonic Orchestra. All of that aside, I really love teaching and I would love to work with you in any way it was needed to help ...

Dave is an exceptional teacher!

I am a beginner guitar player, Dave has been patient and kind at every lesson. This has been an inspiration and a great help for me to continue learning the guitar. I wanted to find a guitar teacher and not just a guitar player; his approach to teaching is outstanding. He has a love for music and a gift of being an excellent teacher. I always leave my lesson feeling good about my progress and inspired to continue learning to play the guitar. I recommend him for any player at any level; he he teaches good practice habits and is very knowledgeable of music theory and how to teach each person individually. It is rare to find someone knowledgeable in music and apply their knowledge to teaching. I was fortunate to find him!

He's awesome. :)

He makes learning the guitar so comfortable. He makes things easier to review and doesn't mind going over things you may have forgotten. If I could, I would get everyone I know to take lessons from him. I couldn't ask for a better teacher!

Dan is very knowledgeable and has an extensive background in music. My 10 yr. old son looks forward to his weekly piano lessons and mentions how much he appreciates the teachers patience and kindness. Dan does an excellent job of teaching the material while remaining friendly and fun! He constantly provides feedback and encouragement and does a great job of instilling enthusiasm for learning music while adapting to my son's skill level and needs. I also love that he is punctual! We would definitely recommend Dan as a music teacher to adults and kids alike.

Johann S. Chicago, IL

I have been teaching upright bass for two years and my students have proved great results in both technical and listening skills. I specialize in classical music on the instrument and focus on incorporating the Simandl and Rabath methods into my students' technique. I begin with developing sound technique and then move toward achieving musical interpretation and eventually confident performing capabilities. I work well with all ages and it will be a pleasure to work with you!
