My take on teaching music lessons are from a K-12 theory to help the student stay engaged. This is why I have half of my work with students be on popular pieces (Radio songs, musicals, movie soundtracks) with the other half of our work being on standard pieces that every student needs to be a successful musician. Both rep. types give me the opportunity to work on technique and style differences that no other format of the curriculum can have.

In addition, I have had lesson teaching technique classes with Floyd Cooley who is a world-renowned brass pedagogue.

About Corey

I am a student at DePaul University teaching lessons at a price significantly below the Chicago average. My lessons are good for students because it provides an opportunity to explore styles of music that the student is interested while also bringing those styles into the standard of Chicago horn p

Corey was super helpful in allowing my daughter to learn how to play French horn. She progressed at an exceptional rate and enjoys playing the horn due to the way he teaches with both "fun" books and classical pieces. She now receives high remarks on solo and ensemble ratings and by her band director.

My first instruction from David O. couldn't have gone better. He quickly summed up my abilities (or lack thereof) and put me on a course for improvement. Dave's style of teaching was fun and unintimidating. In addition, Dave is extremely patient and sincere. I'm looking forward to the next lessons.

I use a variety of materials to best fit what the student needs and would like to get out of taking lessons. I enjoy teaching and playing music and I try to make sure my students have fun as well!

My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

Chris was very flexible with my sons schedule. As an active kid involved in school and church activities, the online lessons with Chris were perfect. Through the year, my son advanced in his playing ability. We were excited to hear his piece at the state competition, but sadly the virus disrupted that. However, he learned much from Chris over the past several months. We appreciated the time and effort!

My son is a high school senior taking lessons from Dr. Heldt. The lesson went very well. My son is very happy to have such a kind and experienced teacher. So glad we found him!

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

"My son has been taking lessons from Mr. Gallo for this entire school year. He started out not even knowing how to hold the horn or buzz on the mouthpiece. Mr. Gallo has been instrumental in teaching him this year. Yes, my son was in band, but he really needed the extra instruction to be successful with such a hard instrument. What I appreciate about Mr. Gallo's teaching style is he is very encouraging and he is very clear about establishing a good foundation for playing the horn. He knows the proper techniques to strengthen the embouchure and the musical exercises needed to succeed. He has been a very reliable teacher and he was always willing to help my son with anything needed, such as helping him prepare for his solo competition. Overall, I am very impressed with how much my son has learned this year with Mr. Gallo's instruction and he went on to get the highest possible score in his solo competition and more importantly he really enjoys playing the french horn."

"My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons."

"Chris is a fantastic musician and teacher. My son began taking lessons from him as a beginner French horn player. Chris brought his skill level up quickly and challenged him to play in the county solo and ensemble competition. The results were a supperior performance, with aclades from the judge to my son for learning all the notes so quickly (5 months). Thanks Chris you have made a life long impression on my son."

"Olivier has without a doubt helped my daughter improve in ways that I (as a former French Horn player) could not. He is patient and pleasant as well as intelligent. Most importantly he has given my daughter the necessary tools she's needed. He doesn't just say "play higher" or "do it again". Instead he tells her exactly HOW she can get better and exactly WHAT techniques she needs to do to improve. I have seen a noticeable difference in 8 lessons and look forward her future success with Olivier."

"As a musician, Zac is above and beyond talented. Because of his proficiency and excellence, he offers great insight and helpful hints on how to play properly and with support, two extremely important parts of being a musician. Lastly, it is quite obvious what music means to him. His passion is inspiring, and makes me want to continue to pursue and practice my instrument. His lessons helped me develop from a second part to a first part, enabling me to play higher and more challenging parts for my band. Knowing that I was able to leave better than I started makes myself feel lucky and appreciative that I was able to take lessons with a person like Zac. Overall, one of the best music instructors I have had the pleasure of working with."
