I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!

About Michael

Hello, my name is Michael! I have been playing guitar since I was 10-years old. Aside from being a teacher, performer, and songwriter, I would define myself as a "guitar nerd" because I love every aspect of playing. I still practice every day and have an insatiable hunger for new opportunities to p

I love working with students of all ages and inspiring them to experience the joy of singing. It’s important to me that the student feels safe as well as challenged to do their best. Breath is the primary focus and from there pitch and rhythm are developed. I also work hands on with my students on performance technique, managing nerves and connecting to lyrics. I have generated a program of vocal warmups which are included as an online resource for my students to access.

Implementing a practice regime and reward system is a big part of why my students progress so quickly. What sets me apart from other music teachers is my varied experience both as a performer and an educator and my passion for teaching! Let's get you singing with confidence and with a connection to your body and breath.

Specializing in MUSICAL and TECHNICAL aspects of singing only. I DO NOT TEACH VOCAL PRODUCTION OR NORMAL SINGING but a lot of singing teachers send me their students for help with pitch control, if they sing flat and also how to sing harmony and self-accompanying techniques, sight singing and performance anxiety.

About Howard

I enjoy working with complete beginners as well as seasoned professionals. I teach classical and popular styles. I specialize in teaching learning how to learn, sight-reading, technique, improvisation, chord-reading, songwriting. One of my specialties is to help you break through your most stubborn

Excellent lesson. Thank you!
Oz B.
Howard is very caring and detailed oriented. He really knows how to inspire and encourage children to learn piano. He makes it challenging and fun!
Edward
Howard's approach is patient while at the same time he actually leads my son forward - not just listening to what he practiced that week. Howard does not make the weekly lesson a "test" but rather a session to work together and my son enjoys the lessons instead of worrying if he prepared enough.

We moved from Los Angeles so we chose to transition from lessons in Howard's house to weekly lessons online - it continues to work beautifully.

Howard can accommodate any style of student - I know because I took lessons from Howard myself until my work built up too much to continue.

I recommend Howard without any reservation.

"Omar is the man. I drive 30-60 minutes to get to lessons (depending on traffic) and he is 100% worth it. It's apparent that Omar is educated on, passionate about and thrives through music. He is attentive to my goals and goes above and beyond to help support my learning. He's an excellent instructor and inspiring, charismatic human being. I achieved a great deal learning ukulele from Omar and I'll be returning to him this year to be instructed on bass guitar."

"I have heard Camille sing professionally before but was not aware that she was a qualified vocal instructor. However, I did some research into her educational background and saw that music education was her strong suit. She has proven to be very gifted in the arena of vocal instruction and I have found her to be very patient, intuitive, and pleasant to work with. I experience no nervousness when singing with her and have found her to be so encouraging and really quite skilled in bringing out the highest potential in me. Great teacher."
