About Daniel
In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means.
Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our
current day and age.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

Cole Shelton has brought a fresh, enthusiastic approach to the clinics. I have participated both in his Saturday morning clinic and two of the classes he offered on a particular stroke. I appreciated the fact that he came prepared to each type of “lesson,” often bringing written material on the stroke/strategy to be covered that day and always having a plan for the day. He initiated drills that I had never participated in before and which really helped me retain the concept he was explaining. Because he explains well and has a very positive approach in dealing with people, I signed my daughter, Nikki, up for a private lesson with Cole over the last Christmas break; unfortunately, it rained the entire time she was home. However, when she comes home in July, I plan on signing her up again. I am sure she will come away from that lesson(s) with a great attitude about tennis as well as improved strokes. Often while I am waiting for a court or am playing on the court next to a junior clinic he is giving, I watch how Cole interacts with the young players. He is patient and provides activities that keep them engaged. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend him to anyone—child, teenager, or adult—looking to learn tennis or enhance their game.

Also, I would like to mention that Cole went out of his way to ensure that my son, Michael , and I could play mixed doubles 8.0 together. After the numerous calls/e-mails to Norcal USTA that we made with no results in getting Michael’s rating changed, Cole helped us out and made the call that led to the rating being changed and our being able to play matches together. Before he became involved, we lost almost 2 months .

Cole is an invaluable asset.

I have been a member of the club for over ten years and have had the opportunity to take several lessons and clinics with your various resident professional tennis instructors. My tennis experience goes back from high school to my present senior tennis status. Over the years I have worked on improving my game through one on one professional lessons where my budget would allow.

When I’ve gone to the pros for help, my goal is the get the instructor to give me some useable feedback to how I can improve my game. One usually gets a least one thing from the session to takeaway and use. I’ve been collecting and using them over the years.

I recently engaged Cole Shelton for help with my serve, which had lost its consistency over the last USTA season. Cole was not recommended by anyone but I decided to take a chance that he could help me out. I was extremely satisfied with the session. There was email correspondence before hand to establish goals and to get acquainted. The session started on time and his demeanor friendly and non-condescending. What most impressed me about Cole’s teaching style was the use of the latest technology to impart and emphasize the points of the lesson. An Apple ipad was utilized to capture my form and make a comparison to correct technique. The ability to actually see what I was doing right and wrong during the lesson was invaluable. The video capture of my serve and a series of form points were emailed to me for reference. This is a tennis instructor that has given me a welcome perspective on how to improve my game.

I would have no reservations in recommending Cole to anyone who needs help with their tennis game. His approach to instruction was refreshing and innovative.

Sincerely,

Paul T

This letter is to acknowledge, recognize and commend the services provided by Cole while teaching me over the last few months. My goal was to get back into tennis, after not having played for over 20 years, and Cole has been of tremendous help.

He clearly understood my intent, helped me to gradually catch up, physically and technically, adjusted the teaching depending upon my needs, and was also very flexible in terms of availability (which is of high value given my work schedule).

Getting back into a sport one has not practiced for a long time is not easy and Cole was extremely helpful and supportive to bring me back into the game.

Best regards,

Rodrigo L

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree and didn't want to be a school teacher. I worked professional jobs in retail and tech sales and have come back to teaching.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I always make sure to work with the student first. I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons, though I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Kum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band, partially to rehab a brain injury.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

Practice is a must in order to develop the n
ecessary skills that demonstrate learning.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

I whole-heartedly recommend Joshua for anyone of any age and any skill level who wants to enrich their life learning guitar. I appreciate the fact that he makes the time and has the patience to adapt to my needs. Joshua is flexible in scheduling - especially for those unforeseen incidents - which is appreciated.

Being an adult beginner with music lessons, Joshua eases my frustration on immediately wanting to play perfect notes and chords. I look forward to continuing lessons.

Hey, Sasha speaking! I would be thrilled to share my passion for dance with you. I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole). I have been teaching different subjects for 6 years with a focus in instructing ballroom for the last 4 years. I believe dance is a healing and liberating art and would love to help you find your flow. Not only is dance fun, but it will come in handy at parties and events, and is a great way to socialize. I am experienced with both kids ages 4 and up as well as adults, so please feel free to contact me, and we can begin an awesome journey.

I am now offering online group classes in various subjects as well. Subjects include Zumba, Bellydance, and Hip hop with more coming soon. Classes run weekday mornings and some weekends.
