Daniel A. Schaumburg, IL

Whether you have no knowledge of recording techniques or have some basic experience with digital studios/home recording, with further knowledge of equipment, software, musical form and structure, you can quickly take your skill to a higher level.

About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I am also 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 ...

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Daniel is a highly skilled piano teacher.

I have been very impressed with Daniel's instruction abilities - he is patient, tuned-in to whether or not I 'get it', and has opened the door to a whole new way to re-learn piano for personal enjoyment.
Loretta M. Chicago, IL

Recording lessons focus on work in ProTools, Reason, and supporting music production software. The process of setting up equipment and running the audio for shows is taught and reviewed. In addition, listening and audio analysis are a main focus as well as the technology involved in the recording industry.

About Loretta

I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style.

My 11-year-old absolutely loves Miss Loretta. She's enthusiastic, patient, encouraging and makes learning music fun. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson and learning something new. If my daughter brings a piece she wants to learn, Loretta finds a way to fit it in. It's clear that Loretta loves teaching and is a natural at it. We feel lucky to have found her.

In my last lesson, Loretta helped me work through a major misconception about myself. I did not believe that my voice sounded good in falsetto - so I didn't practice it, lowered my expectations, and generally created a self-defeating barrier..

The transformation in learning to love what's coming out of my pipes is more than just voice-deep. Now I believe there are new lands I can conquer! Thank you for helping me to love my upper register Loretta!

After only a couple of lessons I can tell that Loretta is a well rounded teacher. As a flute instructor she is better than what I could have imaged.
Ayme F. Chicago, IL

I haven't taught this specifically, but I do have a lot of experience with home recording and have interned at a recording studio. I can give you the basics of what you need to get started recording yourself.

About Ayme

Music can be as simple or as intricate as you want to make it. I will to teach you how to make the most of whatever knowledge and skill you have and to have fun while you do it. My tastes are all across the board, rock and roll, country, metal, opera, I love it all. So, let me know what you are into and we can go from there. I started playing guitar about 20 years ago and have fronted several bands that have played all over Chicago and beyond. Although I have studied ethnomusicology, theory, and composition in college, I owe my greatest debt to the Chicago musicians who inspired and later taught me. I began my private studies in flamenco guitar with Tomas de Utrera, Kelan Phil Cohran voice and theory, Hamid Drake instructed me on hand drumming, and from Rockin' Johnny Burgin I learned

Ayme has been great, my daughter Ruby has been taking guitar lessons with her for a short time and Ruby absolutely loves it! Ayme is kind, patient and explains things in a way Ruby connects with. My daughter doesn't have any experience with playing an instrument and Ayme is making this experience an enjoyable one for her. Ruby is catching on quite nicely and enjoys going to her lessons. I would strongly recommend Ayme to anyone interested in learning how to play guitar.

Great Teacher

Great teacher!
I started with Ayme with no musical skills whatsoever. I wanted to learn the guitar to challenge myself. 10 lessons down the line I am comfortably strumming away and very happy my progress.
Great teacher to learn from; she knows her stuff!

Great teacher!

Ayme was a great teacher. I started lessons with her when I was 9 now I am 16
and kind of a shredder.
She is really patient, encouraging and has a great sense of humor. I learned a lot
about music theory and soloing without even noticing. When I moved
on to other teachers, I realized what a great foundation she gave me, I was way ahead of the other students and sometimes a little ahead of the teacher. Lol.
She knows a lot about different kinds of music, which was really cool.
I learned blues, some rockabilly, and even a Metallica song while I was
studying with her. She makes learning really fun!

Will P. Chicago, IL

About Will

I play, write, record and perform a variety of American popular music forms including rock, folk, blues, funk, bluegrass, country, fingerstyle guitar, and jazz. I began my musical training learning drums as a 12 year old and a year later began private lessons on guitar as well. In the following years, while playing in rock bands and focusing primarily on guitar and continuing practice on drums, I became interested in learning other instruments: I took harmonica lessons and taught myself how to play bass guitar and keyboards. As a teenager I also began writing my own songs and teaching myself how to record music. I also play Spanish flamenco guitar and studied with master flamenco players while living in Madrid, Spain. Today, I play guitar, harmonica, sing and write songs for my

Incredible Teacher

I am completely new to playing an instrument and Will taught me an incredible amount... from playing the instrument, to understanding music theory, to listening and understanding some of the great musicians. He takes a holistic approach to his teaching and the 45 minute sessions are done before you know it. He makes it fun and comfortable, which is important when you are just learning. I recommend him if you are at any level.

Voytek is unbelievably positive and flexible. I've been working with him for about 6 months, and he started me off with a great set of lessons and materials that was right for me. He always focuses on what I do well, so I want keep playing, even when things get hard. When he points out something to work on, he somehow comes across positive - more like a helpful suggestion than a critique. Voytek has been knowledgable and flexible when I want to focus on music theory or just play songs that I like. I continue to work with him and would hire him for other types of lessons.
