Eric M.

Villa Park, IL

I play the Flugabone as a main instrument, so I can teach flexibility on the trombone mouthpiece well. I picked up trombone technique along the way.

About Eric

I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined!

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a laid back atmosphere that is v
ery productive. I use a custom curriculum that is catered to the needs and desires of the individual. Whether you would like to be a concert pianist, a jazzy horn player, or someone who wants to rock out to your favorite tunes, I have resources and experience to help you reach your goal. After three months you can expect to competently play a couple great songs and have greater fluidity and technique on your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a recording studio which includes music stands, keyboards, piano, amps, acoustic guitar, and seating available. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need the instrument of their study and their purchased study materials. If the student is taking piano, they will need an 88 key weighted keyboard or a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, but can teach classical, pop, rock, funk, blues, salsa, bossa nova etc.

Eric was a perfect match for my 13 year old son. My son liked the fact that Eric could show him cords to practice immediately.

Nicholas K.

Merrillville, IN

My mission, is to create a private and educational environment to students of all ages. One that enriches their senses to music, through reading, writing, ear training, performance and technique.

About Nicholas

Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends. He enjoys playing lots of Motown, funk, and jazz, but is proficient in Classical, Rock, and Blues as well. When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children.
Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of music and theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
I set an individual curriculum based on students needs, wants and aspirations. We will focus on proper technique, theory, musicianship and sightreading to become a better all around musician. After a few months of lessons, you will have the proper fundamentals to grow as a musician and discover the art of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All necessities on site.

*** Specialties ***
I am well versed in many styles, I have played professionally and teach, ALL forms of Rock, Jazz, Blues, World (ethnic musics), Pop, Acoustic, Folk, and most other styles.

I hadn't played the trumpet in 30 years. My first lesson with Nicholas was like starting from scratch. He is very knowledgeable, polite, professional, and definitely patient. I feel that that homework Nicholas assigned was spot on. I'm playing better already after only two days. I would certainly recommend him to a friend.

Nicholas really tailored the lessons to what I needed. They weren't cookie-cutter lessons, and I appreciated that. He answered all the questions I had, and helped me understand some concepts that I never would have gotten just learning online. I definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Nicholas was very patient, took the time to write down information that was helpful (very helpful). Nicholas understood where I was in reference to me knowing nothing about the guitar and he is very knowledgeable with the music trade. He was very clear and kept things simple. I truly enjoy his instructions, can't wait for the next lesson.

Wilson W.

Skokie, IL

I am currently accepting students of all levels, from beginner to advanced. My first goal is to help my students develop an appreciation for all kinds of music and to allow them to enjoy performing. At each lesson, I work with each student to develop sound, rhythm, intonation, expressiveness, breathing, mouthpiece buzzing, and slide technique. To keep lessons fun, students are also encouraged to bring in a piece of music of their choice to be performed at the end of every lesson.

Excellent teacher, one of the things that I think is very good that Dr Wong knows how to use the Human constructivism and teaching techniques as it has different ways of teaching according to learning facilities that you have.

Dan M.

Glen Ellyn, IL

Every level welcome. I am a professional in my field on trombone. I have found the most success with using "Accent on Achievement" for beginners. As students progress, more materials will be needed. "Arban's: Complete Method" and "Melodious Etudes for Trombone: by Rochut" are standard for advancing students in my curriculum.

Born in the Chicago suburbs, Mr. M. graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Music in euphonium performance, and traveled to Colorado where he earned a Master of Music in trombone performance at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Dan has taught for about 10 years and speaks with efficient feedback. His experiences playing in ensembles has made him an extremely strong musician. I would recommend him for any advanced brass lesson tutoring. He can relate to people of any age so younger students would benefit from his energetic nature as well.

Travis C.

Chicago, IL

I teach beginning/intermediate students the basics of playing and technique. Simple songs, school music, and theory. I can teach someone who is just taking the instrument out of the case for the first time to high school level player.

About Travis

I received my Bachelor's in Music Education in 2012 and have been teaching for 4 years. I attended VanderCook College of Music, unlike other music education programs, VanderCook requires every student to learn how to perform 22 instruments at a freshman in high school level.

Currently, I am a full-time K-8 music teacher. I serve over 700 a week teaching general music, band, choir, and orchestra. I prepare my students to audition for high school auditions and I have also given many lessons to prepare students for college auditions.

I also perform with various community groups around the
Chicago-Land area. My primary instrument is trumpet, on which I perform in a Symphonic Band, Jazz Orchestra, Marching Band, and a Brass Quintet.

My experience has been amazing with Mr. Cuckler! At times that I wanted to give up he kept me going. I'm inspired to have a career in music. I hope that many other students will get to experience something so life changing. He is determined and energetic and that helps his students progress.

Travis Cuckler is my daughters music teacher as well as band director. His excitement for music is contagious. He holds a high standard and it shows in how his band performs. My daughter has been playing for only 2 years and is able to play high school level music. He pushes his students and they respect him highly. He is very professional, but knows how to make the kids laugh. The pride my child has for what she does is beyond anything I've ever expected.
