About Kirk

About two decades ago, I bought my first guitar from a pawn shop in Las Vegas and have been playing and loving music ever since. During and after college, I spent most of my time in the music scene of Las Vegas. I also spent much of that time (about 12 years) studying and gathering information about playing and music composition. Benefits from taking these lessons... I have decades of music theory education, self teaching and playing experience. The unique lesson course I have developed can easily benefit any student. From the very first lesson, I teach the universal language of music theory (the structure of all music) and show how to apply the theory. A student can then apply the same knowledge to any instrument, including singing. The student can also read music, write

Great Drum Teacher

My daughter had been taking private drum lesson for years before she started with Derrick. At the first lesson, Derrick told her how important it was to feel the music, other than just working on technique. That was exactly what she needed to work on. Derrick has a broad experience with playing different type of music. He likes to show her how to play, which helps her understand right away. He is very nice and patient. He is flexible and reliable in terms of lesson schedules. He uses lots of references, songs and exercises in his teaching. Now, my daughter enjoys her lessons and practices a lot more.

Derrick is everything a Teacher should be.

I have known Derrick for several years and can attest to his playing and teaching prowess. He is a well schooled percussionist, drum set player and teacher. Even though I have played professionally for over 40 years, I still come to Derrick to get a different perspective and guidance in my playing. Derrick is the perfect blend of technician and musician all rolled into one! While he can improve a beginning to advanced player's technique, he also stresses the need to play musically. This is an important aspect to anyone wanting to 'up their game'. The fact that he is a truly nice person only adds to his other attributes. You can't find a better teacher in the Chicagoland area. Period!

Mr. Kelvin is a passionate musician, best that I've known. His lessons are not boring and always go by in a flash. He is good at identifying problems that needs correction and he will point them out consistently until rectified. Highly recommended if you are looking for a teacher to give you pointers to bring your music up a notch!

Mr. Kelvin demystifies Lightroom and the layering process. He has taught me how to edit with ease. He makes sure you understand what he has done before moving on and is generous with his time when you have questions. Whether you are a beginner or a pro, Kelvin moves at YOUR pace and does not move on until you fully understand the task at hand. I will continue classes with Mr. Kelvin for the foreseeable future. He is a pleasure to work with. He is a very intelligent, kind and understanding mentor. I would recommend him to anyone. :)

Kelvin is an accomplished and effective teacher who makes online lessons both enjoyable and stimulating. He quickly spots bad tendencies so that they can be corrected early in the process and thus prevent future problems. Kelvin is personable, professional and knows what he's talking about. I look forward to each lesson to see what the next challenge will be and to get to spend time with Kelvin.

About Sarah

Classically trained pianist and singer. When it comes to piano, I have over 20 years of training under my belt. Majority of my experience deals with classical and accompaniment but have also studied jazz and contemporary. In the way of singing, I am a classically trained singer who majored in Opera Performance in college. I have plenty of performance experience from being on the stage in operas and musical to performing with choirs and solo recitals. In voice lessons a student can choose to specialize in opera or if they were to take standard voice lessons, they could expect a wide variety of music focusing on multiple languages and genres including musical theater. With every musician, Music Theory is crucial. All students will learn the basics of reading music and those who ...
