*** Lesson Details ***
The goal of lessons depends on what the student wants to gain - whether that means getting into their school orchestra, getting ready for college or simply for the sake of enjoyment and musical fulfillment. I work with the student to determine the best course of study to meet their needs along the way.

I specialize in intermediate to advanced students who would like to further and refine their existing skills. This is determined on a case-by-case basis by finding out how long the student has studied and what repertoire they have learned.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand. I would expect the student to provide their own instrument and sheet music.

I'm a teacher who has worked with Kate and her students. I'm always very impressed with her students, they are set up so well! Kate does a great job balancing technique basics with repertoire and musical knowledge. I would highly recommend her for any level, she is great with beginners as well as more advanced students.

My best music teacher ever!

We are so happy to have Kate as our violin teacher. She is a professional who has great approach towards kids and manages to find the best way to teach them how to love the instrument, play it as a true artist and show them how to enjoy music. Our daughter adores her and always goes to the lessons with desire and leaves with a big smile on her face. She quickly learned the basics and now loves playing the violin and keeps practicing every day without being reminded to do so.

Florin M.

Chicago, IL

About Florin

I am an experienced guitar teacher / player with a BA in Instrumental performance and an MFA degree in Composition.
I have experience teaching all levels, in various styles (Basic theory, Improvisation, Jazz, Blues, Rock/Fusion, Classical Guitar) and I have taught students ranging in age from 6 to 55.
From August 2008 'till May 2010 I was a full-time teacher at Fun with Music in Chicago
I have studied in Chicago with Frank Dawson (Chicago Jazz Ensemble), Norman Ruiz (classical guitarist), David Bloom (Bloom School of Jazz), Peter Lerner and Bill Boris (guitar theory & improvisation).
I ha
ve shared stage with major names from the Chicago Jazz and Blues scene like George Freeman, Ari Brown Quartet, Clyde “Lightning” George.
I am also experienced in teaching music theory, orchestration & composition.

*** Lesson Details ***
For a beginner student at any age I try to shape my lessons in such a way that the student gets more familiar with the instrument in a pleasant way as much as possible. I am laid back when necessary and especially for a beginner I try to use more than one method so that when difficulty appears I may try to switch gears so that the student still finds it exciting to practice or to finish their assignments. A lot of times this becomes possible when, let's say, practicing a scale can be put aside and playing a few chords from the student's most favorite song is done instead. Then the interest and the joy of playing is still high for them.
For a more advanced student I can also be strict when, for example, improvising requires an extra amount of effort by studying alternative guitar techniques.
I use different curriculum materials, from the Carcassi method book in classical guitar to Berklee College material for an advanced student or from various 'Guitar for beginners' materials or books to simply deconstructing various songs or tunes and playing them at the student's request.

Elizabeth is an artist at heart. She's very patient and kind. I highly recommend her!

I came to Elizabeth as an adult student with a few years of experience in playing, but with a lot of doubts about whether I could advance. I'd previously taken lessons at the Music Institute of Chicago (Evanston campus), but I didn't like how they did things over there. They are extremely overpriced for what they offer. In my first lesson there, my teacher wouldn't even let me pick up the bow and she made me play Twinkle Twinkle over and over again...

Elizabeth made playing very relaxing. Her approach is just to attack the material without any hesitations. And if you make a mistake, just do it again. She let me pick out the repertoire, which made me excited to play, and offered great recommendations on material that would help my playing. Sometimes I was too ambitious and she'd be the first to point out that maybe I wasn't ready for a piece just yet. Then she'd recommend something else that would help me get there.

Elizabeth teaches from her home and it's pretty easy to get to by train, bus, or car.

We love Ms. Brown!

Ms. Brown is professional and kind, which is a wonderful way to learn a new skill like playing the violin. My daughters were taught by her years ago as young children and then we lost track of her. When we found her on TakeLessons, we signed up, willing to drive miles for her instruction. She is thorough, clear in instruction and so even tempered. What a great teacher!

Joseph M.

Skokie, IL

About Joseph

My Story:

As a guitarist in my early years I spent much time reworking my technique and gaining insight in how guitar playing really works. My early struggles gave way to a solid knowledge of the guitar and music.

This was gained through no small part through my High School music teacher, through master classes of Manuel Lopez Ramos and Abel Carlevaro and others.

These master classes helped me in a big way to develop teaching systems and principles that can help anyone to learn guitar easier and more effectively.

You
will gain from the knowledge of these world class guitarists and teachers which will help you to play better and more musical.

And from my musical background-of playing hundreds of songs and compositions of many styles and understanding of musical structure.

Teaching philosophy

I will give you simple technical training to help the hands work together and develop a musical sound. As I teach I look for your gifts (in creativity, musical playing etc) and actively look to enhance that gift.

When problems come along in your studies, I help you to solve them in a way you can apply them for yourselves. Teach and show students how music works and how to play artistically.

How to Start

Will work with you to find a convenient time/day to schedule lessons at your home or our studio

There is a money back guarantee on the 1st lesson so you can try and see how lessons can help you to reach your goals. Selecting the "get started now" button will put you in contact with our student counselors.

P.S. Take the first step in learning music by contacting us.

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching for over 13 years in all major styles. Helping beginning or returning students of all ages (kids and adults). and backgrounds to learn music.Have taught all ages from 5 to 60 years old.

Will work to develop a personalized plan specifically for you and/or your child or family member.

Studied at Roosevelt University as a classic guitar major with music education and jazz studies.

Give students a well rounded education in all the major styles-techniques, teaching them finger picking as well as pick technique, chords and improvisation.

I specialize in building a strong foundation both musically and technically for people that have not played guitar or even music before and helping them to reach the musical goals they desire.

For the pick guitar I use the Mel Bay method along with handouts for chords/exercises and finger picking patterns This gives you flexibility to explore many musical styles.

For classic guitar I use the Sagreras or Parkening methods plus the same handouts as for pick guitar.

For electric bass I use the Hall Leonard Method, plus handouts.

I teach children how to practice and to keep a practice schedule.

I operate with a patient approach, a comfortable learning process. This helps you to learn properly and builds a solid foundation for your playing.

Lesson Progression

In general after 3 months you will know all the basic chords and how to change them. How to play the blues scale, read music /tab plus some songs with basic chords.

For the electric bass you will play blues patterns, read music and tab.

After 6 months you will be in general able to play bar chords, and more complex songs (with full chords).

For the electric bass more complex songs, movable major scales.

Keep in mind as you move through these studies you will be enjoying playing music and be moving towards the goal you had in mind in taking up music including learning the music, the styles you wanted to play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand and a foot stool. I can get them or show them where to get a method book They would just need a guitar.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can teach lessons at the students home in Des Plaines, Park Ridge, Morton Grove, Skokie, Wilmette and adjoining communities.

*** Specialties ***
Be encouraged that you and/or your family member can learn to play and it's not as hard as you think.

What I have found is it takes no special talent to play the guitar, just the desire to practice and learn. Lessons with a teacher helps you to learn quicker and more problem free, unlike other approaches. A teacher can help you personally when you have problems and questions. The investment you make will help you or a family member to play music for many years...

Teach most major styles folk, rock, blues, classical, finger picking, Jazz (Bossa Nova)
Also gospel, praise and worship guitar.
