I cater my music theory lessons to the wants and needs of each student. From understanding how to read notated music, to learning how to apply scales over advanced jazz progressions, I work with my students to foster a love of music.

About Jeremy
I am an accomplished performing musician that has experience playing many different instruments in multiple styles. I believe first and foremost that learning music should be fun and exciting with an emphasis on self exploration and communication. It's these qualities in my own musicianship that have helped me grow a true love of music and have pushed my career forward as a performer.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons I use a shifting curriculum that is made to work with the needs of each individual student. I firmly believe in the importance of learning to read music and learning some bas
ic music theory, in my experience this helps the student grow from being able to reproduce the music of others to eventually developing a unique style and sound. After three to six months my beginning level students typically feel comfortable enough to play with other musicians confidently.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in the living room seating and a guitar are available. 1 cat and 1 small dog kept separate during lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide all of the necessary educational tools such as listening samples, and printed off hand outs. The student needs to have their own instrument, staff paper and a pencil.

My first lesson with Jeremy was fantastic. He tuned right in (no pun intended) to what I wanted to learn about right after we spoke the first time. He obviously knows his stuff and I look forward to spending more time taking lessons from him.

I have a Bachelors in Music, which included 4 years of music theory. I also offer group music theory workshops.

About Natalie
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in M
usic, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off 40 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Designated music space in the living room with a Spinet piano, guitars, bluetooth powered speakers, karaoke equipment, microphones and comfortable seating.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lessons, exercises and most music

Natalie was excellent. I learned quite a bit in the limited time we had. Natalie was able to assess my needs and point me in the right direction to meet those goals. She is very encouraging and patient. I'm looking forward to our next lesson and those that follow!

While music theory is very challenging to learn, it is one of the most valuable tools to have in playing music. the theory i teach from guitar DIRECTLY transfers over to any instrument. And while some teachers just expect music theory to be taught and learned easily, i take a different approach. Starting with the basics of music theory, the musical alphabet, moving to simple staff and tabs, the things i teach all immediately follow into each other one after another. Simple sayings and funny acronyms I've found help students with things like the name of guitar strings and how to follow the sharps and flats of the musical alphabet. I take a hands on approach to theory instructed in a way that is easy to follow and fun to learn!

About Justin
Hi, my name is Justin. I have been playing guitar for almost eleven years now, and I'm eager to continue passing my knowledge and skills on. I'm looking for dedicated students of all skill levels that want help learning their instrument. For many years I've taught music, and I've been very proud watching my students achieve their goals. I teach all ages, and work with everyone regardless of skill level. I am an extremely patient person, i am very dedicated to music, and i take a lot of pride in what I'm doing. I also have a very wide variety of genres i study, and i can help you on your way to
being your best.

Justin's making steady progress over the past 5 weeks with our now 8-year-old son, who seems to be responding well to Justin's collaborative, engaging style. He speaks to him like a partner, which I think boosts my son's confidence and motivation.

Justin is an excellent teacher to 13 year old, Christopher! He is patient with him and keeps the lessons moving and enjoyable. He challenges Christopher with new songs and skills with increasing levels of difficulty and keeps him moving forward. I would recommend Justin to any parent looking to get their child interested in the guitar and anyone looking to progress from the basics to the intermediary and advanced levels! His teaching skills are superb.

As an added bonus: Justin is a joy to work with and has been flexible with our crazy schedule when we need to move lessons around!

Justin has been teaching my 14 yr old son guitar for the last month. He has such an easiness to his personality that he has quickly developed a great connection with my son. His love for music is genuine and I can tell it is spreading to my son. He is encouraging and friendly but still maintains reasonable expectations for commitment and practice. I couldn't be happier with Justin. I would totally recommend him.

Music theory is taught in all lessons

About Cara
Making music and Teaching music has always been a huge part of my life! Music has brought such joy to my personal life and the lives of my students and their friends and family. I teach music because it is such a wonderful experience for everyone involved from the practice room to the performance. I hold a Degree in Music Education from Kent State Univ. I have conducted both chorus and orchestra, established small singing groups and founded the Strings of Gold. I promised my own children that music would bring adventures, and they are all performing throughout the world today. Many of my priv
ate students experience new friendships at music camps, orchestras, bands, churches, and find a wonderful purpose in school through their participation in music programs. Many of my adult students have enjoyed the accomplishment of playing an instrument and sharing their music with friends and family. I am excited that you are interested in taking music lessons! I look forward to sharing your musical adventure .

Cara is an absolutely amazing instructor! As an 'older' beginning student, I was treated with kindness and sincerity. Her patience with my ineptitude made me feel like a pro, rather than a beginner. She was able to listen to what I wished to accomplish and in a few short months, she delivered just that and more. Thank you, Cara!
