About Daniel
In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as 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 techniques that are relevant to our
current day and age.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

About William
Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

I’ve been working with Will for around two years. In this time Will has pushed me to be the best I can be. Not only is Will a great teacher but he is also a great person. Thanks to Will I have reached new heights in my singing. I couldn’t have done it without him. I would 100% recomend Will to anyone who is looking for an amazing voice teacher.

I am new to the game of golf, but have had a couple golf lessons prior to working with Keith, which gives me a credible reference point for his teaching style.

The entire experience of working with Keith was fantastic! His corrections are spot on without being overwhelming, his patience is admirable, and his excitement and love of the game was infectious! I truly wish that I could "take lessons" from him weekly. He gets best instructor ever status from me!

I have been dancing my entire life, I worked as a Party Motivator(someone who encourages guests at Bar/Bat Mitzvah's and Corporate Events to get up and DANCE) through college at the University of Connecticut. After college I competed in Bronze level Ballroom Latin Dance. I was also a member of SMCC Dance Company. My forte is turning someone who claims they have '2 Left Feet', into Bruno Mars;-) Let me know how I can help you gain more confidence, boost your cardio and toning during group fitness classes, or just get you moving! I have been Zumba(r) Fitness Certified since 2011 and I maintain CPR/AED as well as AFAA Group Fitness Certifications.

About Natalie
FITNESS TRAINING: I am insured and Cooper-certified. I was a competitive gymnast and ran track, so athletics has always been a huge part of my life! I have been training with a focus on women's fitness for about 8 years, and I have developed a program successful in leaning and toning (without bulking), strengthening core, building balance and flexibility, increasing metabolism, and making workouts fun! No need to push yourself to injury or do something that you don't enjoy!

ELEMENTARY/MIDDLE SCHOOL ACADEMICS: I am a parent myself (of a magnet school student!) and have decades of experience babysitting and nannying. I also volunteer at a preschool for homeless children (Vogel Alcove) and with special needs children (Rays of Light). I have a summa cum laude degree from SMU. I have worked with children as young as kindergarten, and have bee
n told that my patience and ability to explain things in different, fun ways has helped them excel!

About Rod
I've followed a passion for health and fitness since my childhood days. It has led me through the individual and team sports which fostered exploration of taking my pursuing a better version of myself. I've been fortunate enough to share this experience by coaching boys’ soccer for 12 years.
My pursuit continued in the years that followed with the achievement of a 3rd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Again, I've been privileged since I currently teach Tae Kwon Do to children and adults.
My experiences with Tae Kwon Do fueled a passion to explore additional arts including Tai Chi, Qigong and meditation practices. I currently teach the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi and Qigong as a Qigong practitioner and certified Tai Chi instructor. My offerings include the long, short and simplified forms in the Yang Style Tai Chi. In addition, I offer
chair Tai Chi as a certified instructor. Teaching since early 2014, I continue to update my skills and teaching offerings through my attendance in seminars and workshops.
My mission is to apply these ancient arts to everyday life that will benefit your health and well-being. Join me in the pursuit to put the mind, body and spirit in harmony to yield the best version of you.
No experience necessary, no special equipment, and beginners are always most welcome.
