Jeff has been great with my 7 year old son learning Djembe and Bongos. Jeff gives clear concise instructions and practices the skills with him to work on during the week. My son is easily distracted and Jeff is very flexible and listens to what he has to say, using is as a way to teach and redirects. My son can't wait to go to class every week!

Hi I’m Chloe and I began my musical career singing with the Barrington Children’s Choir and eventually the Barrington Chamber Choir which gave me the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall, Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, Windy City Live and much more!

I graduated with a degree in music from Harper and during my time there I sang with the community and select choral ensembles. I also studied piano during my time there and was featured as a soloist for the Harper Flute ensemble, the Harper Guitar ensemble and the Harper Jazz Lab ensemble.

My studio is designed to be a safe and encouraging space for students to challenge themselves and explore individuality with their voices!

I am currently offering violin lessons for anyone in any level! I want to share the joy of playing violin with students, whether it's your first go at it or if you're interested in honing skill sets or if you're working towards an audition or recital.

For beginners: We will start with the proper positions of how to hold the violin and bow. From here, we will expand into solidifying note reading, and note association with the violin. Depending on progress, I will then introduce short pieces.

For those who do not know how to read any music, I offer theory as well.

For intermediate: We will review proper violin and bow hold, go over scales, arpeggios and begin different violin positions and vibrato! Very exciting. I will discuss how best to practise, focus is essential for efficiency. We will cover a variety of short works.

For advanced players: Depending on your goals, this is flexible. Overall, an overview of correct technique, working on the expression of musical ideas, ...

About Christine

I remember the first time I saw a violin and knew I wanted to take lessons. My first teacher lived just down the road from me, I loved my lessons, and couldn't wait to learn piece after piece. I ended up learning with him from 5 to 18 years of age after which I went to America to earn a Bachelor of

I have known Christine since 2015. She is a very detail-oriented, highly advanced violinist and her demeanor is professional and caring. She would make a fantastic teacher for all ages and levels.
John
Christine is an excellent violinist and a thoughtful and caring person. This desirable combination makes her a demanding yet supportive teacher sure to improve any level of student.
Laura S.
Ms. Wang is my colleague at the San Antonio Symphony. Not only is she a fantastic violinist, she is also a lovely person! Ms. Wang is the type of violinist who truly understands what she is doing and how, and this translates to her excellent abilities as a teacher. Her attention to detail is meticulous; she always has a very clear idea of what she is looking for in a particular passage, and a plan of action for making that happen, whether it's with a good fingering, bowing, or mental preparation. I have no doubt that she can help you to excel no matter what your current level is.

I have students that are in every walk of their guitar playing journeys. The material and methods we use to learn guitar will vary considerably based on your level of ability/knowledge and age.

About Jason

Music comes from the soul and is an incredibly vulnerable form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put themselves and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will

"Chau is great at what she does. She teaches my 7 year old daughter Lindsey how to sing and play piano. When we first started taking her to Chau she was very shy. She has really opened up since working with Chau and now she sings loud and proud all the time. Chau is very patient with her when she is teaching her a new technique. If Lindsey is having a hard time comprehending something, Chau will take different approaches to help her understand. She never gives up on her. Lindsey absolutely loves her lessons with Chau. I'm welcome to stay and watch but I've found that Lindsey focuses better when I'm not there. I feel very comfortable leaving Lindsey with Chau. If you're looking for a great teacher that you can trust with your kids, Chau is definitely the one!"

"I am really impressed with Chuck's ability to get right to the things I want to learn while still explaining the fundamentals. I'm a self-taught guitar player (30 years) but I came to Chuck with no reading skills and no piano experience at all. He has been able to take what I know and show me how to apply it to learning theory, but within 3 lessons he also has me really excited about playing actual music that I'm into. Great learning studio and professional yet laid-back demeanor. Definitely plan on sticking with Chuck."
