About Kate
I participated in every musical activity I could find while growing up: choir, concert band, jazz band, marching band, and rock bands. I decided to focus on classical clarinet performance in college, but I also continued studying piano and bass. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2007 with a degree in Clarinet Performance.

While still in high school, I taught private clarinet lessons to younger students. Teaching helped me become a better player and leader. Since 2007, I have been teaching general music in Chicago Public Schools.

Private lessons allow me to tailor each lesson to the individual student. There are many ways of learning, and at least as many ways of teaching. My goal as a teacher is to pass on lessons of patience, creativity, appreciation, confidence and dedication to my students. I hope
my students will apply these lessons to their musical studies and throughout all areas of their lives.

Music has been an incredibly powerful force in my life, and it is my passion to share the benefits of music through instruction and performance.

***Lesson Details ***

I want my students to leave their lessons with skills and confidence that will help them in all areas of life. It is important to me that I give my students the ability to keep learning outside of our lessons. I believe that music is an art form that can be enjoyed by all!

Working with beginners is my specialty. I understand that each student learns differently, and finding the right method for my students is very important to me. The fundamentals learned in the first year of piano benefit any new musician, and can be applied to other instrumental studies.

Piano and clarinet lessons begin with an assessment of ability and setting of goals. I prefer to use the Faber and Faber piano series with most of my piano students. All lessons are a combination of theory, instrumental/performance technique, and ear training.

I am expecting the students would have a piano. Keyboard is ok with beginners for 3 months

*** Specialties ***
I choose different materials for different age students. It depends on their age, ability, personality and backround. I teach more classical music. Sometimes I will assign some popular music which according to the students for fun. But mainly I follow the traditional teaching way. I combine technique and music at the same time so that the students wouldn't feel bored. I encourage parents to be highly involved to the piano lesson.

About Tony
Want to have fun learning and playing guitar? I would love to help you do just that! I specialize in teaching beginners and intermediate guitar in all forms of rock plus pop, blues, and alternative.

I teach a proven method in allowing students to find a love of playing music that keeps them engaged in the process of learning over the years. Students should be shown how to bring their own personal style and creative expression to their performance. They should also be able to adapt and customize songs in a manner that keeps the songs recognizable and enjoyable, but produces a performance that is uniquely their own. This is a method that I strongly believe in.

Depending on the student's ability and willingness to learn, they can be up an playing songs within a short time, all while learning the correct techniques, chords, notes, scal
es, etc.

I have been playing guitar for over 35 years and have been in bands with numerous styles from rock to pop to metal to gospel. I have 15 years of teaching experience. I currently play in a local Rush tribute band: Animation – A Tribute to Rush. You might also find me somewhere on a Sunday morning playing for a local church.

We would highly recommend taking lessons from Tony G. We have two daughters who both have taken lessons with him. Our oldest daughter, who is 18 now, started taking lessons from him when she was 8. Our youngest daughter started taking lessons from him a year ago when she was 15 and is doing an amazing job! They both enjoy working with him and we, as parents have always been happy with their progress. He listens to the students and what they want to do and what they enjoy and creates a teaching environment that suits them as an individual.

About Eric
Hi.
I'm Eric and I own a Music Lesson Studio in Elgin, IL.

I specialize in working with beginners of any age as well as advanced students who are interested in taking their playing to the next level. Here are some of the things I like to focus on.

Child beginners: Learning to read music. Building confidence and self esteem through learning to play guitar. General music education. Teaching children songs they enjoy to listen to.

Adult Beginners: Learning to play popular rock songs. Chord strumming. Having a nice, relaxing, no pressure lesson.

Advanced students: Learning to read music at a professional level. Lead guitar. Jazz improvisation.

I'm a professional, full time musician and educator and my guitar has been paying my bills my entire adult life. I have real world, professional experience playing and teaching guitar
as well as bass guitar, drums, piano, mandolin and more on countless gigs here in Northern, IL. I teach between 30-50 private students per week. I have taught hundreds of students in the past 12 years how to reach their musical goals. I've played tons of theater. I played guitar, mandolin, and drums as a swing musician for the Chicago Production of Jersey Boys at the Bank of America Theater in 2008. In 2014 I played a lot theater gigs for local productions such as Little Shop of Horrors (bass), Hands on a Hardbody (Guitar, Steel/Slide) and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat (guitar). I grew up as a gigging rock n roll/blues guitar player, but my heart is in jazz. I am confident and fluent in, and have gigged most styles of guitar playing.

I met with Eric at his studio in Elgin, and he was extremely friendly and welcoming. He gave me a very good and informational lesson on some specific musical questions I had about progressing in my saxophone career. He gave me specific instructions on places to visit, useful websites, and names of people. This information may seem trivial, but I was at a personal stopping point on some issues, and Eric provided the tools for me to continue. I highly recommend Eric to anyone looking to learn what it means to be a professional.

About Josh
I am an avid clarinetist, energetic performer and enthusiastic teacher. My dream career is to be a soloist like Martin Frost, to play in an orchestra, or compose and perform my music.
My passion for teaching is similar to my passion for performing, and I have experience teaching privately since 2013 and in front of large groups, as a staff member for a high school marching band.
My teaching style is all about fundamentals as I try and break down the things you need to know about playing into easy to understand fundamentals that can be applied to all future playing.

Another fantastic lesson with Josh. He noted that my son tends to play his notes in a more "jazz" style which is great because I was hoping he would join jazz band in middle school! He is always positive and provides very constructive feedback to my 11 year old son to help him improve his playing. We are very pleased! (and my son is very comfortable with his teaching style... Love his tips and suggestions and his help with improving on songs he is playing for school.)

Josh is a great teacher, and I highly recommend him as an instructor for both adults and youth. I took clarinet lessons many years ago as an elementary school student. I have long had an interest in returning to the instrument, so I recently signed up for a series of lessons with Josh. Although it had been several decades since I first played the clarinet, Josh helped me get comfortable with the instrument again and provided terrific instruction on all aspects of the clarinet and clarinet performance.

I started playing guitar when I was 9 and taught myself how to play by listening to recordings and sounding them out. I have taught private lessons for 10 years and group/private lessons prior to that. I've played at Green Mill Jazz Club for 13 years, Millenium Park, Schuba's, Double Door, The MCA, Andy's, pretty much all venues in Chicago... and have toured the country. I play many music styles, so I can teach you mostly anything.

About Aaronson
I'm a 2015 graduate of Oberlin's Musical Studies program. I took several courses in electronic composition and signal processing, as well as classical music theory and ear training courses. I have been a performing jazz and rock bass guitarist for about ten years, and an earnest composer for about 8. I've been teaching freelance (but mostly just for free) for about 3 years, and I'm hoping to bring what I've learned, as a student and a teacher, to a broader audience.

I can sight-read well, and I can read tabliture. I can help you flesh out that riff you've been working on, or help with part-writing around it. I can talk your ear off about compositional techniques in the works of Brahms, Tina Turner, and Radiohead in the same sitting. But my passion is working with performers who want to learn foundational principles of theory and perfor
mance in their idiom, while pushing sonic boundaries with their instrument. I assure you, it's less sophisticated and pretentious than it sounds!

If any of that sounds interesting, definitely drop me a line!
