*** Lesson Details ***
I encourage my students to pursue all types of music. I like to use “method books” to help with reading and music theory no matter which instrument they choose. I always use supplemental materials that follow the student’s interests and level. I often use technology in lessons to motivate and help students grow. For example, I use many apps for theory, note reading, and rhythm training.

A cancellation 24hrs in advance is always appreciated.

Dora’s lessons are the highlight of the week, and my daughter can’t wait to see her. Dora teaches from her house, which provides a warm and comfortable environment for learning piano. With her warm personality, strong knowledge of music, and contemporary song picks, Dora quickly engaged my daughter and keeps her playing for the full half hour lesson. The workbooks and assignments clearly define specific skills and serve as benchmarks from which we can assess our daughter’s progress. So far, our daughter has shown much improvement and we can’t thank Dora enough.

About Steven
I have been studying and performing music for 20+ years. After majoring in music at College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn IL, I went to step up my level of study at the Percussion Institute of Technology (P.I.T.) at Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA in 2001 attaining a Performance Certificate from my time studying there.

Moving back to Chicago after L.A. in 2002 proved to be the right move as this is when I began my teaching career. With 13+ years of private and group music instruction experience, I have worked with Hix Brothers Music, Naperville Music, Roselle Music, Streamwood Park District, Roselle Park District, Schaumburg Park District, After School Enrichment Solution's Guitar Stars, Band For Today, Guitar Fundamentals, Chicago Guitar Instruction, Schaumburg Music Academy, Music Makers of Western Springs, Clarendon Hills Music Ac
ademy, and also maintain a private clientele. Well into a thousand lessons taught, students have stayed with me for up to 7 years. You, the student, will gain all the experience I have gained from my 20 years of study, performance, and instruction.

Performing with various bands in the 2000's, I pinpointed my style and mastered my technique that gave me many performance opportunities regionally and nationally, noting most current act U2 tribute Vertigo USA.

I am co-founder of the music licensing production company Blue Shade Music, co-writing with astute musicians in the Chicago area for music libraries in Florida and California currently.

With national and international touring experience, I was featured in an exclusive interview for Online Drummer in August of 2011 sharing my knowledge and experience of music and drums.

Thank you for reading, and I hope to have a fun and educational time with you!

My 10 year old son has been taking lessons with Steve for almost 2 years. Prior to Steve, Nathan was enrolled in group lessons at the park district. After a unpleasant experience with the group lessons , we decided to try private lessons. Steve has done an amazing job working with Nathan. Like most kids, some days it is hard to keep his attention, but Steve does an amazing job. He has kept Nathan focused while still allowing him to have fun playing the guitar. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Steve as a musical instructor.

Steven was beyond helpful. He is always prepared and open to as many questions as you can think of. And if you don't fully understand the answer, he'll take the time to answer in different ways, so that you're on the same page. He was also very helpful in setting up the lesson times and locations.

It was my first time trying the drums and I didn't have a drum set yet. Steven took the time to sit down with me and discuss which drum sets were good for the price.

Overall, this was a great experience!

Skokie, IL

View Full Profile

I've been teaching music since I was 25, and my students have gone on to become professional musicians, lifelong friends, and most importantly, happy from the experience.

I do not use method books but rather take the students' requests and pieces they love and turn them into sheet music by hand.

I do not tell the students what they do wrong, only what they do right. Everyone makes mistakes, so when that happens, I tell the student "Good!" and move on to the next musical success.

About Jon
Jon N. was born and raised in Mexico City and is proudly an American citizen. He has been performing since the age of three, on several instruments, studying music since fourteen, and still takes lessons to this day. What's not to love?

He is proud to teach at all levels, including many professional musicians with master’s degrees, adult beginners, and of course, kids of all ages between 8 and 75.

They are encouraged to select the music they want to learn, so we have worked on classical music and original compositions, which I also coach, jazz, blues, pop, rock, the Great American Songbook, reggae, seven different kinds of Jewish music, and other ethnic music from all over the globe.

Frequently the younger students will request a tune I've never heard, but I magically transform the MP3 into a handwritten score at the student's l
evel. Example, one of my adult beginners wanted to play the big symphonic poem Scheherazade, and I wrote out the main tunes for easy piano.

Music literacy, technique, theory, repertoire, style, and creative expression. Music is a source of fun and community, and I do my best to impart that on each student.
Audition prep!
Beginner-friendly!

I grew up in a teaching family. My mother, sister, and uncle are teachers, and every day for years I heard stories of how they met the needs and challenges of thousands of students. My strengths are treating students as individuals, nurturing creativity, patience, inspiring passion & motivation, and focusing on the fundamentals of music making.

About Isaiah
Isaiah grew up in a family of teachers and musicians. His educational philosophy was shaped around the dinner table, and is equally as inclusive. Making music fun, encouraging self reliance and discipline, promoting musical literacy, and nurturing students' creativity are at the heart of his lessons. Isaiah unapolegetically loves everything from Bach to Bjork, including country. One of his greatest strengths and passions is connecting people with music that makes them smile. Though still in his final year at Chicago College of Performing Arts, he has an extensive teaching resume that includes Tom Garling's Tritone Music School in Arlington Heights, Top Note Music Academy in Skokie, Band for Today in Chicago, Flatts and Sharpe Music Academy, and the blue ribbon St. Joan of Arc Elementary in Evanston, IL.

His skillset is as broad as it
is deep. As a pianist, saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, and composer, he has quickly become one of the most highly sought after musicians in the midwest. His performance experience includes jazz, classical, Latin, rock, pop, R&B, hip hop, funk, musical theater, South Indian fusion, and more. His bands have appeared at a number of high-profile venues around Chicago including House of Blues, The Promontory, Cubby Bear, and an ongoing, nearly year-long residency at Cafe Mustache. Notable musicians he has played with include Randy Deadman (Hamilton), Reuben Garza (Noname), Adam Thornburg (Wynton Marsalis), Jacob Victor (Downbeat), and Gustavo Cortinas (Downbeat). Over the years, Isaiah has earned numerous awards at jazz festivals across the country as an outstanding soloist. His primary teacher and mentor has been Jim Gailloreto (Chicago Symphony Orchestra).

Isaiah also explores his interest of the art of practice on his website, collegepracticing,com, where he has interviewed numerous college students on their practice habits, as well as working professionals with degrees from such esteemed institutions as Berklee College of Music, Indiana University, and Northwestern University.

Isaiah is a really intuitive and talented teacher. He teaches both my kids and they are very different in their needs. Isaiah is really good about considering what motivates them individually and tapping into that for greater engagement during the lesson.

He’s kind, patient and really fun. We’ve asked him to help us play our favorite songs too! He’s a great teacher.

I have played the piano for over 20 years and believe it is the most versatile instrument there is. I love working with beginners and helping them feel comfortable maneuvering around the keys. Even if you eventually want to play another instrument, the piano translates incredibly well to all other instruments.

About Mike
Hi there. I am an elementary music teacher by day looking to work with students in a one-on-one setting to help them reach their music/performing goals. I provide piano, drum, guitar, and ukulele lessons and have been playing for almost 20 years. I recently played acoustic guitar in a local bluegrass band (Groundspeed), as well as bass, percussion, and piano in my church's worship band. I studied Music Education at Elmhurst College, performed in Indiana University's Marching Band (3 years), and have traveled to Jamaica on a short-term teaching assignment. I also speak Spanish at a proficient level.

Laura is an amazing teacher - I could see it right away - and my daughter really opened up to her. It seems, however that my daughter may not be ready to study the piano just yet. We bought a 5-lesson package, so we will see if that changes between now and then. Either way, Laura was a great choice for our first piano instructor!

I teach rock keyboard with a focus on fun. I've spent many, many hours playing songs from the Beatles, Spoon, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver and many more. I received my piano proficiency from Knox College where I majored in music.

My beginning students always start with a song that they love. As soon as those songs are internalized the application of scales will become a necessity, but will never take precedent over rhythm and feel.

Are you ready to start your adventure into the world of piano?

About Oliver
I specialize in upright bass, jazz bass, funk bass, bass technique, and rhythm. I will inspire a positive attitude and good practice habits that will help any student succeed. I’ve extensively studied jazz, latin jazz, funk, rock music, hip hop, bluegrass, folk, and composition.

I can also teach guitar, piano, drums, and voice. As a mulit-instrumentalist, jamming with my students is a priority. Being able to play with other musicians is one of the best feelings you’ll ever experience. I’m happy to take you there!

Recently, I helped one of my bass players get a scholarship to go to Berklee Summer Camp to study music.

I am very excited to continue my teaching on TakeLessons. I look forward to helping new students to become the musician of their dreams.

I've been playing professionally in Chicago for five years where I play up
right for a classical chamber pop group called the Nine Worlds Ensemble and for a jazz group with Frank Catalano, a popular Chicago sax-man. I co-managed, played upright bass, and sang for an ambient-folk band, Sedgewick, based in Chicago. I've played upright bass in the Frank Catalano and Jimmy Chamberlin (drummer for Smashing Pumpkins) super group and Bowmanville.

I am currently dreaming up my own jazz-inspired project called the ohm trio. Working on my debut record under my solo name ohm. Be on the look out!

Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs.
