I've known Mike since he was a teenager. Drumming is, and always was, his passion. You can't find a better instructor. His knowledge, experience and patience with younger children is over the top! My 5 year old grandson is a student and absolutely loves his lessons and his teacher. My rating is 5+

My child and I both share a love of drums. Unfortunately I wasn't very good at it, well at least til Mike came along. Now my son is in a band and I get to jam with them during practice. All thanks to you Mike. The take home DVD's as well really enhanced. This way we could go over what he just learned. Rock on buddy!!

Students will have full access during lesson time to recording equipment. The best way to learn how to improve is to listen to yourself play.

Students are encouraged to use Alfreds Method Books for Snare and Drum Set, Riley Books, and the Chester book for independence. Also, I teach the Faber Piano Adventures Series. Alfred's and Hal Leonard for guitar.

About Nicholas
Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends.

When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children. Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of music and theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
I set an individual c
urriculum based on students needs, wants and aspirations. We will focus on proper technique, theory, musicianship and sightreading to become a better all around musician. After a few months of lessons, you will have the proper fundamentals to grow as a musician and discover the art of music.

I hadn't played the trumpet in 30 years. My first lesson with Nicholas was like starting from scratch. He is very knowledgeable, polite, professional, and definitely patient. I feel that that homework Nicholas assigned was spot on. I'm playing better already after only two days. I would certainly recommend him to a friend.

In a relaxed atmosphere, the student and I are working together to advance their musical goals. Sometimes goals are reached quickly, more often we need more time and repetition to advance. The mind learns quicker than the body, so focused
practice will help train the body and bring it to the mind's level.

Finished Basement studio: drum set, snare drum, small mallet, xylophone and electric piano, room for parents to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should provide sticks and mallets and purchase a book that we will work out of weekly.

Private drum lessons available for beginning to advanced drum students. The curriculum includes learning to read music through a method book and applying that knowledge to real songs in chart form. Rudiments, drum grooves, sticking, drum fills, keeping tempo, and songs will be touched upon in lessons. Advanced studies include learning more advanced concepts on the drum set. Travel available for in home lessons up to 15 miles pending location, scheduling, and availability. 2 weeks or more notice is required for discontinuation of lessons.

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!

He's very receptive and adjusts his lessons according to what my kids are interested in. For example one of my kids was learning notes, but then the other wanted to learn a specific song and he easily adjusted to focus on what each of them wanted to do to. My kids love him!

I am also ver

The studio is equipped with a 76-key keyboard, drum set, music stands, recording equipment and a PA system. Plenty of parking available, either in the driveway or on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
In order to teach at a student's home I will need a quiet room/area where we can concentrate on our studies. If the student is taking drum or piano lessons, they will need a drum kit or piano/keyboard.

Students can expect to focus heavily on fundamental drumming techniques, successful practice methods, as well as listening exercises that are all included in the lesson experience. Jamie highly encourages drummers to explore the music they appreciate the most - favorite songs, artists, styles, drummers, or musical repertoire that is to be performed by the student in the future. Learning HOW to practice on the instrument is the main goal that's continually reinforced in Jamie's lesson room.

About Jamie

Come to my studio to make some noise! With 10 years of drumming under my belt I will teach you how to play drums and tap into your inner metronome.

About John
Hey how is going new students?! My name is John and I'm looking forward to teaching you music. I started teaching myself how to play piano by ear when I was 15 because I just loved the sound of piano. I moved on to learn drums at 17 and bass in college. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelors in Science and played in many shows on campus. Every instrument I've ever played comes from personal choice based on the sound. Being able to read music is a great trait to have, but I want to teach you how to hear music with your inner ear. My class will help you with improvising, recognizing major/minor chords, analyzing a song to play it back within minutes, finding the key of a song, chord inversions, and much more! My lessons are for students who already know their instrument. I also have a studio in Logan Square for
recording purposes for all students. Lets start our lessons!

I've been playing drums for 18 years, and have had some amazing opportunities because of it. In that time I've learned so much about a wide variety of styles and I continue to learn to this day. Not only can I teach you how to play the drums, I can help you learn to understand them as well. That includes more than just reading music and playing beats; it's exploring rhythmic techniques together, learning the fundamentals of tuning, and helping you discover your sound. Furthermore, as lessons progress, I can help you challenge yourself by performing and recording alongside other instruments as well (per request and at absolutely no extra charge).

Please remember that everyone processes things differently, and there is no right or wrong way to learn.

About James
Hello! My name is JD and I am a professional drummer. I've been playing for 18 years and in that time I've toured through 30 states and played everything from large festivals to small basements. I'm well versed in a wide variety of styles, from blues and pop, to punk and metal. When you take lessons with me, we're going to learn your way. Everybody operates differently, so we will work together to find the best way for you to achieve your goals. With every student, we will begin our introduction by creating a curriculum together, so we can always be on the same page with learning the things you both need AND want to, without missing any of the good stuff!

Just a few things you can expect from our lessons are:

- Understanding of rhythm and timing
- Basic fundamentals behind tuning and placement
- Learning to play REAL songs of your
choice
- Controlling techniques unique to your playing style
- Breathing and posture importance
- How to choose gear (Don't let others decide for you!!!)
- Learning to play alongside other instruments

and most importantly: How to find your sound!

I believe whole heartedly in an open door approach, so if you have any questions prior to signing up for lessons, please do not hesitate to reach out to me via E-Mail at any time!

I look forward to meeting all of you, and lets rock!
