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!

My lessons are geared toward the individual student. I spend the first lesson getting to know the student's strengths and weaknesses, history, hobbies, and general feelings about music. This helps me to better understand what the student (or parent) is hoping to gain from taking piano lessons. My lessons are meant to produce the best possible success, and most importantly, a great time and a permanent love of music.

About Grace

I started piano lessons at the age of 3 and continued through middle school. I played the flute in the high school band and continued to pursue my love of music in college where I joined the Piano Ensemble and received a degree in Music from DePaul University. I graduated in 2015 with high honors

The teacher seems like she’s always in a hurry. She leaves a few minutes before it ends. She’s friendly but doesn’t make real conversation with the parent to update about my child’s progress. Knowledgeable though coz my daughter learned fast. She. Would’ve been perfect if she had a great personality

Loretta M.

Chicago, IL

Bgcheck Background Checked


Piano lessons definitely involve theory, but are structured around the genre of music set by the student's goals. Music theory is taught around a repertoire that the student builds throughout the piano program so that they build a portfolio from which they can pay. Then performance ad versatility become the second focus.

About Loretta

I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I

I have been playing violin for over 35 years, and used to played with youth symphony as an associate concertmaster , I'm very passionate about playing and teaching violin.
To make violin a incredible sound, you have to play in a right way, I will teach you not only the correct methods to play but also to make great sound in terms of bowing technique, fingering and intonation, rhythm, music etc, I am extremely sensitive about violin sound. My focus is to teach and help you to grasp the fundamental basis, and how to produce beautiful tone, that is what the violin is all about.
I accept students from beginner to intermediate and some advanced that will help you establish the solid foundation, and achieve your goals whether you want to be just a hobby violinist or for school or pursue violin career..

"Attentive Instructon

I am an adult student and have taken lessons in the past and am starting again. I have enjoyed the personal and attentive instruction given. Susan sits right by the piano and watches every movement. Teachers I have had in the past have not done this. She provides supplemental material that I need. She is always very friendly, kind, patient and has a great deal of professional knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone."

"My son Joseph takes lessons with Seth. Joseph can get distracted and get off track throughout his lessons at times. Seth has the ability and the patience to get him re-focused on the matter at hand-the piano. I know Joseph does not like to practice very much but gets very excited when he knows Seth is coming over to work with him and teach him. He is doing quite well and I am very happy we started lessons with Seth after thinking about it for over 1 year. Thanks Seth!"
