Greetings!

My name is Eric Behrenfeld, AKA Baron. My strong suit is that I have the experience of playing drums in Chicago Blues bands and working with singers. I also understand how to develop improvisational skills for live performance. I can teach the skills necessary for a person wanting to play drums successfully with other musicians not only in Blues bands, but with Rock, R&B, Surf and Country bands too. I also play the ukulele and a variety of hand percussion instruments as well.

I love to see a student progress and get better at playing drums! Seeing the student play drums and watching their skills improve is a tremendous honor for me as a teacher.

I do audio recordings and mixing for instruments and vocals. My music space, the Blue Leopard Lair, is ideal for singer/songwriters and instrumentalists wanting to produce demos and production tracks. I use Garage Band and Logic Pro X software.

About Eric

I have played drums professionally since the early 1980's in a variety of bands primarily around Chicagoland. When I am not performing locally, I teach drums and percussion. My primary focus as a drummer is Blues and Rock music on drumkit, along with also teaching hand percussion. I also play ukule

Molly is an amazing teacher, overflowing with enthusiasm and encouragement. I'm an amateur singer, and just wanted to take lessons to improve my singing a little bit so I could be better at musical improv. She helped reconnect me with my love of singing, and now I want more.

About Kristina

My approach to singing is rooted in creating a deep understanding of the body as our instrument. We'll start our vocal practice on yoga mats and open up our bodies before deep breathing pranayama exercises, vocal warm-ups, ear-training, and finally repertoire and artistry.

"Stephanie is an excellent teacher! And as a former teacher, my standards are very high. I was really nervous about taking formal singing lessons but Stephanie built my confidence and empowered me to just go for it and have fun! She's able to break things down in accessible ways; when something doesn't make sense she tries to explain it in as many ways as needed. She's energetic, compassionate, and kind. She creates a safe environment with no judgment - just joy and a good time. Since starting to take lessons, I have dared to sing in public and have gotten really positive feedback. All that has been possible because of Stephanie!"

What is a Vintage Violin, and How Are They Different?

I am often asked if my violin is an antique or a vintage violin. Well, first of all, let’s define exactly what is antique or vintage. These seemingly nebulous terms do, in fact, have more precise definitions. An antique dealer, as well as the U.S. Customs Service, will tell you that the item must be at least 100 years old to be considered an antique. So today, an antique violin would have to have been made in 1921 or earlier. The word vintage is slightly more subjective though. The word itself …

Truth or Myth? The Reality Behind 6 Common Tips for Singers

There are so many tips for singers out there -- but did you know some of them may not be actually true? Here, Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R. dispels some of the common myths about singing...   “It’s bad luck to say ‘Good Luck’ before a performance.” “Don’t eat chocolate! It clogs your vocal cords.” “A bad dress rehearsal leads to a good show.” We singers toss around myths more than most. It’s important, however, to recognize which ones are just for fun …

5 Tips for Smooth and Efficient Guitar Chord Transitions
