Suzuki Method

About Dan
I am a member of the Chichago Northwest Symphony Orchestra. I have been instructing students from kindergarten to high-school all over Chicago area for the past thirteen years. My highest accomplishment is having a high-school sophomore student playing first chair first violin on Chamber Orchestra and third chair first violin in Symphonic Orchestra at Maine Township High School, Park Ridge, Illinois. Other accomplishments are having students prepared for Granquist Memorial Music Competition, Geneva Illinois.

My lessons are always focused on adapting the violin practice to fit the character
of the individual student. Besides learning good violin performance practices, the student will shape up character by developing specific neural pathways that will help in child development as well as overall cognitive activity.

Learning to play violin not only opens the mind for greater understanding of artistic expressions but also adds to the quality of experiencing life more complex otherwise not possible in absence of music.

Lessons are based on the Suzuki school but adapted for the preferences and/or necessities of the student.

I am a current student of Dan's and have enjoyed his lessons. I can feel the improvement since starting. Initially I was self-taught and debated about taking private lessons, but now I am very happy I did. I would highly recommend Dan as a violin instructor.

Dan is very punctual and professional and friendly . We started playing violin for the first time this past month and he helped us prepare for our lessons and also make sure we have the proper instrument that fits our daughter well . He has good communication is on time and takes his time explaining new techniques in his lesson . We hope to have a long term relationship to get to a level that we want to be at . He's very kind and honest and displays competency in his instrument of interest

It is important for me to teach the building blocks of music: scales, circle of fifths, and working with technique to make learning pieces easier. We will teach you about the parts of your instrument inside and out and even stretching methods to help keep you limber to prevent any injury. I teach not only classical music, but also jazz, rock, and contemporary. Keeping my students engaged and passionate about what they are learning is key.

About Brit
As a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Berklee College of Music, I attended the most prestigious contemporary music school in the world. I was exposed to so many amazing styles of music and rubbed shoulders with the most incredible musicians you can imagine (and performed alongside them)! I have taken my experiences and knowledge from Berklee and infused it into my teaching style. I do use Suzuki method because I believe it is an excellent foundation to work upon, but I also think that jazz and contemporary studies are a great way to expand one's horizon and learn about music in an entirely new and
fun way!

We appreciate her attention to detail with all aspects of the lessons from what she is working on with the student to what practice exercises the student needs to do. She keeps the student challenged but yet makes sure the song or excercise is doable. She has a caring and warm demeanor. We highly recommend her to teach your student.

Thank you for considering CreasonStudios for your violinist-in-training. I strive to incorporate superb posture, smooth technique, and performance-ready musicianship, as well as theory, notes, and rhythm =) I am a laid-back/more fun personality that encourages students to practice without being a drill Sargent. I offer group performance opportunities for nearby students. I want you to love your instrument and music as much as possible. So, let's get started!

About Lisa
I have been teaching violin since 1991 and have had many students go on to become violin teachers and performers. Music is a great way to open a child’s mind to better overall learning and a spectacular hobby for the adult student. You’ll even get chances to perform (if you want them).

I have studied with professors from the Galamian, Suzuki, Roland, and old school Russian methodologies and incorporate the best of all. I also continue to learn and study to help students of all ages and abilities gain masterful technique and sound.

Students excel into concertmaster positions; are accepted
into youth symphonies (MYA, Wisconsin Honors Orchestra, and beyond); gain college scholarships; and, learn how to play the styles that interest them most.

Many previous students have received college music scholarships, as well as gone on to professional musical careers. Adult students have continued to grow and enjoy performing in various community opportunities.

I am an adult student and have been taking lessons from Lisa for several years. She is an excellent teacher - patient, creative, challenging, and flexible; characteristics of a great teacher. I've had the great pleasure of watching her develop many young violinists and can't recommend her enough for anyone (of any age) who is interested in learning this wonderful and challenging instrument!
