It's easy to say that Scott knows what he's talking about, he has plenty of experience and does a great job breaking things down to a simpler form. I've enjoyed my first month's classes and look forward to gaining a repertoire with him.

I'm a recent college graduate from Columbia College Chicago. Who has been performing, composing, and studying various music for the past 13 years. I have just started teaching private lessons in guitar and composition. Everybody can write music and if you perform music you can write music, it's an invaluable skill-set that you'll carry with you for the rest of your music career. From beginning song-writing to advance composition, I'm sure I can help guide you with your work.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time.

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

My 5-year old twins had their first lesson with Grace today. She was on time, got right to work, and connected with them both really well (back to back lessons). She was professional with us, and had both girls giggling at points in their lesson. They loved her and excited to practice, which is all we could ask for. We look forward to seeing her next week!
Valentina M.
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

Grace was very sweet and great with my 7 year old daughter.

Currently accepting students of all ages and levels.

This was my daughters first music lesson ever, and Kirsty was very patient with her, and provided just the right instruction and practice incentives for a young beginner.

Thank you so very much for your kindness and expertise. As a complete novice, you made me comfortable and encouraged.

very good.. She appreciated what I already knew, and corrected me honestly. This in turn helped in open up to her and accept her teaching and instructions better. Gave me practice material, and gave me some very sound advice.

She has studied voice with some of the best technicians I have known and with her background in vocal technique and her experiences in performing many years, I am sure any student would be very happy to work with this lovely and talented lady..."

"I've been playing a few instruments for 23 years, and finally decided to get into violin. Farobag made me realize that I know next to nothing about the violin, and there is so much to learn. I played only a few notes in my first lesson, but his instruction was worth every penny. I am very excited for the next lesson and look forward to learning everything I can from Farobag. Highly recommended."

"We love Mr. Heaton. My son is 13 and on the autism spectrum and so focus can be hard for him, he was really struggling in school based orchestra because they couldn't give him one on one attention. He also struggles with fine motor delays (which is why we chose a string instrument). We've been doing lessons with Nicholas for almost a year now. Nicholas always takes his time with my child and is extremely patient. My son has gained SO much confidence since we began taking these private lessons. They work on not just learning to play cello but learning how to really understand/read the music and making sure that the techniques he's learning (hand positions, ways of sitting and moving) are all exactly what he needs to progress successfully in his orchestra and going forward. My son enjoys his lessons and I feel like we always get our money's worth. I can't wait to see where he will be another year from now working so closely with such an amazing musician and teacher."

Molly is dedicated to helping new and current students grow to the best of their abilities. She has helped me grow in all aspects of my voice, including breathing and diction. My voice is much stronger and fuller thanks to her teaching. I also love having voice lessons over FaceTime from the comfort of my own home. I would highly recommend her!"

How to Practice Singing at Home: Setting Up Your Practice Space

Unlike most other musical instrument, your voice is something that you carry with you everywhere! This is perhaps why many beginners are less likely to consider how their practice space should be set up, and why they have more trouble with performances. Practicing singing is just like any other kind of practice, whether for music, the arts, or a sport. You have to establish a space where you can focus on what you're doing with the least number of distractions. Knowing how to practice will take …
