Musical Theatre from North Central College
Awarded National Chorale Award from Ridgewood High School
Teaching since 2012
I am a professional musical theatre performer who has been working primarily in Chicago for the past 10 years. I have had the pleasure of working with companies such as Northlight Theatre, Walt Disney World, Provision, Fox Valley Rep, Boho, First Folio Theatre, and have even had the honor of working with Stephen Schwartz. In addition, I have also had callbacks for Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, The Goodman Theatre, Theatre at the Center, Marriott Theatre, The Evil Dead Musical National Tour and The Rock of Ages National Tour. (When I improve my dance ability - I hope to add some of these theatres to my resume) :) During lessons I will focus on giving you a customized lesson plan specifically designed to enhance your instrument and talents. Because of this, I prefer not to accompany on the piano during lessons as it takes my focus off of you. Whether you want to learn how to belt like Idina, or hit beautiful high notes like Kristin Chenoweth, I can help. Experienced Musical ...

Expressing yourself is the ultimate goal of music and my job is to help you get your point across! Like any musician, music is my life. I love to soak it in any way I can! Whether it be listening to records, jamming with my friends or watching all the live concert footage of Stevie Ray Vaughan

Jeremiah D.Book Now
Hi, I'm Jeremiah! I've been playing drums/percussion since I was 11 years old. I'm 23 now with a BM in Percussion Performance and I love playing all types of music! Currently I:
• gig with local artists that come from a range of genres: from jazz to pop to rock to folk
• also have experience playing percussion in symphony orchestras/concert bands
• have also held the drum/percussion seat for 14 different musicals
If any or all of those areas are of interest to you, I'd love to see if we'd make a good match! I'm super excited to share what I've learned (and am still learning) with beginning/intermediate students that love the thrill and challenge that comes from performing live music, no matter what form that takes.
Hi! I'm a freelance drummer/percussionist based in Chicagoland. In the spring of 2019, I graduated from Coe College with a Bachelor of Music degree in Percussion Performance. These days, I'm very happy to have the opportunity to play drums with various artists that span a multitude of genres: Dan

Music literacy, technique, theory, repertoire, style, and creative expression. Music is a source of fun and community, and I do my best to impart that on each student.
I grew up in a teaching family. My mother, sister, and uncle are teachers, and every day for years I heard stories of how they met the needs and challenges of thousands of students. My strengths are treating students as individuals, nurturing creativity, patience, inspiring passion & motivation, and focusing on the fundamentals of music making.

In addition to the actual instruction, he also had great advice on what to or not to buy - I am an expert at the violin (this is not like an Asian thing but I had insisted to learn it) but was a complete novice with the guitar. It also helps that he is a bonafide musician in an actual band - I attended one of his concerts, which was very enjoyable, but had to leave before I could talk to him."
I came to Molly because I had never really sung before, and had wanted to pick it up after playing different instruments. I was pretty self conscious about the whole idea of singing, and didnt really have that much faith in it. I really didnt know what to expect from singing lessons at all, but Molly really broke things down for me and made the experience positive. She wasn't judgmental or pushy in any way at all. She listened to my ideas of what I wanted to sing, and some of the artists I got inspiration from. Not only that, but she's really awesome because she likes so many different genres of music! I would think that most vocal teachers prefer more classical types of music, but Molly could totally relate to rock n roll, alternative, etc. After my first lesson with Molly I felt 100% more confident about training my voice, and everything I was looking for in voice lessons I found. Thats why I keep taking lessons from her. She set me up with many different exercises to practice by myself, and she does a really good job of breaking things down so that a person with no singing experience can understand everything. Overall, I would recommend anyone, regardless of age or music preference to go to Molly for vocal lessons.
Also, she does skype lessons which is a HUGE help for me considering I live a little far from her. (I didnt know what to expect with that either, but you'll be surprised how well it works).
Did you know there are a handful of common guitar chord progressions that are repeatedly used throughout hundreds of songs? If you've spent much time on YouTube, you might be familiar with the Axis of Awesome. In their popular video, the Axis of Awesome performs a compilation of around 50 songs in under six minutes, all while using the same guitar chord progression. The video is very entertaining as it creatively reveals a secret that professional musicians have known for decades. Guitar …
