About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University
of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I strongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

About Marian
I am a guitar teacher with 10+ years of experience teaching all different styles of music. Blues, Folk, Acoustic, funk, ska, Rock, Metal, Melodic, Country, Classical, Punk, Alternative, and various other melodies. I have played concerts all over the state of Illinois and I have taught many students throughout the years. I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. I am very passionate at what I do and I will guide you through the proper steps in becoming a great guitar player. Playing music takes a lot of time and patience as well as a lot of practice playing by yourself and in fr
ont of people. I am very relaxed and motivated to help my students learn and I will guide you through everything.

I would prefer that students bring their own guitars so that you would be more comfortable playing your own instrument, if you can't or do not have one, I have guitars here that you may use but during our sessions only.

CHECK OUT MY VIDEO.

With a lot of practice and a lot of studying, I can show you how to play like a Pro an have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
In my curriculum, students will start off by learning the basics of the guitar, knowing the parts,accessories and so forth. Then We will move on to Tuning and Perfect pitch. As we move on students will learn how to build and maintain a Rhythm.

Learning how to play chords is essential, and we will be going through chord progress
ions and how to recognize and memorize the various chords.
Furthermore, i will be showing students how to Read Tabs and write music. I will be showing students the different types of scales that there as well as the keys that they are in for those who want to become soloists. I will also be teaching different techniques that are incorporated with Tapping on the fretboard as well as various other techniques.

All of these lessons will be taught in our private sessions, and each student will receive homework assignments, so that they can go home and practice what they have learned. I will be having tests later on, in which i would ask you to play one of your favorite songs.

With enough time spent practicing, you can become a master of your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement Studio: amps, guitars, wah pedals, music stands, guitar picks, and music sheets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have an amp, wires, picks, guitars,gig bag,case, music sheets, picks, and music stands.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be cr
eative, respectful and approachable.

About Cheryl
I'm a graphic designer and a Wordpress site builder who loves to create beautiful things.
I believe every entrepreneur should have a beautiful website.
Beautiful websites are expensive.
So build your own, with me.

I've been building wordpress websites since 2009. My clients are entrepreneurs. My students benefit from my design, corporate, association and small business experiences.

If you want a website that is going to convert visitors into actual sales for your service or product based business, let's talk about how I can help you with that.

If you want to build a website for yo
urself that looks professional rather than homemade, I can help you with that.

Get help with selecting the right keywords to draw people to your site.

Maybe you're missing information that is relevant to your customers' decision making process, let me take you through a site audit.

Perhaps people are not finding what they're looking for on your site or you need help with photos, design or layout, I can help with that as well.

If you're trying to figure out Woocommerce, calendars, plugins, backups or analytics, then definitely get in touch.

Just complete a brief needs assessment questionnaire to ensure you learn what you need. I offer an easy to follow, customized WordPress guide upon completion that summarizes what we've covered.

Cheryl provided a great learning experience about WordPress. I was not familiar with the program at all until I went to a workshop she presented at. Cheryl did not present the information in terms that were overly technical, making it easy to understand. Cheryl is definitely well versed in this topic and was very helpful in answering questions after the workshop. I would recommend her to anyone seeking to learn more about WordPress

I hesitated for only a moment before giving Cheryl a "Best Instructor Ever" rating because I taught computer applications for over 20 years ;-)
However, Cheryl's knowledge and enthusiasm are infectious and I had to be honest. She is tirelessly devoted to providing her clients with the best service she has to offer (which is the best!) and uniquely insightful and creative when it comes to not only meeting, but surpassing their wildest expectations.
