My daughters had their first piano lesson today with Terri. I can honestly say that I’ve never met anyone so patient and sweet natured and professional like Terri. The first time I spoke to her on the phone reflected her nature in person. Shes very knowledgeable with the piano music. She knows how to level herself with my 7 year old and specially with my know it all 5 year old. After the lessons she updated me with their progress and commented on my kids strengths and weaknesses. She just didn’t talk to me as her client but she talked to me like a friend. Her smile radiated through the music she teaches. We all loved her.

Private Music Theory Teacher

There is no finer teacher of music theory in Illinois. I have retaught those who already possess a music degree but realize there is a lot missing.

Theory is actually a misnomer for the nuts and bolts, the ABC's of music, without which you will flounder, but with which you will go everywhere.

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

awesome instructor!
Jennifer
I studied under Leilah for several years and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. She was my first teacher; she showed me the basics of cello and taught me in Suzuki books 1-6. One thing Leilah does that not many cello teachers do is play with her students. At my lessons, Leilah always had her cello out and was ready to demonstrate a technique or playing style, which helped immensely with my understanding of music. Having Leilah as a teacher has given me the skills and preparation I need to play in college. I would recommend her to any cello student who is willing to work hard to improve.

Ms. Leilah has an in depth understanding of the Suzuki Method but also uses many inventive ideas to make lessons fresh and motivating!

"Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching."

"Today Mimi helped me learn about primary and secondary triads. She was very patient and instructive in teaching me this. She also helped me understand how to write melodies using some intervals and was very positive and complimentary about this. She was also very positive and complimentary in critiquing a transcription that I wrote. I am learning a lot with Mimi and she is very inspiring. Definitely several points above average!:)"
