Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

I am a professional singer, pianist, and photographer. I studies at EIU with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice and piano. Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply found

I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

I had a great first lesson with Armen.
He immediately identified some areas of improvement and I really liked his style which is rigorous, demanding and rewarding at the same time.
Can't wait to our next lesson,

I've been playing guitar, composing multi-instrumental music, producing music, playing in professional and local bands, and have been an active studio session player for 17 years.
I have been teaching guitar for just as long, and helped many students understand break-through concepts and acquire skills that other teachers were unable to.
I have taught total and complete beginners to play their favorite song after 2 weeks, with 1 hour per day practice time. I taught my best friend and my brother to play guitar, both are now in professional touring bands.

About Peter

I have been composing and producing music for 20+ years. Since I got my first guitar at 13, I've been playing in bands, writing, recording & mixing songs. Touring with bands throughout the U.S. And personally learning from my network of industry veterans who have worked with bands such as: The Roll

I had a great time learning how to play guitar and am on my way to playing my favorite songs! Would highly recommend!!

I learned everything I know about guitar from Peter, because of him I have an excellent understanding of not only how to play guitar, but how to structure and write music. This has led me to play live music and jam with musicians on a regular basis. He is an amazing guitar instructor, and can teach you whatever you want to learn — I highly recommend him.

I have performed with the Chicago Symphony and Milwaukee Symphony.

I feel fortunate to have Bill as my teacher. Bill is an outstanding player and teacher. I have been able to progress far faster with lessons with Bill than I could on my own.

Chandler
When Bill was my band director over a decade ago, he was the best music teacher I'd had at that point. After reconnecting with him and having him work with me on my techniques more recently as an adult player, that opinion still stands very strongly. He has a wonderful way of phrasing things that help you just "get it," and has expert advice from everything from fundamentals and helping you achieve your best sound, to more advanced techniques such as double and triple tonguing.

Bill is a great pedagogue and a fabulous trumpet player! Thank you for the great information!

"I completed eight lessons with Jason and was very satisfied with the musical lessons received. I learned much about the piano, chords, patterns, and theory. On the eighth lesson I received a guitar tutorial and was very impressed with his playing and teaching. I highly recommend Jason as an instructor for the musical instruments that he teaches.
