Caleb has been teaching privately in the Chicago area for 6 years now and is eager to teach students with any amount of experience, especially those who are eager to approach music from a variety of perspectives.
I believe that the best way to teach a brass instrument at any level, is simply to check in and make sure that the student has a great understanding of what a beautiful sound is on their instrument. This is done in a patient and positive environment, filled with the best possible music making to serve as a model to aspire to. With small, attainable goals and encouragement to practive at least a small amount on a daily basis, you cannot help of improve, and hopefully have a good time playing whatever music interests you while doing so. The journey is a bit different for everyone, but anyone can make a beautiful sound, and go from there!
I like to strike a balance of teaching out of various method books(depending on the student and their level of ability, some are more suitable than others of course and I help guide the way), and learning to play by ear, which can be almost anything the student wants to learn, provided it's not overly complicated for them. Technique has it's place, but is certainly not the whole story. Learning music that is fun, while at the same time learning to get better at your instrument, makes the overall process enjoyable and rewarding. Once you have the right tools, music is something that can be fulfilling for the rest of your life, especially when you learn to do it in a fun and healthy way.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a classically trained singer I will instruct you in all aspects of singing technique, from breath control and support to improving your tone, range, flexibility and resonance. I have recently completed training in Somatic Voicework, The LoVetri Method, which has enriched my understanding of the mechanics and health of the voice, as well as applications of technique to CCM or contemporary musical styles of singing.
My familiarity with a variety of musical styles from pop/rock, R&B, and country, to musical theater, lounge and jazz makes me an ideal teacher for those interested in contemporary styles.
I have spent many years developing my own style of singing and instruction. I draw on my experiences and training not only in music, but theater and movement, (Linklater, Alexander Technique, Grotowski) to create a well rounded approach to singing and performing. As an instructor, I am most interested in helping students find their true voice and artistic style. I teach students to find expression through and with a foundation of technique, rather then in spite of it. I also am very interested in helping students deal with the mental/emotional aspects of performance, an all important area so frequently ignored by music teachers. My style is nurturing, yet disciplined, and sprinkled liberally with good-natured humor."
*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio space is fully equipped with a piano, P.A. system with microphones, CD, MP3 player for tracks, and ability to record lessons if the student desires.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Please have a piano (in tune!) or keyboard for use in your in home lessons.
*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained, but I am very adept at teaching music in a wide variety of styles, including most contemporary styles of music including pop/rock, roots, swing, jazz and blues, country, r&b, and of course musical theater and cabaret. My band performs an eclectic mix of originals and covers in the roots rock genre, and I write music as well. I have many years of experience in the theater as an actress, and I coach acting technique and performance. I coach singer/songwriters, and all types of singers, of all ages. I have a workshop that specializes in helping people learn to perform better in front of an audience, and I host the Singer's Salon in Chicago, which is a supportive opportunity to perform regularly! I also coach bands, to improve their vocals, harmonies, etc.

While I am a highly trained singer that can sing anything: Pop, Rock, Church Songs, Broadway, Opera, etc. - I am NOT the best accompanist. As long as you are fine working on songs with a pre-recorded accompaniment track, or a capella - I'm the teacher for you!
I'm also lucky enough to be a successful working actor and have been a paid musical theatre performer in the Chicago-land area for the past 13 years. That being said, I will occasionally have auditions or rehearsals. Because of this, I try to keep my prices affordable in exchang
I'm also a former cast member of Walt Disney World and am a skilled puppeteer. I'm a funny / nerdy / silly teacher, so all levels of students will feel welcome. I look forward to teaching you! :)

I play the trombone at the advanced level and am proficient on the barritone (euphonium) and trumpet. I am also a trained vocalist.
I have enjoyed performing solos, and have played in ensembles, concert bands, and orchestras over the years, but some of my greatest satisfaction has come from teaching.
My goal is not merely to teach an instrument but to produce musicians. I take an interest in each student and know how to bring out their best. I inspire each student to succeed and truly enjoy making music.

Her interest in teaching piano began when she was sixteen years old. Since then, Miss Odazaki has had experience with students ages 6 to 80 years old. Several of her students have won awards and have been admitted into the top Brazilian conservatory (São Paulo State Music School and São Paulo Municipal Theater Conservatory of Music). Her most recent accomplishment has
From 2009 to 2015, Miss Odazaki worked for the social project: "Projeto Guri Santa Marcelina" where she has taught theory classes and served as a vocal staff accompanist. This is a social project that aims to improve the lives of impoverished Brazilian children through music education. She was also a staff member of Yamaha Music School (the first school of its kind in Brazil), where she organized and instructed piano lessons and Junior Music Courses. Here she received training from official Yamaha instructors from Japan.
Miss Odazaki has been an active participant in master-classes with several renowned pianists such as Olga Kiun (Russia-Brazil), Ronan O'Hara (England), Piotr Banasik (Poland), Caio Pagano (Brazil-USA), Flavio Varani (Brazil-USA), Maciej Pikulski (Poland), Frank Braley (France) and Marcos Fregnani (Brazil-Germany).
She believes that a good teacher is also a good performer who never stops seeking and practicing. Because of that, she decided to move to the United States to pursue her MM in Piano Performance at Southern Illinois University and studied with Dr. Junghwa Lee.
During her first semester she was the winner of the concerto competition “Stars of Altgeld”. This gave her the opportunity to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto N. 20 in D minor, K. 466. as a soloist with the Southern Illinois Symphony Orchestra.
I have a lot of experience teaching kids and also on the concert hall. I have played with many orchestras around the world with conductors like Gustavo Dudamel and Sir Simon Rattle.
I would like to share my experiences and my knowledge with my students and find a fun and focus way to learn violin.

I have performed concertos under the batons of Eli
Over the last 7 years of teaching professionally, I have fallen in love with teaching and enjoy working with students of all ages and levels. I encourage my students to balance their practice time between fundamentals (i.e. scales, graded method books, theory), and passion projects (i.e. what do you REALLY want to play?). I also like to teach applied improvisation, in which you use the music theory you are learning to create your own original music. With this approach, you will establish strong and flexible foundations on which you can learn to master the music you are most passionate about.
Students should expect to budget routine practice time between lessons into their schedule. We will work together to devise a practice plan that will work for you. I will hold you accountable to the practice and achievement goals each week so that you can make the most out of the time and money your are investing in music lessons.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your musical goals!
