My lessons create a fun and motivational learning environment that promotes goal setting, good habits, positive self esteem based on tangible accomplishments, and an appreciation for the rewards of diligence and perseverance.

My services include music lessons in trumpet, jazz improvisation, music theory, jazz theory, and audition preparation.

I am currently the Principal Trumpeter in the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra, Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Grant Park Summer Music Festival Orchestra, Principal Trumpet with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, and former Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. I have performed with the Chicago Symphony and Milwaukee Symphony.

I Hold a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of South Carolina and I am a certified band director with 5 years band directing experience.

I particularly enjoy audition coaching, having won three international symphony orchestra auditions myself. My students have jobs ...

Singing of all kinds begins with healthy vocal technique. Learning the correct warming up and use of the voice and breath is essential for a career in singing with any longevity. I use a combination of classical (bel canto) and contemporary styles of singing to bring out the best in each student's voice. My work with world renowned Vocal Instructor Jeanne LoVetri, has increased my proficiency in helping students with many kinds of vocal issues, at all levels of experience. We will work on breathing, range, voice blending, resonance, flexibility, projection and articulation. I am excellent at diagnosing and resolving vocal issues, as well as teaching students to connect to their material and sing with ease and expression.

About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

It is my belief that piano lessons should be accessible to anyone, regardless of personal income. To that end, I strive to provide as affordable a rate as I can to my students. Additionally, I consider it essential to teach music as wholistically as possible. Therefore, I supplement my piano lessons with music theory/composition lessons, so my students can understand not only how to play the notes, but why as well. With practice, you'll learn how to play and describe all music, not just classical piano. To enroll in music theory/composition lessons, simply enroll in my hour-long or longer piano lessons. You may of course also dedicate a full hour or longer to the piano, should you wish to forego the musical theory portion. Music theory and composition lessons are ONLY available one-hour time frames or longer. Let's start your musical journey!

About Joseph

I began studying the piano in my early high school years and instantly fell in love with what I consider the ultimate musical instrument. The more I studied the piano, the more I wanted to learn how music is conceived and put together. Between the act of sitting down at a piano bench to let my fing

Ivan
As a beginner piano student with very little experience with the instrument, Joseph really did a great job easing me into learning my way around the piano. His lessons were clear and easy to understand with good direction on what to improve on next. He was patient, understanding, and very accommodating to questions I had regarding the material.
I would definitely recommend Joseph to anyone looking for a piano instructor!
Jonathan
Joseph has been a fantastic teacher. He asked me early on what I want to focus on. The pieces he picked for me to practice were challenging, but fair. I'm very pleased with how well I've progressed. I would recommend Joseph highly. If you want someone knowledgeable, patient, and down-to-earth, Joseph is your guy!

My daughter switched to learning with Roberta after 2 years of flute lessons, and the difference now that she is learning with Roberta has been amazing. With her warmth and enthusiasm, Roberta inspires and encourages my daughter to continuously improve, and my daughter has finally started enjoying playing flute again. I am very happy with the rate at which my daughter is progressing, with her lessons having an equal emphasis on technical skill and musicality."
