Hristo M.

Brookfield, IL

About Hristo

I've been teaching guitar professionally since I've been 17 and I've taught a wide range of musicals styles from Jazz, Blues, Fusion, to Rock you name it. My first experience with the instrument was 8 years ago and since then I haven't put it down. Early on in my teaching career I found that it's important for students to have the drive to learn, but it's more important to have someone that can guide them in the right direction. I believe the role of a teacher is not only to instill that drive, but to fuel the fire of their imaginations through fun and effective exercises. I've had the pleasur
e of teaching students ranging from 5 to 60 years of age and have found that the fundamentals of playing are applied across the map.

I'm currently attending Columbia College of Chicago and I'll be receiving my bachelors in instrumental performance mid May. I've studied under some great players such as Frank Dawson, Harry Hmura, Chris Forte and currently studying under Peter Lerner.

*** Lesson Details ***
I understand what it's like to be in a tense environment where all the material is condensed and thrown at you in a set amount of time. I'm not an advocate of such curriculums. I promote an atmosphere where a student isn't afraid to ask questions and feels the need to express his or her thoughts on whatever we may be learning.

I've come to the conclusion that everyone learns differently and different avenues need to be taken in order for a student to learn. I feel as though every student needs a customized lesson plan that will help them excel. We're all attracted to music in one way or another so I feel the need to tend to what attracted you to playing and writing music in the first place. For example if you like classic rock we will explore certain techniques, ideas, songs and song structures that pertain to that genre. I like to partner you're interests with basic fundamentals of music such as note reading, music theory, and listening exercises. The goal is to keep progressing and learning new things.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upstairs studio: guitar rig set-up, studio speakers, pro tools set up, recording gear, practice amps, music stands, chairs, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide an amplifier, cable, tuner, sheet music and even a guitar need be. I expect my students to provide themselves with a guitar so after the lesson and during the week they can practice the material I have provided them with.

*** Specialties ***
I like to start out young students with reading music along with teaching them and exploring the music they are interested in.

Hristo is patient and full of passion for music. He is very knowledgeable and capable of imparting this knowledge well on children, as he has done thus far with our 10-year old and 6 year-old (first full month of lessons). He is flexible and even came to our house for the lesson when our schedule for that day was affected by another commitment.

Its going well thus far and our sons look forward to the lessons every week.

This guy loves what he does!

Histro is always on time and is very knowledgeable. He is a college grad that can teach you soo much. I've never played guitar before and after my third lesson with him, I already know 12 chords and am capable of playing at least two songs. A very relaxing way to spend my sundays. He makes it fun to learn the guitar!

Brian G.

Evergreen Park, IL

About Brian

Hello, my name is Brian and I am currently studying my Bachelor's in Music Education at VanderCook College of Music. It is the only college in the world that specializes in specifically Music Education, and has been since 1909. The school teaches us a basic understanding of 17 instruments and voice, while also teaching theory, aural skills, music history, professional ed courses, and includes a large number of various ensembles. Because of this, I'm able to teach some basic concepts on all of the band/orchestra instruments. Personally, I started taking piano lessons in 2000 and started drum se
t lessons in 2002. I've always had a dual musician life after that point, and was apart of the band and jazz band programs from 5th grade until now (sophomore in college). While attending Marist High School, I taught myself guitar, bass guitar, banjo, harmonica, and tin whistle. I expanded my concepts of music and genres, and find myself very knowledgeable of classical, jazz, rock, blues, and pop on piano, and fluent in jazz, blues, rock, Latin, and pop styles on drum set. I am willing to teach any student their musical needs as they prosper through their lives as an artist. I hope to one day teach in a band setting with my degree, offer private lessons, and compose music on the side.

*** Lesson Details ***
For lessons, I'm ready to work on making some music while always having fun. As the lessons progress, I start to expect more from the student regarding retaining knowledge and muscle memory throughout learning their technique and repertoire. This will come with consistent practice. After 3 or 6 months, the beginning students will find themselves recognizing note names, rhythms, meter, melodies and harmonies, and mechanics of their instrument. My goal is to keep the student interested in the music while learning about themselves.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ piano

Basement w/ drum set, guitars, bass, amps, harmonicas

both have seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect my students to provide themselves with their own instrument but I would provide my own in addition to theirs while teaching, unless there is the sharing of a piano. I can also provide various sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical, jazz, rock, and blues for piano. I specialize in rudimentary drumming, rock, jazz, and latin for drums/percussion. I believe in making sure the student learns as much as possible about his or her instrument, can improve each day, and ultimately can have fun while playing.

This teacher has many great qualities in the field of music education.

I am learning a great deal from this teacher about the piano and life qualities in general. I have taken the tools I've learned from each lesson to apply in my own practice to develop myself as a musician. I would recommend Brian Goodman to anyone interested in learning about music.

 My name is Ricardo.

I have over 26 years of experience teaching piano students with skill levels that range from beginner to advanced.  I have also instructed major and non-major piano students at the College level.  I have taught pian
o lessons to children, teenagers, adults and elderly people.  I have also had experience developing and implementing piano curriculum. I have performed at numerous recitals, concerts, and church services throughout the years.  It has always been my goal to commit to my students and to create the best possible learning environment according to their needs, goals, and backgrounds.  I carefully select repertoire and technical exercises that suit the needs of my students. I am comfortable with teaching conventional classical repertoire, hymns and praise, and popular repertoire including Pop and jazz. I teach my students solid technique, interpretative and sight-reading skills, and music theory foundations. I seek to instill the love and appreciation of music in my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Besides studying and learning repertoire according to their level, my beginner students receive training in music theory, sight-reading, and technique.My intermediate and advanced students will focus on repertoire, sight-reading and techniqueI teach all of my students how to maximize their practice time.  I teach them methods and strategies on how to approach challenging spots. I teach my students to analyze the music and find patterns that will facilitate the learning of the repertoire and increase their confidence and motivation. After 6 months of taking lessons regularly and practicing consistently, a beginner student  should be able to play simple pieces using notes within the staffs, including whole-, half-, quarter-,and eighth-notes. Students will have a good hand posture, good finger coordination, and a basic understanding of dynamics.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students need an electronic piano or an acoustic piano

*** Specialties ***
I have used mostly Alfred's methods for the first couple of years. After that i used a combination of different resources for technique, repertoire, and theory. It has always been my goal to commit to my students and to create the best possible learning environment according to their needs, goals, and backgrounds. I carefully select repertoire and technical exercises that suit the needs of my students. I am comfortable with teaching both conventional classical and popular repertoire.

David is really fantastic! He has a lot of experience, training, and wisdom in the best ways to use your voice to its fullest potential. I have been a musician and vocalist for about 30 years now and I currently lead a 7 piece worship team at a local church. My confidence for vocal performances has dramatically increased since my lessons with David and I really enjoy singing more than ever before. I would often be limited in the amount of time I could dedicate to practices and/or performances before my voice would start to wear out. Now the rest of my body will get tired way before my voice ever does. Recently after 4 hours of heavy practice with my worship team in preparation for a performance, my voice was still very strong but the rest of me was absolutely exhausted. David is great! He has a wonderful personality, is very easy to learn from and he is extremely skilled in communicating criticism, so that you want to continually improve. I highly recommend him to anyone - at any level (from beginner to expert). He will not let you down.

I have 7 years of vocal training, directed choirs for 11 years, and have taught voice for 4 years.

David is my vocal coach and has trained me to techniques that I have never been taught. He has greatly expanded my range and has allowed my voice to rehearse for hours without strain.

He teaches not only with words, but with visual illustrations.

I highly recommend David's skills for beginners to advanced soloist, as well as a Vocal Coach to accomplished singers.

Cathy S.

Burbank, IL

About Cathy

Hello! My name is Cathy, or as most people call me by my nickname, Kasia. I am a student at Depaul University and am currently studying Music Composition along with piano and harp. I have been teaching piano for over 5 years now. I enjoy teaching kids the art of music because it is what makes up everything we have in this world. I teach piano technique along with the art of piano performance and music theory for my students to understand what music is and what it is made up of. I make sure they understand what they are playing in order to understand the art itself. I am a very motivated and in
spired person and the great connection that I make with my students is that I inspire them and they inspire me. I open their minds towards creativity and discipline. I have been playing the piano for over 13 years now, I am also a classical harpist and I have my own musical duet called Magical Keys.
I teach the way my students are most comfortable with and I teach what fits their personality.

Cathy was more than exceptional teaching piano to my son. She communicates well with times to teach and has a lot of knowledge to pass on to her students. My son could play nearly an entire piece after a few lessons. We could not ask for a better teacher!
