Alysia R.

Glenview, IL

About Alysia

Having taught piano and flute lessons for over 12 years in the North Shore. I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages (3 - adult), both beginner and advanced. I enjoy teaching students the "classical music" repertoire. I also strive to give my students a solid foundation in music theory and history in order for them to truly understand and appreciate the roots and structure of the music. In addition, I want my students to really love playing music and so I strongly encourage my students to also learn to play music outside of the classical repertoire. I believe balance is key, so I generally teach students to play classical music as well as music from other genres (such as film music, pop music, video game music, holiday music etc). *** Lesson Details *** Each ...

Diego is a great teacher! I have been taking lessons from him for a while now and I have improved considerably. He is very clear with his teaching using the information learned through his information psychology. He explains why we must do something a certain way and this leads to a better understanding of flamenco and the guitar. He teaches not just guitar, but also how to practice. Diego is incredibly friendly and makes learning something so difficult manageable and fun!

Diego is a fantastic teacher and guitarist. He is generous and patient, encouraging and effective. Diego has the ability to simplify difficult technique and break it down in simple terms. His studies in Spain make him a rare and sought after teacher in Chicago. In short, Diego have given me the keys to succeed in this beautiful and challenging art form. I wholeheartedly recommend him!

My best music teacher ever!

We are so happy to have Kate as our violin teacher. She is a professional who has great approach towards kids and manages to find the best way to teach them how to love the instrument, play it as a true artist and show them how to enjoy music. Our daughter adores her and always goes to the lessons with desire and leaves with a big smile on her face. She quickly learned the basics and now loves playing the violin and keeps practicing every day without being reminded to do so.

Elizabeth is an artist at heart. She's very patient and kind. I highly recommend her!

I came to Elizabeth as an adult student with a few years of experience in playing, but with a lot of doubts about whether I could advance. I'd previously taken lessons at the Music Institute of Chicago (Evanston campus), but I didn't like how they did things over there. They are extremely overpriced for what they offer. In my first lesson there, my teacher wouldn't even let me pick up the bow and she made me play Twinkle Twinkle over and over again...

Elizabeth made playing very relaxing. Her approach is just to attack the material without any hesitations. And if you make a mistake, just do it again. She let me pick out the repertoire, which made me excited to play, and offered great recommendations on material that would help my playing. Sometimes I was too ambitious and she'd be the first to point out that maybe I wasn't ready for a piece just yet. Then she'd recommend something else that would help me get there.

Elizabeth teaches from her home and it's pretty easy to get to by train, bus, or car.

We love Ms. Brown!

Ms. Brown is professional and kind, which is a wonderful way to learn a new skill like playing the violin. My daughters were taught by her years ago as young children and then we lost track of her. When we found her on TakeLessons, we signed up, willing to drive miles for her instruction. She is thorough, clear in instruction and so even tempered. What a great teacher!

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?

Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick … Read More
