I am not your typical student. I am 45, and male. Im an acomplished guitar player and play in a band. I never had any real training for
Roz has helped me immensely. She is very knowledgeable in music and voice theory, and has very well thought out constructive criticism. She uses a lot of visualization techniques to help with body and breath control. She is patient and understanding and willing to talk through some theory issues, instead of just drilling lessons. Although most of her students are younger, she really thoughtfully catered her lesson to my needs, instead of just trying to apply the same approach to everyone. I would recommend her highly to anyone and will be sending my son for piano lessons!"

My 7 year old son has been taking lessons with Tom for the past four months and will continue for the foreseeable future. I am
Tom is an accomplished drummer with his own unique style and one of the cool things about him is that he is interested in getting to know my son to encourage and develop his own unique musical taste and style.
Tom frequently requests that my son provide favorite songs, and then teaches those beats and techniques. This is a unique quality which makes learning music instantly rewarding for a young person and ultimately provides a foundation that my son can have fun with, as he learns the more technical and mundane aspects of music that every serious student must work through.
Whether you or your child would like to be the next Buddy Rich, Lars Ulrich, Neil Pert or Questlove Jenkins, Tom will work with you or your child to develop both a familiar and meaningful learning program that builds knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm for the drums.
I have the highest regard for Tom and highly recommend him as a drum teacher."

He completed his Masters of Music in Piano Performance with a scholarship from Roosevelt University, Chicago, Il. Renowned Mexican pianist Jorge Federico Osorio and Dr. Ludmila Lazard were his advisers and professors. In addition, during his program at Roosevelt University, Jesus took a course aimed at developing figure base and harpsichord performance with Dr. David Schrader.
In 2012 he was certified piano Suzuki teacher by the Suzuki Association of the Americas.
Jesus performs solo recitals and lieder by Rachmaninoff, Shubert, and Schumann with his wife the soprano Darina Assenova in festivals such as “Shubertiade”, which is organized by Pianoforte Foundation in Chicago and Make Music Chicago.
He often performs in Cultural Festivals in Mexico and United States and has performed with major orchestras as a soloist and as accompanist.
All his piano students are active as performers. Jesus always encourages them to perform in public, looking for piano festivals, competitions, recitals, auditions and any opportunities where they can showcase their talent. His students have been accepted in pre-college music schools in Chicago.
*** Lesson Details ***
I focus on the basic piano technique skills when I start with a new student, it includes good posture of the body, good hand shape, firm fingertips, loose arm weight, good position of each finger, and flexible wrist. I always look for a rich tone production when playing each key of the keyboard in order to create a beautiful musical discourse throughout the piano piece.
When the student is from 3 to 6 years old I use the Suzuki method. When the student is older than 6 I combine the traditional and Suzuki method having great results with the student's performances.
My Philosophy: All my students learn to play piano in an artistry, confident, and joyful way.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in living room with upright piano, couches, bookshelves, etc. Parents can sit in on lessons.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide copies of some piano works. But I also expect my students to buy their own books and have their own instrument.
*** Specialties ***
For beginners, I use either the Faber or Thomson method. I can teach the Suzuki method too. I specialize in Classical music, but I can also teach pop music for piano.
