Great first lesson! My son was very comfortable and excited to keep going.
Natalie
Lydia was very welcoming and kind, and put me at ease during our first lesson. She knew I wanted to work on mallet percussion, and had a lesson plan ready for me on the marimba. She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!
Mike
Lydia's teaching style is fantastic! As an older learner, she was very patient and understanding with me while still helping me reach my goals. She taught me many different ways of playing and different styles. It is a pleasure to be taught by such a remarkable percussionist!

This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.
Dan G.
I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

Healthy singing is a multifaceted endeavor. It requires synergistic engagement not only between the vocal folds and vocal tract but also between the entirety of the body and the perceptive mind, regardless of genre or style. My teaching addresses and fuses each component of this pivotal trio comprising mind, body, and voice. The result will allow your instrument to find a newfound freedom of expression, progressively giving you the increased power and the agility to emote in a multitude of styles across the vocal spectrum.

Recognizing singing as a deeply individual experience, I am a fervent advocate of student empowerment. My job is to bestow you and guide you with the fundamental technical tools that you can then use to earn the gratification of becoming your own best teacher for whatever you desire to sing. Although I specialize in classical technique and employ it as a foundational anchor, my holistic approach is adaptable across the range of age, level, and style and can be ...

I’ve really enjoyed working with Max, and have often picked his brain because I know his knowledge of the voice is so valuable. He’s a vulnerable and wonderful performer and a personable teacher who goes out of his way to keep learning- I think that makes him the best teacher! I recommend him to anyone who has a chance to be his student or work with him.
Stephanie Pfundt
Max is an absolute pleasure to work with and a front running professional in the voice pedagogy industry. His sensitivities from everything diction to vocal mechanics and body/mind awareness in singing helped me think of my voice in a whole new way. I have never met a voice teacher so able to communicate technical advice in plain speech. Each lesson I had firm take aways and felt I dramatically improved in the space of a month. Thanks Max!!
Jeannette Lee
Max is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable vocal science pedagogues I know. As his colleague, I know his students will benefit from his detailed explanation in mastering a comprehensive understanding of the human voice. He is dedicated to his craft as a musician and as a teacher and I highly recommend him!

Concertina:
A free-reed musical instrument, like the various accordions and the harmonica. It has a bellows, and buttons typically on both ends of it. When pressed, the buttons travel in the same direction as the bellows, unlike accordion buttons, which travel perpendicularly to the bellows. Always starting with basics the student will learn how to hold the instrument, notes, chords, reading, and playing songs.

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Karen was great!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Go at your own pace and have fun are my knitting mottos! I teach continental style knitting and have been teaching beginners to knit for over 5 years. Together we'll experience the excitement that comes when you cast on something new, learn a new stich, or finish a favorite project.

I'm can start with the basics (cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch) or jump straight into helping on a project you have planned (or started and got stuck on? don't worry - it happens to all of us!). There is no limit to the kind or number of projects we can do. I have plenty of project ideas and am always happy to help with your ideas, too.

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 11 years old, and after taking a few years off I picked up the hobby again in my 20s. Now in my 30s I am an avid knitter - there are always several projects on my needles (I need one I can travel with, one I can do while watching TV, and usually one I'm ma

Ok - this was incredible. I go in with a really wonky purl stitch and she was able to recognize what I was doing wrong! I thought I was knitting/purling continental style and she noticed it wasn't that at all - but Norwegian knitting/purling and got me on the right track. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, I have been to two other in person instructors with little success and she was able to fix my problem over zoom!

Nicole is just wonderful. I could not ask for a better knitting teacher!!!

"I took voice lessons from Mary Ann at Groovin' On Music from 2007-2009, and they were worth every penny. I was a background singer in a worship team at church and I was shy to sing lead because I didn't know how to sing vibrato or navigate the falsetto break in my range. I had always wanted to take lessons as a kid but never was able to until adulthood. I was a bit nervous when I first came in, but Mary Ann put me at ease. She is a beautiful spirit who inspired me, challenged me, and made me laugh. She is not only amazingly talented and experienced, but she genuinely loves people and makes the lessons an enjoyable experience. Mary Ann definitely took my voice to the next level. Many people have commented on the difference in my voice and my confidence level before and after the lessons. I now sing lead, am at home with my vibrato and know how to use all the notes in my range. I would absolutely recommend Mary Ann as a voice coach for people of all ages!"

"Meghan is an absolute gem and I hope I get to work with her again someday. I was only able to afford 5 lessons but I've learned so much more in those few sessions than I have with any of my previous instructors. I'm painfully self-conscious when it comes to singing, but she was very encouraging and patient. She takes time to explain all the exercises she gives, ensuring that I'm able to understand how they would help in improving my voice. Highly recommend her to anyone who loves to sing, but might be shy like myself!"

Play-Along Strategies for Drum Techniques

Playing along with songs can be an effective learning technique, especially for drummers.  With the background music in place, you can then practice different drumming styles, as well as practice staying in tempo, if that's something you're struggling with.  Here is a recommendation from Jeff F., one of our Chicago drum teachers: As a working musician and teacher I have found playing along with recordings to be a valuable learning tool.  Doing this enables you to really get inside …
