Ear Training was a huge part of my college experience. As a Jazz musician, being able to hear the musical context of your surroundings and adapt to them is hugely important. My methods include fun and challenging ways of memorizing pitch relationships that don't necessarily require an in depth knowledge of pitches.

Charles Stewart is a very personable instructor. This first lesson was very well - paced. He explained everything in detail and he gave me enough practise in the lesson so that I know what to do, on my own, during the week.
Gloria D.
Great teacher. Very patient and observant. He tells you where your strengths and weaknesses are and develops a plan to assist you in overcoming your weaknesses. My left hand is weak but the more I practice on the assignments the more I become confident in my success.

My son’s first lesson went really well! Mr. Charles was really accommodating - as we were running late and he patiently waited and completed our full first session. My son is already looking to his next lesson.

David A.

Book Now

David was an in-demand freelance drummer and educator in Chicago for 10 years before moving to the DMV to play drums for the US Navy Band Sea Chanters. His diverse background and wide-ranging influences shaped him into a versatile musician; David showcases that versatility in the private lesson environment and gives his students a truly unique musical experience.

David is 100% committed to his students' success. He centers his lessons on fundamentals and essential musical vocabulary while blending the student's personal musical goals. "Exercises" are rarely used; David leans on tangible, real-life examples of vocabulary that transcend genre. He is also a firm believer that improvisation is the key to musical mastery.

David will set the bar high for his students, but the beauty of setting realistic goals keeps students engaged, focused, and loving practice!

About David

Chicago expat; United States Navy Band drummer; David has developed a reputation for his professionalism and versatility as a musician. Moving to Chicago was the catalyst for David’s musical career. The diverse and robust Chicago music scene helped mold him into a first-call sideman over the

Kyle has helped me to learn how to read music. From coming from a school where I wasn't taught how to do this, he helped me learn to do so and be on top of my class!

Kyle helped me to excel as the drummer I am today! I would not be nearly as talented as I am without his guidance, support, and positive feedback.

"After only two sessions I am so glad to have found Jessica. She is patient, observant, helpful and so encouraging. I was unsure how online cello lessons would work but this is the ideal format for me. Jessica is able to observe form and offer gentle suggestions how as well as instruction on sound. I wish I was able to take the lessons in person with Jessica because there are a couple limitations to Skype (such as a slight lag and inability to have seamless dialogue or duets) but Jessica obviously knows how to deal with these technical problems. I highly recommend Jessica and am sure that with her help even an old, slow returning cellist will soon be enjoying playing complex music. Finally, Jessica has been very flexible with my crazy schedule lately. An awesome person and great instructor."
