Eric M.

Villa Park, IL

I love to play the trumpet. I play it in shows almost every day and love the way that Jazz sounds coming through a horn!

About Eric

I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined!

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a laid back atmosphere that is v
ery productive. I use a custom curriculum that is catered to the needs and desires of the individual. Whether you would like to be a concert pianist, a jazzy horn player, or someone who wants to rock out to your favorite tunes, I have resources and experience to help you reach your goal. After three months you can expect to competently play a couple great songs and have greater fluidity and technique on your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a recording studio which includes music stands, keyboards, piano, amps, acoustic guitar, and seating available. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need the instrument of their study and their purchased study materials. If the student is taking piano, they will need an 88 key weighted keyboard or a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, but can teach classical, pop, rock, funk, blues, salsa, bossa nova etc.

Eric was just the person we were looking for to help my 13 yr old son to get started again with lessons. He connected with my son. They also connected because my son is an athlete and Eric can relate because of his background.

Caleb M.

Chicago, IL

I've been playing trumpet for 18 years, and I'm anxious to pass along my love for the instrument to others of all ages! I teach a variety of styles with my experience performing many kinds of music from classical to hip-hop. Whatever your interests I can get you playing with a healthy approach to brass playing and solid fundamentals!

About Caleb

Caleb moved from his hometown of Wichita, Kansas, to Chicago in 2008 to attend DePaul University, where he received his Bachelor’s in Trumpet Performance studying under Matt Lee and Tage Larsen. Since then, Caleb has picked up a variety of regular gigs across a wide spectrum of styles, genres, and types of events.

Caleb performs in Chicago with soul-pop band The Right Now, the progressive Pocket Radio, the soulful Bassel and the Supernaturals, the genre-defying Willy Dynomite, the Latin-grooved Contrabanda, and funk outfit Nasty Snacks. He has played in horn sections for Latin, funk, and bi
g-band jazz bands, as well as Afrobeat, indie rock, R&B/soul, and hip-hop/rap groups.

He has also played principal trumpet in symphony orchestras, pit orchestras and in the DePaul Screamin’ Demons Pep Band at Madison Square Garden. Caleb also regularly lends his solo talents to wedding parties and church services, and is one-fourth of the Chicago for-hire horn section Revolution Horns. Other musical endeavors include playing at Chicago Blackhawks games, a performance on the Steve Harvey Show, playing trumpet for the Broadway musical I Love Lucy in downtown Chicago, and a coveted chance to perform in master classes for his idols Adolph “Bud” Herseth and Chris Martin.

Caleb has been teaching privately in the Chicago area for a little over three years and is eager to teach students with any amount of experience, especially those who are eager to approach music from a variety of perspectives.

Caleb taught our 11 year old son for over a year. He connected well with him and was fun and encouraging yet firm and effective as a teacher. We would recommend Caleb to teach your aspiring trumpet player--you will be pleased with the results!

Caleb is an amazing trumpet specialist and a wonderful wonderful trumpet teacher. My son who is now 12 started taking private lessons with Caleb in Dec 2014 as a complete beginner. He has progressed so much in a little over a year that he is the best trumpetor in his middle school. And he may be performing in a jazz band with high schoolers this fall. This is greatly because of Caleb. He is incredible with children and teens. He is patient, fun, and firm. We are so glad we found him.

Nicholas K.

Merrillville, IN

My mission, is to create a private and educational environment to students of all ages. One that enriches their senses to music, through reading, writing, ear training, performance and technique.

About Nicholas

Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends. He enjoys playing lots of Motown, funk, and jazz, but is proficient in Classical, Rock, and Blues as well. When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children.
Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of music and theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
I set an individual curriculum based on students needs, wants and aspirations. We will focus on proper technique, theory, musicianship and sightreading to become a better all around musician. After a few months of lessons, you will have the proper fundamentals to grow as a musician and discover the art of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All necessities on site.

*** Specialties ***
I am well versed in many styles, I have played professionally and teach, ALL forms of Rock, Jazz, Blues, World (ethnic musics), Pop, Acoustic, Folk, and most other styles.

Nicholas was very patient, took the time to write down information that was helpful (very helpful). Nicholas understood where I was in reference to me knowing nothing about the guitar and he is very knowledgeable with the music trade. He was very clear and kept things simple. I truly enjoy his instructions, can't wait for the next lesson.

Nicholas is very accommodating to a student like me. While I have some background in piano, I'm lacking in key areas. Nicholas is able to tailor his lessons to my lopsided needs. He's also a great guy!

Kellyann W.

Bolingbrook, IL

The beginning trumpet student will learn posture, embouchure, breathing, and other techniques, along with playing enjoyable repertoire.

About Kellyann

From a young age, I was enamored with music and blessed to have parents who encouraged this passion by providing me with a variety of lessons. It is a privilege to pass on this love of music through lessons to a new generation of learners!

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Music Education and Sacred Music with emphases in piano and voice from Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, IA, and have taken several graduate level professional development courses that have enhanced my abilities as a musician and teacher.

Throughout my high school and college careers, I was involved in many mus
ical groups, so I know the challenges that accompany the pursuit of excellence and a full schedule. This has given me an understanding of students' needs while maintaining high expectations.

I am a substitute teacher as well, currently working for Plainfield 202 and Valley View 365U, and I have connections with Indian Prairie 204. Because of this, I have completed background checks with the Will County and DuPage County Regional Offices of Education.

Along with teaching, I love using music at church and for fun at home with my husband, Tim. We also enjoy many other activities together like bike-riding, cooking, hiking, camping, and playing with our loveable goldendoodle Max (who stays outside or in a closed bedroom during lessons).

I moved to Bolingbrook in mid-2013 and thoroughly enjoy our friendly neighborhood just north of Independence Elementary School. I look forward to welcoming you to my in-home studio!

Kyle M.

Chicago, IL

I help my students improve their basic fundamentals, from playing posture to music reading. I teach a variety of styles of techniques using supplemental materials such as Getchell and Arban's books, as well as my own exercises. I believe that teachers should be strict about getting in the necessary practice time, but I'm also not afraid to crack a goofy joke every once in a while.

About Kyle

Growing up in a family of musicians, Kyle has been playing trumpet since before he was big enough to hold it on his own. Since he started teaching trumpet in 2011, he has taught kids of all ages and skill levels.

In 2014, Kyle received a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in Jazz Studies from Columbia College Chicago. There, he performed with the Columbia College Jazz Ensemble, as well as a number of other ensembles covering many genres including jazz, pop, hip-hop and R&B. He also had the honor of performing in concert with Christian McBride, Paula Cole, jazz legend Benny Gols
on and many more.

Currently, Kyle teaches trumpet (and beginning guitar) throughout Chicago and the southwest suburbs, and performs with groups of varying styles around town. He believes trumpet is a cool instrument for many reasons, and he is eager to help aspiring players of all ages learn how to play it well.

Kyle is a great instructor that notices my bad habits and fixes them. He is good at using excercises and warmups to build technique, and selecting pieces of music to apply those techniques. He also gives advice on how to practice and cares about whether or not I am improving.

My daughter is very easily distracted during her music lessons and Kyle somehow manages to keep her focused and on target. She is also a perfectionist and gets very upset when she doesn't do everything right the first time through. Kyle is very patient with her and encourages her to persevere. I don't think my daughter would have continued playing trumpet without the encouragement and enthusiasm Kyle has provided.
