Alysia R.

Glenview, IL

I mainly focus on teaching the Classical repertoire. However, I truly love teaching students music that belong to other genres as well, such as film music, pop music, jazz music, rock music, and video game music. I believe students should love the music they play and I feel that students should pursue learning pieces that they feel passionate about.

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 i
s 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 student is a unique individual with different learning preferences, goals, musical tastes, and body mechanics. In contrast to the "cookie-cutter" teaching method (a uniform teaching method utilized for every student), with each student, I design an individualized lesson plan that not only accommodates the student's needs, but also nurtures their overall appreciation of music.

I do not demand perfection from my students, but I do expect students to at least put in the effort to learn. I truly want to teach students how to play the piano or flute and I want to encourage students to find joy in making music. The methods I typically utilize include: (PIANO) Faber & Faber Piano Adventures, John Thompson Piano Course, Bastien's Piano Literature, Suzuki Piano (FLUTE) Suzuki Flute, Standard of Excellence book 1, Andersen etudes for flute.

Throughout my piano and flute career, I have competed in numerous music competitions and prepared for several music auditions. If you wish to have your child enter in competitions or prepare for any music auditions, I would be more than happy to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Glenview Location: I have a Boston baby grand piano, a flute, a metronome, and sheet music (piano & flute repertoire).

Evanston Location: I have a Yamaha Keyboard (equipped with weighted keys, all 88 keys, pedal, and a built-in metronome) and my flute.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students MUST have a piano or at least a working keyboard (for piano lessons). For flute, students MUST have a functional flute and a music stand. For the first lesson I can decide what music is needed and the student can then go out and purchase that music. Students should also have a working metronome.

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy teaching all styles and genres of music. I enjoy traditional western art genres, but I can also teach pop music, show tunes, as well as video game music.

I am a complete beginner. She is articulate; covered the basics so that I could practice and make progress even in this first week. She is pleasant, and yet, she is serious about music and making this successful. I liked her very much.

Amy D.

Crystal Lake, IL

Piano has been my primary instrument since the age of 7. Typically I use Faber or Alfred curriculum as it promotes strong note reading abilities in both left and right hands and teaches good basic theory along the way. I also always include 'fun' songs too and tailor learning to each students interests and abilities. I have taken many students from not knowing a thing about piano to being able to sit down and read and play a complicated piece of music well.

About Amy

For over 10 years Amy has dedicated her time to offering full-service music lessons to both beginner and advanced students of all ages. She provides a complete lesson program where students learn every aspect of music including: history, theory, composition and technique in playing skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
Ms. Amy utilizes a variety of curriculum based on each students abilities, interests and learning styles. Alfred, Faber and Schaum are the most popular and are integrated with a variety of unique books and music tailored to each student. After 6 months, beginner students will have a
working knowledge of reading staff music, scales and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland . Fender . Epiphone

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring books that the student would reimburse me for. I can bring my own metronome and some supplemental books if needed. Student must have their own piano or guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Classical music and fundamentals.

I heard of Amy when I was in school, looking for a way to get better at my music. She teaches piano, voice and guitar - I was really looking for help in piano. Her teaching skills are awesome! She understands music theory incredibly well, and has clear-cut teaching methods that help you grasp concepts and make feel smarter than you are! I really do recommend her if you are looking for beginning or advanced teaching. She will take you far.

About Charis

I have a B.S. in Music Education. I have worked with several disabled students patiently guiding them, finding creative ways to make music accessible to them. I believe it is not about me or the parent, but the student. I work with children of all ages believing that we can find a way that works so that in a few months you see results. Anyone can learn to sing or play but not everyone is going to enjoy it without the right approach and teacher. I don't want to hear a student say that the teacher didn't listen to me, they wouldn't entertain my ideas.
In my studio I have two piano's and
a keyboard. We have monitors and microphones and the ability to record. I encourage the composer to the pop music player, from the classical artist to the Broadway singer.
Currently, I have several students that compose their own music, helping one of those students to become a copyrighted artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
For the child I have had the most success with the Bastien method and for the Adult pianist I usually use Alfred's method books. I constantly have access to musicnotes.com to download any current or older hit in addition to the method books. I want you to learn to note read and then to play by chords. I never want the student to lose their creative, artistic ability. They should feel welcome at all times to add input to the lesson. I want you to have fun learning and find the ability in you to make music. Please contact Takelessons if a time does not suit your availability. I may be able to work something out.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Her own private music studio w/ piano, seating for parents. I have vocal equipment, microphones and monitors

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will have a music bingo game with me and whatever else is needed to supplement the lesson

*** Specialties ***
I teach any style and method that is needed. I teach note reading and playing classical music to playing by chords and learning how to split the voicing

Teresa L.

Ingleside, IL

Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes.
The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself.
I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential.
The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.

About Teresa

I am a graduate of Northern IL University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I have 22 years of teaching experience where I have traveled to the homes. Students enjoy my passion that I have with the instrument.

I started teaching in 1991 and have been teaching several students since then. Attending teacher workshops keep me at a current updated level and I want to help the students learn to the best of their potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very thorough in my teaching, which includes lesson, theory, technique, and performance
methods. I use a very easy, flexible
approach when it comes to the kids and their personalities. I expect a lot out of my students, yet still want them to learn and have fun.
After three months with me, they will have learned how my teaching style is and will be able to play several children's songs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I don't provide any equipment when I travel except their books for the first lesson. I would expect the student to have a well tuned piano or a basic keyboard. The student also needs a notebook so I can write their homework down for them as well as myself to keep track of where the student is in their progress.[

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching Alfred, Bastien, and Faber and Faber. I teach General Music, Classical, Jazz, and Popular. I teach mainly through the method books, and then use other supplementary materials as well..

I have been taking lessons for about 4 weeks now and am thoroughly enjoying the experience with Terri. She listens to where I am, and while she is patient, challenging and encouraging, she also takes into account my schedule and my current life circumstances. As things get more challenging, we take our time, because that's what my life needs. As an adult student, I have a fairly busy life with work and other interests outside my music lessons. I appreciate Terri's flexibility with my pace, and her understanding with regard to each client as an individual with individual needs.

Voytek F.

Rolling Meadows, IL

Learn to play the piano one step at a time using the Piano Adventures book series for kids, and Adult Piano Adventures for adults.

About Voytek

Hi, my name is Voytek and I love music! I currently do over 200 shows a year and in addition to performing as a soloist, I play in 2 gigging ensembles. Thanks to music, I've been able to meet many incredible people and travel all over the world to Germany, New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and the Dominican Republic. My goal is to inspire my students and share with them my passion for music so they can also experience how wonderful and rewarding it really is. Let's rock some jams!

*** Lesson Details ***
While teaching lessons, I like to keep the atmosphere relaxed but productive. I
utilize many proven traditional teaching techniques (for example: scales, theory, exercises, drills and prepared pieces) however, I also try to keep things fresh with fun backing tracks and music theory games to keep students engaged. I am also very flexible and open to suggestions, so I encourage students to ask questions and let me know if they want to learn a specific song or musical concept.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is equipped with a 76-key keyboard, drum set, music stands, recording equipment and a PA system. Plenty of parking available, either in the driveway or on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
In order to teach at a student's home I will need a quiet room/area where we can concentrate on our studies. If the student is taking drum or piano lessons, they will need a drum kit or piano/keyboard. Also, a boombox/CD player may be necessary if we need to play with some backing tracks.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet - Jazz & Classical

Drums - Everything from Jazz to Rock, Waltz, Cha-Cha, Metal etc.

Singing - All Pop music, old (Frank Sinatra era) and new (The Temptations) and newest (artists of today).

Audio Recording & Production - All styles, such as Rock, Pop,
Cinematic, Hip-Hop, Country etc.

Piano - Beginning piano, building a solid foundation.

Music Theory - I can answer questions and teach the concepts.

Having trouble with your band/choir part? Preparing for an audition and want to get first chair? I can help!

Voytek is a great teacher. I started with little knowledge of anything regarding the piano or reading music and Voytek was able to help me through the process to the point where I fell very confident in my skills. I have learned a lot from him in a small amount of time and I am very grateful for that.

He is also very accommodating and flexible when it comes to making appointment times and rescheduling appointments. Great guy and great teacher.
