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.

I hadn't played the trumpet in 30 years. My first lesson with Nicholas was like starting from scratch. He is very knowledgeable, polite, professional, and definitely patient. I feel that that homework Nicholas assigned was spot on. I'm playing better already after only two days. I would certainly recommend him to a friend.

Nicholas really tailored the lessons to what I needed. They weren't cookie-cutter lessons, and I appreciated that. He answered all the questions I had, and helped me understand some concepts that I never would have gotten just learning online. I definitely recommend him as a teacher.

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.

Cheryl S.

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

I hold bachelors and masters degrees in music education as well as a California Music Teacher Credential and an Illinois Professional Educator License in Music. I've been teaching music lessons for 16 years and my students have gone on to perform solos, in ensembles, and throughout the community. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to perform "Hot Cross Buns" and as time goes on you'll be able to perform classical and popular music. I love working with students of all ages, and I can't wait to meet you!

For parents of very young children, I use the Music for Little Mozarts method book, which is perfect for ages 3-6. My 2 year old daughter also uses it with success. She, along with my older students and their parents, love how this book uses stories and memorable characters to teach young ones how to play piano. If you have a young child interested in getting started, please contact me through the "Ask a Question" feature so I can get to know your family better, and ...

Paul M.

Oak Forest, IL

Students will learn basic piano skills such as hand placement, note reading, note values, pedal use, major and minor scales, expressions, etudes, pieces, memory work, music history, performance techniques, and most of all to have fun learning the piano. I will expect students to have a minimum 67 note keyboard with sustain pedal, or a good piano to use for personal practice time. Each student should spend at least 20-30 minutes daily to start. They must purchase the recommended books.

About Paul

I have my bachelors degree in sacred music, my masters degree in music performance, and my doctorate in worship studies. I am an experienced music teacher with great interpersonal skills and enjoy creating a fun and meaningful learning environment for all ages of students. I teach music theory concepts as I teach music, and I also enjoy sharing the history of music and famous composers. Students should not just learn notes, but they should also learn about the wonderful story of music I have taught private clarinet, flute, saxophone, voice, and piano lessons for many years with great success.
Many of my former students write to me periodically to tell me what they are doing in music. I look forward to working with many more students as we embark on the journey of learning music, pieces, history, and theory together. Students will look back and say they really enjoyed their lessons with me.

Paul is strong in both the technical and subjective areas of music. He understands the elements that make up both categories and how to balance these elements for a great performance. Paul takes a strong interest in each student he has. He likes to understand why they enjoy music and build on that. Paul likes for his students to be educated in all facets of music, not just how to play a particular instrument. Paul loves people and music. I could not recommend a better teacher.

The first half of the lesson will consist of basic music instruction, such as note-reading, rhythm-counting, music theory and technique.
