About Anna
Professional, active musician will share the joy of playing music with the students. You can count on having fun, effective lessons, and real results fast!

I was born in Cracow, Poland. From an early age I had a deep interest in all types of music. I was encouraged by my parents and quickly developed a talent. I began my musical education at the age of seven studying piano. I studied at The Frederic Chopin Academy of music in Warsaw, Poland and then at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University where I received a Bachelor of Music Degree in French Horn performance. Later I received a Master of Music in French Horn Performance and post Master Certificate, both from the DePaul University. I am an active freelancing musician in the Chicago area. (Chamber Opera of Chicago, Northbrook Symphony Orchestra, Oak Park and Riv
er forest Orchestra, Skokie Symphony, Lira Ensemble, Highland Park).
I have been teaching piano, music theory and French horn in the Chicago area for five years. I enjoy working with both children and adults.
To broaden my knowledge about teaching I completed courses: Studio Teaching as a Career, Teaching Excellence, and Brass concepts at DePaul University.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will learn to play piano or horn in a pleasant atmosphere. Additionally they will learn elements of music theory so they can quickly start to play on their own. This will broaden their understanding of music and they will be able play pieces they like. I have method books and studies for any level of playing, but students are welcome to bring their own. I think anyone can learn to play and I can help to achieve this dream. I recommend the book by Daniel Coyle: The Talent Code. Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How.

*** Studio Equipment ***
DePaul University - regular pianos available rooms reserved
At Home Studio- Casio keyboard in living room, french horn,
seating for parents.
In case of horn students they would have to have their own mouthpiece and later on their own instrument. I have breathing equipment to help with playing as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My method of transportation would be CTA and walking :)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in fun and effective teaching. I teach piano, french horn, music theory, ear training. Music is fun and this is how I teach.

I loved Ms. Anna's enthusiasm and constructive criticism. I have been playing horn for 7 years, and this was my first lesson. I have a ways to go, but I loved how she was willing to help me and give me tips in ways that you wouldn't get in your typical band class. I am definitely looking forward to our lessons!! 10/10 recommend for anyone looking for lessons, whether it is your first or your 100th

Anna is a great teacher. We started off with 10 lessons to give our 11 year old son a head start as he was keen to switch from Trombone to French Horn. With Anna's help, he made it! French Horn is a difficult instrument to play compared to other brass woodwind instruments, and finding Anna to help our son has been really beneficial. We highly recommend Anna and we will be signing up for more lessons. In addition, to those who are considering Online lessons, they have been great. We have been using a good webcam (Logitech from Amazon) together with Skype and it has worked out. Thank you!

About Inés
I am from Spain. I have been in the states for the past three years. I love my language and I get very excited when people want to learn about it! I was a Aupair for two years for two different families. The kids where 4,6,11,12 and 14. One of my tasks as an Aupair was helping the kids with their homework and teach them Spanish.
I'm a positive and joyful person, very patient and respectful.
I love learning about cultures and places.

Ines is fantastic! She is obviously a native Spanish speaker. She is is a wonderful & nurturing teacher, too. I can tell my little boy likes her because he always wants to entertain her. Ines meets the challenge of his being easily distracted. She shares her language and culture with us all and engages our son in topics to keep his interest (not easy for a young boy). She is very humble in all her talents and education. Only through multiple lessons, we have learned of some of her accomplishments and she has so much to offer beyond the language instruction and as part of her language instruction. She is also aware of the nuances of the language as spoken in Latin America and Spain and when it comes up, she shares this with us as part of her lesson. She is amazing! She is also very punctual and courteous, sending reminders of the lesson in advance and has been accommodating when we have needed to reschedule. She always has great learning tools and strives to teach Spanish at the best level for her student's needs and interests. We are so glad we found Ines and so grateful! We cannot say enough about how wonderful she has been for us!

I have always been skeptical of taking a language class online, but Ines has made my experience incredible! She not only knows how to teach spanish, but is also able to adapt and create innovative lessons for students of all levels! I was so comfortable speaking in Spanish and learning the language. If you have to hire a Spanish teacher, this is the one to hire!

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

French Grammar Rules: How to Conjugate Common Irregular Verbs
Last week, French tutor Carol Beth L. treated us to a great lesson on conjugating regular verbs. This week, we look at conjugating common irregular French verbs... French grammar is full of irregularities and exceptions. They make sense when you understand the phonetic and grammatical in's and out's of the language, but can still be difficult to navigate – especially at the beginning. Covering every single irregular French verb out there, therefore, is a difficult task to tackle in just one b

15 Easy Ways to Practice Spanish Throughout the Day
Learning a new language shouldn't be limited to textbooks and coursework! Here, tutor Kaitlin W. shares her (easy) ideas for practicing Spanish throughout the day...    I don't come from a Spanish-speaking family, nor is my family from a country where Spanish is spoken. Yet every time I open my mouth to speak Spanish, I'm asked where I am from. I have a near-native accent that leaves little trace of my Anglo roots. I often make people guess what country I'm from, and I've heard
