About Arielle-Khrystiana
I began my musical studies at the age of six, starting off in my elementary school orchestra and chorus. A passion and talent for the violin led me to placing in competitions and festivals, and performing professionally in quartets and at wedding ceremonies later in high school. I began performing in rock 'n' roll bands in 2008, and began a teaching career in 2009. My students and students' parents have praised me for my musicianship, patience, and compassion. I am also an operatic soprano and musical theater musician, thus making me a diverse and well-rounded instructor. I teach in the traditional style, combining some Suzuki elements. For beginning voice lessons, we will focus on vocalizes, theory, and appropriate repertoire. I take a different approach to every student, realizing that not everyone learns the same, and that what may wo
rk for one student will not work for another. I am dedicated to assisting the musicians of the future. I firmly believe that being performer assists me in my teaching, because I can give my students the benefit of my performance knowledge and experience, preparing them not only for school concerts and NYSSMA festivals, but also other arenas, such as performing with rock musicians or in theater pits to earn extra cash after high school. I enjoy working with all ages, 3-83. I'm excited to meet you and assist you with the adventure that is learning classical violin! My students have also been recipients of several scholarships and awards.

*** Lesson Details ***
A combination of traditional and Suzuki techniques. Each lesson is uniquely tailored to fit the student's personal/musical goals, learning style, and skill level. Voice lessons will focus on healthy vocalism, beginning theory training, and sight-reading skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Many books on music history and theory, electric piano, clean, friendly atmosphere that is perfect for making music in!

*** Specialties ***
Classical violin, classical voice, basic theory. Early childhood, opera, viola, basic piano.

About Charles
I have my bachelors of music from Eastern Oregon University, and my masters in music performance from University at Buffalo. Over the past 8 years, I've taught all ages ranging from 8-50. I've played styles ranging from surf punk, rock, funk, classic rock, heavy metal, and pit orchestra, symphonic orchestra, percussion ensemble, and chamber ensembles. Whatever it is you wanna learn on the drums, I'll teach you. Wanna learn double bass? Awesome! Wanna learn a paradiddle? Great! I'll get you the skills you need to excel, and we'll even have fun doing it. Looking forward to meeting you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a pretty laid back person, so a lot depends on how much effort you put into it. There's a couple different things we'll do for the first lesson. If you're new to this, I'll start you out learning basic stick grip and pos
ture, and we'll get you sitting behind a kit. If you have some experience, I'd like to hear what you can do before we decide where to go from there. Your participation in your lessons in paramount. Bring songs to learn, ask questions, get EXCITED about playing. I'm here to facilitate your needs, so if you don't ask questions and get involved in your education, I can only do so much.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Drum set, practice pads, and P.A. equipment

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a snare drum and a djembe, anything else, I would need the student to provide, percussion instruments are large and hard to move.

*** Specialties ***
I have my masters in music performance in percussion. I can teach and am proficient in all percussion instruments, whether it be instruction in concert snare, marimba, djembe, or timpani. Where my area of expertise and passion lies is drumset. I love drumset, and I love teaching it.

Antonella is an AMAZING teacher. I am an older adult student, with no music theory or background. She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation.

Our experience with Antonella has been wonderful. She has high standards but is also extremely patient with young students. My daughter has learned beautiful technique but more importantly, she has expanded her mind, improved her sense of discipline and commitment and learned to play piano with a feel for the music. Working with Antonella is fantastic for the student and their parent/guardian. It's a joint effort. I highly recommend Antonella

About Laura
Welcome to my studio!

I love getting to know all of my students and helping them achieve their goals. One of my favorite things about teaching is that I can meet musicians (that's you!) at all different levels and with varying interests. Whether you want to learn to sing pop, broadway, classical or just learn a tune on the piano, I am here to help!

I have been teaching for over 14 years. I have taught private lessons, group voice classes, beginning and intermediate piano, beginning music theory, and acting. I have taught in my own private studio as well as at the collegiate level. As your teacher, I will do my best to make sure your learning process is fun and that you feel comfortable. If you are nervous to try singing or piano, don't worry! I have dealt with stage fright myself and love helping my students out with nerves.

I am so proud of the many successes my students have had - from preparing auditions for college music programs (and getting accepted!) to going out for roles in their school musical or choir, or working on a community audition. I have helped my singers gain the confidence to sing at an open mic night, or perform a solo at their local church.

Whatever your goals are, I am here to help you grow and to learn to sing and/or play in a way that is HEALTHY and will help you keep making music life long.

About Daniel
I teach piano, composition, music theory, and ear training to students at every level of musical experience (including those who cannot read music). To date I have taught over 100 music students in private, online and classroom settings.

My biggest priority in teaching is to help you reach your specific goals and address your needs! Every student has their own objectives and learns at their own pace, and my job is to ensure that you get exactly what you want out of the lessons. Whether you’re looking to master piano basics, learn your favorite songs or pieces, write your own music, prepare for a theory exam, strengthen your theory skills, or improve your ear, I can help you achieve your goals!

I am available for both in-person and online teaching. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

-Subjects-

Beginne
r Piano - I have privately instructed over 30 students in beginner-level piano skills. I can help you master the basics of the instrument, acquire a basic technique, and learn how to read music if necessary. Once the fundamentals are in place, we can cover piano repertoire from a wide variety of styles (jazz, classical, rock, pop, international, etc.), and maybe even learn some of your favorite music and pieces! If you wish, I can supplement lessons with music theory.

Composition and Arrangement - To date I have helped my students write over 20 compositions of widely varying styles and characters. I can help you perfect the art of writing melody, harmony, accompaniment, counterpoint, forms, lyrics, songs, orchestration, or film music! I will provide feedback on your work, as well as instructive musical examples from the past.

Music Theory - I I have taught music theory for 4 years to over 50 students. I can teach you everything from music theory fundamentals (key signatures, scales, major/minor chords, chord analysis) to some of the most advanced topics in undergraduate and graduate musical studies (form, part-writing, counterpoint, advanced harmonic analysis, Schenkerian analysis).

Ear Training - I have taught ear training for 3 years to over 50 students. I am very experienced in assisting students in recognizing and notating everything from single notes and chords to complex passages of music. I have many useful learning materials and know effective methods for achieving aural recognition.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, please do not hesitate to contact me!

* Please message me before purchasing a lesson package to ensure we are a good fit! Thank you :-) *

Hello, I'm Mallory! I have been studying Violin for 11 years, and have played piano for 12.

In May 2017 I graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, where I earned a bachelor's degree in Classical Violin Performance. During my time at Roosevelt I gained additional experience playing Jazz, Contemporary, pop, and Improvisational musics (to name a few).
I have had 6 years of formal piano training over the course of my life, through both private instruction and college courses. Ask me more about music theory, jazz theory, improvisation, writing, arranging or anything else you might be interested in!

Over the past decade of my musical career I have taught private and group lessons on both violin and
piano, and have coached elementary and middle school chamber ensembles. Currently, I spend my days:
-teaching private lessons at two studios in Chicago
-teaching before and after school group lessons at CPS
-teaching students of my own private studio--in their homes or online.
-performing at local venues and collaborating with artists near and far.
-traveling for tours, gigs, workshops, lessons, and other academic or artistic endeavors.
-as a session musician for studio recordings.

Overall, I absolutely love what I do--playing music, writing music, and teaching--and I especially look forward to working with you!
