Eric M.

Villa Park, IL

I played in school bands and picked up more theory in college.

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.

There is always something new to learn!

Great first lesson. We went over a lot of material and set goals for the next lesson. Corbin is clearly very knowledgeable about the saxophone and music theory. He provides clear instructions while allowing the student the benefit of discovery. I'm looking forward to future lessons.

Corbin is friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about both minute technical aspects of saxophone technique as well as general musicality. I was quite picky in trying to find a saxophone instructor as I already have a BA in Music and wanted someone to help hone my skills in preparation for graduate studies. And I'm happy to say that Corbin is a great teacher and really knows his stuff!

Best instructor! My son is 6 years old and is my very picky/difficult child. He looks so forward to Corbin coming and teaching him piano. Corbin is patient and knows when to reign my son in to pay attention and when to just let him experiment with music and have some freedom. I highly recommend him!

Darcy C.

Chicago, IL

Teaching private clarinet lessons was the way I discovered that I wanted to be a teacher. I began teaching private clarinet lessons to beginners while in high school, where I played with the Wind Symphony (top band) all four years under the direction of John Heath. I also played with the Philharmonic (top) Orchestra, and sat first chair in each during my senior year. I played solo clarinet for the DuPage Youth Symphony Orchestra, as well.

I have experience with IMEA auditions and music, and during my years of teaching, my students went on to place into IMEA honor bands, first division of solo and ensemble competitions, and private youth orchestras. I also have experience coaching students on audition pieces as well as solos for competitions, technique, and music theory.

I can provide recommendations on music stores, books, reeds, and more. Whether you want help with music for your band or orchestra, supplementary lessons to go beyond school music education, coaching on a solo, ...

About Darcy

Hi, there! My name is Darcy and I am a teaching artist in Chicago. I've been teaching and tutoring for nine years and I'm a graduate of Northwestern University. I love to get to know people, and I pride myself in being personable, adaptable to different learning styles, and an upbeat, positive person.

I teach in the city of Chicago and at some Evanston schools; unfortunately I am not able to travel beyond the reach of the CTA for lessons. Note: my listed availability begins September 1, 2015. Want to start sooner? Just let me know, we can figure out scheduling until then!

I teach a vari
ety of ages, levels, and subjects: I currently teach drama to kindergarteners and high school English classes, clarinet to middle school students, ballet and jazz to teenagers, and tap to adults older than I am. I consistently teach large classes and several one- or two- person private lessons. I invest a lot in my students and want to get to know each of them personally, whether they are five or 55.

A little about my background in the subjects I teach:

My life-long love of reading, writing and language prepared me to succeed academically and on standardized tests. I became a National Merit Scholar and then a cum laude graduate of Northwestern University. I've had several writing jobs and internships, and have published numerous articles and a long-term column. Experience matters when it comes to knowing how to draft creative content while maintaining impeccable grammar, style, and structure.

I grew up training seriously in dance, especially ballet and tap. I studied ballet, pointe, tap, modern and jazz on a scholarship at the School of Performing Arts in Naperville, IL, and performed with their award-winning performing and competing dance ensemble for seven years. I then completed the choreography program at Northwestern University, and served as Artistic Director of Tonik Tap ensemble.

I come from a musical family, and I played as the first chair clarinetist in my high school's band and orchestra as well as the solo clarinetist with the DuPage Youth Symphony. By studying privately and attending summer programs I was able to refine my technical abilities and musicianship, winning awards at solo competitions and performing in recitals. When I began performing professionally in Chicago musical theatre productions at age eleven, my musical background served me well as I began vocal training.

I'm lucky to now get to do what I love for a living and I hope to work with you in one of the subjects listed here!

With each of my students, we begin with a discussion about goals and expectations on both sides. I want to know what your goals are with lessons. Do you want to score in a certain range on a standardized test? Refine your technique in music or dance? Learn something new just for fun? I am happy to help you work toward whatever goals you have (and really, it should always be fun).

From me, you can expect commitment, flexibility, clear communication, and positivity. Feel free to ask for references if you'd like!

Paul M.

Oak Forest, IL

Students will be challenged as we use the Rose, Klose, Rode, Baermann, studies to begin, plus we will look at major composers such as Mozart, Weber, Beethoven, Rossini and their compositions or transcriptions. Solo as well as duet pieces will be covered, and also performing along with online resources as well.

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.

I've known Paul for several years and his talent is remarkable! On several occasions I've heard him play the piano and direct a choir while performing before a large crow. I've also heard him play piano and sing Christian Gospel in the comfort of his own living room. I would definitely recommend Paul to family and friends for private lessons of piano, as well as voice performance. His great talent coupled with his candid character makes Paul one of the best instructor's in suburban Chicago.
