I have a true love for teaching. My compassionate and inspiring approach makes each student feel special, cared for, and successful. I am a trustworthy educator with exceptional communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills. These traits enable him to cultivate strong relationships with parents and students. I have a talent for connecting with my students and custom tailoring their lessons to meet their diverse needs. Irwin utilizes his educational and performance experience to teach students of all levels. He founded the Silbernik Music Academy, located in Highland Park, IL, in 2014.
About Irwin S.

I am a dedicated, talented and enthusiastic music instructor. I love sharing my knowledge on the joys of making music with my students. I teach because I want to teach. Not because I have to teach. The disciplines that I have acquired through my music have helped me in all areas of my life, and I love the idea that I can share some of those lessons with other people. I love seeing a child's eyes light up the first time they play a song or grasp a concept. I enjoy working with adults whose life long ambition has been to learn to play an instrument, and have finally found the time for their studies.

Experience
Guitar, Piano & Ukulele Instructor
Jan 2014 - Present
Silbernik Music Academy
I majored in piano and instrumental music education at DePaul University and the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. While studying at De Paul University, I played Timpani for the De Paul University Symphony Orchestra, which regularly performed in Chicago's Orchestra Hall. I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Illinois in 1974 and my Master's degree in Music Education a year later, in 1975. I taught instrumental music (band & orchestra) in the Champaign/Urbana school systems while working on my Master's degree. After receiving my degrees, I ran the music programs for a small town in western Illinois. This included band, orchestra, chorus, general music and private instrument lessons. After teaching in public school systems, I went to work at Karnes Music Company in Des Plaines, Illinois as a guitar and piano instructor. In addition to my teaching experience, I have years of experience playing in various venues in the Chicago area. In 2014, I founded the Silbernik Music Academy in Highland Park, IL., and am now using my educational and performance experience to teach students of all levels.
