I just graduated from Columbia College Chicago in May 2014 with a BA in Music Composition. I studied under composers: Drew Baker, Kenn Kumpf, Ilya Levinson, and Marcos Balter. I've had performances and worked with members from the groups, Del Niente and Chicago's Composer's Collective.
I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 14 years. I have played in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock. I've been writing music for the same length of time. Song-writing, counterpoint, orchestrating, arranging, music theory, and composing are subjects I'm well versed in and would love to teach to other people. I'm experienced with all kinds of music software, such as: Pro Tools, Logic, Garage Band, Cubase, FL Studio, Finale, Sibelius. If you want to learn how to write, record, mix, and master your own music, there's never been a better time to learn.

Jeremie met with our daughter and took the time to learn her perspective and talent level and to develop a more individualized approach to working with her. He is incorporating music theory into songwriting. We are super pleased with his beginning work with her!

Jeremie was very friendly and patient with me - even when it to more them showing me the same things over five times. He explains very well what he is doing and why we are doing the lessons. Gives you the lessons that he wants you to work on -- very nice guy.---- Would recommend him very highly

Jeremie is really great at teaching! He is able to build my skills as a composer while at the same time acknowledge what I would like to get out of these composition lessons with him. I especially appreciate his ability to balance what I already know with the new material that I need to learn in order to improve as a composer as well as a musician. Once my lessons package is fulfilled, I plan on signing up for another set of lessons with Jeremie!

My 12 year old daughter is taking Guitar lessons from Jeremie for the last 6 months. She had never picked up a guitar before, so we knew this could be challenging. Jeremie has been so wonderful with her. Making the lessons fun, but also giving great one on one instructions. I highly recommend him as a teacher! As a parent, Jeremie is wonderful to work with when scheduling lessons. He is extremely accommodating, and understands kids and parents seem to be a little overloaded. He is very quick to respond when you email questions, or have scheduling issues. I HIGHLY recommend Jeremie. Give him a try!!! He is WONDERFUL!!!!

My 12 year old began taking guitar lessons from Jeremie a few months ago and so far it has worked out perfectly. My son hadn't picked up a pick before Jeremie. And now he is genuinely interested. Jeremie is patient and fun and just right for my son.

From a logistics perspective, I can't say enough. Jeremie is reliable and communicates promptly and effectively. He works with us in scheduling conflicts and is as flexible as he can be.

I highly recommend Jeremie for lessons for you or your child.

Jeremie is a good listener and I think he really got what it was that I wanted to learn. He wasn't up on the latest version of Garageband for ipad, but he knew the basic stuff from past versions. This was only my first lesson, so I haven't spent enough time to give a deeper review. Jeremie seems very nice.
