- Teaches students:
- Ages 15+
- Teaching since:
My name is Luke, I recently moved to Chicago last year from Ireland were I taught songwriting, rock vocals, musical theory and acoustic guitar. I taught students privately over a six year period and a wide spectrum of levels all with different goals and aspirations. I have helped students to improve their songwriting, vocals, guitar and performance.
Some have gone on to record their own original works, performing live regularly and receiving radio plays.
I believe that it is crucial to find an artists uniqueness and work on their talents and to achieve what they set out to accomplish.
I have hands on practical experience in the music industry on a professional level and I feel this can be very beneficial to aspiring songwriters and musicians alike.
I myself am a rock artist and singer who has had a number 2 album on the I.R.M.A official charts in Ireland. I achieved a top 10 radio single position with significant airplay nationally. My albums and works have been carried at all the major retailers at home plus our national airline.
I am currently the lead singer in a rock band called Blacklist Regulars here in Chicago.
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a membership association of more than 480,000 US composers, songwriters, lyricists and music publishers. The ASCAP is committed to nurturing music makers throughout their careers.
Luke is an outstanding teacher, and it shows that he really enjoys helping people feel more comfortable with learning the ropes for vocals. I've been able to apply my exercises into tangible results with my current band, for rehearsal and live situations. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!+ Read More
Luke is probably the best teacher you can get right now in my area. He is super knowledgeable but also very practical. He will understand where you want to go as a player and will steer you there with a lot of patience. In my short time with him, while I still have a lot to learn, my ability to listen to music, demystify it and then use it as inspiration for my own playing, has grown significantly.+ Read More
Luke is a very dedicated instructor, he puts his soul on every lesson I received from him, he made me feel very inspired to be better on what I do.
He is a fantastic singer and guitar player, who made me understand the guitar better and achieve all those things that I thought were really hard to play. I would highly recommend Luke to anyone looking for a great instructor and mentor.
I reached out to Luke when he was based in Dublin as I was looking for a vocal coach. It had been years since I had sang in front of anyone and my confidence was very low. From my very first lesson with Luke I was able to tell that he was an extremely talented and capable musician but also a wonderfully kind and encouraging teacher. In over 3 years of vocal lessons with Luke he was the ultimate professional and he was completely committed to helping me achieve my goals. He helped me with my singing and helped me to develop confidence in my own abilities. I would highly recommend Luke K to anyone considering music lessons.+ Read More
I received lessons off Luke when he lived in Dublin, and after the first lesson I knew I was onto something. I was very inexperienced when I first met Luke and he has helped me to grow in ways I didn't think I could, I wanted an understanding of bar chords and how to play them, he layed it out so simply for me and in a way that I was unable to grasp before. My guitar playing has improved greatly over the last few years and I would highly recommend Luke to anyone looking to grow and further their abilities, he is a excellent mentor, thank you Luke.+ Read More
