Hi! My name is Maxx M. I am an active professional pianist/keyboardist in the Chicago music scene and I am offering lessons to all ages. My specialty is preparing students for the modern music environment, so they can jam, write their own music, record with friends, and start their own band! Using a combination of listen/play exercises and music theory, I can guide students toward a more attuned ear so they can play from the heart rather than from a page!
