Daniel A. Schaumburg, IL

About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I am also a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new ...

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Daniel is a highly skilled piano teacher.

I have been very impressed with Daniel's instruction abilities - he is patient, tuned-in to whether or not I 'get it', and has opened the door to a whole new way to re-learn piano for personal enjoyment.
Penny R. Wheaton, IL

About Penny

ABOUT PENNY R. I graduated from college in Virginia with a Bachelor of Music Education degree as a voice major, and minored in piano and violin. My teaching certificate was for vocal, instrumental and general music, grades K - 12, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude. Graduate school brought me to Indiana, where I earned a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. Migrating up to the Chicago area from there, I taught at a private music school (voice and small ensembles, as well as many faculty performances) before staying at home to raise our children, and teaching voice lessons privately in my Studio. After 30 years of teaching, I'm still at it, and I still love it! I am a Permanent Professional member of Music Teacher's National Association (MTNA), Illinois State Music Teacher's ...

I took lessons with Penny for about 4 years and it was the best thing I could have done for my vocal development. I have since moved to the west coast and am still sad, every week, that we don't have our lessons. My vocal technique and confidence increased dramatically because of our lessons.

Penny is gentle and kind, extremely focused, and I found her method of teaching worked very well for me. She is very meticulous, always observing quietly and adjusting the message so that you can absorb what you are ready for. She helps you to feel the sounds you are creating, to explore your vocal abilities in a safe way, pushing gently but never too much.

If you are lucky enough to be close to Penny, do try her classes!

In my experience of Penny this afternoon as Giuseppe's wife bringing our4 year old daughter, it was disappointing. I do believe these other reviews are probably accurate in Penny being a great teacher. But after my daughter left she was quite discouraged to sing. Penny is not good with young children which I'm surprised considering she is a Pre K teacher. My daughter was excited and willing to learn this afternoon only to be scared and not want to ever sing again. As a parent who paid for a lesson the last thing I ever expect from a professional is discouraging a child. To have my daughter in tears and not wanting to sing for her dad anymore is heart breaking. I may not be a professional teacher but what I do know talking about what a child should not do should not be discussed in front if child to have them discouraged. Children don't hear what they should do as much as they hear what they shouldn't. In my recommendation to any parent if your child is 10 or younger Penny is not the teacher for her. Quite frankly I don't want her teaching my child period.
Joshua D. Carol Stream, IL

About Joshua

I have an unquenchable passion to learn about and create music. I grew up in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, Canada, with very little concert music around me. After hearing a digital piano play a Schubert Impromptu, I devoted my spare time to piano practice until I could play that piece. Since then, I have never stopped learning about and writing music. Sharing the joy of music with students and walking with them on a journey of learning is my greatest joy. *** Lesson Details *** Learning through collaboration is the most natural way to study piano. First hand experience with the instrument, imitating a good role model, and sharing the experience of discovery all create a fun, energetic, and relaxed environment. Because piano lessons are a collaboration, both the teacher and ...

Steven is a great teacher! He's flexible, and works well with all ages! He's teaching my 3 kids, drums, guitar and bass. He's very receptive and adjusts his lessons according to what my kids are interested in. For example one of my kids was learning notes, but then the other wanted to learn a specific song and he easily adjusted to focus on what each of them wanted to do to. My kids love him!

I took 5 in-home guitar lessons from Steve and loved every minute! I had never played guitar before so we were starting from scratch. We covered a lot of information, tailored to what I wanted to learn, and I felt like I made a lot of progress in a short amount of time. Steve was always on time, well-prepared for lessons, and was very encouraging. I would recommend Steve to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons.
