"Stephen is an great teacher. He is very knowledgeable on martial arts and makes learning self defense fun. He takes his time and ensure each student under
stands the techniques taught. Also advises which techniques will best work for each student. I definitely look forward to learning more from him!!"
New York, NY teacher:
Review by Nicole
"I am new to the game of golf, but have had a couple golf lessons prior to working with Keith, which gives me a credible reference point for his teaching s
The entire experience of working with Keith was fantastic! His corrections are spot on without being overwhelming, his patience is admirable, and his excitement and love of the game was infectious! I truly wish that I could "take lessons" from him weekly. He gets best instructor ever status from me!"

Review by Curtis
"Austin taught me all about weight lifting. He helped me to achieve great form that would prevent any future injuries while also seeing much progress!"

In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle Sch
ool 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 techniques that are relevant to our current day and age.
*** Lesson Details *** Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

Daniel was very knowledgeable, very patient with my 9 year old and taught at her pace. The environment was clean and quiet and conducive for learning. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would recommend to anyone!

Wow. All I can say is that I am completely amazed. The first session gave me so much valuable information about myself. I took my assessments online and was so amazed. You get to see an in depth look at your overall health with the assessments. The online assessments tell you more than any other personal trainer, health coach, or even doctor will tell you. Valuable information.

As an older person who never had ballet lesson, this could have been a very intimidating experience but Teresa was very patient and thoughtful about her instruction. She really wanted to be certain I understood the terms, technique and overall format of ballet. A great experience! I look forward to my next lesson!
