About Hristo

I've been teaching guitar professionally since I've been 17 and I've taught a wide range of musicals styles from Jazz, Blues, Fusion, to Rock you name it. My first experience with the instrument was 8 years ago and since then I haven't put it down. Early on in my teaching career I found that it's important for students to have the drive to learn, but it's more important to have someone that can guide them in the right direction. I believe the role of a teacher is not only to instill that drive, but to fuel the fire of their imaginations through fun and effective exercises. I've had the pleasure of teaching students ranging from 5 to 60 years of age and have found that the fundamentals of playing are applied across the map. I'm currently attending Columbia College of Chicago and I'll be

Hristo is patient and full of passion for music. He is very knowledgeable and capable of imparting this knowledge well on children, as he has done thus far with our 10-year old and 6 year-old (first full month of lessons). He is flexible and even came to our house for the lesson when our schedule for that day was affected by another commitment.

Its going well thus far and our sons look forward to the lessons every week.

This guy loves what he does!

Histro is always on time and is very knowledgeable. He is a college grad that can teach you soo much. I've never played guitar before and after my third lesson with him, I already know 12 chords and am capable of playing at least two songs. A very relaxing way to spend my sundays. He makes it fun to learn the guitar!

Excellent experience.
I came in as a low intermediate player and after only a few lessons I feel much more confident! My sight-reading and technique approved a great deal in a short amount of time.

My two daughters are having a wonderful experience with Jesus. We've had about 7 lessons so far and I can't believe how great they are doing. He's a fantastic teacher, he's patient (especially with my restless 7 year old), encouraging and motivating (they love to practice!). We love his teaching style and how he incorporates history and information on various composers and his students, his passion for really shows. We are absolutely thrilled with Jesus.

About Tracy

I have been teaching individual and group lessons for 12+ years. Many of my students have won trophies at the Granquist music competition and also play in local youth orchestras. My own youth string ensemble plays publicly at many popular local venues several times a year. I enjoy exposing my students to the finer points of being a professional musician such as the camaraderie, team work, creativity (creating harmonies, tailoring arrangements to fit student’s level) and of course, stage presence. I am very proud of my students. It is so gratifying to see their confidence build with each new skill they master. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to teaching is to combine fundamentals with “adventure.” I encourage students to experiment with their instrument and have quite a few budding ...

Justin C. Chicago, IL

I can help you understand the ins and outs of music theory and harmony, despite your skill level. The very basic concepts will be emphasized, which will shed brighter light on the more advanced ones.

About Justin

My name is Justin, and I am a musician (big surprise). I have been playing the piano for the past 17 years and the trumpet for the past 13 years. My primary emphasis is jazz improvisation, but I have a solid foundation in classical repertoire as well as the basic fundamental techniques of the trumpet and the piano. I am originally from Fresno, California, but I currently reside in the Chicago area. I completed my B.A. in Trumpet Performance at California State University, Fresno in 2011, and I most recently completed my M.M. in Jazz Studies at Northwestern University in June of 2013. I have been performing extensively as a professional musician for the past 10+ years, and I have been teaching privately for the past 5+ years. The variety of musical genres that I perform is quite versatile,

Mr C. is a very knowledgeable and talented trumpet player. I have zero experience with the trumpet and music for that matter, but he makes learning easy and enjoyable. He gives good tips and practice methods. Very down to earth and doesn't set strict expectations and takes it day by day. Would recommend to anyone.
Nicholas F. Chicago, IL

Having studied music theory in detail for the past 5 years, I have a strong grasp over concepts that are both simple and very intricate. I am able to comfortably touch upon the basics and intricacies of melody, rhythm and harmony, as well as teach the ability to analyze music scores and recordings.

About Nicholas

I was born in the West Suburbs and began playing bass during high school. I moved to the city to attend music school at Columbia College Chicago, which I concluded with honors in the Spring of 2013. Since then, I have had the opportunity to play with a variety of bands at venues such as the House of Blues, Cubby Bear, Abbey Pub, Elbo Room, and others. With a firm grasp on a variety of styles of bass playing, such as pop, R&B, rock, alternative, blues, jazz, etc., I have had the opportunity to perform with numerous artists making original music in Chicago. Over the past year, I have also spent time touring on a national and international level with the Nick Moss Band, a blues outfit based in Chicago. With a style firmly rooted in traditional music theory, I have a strong grasp over the ...

As a fellow music instructor I know a great teacher when I see one and Nick is one of the best. His high level of musicianship and extensive knowledge inspires everyone around him.

Aside from being an amazing player, Nick is a kind and reliable person. He is great at breaking concepts down and explaining them in a clear way, which is essential for helping students through their most difficult challenges.

If you are looking to become the bass player of your dreams, Nick is your man!

Great students make great teachers!

Nick was my bass student at Columbia College - he also studied with Chuck Webb. He was an excellent student, always motivated. punctual, enthusiastic and right on top of all the assignments.

He has turned into a terrific professional player and will make a fantastic bass teacher. He knows the instrument inside out and is an excellent communicator. I highly recommend him to teach you or your child the bass guitar.

Nick has an immense amount of music theory and bass technique knowledge but I think the thing that sets him apart is his patience, reliability, passion, and his belief in others. Nick has a wonderful work ethic and will work hard to provide his student's with whatever they need.
