Andrew is great - really like his versatility in working with beginners or experts. He is able to accommodate and adjust based on what your goals are (i.e. he can start with basics of music to start at the very beginning or he can help you learn a song knowing the bare minimum. ) He's always on time and very flexible with schedules.

I am an experienced violinist of 24 years, and have performed nationally and internationally in locations such as Carnegie Hall, Europe, and Asia. I am a passionate and experienced teacher, and have worked with students of all ages and levels. I can't wait to help you on your musical journey!

For all my students, I strive to cultivate independence of thought and creativity so that they can communicate their ideas to the highest musical and technical degree. My pedagogy promotes proper and relaxed positioning of the violin, strong rhythmic integrity, and active listening. My goal is for all students to develop their own musical voices, which in turn makes learning music and the violin fun and engaging!

All lessons will incorporate theory, technique and repertoire. Practice recordings specifically tailored to you will also be available to help practice be fun and engaging!

I was lucky to take lessons with Marisa for two years during my undergraduate music degree at CU Boulder. Not only is Marisa a wonderful and knowledgeable violinist, she is a intuitive and warm teacher. Marisa took my musicality to the next level and helped me develop proper, tension-free technique. Marisa's advice helped me to practice more effectively on my own, and I always felt inspired after our lessons. I would highly recommend Marisa as a teacher for violinists of any level!
Kylie
Dr Marisa has been teaching me for three years now. She is very good at explaining the pieces, and giving a short history lesson about how it was developed. This helps me learn and memorize the piece faster for recitals and performances. Despite the setbacks of COVID-19, she has still continued being an excellent teacher for me.
Kendalia
Throughout my entire music experience, Marisa is one of the best violin teachers I've ever had. She taught me how to listen and improve the sound I was producing, correct my bow hold, overcome my performance anxiety, and much more. I would highly recommend Marisa, no matter what your experience is with the violin.

I have been teaching students of all ages since the late 80's how to play the Classical Guitar, read music and music theory as well.
I very much enjoy teaching and helping students achieve their goals.

David Ragsdale
Fantastic teacher. I'm retired and most of Ingo's students are above 40, he says. He has some young ones too of course but it's nice to know I'm not the only one. Matter of fact he told me his oldest student is 82 years old. Fantastic! Ingo is extremely knowledgeable about classical music in general and especially the classical guitar. I love the time we spend together and always look forward to my next lesson. Our conversations are as good as the guitar lessons. I encourage all people of all ages to see him for their classical guitar lessons. I have learned a lot and have made very good steady progress since I started. He is the real deal.
Jason Allen
Ingo is the best. Simply the best.
I’ve had two other teachers before I found him and there is simply no comparison to how much better he is. He is a real reacher! The other two were posers.

I am a creative and innovative instructor who loves helping each student find their voice and pursue their unique interests musically.  I completed my Masters in Music at Northwestern University in 2015, where I sought to create and present exciting multimedia recitals that combined classical music with other art forms. I believe one of the most important things we can do as musicians is connect music to our larger experiences, and, in my lessons, I help students form a strong technical and theoretical foundation as well as connect to the deeper meanings and connections of songs. For the past 3 years, I have taught voice and piano lessons with Flatts and Sharpe Music Company in Chicago and have extensive experience teaching online lessons.

I've been teaching guitar for the past 15 years. I help students find their unique musical voice through the study of songs and techniques they are interested in. For younger students I also use the Hal Leonard guitar method books to learn music reading. As students advance we switch to William Levitt's Modern method for guitar for jazz students, or Christopher Parkening's classical guitar method for fingerstyle players. Students should be able to play chords to their favorite tunes within 6 weeks. I teach to inspire passion for music. If you love music it makes it fun to practice. When you practice it makes music fun!

"As a former student, I can honestly say that Rick Chyme is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He not only has a deep understanding of hip-hop as a craft and an art form, but he is also highly motivated to help his students become better individuals. His exercises that he assigns are quite diverse, and are designed to challenge students in a variety of areas. That said, they are extremely rewarding and will help students not only develop as artists, but also help them lead healthier and more fulfilling lives (I still practice many of Rick's routines and principles to this day).

Rick is more than just an instructor. He is someone who will serve as a coach, mentor, and friend for his students. I can't recommend him enough."
