About Gabriel
I graduated with a BA in jazz studies from Columbia in 2007 and have been teaching since 2005. I have played in many different projects, covering many styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin, Hip hop, classical, orchestral, and country. So, I have a strong understanding on the specifics of each of these styles, and a big part of my lesson plan is to teach my students to be as versatile as possible. Hence they have many options as far as playing music. I also play a wide variety of instruments including Piano, Latin Percussion, Mallets, Drum set, Guitar, and bass, so if at any point a student has an interest in trying something different t they have many options.

*** Lesson Details ***
Gabriel has been drumming professionally for nearly a decade, and teaching for seven years. In 2007 Gabriel received his BA in Jazz Studies/percussion pe
rformance from Columbia college Chicago, where he studied Drumset with Chicago legend Tom Hipskind, conga virtuoso's Rubin Alverez, and Giovanni Hildalgo, and studio vibraphonist Rick Embach. Gabriel has a high success rate with his students including the winner of the "Heat Strokes" drum competition 2007, Joey Handley. Gabriel's method of teaching is relaxed, yet enthusiastic he strives for making even the most complex musical ideas as simple as possible, and overall making learning fun.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music, Music Stands, Acoustic Piano, Keyboard, Fender Rhodes, Drum Set, Hand Drums, Guitars, Bass, metronome, amps, computer and more!

*** Travel Equipment ***
When teaching at a student's home I am able to bring: Music, Music Stand, Drum Sticks, Hand Drum, Guitar, Bass, Computer, metronome and more!

*** Specialties ***
I work out of various books for drums: Stick Control, Advanced Bop Drumming, A Funky Primer for The Rock Drummer, and also have an assortment of my own exercises and rudiments.

Gabriel is an amazing music teacher not only is he helping me with bass guitar but also understanding a bit of music theory. He shows me ways to to help maximize the amount of learning I can get out of practicing. Overall he is a great teacher with knowledge of a multitude of instruments and music in general.

About Jon
My life long passions have been for guitar, music, and business. I received my very first guitar at the age of 12 years old and have been studying, playing, and improvising ever since with over 28 years of experience. I have had the honor to train under some of the finest Guitarists in the Chicagoland area: Dave Uhrich, Eric Mantel, Toshi Iseda, and Tom Hess.

I have performed as lead guitarist on worship teams for over 15 years, currently at Kenosha Bible Church. As the lead guitarist of Aural Groove, I recorded under industry pro Michael Charles of Moonlight Studios. As lead singer and guitarist of Manna (an acoustic duo) I recorded under Rex Carroll of Whitecross.

I teach and train in a method I have coined "8 Cycle Guitar". This approach alternates areas of focus each week; like a fitness program. By routinely rotating through t
he 8 cycles of guitar training, the student gains the skill needed to master the instrument quickly and effectively.

My Promise to you, simply put, "You Will Learn to Play the Guitar, period." I will be your own personal Guitar Coach. Look through the pics in my profile. 90% or more of those students started out as absolute beginners. I will help to keep things moving along, keep you motivated, keep you inspired, and keep the lessons fun.

What do I want in return: committed students, students who show up to their lessons, students who will practice a half hour per day or more, 5 to 7 days per week. Students who do not use the words "I can't," but instead use the words "How can I? Please show me."

I am here to teach, train, coach, and mentor you to the best of my ability. If you do the things I request you to do in and outside of your lessons...I personally guarantee you will learn to play the guitar and impress all your friends and family.

Let's start this journey together. You won't regret your decision.

It's always overwhelming when your trying out a new instrument for the first time but David is the one to show you in the right direction. In just a short hour, he had showed me the basic principle on how to play and how to read the notes off the page which were greatly helpful. I can't wait to go to my next session!

About Natalie
Hello!

I work full-time as a school psychologist, and love playing piano in my free-time to de-stress. I am someone who believes in the importance of technique and theory, but sees the enjoyment and therapeutic nature of learning to play an instrument and making music as the most important part of all.

I have played the piano since I was 7 years old, and growing up I participated in piano competitions, accompanied for choirs/soloists, was employed as a church pianist, and played at several weddings. I am experienced in playing various kinds of music, such as contemporary, classical, and jazz.

I am willing to work with all ages, but would particularly work well with school-aged children and children with special needs due to my years of experience working with those populations. I am very easygoing, patient, fun, and am determined
to have others experience the same feeling of "flying" that I have when being able to play the piano with ease.

I look forward to working with you!

About Glenn
I'm originally from Los angels California, I grew up outside of Hollywood and started off just like all of us being a fan first. I've played guitar , bass and drums in numerous bands of different genres primarily rock, metal, country and blues based. I soon after became a guitar tech (since I worked on all my own instruments anyways) and began giving lessons very soon after. I strongly believe going outside of one's comfort zone musically as a great way to open new doors and pathways not normally seen.
With teaching of any musical instrument, circumstances can easily force the teacher and student to frequently go outside of their own comfort zone. For me personally this helps so much with viewing things from different perspectives and with connecting with principals or methods. And developing a visual and cognitive understanding
of the instrument. I throughly enjoy teaching and passing down my acquired skills and information to anyone willing to learn. For the preservation of generations to come.
