Kristin S.

Willowbrook, IL

When you begin Flute or Recorder lessons, you must own or be renting your own instrument! We will begin hand placement and embouchure (mouth placement) practice, and slowly build up your repertoire of notes. Additionally, we will work on reading music so that you are able to participate in and explore every musical opportunity that you wish to. We will learn a variety of songs designed to strengthen your knowledge of the instrument, and build confidence in your playing skills.

About Kristin

How wonderful it is that you have decided to take lessons! My name is Kristin, and I cannot wait to begin this journey into music with you. I have been teaching private lessons for nearly a decade, and been teaching music and choir in the classroom since 2011. Music has been my passion for my entire life. I had decided by the time I was 13 that I had to pass on this love of music, and ultimately achieved my degree in Music Education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in the top ten of my class from VanderCook College of Music.

Our son has been taking piano lessons with Kristin for one year. We are very pleased with his progress! Kristen is warm, friendly and very encouraging! She teaches the kids on their level. Her schedule is very flexible and she easily accommodates us when we need to reschedule. We would highly recommend Kristin for anyone who wants to learn piano! =)

Tracy B.

Berwyn, IL

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 composers. No two students learn in the same way, so I don’t use the same strategy for each individual. I believe music should be fun and rewarding. I like to expose students to many different types of music, i.e.; jazz, pop, blues, folk and of course, classical. Students are more likely to practice music that speaks to their personality.

My teaching environment is very laid back. I expect my students to practice, but I don’t read them the riot act if they show up to a lesson not having practiced much the week before. I encourage them to practice more the next week and I give them strategies for how to fit practice time into their schedule along with the most efficient way to practice their pieces.

I encourage parents to sit in on their child’s lesson, but I don’t require it. The more a parent is informed about their child’s goals, the better they are able to assist, support and facilitate the student’s practice. Involved parents contribute greatly to a child’s success.

I love teaching adults too! It is never too late to learn an instrument and the rewards carry over into all aspects of life. As with children, music makes us all smarter. Research proves this. We learn complicated spacial and math skills without even realizing it; we’re having too much fun!

I have annual recitals for private students. I speak Spanish.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement studio finished and separate from house

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sometimes music. I can refer students to instrument rental or purchase places, but do not have instruments to provide. I can obtain music for the students if they prefer, otherwise I will tell them what and where to buy.

*** Specialties ***
I use Suzuki and other books for material, but my teaching is more traditional. I use actual bowhold from start. My own invention - pinky AND thumb houses. Music reading is introduced fairly early. A little at a time and it's painless.

Daniel K.

Chicago, IL

About Daniel

Daniel, a former faculty member of Columbia College in Chicago, is a studio and live performance singer and musician based in Chicago. His teaching and performing experience spans three decades, and includes expertise in the studies of voice, guitar, piano, bass, drums, and trumpet, along with music theory, arranging, and composing. He is a Lincoln Academy Student Laureate who holds a BA in Music Composition, and has attended graduate courses in education at Roosevelt University and DePaul University in Chicago. He has taught students of all ages at private studios, public school, and college.


Daniel is described by his students as a natural teacher. He prefers to be regarded as an advancing student, and takes the journey along with his students to guide them towards their goals with a friendly, positive, efficient and productive approach. He feels that music is within all of us, and a desire to learn is a sign of talent, so anyone can develop their musical abilities with methodical practice.

The musical journey for Daniel began at an early age with trumpet and piano studies which became a passion for him by the age of 14. He was the drum major of the high school marching band, and successfully completed a paid contract to arrange music for the high school jazz band which performed in a state beauty pageant. He began teaching privately after high school, and continued playing in bands, and composing original music. He formed a professional jazz ensemble under the name of the Chicago Jazz Players by the age of 22, and developed his arranging techniques while having it performed by an eighteen piece orchestra consisting of many great local artists. It was in this environment that he gained experience with brass, woodwinds, and rhythm instruments. He was granted a position at Columbia College as an instructor at age 29 where he taught theory, sight singing, musicianship, ear training, harmony, orchestration, and composition. He scored the music for several plays, and conducted his own pieces with Chicago Symphony and Lyric Opera Players. During those years he found himself playing the guitar and singing more than anything else. It was in 1995 that he focused on singing and playing the guitar with his rock band. He has produced several CD recordings of his original music in his own studio, and has helped produce local bands and artists. He performs regularly in the Chicago area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Daniel exhibits patience and care with each student, and develops an individualized approach based on clear goals with practical procedures. Most beginners can expect to have a working knowledge of music notation and how it applies to their instrument within three months, and should be developing fluency in performing music that they enjoy within six months. Advancing students will enjoy the rewards that will follow by studying with an experienced teaching musician that will recognize strengths and weaknesses, and recommend proven techniques for personal musical development. Studying music should be fun, fulfilling, and in harmony with the needs and desires of the student, and this is key to the philosophy held by Daniel.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Eight track recording gear; grand piano; guitars/bass (acoustic & electric); cables/amps, drum kit and percussion.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide lesson materials, and always have a metronome with me. I expect the student to have an instrument. I prefer that a student has a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
Customized approach to the individual based on needs and goals.

About Jennifer

Hello! My name is Jenny - it's nice to meet you!

I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students learn music and have fun!

I have since opened my own flute and recorder studio, and taught at several different music schools in San Diego and Chicago.

I am a compassionate and gentle person and my teaching style is centered around observation and play. Students will all learn the joys of playing classical music, and enjoy playing recitals together!

Jennifer has been a wonderful teacher for my 10 yr old son. He is new to the flute and Jennifer has shown much kindness and patience with him throughout each lesson. She has also been quite inventive in helping motivate him to practice more (I admit to being hands-off about practice since I didn't want to have any other elements in our life to argue about).

Our son also participates in a school band and we were quite touched that Jennifer took the time to attend our school band concert. She has a true enthusiasm for music and she brings that generosity to her lessons.

You'd be lucky to have her as a teacher.

Jon N.

Skokie, IL

Flute is the original out-in-the-country instrument. It charms everyone's ear and is the most noble of all instruments, save for the violin.

About Jon

Jon N. was born and raised in Mexico City and is proudly an American citizen. He has been performing since the age of three, on several instruments, studying music since fourteen, and still takes lessons to this day. What's not to love?

He is proud to teach at all levels, including many professional musicians with master’s degrees, adult beginners, and of course, kids of all ages between 8 and 75.

They are encouraged to select the music they want to learn, so we have worked on classical music and original compositions, which I also coach, jazz, blues, pop, rock, the Great American Songb
ook, reggae, seven different kinds of Jewish music, and other ethnic music from all over the globe.

Frequently the younger students will request a tune I've never heard, but I magically transform the MP3 into a handwritten score at the student's level. Example, one of my adult beginners wanted to play the big symphonic poem Scheherazade, and I wrote out the main tunes for easy piano.

I have had 4 piano lessons with Jon so far and he has been great. I just signed up to continue with him and I really look forward to my weekly lesson with him.

He's always very positive and encourages me to be positive too. He's also very responsive to my needs, helping me to concentrate and giving me beautiful music that I really enjoy and can work with.

I heartily recommend Jon. He's a very capable teacher, and a kind, considerate person.

I would just like to present the rest of the music world to Mr. John Novi. This gentleman has been nothing but stellar in his methods of teaching me how to be a better piano player and composer. I have never felt more confident in myself than after the first lesson I had from him. I advise anyone and everyone who has any second thoughts about him to throw them out the window and dive head first in lessons with him. You will never be in more qualified hands than his.

I’ve only recently begun taking piano lessons, but I can already tell that Jon Novi is the kind of teacher who sees limitless potential in his students. His enthusiasm buoys me even when I think I’ve messed up a song, and encourages me to try again.

Also his piano skills are on point, and he does a good job of explaining how to read a score and the mechanics of playing the piano.

Beyond piano know-how, though, I would argue that it is Jon Novi’s zest for teaching that makes me glad I’m taking lessons with him. You won’t regret it.
