Alysia R. Glenview, IL

I like giving my flute students a very well-rounded education. In terms of playing the flute, I strive to help my students improve their note-reading ability, their technical skill, their timing, and their musicality. Often in lessons, I teach students how to play scales, technical exercises, solo works (of various musical genres).

Also, for students that participate in ensembles such as band or orchestra, I am more than happy to help them with their ensemble music.

About Alysia

Having taught piano and flute lessons for over 12 years in the North Shore. I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages (3 - adult), both beginner and advanced. I enjoy teaching students the "classical music" repertoire. I also strive to give my students a solid foundation in music theory and history in order for them to truly understand and appreciate the roots and structure of the music. In addition, I want my students to really love playing music and so I strongly encourage my students to also learn to play music outside of the classical repertoire. I believe balance is key, so I generally teach students to play classical music as well as music from other genres (such as film music, pop music, video game music, holiday music etc). *** Lesson Details *** Each ...

Loretta M. Chicago, IL

Flute lessons focus on posture, breath control, theory, and performance in all genres of music.

About Loretta

I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style.

My 11-year-old absolutely loves Miss Loretta. She's enthusiastic, patient, encouraging and makes learning music fun. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lesson and learning something new. If my daughter brings a piece she wants to learn, Loretta finds a way to fit it in. It's clear that Loretta loves teaching and is a natural at it. We feel lucky to have found her.

In my last lesson, Loretta helped me work through a major misconception about myself. I did not believe that my voice sounded good in falsetto - so I didn't practice it, lowered my expectations, and generally created a self-defeating barrier..

The transformation in learning to love what's coming out of my pipes is more than just voice-deep. Now I believe there are new lands I can conquer! Thank you for helping me to love my upper register Loretta!

After only a couple of lessons I can tell that Loretta is a well rounded teacher. As a flute instructor she is better than what I could have imaged.
Kristin S. Chicago, 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.

Positivie feedback

Kristen is a really fun person to learn from. She doesn't sit there and try to make you bored by learning scales for months on end. She tries to get the students playing while also learning notes at the same time. I've already learned 4-5 new notes from her and that's awesome. She is constantly telling you that you are improving, even though sometime I feel like I'm not even making a dent in this thing. I'd tell anyone who lives close that she is a down to earth and positively fun person to learn from. You will not just learn how to play, but play what you like and also doing this as an improvise. I cannot read sheet music that well and she has me playing without really needing to learn.

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 ...

Suzanne G. Chicago, IL

Whatever your learning curve, I expect your personal best at all times.

About Suzanne

Need a teacher who caters to your learning style? That's my specialty! Since I hold numerous freelance jobs, I have worked under a number of odd circumstances playing a variety of styles (and even instruments!). I have earned both a Bachelor's and Master's of Music in flute performance--both from DePaul University, and have studied and performed with many well-respected orchestral and freelance performers. My resume and references are available upon request. *** Lesson Details *** I emphasize solid tone and technique as a foundation for playing, but always encourage musicality and finding your own voice within a piece. You'll often find me asking you "how did you feel about that performance?" in lessons, so you can begin to identify and troubleshoot your own habits ...
