Pro musician/performer toured the world & performed on Broadway

I studied ear training at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. And as a working musician and instructor, I am constantly having to learn many songs by ear. Therefore, I use this skill on a daily basis. I have been giving private guitar lessons since 1994 at various music stores throughout the Chicagoland area - Pro Am Music in Downers Grove '94 to '98, Offbeat Music in Lake Zurich 2001 to 2008, Minstrel Music in Niles 2008 to 2012, School of Rock in Highwood and teaching out of my own home studio in Morton Grove. I truly believe that a big part of being a complete artist is giving back and s [more]

Former Music Professor (piano, jazz, composition, theory, history,)

My academic preparation in ear training consists of classes at Berklee College of Music and Roosevelt University. I served as ear-training coach while at Roosevelt. I always incorporate ear training in my piano teaching. When teaching ear training, I follow a standard university curriculum, starting with recognizing and notating basic tonal harmonic material (intervals and chords), tonal melodies, and simple rhythms. More-advanced work would consist of recognizing and notating modulating progressions, atonal materials, and polyrhythms/changing meter. I encourage each student to practice da [more]

Philosophy, History of Math & Sci., Eng./Comp.Lit, and Mol. Bio.

I have been a violinist for the last 21 years of my life. I was identified as having perfect pitch 20 years ago. I am currently teaching violin lessons in my spare time with an emphasis on passing down an internal understanding of rhythm and pitch relations. I studied with a professor of music in violin performance for 7 years at Hope College. Ever need someone to just sit with you and help reason out problems with assignments and/or writer's block? Good! This is what I like to do best. Having three years' experience as a collegiate lab assistant for music, writing, and the physical and biol [more]

Guitar, Songwriting, Jazz. Beginner - Advanced

My degree in jazz guitar included extensive music theory and ear training. With a solid foundation in theory, and great understanding of the piano, I have the tools necessary to help anyone become better at playing what they hear, and hearing what was played. Having transcribed numerous virtuoso solos, and countless songs of all styles, it has become an almost second nature, and essential part of my musicianship. I am primarily a guitarist, but I also play bass, drums, ukulele, piano, violin, and sing. I am originally from Indianapolis, where I learned violin from the Suzuki method. Becaus [more]

English-writing, grammar and Music-piano, voice, composition

Being able to sing back what a student has heard is an absolute must for a developing musician.

The instructor holds a Bachelor of Arts in Musical Composition from Spring Arbor University. Education has become my passion in life. I have spent the last 23 years on staff at Jackson College teaching music (including piano, voice and musical composition) and also conducting seminars on successful writi [more]
