I have been studying music composition with Jon for over 3 years. He has also beautifully played the accompaniments for my composed songs (all of several instruments) and recorded my songs at his home recording studio. Jon is a very dedicated teacher who loves to teach, and has a deep and diverse knowledge of all things musical. He is knowledgeable in all genres of music, and will happily teach any facet of music, and any type of music that his students get excited about. His knowledge of music theory is amazing, his notation skills meticulous, and his ability to instantly transcribe or play any recorded music he hears is almost unbelievable. One of my favorite things to do with Jon is to bring in a CD of some kind of music that excites me, but that I know little about, and have him listen to it, and instantly analyze and explain it to me, from a compositional standpoint. Jon is always on time for our sessions, and is always completely attentive, creatively innovative and deeply involved in the teaching process when with me.

Elif has done a fantastic job developing a lesson plan that helped me get back into playing the piano after 10 years. Our lessons go beyond the techniques to the history and theory of the music. Definitely one of the best piano teachers I've worked with.

My two sons, 5 & 7, love learning from Mr. Bob! He’s very patient with the kids and talented with multiple instruments (piano, guitar, drums). He holds high expectations for his students, which allows my kids to progress rather quickly. I’ve been very happy with having Mr. Bob as their music teacher; the boys always look forward to going to music lessons.

My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)

Guitar Chicago is the best option for music lessons in Chicago! Their instructors are patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. They do a fantastic job of working with you to achieve your individual goals. I started as a beginner with no guitar knowlege, and they helped me achieve my goals of playing multiple open mics and music events. I've also been able to meet and work with other Guitar Chicago students! They are always willing to work with my busy schedule, which is very hard to find with other schools or group lessons.

More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.

I have just hired Matt Peterson through Thumbtack to provide a series of piano lessons as a Christmas present to my wife. Thumbtack worked out exceedingly well in securing an exceptional local professional who meets my immediate needs. This was all accomplished in two days and Mr. Peterson has even created an artistic certificate with a holiday theme to present to my wife Christmas Day. Thanks Thumbtack!!! You've made my Christmas very special with your courteous and efficient service!!!! -Jack Bajor

I am a big fan of Jeremie's teaching method. This guy is amazing. Our lessons are online but that in no way diminishes their quality. I look forward to each lesson and suspect that will be the case indefinitely. He helped me find a new guitar, gave me some great tips about what to look for in an amp. He's given me innumerable pointers, pieces of music theory, sheet music (including tablature) for songs I'm interested in, and great advice about how to take stock in my progress (especially during times when it seems like I'm not moving forward very much). I don't think I could recommend Jeremie enough. If you get the chance to work with him, do yourself a favor and take it.

I am so excited to get back to lessons! I had the same teacher for over 10 years and just loved her.. Due to illness I lost her and has to begin the search for a new instructor. Brit is an incredibly talented and GIFTED musician ... But even better polite respectful and FILLED with energy and passion for the art! Those looking should CONTRACT HER!

Mrs. Cynthia is an excellent music teacher. My 7 year old has taken classes now for the past few years with significant progress. She is wonderful with children and has a disciplined approach that achieves tangible results. There is a good balance between having fun yet being able to have your child focus on the task at hand. I would highly recommend Mrs. Cynthia as a music teacher for any parent that's looking for an activity that is both fun but also enriching to your child as an individual. There are lessons learned in music class that also translate into better focus in school and resulting in higher performance of your child in the classroom. I hope my review was helpful to whomever is trying to make a decision on a music teacher. Regards, I. Bobb

As an adult returning to the piano after many years, I have enjoyed lessons with Greg immensely! He is patient, knowledgeable, and helpful. I've re-remembered some things, but I've learned a lot to complement some of the "muscle memory" and Greg is excellent about sharing some of the theory - which now makes sense after my experiences of a long time ago. I have really enjoyed my lessons and would DEFINITELY recommend him. My lessons have given me motivation to keep playing (and practicing). :)

Over the years, I've had the privilege of playing in multiple bands with Joshua. His music theory based vocabulary is always cerebral. But instead of coming across as "speaking over one's head" it actually helps you to connect the dots! He can speak and teach like a college professor, or at an easier to grasp level... say, 3rd grade. Being around him, I've learned many important music theory items by osmosis. Such as knowing my G## from my A, and the difference in the notes between a Bb Ionian mode and an F Mixolydian!

I contacted Jerry,inquiring about in-home guitar lessons for my daughter. He replied immediately with helpful suggestions of an instructor. When I realized my daughter wanted a female instructor Jerry went out of his way to find out more about my daughter and the kind of instructor who would be compatible with her. He then suggested one of two female instructors he felt would meet her needs. I was impressed with the time and effort he put into helping me find an instructor for her. This was extraordinary that he would take the time to help me when it did not directly benefit him and he did not even know me! I had originally contacted Jerry because of his highly regarded reputation for teaching and instruction. But now I also hold him in high regard for his kindness and dedication to helping others find their way into the world of music.

Corie was an exceptional teacher for our family. My two young daughters and myself (adult beginner) studied with her for nearly 2 years before she moved out of the area. She was extremely organized, prepared for classes, and patient with my occasionally difficult daughter – showing great care and patience coupled with clear expectations. It was a truly positive experience. Corie is a uniquely gifted Suzuki teacher and performer. She cares a great deal for her students and also has an exceptional musical background. Lessons were well paced, group classes provided practice in performing and overall musical skills. Just can’t say enough good about her studio.

Verified review

Mary has given our son (who is entering third grade this fall) piano lessons for 2 1/2 years and we could not be happier with our son's experience. Mary has a very pleasant personality and knows how to develop a good rapport with kids (this probably stems from her many years as a music teacher at a K-8 school). We feel like our son has advanced rather quickly in part because Mary introduces him to more challenging material as soon as he is ready. She also solicits input from our son regarding the music selection. This helps motivate our son as he enjoys learning pieces with which he is already familiar and that he likes. In summary, we are thrilled with the piano lessons and highly recommend Mary!
