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 :)
David has been my drumset teacher for about one year. I like how he makes me write out rhythms and he also taught me how to create drum beats. I've leaned so much studying with David.
My son really enjoys the drum lessons and has learned a lot in a short amount of time. We are very satisfied!
Great instructors, very friendly. Sam was the best drum instructor. I learned a lot in a short time.
I found Eric through a friend of a friend and love him. My 12 year old son has been taking lessons from Eric for about 6 months now and really enjoys it. I never have to remind him to practice anymore. Eric is reliable, always on time and enthusiastic every time we meet.. My son can't wait for his next drum lesson. He really seems to be learning a lot.
Dave was very patient and fun for my 6 year old who started drum lessons last year. The progress my son has made and his developed love of music is quite impressive. Dave is also always prompt and professional, as well as flexible. Perfect match for us!
My wife and I am very fortune to have Andrew Sole as a drum teacher for our twin boys. Our boys have been taking drum lessons from Andrew for two years now. His teaching skills and care are main reasons why our boys enjoy his drum lessons. We highly recommend Andrew's drum lessons to all. Thank you, Andrew!
I've been taking guitar lessons from Matt for the past 4 months and I highly recommend him for many reasons. I like the convenience of him coming to my home. He grew up in Downers Grove and I in LaGrange. He attended the same high school as me. He's local so I feel very comfortable with him coming to my home. He's very patient and has never been late or canceled a lesson. But most importantly. If your serious about learning how to play guitar then you are in luck because he is the real deal! I'm 56 years young and I've tried lessons before at music stores & with friends and quickly lost interest and got nowhere. Now I really believe I'm going to be a good guitar player in the near future and it's because I have the 'most excellent' guitar teacher Matt Engler! Thanks Matt!!!!!
I started taking lessons from Mike in 2009 after not having played since high school. Mike starts you off at the level he feels is appropriate for you, and you go from there. A great thing about the class are the lessons are recorded, which saves so much practice time throughout the week. With other classes, if you wrote or remembered something wrong, you can waste a whole week practicing something incorrectly. The lessons build upon each other, and do make you think; many are quite challenging, but the payoff is looking back and what seemed difficult months earlier, you can now do without thinking. Mike also gives you excellent pointers on how to break the lesson into segments and put it all together. The only complaint I have is I wish he were my teacher when I had started playing years ago; I would have never stopped. You cant go wrong learning at Chicagos #1 drum lessons.
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.
We cant say enough abiut Eric. We have had an amazing experience with Eric. My ten-year-old son has learned so much and is so inspired by Eric during every lesson. Eric really knows how to work with kids and keep them interested. Not only is he an amazing instructor, but he is a rocking drummer himself. We will continue to take drum lessons with him as long as my son stays interested.
I have been taking piano lessons for 5 years, voice lessons for 9 months and flute lessons for 6 months at Music Makers...For Life, Inc. As an adult with prior music experience, I had certain ideas on how I wanted my lessons,and Theresa was very willing to accomodate my wishes. She always tried to work within my schedule as well. Theresa was always kind and patient with me and always made me feel good about my music and myself! I'm also impressed with how her school is structured for kids. They earn "music money" if they've practiced their lesson or land on the right square on the board game the teachers use to reinforce their teaching. Then they can spend their "music money" in her "music store" on small toys, or t-shirts, tote bags, etc. This really motivates the kids to want to practice! Older kids might be invited to join one of her rock bands, which perform around the county. Playing in a rock band helps to keep the teens enthusiastically engaged in their music! Music Makers...For Life is truly "The Fun Way to Learn to Play"!
Mike is one of the most competent and skilled drum instructors I know. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
Frank is the best choice for great music lessons, I had him as my drum instructor for around 3 years. He taught me everything I know now and helped me build a foundation to be a great drummer. I Highly recommend him to anybody wanting to learn how to be a great musician and have FUN at the same time too!!!
Very professional and extremely competent. Excellent with small children. Would highly recommend.
I have played drums for 40 years and was in the music industry. I worked with Buddy Rich, L. Bellson, and G Krupa. In the area of rock, I have worked with Kansas, Alice Cooper, Rush, Chicago, BS&T, and many more. I teach a standard practical method but also apply what is being taught, so that the student understands theory and develops taste. In this way, they will get invites and earn spots at auditions.
Hi! My name is Andy and I've been playing drums since I was 6 years old (now 31.) I'm very experienced and love teaching people how to play! I have worked at a children's music school in Chicago and taught lessons at multiple music stores. I also play multiple instruments and am in a band that plays shows around the city.
I've studied drums with some of Europe's and Chicago's finest drummers. I can help you develop your technique, timing, feel and style on the kit at a pace that is perfect for you. No matter what your experience is, I will give you my best effort to help you grow as a musician.
I have been playing drums for 15 years, and I played violin before that. I have played in numerous bands, and I put an EP with my brother's band, Needers & Givers. Some of the tracks were used in episodes of Gossip Girl, a TV show. I come from a long line of professional musicians in my family, including my brother Chris Hoffman, a professional cellist with many professional accomplishments including a piece that was used in the end credits of the movie Shutter Island! I am fluent in rock/pop drumming and many other styles. I like to focus on rhythm and coordination for beginning drummers. I am available some evenings and weekends.
Simple. CDL (Chicago's # 1 Drum Lessons) is the only in person one on one drum instruction that offers an extremely original lesson plan on DVD to take home where you can not learn from another teacher, book, etc. Our custom curriculum has been thought out to get a student from point A to point B in their drumming extremely fast, and efficiently. We can also help with a students school band pieces. Just watch some of our sample videos of actual current students. That's our proof!
I'd say that I stand out because I'm somewhat younger than other teachers but well experienced already. I am more up-to-date on the newer styles of drumming but have also taken the time to learn the classics such as jazz and shuffles.
