Just witnessed my first lesson with David. He was able to make my introverted wife feel comfortable enough to come out of her shell and make silly sounds with him. She appreciated that the first lesson didn't include a "sing me your favorite song" request to see what she could do. Instead, he started with the basics and spent the lesson teaching proper breathing and letting the pressurized air out of tight vocal chords (as against "pushing" the sound out). Looking forward to many more lessons. Now she's got to practice!

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 am taking lessons with him. You won't regret it.

We are thrilled to start lessons with Mr. Garcia. During the evaluation session, he was so kind and clear in how to improve the skills for the young ones. Very encouraging to find a teacher who is compassionate about his craft and so excited to teach. Looking forward to lessons for my 8 years old.

I am an adult student who began lessons with Elif many years after my initial childhood lessons. It has been a wonderful experience in every way. She is teaching me not only how to play the instrument but musical theory as well which I appreciate as an adult learner. I highly recommend Elif for any adult who has been thinking of learning (or returning to) the piano!

My daughter takes voice lessons and participates in theater at Stacey De and Co. We couldn't be more thrilled with everyone there, from the professional front desk staff Bre, outstanding director Sean, absolutely irreplaceable Melissa, and of course the heart and soul of this great place Stacey. The time my daughter spends at Stacey De and Co. every week is her favorite time of her week. In a completely non-stressful, family-like environment, she is stretched to really push her limits, is taught life lessons like the value of hard work and the ability to accept constructive criticism/evaluation and then improve on those things, and so very much more. She leaves every lesson and rehearsal a little more confident, learned, and determined to succeed...all in an environment of happiness, laughter, encouragement. I don't know what else one could look for in a fine arts school. My daughter and I both love it here.

I've been working with Michele for the past two years. She is very knowledgable and resourceful when it comes to vocal health and technique. She does a great job at tailoring lessons to her student's specific needs and providing tools to use to improve upon your craft.

I never realized learning to play guitar would be so much fun! Dan is the best. Not only does he explain the information in a way that is easy to understand, he makes learning it fun! I still look forward to lessons after nearly nine months and I can't imagine a reason I would ever stop taking them here.

Paul is patient and truly took interest in me getting better at the guitar. He would check up on practicing after the lesson and was always available for any questions. Pauls a great teacher. I highly recommend him for lessons.

Yuen has been really great to work with. She is flexible in her scheduling, very patient with my limited abilities in the piano and my occasionally spotty practice regimen, always friendly and cheerful, and, as far as I can tell with my still-limited knowledge base, really knows her stuff. I am definitely improving under her tutelage, and look forward to having my daughter start taking lessons with her when she turns four.

I took guitar lessons with Shane for about 3 or so years and it was such a great experience. After trying many other places that gave lessons, the experience that I had with Shane really made it easy, fun, and enjoyable. I learned A TON while still getting to pick the style of music I like. I was able to explore different types of music and different artists that Shane introduced to me, some of which are among my favorites today. Choosing Shane at TriTone music was a great decision that made for a fantastic learning experience for me.

This year, our daughter won first place in the Chicago Chapter National Association of Teachers of Singing (CCNATS)’ High School Division 1 Vocal Competition! At Elizabeth’s suggestion, she also auditioned for the Anima Chorus of Glen Ellyn, and sang a solo with them on WFMT’s Saturday Broadcast of Introductions. Elizabeth is truly an amazing teacher! She explains everything very well and never leaves a question unanswered. Our daughter, Brianna Dulock, has received nothing but compliments from other experienced professionals […] It is impressive how much information Elizabeth can fit into one lesson. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the high quality of your voice lessons, and for giving our daughter this amazing voice.” — Rose Figuero Dulock, Stone Park, IL

Altered Stage is a great concept. I was looking for a place to learn guitar and did some research. After I saw the Yelp reviews, I gave them a call. I am so glad I did! Jeff Bergau and I spoke for an hour, just getting to know one another. He was very reassuring and encouraging. I have been taking lessons from Jason Steele. He is great - enthusiastic, helpful, positive, and motivational. I highly recommend becoming a member and taking lessons from Jason. For the drummers out there, Dave Agee is incredible! In the time that I've been a member, I've learn so much and have become a member of this community of kindred spirits and fellow music lovers. The new space at 657 W Lake Street is incredible: the overall vibe is great - a testament to Jeff Bergau's spirit and commitment. There are private and group jam rooms as well as a relaxed atmosphere to encourage members to chill and spend time with one another. The people and place are truly unique.

I started out with the voice class. I was not a singer at all! Ms. Hill takes students from wherever they are, and works with them. She is so very encouraging. Learning about music in voice class inspired me to take piano lessons, which was something I thought I'd never do! But again she takes you from where you are. I am an adult learner, venturing completely out of my comfort zone. I am also a retired teacher. Ms. Hill demonstrates all of the best qualities of an educator. She quickly evaluates the needs of her students and individualizes lessons to suit their needs. She does so with both children and adults.
