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 :)

Britt taught violin to our 4 year old for 2 months until we moved out of state. She was patient and caring and I could see my daughter's progress from week to week. Also, she did lessons in our home which was extremely convenient and she had some flexibility with her schedule. Easy to work with.

I’ve been taking violin lessons from Clete for 1 ½ years as one of his adult student. His teaching style has worked very well for me in that his critiques are concise and to the point, and he demonstrates how to make beautiful sounds with it. For each week’s assignment the amount is just right, with one or two particular areas to make improvement. Violin is not an easy instrument, and yet Clete doesn’t make me feel discouraged during the learning process.

Corie was my daughter’s first private violin teacher, and she was the perfect foundation for not just the love of the instrument but also the precise technique and skills needed to develop a true musician. Even years later, my daughter’s current teachers are impressed with the solid foundation she received under Corie’s tutelage. Corie made learning a challenging instrument fun at an age-appropriate level without giving up on any high standards. Whether it was learning to read music, developing ear and intonation, or perfecting a bow hold, Corie had multiple ways to teach, to address habits and difficulties, and to share experiences with the larger studio in group lessons. We still use her teaching reminders and phrases during practices sessions. With Corie’s violin lessons, you get more than just basic instruction; you get a surprisingly well-rounded introduction to true musicianship.

Both of my children (boy and girl) have taken piano lessons from Ada for 5 years. They love working with her. She is the perfect mix of fun and serious. She has also given them a music theory foundation that have used to learn other instruments.

My daughter absolutely loves having Danielle as her singing teacher! She counts down the days each week until her next lesson. I also love that Danielle uses my daughter's song choices in her instruction, which motivates her even more. We feel so lucky that we found Danielle!!

Each lesson I have with Anne Marie is worthwhile. She makes good use of the time, which includes a workable mix of review and new skills, and her expectations for lessons and practice time are realistic. She clearly explains, patiently corrects, and encourages often. Not only is she knowledgeable about music, she is a highly skilled violinist. Because I look forward to my weekly lessons with Anne Marie, I am motivated to practice at home, which is a credit to her. And—violin lessons are fun!

Ms. Nissa is a wonderful teacher. Our daughter, Madelyn, has been taking lessons from Ms. Nissa for the past 4 months. Ms. Nissa is always professional, arrives on time, responds promptly to texts, and has been very flexible scheduling around our busy summer schedule. Ms. Nissa communicates with Madelyn with clarity and makes learning the violin fun! In fact, Madelyn was always sad when her 30 minute lesson was over, so we increased the lesson time to 45 minutes. I highly recommend Ms. Nissa!

Irine is a patient, attentive and articulate teacher. While my playing aspirations are not exceptional, she has taken the time to explain what she believes will be valuable to what I want to achieve. I recommend her without hesitation.

    He's an excellent teacher! I straight up knew nothing about the violin when I first started but he was very patient with me which I needed in order to learn basics. He also worked with my schedule which is great. I'm not Mozart but I'm getting there.

    About

    I am a Chicago based violin instructor and performer. Playing the violin has had an incredible impact on my life, and I'm dedicated to sharing my love for music with my students. I have seen firsthand the social and academic growth of my young students as a result of playing the violin, and I am a firm believer that access to music can benefit a person's life in a way that nothing else can.

    About

    I am a current member of the DuPage Symphony and have 20 years of playing experience. I was initially educated in the Suzuki method at both Western Springs School of Talent and Community School of the Arts in Wheaton, followed by pre-conservatory study with Drew Lecher and Nan Zhou. I use a combo of Suzuki and traditional methods, customizing to the student's individual needs and heeding Dr. Suzuki's philosophy at all times. I am also a trained baroque recorder player who has studied privately and taken guest lessons and clinics with nationally-known recorder experts as Vicki Boeckman, Lisette Kielson, Rotem Gilbert and Leighann Daihl. I take violin students ages four and up and recorder students ages eight and up, either through Alleluia Lutheran Church in Naperville or privately within the student's home depending on distance. Please feel free to contact me via Thumbtack for more details, and thank you for considering me to be your violin teacher!
