- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer 30 minute lessons for $30.00, 45 minute lessons for $45.00 and one hour lessons for $60.00. Lessons are conducted in my home studio, located in Highland Park, IL.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I majored in piano and instrumental music education at DePaul University and the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. While studying at De Paul University, I played Timpani for the De Paul University Symphony Orchestra, which regularly performed in Chicago's Orchestra Hall. I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Illinois in 1974 and my Master's degree in Music Education a year later, in 1975. While at the University of Illinois, I studied piano with famed pianist Eugene List, and Piano literature with Soulima Stravinsky (Igor Stravinsky's son). I taught instrumental music (band & orchestra) in the Champaign/Urbana school systems while working on my Master's degree. After receiving my degrees, I ran the music programs for a small town in western Illinois. This included band, orchestra, chorus, general music and private instrument lessons. After teaching in public school systems, I went to work at Karnes Music Company in Des Plaines, Illinois as a guitar and piano instructor. I recently founded the Silbernik Music Academy in Highland Park, IL., and am now using my educational and performance experience to teach students of all levels.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have successfully worked with beginning and advanced students ranging from 6 years old to adults.
