Our daughter (Kivi) started with the recorder in 4th grade, and soon graduated to clarinet. By Middle School, she was taking lessons from a classical teacher who advanced her skills markedly. Upon reaching high school, she was in demand by the jazz band - whose leader persuaded her to take up the saxophone. Kivi loved the sax, and loved jazz, but clarinet remained her first instrument. I thought of the great jazz clarinet players: Pete Fountain at the top of a substantial list. But we could find no one who could teach jazz clarinet. Finally, we attended an event at VanderCook, and one of the presenters gave us Jon's name. Kivi studied with Jon for about two years. I was disappointed with the amount of time Kivi had to spend practicing Jon's lessons - what high schooler has time for anything? Nevertheless, Kivi learned a great deal from Jon, and was the only student to ever perform a clarinet solo in our high school's jazz band history ("Jack the Bear"). Jon was unique in my experience in that he taught what Kivi wanted to learn - rather than imposing a rigid course of instruction. If you are considering private lessons that offer something both valuable and unique, please look no further than Jon Novi.

David has many years of experience and emphasized the positive aspects of my singing and helped me improve posture, breathing and my vocal range in just three sessiona. He was very encouraging and I looked forward to our singing lessons. He helped me have the confidence to sing a song for my husband on our wedding day.

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 :)

Me and my son's experience while working with Paul was very welcoming. Paul was very easy to work with along with having a creative and keen sense of musical direction. I would definitely recommend him to others.

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.

My 6 year old has just started violin lessons with Joanna. She is absolutely wonderful with my young beginner. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes learning fun. My daughter can't wait to see her each week and wants to impress Joanna with all she has learned. Great music room environment for learning a new instrument. We are very excited at our daughters progess and we thank Joanna for her wonderful music program!

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 have been taking singing lessons from Elaine for a few months now. She is a really great teacher! I can't say enough positive things about her. I was always too nervous to get voice lessons, so my lessons with Elaine were the first time I received voice training. I'm so glad I decided to take weekly lessons as we work with great classical pieces. She has brought out aspects of my voice that I didn't know existed. I sing a lot when I'm out and about and I've gotten so many complements on my voice since taking lessons. We started with the basics since I had never had lessons before and this was really helpful for me. We have advanced quite quickly and I learn more about my voice each lesson. I have also developed confidence I didn't know I had regarding my voice! Elaine also has a beautiful voice that I could listen to all day! She is a very kind person and genuinely cares about her students. I would definitely recommend her to anyone from beginners to advanced singers.

Elizabeth Knox is very dedicated to her students, instructing with a level of detail and determination that inspires those she teaches to practice with the same intensity that she offers to them. Her holistic approach to vocal training can benefit voices of all ranges and skill levels, and I have made definite improvement in problem areas I had been unable to make a breakthrough with before. Lessons are never cut-and-dry-- each visit something new is addressed and worked on, from learning repertoire and refining technique, to stage presence and lessons on how our bodies produce sounds. I'm very thankful to have found her.

I got SO much more than I asked for connecting with Altered Stage. Not only does my membership get me access to unlimited guitar lessons with an awesome teacher, it also includes a great space with all the equipment needed, a welcoming community of likeminded and friendly recreational musicians, and the chance to play on-stage with my fellow members once/month. I went from being the guy who could play chords and learn simple songs through tabs to someone who understands music theory and feels comfortable jamming with strangers at the drop of a hat. A huge change from where I started and not at all what I expected. AS gives members the chance to get involved as little or as much as one wants. I could not recommend them more to musicians at any level.

Elisabeth Howard is a well-respected voice teacher who is able to teach both classical and pop singing. I took lessons with Liz during high school and found her to be a very knowledgeable, caring, patient teacher. Her Vocal Power method is a great way to build and maintain a strong foundation in singing. Liz was helpful with my college auditions and I was fortunate to be accepted to some of the best music programs in the country, including Juilliard, where I currently attend.

Both of my daughter's take piano lessons with Ms. Patti. They are 9 & 7 year old girls. They are very different and Ms. Patti teaches each one differently. She has identified their individual strengths and interests and motivates them in these areas. The weekly lessons, quarterly classes, and piano labs throughout the year are a few ways she keeps them challenged and engaged. She finds creative ways to motivate them to practice their piano on a daily bases and rewards their efforts. She encourages them to participant in music recitals and festivals that help them gain confidence and experience in performing. Ms. Patti is an amazing teacher. We are very pleased and our girls love her.
