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 have had many sessions with Stephanie, who is an absolute professional and outstanding musician and violin instructor. To put things in perspective, I am a 26 year old male with no prior experience in music theory or violin practice. After the first two sessions, I was able to play several notes and simple tunes on my own. I have since had several more sessions, and am very excited to continue with lessons. I find myself feeling excited to practice at home on my own, and making time to try Stephanie's techniques; It's just that fun. Stephanie is receptive, patient and incredibly skilled at finding ways to teach violin from an integrative, individual approach. She is worth every penny and I am incredibly lucky to have found her as my instructor.
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.
My son has taken violin lessons with Clete for the last 6 or 7 years and we couldn't be happier to work with such an outstanding teacher. Clete has a vast knowledge of violin technique, great teaching style and a demeanor that lets his students know he means business but is still enjoyable to work with. My son has learned so much from him and continues to grow into a fine musician under Clete's tutelage. I highly rebmend him to anyone looking for a violin teacher.
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.
My son has been taking piano lessons with the Music Connection for more than a year. The teaching staff is excellent and my son is improving his piano skills weekly!
My son loves taking piano lessons with Ms Kim!
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 has been taking violin lessons from Mrs. Jones for the last 3 years, she just started piano a few months ago. We love Mrs. Jones. She makes her lessons interesting, helps my daughter understand and perform well. Mrs. Jones has taught my daughter her music as well as self confidence. Mrs. Jones has her student perform at her church every year and you can tell right away how her students grow to become really accomplished musicians.
We love Bellas Artes! The teachers excel at combining technique and joyful discovery within an atmosphere of encouragement. My kids LOVE their lessons with Destiney and Constance and, more importantly, are learning to love to play music while being challenged and encouraged. Having such talented musicians who are so gifted in working with kids is such a blessing! Practically speaking, it is great because with 5 kids it is huge to have both piano and violin lessons in the same place, and they are always gracious in working with my schedule. We highly recommend Bellas Artes!
I’ve always been fascinated by the violin. The moment I could muster up enough courage to take classes, I was extremely dedicated, however, not knowing anything about instruments and being an absolute beginner in playing one, it was always a challenge to find a teacher who could match my excitement and interest. When I met Kal, I felt that he had a genuine desire, not just to teach me how to play the violin, but to help me understand music as a whole; to incorporate all musical notes into my life through our lessons. Taking up an instrument can be such an intimidating task, but it is not at all impossible! With Kal as my teacher, in just a few months, I found myself reading music, playing to rhythms, listening to notes and recognizing them (and playing solely by listening to notes!) - basically, I found myself learning music, wholly, something that no other teacher had ever managed to take me through. Thanks to Kal, I can pick up my violin, tune myself, and just…play. His love for music is palpable and quite easily transferable; his dedication is outstanding, and his help has been truly invaluable.
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.
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!
HGS Music is amazing, has the best staff and is really fun! I always feel very welcome. I think they've even convinced me to start playing Ukulele as well!
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.
Me. M is patient, kind, and gentle with my son. He corrects him without ever using negatives. He is a wonderful teacher!
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.
Our teaching philosophy is to instill a love of music through inspiration. Along with several years of teaching and performance experience, as well as successfully clearing a background check, Musika teachers are also graduates from reputable domestic and international conservatories, colleges, and universities. Musika Music Lessons takes time and consideration in pairing each student with a professional music educator that will help develop an understanding of all fundamental principles in music. We are happy to accomodate each student with any special requests that they may have.
I unlock the musician in you. I incorporate traditional methods along with adding the fun factor! I believe music is a gift, and I want to continue sharing it with the world!
