Mr. Bob has provided my children (8 and 9 years old) with piano lessons in our home as well as the studio. They went from not knowing anything about music to reading notes and playing songs within a couple of weeks. When they would get frustrated he helped them work through their struggles to show them they could be successful. I would highly recommend Mr. Bob.

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 :)

I searched Craigslist for instructors in Orange County who teach "Moeller", a specialized method to maximize energy efficiency while drumming. David O and I spoke briefly on the phone about my expectations. I have taken just 5 lessons in total, and so far, my goals have been met or exceeded, including a huge breakthrough on my speed and technique (I'm a technical metal drummer). I can't express how to the point and precise David is. He has learned from some of the best drummers in the business and I feel honored to have the opportunity to work with him and improve my craft. Thank you David!!

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.

Dave was very patient and fun for my 6 year old who started drum lessons last year. The progress my son has made and his developed love of music is quite impressive. Dave is also always prompt and professional, as well as flexible. Perfect match for us!

My wife and I am very fortune to have Andrew Sole as a drum teacher for our twin boys. Our boys have been taking drum lessons from Andrew for two years now. His teaching skills and care are main reasons why our boys enjoy his drum lessons. We highly recommend Andrew's drum lessons to all. Thank you, Andrew!

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.

Ted is a great instructor. He is a very skillful drummer and he teaches at a pace that pushes the student but isn't unrealistically challenging. He is willing to craft his lessons to the musical tastes and inclinations of the student.

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.

Having never played drums before, Mike had me hooked minutes into our session. He is extremely passionate about not only drums but teaching and seeing you progress. Couldn't be happier.

Greg Essig is a very intuitive, creative and patient individual. His skills musically, stretch outside of drumming, so his musical approach is a broader look, into how one can develop their drumming/percussion palette. Learning from Greg, has been a joyful challenge. He pushes you to stretch yourself, while encouraging you in thoughtful ways. His experience of growing up playing in bands, studying at one of the most recognized jazz programs in the country and touring professionally, makes him a sound choice, if you are looking for private instruction. I have watched Greg interact with students of all ages, and he finds ways to quickly adapt the training to maximize your personal growth. I for one, can say I am a better drummer, because of his musical influence in my life, and I am a professional touring drummer myself. I have played with many "big names" in the industry, and Greg is one of my "go to's", for inspiration and education.

    Mr. Jason Costabile was gracious to write a great indoor percussion show for Revolution Indoor Percussion's second year (first competitive year). The show was called "Mime Your Own Business" and it was written for (and tweaked) to the skill level of our ensemble. Mr. Costabile was prompt in edits and put together a great first Indoor Percussion show. Additionally, Mr. Costabile helped us out as we were in a pinch with finances, so he wrote the show for us at a fair price. In other words, he was great to work with, very friendly, and reasonable. I look forward to working with Mr. Jason Costabile in future endeavors and I am certain he will continue to produce quality compositions.

    Frank is the best choice for great music lessons, I had him as my drum instructor for around 3 years. He taught me everything I know now and helped me build a foundation to be a great drummer. I Highly recommend him to anybody wanting to learn how to be a great musician and have FUN at the same time too!!!

    I have studied drums and percussion under Matt for over a year now and can say without a doubt his patience and dedication while teaching keeps me motivated to better myself as a musician.

    About

    I've studied drums with some of Europe's and Chicago's finest drummers. I can help you develop your technique, timing, feel and style on the kit at a pace that is perfect for you. No matter what your experience is, I will give you my best effort to help you grow as a musician.

    About

    I have played drums for 40 years and was in the music industry. I worked with Buddy Rich, L. Bellson, and G Krupa. In the area of rock, I have worked with Kansas, Alice Cooper, Rush, Chicago, BS&T, and many more. I teach a standard practical method but also apply what is being taught, so that the student understands theory and develops taste. In this way, they will get invites and earn spots at auditions.

    About

    We love what we do !!

    About

    I'd say that I stand out because I'm somewhat younger than other teachers but well experienced already. I am more up-to-date on the newer styles of drumming but have also taken the time to learn the classics such as jazz and shuffles.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
