David is a wonderful teacher! I had been away from singing for a number of years before beginning with David. The offer of a 30 min free trial lesson was very helpful and I could tell that we clicked. He takes the time to thoroughly explain concepts and theories of vocal techniques in a comprehensive manner. He allows you to ask questions throughout the lesson, and since I didn't have any music to work on, he provided several options. With his superb instruction, my confidence and my voice have returned. I look forward to working with David and I would encourage students of all levels to reach out to him for vocal instruction!

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.

My two sons, 5 & 7, love learning from Mr. Bob! He’s very patient with the kids and talented with multiple instruments (piano, guitar, drums). He holds high expectations for his students, which allows my kids to progress rather quickly. I’ve been very happy with having Mr. Bob as their music teacher; the boys always look forward to going to music lessons.

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 :)

Matt is an excellent instructor, his knowledge includes many musical genres. As a beginning bass guitar adult student without any musical training after only a few lessons, I can honestly say that I see growth in my abilities. I highly recommend Matt!

David has been a great drum teacher for my two kids, ages 5 and 7 (started when 4 and 6). He was very patient with them tailored the instruction to their abilities. I am a semi-professional musician (played in touring indie band) and therefore appreciated David's mix of formal music instruction (i.e. sight reading and annotation) and "jamming" (forming intrinsic feel). Highly recommend David.

Mrs. Reynolds is an exceptional teacher when it comes to singing. I have been taking lessons from her for ten years now, and have grown immensely with both technically and with a sense of musicality. I respect Mrs. Reynolds not only for her own incredible talent, but also for her ability when teaching to pinpoint exactly what you are doing wrong, whether it's a lack of using your diaphragm or improper formation of a vowel, and be able to help you fix it. Mrs. Reynolds is an impeccable teacher, and I wouldn't wish to be taught by anyone else.

Yuen Yee Richardson has been providing weekly piano lessons for my 2 kids since May 2016. Our kids enjoy their lessons with her, have made great progress in their proficiency and are always happy to play a song or two, whether on their own or upon request. Yuen Yee is easy to work with, provides constructive feedback about how our kids are doing, and very communicative. We have recommended her to our friends with no hesitation.

More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.

My 8 year old daughter has been taking voice and piano lessons with Nicolette for a few months now. My daughter progresses steadily and gains confidence from the constant encouragement. Nicolette is assertive as well as upbeat, providing a positive and nurturing environment. Her distinct technique keeps my daughter focused while enjoying every class. I highly recommend her!

I started out with the voice class. I was not a singer at all! Ms. Hill takes students from wherever they are, and works with them. She is so very encouraging. Learning about music in voice class inspired me to take piano lessons, which was something I thought I'd never do! But again she takes you from where you are. I am an adult learner, venturing completely out of my comfort zone. I am also a retired teacher. Ms. Hill demonstrates all of the best qualities of an educator. She quickly evaluates the needs of her students and individualizes lessons to suit their needs. She does so with both children and adults.

Mrs. Cynthia is an excellent music teacher. My 7 year old has taken classes now for the past few years with significant progress. She is wonderful with children and has a disciplined approach that achieves tangible results. There is a good balance between having fun yet being able to have your child focus on the task at hand. I would highly recommend Mrs. Cynthia as a music teacher for any parent that's looking for an activity that is both fun but also enriching to your child as an individual. There are lessons learned in music class that also translate into better focus in school and resulting in higher performance of your child in the classroom. I hope my review was helpful to whomever is trying to make a decision on a music teacher. Regards, I. Bobb

Greg is the best! He is an incredibly talented musician. He is B able to adapt any piece to your abilities. He wants you to play pieces you're interested in. His encouragement was kind, but firm-- which is exactly what I needed. He held me to a high standard that I was eager to meet. He has a great sense of humor, which made lessons fun and stress free. I highly recommend Greg!

I took sax lessons from Max while he was at Oberlin. He cares about his students and their musical growth. He makes even the most tedious drills fun, especially when he plays the material along with you. He's a fantastic musician as well. I miss working with him.

This year, our daughter won first place in the Chicago Chapter National Association of Teachers of Singing (CCNATS)’ High School Division 1 Vocal Competition! At Elizabeth’s suggestion, she also auditioned for the Anima Chorus of Glen Ellyn, and sang a solo with them on WFMT’s Saturday Broadcast of Introductions. Elizabeth is truly an amazing teacher! She explains everything very well and never leaves a question unanswered. Our daughter, Brianna Dulock, has received nothing but compliments from other experienced professionals […] It is impressive how much information Elizabeth can fit into one lesson. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the high quality of your voice lessons, and for giving our daughter this amazing voice.” — Rose Figuero Dulock, Stone Park, IL

Corie was an exceptional teacher for our family. My two young daughters and myself (adult beginner) studied with her for nearly 2 years before she moved out of the area. She was extremely organized, prepared for classes, and patient with my occasionally difficult daughter – showing great care and patience coupled with clear expectations. It was a truly positive experience. Corie is a uniquely gifted Suzuki teacher and performer. She cares a great deal for her students and also has an exceptional musical background. Lessons were well paced, group classes provided practice in performing and overall musical skills. Just can’t say enough good about her studio.
