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 :)

David was very patient with my ever-changing schedule and was able to make songs seems easy. He was able to boil down complicated drum skills into simple steps so that every lesson I felt like I was advancing. Sad he's no longer in NYC!

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.

I found Eric through a friend of a friend and love him. My 12 year old son has been taking lessons from Eric for about 6 months now and really enjoys it. I never have to remind him to practice anymore. Eric is reliable, always on time and enthusiastic every time we meet.. My son can't wait for his next drum lesson. He really seems to be learning a lot.

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 have taken about 10 years of guitar lessons with Matt. He was recommended to me by Guitar Center. When I started out, I knew nothing about playing the guitar, and over those 10 years I learned more about the guitar than I could have ever imagined. Matt is patient, and knows anything you could ever want to know about playing the guitar. I wasn't always the easiest student, but Matt was always a complete professional. I will always be thankful for my ability to play the guitar, and Matt is the only reason I know as much as I do. I would recommend him to people just starting out, and people looking to improve their skill.

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.

I was looking for a private viola teacher to help with my 5th and 6th grader to keep up their skills over the summer. I got very fortunate to find Ms. Codruta and my kids have excelled under her teaching. We have had 10 lessons so far and my kids have grown exponentially and are super excited to show their orchestra teacher how much more advanced they are. Additionally, I am very impressed with Ms. Corduta’s flexibility with scheduling, which has helped with my family’s busy schedule. Last- she is very positive and knows how to challenge the children and get the best out of them. I would highly recommend her for private music lessons.

I have been taking piano lessons for 5 years, voice lessons for 9 months and flute lessons for 6 months at Music Makers...For Life, Inc. As an adult with prior music experience, I had certain ideas on how I wanted my lessons,and Theresa was very willing to accomodate my wishes. She always tried to work within my schedule as well. Theresa was always kind and patient with me and always made me feel good about my music and myself! I'm also impressed with how her school is structured for kids. They earn "music money" if they've practiced their lesson or land on the right square on the board game the teachers use to reinforce their teaching. Then they can spend their "music money" in her "music store" on small toys, or t-shirts, tote bags, etc. This really motivates the kids to want to practice! Older kids might be invited to join one of her rock bands, which perform around the county. Playing in a rock band helps to keep the teens enthusiastically engaged in their music! Music Makers...For Life is truly "The Fun Way to Learn to Play"!

My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.

My son has been taking lessons from Greg for about 8 months. He has made great gains and really likes Greg's style of instruction. It is great that he can come to our home and my son can learn on his own drum set. He is flexible when scheduling conflicts arise and always makes sure that my son gets a full lesson! We are very happy with Greg and I highly recommend him If you are looking for a quality, personable instructor!

The staff at Rockstar are easy to work with and friendly. I am an adult who takes guitar lessons. My son takes drum lessons and my daughter takes guitar lessons. Rockstar's instructors work well with kids and adults. The facility is clean and constantly updated. There is a clean bathroom and a comfortable waiting area. Their instructors are also working musicians so their lessons are applicable to real life experience.

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.
