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’ve been taking violin lessons from Clete for 1 ½ years as one of his adult student. His teaching style has worked very well for me in that his critiques are concise and to the point, and he demonstrates how to make beautiful sounds with it. For each week’s assignment the amount is just right, with one or two particular areas to make improvement. Violin is not an easy instrument, and yet Clete doesn’t make me feel discouraged during the learning process.

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.

I was looking for a short term cello teacher for my 11 year old daughter while her regular teacher was on summer break. City Strings and Piano responded right away and sent a teacher to my home working with the days/hours I preferred. Victor, the cello teacher, was fantastic! He only had four lessons to work with my daughter on her seating audition pieces. She arrived at the audition feeling confident and well prepared! Victor was punctual and extremely helpful in describing the mood of the pieces..explaining dynamics and bowing techniques to improve her playing. He was very patient and friendly...using a bit of humor to engage my daughter and make her feel at ease. I would highly recommend Victor and City Strings & Piano! Loved the convenience of a professional, highly qualified teacher coming to my home!

We worked with Regina to play our wedding in June 2014 and, while she came on the recommendation of a friend, we had no idea the wonderful experience we had in store. Regina came to our house to review our choices, offer suggestions, and essentially reassure us that she had everything under control. Her professionalism and charm were evident from the onset. Regina’s expertise helped guide us through the somewhat overwhelming task of selecting just the right works to accompany each moment of the day. Regina was confident enough in her knowledge to steer us away from pieces that would not necessarily be best represented by a single violin and piano. We were even able to present her with last minute changes by which she was completely unfazed. Our wedding took place at theWit Hotel in Chicago and the beautiful elegance Regina added as we said our vows, greeted our guests, and celebrated at the cocktail reception, was the perfect touch to this most important day! As with most events for which you spend months planning and sorting out each minute detail, the day came and went in a whirlwind haze. However, every compliment from friends and every iPhone video has served to reaffirm what we already knew. Regina was the perfect choice for our wedding and we cannot recommend her enough!

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.

    I've listened to Lauren play several times now, and watched her interact with people. She is fantastic at working with groups, or as an individual to help make your event unique and memorable. It's no wonder she gets call backs from churches and symphonies to play again and again. If you're looking for the right sound for your wedding, service, or event, or a great violin teacher, Lauren is pitch perfect!


    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!


    Thinking about picking up a violin as a hobby? Or have you been playing for a while and would like to be more challenged? I was a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago’s violin section. I received a Bachelor of Music from Korea National University of Arts and a Artist Diploma from University of Cincinnati. I have been part of a variety of music performances, including piano trios, string quartets, and professional chamber orchestras. With my education and experience, I am able to provide violin lessons to all ages and all levels.


    I am a current member of the DuPage Symphony and have 20 years of playing experience. I was initially educated in the Suzuki method at both Western Springs School of Talent and Community School of the Arts in Wheaton, followed by pre-conservatory study with Drew Lecher and Nan Zhou. I use a combo of Suzuki and traditional methods, customizing to the student's individual needs and heeding Dr. Suzuki's philosophy at all times. I am also a trained baroque recorder player who has studied privately and taken guest lessons and clinics with nationally-known recorder experts as Vicki Boeckman, Lisette Kielson, Rotem Gilbert and Leighann Daihl. I take violin students ages four and up and recorder students ages eight and up, either through Alleluia Lutheran Church in Naperville or privately within the student's home depending on distance. Please feel free to contact me via Thumbtack for more details, and thank you for considering me to be your violin 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.
