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 :)
Marlena is the best! Not only is she very knowledgeable and talented, but she is also very nice. She is great at assessing her student's skills and challenges them appropriately. I am a 27 year old former trombone player who wants to learn piano, and I would recommend her for any age and talent level.
I've been taking piano lessons by Ms. Ning for a year now. She is an extremely patient teacher and always guide me to a better understanding of music. Thanks to her, I become more fond of the piano music. She loves to discuss with me about what kid of music I want to play, and not just always follow the lesson book..
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 6 year old has just started violin lessons with Joanna. She is absolutely wonderful with my young beginner. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes learning fun. My daughter can't wait to see her each week and wants to impress Joanna with all she has learned. Great music room environment for learning a new instrument. We are very excited at our daughters progess and we thank Joanna for her wonderful music program!
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.
Cassie taught my 2 kids piano for a couple of years and she was great! Very organized, supportive and punctual. She was patient when the kids were being difficult. We've now moved away to a different region of the country, but we had a couple of great years with Cassie! Highly recommended!
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!
My son has been taking piano lessons from Teresa for 6 years. The method of instruction is so insightful and nurturing. The staff at Music Makers for life are friendly and helpful. Not once in all these years has my son complained about going to piano lessons!
Each lesson I have with Anne Marie is worthwhile. She makes good use of the time, which includes a workable mix of review and new skills, and her expectations for lessons and practice time are realistic. She clearly explains, patiently corrects, and encourages often. Not only is she knowledgeable about music, she is a highly skilled violinist. Because I look forward to my weekly lessons with Anne Marie, I am motivated to practice at home, which is a credit to her. Andviolin lessons are fun!
Ms. Celeste is my son's violin teacher. She is a wonderful and professional violin teacher! My son absolutely loves his violin lessons!
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.
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.
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 daughter took lessons with Manny to prepare for a high school audition. I was very surprised by how serious she took the lessons. His expectations came across as very clear and motivational. My daughter loved her violin lessons and is now playing for her high school’s orchestra!
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.
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!

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 Chicagos violin section.
