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 have been taking lessons from Dan for more than two and a half years and it something I look forward to every week. Aside from being a great teacher, he is fun, understanding and very talented. He takes the time to help you understand the structure of what you are learning without over burdening you with theory. He is also really interested in making sure you are enjoying playing (that is the point) and getting out of it exactly what you want. Any time I have a request (no matter how absurd) of a song to learn, Dan takes the time to find a good arrangement at my level and teaches it to me. It is really nice having that flexibility and personal investment in my lessons. In just two and a half years, I went from playing no to guitar to be comfortable jamming with my friends while also developing my classical guitar playing skills. His musical interests are vast; from beautiful classical pieces to classic rock solos to movie soundtracks (he loves Storybook Love from the Princess Bride). This blend of genres and talents truly sets Dan a part and I would encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Dan.

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.

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.

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've taken guitar lessons over the years and Fran is the best instructor, I have ever met. He has the ability to teach and convey theory in a very concise and organized manner. His blueprint process helps you become a better player.

I took lessons through Mclain's mind of music for one reason; to learn how to play "Green Hill Zone" on Piano. Thanks to Kevin, I can say that I accomplished that goal (granted, 2 years after he left but you get the idea.) Because Kevin was my teacher, I've moved on to learning a couple other songs as well (although I could always practice more than I do.) When Kevin was giving lessons in Chicagoland he was the most affordable piano lessons, regardless of if it was hourly or half-hour (short of having a piano whiz for a grandparent who would teach you for free, which I do not.) Improve, I guess a couple times he was 5 or 10 minutes late for the appointment, but that's only because he would DRIVE OUT to the kid's house and be stuck in traffic on the way back (which is totally understandable, considering what an excellent musician Kevin is.) If you take one lesson, you'll feel the same. Young or Old, Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced Kevin can teach you how to play.

    I've been studying with Miss Brown for a few years now. I had always wanted to play piano so when I retired I took lessons with her. Now I'm learning to play guitar. She makes everything easy to understand. I'm learning so much. Really nice and great teacher!

    About

    My name is Brent. I have been playing guitar for 13 years and have had multiple students. I play mostly the blues, rock and folk, but let's play the music you want to play. Your lesson is all about how you want to play and how best to do it. I will provide beginning music theory training as part of our lessons as well. I love teaching and accept beginners of all ages. I am located between Logan Square and Wicker Park in Humbolt Park. I can provide an instrument if needed and am also very willing to travel to you!

    I can teach you great things about the guitar, from the basic learning to some of your favorite songs.

    About

    I am a senior in high school who greatly wants to help others out on their musical journeys. I have experience in bands, ensembles, solo work, etc. I specialize in metal/rock guitar (electric), but I am open to anything, and I will let you know if I can be of assistance. I am very friendly/personable, passionate, easy to get along with yet serious and hardworking. I have been accepted into Berklee College of Music in Boston, and I plan on attending in the near future.

    About

    My foremost objective is to enhance my students' passion for music. I strive to help each and every student improve his/her ability to express himself/herself through his/her instrument. As your instructor, I will always appeal to your musical interests, basing our lessons on what you would like to learn. I will do so by using the knowledge I have gained from attaining a bachelor's degree in music from Bradley University as well as from my years of professional experience in a variety of musical genres. I am seeking dedicated and hardworking students, with a positive attitude, who additionally look forward to the opportunity for musical growth. Music is an unbelievable form of creative expression. My plan on our lessons is staying true to this value by being exciting and enjoyable for each of us. Because if you are not having fun playing music, then you are not playing music.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
