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.
Great instructors, very friendly. Sam was the best drum instructor. I learned a lot in a short time.
My daughter has been taking drum lessons from Dave for over three years. Her percussion skills and love of different musical genres has continuously and vigorously grown. Dave is always upbeat and professional during the lessons and his visits are an important part of our week.
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!
Outstanding! I love Kenosha Conservatory of Music and my lessons!
We cant say enough abiut Eric. We have had an amazing experience with Eric. My ten-year-old son has learned so much and is so inspired by Eric during every lesson. Eric really knows how to work with kids and keep them interested. Not only is he an amazing instructor, but he is a rocking drummer himself. We will continue to take drum lessons with him as long as my son stays interested.
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 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.
I got to Taylor's class every Saturday, and have a great time! We learn to play each drum part of a rhythm. It is part history lesson and carrying on tradition of the song. In his class you can drop in and be able to play with no experience necessary! I think everyone should try one class, because you might be surprised how you like! you get to go away with worldly knowledge from a worldly man who has patience and fun all in one!
Frank is the best choice for great music lessons, I had him as my drum instructor for around 3 years. He taught me everything I know now and helped me build a foundation to be a great drummer. I Highly recommend him to anybody wanting to learn how to be a great musician and have FUN at the same time too!!!
Very professional and extremely competent. Excellent with small children. Would highly recommend.
I have studied drums and percussion under Matt for over a year now and can say without a doubt his patience and dedication while teaching keeps me motivated to better myself as a musician.

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.
