Experienced Guitar/Piano Music Teacher Located on Chicago's Northside in Rogers Park Area

Methodology

My lesson plans are geared toward the individual interests of each student. However, each student will learn from me how to play music with and without sheet music. Often sheet music can be unavailable to the student, and show I give them the tools to play music by ear.

Background

As a performing musician, I have 10 years experience teaching both piano and guitar (private/group) lessons. I teach my students how to both read music and play by ear in addition to music theory. You and your child will find me to be reliable and patient with excellent communication skills.
