I stand out as a private music teacher for the right reasons: excellence, understanding, patience, smiles, results, music, and student enthusiasm. My passion for my students was the midnight-oil burning kind, spending as much as four months preparing for the first day. My students each have different goals. We skip the scales and go right to the music. Wouldn't you? Our success depends upon my ability to know the different styles and approaches, learn brand new tunes on the market, and teach different ways for the same student. I have been teaching private music lessons since 1970 in Mexico City, Texas, Evanston and Skokie, Illinois. I have a ... View Profile
