Private Lessons In-Home Music Instruction With Mr. Bob

Private Lessons In-Home Music Instruction With Mr. Bob



I provide house-call lessons for guitar, bass, piano, drum or other instrument. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. I teach individual lessons mainly but I like to play music with my students and if they have siblings or friends we can start a band!

I enjoy sharing my knowledge of music with others and playing different instruments with my students and see them increase their knowledge and enjoyment of music.

    I start students with traditonal note-reading, ear-training and other specific material based on their instrument and skill level.

    I have been playing guitar since I was 11. I studied with several teachers and played in the jazz combo and the Jazz Ensemble (Big Band) at Moraine Valley Community College and attended Elmhurst College where I played in many, many ensembles on electric and classical guitar as well as upright (string) and electric bass. I currently play in a band, play musicals and teach private lessons.

    I charge $30 for a half-hour lesson, $40 for a 45 minute lesson and $50 an hour.

    I was studying music at Moraine Valley in 2007 when my guitar teacher at the school who also had a studio down the street asked me to sub for another teacher at his studio. After a couple months of subbing he told me that it was my regular gig and these were my students. He had to close down about 2 years later but I went on to continue teaching at various studios in the area, Music Way, House of Music, School of Rock, Guitar FUN-damentals and also Mi Sol Academy, a private Elementary scool. Currently, I teach privately and gig. 

    I have had and continue to teach very advanced students as well as students with disabilities. I have had studnts of all ages from 5 to roughly 85. Some students come to me as complete beginners with no musical knowledge ot experience and some are already very advanced but in either case we always find new things to learn.

    Find someone you like and trust and stick with that teacher for regular weekly lessons as long as you are able. This is a paraphrase from the great avant-garde composer John Cage.
