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

Having an instructor who is an exceptional musician is important, but even more so is finding an instructor who can see you clearly, your strengths and where you can improve; where you excel and where your frustrations thrive. The best instructors know when to push you and when to give slack, and always expect the most from you.I am one of these teachers. My experiences range from classical training and performance, to math-rock bands in dive bars, to songwriting and directing, to African percussion. You will find in me a well rounded teacher who knows how to give you the specific set of tools you need to grow as a musician, and as a human. E ... View Profile

I have been in love with the art and skill of musical composition and related topics since forever.  I've always done/will do every thing I can to help sincere and serious students to succeed in becoming more adept.   My efforts as an arranger began in junio high school -- middle school's the US equivalent-- in eastern Canada.  I started composing music (i.e., putting musical ideas together to make up songs) a few years after when I was a high school senior in Illinois. Learning to actulally write my stuff down -- which is not the same composing -- came more slowly (painfully, even) after I started formal study.  It w ... View Profile
