As the only Licensed Simply Music teacher in Chicago, you literally can't get this groundbreaking method anywhere else in the city. My goal as a teacher is to make music a companion to you for the rest of your life. Simply Music's playing-based approach to piano temporarily suspends reading music until you've developed your playing skills at the keyboard by learing a wide variety of musical styles. Yep, that means you can say goodbye to sight-reading 'mary had a little lamb', and instead, start playing great sounding classical, blues, contemporary, and accompaniment style pieces from your first lessons! Once you've mastered some playing skills, we introduce you to reading music in a healthy way and through a rewarding process that is not intimidating at all!
Additionally, improvisation and composition are encouraged and developed with this method, so that you can be free to express yourself at the piano!
Experience the joy of making music!
I love giving students the tools they need to have a strong and deep relationship with music and the piano. Music is such a joy and I am privileged to be able to pass on the love of music to my students.
Rachel is very humble, and has a beautiful style of teaching kids, it's very different from the traditional lessons out there. Our 8 year old daughter loves playing piano now, and we love listening to all the wonderful songs Rachel's been teaching her.
