About Jerome

I'm originally from Chicago and some of my earliest musical memories was going on field trips downtown to Symphony Center listening to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The beauty and excitement of the changing dynamics of sound sparked my curiosity and imagination which made a lasting impression on me. I knew way back then before I even picked up an instrument that I wanted to be a musician.
My formal musical training started 25 years ago with the trumpet then a few years later I studied drums, voice, and piano. While in college I excelled in ear training and music theory since I applied those skills in composition and performing with various ensembles.

After graduating with a degree in music performance I spent time teaching private lessons and directing high school band programs helping students regardless of skill level achieve short and long term goals.

What makes me an outstanding tutor is the fact that I'm a very patient person and I pay close attention to detail. I encourage students not only to know about a subject matter but also understand it completely so that the mystery fades away. There are times when information is presented in a way that can be confusing but the beauty of music is that we can always look from a different point of view to get a clear idea of the lesson at hand.

I love to pass on what I've learned and hopefully inspire students to continue studying the art of making music. If you have any inquiries about scheduling lessons feel free to contact me. Thanks for reviewing my profile and have a great day!
