Our Approach to Jazz Lessons
Jazz is known as America’s classical music, and it’s our privilege to teach aspiring musicians like you to play this unique style. We implement a flexible teaching approach that prioritizes your individual needs. Whether you plan to pursue a professional music career, audition to join a school ensemble, or simply play for your personal pleasure, we teach you the fundamental tools and techniques you need to master jazz and achieve your goals.
Jazz Lessons for All Ages
Jazz music is an entertaining and emotional language that speaks to your body and soul. While it’s true that jazz relies heavily on improvisation, you first need to know how to play your instrument and understand fundamental music theory before you can become a true jazz player.
That’s where we come in. We give each of our jazz students a solid foundation in music theory, playing techniques and jazz appreciation. When you know and understand chords, scales, pitch collections, rhythm, harmonies, progressions, and your instrument, you’re better prepared to play swing, use bent and blue notes, and participate in call and response patterns. You can use your intermediate and advanced skills to master America’s classical music.

“My 9-year old son and I both take lessons at Schaumburg Academy of Music. As an adult learner with no musical background I was nervous about how difficult it would be to learn an instrument, but our instructor Nadiya has made the experience easier than I was anticipating. She is very patient with both me and my son and is very knowledgeable about everything she has taught us to this point.”
