About Irwin S.

I am a dedicated, talented and enthusiastic music instructor. I love sharing my knowledge on the joys of making music with my students. I teach because I want to teach. Not because I have to teach. The disciplines that I have acquired through my music have helped me in all areas of my life, and I love the idea that I can share some of those lessons with other people. I love seeing a child's eyes light up the first time they play a song or grasp a concept. I enjoy working with adults whose life long ambition has been to learn to play an instrument, and have finally found the time for their studies.

Guitar, Piano & Ukulele Instructor
Jan 2014 - Present
Silbernik Music Academy
I majored in piano and instrumental music education at DePaul University and the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. While studying at De Paul University, I played Timpani for the De Paul University Symphony Orchestra, which regularly performed in Chicago's Orchestra Hall. I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Illinois in 1974 and my Master's degree in Music Education a year later, in 1975. I taught instrumental music (band & orchestra) in the Champaign/Urbana school systems while working on my Master's degree. After receiving my degrees, I ran the music programs for a small town in western Illinois. This included band, orchestra, chorus, general music and private instrument lessons. After teaching in public school systems, I went to work at Karnes Music Company in Des Plaines, Illinois as a guitar and piano instructor. In addition to my teaching experience, I have years of experience playing in various venues in the Chicago area. In 2014, I founded the Silbernik Music Academy in Highland Park, IL., and am now using my educational and performance experience to teach students of all levels.
