Clarendon Hills Music Academy Owner Starts New Magazine
Listen to Patch's one-on-one interview with Derek Berg, who owns Clarendon Hills Music Academy and just launched the online Music Coach Magazine.
Derek Berg said that to successfully teach music, you need to have passion and purpose.
Chat with the owner of Clarendon Hills Music Academy about his theories on music coaching, and you'll see he has those two P's.
I sat down with Berg, a 38-year-old Hinsdale native who now lives in Plainfield, to talk about his school, his style as a music teacher, and his newest venture, Music Coach Magazine, a free online magazine he's launching this month.
"We cover everything from music business coaches to music instrument coaches," Berg wrote in an email describing the magazine. "In the first addition we have landed interviews with everyone from Scott Houston (PBS Piano Guy) to Bob Baker (well known author and music marketing coach)."
