Hi, Moms of Oak Park! I'm not a mom yet (my husband and I are approaching our first anniversary!) but I am a certified music educator/pianist and am hoping to start teaching again this summer when we move to the area permanently. 

I have years of experience working with students from age 4-15 and truly love being able to share music with aspiring musicians! If you're interested in lessons for your kids, feel free to contact me:   

I'm more than happy to send along a resume, references (past piano students' moms and my university instructors) and letters of recommendation!

Hope to hear from you soon!!

Hello All,

Our former nanny of 7 years is looking for a job.  She is absolutely wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone.  Please let me know if you are interested and I will provide more information and a reference letter.

Hello all!

I wanted to let you all know of an exciting summer camp coming to Oak Park/River Forest: Steve & Kate's Camp! Campers (ages 4-entering 7th grade) choose activities such as stop motion animation, soccer in an inflatable stadium, rock climbing on a 30 foot wall, breadmaking, knitting with bamboo needles, music recording in custom vocal booths, and pie throwing! There are two ways to play: Day Passes--buy any number of days and use them anytime, or Membership--one fee covers the entire summer.

This will be our 34th summer as a company and second summer in Chicago! We will be operating out of St. Vincent Ferrer Elementary School in River Forest at Lathrop and North Ave., running Monday-Friday 7:30am until 6pm from June 9-August 15!

Visit the link below to learn more about the camp and program, contact me with any questions, and register!
