My name is Joy Rdzak. I have over 25 years of teaching experience to all ages from 5 to 105. I started my business in 1989 teaching private piano and voice lessons in the Norwood, Chicago area in Illinois. Then in 1996 I had an opportunity to travel with my husband and 3 children to live and teach private piano and voice lessons in Cluj Napoca, Romania for 8 years. Then went on to teach piano and voice for 4 more years in Gdyina/Gdansk, Poland. Returning to Illinois I settled in Champaign, Illinois in 2008 and reopened my business. Come join Notes Of Joy Music today. It's never to early or late to try something new. I make learning fun and enjoyable. Each lesson is private and designed to fit your personal need.

My Musical Influences
Teaching all ages for over 25 years with getting my student's involved in recitals and competitions. I'm involved in churches providing services for weddings and funerals, clubs and women's groups in the community as well as in schools and colleges around my area.
I started my piano lessons with Joy in 2012. My husband signed up for me because he knew I would never do it on my own. I am now 62 years old and I love the way Joy teaches. She always has a smile on her face and if you do not have time to practice, she understands and helps you with your problem areas in a song during the lesson time. She has helped me work through a lot of pieces that were frustrating me but she is so patient that she puts me at ease and gets me through the difficult areas of the piece. I am so glad that my husband found Joy because she is the kind of teacher that cares about her students.
I'm a senior in high school, and I have taken lessons from Joy for around 7 years. I love every second of my lessons with her. She is such a fun, enthusiastic teacher who genuinely loves what she does. As a student in high school, I don't have a lot of time to practice outside of my lessons, but Joy is always understanding and encouraging in all of my endeavors, whether it be related to piano or not. Joy uses a piano curriculum that not only teaches you how to play the piano, but also makes you fall in love with music. My experiences with Joy have been nothing but fantastic, and I couldn't recommend her enough!
