About Me

John has been teaching private Piano, Organ, and Keyboard lessons for 37 years. However, in modern times its mainly Piano and keyboard lessons. He began his teaching career with Ortigara's Musicville in Chicago Ridge, where he taught from 1988-2006, followed by Beautiful Music in Downers Grove until 2009. John began teaching lessons out of his home studio in 2003, where he now teaches full-time. One of John's favorite things about teaching today is working interactively with the computer. Students can play along with an "electronic orchestra" (the computer) from their first lesson. For those interested in starting their own studio, John has occasionally given lessons concerning music software.

"John O’Keefe’s piano program is fresh and engaging. As a parent, it was such a joy to find this program because two previous programs failed to interest my daughter. The students have options and access to music they like. The lessons emphasize technical training mixed with familiar tunes and, my daughter’s favorite, the option to use digital accompaniment. We enjoy hearing the full sounds and the ear training that comes in the process. Mr. O’Keefe’s program concentrates on how the music resonates with each student. As a result, the piano recitals are pure entertainment for all – a wonderful blend of music – from pop, to jazz, classical, rock ‘n roll and new age – which not only showcases the piano’s versatility in any music genre, but also the unique artistic expression of every student. Mr. O’Keefe’s gentle encouragement mixed with appropriate expectations instills confidence. I don’t drag my daughter to a piano lesson – she is very comfortable and relaxed with Mr. O’Keefe’s approach and is not discouraged by mistakes along the way." I highly recommend John O’Keefe’s piano program to any parent who wants making beautiful music a joy. Judy

"I've sat in with John while he gave lessons to my grandson, and I was very impressed at his methods of engaging the student. He has a varied background which allows him latitude in teaching the student music that appeals to the student. He has lots of patience, and seems to be always in a positive, upbeat mood when dealing with the students. The prices for the lessons are reasonable, and he teaches close to our home, which makes it convenient. I think my grandson has had a very comfortable, enjoyable learning experience with the piano due to John!" Todd
