I have studied music for fifteen years, and I have been teaching for the last five. I completed my music major at Loyola University with department honors, Summa Cum Laude. Since then, I have directed and written two full length musicals. My mission is to develop the talents within my students to their fullest potential. I look forward to hearing from you.

    "Al Gorney is a very patient teacher who works hard and has a passion for what he teachers. This is not just another person trying to make money but he is a guy that actually cares about your child's future and what is going on in their life. There are many days when he comes for a lesson and that day has been a really bad one. He sits there and listens to my problems giving me advice about issues I may be dealing with. He is a gentleman and doesn't push his way into your business but he waits for you to open that door of communication about your private life. He is a man of God that is doing the will of the Lord not just doing something he has to do because someone told him or he needs extra money. This is his full time job and absolutely loves it. He wouldn't trade this for the world. He is very kind and just asks for cooperation and practice from each of his students. He always looks at the good in people and never talks bad about anyone.

    "Al is a very gifted teacher, he has a teacher's heart, which is to find the best way for each student to learn, whether a beginner or an advanced student. And how to bring the lesson into terms that will help you to do your best, using things that appeal to the age as well as other interests of the student. I am so very blessed to be able to take advantage of his wonderful gift to help me further my piano ability."

    "Al Gorney is an amazing teacher! Every time I meet with him, I walk away encouraged and motivated. He is so patient and understanding. It does not matter what level you are at, Al meets you where you are at and never talks over your head. Such a blessing, and I have recommended him to many people. Whether you practice once (maybe) a week or every day, Al is the teacher for you."

    "Al Gorney has given my daughter piano lessons for almost a year now. I would highly recommend him to others because his zeal and passion is passed on to the learner which makes you eager to learn more no matter what instrument and this has not only taught her how to play the piano but has also helped with her self-esteem and confidence level! Al is such a good teacher that I now have my oldest daughter doing voice lessons. Thanks Al
