About Alicia

I received a bachelor's in Music at Adrian College in May, 2013. I have been playing violin for many years and have performed with several orchestras including the Adrian Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed for several weddings, benefit events and recitals. On top of performing, I have been teaching lessons for five years and really enjoying working with my students. It is really rewarding for me to see my students improve and work to achieve their goals. Sharing my passion for music, especially violin, is my goal as a tutor and I look forward working with new students!

Kathryn E. Ferndale, MI

About Kathryn

I am a singer with over 10 years of classical training and have been teaching voice for several years. I have performed in opera, oratorio, musical theater, jazz, folk and Irish ensembles. I can teach repertoire in French, German, Italian and Irish Gaelic. I can also teach beginning piano which is great for some of the younger students who aren't ready for full voice lessons and want to combine both.
I have years of experience singing professionally. I have been lucky enough to tour North America, Asia and Europe with different Irish groups form small bands to performing 8 shows a week in the touring company of the Broadway show Riverdance.
Singing is a huge part of who I am, I have been doing it since before I can remember and I love sharing what I have learned with my ...

Marc M. Livonia, MI

About Marc

I teach all styles of guitar, as I have been in many different types of music situations: Soloist (Classical) Ensemble (Classical and Jazz) Lead and Rhythm (Various Rock and Roll bands) Songwriting and Recording. I am a people person that learned the guitar from many different sources. Most of my learning came from watching others and communicating with others. I like to learn about the people I am teaching so that I can better understand their needs as a musician. My education came as a practical necessity in order to get better as a teacher and performer, as well as make a living doing it. But, by no means do I preach the need to be "educated" but only to be a working, practical musician. I will surely go over the need to read music once the need becomes evident, enlighten ...

Marc is wonderful with my enthusiastic 8 year old son. From our first contact with him, he freely gave advice for beginners as we looked for an instrument and continued to help us with everything we needed to know. He was always encouraging and inclusive with the planned jam sessions. The lessons were the perfect balance of a fun hang-out vibe and focus on technique... and a little gum bribe :)... whatever works! We were very lucky to find such a great teacher.

Whatever you need in the six string, guitar arena - Marc delivers! From rock to classical; from insights on music theory to quick and easy/just play around the camp fire type chords. Whatever level of interest you have, genre or style you want to play, Marc is the teacher you are looking for!

Such a wonderful experience!

I took lessons with Marc over the summer, and it could not have been a better experience. On top of being an amazing teacher (for someone with no prior skill), he was also very considerate, made the lessons extremely enjoyable, and was really flexible anytime I needed to change plans. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, especially if you are just starting out!!

Michael S. Eastpointe, MI

About Michael

For 3 years, excellence has been the core value in my teaching. I give the courage and confidence to all my students that they can conquer and accomplish their goals in music if they remain focused, determined, and eager to learn. All of my music lessons are done in a fun, engaging environment that is very different from sitting in a classroom listening to lectures for hours on end. I make the student feel as if they are already in the drivers seat as the musician they desire to be. With my dynamic music training, students will walk away knowing that they are ready musicians, preparing to wow the crowd with excellence. Why would you want to go elsewhere when you have the best musical success system right in front of you?
