Anne has been fabulous with my daughter. She is a non traditional student, looking to pick up as much piano skill this summer before she heads off to college to pursue a Bachelor of Music in Music Theatre. Anne wasted no time getting my daughter to a place where she is challenged, and has been flexible when we have needed to rearrange times. I'm certain we will be calling on Anne during breaks to keep up with skills learned during her first semester! We so appreciate her willingness to take on a non traditional short term student!

My singing lessons are so helpful

It is a pleasure to have Anne as a teacher for my singing lessons. I am a senior and felt very uncomfortable even signing up for lessons, Anne made me feel at ease and at home.
She is very professional and I am amazed that she can utilize what she has learned and specifically apply it to my needs.

About David

I am happy to offer piano lessons for beginning to advanced students, and guitar and violin lessons for beginning to upper intermediate students. I teach music in all genres, including pop/rock, classical, ragtime, Broadway, country, jazz, and more - whatever you like best.

I encourage students to learn music they are interested in, and to have fun with lessons, while also making sure that they have strong sight-reading and ear training skills, and a solid classical background.

I am a former K-12 Orchestra, Band, Piano, and Choir Teacher. I taught at the Winans Academy of Performing Arts (Detroit) and Madison Academy (Flint). I hold the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Michigan - Flint with piano as primary instrument. I played piano ...

Kathy B. Detroit, MI

I have been teaching piano for over thirty years, both in my home and in Catholic After School Programs. I teach both Beginning and Intermediate students.
I use Michael Aaron Adult Piano Book Grade 1, Michael Aaron Piano Coarse Grade 1 for Theory, Technic, Lessons and Performance books. I also use Music Ace Deluxe as a review on their computer. This is a lot of fun for all my students.
I will go as fast or as slow as the student needs me to go. I tailor make the lessons to my students.

I am a patient, enthusiastic teacher in the following areas: piano, violin, cello, drums, music history, and music theory. I have taught vocal and instrumental music in both Catholic and Public schools, and in after-school programs, for 20 years, and have been giving private lessons for 9 years. I enjoy teaching music to all age students, and especially enjoy watching my students grow in their music ability.

I received my Bachelor of Arts from Marygrove College in Detroit in Language Arts with minors in Music Education and History,and my Masters Degree from Wayne State University in Education with emphasis on English as a Second Language and Sign Language for the Deaf. I have studied Music Education for K-5 at Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan.

Cheryl M. Detroit, MI

I love the piano, outside of singing, playing the organ, it is my favorite instrument. I began the study of the instrument at age six, so I strive to have the student bond with this instrument. It is a reflection of one's soul. I teach note and rote, along with ear training. Rhythm is an integral part of my piano methodology.

Revitalizing the “Rock City” through Detroit Piano Lessons

By Nic. C - Detroit Piano Teacher

It seems as though many Detroit families own a piano; whether a grand, a small electronic Casio or one of the old outmoded Grinnell uprights made here in Detroit. We are a city of music through and through. From the old Motown recordings that helped to bridge racial issues in the time of the civil rights movement, to Bob Seger’s message of hard work and peace, to Kid Rock’s promise of the good life, our city has always had an incredible sense of community based around our hometown music. As a local piano instructor, I used to see this hometown pride carry over into the Detroit piano lessons I teach to students of all ages.

Amidst the tough economic situation our area is facing today, the sense of community that was formed through music is ...
