Piano, Singing, Music Theory, Organ
I am a summa cum laude graduate of both the University of Evansville's (IN) celebrated Music Therapy program, with two years of piano pedagogy training and Georgia State University’s Vocal Music Education graduate program. I have performed across the country with an extensive range of professional and student musicians and have served as faculty accompanist with several universities. For over two decades, I have worked as a church musician, directing choirs of all ages and serving as both organist and pianist.
My studios have expanded successfully to as many as 80 private students (from ages 5-90 at both beginning and advanced levels) along with small group classes, and I have taught thousands of students throughout my 26 years of experience as a music educator. I am also the former organist for the National Christian Choir, based in Washington, D.C. and have extensive experience with recording studio work as a vocalist and pianist. I am a former high school choral teacher and recently taught for three years at a Georgia middle school, earning straight superior ratings in all contests and an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall in May.
I love to teach beginners (of all ages!) and also love to coach older teens in their pursuit of success with various auditions in both piano and voice. I am also passionate about training young pianists to accompany! I have just transitioned to Michigan due to my husband's new position in Detroit. I have three daughters: twins who are a violist and cellist and a daughter studying veterinary medicine. I am a music teacher at The Grosse Pointe Academy and am the Artistic Director of the Detroit Children's Choir.
My music education philosophy can be wrapped up in two words: individual musicianship. I truly believe and have experienced the truth that all human beings are capable of producing and understanding music and, therefore, must be given maximum opportunity to do so. To ignore development of musical intelligence is to fail as educators. Therefore, my goals for each student are individual and comprehensive, wrapped in hope and rooted in encouragement. I aim to create a safe, warm, fun and caring atmosphere in the learning environment.
Piano, Singing, Music Theory, Organ
I have experience teaching both beginning and intermediate piano and beginning voice. I enjoy working with students of all ages and helping them develop as musicians. I am patient and understanding and believe that students need to feel comfortable with a teacher to optimize the learning experience.
I studied private piano into my high school years and studied organ and voice in college where I was a vocal soloist. I attended Concordia College, Ann Arbor, Mi and received my BA in Music Education from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa
I have accompanied both Middle School and High School Choirs and instrumentalists, played organ and directed church choirs. I currently play organ in two churches and direct a Middle School Choir Chime group. I enjoy working with students in large group settings as well as one on one. I have been teaching with Take Lessons for almost two years. Sharing music is a great joy.
I especially love playing keyboard because of its expressive nature, the soft and loud, the sweetly and the contemplative. It brings me pleasure especially when a challenging piece has been mastered.
Bass Guitar, Guitar, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting
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 you as to why it may be important to understand certain aspects of music as opposed to just "picking and grinning", IE learning only "By Ear." I do specialize in music theory, and have many students taking lessons simply for this excellent foundation for songwriting also.
I am a classically trained guitarist that performs both as a soloist and for ensemble in a wide variety of styles. I graduated in 1996 from Schoolcraft College with an Associates degree in Music performance, and then, studying under the tutelage of Brian Roberts went on to receive my Bachelor's degree in Guitar Performance with a secondary in Jazz from Wayne State University in 2004. While at Wayne State and along the way I've performed and participated in several masterclasses with renowned artists: William Kanengiser, John Holmquest, Philip Candelaria, Jason Vieaux, Scott Tennant, and Antigoni Goni. I have also completed the teacher requirements for books 1-a and 1-b for the Suzuki Guitar Institute.
Many of my classical guitar and electric guitar students have went on to study further at the collegiate level, some achieving scholarships. My most recent students are current Berklee school of music graduates now in a band called "Flight of Fire", recently opened for Bonjovi this past summer and are getting air time on local radio stations... well on their way to living the dream! …the bulk of my students become full time professional musicians.

Starting at the age of 19, Drew earned his stripes as the percussionist / drummer / substitute conductor for the legendary Motown singing group the Four Tops. While touring with the Tops he also performed with artists including Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Contours, The Miracles, The Dramatics, Chairmen of the Board, Freda Payne, Harold Melvin's Blue Notes, and many more. He has written and produced songs featuring many legendary soul artists including the Four Tops, Funk Brothers, Dennis Coffey, Melvin Davis, Spyder Turner, Pat Lewis, James Jamerson Jr, and more. As a pre-production engineer for Universal/Motown records, he contributed to releases by The Jackson 5, David Ruffin and Jimmy Ruffin, Barry White, and the Cellarful of Motown series. He has written articles for Modern Drummer Magazine, and holds a degree in music performance from New York University. He is the spearhead of the Back To Class project, which features his original music performed by soul music legends, benefiting the music programs of the Detroit Public Schools.
Drew will build a curriculum around a student's specific goals and musical preferences, helping drummers, percussionists, songwriters, and producers to learn skills that will help them to feel comfortable on the bandstand, writing, improvising, and getting gigs. His production experience allows him to teach beatmakers and songwriters how to broaden their tracks through basic music theory instruction as well as arranging concepts and studio techniques.
If you'd like to learn many of the down-to-earth, practical skills and expectations for being a professional in the music business behind the drums, in front of the mixing board, and behind the scenes, Drew is your man!
