Thank you Randy

Randy is my piano teacher. But to say that I merely take piano lessons with him would be an understatement. His title should probably also include inspiring mentor and compassionate friend. His positive energy and hilarious, kind spirit are contagious. He will forever change the way you listen to and feel sounds. He not only helped me creatively express the music inside of me in a way no teacher has before, but even more importantly, he's helped me find my voice and welcome joy and gratitude back into my life. So if you're ready to let go of your nerves and your ego and step into his studio to explore the music that is within you, then this unforgettable experience awaits. :)

Great Teacher!

Randy taught me how to play better from the first day we met. We are getting deeper into theory and I write my own charts now. It has been a blast the whole time.

Awesome Teacher, Very Professional, Super Knowledgeable

I was lucky to have Scott as my first guitar teacher. He took me from a beginner to an advanced guitarist. He is very knowledgeable and makes playing guitar fun, but also challenging. So, if you are serious about becoming a guitarist and or musician Scott is your instructor.

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 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 ...

Very professional and pleasant, but behind in technology

We feel like Karen is a wonderful person, pleasant, and very nice. However, she is rather old fashioned in her teaching, which is fine for some, just not us! Her technology is behind, so learning newer music and practice for newer shows, etc, is very difficult. If we were learning to read music and play the piano, Karen would be great, I am sure.

Too soon to evaluate as I have had a limited number of lessons.
Everything is going well, however, I do have to drive quite a distance to get there, which is a negative.

This has been a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

Karen is GREAT! She keeps my daughter focused and she is getting better with every lesson. My daughter has a a habit of playing to fast and Karen does not scold her for this but she gives her positive feedback and tells her how she is getting better and it has made a big difference.

I am beginner at playing the piano, and Nic is an awesome teacher because he's patient and any improvement - no matter how big or how small - Nic recognizes and compliments the achievement. He really breaks things down so it's not overwhelming for a beginner, and he allows me to learn at my own pace but he does challenge me to learn. I've learned to know which keys are which, how to place my fingers on the keys and how to relax and play with both hands. I highly recommend Nic as a piano teacher.

Nic can relate to the child's ability level and instructs them as such. He is very reasonably priced; flexible which is immensely helpful if I have to chance a lesson; and comes to the house - another bonus.
I recommend him.

Kelly C. Whitmore Lake, MI

About Kelly

Greetings! My name is Kelly and I have been teaching voice and piano since 1991.

My training in voice/singing/performance/Voice Movement Therapy has been extensive and multi-faceted as has my own performance experience. This has enabled me to successfully guide/mentor students who are not only singers of classical, musical theater, pop, folk, and jazz, but also people who use their speaking voices to teach, present and act.

My teaching approach is more holistic in that it not only addresses the technical and physical influences that affect the singing/speaking process, but also the emotional and psychological influences.

I work with ANYONE who wishes to vocally express themselves more freely and authentically, including those who consider themselves to be tone-deaf.

Kelly is a very supportive, knowledgeable, fun and gentle singing coach/teacher. She has many talents and a diverse background which allows her to work with students in a very comprehensive and holistic way. I have worked with other singing teachers and Kelly's working knowledge of the physical body far exceeds my previous teachers. I really enjoy taking lessons with Kelly.

In my two year of working with Kelly I've gone from fragile, terrified whisper-singing to singing alone with clear tone and pitch, a Capella, at an open mic. I still have barriers, but with Kelly's encouragement and advice I've learned to recognize their cause, and I've also knocked many down---I have a set of tools to draw on when my nerves start taking over, and I owe this to working with Kelly and her holistic approach to voice training. Kelly is patient with all levels of ability and purpose, and can deal with multiple aspects of training, from emotional barriers to technical challenges.

I first met Kelly through her Ann Arbor Rec and Ed ‘fundamentals of singing’ class, and a few of us enjoyed the experience so much we decided to continue and take classes as a group with Kelly. I was interested in singing not so much to be ‘good’ as to learn and practice enough to really enjoy singing more again, with an eye to possibly joining a chorus. I’d loved to sing with family or friends in my youth but had little opportunity left to do it. I was petrified of performing, and though I thought I could more or less stay in tune, I didn't think I really had much of a voice behind it.

Kelly knows her stuff technically, she really does, but just as important she knows how to bring out the best in her students. She makes everyone comfortable and is always positive, open, and encouraging, as well as being delightful person to be around! When we first worked with Kelly, all of us were nervous about anything resembling performance, but the supportive atmosphere she creates, and techniques she taught us combined to help us feel at ease singing in front of each other, and eventually audiences – taking measured risks and all the while trying to tamp down our internal critics… I think we have all learned both how to unlock to our own authentic voice and personality in performance, but also to tap into alternate personas in order to deliver all kinds of songs – without any pressure to be ‘right’ or perfect technically, but just to use technique as one piece of the puzzle. She is also very skilled at being able to pinpoint trouble spots, and communicate ways to work around or through issues in very practical terms though too, and suggests useful and personalized exercises for homework. She also guided us tremendously well in group singing and harmony.

About Jim

After much success with playing oboe & English Horn in High School I set out to be a professional musician. I achieve a great amount of success such as playing in the San Francisco Ballet, performing with Pepe, and Angle Romero, and starting to have my compositions performed publicly.
After my first year of college I transferred to the University of Michigan and auditioned for the School of Music Composition Department (one of the top composition schools in the country). For the next 4 years I immersed myself in the multifaceted world of composition. Many of my compositions were performed publicly during this period.
I believe that the teaching of music is a calling to share and explore the techniques and skills that can help a student achieve their own personal goals. I enjoy ...

Jim is a wonderful teacher...patient and understanding with a wealth of information to share. He helped me understand the basics of musical composition, such as intervals, chords, melody, and harmony. Thanks to his instruction I'm now able to bring my musical ideas into reality. Not only did he teach me formal construct, he also brought an innate musicality and artistic vision to everything he approached.
