About Joel

Hi! I have been teaching for over seven years and am no stranger to the stage. While majoring in music performance at the University of West Georgia, I performed with jazz ensembles, guitar quartets, and percussion ensembles. I also performed many solo classical guitar recitals. The only thing I love more than performing, is teaching and sharing music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons generally include three parts with content depending on your level of experience: technique, repertoire, and theory. I am an enthusiastic although laid back teacher, however I do push my students in order for them to realize themselves as a musician. I like to have fun with lessons because music is fun and I enjoy it. I hope you do too!

Joel has been an EXCELLENT teacher! He is perceptive and very good at reading his student. He knows how to make them feel comfortable with whatever level they are at. He is extremely patient and encouraging. Joel knows how to inspire his students. The time in the lesson flies by quickly and the student walks out feeling very good about their progress, anxious to practice what they have learned and looking forward to the next lesson.

About Hallie

Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument, but never knew where to begin? I can help you learn your instrument, and learn how to play the music that you love whether it be flute, piccolo, violin, viola, or cello. I can help you enjoy music.

Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old, and later joined the high school band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to take this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the Prague Film ...

To describe Mercedes in one word: "Awesome!" She is very patient and encouraging. I started taking singing lessons later in life and have always been very shy about it. Not only has she helped me to break out of my shell, but she is extremely knowledgeable and I have learned so much. She has been gifted with this wonderful talent in music and voice and I am truly blessed to have her as my teacher.

She is wonderful! She really knows how to reach children which is that she has such a gentle soul. She welcomed us strangers to her home and opened my son up to several types of music he never thought about before. We are leaving the area which is why we had to say goodbye. She is absolutely meant to teach.

wonderful teacher

Mercedes is an enthusiastic and patient teacher! My children have only been taking piano lessons from her for less than 6 months, but there is a significant improvement in their abilities already. She encourages them to play with feeling, never overwhelms them with too much work, and is always so upbeat at the lessons.

She is Cuban, so sometimes you have to listen carefully, because of her accent, but she speaks English well.

Chrissy is always punctual and professional. After just three lessons I am seeing great improvements not only in my daughters guitar skills, but her confidence as well. She is also working with my husband. He is enjoying the lessons and is inspired by observing her rip out some rock tunes.

About Richard

I am a professional guitarist with a master's degree in music performance. I have recently moved to this area after decades of playing, writing and recording in the Toledo-Detroit area. I have been an adjunct professor of music for the last 10 years at Adrian College and Jackson College in Southeast Michigan.

I've always taught guitar throughout my long career, but when I received my master's degree in 2004, I began teaching guitar at a local college and in my private studio.

I am a member in good standing of the American Federation of Musicians.

I would welcome an opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to your growth in your musical career.
