About Me

Hey there! I'm excited you dropped by my profile. I'm even more excited that you are thinking about taking music lessons or are planning on giving the gift of music lessons to a loved one. A little bit about me so you can understand how my teaching benefits my students: I went to DePaul University in Chicago,IL and studied Music (voice) and Religious Studies. I have been teaching guitar and piano lessons professionally for three years, however, I've been teaching on and off again for over ten. Through that time I've taught diverse groups of people, all with different skill levels. No matter where you are on your musical journey or who you are, I can help get you where you want to go!I also have extensive experience as a professionally touring musician. I currently front and manage my band The Northern Skies. If you are looking to start playing with a band, professionally or otherwise, I can help you on that path. Remember: it doesn't matter what skill level you are now! I can help you get there!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every lesson should be fun and comfortable! Depending on the students age and skill level, I pick out books that work for each student, and also ask the student to bring in a piece that they want to work on. Maybe we can learn that new radio hit or the oldie but a goodie that you've been wanting to learn for years! However, learning from books or internet videos alone do not offer the kind of one on one attention students need while learning an instrument. I have the experience needed and a unique curriculum that is based off of understanding the student's musical goals. For beginners, I teach basic techniques and chords through easy songs to get the student playing as soon as possible.Learning music has to be fun! I am a very laid back and believe that learning music involves good communication, having an open mind, and the desire to have fun and LEARN! So I can be very laid back while interacting with students and their families. However, learning to play an instrument takes a lifetime of practice. Even the pros practice every day! Therefore, practice is a vital part of taking lessons and something I take very seriously. I hope you will choose me as your music teacher!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teacher's home studio lessons are taught in a downstairs home office/music room. The home includes electric guitars, bass, amps, acoustic guitars, classical acoustic guitar, drum set, electric piano and books. Seating is available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the programming. I expect students to provide their own instrument and to buy the required materials (e.g. book if applicable)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching students guitar. However, I am able to teach a wide range of instruments because of my education and experience as a professional musician.

Hugh D. Grand Rapids, MI

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Trumpet

About Me

Hugh studied music at Michigan State University and later at Wayne State University where he earned a
bachelors degree in Jazz studies and Contemporary Media. He has ten years experience as a Middle School Band Director. Hugh has been giving private lessons to students of all ages for many years. "I've always been a teacher. I love showing others how they can express themselves through music. "

*** Lesson Details ***
Hugh is laid back and likes to have fun during music lessons. He believes that students learn better in a relaxed environment. He has a few favorite beginner books that he likes to use but is open to the students suggestions, too.

Hugh knows from years of experience that starting with familiar music is a great way to learn quickly. Students are motivated to learn songs that they know and love. Most students know songs from the "American Song Book!" This is often a "jumping-off" point at one of Hugh's lessons. A student can learn ANY musical skill by studying a familiar song.

Expect to be performing for friends and family very quickly. Hugh believes that, just like professional musicians, students are more motivated when they have a performance to look forward to. "It's human nature to want to work harder when you know others will be listening!" And when you play for people who know and love you, it relieves much of the pressure of a performance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated music room w/ electric piano, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I'll bring my instrument and my music books. the student should have their instrument, a quiet place to have a lesson, a music stand and their materials.

*** Specialties ***
Pop, rock, blues, jazz, classical & improvization
