About Me

Hello Students and Parents,

I have been playing several instruments since I was very young, and am excited to share my passion for music with you! I have recently graduated from the Michigan State University College of Music, currently teach music at several public schools, and play in local ensembles.

I have been very fortunate to tour the United States as a drummer with multiple ensembles including The Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps, the Michigan State University Percussion Studio, and the Plymouth Canton Educational Park Drumline.

I love all genres of music. Sometimes I feel that I have no choice but to blast my favorite hip-hop or electronic tunes while on the go. Other days, I immerse myself in the exploration of technique and emotion while perfecting some of Beethoven's late piano compositions.

I spend much of my personal time on artistic ventures such as practicing, performing, drawing, playing poi, and going to concerts. The truth is, music is such a diverse art form that the inspirations and opportunities are endless.

Thanks for checking out my page! I hope that we can start making music together soon.

*** Lesson Details ***
We'll take our first lesson easy with a discussion of your musical goals. I'll want to know things about you such as:
Why are you interested in music lessons?
What music do you like to listen to and what music do you want to play?
Do you have any past experience? Or is this a fresh start?
Do you know of any strengths and weaknesses?

After this, we will begin a regiment that is as personalized as possible. My goal is for you to reach your goals while having fun and working hard. My teachers have always told me that you will take from your lessons what you put into your lessons. I am just as happy teaching the laid back hobby musician, as I am coaching the next Mozart who practices nonstop.

My teaching style comes from a variety of influences. I used to be the student of Drum Corps instructors who had the highest standards for commitment and discipline. Now, I myself work with many special needs students who are exploring art as an emotional outlet, rather than a way of getting a trophy. All in all, I will always do my best to insure that you are on the right path towards reaching your goals.

About Me

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 10 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a separate music room in the home with an 88 key weighted keyboard. Guitars and amps. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents. Pull to the back of Freedom Point's Parking Lot to find me !

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

About Me

Hello eager students! My name is Nick and I have been recording and performing in the Toledo area for 12 years. In that time I have put out five studio records including: Strydir Lee, Careless and Free, Acoustics Volume 1, Electric Money Burns, and Phony Cosmic Clues. I have played on a number of local stages here in Toledo and gained a large following on stages in Chicago, Cincinnati and Detroit. I was even lucky enough to perform live on the Mitch Albom radio show! Over the years students and friends have come to me to learn how to play guitar or bass and how to write their own music. So not only will I give you professional lessons but I'll also allow you to record in my studio with me so you can create your own masterpiece! What I can teach is an understanding of music that allows you to create your own and show it to the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
For all you out there who are worried about getting started, come to me! I am a very laid back person who loves sharing his talents with people who really want to learn. We will discuss styles YOU like and the music YOU like and try to focus our time together in what kind of musician YOU want to be. Of course we will learn chords, patterns, notes, scales, key signatures, time and tempos but we will try to adapt them to whatever it is you are trying to accomplish. Throughout the lessons you will be able to record at anytime you desire. This helps in so many ways because students will be able to listen to themselves and hear what they need to work on. They will be able to take CD's of themselves home to play along with and to show their family and friends.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio equipment includes: Peavey Bass and Fender amp, Fender Strat, Gibson SG, Crate Half Stack amp, Boss GT, Behringer preamp and effects, Marin acoustic, Fender 12 string acoustic, Harmonica and Harmonica holder, Vegas Pro 8, Waves Mercury, Wurlitzer organ, Ensoniq Keyboard, Roland V Drums, Condenser and Dynamic mics, Korg D 12 Multitrack Recorder, Lambda Interface, Mackie Studio Monitors, Mach Five software, pedals, headphones, chords and all the other necessities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide: acoustic guitars six string and twelve, electric guitars and amps, bass guitar and amp, and recording gear. I expect the student to have their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
The style that I specialize in is acoustic guitar and composing. My methods are a little different then most because I would have the student in my studio and we would work out songs together including: chord changes, tempo, measures, time signature, key, and strumming patterns. Then, through recording, I would show them how to layer multiple guitar, bass, drums, piano or vocal parts. Essentially they would be learning not just chords and scales but how instruments work together in a well composed piece of music. They would be able to build songs from the ground up and realize how great their music can be. As a singer, I would help them find their voice and build their confidence by working out melodies and dynamics.

Music Lessons in Toledo, OH

Did you know that famed jazz musician Arthur Tatum, singer Crystal Bowersox and R&B artist Lyfe Jennings came from a little town called Toledo, Ohio. Though known for its manufacturing industry, the fourth most populous city in Ohio has also produced a number of talented musicians over the years.
