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

With a BM in Vocal Performance from Grand Valley State University in MI and a MM in Voice Performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts (in progress) I have plenty of professional experience to share with my students. I am experienced teaching all ages and all technical abilities and I specialize in classical and musical theater technique. I especially enjoy working with beginning students, teaching them fundamentals of good singing technique, including breath, tone, resonance, and song repertoire. I also like to work with students who are preparing for collegiate auditions, competitions or other performances.

*** Lesson Details ***
You should expect to receive my undivided attention for the period of time you are purchasing from me. I keep detailed records from our lessons; including break through moments, terms and concepts that work for you, and notes on your progress. By doing this, I can help tailor each lesson to your individual needs.

You can expect my help working on repertoire either of your choosing or that we pick out together. If you come to a lesson at my home, we can sit down and discuss music that you would like to perform and we can either find it on my computer or I will have it for your next lesson. You can also expect that my apartment will be clean and a comfortable temperature for your lesson.

You can also expect me to play warm ups and the right hand of most pieces you will be singing, less complicated pieces I may be able to play both hands. I do not claim to be a pianist but I have connections for pianists should you need an accompanist for competitions or performances.

*** Studio Equipment ***

About Me

Hello! I am a 25 year old professional guitarist. In May of 2014 I will have graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, with a degree in jazz performance. While my degree and formal training has been in jazz, I love to play blues, rock, pop, and pretty much any style, as long is the music is good! I first started teaching about 5 years ago, at a small lessons store in Missouri, where I had a great time teaching lessons until I moved to Boston in the fall of 2011.

My teaching philosophy is completely based on my own experience of learning the guitar. I often hear music teachers telling students what they "should" or "shouldn't" be practicing. This is something that you will never hear from me. When a student is having a problem, 99% of the time I have gone through the same thing! In this case, I will simply explain to the student how I overcame that problem myself, and what I tried that worked, or didn't work. I like to really get to know my students, what their goals are, what type of music they listen to, and what type of music they want to play. Since I personally never spent much time practicing music that I didn't like, I can't expect my students to either! For this reason, is very important to me to find music to teach that the student is excited about.

If you have any other questions for me, please let me know. I look forward to meeting you!
