I don't ever write reviews for anything, normally because I'm just too lazy :)
This guy deserves a good review. He's passionate, extremely knowledgeable, and exactly what you would want in an instructor. I'm still learning and very new to piano, but I'm glad I chose Randy over the many other options. No instructor is going to do the hard work for you, that's your job. A good instructor will motivate you and keep you on the right path, this is the guy.

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. :)

A great teacher!

Bill is one of those rare guitar teachers who have both an incredible amount of musicianship and talent and a genuine passion for passing that knowledge on to students. He takes educating his students very seriously and it shows. I've been taking lessons with Bill for the last couple months and my playing has gotten so much better. I'm very excited to see where we can take my playing in the future.

About JOSEPH

With my Bachelor's/Master's Degree and 14 years of experience in education, it will be an honor for me to add more to students. *** Lesson Details *** Music study helps people young and old to overcome shyness and build confidence. It empowers them as they refine their special talents. We will study ear training . My Method: Listen, Sing, Clap, Play, Read and Write. With these tools you can look deeper into the elements that make up music. Children don't learn to read before they can talk. So why should anyone have to try to read before they can play? That is how music is taught, traditionally and why a huge percentage of students just quit or have a miserable time with piano lessons. Music should be fun. Period. We will always have a lot of fun, but there is a ...

My first experience has been very knowledgable. I thought he was very professional by not starting our lesson until he has fully introduced himself and shared to me his experiences. He was organized and gave me homework to practice. I am looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you

About Tom

I have been teaching guitar and piano for many years in the Metro Detroit area. I have played professionally in many local nightclub and wedding bands as well as having toured with Bob Seger as his lead guitarist/writer/vocalist. I also have done some recording sessions with Motown. I take great pleasure in mentoring, training and equipping students with the necessary skills to achieve at the personal and/or professional level according to the students interest and desire. I tailor my teaching methods according to the students ability and musical preference and can teach anything from classic rock to pop, classical, oldies, jazz, etc. Many of my students have gone on to play at the professional level and one, in particular, has become a music professor at Berklee School of Music.

About Nancy

I have been teaching for over 30 years. I love to teach students of all ages. My education is classical in nature and this is how I approach my lessons, but I also mix in current music that is of interest to each particular student. I have also been a church musician for over 40 years. I studied with the Dr. Perkins, Head of the Music Department at Eastern Montana College, now Montana State University, Billings. I have also studied with Dr. Peggy Daugherty, a concert level pianist. I am currently taking classes to obtain a Certificate in Piano Pedagogy.

I am Desiree' Grandfather, and I must say in these past couple months, I have witnessed a true piano master instructor at work. Nancy, is very thorough, patient, friendly and non-threatening. She skillfully applies just the right amount of pressure to get the desired results; even the environment is conducive for music. I was just an observer but if I had to rate Nancy, from 1-10 (1 being the lowest), she would receive a Resounding 10.
Jim J. Rochester, MI

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 teaching

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.
