Sandy has done a great job teaching my son. My son was seven when he started learning the bass guitar. Sandy has patience and gives good feedback. My son said he is the best music teacher.
David R. Oak Park, MI

About David

I am happy to offer piano lessons for beginning to advanced students, and guitar and violin lessons for beginning to upper intermediate students. I teach music in all genres, including pop/rock, classical, ragtime, Broadway, country, jazz, and more - whatever you like best.

I encourage students to learn music they are interested in, and to have fun with lessons, while also making sure that they have strong sight-reading and ear training skills, and a solid classical background.

I am a former K-12 Orchestra, Band, Piano, and Choir Teacher. I taught at the Winans Academy of Performing Arts (Detroit) and Madison Academy (Flint). I hold the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Michigan - Flint with piano as primary instrument. I played piano ...

Teacher / Musician / Producer

Playing by Ear
Pretty much everyone can play by ear. So I help you to explore your talent, reach your musical goals and to create and perform music as a real and beautiful part of your life. Making music should not be a boring job. Rather, it should be something you can't wait to do. A way to get in touch with the rest of the universe. You will also learn to read and write, but it won't get in the way of your music.

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. :)

Daughter Loves Class

My six-year-old loves to perform. Randy has been helping her with her intonation, piano playing, performing, and general ear for music in a manner that is fun and successful. My daughter is excited all week to go to her class.

Great Teacher!

Randy taught me how to play better from the first day we met. We are getting deeper into theory and I write my own charts now. It has been a blast the whole time.

Awesome Teacher, Very Professional, Super Knowledgeable

I was lucky to have Scott as my first guitar teacher. He took me from a beginner to an advanced guitarist. He is very knowledgeable and makes playing guitar fun, but also challenging. So, if you are serious about becoming a guitarist and or musician Scott is your instructor.

About Bill

I have been playing guitar for 28 years. I took formal guitar lessons for seven years, have won numerous awards locally and nationally, and have been a professional musician for most of my life. I have studied music theory elaborately, was accepted to both the Berklee School of Music in Boston and the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. I choose to start on a musical career immediately after high school; and did so in my hometown of Detroit. I play/teach, have written, performed, and recorded everything from classic/indie rock, jazz, classical, flamenco, etc. I currently front my own indie rock project "The Static Dial", as guitarist/vocalist/songwriter.

I teach all ages; from very young children (ages 6-8) to adults. Music samples are available here on my profile.

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.

I have experience teaching both beginning and intermediate piano and beginning voice. I enjoy working with students of all ages and helping them develop as musicians.

Very professional and pleasant, but behind in technology

We feel like Karen is a wonderful person, pleasant, and very nice. However, she is rather old fashioned in her teaching, which is fine for some, just not us! Her technology is behind, so learning newer music and practice for newer shows, etc, is very difficult. If we were learning to read music and play the piano, Karen would be great, I am sure.

Very good

Too soon to evaluate as I have had a limited number of lessons.
Everything is going well, however, I do have to drive quite a distance to get there, which is a negative.

This has been a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

Karen is GREAT! She keeps my daughter focused and she is getting better with every lesson. My daughter has a a habit of playing to fast and Karen does not scold her for this but she gives her positive feedback and tells her how she is getting better and it has made a big difference.
