About Michael
I have been teaching for 41 years and opened 14 music schools. Ages 3-96. Taught and performed
in Michigan, Arizona and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone has the ability to learn. Do n
ot let someone tell you different. It is either the wrong
teacher or wrong method for you if you are having difficulty. It is never the student.
I use many combined methods to fit the individual student accoring to their skill level, desires and overcoming any difficulties. I have two recitals a year and video tape them so the student can see and hear their progress.

In addition to piano I also teach keyboard, organ, improve, stand up comedy, recording, and
ballroom dance ( won grand nationals in tango ).

*** Studio Equipment ***
professional studio seating for parents
yamaha studio stage w/ piano seating for parents
vidoe and audio recording

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need to have an instrument at home.

*** Specialties ***
Each students course is custom designed to ther needs and goals

I've only had a few lessons with Michael, but have enjoyed what and how he has taught me so far. He has been flexible with some changes to our schedule and he is on time.

About Kevin
Hello! My name is Kevin, and I am looking forward to teaching you everything I know about music! I've been singing at Walt Disney World for over 23 years (and I still am currently) with the Voices of
Liberty, the Dapper Dans of Main Street, and Four For A Dollar. I have a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Penn State University. Even more than singing, playing the guitar, arranging for a cappella, and playing piano, I love to teach! Ever since I was a sophomore in high school, I've wanted to be a teacher of music in various capacities. My favorite aspect of teaching several private students each week is that every individual student has a different story: What is it that you want to accomplish? Would you like to sing, play piano, or play guitar? Would you like training in music theory? Do you want to eventually have a career in music? Will this be a hobby for you? Whatever your goals are, I am excited to know your story.

Very reasonable prices and took his time explaining everything so me and my children could all understand it before he moved on with the lesson.

About Rebecca
Hello, and welcome to my TakeLessons home page! My name is Rebecca and I am so excited that you have decided to stop by.

I am a former band director and current elementary music teacher. Teaching
elementary music affords me the time and flexibility to work on a personal dream of mine: to teach clarinet privately to students!

I want to use all of my knowledge to help guide every student to their personal success. I specialize in working with clarinetists from beginning to advanced. If you're looking to start taking clarinet lessons to quickly improve, I am knowledgable in clarinet pedagogy. if you're looking for an extra boost before college auditions, I can help from not only personal experience of the audition process but extensive knowledge in the required repertoire for many universities. If you're looking for help in learning and long range goals for clarinet, I am more than happy to work with you at every step to achieve your goals!

As a public school teacher, I am afforded the training and knowledge on working with students with special needs. Please don't hesitate to contact me to see what we can do for you.

Major clarinet literature that I have performed or am extremely familiar with include:
Mozart, Clarinet Concerto
Copland, Clarinet Concerto
Brahms, Sonata No. 1 and 2
Bax, Clarinet Sonata
Finzi, Five Bagatelles
Rabaud, Solo de Concours
Reinecke, Sonata Undine
Stamitz, Concerto in Bb
Weber, Concertino, Introduction Theme and Variations, and Concertos
Hindemith, Sonata
Hurlstone, Four Characteristic Pieces
Milhaud, Sonatine
Messager, Solo de Concours
Ravel, Piece en forme de Habanera
Schumann, Three Romances, Fantasiestucke
Rachmaninoff, Vocalise
Busoni, Concertino
Poulenc, Sonata
Shaw, Concerto
