Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and t

Lisa
Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

Hello everyone, I look forward to working with you! My name is Dr. Jung, and I play and teach violin and viola. I debuted with the Seoul Grand Symphony Orchestra at age 13 and the Rainbow Youth Orchestra at age 14. Since then, I have gone on to win several competitions in South Korea and completed my education in both the Czech Republic and the USA.

In addition to over 10 years of private lesson teaching experience, I am violin faculty at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan and a violin instructor with the Jackson Symphony String Team.

When I'm not teaching, you can find me performing for the “If Music be the Food…Lansing” series and Camerata Michigan, Cello Plus Series directed by Suren Bagratuni. I was concertmaster for the Michigan State Concert Orchestra and have appeared with several regional orchestras, including the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra, Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra and Midland Symphony Orchestra.

"Robert is a brilliant pianist and teacher

As a father of student I am very impressed with Robert's sensitivity to how each student learns best. He has the valuable skill of knowing when to push and when not to and always seems to find the right way of communicating whatever it is he is trying to teach. Kids require a lot patience and a willingness to respond to them at their level. Frankly, I would find it very difficult to do myself, but his patience seems endless and more than that you can tell he gets great satisfaction from what he does . As a result, my daughter has blossomed into quite a performer with a deep love of music and ongoing interest in learning more."

"My 10 year old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Stephanie for the past year and is absolutely loving it. In December she performed in the music recital and did amazing thanks to Stephanie's wonderful coaching. Stephanie is very encouraging and makes the lessons fun but is also stern when need be. My daughter looks forward to her lesson every week. I also love how Stephanie gets to know her students and encourages them in other activities they do. She came to my daughters ice skating performance to cheer her on and it meant the world to my daughter. We are sooo glad to have her as our daughters voice instructor and look forward to another amazing year."

Mastering the Art of Zen Guitar

Billy Joel once said “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everybody loves music.” Today, we encourage you to think about why you play the guitar.  Dreams of shredding on stage with Steve Vai aside, most musicians would cite the emotional connection to music as a big motivator. Guitar practice, after all, is like a form of meditation; think about it: there's a reason …
