Barbara C.

East Lansing, MI

About Barbara

An experienced piano & voice teacher who has taught hundreds of students in the Lansing/East Lansing area . Ages range from five to adult. I've coached voice students for auditions in school/community musicals. I've coached piano students for music performances in recitals and solo & ensemble festivals. I am also a Registered Music Therapist who has taught simplified piano lessons to students with special cognitive and physical needs. I have taught in students' homes, in my own home and at music stores. I received both a bachelor's and master's degree in music from Michigan State Universi
ty. I am caring, loving and motivating toward my students. I communicate well with people at all levels. I modify music teaching methods to meet each student's level of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I expect my students to practice daily, bring completed homework assignments in music theory to each lesson, listen carefully and attentively to my instructions, try new techniques, ask questions, and be consistent in attending their lessons each week. I use the Alfred piano methods for children, older learners and adults, along with the Schaum Keynote Speller (Primer and Level One) for beginning piano students. If students are interested in branching off into classical music repertoire, I concentrate on musical selections that they choose from various classical composers. If they are interested in more easy-going, popular music/broadway musical selections, then we concentrate on selections that they choose.
For voice students, I use the Estelle Liebling Vocal Course for vocal technique skills; and I allow them to choose songs that they are interested in learning, whether it be popular music, broadway songs, church music, or more formal styles of music. After 3-6 months, the piano students will have learned all the basic skills in reading music, developed finger coordination and sight-reading skills, and advance to a higher level of piano performance. Voice students will have learned all the vocal techniques, breathing techniques, relaxation techniques, music theory related to reading music, expressive music techniques, and performance techniques.

Adam M.

East Lansing, MI

About Adam

Hello parents/students,

I have been playing bass and guitar for over 11 years. I play professionally in the NWOH/MI area, I studied music at Bowling Green State University and got my Bachelors of Music in jazz studies spring of 2012.

I am friendly, outgoing, and passionate about what I do. I love playing music, and I love talking about music!

I tend to work mainly as a "For Hire" bassist with many acts around the area; jazz, blues, rock, etc.
In addition to local work I have played with major artists Balawan (Indonesia music star, Sony BMG), Mark Kroos (Touring artist, Guitar Play
er Magazine guitar player of the year), and a gig with grammy winners The New York Voices (GRP Records). I also am the house bassist at Blessed John XXIII Catholic Church, I work part time there playing bass in the house band.

In my youth, in Celina, OH. I studied guitar/bass with Matt Speca, a Berklee graduate, and early on he gave me fundamentals that led me to a lot of good things. My next teacher was Mitch Campbell, one of the few jazz guitarists in my small town. He sent me in some advanced directions and taught me about advanced harmony and theory. My next teacher John Fioriello (Eastern University graduate, touring musician) got me prepared for college. At college I studied with renowned bassist Jeff Halsey, guitarist Chris Buzzelli, and NYC recording artist David Bixler. Since graduating I consider all my friends and colleagues my teachers because you always pick things up and you never stop learning.

I love all kinds of music, I love jazz, funk, R&B, blues, rock, reggae, and even classical. Some favorite bands/artists of mine are The Beatles, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Weather Report, D'Angelo, Erykah Badu, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton.... the list goes on & on I hope I can turn you on to some of these artists and I hope you can turn me on to some music you like.

I love sharing the gift of music whether teaching or playing, it's definitely my true love, and my passion. Thank you for visiting my page, I hope you are interested in taking lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
The first lesson I will sit down with you and really figure out what you wanna learn and what you wanna do.

We'll learn plenty of technique, but I like to teach by playing music you like so as soon as we can we'll be playing songs you want to play and songs that I think will help you further your playing. If you want pushed, I will push you, if you wanna lay back and learn songs I will do that. Its what the student wants.

I don't require students to buy any books. I have some books that I may use in lessons, but I won't require you to buy anything although I may make recommendations.

Things you can learn from me:
Chord strumming, advanced chords, theory, music notation reading, improvising, soloing, how to play in a band... anything you want to do I will get you where you want to be!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Amps, keyboards, drums, stands, I got more then you need!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would only expect the student to have their instrument and notebooks.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, rock, pop, R&B, and most styles. Emphasis on playing by ear and playing with feeling. Emphasis on music theory and understanding what you're playing. Also a big emphasis on learning to have fun.

Adam is an excellent instructor. He kept my 9 year old granddaughter motivated from week to week. He made learning "fun" & designed his instruction around the kind of music she is interested in. He kept her challenged with things to practice from week to week. Adam is great with kids and I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to learn or expand their knowledge of guitar. Adam is not only talented, but very personable.

I really enjoyed having Adam as a Ukulele instructor! He was very friendly, professional and accommodating. He went out of his way to find songs for me to learn that were within my ability. I've never played a musical instrument before and he not only taught me the basics of how to play the ukulele, but some fundamental music principals. Adam even took the time to research how to help me fix my ukulele when the supplier I bought it from was no help. He is a very talented musician and is patient with beginners. I would highly recommend Adam if you are looking for a music instructor!

During the time my son Tyler has been with Michale, his guitar playing vastly improved improved sound and techniques. He is not practicing, he is playing the guitar along with songs that we are listening to. Most of all, Tyler has gained confidence in school (grades improved) social interactions have also been effected in a positive manner. Thank you Mike for your time & lesson structure that have stimulated these changes!

Piano Tips and Techniques: Playing Glissandos

There are many musical terms that you will hear when learning to play any instrument, and the piano is no exception.

You will learn new terms at every level, so maybe you have already heard the word glissando. Even if you haven’t heard of the term, you probably have heard a glissando in music. For example, Jerry Lee Lewis’s song "Great Balls of Fire" uses glissandos. Derived from t … Read More
