I've performed on and off Broadway as a pianist, and on television in many familiar shows. I've worked professionally as an arranger, vocal coach and orchestrator.

About John

My job is to get your child crazy about the piano. If you have to nag your child to play, something is wrong. The basics are, of course, important, but until you have gotten the child to accept and love the piano as an object of enjoyment, all that practicing will go nowhere. How do I do it?

John has been teaching my 6 year old daughter for 3 months now and not only has he done a tremendous job gauging her abilities and teaching her but he has made it so much fun she wants to play the piano all the time.
Janet S.
John's biggest strengths are his patience, understanding and seeming endless facility with music. I read music but not fast enough to allow me to play good pieces, so John translates everything into physical movements. This makes it very easy to play interesting music, which makes me want to play more. I think he has shown me how learn, how to refine things so they are satisfying. I highly recommend him as a teacher, for beginners or advanced.
Heather S.
My son is six years old and has been taking piano lessons with John for six months. John is a unique and engaging teacher. His extensive knowledge of music and skill at the keyboard were apparent from the beginning. He can easily demonstrate a multitude of songs and then teach them on the spot. My son is excited to play a "whole song," be it Sponge Bob or Beethoven. John's teach-by-numbers technique appeals to my son's love of numbers and patterns yet he is also quickly learning how to read sheet music. John really is skilled at disguising a lesson on technique or theory as a game. He is goofy while at the same time encouraging and supportive of my son. He keeps it light, fun, and skill appropriate. Since he comes to our home, I also appreciate John's focus on the lesson - he arrives and departs in a timely manner. I highly recommend John as a piano teacher.

I have been playing guitar for 15 years. I make lesson plans based on each individual, so I don't teach every one the same boring songs or use the same regiment with everyone. I want to teach you what YOU want to learn.

I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time.

I specializing in the beginner/intermediate guitar student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.
I try to concentrate on having a fun and rewarding experience making the preference of learn to play songs rather than teach theory and scales. If the student prefers a more academic approach, i can accommodate, but I find the students have a better experience when they can pick up and play more quickly.

About Rick

I have been playing guitar most of my life and studied the instrument with many well known musicians. I currently play in a cover band that specializes in mostly 70's and 80's rock and roll. I hope to share with you my love of the instrument and my experiences with music over the years.

I am able to to teach music theory from the very beginning up until post-tonal theory. I specialize in teaching beginners with basics like recognizing all key signatures/circle of fifths, solfege, reading in different clefs, intervals, triads, and different types of scales. However, I am an experienced tutor in many levels of theory and can most certainly be of help for homework assignments and creating exercises to understand different concepts.

About Ellen

I am an undergraduate senior at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor studying piano performance and philosophy, with strong passions for critical thinking, piano pedagogy, chamber music, and contemporary music. I recently won top prizes in the Jacqueline Avent Concerto Competition at the Sewanee

Ellen is very thorough in her teaching method, while being super encouraging and patient! She incorporates elements of music theory, technique, and musicality naturally throughout the lesson. On top of that, I also like her ability to customize her teaching approach to help me accomplish my goals!
Bridget
Ellen is great at teaching both my daughter and myself. Very friendly, personable and understands the piano and classical repertoire at a high level. She’s really helped me with my fundamentals and music theory. My daughter (who is much better than I) mainly studies classical music with her and I love to hear her progress. Ellen is warm and accommodating and I’d recommend her to anyone!

His teaching environment is professional, the exercises we work through have helped me immensely, and he records many of our lessons for me to use as feedback. I look forward to my lesson with him every week."
