"To the point...
Matthew is very good at knowing where you should start. Instead of pulling out basic rudiments from the start, Matthew had me play my set
first. It was then he got a good understanding where I needed to start.
Matthew is very laid back, allows you to progress at your own speed, and always makes sure you got your lesson(s) before he leaves...
I would recommend Matthew to any drummer wanting professional instruction."

"Expert Piano Instructor
Dr. Li has expert knowledge in teaching piano, and really devotes a lot of time and energy to improving her students' skills. Wit
h our son, she has done a great deal of work improving technique and building his understanding of music theory. She encourages kids to grow, to stretch and achieve higher goals. It's an excellent approach to teaching piano."

"Learning so much
My voice instructor is the best in all areas. She is developing me into a skilled singer. Lorna is teaching me how to use all of the tec
hniques and exercises into my everyday singing ministry. For instance, before I stared taking lessons with Lorna I always had a problem while singing in the area of going from the low register to the high smoothly, and being able to sing on my palate. I am pleased with her abilities to teach and bring out the best in an individual."

"Blown Away Parent :)
My son (5 years old) is currently taking piano with Mr. Thai. He is not only learning the piano but music theory and has found such
a spark in himself that I absolutely am blown away by. He is now interested in composing his own music and singing:). Mr. Thai's dedication and passion for music really shows at every practice. He is extremely thorough and professional. We are so blessed to have found a teacher to match with our son's passion and our expectations. Completely satisfied... Thanks Mr. Thai ! : )"

Bijan is an excellent instructor. With whatever you are going to learn, he knows what he is doing. Even though I only took cello
lessons for a short time, he taught me so much with each lesson. He is worth the money and you will learn so much."

"Ricardo's approach to teaching piano is simply excellent.
Ricardo's knowledge of the piano is clearly evident. He is a courteous and polished individual
who devotes focused attention upon the student. He is patient and offers very constructive recommendations that have helped my development. Ricardo is an excellent teacher who I highly recommend. If you want to learn how to play the piano, take your lessons from Ricardo."

Do you wish you or your child could just sit down and play ? Are you an adult who always wished you could play or sing? Have you written some great song lyrics and just need help with the music?
SONGLab is a professional studio and a teacher/producer passionate about helping singers, keyboardists, songwriters, kids & adults who just always wanted to play...
Children don't learn to read before they can talk. So why should anyone have to try to read before they can play?
That is how music has been taught for many years, and why a huge perc
entage of students just quit or have a miserable time with piano lessons. Music should be fun. Period.
It has been said that playing only from sheet music is like only being able to talk when you are reading it from a book.
We play by ear & use recording to help you find your own voice. When you find your voice, the rest of you is not far behind. Study here in town or anywhere in the world with lessons online.
First, we find out how you learn and what you are interested in. Life is different when you get in touch with the music inside you. Sure, it is some work, but it is very satisfying! I love to help people do this!
Everybody loves music. How will you find yours? It’s different for everyone. Maybe you want to sing like that great pop singer you love, or play keyboard. Some people write songs. In all cases, the keyboard helps you to understand all about music.
SONGWRITERS: If you write songs, just bring in an idea and we will record it. We set a tempo and a key, and get your basic groove looped, all in about two minutes. Then we lay down the chords and a bass part and you sing a reference vocal. You can easily lay out a song in a one-hour session. Then it is easy to see how to produce it. It is amazing to go home with a recording of your song that did not exist in the world until you gave it a voice!
Along the way, you become a better writer, singer and/or keyboard player. You will learn to play by ear. And have a LOT of fun. You can do this online too.
ONLINE SESSIONS You create a rough sketch and we track it, with your input. We can help you to set up your own songwriter studio as well. If you get Logic software at your end, you can put on phones and cut a vocal with me producing you.
Did you ever have musical ideas, write them down, figure you had songs inside you? Well let’s go find them!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: “...an amazing instructor...inspiring mentor...compassionate.” “...a lot of patience.” “My son's love for music has come from Randy.” “...positive attitude and friendly personality.” “...wildly entertaining.” “ ...will teach you in a way that will make you want to learn.” “We look forward to our lesson every week!”
"Randy, I like your "Semper Method of Music” teaching method. It's applying knowledge with fun, and common sense... the best combination. Good luck. You’re a great musician." Joe Messina, Motown recording guitarist & Funk Brother
SONGLab Your music. Instantly. We use recording as a powerful tool to help you listen and improve. Tired of crappy tabs? Struggling to capture your song? No worries. Learn a process, instead of a lesson. Apply it anywhere.
Go from musical idea to music, fast. Get to the groove in 2 minutes or less. In any software.
SONGLab Studio. The antidote to rote.
SCHEDULING: Please note: If the particular time you had in mind is listed as unavailable, don’t worry. Between my two locations, I am very flexible and will work hard to make our schedules click.
SPECIAL NEEDS? Everyone's needs are special. If your child has been diagnosed ADHD or as a "Sensory kid", music can be a joyful and rewarding way to see real growth and make a wonderful experience for parent and child. We help with the Proprioceptive and Vestibular senses in a fun and therapeutic way.
Just Google "BrainVolts" for a tremendous study from Northwestern University on the amazing effects of music study!
Playing by Ear Pretty much everyone can play by ear. So we help you to find your own voice, 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.
Since a very young age I have loved to improvise and to create music. It is very satisfying to pass this on to others who are full of music inside but may not know how to get it out. If you wish that you or your child could get some help creating your own music as well as playing the great music already written, perhaps we should be talking.
I am from Canada, and I have been a professional musician since 1970. I studied music performance in school, piano with the Royal Conservatory of Toronto and Music Education at Queens University. I have toured with national acts, produced dozens of recordings of all kinds and played, arranged and conducted music on cruise ships all over the world.
Music is my life. Bringing other people's skills to a higher level is what I do best.
Tell me what you want to accomplish, either for yourself or your child. I look forward to speaking with you. Warm regards, Randy
PS: A note about allergens: I teach at my home and at my studio. At home we have a very friendly dog and a cat (Julian) who sleeps all day. If you have allergies, we will study at my Troy studio which is allergen-free. Unless you love animals. In that case, you will get to meet Vinnie, the most kid-friendly, loves-everybody, most gentle little guy you will ever meet. I put his picture up so you can see him.
Teaching teachers Several excellent teachers I know who have been teaching music for many years were frustrated by not being able to play without a sheet of music. They have found satisfying and positive results from this approach.
Wouldn't it be great to be gifted? In fact... It turns out that choices lead to habits. Habits become talents. Talents are labeled gifts. You're not born this way, you get this way. ~ Seth Godin
*** Lesson Details *** Children don't learn to read before they can talk. So why should anyone have to try to read before they can play?
That is how music has been taught for many years, and why a huge percentage of students just quit or have a miserable time with piano lessons. Music should be fun. Period.
My only real job is to make sure you have fun and want to learn more. Then you will do the rest. you will astonish yourself and everyone around you!
In a traditional music education, reading the works of others is the focus, with no encouragement to improvise or to play by ear.
Bach used to improvise all the time. Why shouldn't you?
In our community, there is a prestigious, private college prep school that charges just under $80 per hour for traditional private music lessons. If you take away the music, most cannot play a note.
My method is every bit the equal of that school for those who are drawn to express themselves playing by ear. You will still learn all the core skills needed to be a well-rounded musician.
Music study helps people young and old to overcome shyness and build confidence. It empowers them as they refine their special talents.
We will always have a lot of fun, but there is a lot to do, so we need to be efficient. My teaching method is a combination of the best methods I have found. It is backed up with the same solid principles that I received when I was a student myself. If you choose to continue and pursue a classical education at a high level, you will be well-prepared.
Please note: You are most welcome to start with 30 minute sessions to see if we are a good fit. 30 min lessons are offered for this purpose and also for very young children with short attention spans. For any student, wishing to make progress, lessons will eventually need to be 45 minutes at minimum in order to reach your goals.
Though you'll receive serious critiques from me, I always uplift and encourage. Positive energy is the ticket.
My Method: Listen, Sing, Clap, Play, Read and Write. With these tools you can look deeper into the elements that make up music. Folk, jazz, pop, rock or classical; all Western music is derived from the same principles. We will study ear training from a wonderful ear training book by a famous guitarist. It'Âs simple: you learn all the theory so you will be at the top of your game, but always have fun doing it. For notation, we will use The Semper Note Speller. For scales, we have the famous Brown Scale Book.
Technology We use recording as a tool to help you hear how you sound and we always encourage you to express yourself with improvisation. In many cases, you will have tracks to practice with. We also use apps for your phone that really help. A guitar tuner to nail down vocal pitch, as well as a metronome app that is with you wherever you go. If you have a minute anywhere you can get in some good practice time. So we truly have the best of all worlds: playing from music and learning to play by ear! If you stick with it and do the work, the end result will be that you can always just sit down and play, whether or not you have any music in front of you!
On our first lesson we will do a duet jam session together and you will not believe how great you sound!
The Big Picture Although a percentage of students may become a concert pianist, there are a multitude of other ways to become involved with music. Whether you are looking at music as a profession or as a hobby, we let parents know of the many choices available so that they can make good decisions, for themselves and for their children.
Having fun as you improve is a big priority. I also teach songwriting, singing, music recording and performance, as well as piano.
Remember: A piano should be an irresistible invitation, not an obstacle.
*** Studio Equipment *** Troy studio: A digital keyboard in a professional recording control-room environment at our media production studio. The studio is near Big Beaver and Stephenson Hwy.
Home studio: An acoustic piano and recording studio environment at my home in Franklin/Beverly Hills.
Your Instrument If you are taking any kind of music lesson, we recommend a tuned piano or digital keyboard, preferably with at least 76 full-sized keys.
We have helped many people to find the right piano. If you like, I can suggest several different models of keyboard that I have researched and of which I approve. They range from an inexpensive but effective starter keyboard for ear training and just plain fun to an 88 note weighted keyboard for more expressive practice.
*** Specialties *** I teach people of all ages first to play by ear and to have fun while they study. Then I back up ear training with solid theory so they can read and write music. In school I studied many traditional methods and I have distilled my own distinct method from them. Though I am classically trained, I specialize in improvisation.

Randy is an excellent teacher of both piano and voice. I really enjoyed each lesson and learned a lot from him. I would highly recommend Randy to those wanting to learn, really learn, to play.

Updating my previous review. After 5 sessions, Randy has been able to give me the exact kind of tips and techniques I was hoping for from a teacher; with much more to come I'm sure. For several decades I had neglected any music skills I may have had as a child - even steering clear of a piano or keyboard for fear of someone asking me to sit down and play. I'm confident those fears are waning and will be gone in short order under Randy's lead.
Glen S. July 1, 2016

I think we might have potential.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
Daniel says thank you , you are a great guy.
Glen and Daniel
I have worked for over 30 years as a professional accompanist and musician in the greater metropolitan Detroit area. I have earned several degrees, which include a Bachelor of Music Performance in Organ and a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Music both from Wayne State University. My studies included wonderful instructors. I have studied extensively with Albert Fillmore for ten years, Mischa Kottler for four years and Robert Conway for five years. The last two instructors were from Wayne State and also played with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. I have studied organ with Ray Ferguson
who played with DSO as well and I have studied voice with Marjorie Gordon, coloratura soprano. With over 30 years of experience as professional musician, I am confident that I possess the qualifications needed to make a difference and an impact in the lives of people. Most of my career tenure has been with the Detroit Public Schools. I have worked at various levels in Pre-K – 12 schools but the longest has been twelve years at Cody High School. I have enjoyed coaching the students and working with the music staff at the Cody Complex. These students are very talented and eager to express their creativity and musical ability. I am a seasoned musician with sight reading, transposing and improvisational skills. I used these skills to work with children and young adults in small groups, larger groups and individual coaching in preparation for festivals competitions and auditions. I would like to continue providing this service to the young people within the Greater Metro Detroit Area. Music is an important part of youth development in math and English. It also helps to produce character and leaderships skills of discipline, teamwork, commitment and pride. I've also done the same for my private piano students, in studio as well as in a corporate setting.
*** Lesson Details *** I am a diligent instructor that possesses intuitive goals, almost from the first few lessons! I am always encouraging, and give modest yet helpful criticism. I insist on teaching and developing the fundamentals in private study, ie, standard concepts and music theory. In three months time, the student will know whether we are a good fit, whether or not they like my instruction, and discover their unique abilities as a result of my facilitation!
*** Travel Equipment *** I expect the student to have an acoustic piano, or a full-sized weighted keyboard, if not full-sized, then a keyboard consisting of 76 working keys!
*** Specialties *** I am a classically trained musician. I am also a church musician. My other styles do include pop, jazz, oldies, gospel and contemporary christian music. I start with the basics before moving to any other styles of music.

Music Performance ·
Cheryl came by our Church Music Ministry in Detroit, and demonstrated her great music skills, dexterity, singing excellence, and versatility on both Organ and Piano. Her many years of experience make her an outstanding choice for professional music training. Her congeniality warmed the hearts of our Choir members and others she encountered.
I have been teaching guitar and piano for many years in the Metro Detroit area. I have played professionally in many local nightclub and wedding bands as well as having toured with Bob Seger as his lead guitarist/writer/vocalist. I also have done some recording sessions with Motown. I take great pleasure in mentoring, training and equipping students with the necessary skills to achieve at the personal and/or professional level according to the students interest and desire. I tailor my teaching methods according to the students ability and musical preference and can teach anything from class
ic rock to pop, classical, oldies, jazz, etc. Many of my students have gone on to play at the professional level and one, in particular, has become a music professor at Berklee School of Music. In addition, I have aided students who have a desire to incorporate vocals while playing their instruments as well as giving personal assistance in songwriting.
*** Lesson Details *** I am very easy to get along with during lessons, however I can provide extra encouragement and motivation the student needs based on their individual goal for taking lessons whether it be for personal enjoyment or for the purpose of making music their career. I believe that learning music can be fun even as a serious venture, therefore I incorporate humor when appropriate. The curriculum I use includes Berklee, Mel Bay, and Alfred's Methods for guitar and Schaum and Thompson Methods for piano. Additionally, I invite students to bring in their favorite CD's whereas they can also learn from the music that interests them. This is helpful to develop a good ear as well as sparking motivation to practice as they learn from their favorite musical artist in addition to learning the fundamentals of the instrument.
*** Travel Equipment *** I would provide music method books/sheet music. Students would need to own their own instrument. I provide Guitar amplification.
*** Specialties *** Berklee, Mel Bay, Alfred's guitar method's. Schaum piano methods. Pop, rock and jazz styles.

I have 17+ years of experience teaching guitar in both private and ensemble settings and 20+ years of professional performance experience.I have a degree in Music Performance. My average student has taken 91 lessons. I encourage students to inquire about their potential teachers professional training, performance experience and the teachers student retention rate as these are the criteria by which teachers should be evaluated. My motto is the success of the teacher is determined by the success of the student. I also specialize in Bollywood Music. Below is a list of transcriptions that I
