I don't ever write reviews for anything, normally because I'm just too lazy :)
This guy deserves a good review. He's passionate, extremely knowledgeable, and exactly what you would want in an instructor. I'm still learning and very new to piano, but I'm glad I chose Randy over the many other options. No instructor is going to do the hard work for you, that's your job. A good instructor will motivate you and keep you on the right path, this is the guy.

Thank you Randy

Randy is my piano teacher. But to say that I merely take piano lessons with him would be an understatement. His title should probably also include inspiring mentor and compassionate friend. His positive energy and hilarious, kind spirit are contagious. He will forever change the way you listen to and feel sounds. He not only helped me creatively express the music inside of me in a way no teacher has before, but even more importantly, he's helped me find my voice and welcome joy and gratitude back into my life. So if you're ready to let go of your nerves and your ego and step into his studio to explore the music that is within you, then this unforgettable experience awaits. :)

Awesome Teacher, Very Professional, Super Knowledgeable

I was lucky to have Scott as my first guitar teacher. He took me from a beginner to an advanced guitarist. He is very knowledgeable and makes playing guitar fun, but also challenging. So, if you are serious about becoming a guitarist and or musician Scott is your instructor.

Very professional and pleasant, but behind in technology

We feel like Karen is a wonderful person, pleasant, and very nice. However, she is rather old fashioned in her teaching, which is fine for some, just not us! Her technology is behind, so learning newer music and practice for newer shows, etc, is very difficult. If we were learning to read music and play the piano, Karen would be great, I am sure.

Very good

Too soon to evaluate as I have had a limited number of lessons.
Everything is going well, however, I do have to drive quite a distance to get there, which is a negative.

This has been a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

Karen is GREAT! She keeps my daughter focused and she is getting better with every lesson. My daughter has a a habit of playing to fast and Karen does not scold her for this but she gives her positive feedback and tells her how she is getting better and it has made a big difference.

I am beginner at playing the piano, and Nic is an awesome teacher because he's patient and any improvement - no matter how big or how small - Nic recognizes and compliments the achievement. He really breaks things down so it's not overwhelming for a beginner, and he allows me to learn at my own pace but he does challenge me to learn. I've learned to know which keys are which, how to place my fingers on the keys and how to relax and play with both hands. I highly recommend Nic as a piano teacher.

Nic can relate to the child's ability level and instructs them as such. He is very reasonably priced; flexible which is immensely helpful if I have to chance a lesson; and comes to the house - another bonus.
I recommend him.

Kelly C. Whitmore Lake, MI

About Kelly

Greetings! My name is Kelly and I have been teaching voice and piano since 1991. My training in voice/singing/performance/Voice Movement Therapy has been extensive and multi-faceted as has my own performance experience. This has enabled me to successfully guide/mentor students who are not only singers of classical, musical theater, pop, folk, and jazz, but also people who use their speaking voices to teach, present and act. My teaching approach is more holistic in that it not only addresses the technical and physical influences that affect the singing/speaking process, but also the emotional and psychological influences. I work with ANYONE who wishes to vocally express themselves more freely and authentically, including those who consider themselves to be tone-deaf. While ...

I have taken two classes with Kelly through Ann Arbor Rec&Ed and both were great experiences. Kelly is a patient, kind, and fun teacher. She did an excellent job going over the fundamentals, and I learned a great deal in both of her classes. I especially appreciated the helpful feedback she gave me--it definitely made me more aware of those areas I need to work on. I would highly recommend her.

Kelly is a very supportive, knowledgeable, fun and gentle singing coach/teacher. She has many talents and a diverse background which allows her to work with students in a very comprehensive and holistic way. I have worked with other singing teachers and Kelly's working knowledge of the physical body far exceeds my previous teachers. I really enjoy taking lessons with Kelly.

In my two year of working with Kelly I've gone from fragile, terrified whisper-singing to singing alone with clear tone and pitch, a Capella, at an open mic. I still have barriers, but with Kelly's encouragement and advice I've learned to recognize their cause, and I've also knocked many down---I have a set of tools to draw on when my nerves start taking over, and I owe this to working with Kelly and her holistic approach to voice training. Kelly is patient with all levels of ability and purpose, and can deal with multiple aspects of training, from emotional barriers to technical challenges.
