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.

Kelly C.

Whitmore Lake, MI

I have been teaching beginning and intermediate piano to students, ages 9 and up, since 1991. I primarily use the Faber, "Piano Adventures" series, but do work with those who want to focus more on playing by chords.

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 emoti
onal 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 voice is my primary instrument, I also teach piano to those who wish to learn to read music and those who would rather learn chords.

Kelly is such a good teacher. She is sensitive and empathic as she provides the information needed to introduce this old woman to the mysteries of breathing and singing. It amazes me!

I've never seen someone so knowledgeable about singing. She is a wealth of knowledge and can translate it very well.

I initially selected Kelly as my singing teacher because of her extensive academic credentials and personal singing career. Since taking lessons with her for over 7 months, I have come to really appreciate her non-judgemental attitude and approach to teaching, as well as her creativity, thoughtfulness and insight.
My initial reason for taking singing lessons was to develop my voice to hopefully bring singing back into my life, which had been a real source of joy for me in my "younger days".
After only 3 months of working with her, I had an opportunity to do some public speaking and was quite surprised at how confidant I felt and how well my voice carried into the crowd, a marked improvement from previous public speaking experiences I have had. After 6 months of lessons, I was able to sing solo in public for the first time in my life with real success.
I look forward to working more with Kelly and her techniques to continue to develop my voice and my range of singing experiences and opportunities. I highly recommend her as a singing teacher. Above and beyond her expertise in the realm of singing and voice work, she makes every lesson pleasurable and fun!

An informative and fun experience! Students will have the opportunity to work on content of their choosing, from classical, blues, jazz, pop, and many other styles. We will work on technique, sight reading, ear training, expression, and more! As I cater every lesson to the student. I studied piano at MSU Community Music School for 4 years, in college for 2 years, and I am always pushing myself to learn more. Contact me for more details if interested!

About Katherine

I am going to be a senior at Calvin College and I am studying Psychology and Music. From first hand experience I know that a good teacher can make all the difference. That's why I desire to cater every lesson or tutoring session to the student, as I desire to make every session an enjoyable, fun, and informative experience! I am a performer and songwriter, and my main instruments are piano, voice, and alto saxophone. I have experience in styles such as: classical, opera, jazz, pop, musical theater, blues, and more! Along with music I have also studied many other subjects at Calvin, such a
s writing, philosophy, and french; all of which I am very capable of tutoring in. There is also no commitment needed prior to the first tutoring session or lesson. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you!
