About Carrie
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 15 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

About Aaron
I am a musician of 20+ years that passionately enjoys teaching and helping students new to music in discovering and developing their skills and aptitude for music. I have performed live on many occasions in contemporary and religious settings. I come from a musical family: My father made an album in 1969 with Bob Seger and wrote nearly half of the music on the album. My brother was a part of a musical group that produced songs that made it to a Hollywood movie. I play multiple musical instruments and can help students learn some of their favorite songs based on their level of skill. I teach out of my home in Sterling Heights, Michigan. My goal is to help students develop an interest in music and an appreciation for the history and development of music. It is also my goal to help students develop their skill in music to a place where they
can become independent in their growth and exploration of music, music writing, and music performance.

You will also notice additional subject areas I am available to teach. These subjects are my passion and joy. Should you have questions, message me and I’ll be happy to answer them.

This was my first ever acting class and Dan has done a great job! He’s really made me understand how to put myself in the moment with repetition exercises. Very laid back and easy to work with but also professional. Would recommend to anyone looking to become a better actor.

Daniil worked with me on preparing multiple callback sides, both classical and contemporary. He is the kind of coach that has the specificity and honesty to push you beyond what you thought you were capable of, and to open your eyes to a new way of seeing your work. Daniil was able to connect my early experience with Meisner training to the sides that I had in front of me, in a way that was challenging but not scary. I left the session with a new handful of tools to prepare for the upcoming callbacks, and a new perspective on what it meant to reach honesty and authenticity as an actor.

Dan is an incredible instructor. His keen eye and ability to coach is a true gift. Dan works in specificity, detail and nuance; I am always a better actor having worked with him. Dan is knowledgeable about the business and offers great advice on agents, managers, type and casting. I highly recommend Dan as an acting coach and a business coach.

About Matthew
I am a part-time online teacher specializing in teaching english as a second language and history. I graduated from Curry College in May 2014 with a B.A. in Politics and History and a minor in English. I subsequently completed a 10 month ESL fellowship in Israel from September 2015 until July 2016. I began teaching online to Chinese students in August 2017 through the company of 51talk and was promoted once during my time with them. Currently, I teach online both through that company though also offer my own lessons which I design and use.

My lessons focus on specific words and how they are used. For example the most common word in the english language is the word "the." My corresponding lesson focuses on basic sentence examples using that word and also offers the student the opportunity to construct their own. I have similar lessons f
or "that," "this," "or," "of," and many others. My ultimately goal is to give the student a basic understanding of the 50 most common words in the English language upon which future lessons can build. More advanced lessons are available upon request.

In addition to English, I am also adept at History. I have always been fascinated with the subject and enjoy assisting others with historical assignments. In addition to graduating with a degree in history, I also gained the Politics and History award of my college upon graduation and studied the History of the Italian Renaissance for three months in Florence Italy in 2010. I am adept at essay writing and historical research.
