At the age of four, after watching a group of children playing their violins on the television show, “Sesame Street”, I became inspired to learn how to play the violin. Since that time I have studied violin with Daniel Vega-Albela, Dr. Joseph Koob and Renata Knific. In 2006, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Studies. During my undergraduate studies, I learned beginning jazz guitar and improvisation from jazz guitarist, John Riemer. Leading up to my attending WMU, I had participated in Master Classes with Sally O’Reilly, Dr. Barry Ross, Stephen Clapp, Benny Kim, Katie Lansdale, David Barg, and Ronda Cole. I was a member of the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony for five years and I was the concertmaster during my senior year. I also won the ...

I think music is a gift. Something that if pursued, can make for a long and rewarding journey. My love for music started in third grade with piano and soon progressed to the trumpet and finally, after high school, to guitar. I studied both classical and jazz guitar at Indiana Wesleyan University and had a brief stay in Nashville where I toured and studied songwriting. My musical experience has included jazz bands, classical voice and instrumental groups, church bands, as well as international instrumental instruction. Every musician's story is unique and I love the opportunity to help other musicians on their journey. **Lesson Details** I think that when starting out with a new teacher the first lesson should be free. The first lesson includes getting to know the student's ...
I am a recent college graduate from a small liberal arts college. I majored in Spanish and Sociology but have extensive experience with English, Literature, Grammar, Writing, and more. I am also TESOL certified, have over 3 years of Spanish tutoring experience, am a member of the National Spanish Honors society, and have spent a semester living in Chile. Lastly, I have been playing flute since the tender age of 8 and have even had the amazing honor of performing at Carnegie Hall. It took a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve that dream and now I want to help you achieve your dreams, too, whatever they may be!
Hi, I'm Warren! I have a a bachelor's degree in music performance at Western Michigan University where I studied with Professor Bruce Uchimura. I have taught cello students throughout my time in school at Western. I am a good motivator and have a welcoming personality. It's very important to me that my students feel confident that they will make the progress that they need and want. Discovering along with the student that they are capable of much more than they thought is one of the most rewarding things about teaching for me. One of the most important aspects of my teaching that I most value is that I want my students to be creative in the ways that they learn and practice. The more they can come up with solutions to their practice the better they will be able to learn outside of the
I work with students of all ages and am very passionate about the violin. I teach music theory at the same time as playing the violin. I have 11 students at Marshall music but would like more. The youngest student I have currently is 5, the oldest is 23. I am 20 years old and have been playing for 9 years. I studied violin performance at Grand Valley State University with Gregory Maytan, and the Suzuki method with Jim Butler.
