Ethan G. Plainwell, MI

About Ethan

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 ...

Warren O. Kalamazoo, MI

About Warren

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
