About Glenda
After studying at Cass Tech High School and Wayne State University in MI, I have enjoyed teaching privately, in groups, and at churches, I have performed vocally and instrumentally throughout the US and in 8 foreign countries, and taught at public, charter, and private schools. It is important to tailor each lesson to a student's individual needs and ability to ensure that their experience is as rewarding as possible!

About Chenyu
Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile :)

Every 7-8 months, I host recitals for my students to perform in front of family and friends. Parents loved the previous recitals from May 2016 and January 2017. This gives students the opportunity to display their talents and hard work in a formal setting. Recitals are optional, for all instruments, and will be held at the Piano Place in Troy.

I have a Master's degree in Social Work and love building relationships with clients and empowering people. I currently still take piano & drum lessons from accomplished music teachers to continue learni
ng techniques to pass on to my students...I believe a great teacher never stops being a student.

**I no longer travel to students' homes for lessons, so please choose the option to take lessons at my apartment/studio. Thanks!**

I look forward to hearing from you,
Chenyu

Hi, everyone! I think each of us is different, but we have the same goal to learn how to convey all the beauty of us into art that we do.If you are looking for the teacher who will teach you basics or master your voice or even, give you a professional advice on your singing, she is right here. You will feel that your singing is improving from the very first lesson. I did and I highly recommend you Viviana, I think everyone can become the top-rated singer with her help. Plus, she is just incredibly fun to be in the classroom with. Thank you for everything you are doing for us!

I love Viviana!! She makes you feel very comfortable throughout the entire lesson. She tries to help you relax if you've had a long day and to loosen up and prepare for singing. The lessons are always very fun, full of lots of jokes, yet very productive and helpful as well. Amazing instructor!!
