Madison Heights, MI

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!

Michelle L.

Rochester, MI

About Michelle

Music:
I'm studying music education at Wayne State University and I've been teaching students for a few years, but started as a paid teacher in June 2013. I teach basic piano and music reading to young children.
I am both a woodwind and brass player; I started as a clarinet/bass clarinet player, then I switched to horn in high school and have played flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium and tuba. I started as a clarinet player back in September of 2006 and as a horn player in January of 2011. Horn is my primary instrument now, but I also played clarinet and saxophon
e in pit orchestras.
I am an active player in the Wayne State University Bands and Orchestra, while staying an active member of the Rochester College Concert Band. I currently have a handful of trumpet students.

German:
I graduated high school in 2013 with five years of German studies. My senior year, I took Advanced Placement German, and took the test for college credit. I made a friend/ pen pal in 2006 from Germany who has helped me through my years of study. I would love to be able to help those who either need to fill a graduation requirement or are just trying to learn a language and are struggling. I am now pursuing a minor in German.

Other:
Along with studying full time at Wayne State University, I am a certified caregiver. I currently use this certification to work with children with Autism. Children with special needs give me a challenge to teach, but I love the challenge and love the kids.

Michelle is great. Always on time and even when running only a couple minutes late she will let us know right away. Very nice with my 12 year old son. We have been taking lesson with Michelle for almost a year now and we think she is the best! I would highly recommend her for younger kids no matter what playing level.

Chenyu Z.

Madison Heights, MI

About Chenyu

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile :)

During May 2016, nine of the children I teach performed in a recital at Evola Music Center. Parents and families really enjoyed this event so I will host another recital January 2017 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 learning techniques to pass on to my students...I believe a great teacher never stops being a student.

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

I look forward to hearing from you,
Chenyu

We introduced ourselves and planned for what we would discuss in future lessons. However, she did not have her computer with her so we couldn't get into any details so I am withholding judgement until we have had a chance to work together
