Howell, MI

About Lisa

***Daytime Special***
I am offering a $5 discount during the hours of 9 AM and 1 PM. This special offer is great for Adult students as well as homeschool families! In order to get this special rate, please contact me and we will make sure the discount is applied to your account.

Lisa studied Classical Piano under Ruth Jones for 13 years and under Audrejean Heydenburg at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. Lisa has been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons
for nearly as long. She studied piano pedagogy and vocal music education at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She then taught music at West Highland Christian Academy for K-12 students and Home School Band and Choir for upper elementary students. Along with teaching, Lisa leads worship at Bend City Church and has accompanied for several community plays and student scholarship events.

"I enjoy all kinds of music and really want to share my love of music with people of all ages. My goal is to get people excited to learn and expand their abilities through voice and piano and to prepare future performers and teachers as well."

*** Lesson Details ***
Lisa teaches all styles of voice including Classical, Italian, Jazz and Folk styles as well as Contemporary, Pop and Broadway. She incorporates the fundamentals into her every day teaching style and helps the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study. Lisa teaches the student how to use their voice correctly as well as how to have good stage presence and performance ready ability.

Lisa teaches beginner piano students from age 5 through method books as well as more advanced students in either Classical styles or Contemporary styles. Some students have the desire to be concert pianists or to teach piano themselves, others just wish to play with a band or play songs which they can sing to. Both styles are valuable skills to learn. Lisa will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

You will receive a copy of Lisa's studio policy at your first lesson. You will be required to read over and sign this policy before lessons are to continue.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is in my apartment in a comfortable living room setting. Parents are welcome to wait and listen to the lesson or drop the student off.

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained Piano, Specialize currently in improvising with chord charts or lead sheets. Worship Music.

Voice lessons rely heavily on Broadway, and Show Tunes, but also include Classical, Italian, Latin, Folk Tunes, Classic Rock, Groups, Performance.

I don't know where to begin. Lisa is absolutely wonderful! She's skilled at what she does and really understands children. She wants them to have fun while they learn. My daughter's vocal range has improved tremendously and she's very confident on stage. I would highly, highly recommend Lisa to anyone!!

Barbara C.

East Lansing, MI

About Barbara

An experienced piano & voice teacher who has taught hundreds of students in the Lansing/East Lansing area . Ages range from five to adult. I've coached voice students for auditions in school/community musicals. I've coached piano students for music performances in recitals and solo & ensemble festivals. I am also a Registered Music Therapist who has taught simplified piano lessons to students with special cognitive and physical needs. I have taught in students' homes, in my own home and at music stores. I received both a bachelor's and master's degree in music from Michigan State Universi
ty. I am caring, loving and motivating toward my students. I communicate well with people at all levels. I modify music teaching methods to meet each student's level of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I expect my students to practice daily, bring completed homework assignments in music theory to each lesson, listen carefully and attentively to my instructions, try new techniques, ask questions, and be consistent in attending their lessons each week. I use the Alfred piano methods for children, older learners and adults, along with the Schaum Keynote Speller (Primer and Level One) for beginning piano students. If students are interested in branching off into classical music repertoire, I concentrate on musical selections that they choose from various classical composers. If they are interested in more easy-going, popular music/broadway musical selections, then we concentrate on selections that they choose.
For voice students, I use the Estelle Liebling Vocal Course for vocal technique skills; and I allow them to choose songs that they are interested in learning, whether it be popular music, broadway songs, church music, or more formal styles of music. After 3-6 months, the piano students will have learned all the basic skills in reading music, developed finger coordination and sight-reading skills, and advance to a higher level of piano performance. Voice students will have learned all the vocal techniques, breathing techniques, relaxation techniques, music theory related to reading music, expressive music techniques, and performance techniques.

During the time my son Tyler has been with Michale, his guitar playing vastly improved improved sound and techniques. He is not practicing, he is playing the guitar along with songs that we are listening to. Most of all, Tyler has gained confidence in school (grades improved) social interactions have also been effected in a positive manner. Thank you Mike for your time & lesson structure that have stimulated these changes!
