My son has been learning the drums with Mr. Ryan for almost 5 years. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher! Mr. Ryan is kind, funny, patient, and knowledgeable. I don't think you could ask for any more in a teacher! Due to the pandemic, we've shifted to online learning for the past year and it has been such a blessing to be able to continue our learning. Without skipping a beat, Mr. Ryan has created an effortless way for students to learn online. We highly recommend lessons with Mr. Ryan. It's easier now than ever!

"I've always enjoyed singing since I was a kid, but my stage has always been the car, kitchen, or shower, maybe an occasional talent show. I always wanted to take singing lessons but never got around to it. My sister surprised me this year for my birthday with 5 singing lessons with Stephanie and I couldn't have been more excited. In those 5 sessions I learned a lot about breathing techniques, my singing range, how to produce the right sounds from the right places. I'm not planning to try out for the Voice or anything, but what I learned has really resonated with me and feel like I enjoy singing even more now. Because even though it's just for fun, I feel more confident in how I sing. Stephanie is incredibly caring, kind, and truly has a passion for what she does. So whether you are looking to professionally train your voice or just up your carpool karaoke game, I give Stephanie my highest recommendation!"

Best Violin Songs to Practice by Genre: Rock, Pop, and Country

Love it or hate it, practice is a significant part of every musician’s life. This is especially true for those learning the violin, as there are many complex techniques and skills one must learn. As every musician can attest, finding the time and motivation to practice can be difficult, especially when you’re used to practicing the same songs over and over again. Rather than bore yourself to death, try switching up your practice plan by adding different genres of music--such as roc …

How to Practice Singing: Practical Tips for Memorizing Lyrics

Need to memorize lyrics--quickly? Take a look at these helpful tips from Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R...   For many people, memorizing words is easier if the words are set to music–that is why songs are often used in education (there is even a song that lists all 50 states!). That being said, trying to memorize a song on a deadline is not fun. Not many people know how to practice singing lyrics effectively, and singers often need to learn multiple songs on short notice. …
