Tuesday R. Detroit, MI

About Tuesday

I have been singing and playing piano all of my life. I took my first music lesson I was just three years old I never looked back! After high school I earned my Bachelor of Music Performance and my Master of Music. I attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. It was in Louisiana where I began my teaching career, about fifteen years ago. After returning to Michigan, I began teaching K-12 music in both public and private school settings. I currently maintain a private studio in addition to teaching voice part-time at two of local colleges. *** Lesson Details *** I emphasize a standard classical approach. I thrive on good, solid technique. This will enable students to master any type of music they wish to study.

Marc M. Livonia, MI

About Marc

I teach all styles of guitar, as I have been in many different types of music situations: Soloist (Classical) Ensemble (Classical and Jazz) Lead and Rhythm (Various Rock and Roll bands) Songwriting and Recording. I am a people person that learned the guitar from many different sources. Most of my learning came from watching others and communicating with others. I like to learn about the people I am teaching so that I can better understand their needs as a musician. My education came as a practical necessity in order to get better as a teacher and performer, as well as make a living doing it. But, by no means do I preach the need to be "educated" but only to be a working, practical musician. I will surely go over the need to read music once the need becomes evident, enlighten you as to ...

Marc is wonderful with my enthusiastic 8 year old son. From our first contact with him, he freely gave advice for beginners as we looked for an instrument and continued to help us with everything we needed to know. He was always encouraging and inclusive with the planned jam sessions. The lessons were the perfect balance of a fun hang-out vibe and focus on technique... and a little gum bribe :)... whatever works! We were very lucky to find such a great teacher.

Whatever you need in the six string, guitar arena - Marc delivers! From rock to classical; from insights on music theory to quick and easy/just play around the camp fire type chords. Whatever level of interest you have, genre or style you want to play, Marc is the teacher you are looking for!

Such a wonderful experience!

I took lessons with Marc over the summer, and it could not have been a better experience. On top of being an amazing teacher (for someone with no prior skill), he was also very considerate, made the lessons extremely enjoyable, and was really flexible anytime I needed to change plans. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, especially if you are just starting out!!

I am beginner at playing the piano, and Nic is an awesome teacher because he's patient and any improvement - no matter how big or how small - Nic recognizes and compliments the achievement. He really breaks things down so it's not overwhelming for a beginner, and he allows me to learn at my own pace but he does challenge me to learn. I've learned to know which keys are which, how to place my fingers on the keys and how to relax and play with both hands. I highly recommend Nic as a piano teacher.

Nic can relate to the child's ability level and instructs them as such. He is very reasonably priced; flexible which is immensely helpful if I have to chance a lesson; and comes to the house - another bonus.
I recommend him.

Joshua genuinely cares about how I'm progressing and learning. The way he has broken down the basics so that I can get a better understanding of the drums is something no other teacher has done. He has an innate feel for what it is that you need to improve. Even after a few lessons , I see a great difference and my approach has changed, for the better. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is excellent!!

My daughter was lucky enough to learn from Joshua when he was an assistant director for the Percussion Scholarship Group in Chicago. Joshua is an amazingly talented musician, and he constantly displayed his passion for teaching and imparting his knowledge to anyone at any time. He has an incredible rapport with young students and has my full recommendation.
