Michelle does a great job with my 6 year old son. He has been getting weekly lessons for over a year now, and is making a lot of progress. He also enjoys the lessons enough to look forward to them. I was worried he would lose interest, but so far that is not the case. Michelle makes it fun and provides small rewards and lots of encouragement. I wanted to expose my son to the experience and enjoyment that comes with learning to play music, and Michelle has made that possible.

I was required to take 4 semesters of Classically-focused Functional Piano in college and prove myself a proficient pianist to graduate. I have also played piano for rock bands and worship ensembles for several years.I also use piano on a daily basis for arranging, composing, and teaching.

About Jordan
13 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am a worship leader for Fellowship of The Parks, an on-staff music-producer and session musician at Drive35 Productions, and a passionate instructor.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for many churches including Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos Pointe Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, FUMC Allen, Living Life Church, and Fellowship of the Parks in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under acclaimed guitarists Sam Walker and Billy Robertson. Here,
I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and music-production extensively. I graduated Magna Cume Laude with a Bachelor of Music-Media from UTA. After school, I spent 9 months interning/assistant engineering with acclaimed musician/composer/producer Brad Nyght at The Bakery Studio in Dallas- whose credits include being the drummer for The Michael Gungor Band and Desperation Band. Then, got hired as an on-staff session musician and music producer at Drive35 Productions. I have also played guitar, mandolin, and bass for multiple pit orchestras and guitar for the North Lake Jazz Ensemble with director Jim Eger.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests. Whether that is classical guitar method, rock, jazz, folk, country, pop or anything in between.

I have an excellent internet connection and microphone set up for online lessons. I also utilize screen-sharing to make the lessons as close to real life as possible.

A few of my favorite artists include: Michael Gungor, Joe Pass, Andrew Bird, Chopin, Led Zeppelin, Glen Hansard, and Radiohead.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs. A typical guitar, bass, ukulele, or piano lesson may involve music-reading, chord studies, technical work, scale practice, theory, and of course learning awesome songs!

I consider myself a healthy balance between professional and light-hearted. As much as I want to make efficient use of the lesson-time, my primary goal is for the student to truly understand and enjoy music.

I have worked hard to be a flexible musician and teacher. I am competent in jazz, rock, classical, contemporary, blues, worship, country, and beyond and will be happy to teach any (or all) of these styles to any student.

I really enjoyed working with Jordan! His flexible approach to teaching and learning was refreshing. He was able to quickly assess my skill-level and meet me where I was at. During our lessons, I learned what I felt was applicable, as he gears the lessons towards the student, not teaching from a one-size-fits-all lesson plan. He is open to learning new ideas, as I understood the instrument from one perspective, and he a different perspective. He was willing to listen and adjust his teaching style towards my level of understand, and I was able to quickly progress. With his knowledge and his experience, he answered so many questions I had about music. If I take lessons again in the future, I will request Jordan.

Great teacher for piano, and music in general. I've been taking lessons with him for almost a year now, and he does a great job tailoring lessons to your interests. I've learned a couple jazz songs, some soloing techniques, and song writing techniques with Jordan. He started out the lessons teaching me the things that I needed to know and my last piano teacher didn't teach me. Great for any and all skill levels, plus he's a really cool dude.

Renee is incredible! The only thing I knew before starting was how to play Happy Birthday, with 1 hand, lol. But after 2 months, I was comfortable enough to play in church a little and after 4 months, the church began to ask me to participate more and I began playing for children in Sunday school! I was amazed at how much I learned and she let me guide the genre I really wanted to play and she was sooo encouraging, it was like I had a personal choice checking in and giving me encouraging tips and tricks! I’m so glad I choose her and I’d certainly recommend her. A++++💯☑️

Are you someone that has an ear for music that you want to develop? Allow me to help polish your musicianship with music theory, and ear training exercises. Learn to read and write music from a teacher who understands a "self taught" musician. I began piano at 7 years old writiting my first song at 8. I then polished my style with 8 years of lessons to better understand the anatomy of music. This gives me a unique view on teaching that mixed traditional teaching with a fun modern twist that will get you excited about learninf this beautiful instrument.

About Kalyse
I have always loved entertaining. I've appeared in hundreds of productions onstage, on television and on film. I am an accomplished trained singer, pianist, writer, and director and I have been nominated for several awards in acting, and directing. I am a proud graduate of The Second City Detroit trained in improvisation and sketch comedy, and the International Academy of Design and Technology with a B.F.A. in Digital Media Production. I have made it my life's work mastering these fields and have seen the power of the arts and how it can change people.

Vocal students can expect to learn the fundamental techniques of correct singing in order to develop and preserve their voices for a lifetime of singing enjoyment or as a career. I will strengthen each students range, tone, breath, vocal flexibility and theory to take their voice to the
next level. Optional emphasis on music theory, note reading and auditioning is available free of charge and is determined by the student at sign up.

Piano students can expect to learn the fundamental of piano in a fun and challenging way that will focus on note reading, scales and chord building, playing by ear, and sight reading. By combining music theory in your lessons you will be on the road to composing your own music!

Acting students can expect to learn the fundamentals of acting through the combination of scene work, mental and visualization exercises, physical & vocal warm ups, monologues, and audition preparation. Students area of emphasis (film, stage, or audition workshop) must be chosen at sign up and can be changed at any time.

What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.

Jessica Spangler’s Holistic Approach Piano Studio, LLC
A holistic and relevant approach to teaching piano and music skills to anyone.

Holistic Approach

The phrase “Holistic Approach” simply means that I teach the student, not the lesson. Every student has a different learning style, goal, strengths and weaknesses. It means I will teach all the elements of music in context of the big picture, not just learn the written language of music. It means I will think outside the box and customize the learning journey to help each student reach their own potential.

My goal is to facilitate students’ own exploration of the piano and its language so that they can learn to play anything independently. It’s a matter of “learning how to learn,” and making connections between all of the knowledge they gain. That comes through a functional, relevant introduction to music, as opposed to going through the motions of a method book alone, to memorize numerous isolated facts and repeat them ...

About Jess
I am a life-long musician with training in flute, piano, and vocal technique and performance. I attended Spring Arbor University received my associates in Piano Pedagogy in 2004. I am the pianist at Christ Church Fraser in Fraser, MI and I also play for weddings, funerals, and other events. I have been teaching piano since Iwas 13, when my teacher gave me referrals for beginners. I especially love to teach students with special needs and very young beginners.

The music that student’s wish to learn always takes priority. It is the goals of the student which drive their motivation to learn and which I enjoy most as a teacher.

Content is always aimed toward the student’s goals. Lessons include equal focus on all areas necessary to successful performance, including technique, reading, and theory, as well as history and stylistic accuracy.

About Ryan
I have been a professional musician for over 12 years, playing anywhere from the piano bench of a cozy jazz club to the organ bench in giant cathedral churches.

I have enjoyed performing and teaching all styles of music - whatever style it is you wish to play, I have probably done it myself at some point during my career.

As a teacher, I have enjoyed working with students of all ages and all levels, from absolute beginner to seasoned professionals.

I have been playing the piano since I was five years old, and when I began I didn't particularly like playing. Because of that, I have learned how to make it fun for young aspiring pianists. When we begin, we will of course learn basic technique and simple classical songs, but we will also learn simple arrangements of popular songs that will catch your child's attention. As we progress through the learning process, the student's input will be very important to me. We will learn songs that are important to their growth, and songs that they want to perform.
I believe that if the student wants to play the piano, they should learn songs that they want to learn while simultaneously learning correct technique and methods that will help them to eventually learn pieces without the support or help of a teacher.

About Kaitlin
Hi! My name is Kaitie Chan and I am so excited to hopefully work with you!
I have been playing the piano since I was five years old and have been singing for just as long, and have been helping to teach beginner students for the past year.
I have two main focuses in teaching - one, learning correct technique and skills that will help you to continue playing piano for the rest of your life, and two, learning songs and pieces that interest you!
Once we learn some basic piano pieces, we can branch out to many other skills, including learning how to sing and play the piano at the same time, learning how to write songs, learning how to create mashups, learning jazz piano skills, and many more. I have a highly diversified skill set and would love to help you learn what you want to learn!
