About Zbigniew
My greatest desire is that I will instill in each of my students the love I have for making music.
I am a classically-trained violinist. I grew up in Lodz, Poland, where I began musical education at the age of 7.
I studied violin and piano at the Music High School and Music Academy of K.&G. Bacewicz, Lodz, Poland and earned a Master Degree in violin performance in 1980.
During his College years I started to perform with the Symphony Orchestra of Polish Radio and Television.
From the mid – 70s until the early 1990s, I performed with several Polish orchestras
and held a position as a violin teacher for four years at the College of Education
in Slupsk, Poland.
Then, I spent almost 10 years performing in numerous ensembles and orchestras in Germany and toured with Orchestra of Great Theater of Lodz in many countries all over the
world.
From 2002 – 2005 he was first violinist at Lodz’s Operetta Theater.
I moved to Michigan in 2005, where he performs with Macomb, Jackson and Flat Rock Symphony Orchestras.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most interesting and beneficial thing about performing music is that it is one of the few activities that engages both the left and the right brain at the same time. I believe that every Human Being is precious and deserves to be nurtured and encouraged in a fun and loving environment. With that in mind, my teaching places equal importance on developing strong technique, and developing creativity. Students learn all the basics of music, and also spend time developing strong ensemble skills and strong background knowledge of style and repertoire, so that they can enjoy music in all kinds of settings, all their lives.
Our time spent together will be laid back and comfortable, yet challenging because that is probably why you want to take lessons.
Each lesson will conclude with an assignment of instrumental pieces/songs given to work on throughout the week—usually 2-3 short songs for 30-minute lessons, and 1-2 longer instrumental pieces for an hour-long lesson. These will be the same pieces we have worked on during the lesson time, so you will go home with the knowledge you need to master each piece. Music theory sheets and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.
Within 6 months, you will begin discovering how to read music and understand the language of it. You will learn how to play some of your favorite songs/instrumental pieces and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve through taking lessons, and we will work toward those goals!
Discipline is vital to musical progress and daily practice is strongly urged, in order for the student to progress. If a students don't practice, they won't progress. Because of that, you can expect that I will encourage consistent and regular practice, always keeping in mind that the study of music is meant to be fun.
Knowing from experience how "boring" it can be to learn by rote, I combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music.
I would be honored to share my knowledge and love of music with you. Give yourself a priceless gift that will last a lifetime!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano /Hammond Organ

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own instrument. I can provide the music stand and I always bring my own instrument so that I can demonstrate during lessons.

Zebie is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient and is excellent at finding new methods to teach techniques which I am struggling with at the time. Though I am only 3 weeks in (from being pretty much a complete beginner), I can already tell I am making progress. I am very excited to continue my lessons and improve. I highly recommend taking lessons from Zebie.

I teach contemporary, classical and gospel music. I teach reading as well as memorization.

About Brittiny
Brittiny is a classical and contemporary church pianist. She resides in Metro Detroit, Michigan. She is a very patient person who is dedicated to her students and focuses on accomplishing the needs and goals of her students. She likes to get to know her students interests and goals as well as their learning style in order to teach the most effectively. She has played the piano for ten years in church, for choirs and has worked as a piano teacher and vocal instructor. Her students have ranged from the ages of 5-60 years, all of which have gained a better knowledge and love for the piano. Brittiny's goal as a piano teacher is to help her students to love the piano and music as much as she does.

Brittiny graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in music, concentrating in piano performance.
Brittiny was the pianist for the Peterson Warren Academy choir for three years. She was the piano player, choir director and music coordinator for the Univeristy of Michigan student groups; Adventist students for Christ and Campus Hope Ministries, until she graduated in 2009. She is presently playing for different churches and is the lead pianist and vocal coach for her musical group. She has been giving private piano instructions for the past year and cannot wait to continue.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching and helping others learning about the piano. I am a patient, thorough and dedicated teacher. I will make sure that my student is able to achieve the personal and professional goals that we set together. My teaching style is very in depth, I teach classical, church, contemporary and gospel music genres. I can move at a fast pace or a slower pace, it mostly depends on the student. I feel that everyone has a different learning style and technique and it is best to work along those lines in order to attain the most promising outcome. I will create a very comprehensive lesson plan for the student incorporating their goals as well as my mine. I would expect my student to practice daily and be prepared to learn something new every lesson while also incorporating what they have learned thus far.

About Lisa
I studied Classical Piano under Ruth Jones for 13 years and under Audrejean Heydenburg at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. I studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years.I have been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons for nearly as long. I studied piano pedagogy and vocal music education at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. I 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, I lead worship at West Highland Baptists Church and have 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 ***
For vocal lessons, I mostly teach Contemporary, Pop and Broadway as well as worship styles. I incorporate the fundamentals into my everyday teaching style and help the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study. I teach the student how to use their voice correctly as well as how to have good stage presence and performance ready ability.

I teach 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. I will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio has a parking space for one student to come and one to go. Parents are welcome to wait and listen to the lesson or drop the student off. Please contact me about directions after booking as my driveway is a but hard to find the first time you come.

*** 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'm a classically trained pianist. I have been teaching this subject for 10 years. I have a traditional and non-traditional style when I teach. I focus on technique. I also record the student's piano performances. But most of all, I make learning music FUN!

About Ramona
I'm a professional musician and audio engineer. I'm a classically trained pianist and I offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, music theory, music recording, music performance and songwriting.

I received my music education from The Brooklyn Music School, Cornell University and the The Institute of Audio Research.

I perform in original & cover bands as a keyboardist and back up singer. I also do work for hire session recordings and have composed music for commercials and short films.

As an audio engineer, I record, mix, edit, arrange, master and program demos, EPs albums, mix-tapes, karaoke tracks and ringtones. I also produce as well. I co-own a project recording studio in Brooklyn, NY called Radian Studios.

sson Details ***
For piano and voice, I incorporate basic music theory methods but I also focus on ear training as well. My ultimate goal when teaching is for the student to have a visceral experience while playing or singing.

For audio engineering, I go over audio recording techniques and the tools & equipment needed to produce a professional sounding song.

I enjoy imparting my knowledge of music to others and I demonstrate that enthusiasm in my teaching style. I love relating what I'm teaching a student to his/her learning style. Figuring out how someone learns is a key component to my method and I'm a better instructor because of it.

Learn to play your favorite music on the piano. Relaxed, no-stress lessons will help you or your child enjoy playing the piano.
I have experience teaching young students, so your child can start early. I will use a variety of music styles including modern, classical, Romantic and your child's favorite music. I also believe that you are never too old to enjoy playing music.

About Tracy
"I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano!"

Well, now's the time! You can do it with no-stress lessons regardless of your age.

I am a mom with a passion for education and music. I am excited to see people, young or old, learn new things and stretch their boundaries. I want you to have fun.

My educational philosophy is that "success breeds success." As I guide the student to achieve small successes at the beginning, you will gain confidence in your ability. As your confidence grows, you will be able to conquer more challenges and succeed beyond what you might expect.

In fact, learning the piano will aid in learning all other musical instruments, improve hand-eye coordination and increase appreciation for music of all genres. But the benefits for your preschooler don't end at the keyboard. It will im
prove language development, math concepts (patterns, and counting), persistence, delayed gratification, critical thinking, logic, history, empathy and much more. And the benefits of playing the piano aren't just for preschoolers. Mature students show improvements in memory, brain function, health and coping with stress and anxiety.

I can't wait to see you or your child enjoy the music as much as I do.
