About David
I am happy to offer piano lessons for beginning to advanced students, and guitar and violin lessons for beginning to upper intermediate students. I teach music in all genres, including pop/rock, classical, ragtime, Broadway, country, jazz, and more - whatever you like best.

I encourage students to learn music they are interested in, and to have fun with lessons, while also making sure that they have strong sight-reading and ear training skills, and a solid classical background.

I am a former K-12 Orchestra, Band, Piano, and Choir Teacher. I taught at the Winans Academy of Performing Arts (Detroit) and Madison Academy (Flint). I hold the equivalent of a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Michigan - Flint with piano as primary instrument. I played piano in the MSU Jazz Band and UM-Flint Jazz Band. I was also
a guitar singer-songleader at Tamarack Camps (Ortonville, MI) for seven summers, and I've played in and taught many string orchestras.

Let me know your musical goals and I will work to help you achieve them.

*** Lesson Details ***
My standard curriculum books are Alfred for Piano, Hal Leonard for Guitar, and Belwin for violin. However, if your preference is to use a different method book or teaching style, I'm happy to adjust to what you would like.

After three to six months, students on piano, violin, or guitar will know proper playing positions, the notes on the musical clefs, most types of notes and rests, and most importantly, they will be able to play at least a few real songs of progressing difficulty. After you've learned the basics, we can find sheet music at the correct difficulty level for some of your favorite songs.

I won't be strict or mad if you are not working to your potential. However, I will let you know one of the most important things about learning an instrument: "no one can practice your instrument for you." You can't even pay someone to do it, because it is impossible to transfer the knowledge. Therefore, it is very important that you work hard and practice in the ways that I will show you in the lessons. Don't worry - you'll be really proud of yourself for working hard and improving your skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room with an upright piano, acoustic guitars, violin, and seating available. No pets. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring method books if necessary, and provide written instructions for practice each week if they would like. The student is expected to provide the instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I am able to teach all styles of piano from classical to pop, beginner to advanced. I am familiar with many methods and can teach according to the students' preference.

I am also able to teach guitar, violin and music recording and music theory in all styles, with many different methods. I own a home studio and use Pro Tools, and I am familiar with Logic Pro and Garageband software.

Melody has done a wonderful job teaching my daughter who so confidently played 3 pieces and 1 duet piece with her. The recital was very organized and professionally done. I am continually impressed with her love, patience and dedication to her students. I would definitely refer her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.

Ms Melody is a great teacher. My five year old son enjoys his lesson and looks forward to coming weekly, not to mention the monthly play date Ms Melody offers to all her students which is really fun and helpful. From knowing nothing about piano to being confident at a recital in just five months is outstanding. Ms Melody is nice, patient, and has true love for her students.

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 Michael
I have many years experience as a working musician, combining: Private drum instruction, freelance studio work, and collaboration with musicians and bandmates in both a live and studio setting.

I have been a member of solid Metropolitan Detroit bands, most notably including: Friends of the Family, Night Train, and The Mobius Loop. I have been blessed with many great opportunities, most notably supporting national acts, such as: The Headhunters, Melvin Seals, Mofro and Strange Folk. And, I have recorded at excellent Metropolitan Detroit studios, including: Studio N Armada, Riff Lab Studios, Woodshed Studios and The Disc. Most recently, I participated in two separate studio/recording projects,with producer/multi-instrumentalist Joshua Michael Ackermann, and with producer/sound engineer Dan Lesnick. Along with teaching drum lessons, I
love to supplement my income with this type of studio work. I am also presently collaborating on original material, with a newly formed rock band, yet to be named. I am very excited about this and hope to get in the studio and to be gigging, in the near future!

I am looking to add dedicated students to my current roster. I took private instruction, studying under two EXCELLENT drummers from the Detroit Metro area: Darryl Pierce and Donny Gruendler. Mr. Pierce (among many other accomplishments) currently tours internationally and nationally with a well known artist by the name of Bettye LaVette. This group has made frequent television appearances, including: David Letterman and Austin City Limits. Mr. Gruendler, is currently the Vice President of Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, and he has been featured in several Modern Drummer publications.

I have learned a great deal through private instruction, and therefore teach from experience. I utilize and apply many of the techniques that I personally found useful; through my own private instruction. References from teachers, students, producers, and bandmates can be provided on request.

About ivan
I am Ivan I've been playing bass since 1972, started with guitar in 1969, i only however been teaching beginner and intermediate bass guitar and theory (professionally) since 2007, not including the people i use to teach bass back in the day and here and there. you want to learn bass, i teach bass you can understand, you can come to my home studio, or online, were we can record you playing (before and after). Music Major Inkster high school, Inkster Mi. (74-79). Detroit School of Music, Detroit Mi.(80-81). Music Minor Richmond College, Dallas Tx.(Major; Business Computer Programming Associate Degree 86-88). i am currently studying advanced Music Theory, Harmony, Arranging and Composition. Awards include, multiple trophies, letters of excellence, 1st and 2nd place music proficiency medals 1974-1979. i have played on several studio recordi
ngs, commercials, albums, and CD's with talented artist. Learning to play from a DVD or the internet can not properly teach a beginner bass player, because there should be a student/teacher interaction, one has to already know how to play in order for a DVD to be effective, and i truly believe one will still need an instructor. i enjoy teaching and playing bass. i teach (4 to 6 string), which includes learning to read bass clef notes, scales, chords, keys signatures and time on the music staff, etc., etc., i can teach tab also. i like to teach beginners to give them the correct and formal fingering techniques, then later if they like, they can go all willy nilly. i get satisfactory results. i also love playing guitar and piano, i know these instruments very well and because i want to teach as many as i can to keep real music alive, i also teach beginner guitar and piano, all the above applies to guitar and piano lessons, and music theory and ear training. i like using small i's

*** Lesson Details ***
Depending on the student's current level of understanding music and playing your instrument, i start with the healthy way to play your instrument, traditional left hand and right hand techniques, learning exercises, scales, chords, keys, ear training for how to find the part in songs, also music theory including how to read music, and improvising, then different styles of playing bass and guitar, including thump and pluck, now known as slap bass, hammer and tap, harmonics, flamenco and more, most of all i make it fun. With practice you will know how to play your instrument very well, or if you just want to learn songs or licks, its all good i work for you. are you ready? i am, lets go

*** Travel Equipment ***
i can provide a bass, a guitar, a keyboard and amp, but i expect student to have their own instrument and amp to practice

*** Specialties ***
i teach all genres, and i teach you to understand the music on your instrument.

Fun, great attitude, amazing knowledge and appreciation of all types of music. Ive let's me know what is going well, what I need to work on, and provides gentle encouragement when it is clear I am not practicing enough to get it right. He has worked with top professionals, so he knows the theory, the music, the lifestyle and the connections. He has a great laugh.
I am a teacher (science) and I appreciate a professional yet fun approach.
I might not ever be famous, but I am having fun learning to play, and I see progress.

Ive is a fantastic instructor because he works at your own pace and talks with you rather than at you. I don't feel dumb when I am learning information I hadn't known before, but instead he helps me feel like he is simply sharing his knowledge so that I can fully understand it, regardless of how complex it may initially seem. His prices are great and he's a great person. I highly recommend him if you are looking to learn an instrument!

About Tom
I have been teaching guitar and piano for many years in the Metro Detroit area. I have also played professionally in many local nightclub and wedding bands as well as having toured with "Bob Seger" as his lead guitarist/writer/vocalist. I have done recording sessions for "Motown" as well as having studied under "Joe Messina", a legendary Motown guitarist with the original "Funk Brothers." I take great pleasure in mentoring, training and equipping students with the necessary musical skills to achieve at the personal and or professional level according to the specific student's interest, desire and goals. I tailor my teaching methods according to the student's ability and musical preference, and can teach most anything from classic rock, to pop, classical, oldies, jazz, etc. Many of my students have gone on to play at the professional leve
l, and one, in particular, has become a music professor at "Berklee School of Music". Another former student plays with the band: "Thirty Seconds To Mars." I have also been able to assist those students who have a desire to introduce vocals while playing their instrument. I am also able to provide personal assistance in songwriting when needed.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very easy to get along with during lessons, however I can provide extra encouragement and motivation the student needs based on their specific goals for taking lessons, whether it be for personal enjoyment or for the purpose of making music their career. I believe that learning music can be fun even as a serious venture, and therefore I incorporate humor when appropriate. The curriculum I use includes: "Berklee, Mel Bay, and Hal Leonard" methods for guitar. For Piano I use "Schaum and Thompson" piano methods as well as Hannon for technique. Additionally, I invite students to suggest personal favorite songs of interest of their choosing as a motivational tool to aid them learning from the music that inspires them. I find this very helpful for students in developing a good ear as well as sparking motivation to practice as they learn from their favorite musical artists in addition to learning the fundamentals of the instrument.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music method books/sheet music etc. Students would need to own and bring their own instrument to lessons. I also provide guitar amplification.

*** Specialties ***
Berklee, Mel Bay, and Hal Leonard blues guitar method's. Schaum piano method. Hannon Technique. Pop, rock and jazz styles.

About TJ
I've been a touring, professional singer/songwriter for decades, My guitars and I have serenaded folks from Vancouver to Romania and most places in between...except for the Atlantic OCEAN, of course!

I work in my recording studio, where I'll teach you from, most of the day, but I always keep a FEW spots open for students. I believe it's a great way to give back to the community and show gratitude for all that I've been given.

Do you wanna get skills and possibly turn a fun hobby into a potentially awesome career? Then take it outta the case! Let's DO THIS!
