Private Piano Teacher

I’m passionate about music education and I am a full time music teacher and active performer throughout the SE Michigan area.

Lessons are designed and catered around each student and I believe in a well rounded approach in teaching music. While everyone will learn a solid foundation of note reading and playing technique, lessons also pull from sources such as music theory, ear training, music history, etc.

I hold a Masters in Piano Performance from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London and a Bachelors in Piano Performance from the University of Michigan.

Whether you’re looking to learn a new hobby, or further your musical skills, I’d love to help out. All levels welcome!

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have experience teaching many beginning students! I have 3 children and decided to give up regular teaching to be with them. I believe that tone production is the most important area of study. It doesn’t matter what you can play if it doesn’t sound good. I can’t wait to help more students love to “play” on their instruments!

About Kim

Hello! I started my love of music at a young age with my family playing and singing at family functions. That turned into a wanting to learn how to play the flute and I went up through high school with that instrument. After high school I branched out more into vocal performance. After that I j

Online Piano Teacher

Learning to read music, play piano chords, scales, accompaniments, different styles, entire songs, and pieces can feel overwhelming to the beginner. I like to teach in a fun and relaxed way, but also challenging to do your best and believe in yourself. I know that with the right approach every person can learn and improve their skills!

From my years of experience, each student is unique and learns differently. I like to work with people from all walks of life who have decided to take on learning how to play piano for the joy and numerous benefits it provides. I have worked with children that have challenges such as ASD, ADHD, and emotional issues and find them to be some of the best students.

My priority is to make learning piano a fun but challenging activity that you can benefit from. i like to create a learning space where you feel safe to explore and challenge yourself.

She was absolutely fantastic with my 5 year old daughters first lesson. She had her smiling the whole time.....we are coming back next week for sure.
Nikki R.
My first vocal teacher and the best!

Ms. Rachel was an amazing vocal teacher! We would always start off with simple and fun warm-ups, breathing techniques, and would practice singing songs from musicals. My first couple lessons she taught me how to sing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story and we both had so much fun with it! After a little while we learned Cups from Pitch Perfect and then we got into the Vaccai book and I learned a couple songs from there. Overall Ms. Rachel was the best! She even offered to Skype a lesson with me since she moved. She cared about me and always helped me improve my voice in every way she could. I love her!

Online Piano Teacher

Beginning Piano students will be taught the basics in a fun but productive way. I will teach a strong foundation so a student can move forward with confidence. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

Students will learn the basics about rhythm, harmony, and melody and how they apply to piano. They will become fluent in the 12 basic keys to a degree where you can play simple songs in any of them.

About Melissa

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.
Sevval N.
She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.
Youjia S.
My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Revitalizing the “Rock City” through Detroit Piano Lessons

By Nic. C - Detroit Piano Teacher

It seems as though many Detroit families own a piano; whether a grand, a small electronic Casio or one of the old outmoded Grinnell uprights made here in Detroit. We are a city of music through and through. From the old Motown recordings that helped to bridge racial issues in the time of the civil rights movement, to Bob Seger’s message of hard work and peace, to Kid Rock’s promise of the good life, our city has always had an incredible sense of community based around our hometown music. As a local piano instructor, I used to see this hometown pride carry over into the Detroit piano lessons I teach to students of all ages.

Amidst the tough economic situation our area is facing today, the sense of community that was formed through music is vanishing as quickly as the automotive jobs that once kept this city thriving. The schools have cut their budgets for music to next to nothing, club owners pay their musicians less and less, and fewer and fewer families have money for Detroit piano lessons. The interest in the arts for our children is vanishing like all of those Grinnell pianos made here in Detroit so many years ago.

Although challenging, the situation isn’t all bleak. Thanks to you, the parents of the children that I am so blessed to teach through TakeLessons.com, we can work to restore and revitalize our city back to the glory it once held as “Rock City.” Together, one Detroit piano lesson at a time, we will shape not only the future of our city, but the futures of the children in it.
