Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.

Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Hello! My name is Emma C. and I recently completed my sophomore year as a cello performance major at the University of Michigan, where I study with Prof. Richard Aaron. I have been studying the cello for 14 years, and previously taught weekly private cello lessons to kids ages 6-15 for around 3 years during high school. I have plenty of experience teaching beginners, but I am also willing to teach musicians of any level!

I will be available for in-person lessons at the Moore Building on campus since I will be staying in Ann Arbor until mid-June, and I will return in late August. I am also willing to teach online lessons via Skype. I am fully vaccinated, but I still would like to social distance and wear a mask if we decide to meet in person.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Emma Cary, 19, is a rising junior at the University of Michigan where she studies cello performance with Richard Aaron. She began cello lessons at 6 years old with her father, Neal Cary, and continued lessons with him for 12 years. Other influential teachers include Julian Schwarz, who she studied

Emma helped my son get into the youth orchestra and worked on improving a few of his weaknesses like sightreading and technique. He was much more motivated to practice after lessons. I am a nurse and emma was flexible and understanding with scheduling.

I am an experienced teacher of 4 years and NATS member, specializing in musical theatre and popular styles of private voice study. Royal Conservatoire of Scotland graduate with an MA in Musical Theatre (2017), as well as professional experience as a musical theatre actor at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, cabaret creative, Associate Member & Music Assistant with Original Practice Shakespeare Festival, and Music Director in the high school public education sector.
My educational ethos focuses on the individual student; the goal of each session is to support the student's love of singing by cultivating a positive relationship with the voice, trust and consent between me and the student, as well as develop tangible skill sets that both improve the voice from lesson to lesson, and increase the student's sense of control over, and understanding of, their voice. I work with my students to set goals, and encourage self-advocacy in my students, children and adults alike.

My 14yo has been taking lessons with Katelin for 2 years! He never sticks with anything this long but he LOVES his time spent with Katelin. He started with in person lessons, and switched to virtual during covid times. Katelin works with him to fully explore the music genre that HE is interested in, while teaching him about his voice, breathing and so much more that I do not understand but they now speak the same language. She also pushes him out of his comfort zone to grow as an artist. She gives him specific tasks/homework to practice and work on between lessons and monitors to ensure he is making progress and growth. This has been a wonderful enrichment for him!

Being able to create music is an integral part of the human condition as it helps us express and understand an exceedingly wide range of human emotion. Teaching how to do it has therefore always been my greatest passion and having been privileged with the guidance of great pedagogues in the past, it is my ambition to pass that invaluable knowledge and skill on to aspiring musicians. I am certain that every person (no matter what age) has vast potential and it is my duty as a teacher to extract those talents and nurture creativity. Guiding students to find a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship to music will encourage them to not only be exceptional artists, but also human beings. It is essential to cater to each student individually helping each one find the right practice strategies, technical studies, repertoire, and most importantly, their own musical identity. My goal is not simply to develop skill, but to teach students how to teach themselves, find their ...

After reading through a large number of teacher profiles, something about Vera's background, experience, and teaching philosophy made me decide to reach out for lessons, and I am extremely happy that I did, as I look forward to each lesson.

Vera has been absolutely great to work with, and if you are looking for a teacher who will challenge you, and be tough and direct when necessary, but also offer empathy and support to help you grow and learn to the best of your ability, then I highly recommend Vera.

"Taking lessons with Miriam has been a blessing in my life. She has helped me not only grow vocally, but as an individual. She is incredibly intelligent, kind, encouraging, and talented! I would never take voice lessons with anyone else. She is a ray of sunshine, and if it weren't for her, I wouldn't be where I am today, vocally and as a person. I recommend her to everyone considering taking lessons. She cares for you as an individual, and believes in you. That is incredibly hard to find elsewhere, and I am grateful I found her!"
