I use a variety of materials to best fit what the student needs and would like to get out of taking lessons. I enjoy teaching and playing music and I try to make sure my students have fun as well!

About Phillip

Hello! My name is Phillip M. and I have been playing the Horn for 18 years now. I started back in elementary school and haven't looked back since. After high school, I went to Central Michigan University where I earned my Bachelor of Music in Horn Performance while studying under Dr. Bruce Bonnell.

I've really been enjoying lessons and have been getting a lot out of them! Flexibility with scheduling concerns has also been well appreciated!
Baileigh B.
My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

I teach from a variety of guitar methods and also help students learn and work out current and classic popular songs that I have written out for them or songs that the student may also suggest. I find that this approach inspires and motivates students while learning the
the fundamentals of the instrument.

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

Sophia
Bonnie really knows her stuff. Reading patterns is hard for a first timer and she goes through the patterns well. She does well teaching online and makes it easy to follow.
Susan
Bonnie is a great resource for knitting help! She's knowledgeable and patient. We did have a few tech issues, but she gave me extra time, which was above and beyond, since the issues mostly were from my end. I do have to say though, that a zoom lesson doesn't compare to being together in person, but it's still a good option when that isn't available.

Hello Students,
I have been playing most of my life. I started playing professionally at 17, playing with a number of professional bands playing all over Michigan. I have been teaching drum students since the age of 19, teaching well over 500 students to date.

Teaching students has been one of my passions with music. I hope to motivate my students to learn to play and love the drums as much as I do.

I work with each student on an individual basis to help them learn and understand drumming technique using books and techniques that will help to develop instinctive skills and ear technique.

I work with snare drum / rudimental technique with all my students and drum set technique, as most students want to learn how to play a drum set. Many of my students are in school band learning snare drum and percussion technique. Basic snare drum technique is important for any student to master and understand to learn to apply to snare drum and drum set technique.

Building a solid

About Carol

I work with students of all experience levels and ages. With all the years playing with a number of band and worked with over 500 plus students, I have developed strong technical skills. I have also studied with several of the top notch teachers in the Metro Detroit area. Patience and motivating

As a clarinetist, it made perfect sense to me to pick up the saxophone. It is a great instrument to play. I really enjoy it.

I teach beginning and intermediate levels of saxophone. I use the rubank books as well as a few other books for saxophone books.

Jack R.
Heather is a great teacher; she is able to gauge ability and keeps the lessons varied and interesting, always pushing you just at the edge, beyond what you thought you were capable of. Friendly, amiable, and laidback in style, she makes learning in a comfortable atmosphere fun. You can tell she has a real passion for music and teaching, and results after just a few lessons proves she knows what she is doing.

I am a beginning singer, my only prior experience was singing with the congregation in church, not the choir.
Quinn
She's really nice, and makes warm-ups before starting the lesson for your voice range. The variety of songs you can sing is pretty big, you want to sing in Italian? There's plenty! Want to sing in Latin? I'm pretty sure there's a few! There are songs from various musicals, too. All in all, she's a pretty great teacher.

I love having Charlene as my teacher. She is very personable, patient, and loves to help her student advance. She is very musically talented and knowledgeable and knows how to effectively pass on her knowledge in a clear, understandable way. I love that she sees exactly why I’m having a problem with something and exactly what I need to do to fix the problem. I feel fortunate to have her.

"Chrystie is an amazing instructor! She is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and worked with my daughter's energy level. She used music appropriate to my daughter, and built up a routine over several weeks so my daughter could learn the parts. She made effective and efficient use of every minute of every lesson and appropriately pushed my daughter to learn, even though it was her first time taking tap lessons. I highly and ecstatically recommend Chrystie really to anyone because I am sure that fun, bubbly, energetic personality, combined with a high skill level, and excellent instructional strategies, can really help any student. Thank you again Christie!"

"Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem."

"Jeff has been providing great instruction in a comfortable environment. Each class Jeff is prepared with a list of things we are going to go over, and we review things from the previous week. He will show you how to make or bring props that you may not have and will let you try them out to make sure the trick works for your routine. After each class he has emailed me links to videos that provide alternate explanations as well as some more advanced techniques of things we may not have gone over. For me, in person learning works a lot better than Zoom and Jeff makes the classes both fun and instructional. The 1-1 in person environment he has will really help you excel your abilities. Each class you leave with at least a few tricks that you can start working on immediately. I would highly recommend Jeff!"
