Michelle does a great job with my 6 year old son. He has been getting weekly lessons for over a year now, and is making a lot of progress. He also enjoys the lessons enough to look forward to them. I was worried he would lose interest, but so far that is not the case. Michelle makes it fun and provides small rewards and lots of encouragement. I wanted to expose my son to the experience and enjoyment that comes with learning to play music, and Michelle has made that possible.

This subject would be geared for intermediate to advanced students. The areas explored would be focused on detailed piano pedagogy, and repetoire from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Twentieth century eras. My experience traces a musical lineage back to the 19th century pianist Franz Liszt. Students must have a piano background of a minimum of 10 years of study.

About Cheryl
I have worked for over 30 years as a professional
accompanist and musician in the greater metropolitan Detroit area. I have earned several degrees,
which include a Bachelor of Music Performance in Organ and a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and
Music both from Wayne State University. My studies included wonderful instructors. I have studied
extensively with Albert Fillmore for ten years, Mischa Kottler for four years and Robert Conway for
five years. The last two instructors were from Wayne State and also played with the Detroit Symphony
Orchestra. I have studied organ with Ray Ferguson who played with DSO as well and I have studied
voice with Marjorie Gordon, coloratura soprano.
With over 30 years of experience as professional musician, I am confident that I possess the
qualifications needed to make a difference and an impact i
n the lives of people.
Most of my career tenure has been with the Detroit Public Schools. I have worked at various
levels in Pre-K – 12 schools but the longest has been twelve years at Cody High School. I have
enjoyed coaching the students and working with the music staff at the Cody Complex. These students
are very talented and eager to express their creativity and musical ability. I am a seasoned musician
with sight reading, transposing and improvisational skills. I used these skills to work with children
and young adults in small groups, larger groups and individual coaching in preparation for festivals
competitions and auditions.
I would like to continue providing this service to the young people within the Greater Metro
Detroit Area. Music is an important part of youth development in math and English. It also helps to
produce character and leaderships skills of discipline, teamwork, commitment and pride. I've also done the same for my private piano students, in studio as well as in a corporate setting.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a diligent instructor that possesses intuitive goals, almost from the first few lessons! I am always encouraging, and give modest yet helpful criticism. I insist on teaching and developing the fundamentals in private study, ie, standard concepts and music theory. In three months time, the student will know whether we are a good fit, whether or not they like my instruction, and discover their unique abilities as a result of my facilitation!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have an acoustic piano, or a full-sized weighted keyboard, if not full-sized, then a keyboard consisting of 76 working keys!

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained musician. I am also a church musician. My other styles do include pop, jazz, oldies, gospel and contemporary christian music. I start with the basics before moving to any other styles of music.

With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am able to prepare students for polished, accurate, playing with an emotional connection. Beginners will learn to read music using method books that are supplemented with authentic classical pieces (as opposed to beginners' versions of popular pieces). Intermediate students will learn classical pieces from all musical eras. We will cover all major and minor scales, arpeggios, sight reading, and aural skills.

About Cindy
Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y
ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

From the moment we walked in Cindy made my shy daughter immediately feel at ease. Her approach and ability to connect with students at any age (I overheard her lessons with an older woman), makes her a gem. She provided helpful tips to help improve while practicing. With each lesson, my daughter walked away feeling more confident and clear on what she needed to practice at home. I would definitely recommend her.

About Rachel M.

Close

My students consistently stand out at local competitions and festivals. Some have gone on to careers in music, others still play after ending lessons, for their own enjoyment.

In addition to my 30 years experience as a traditional piano teacher to students of all ages and levels, I have extensive background in The Taubman Approach. I have studied with the most preeminent experts in this approach to piano technique and am now in the teacher training program in the Keyboard Wellness Seminar. This approach to piano technique is peer reviewed and based on sound physiological and physical principles. Students who study this approach are able to maximize virtuosity while avoiding or reversing injury.

About Rachel
Rachel M. is a performing pianist, composer, adjudicator, clinician, church musician, and teacher. Her students have won many competitions and some have gone on to become respected musicians at prestigious colleges and religious institutions.

Dr. M. teaches at Macomb community college and at her home studio in Troy, Michigan. While she upholds high standards for her students, Dr. M. believes in respecting the individual needs and unique qualities of each one. Students learn a mixture of classical and popular music and are introduced to the fundamentals of music theory and improvisation/ composition.

Dr. M. offers a variety of performance opportunities for students. As a member of NFMC, MTNA, the Vivace Music Club and the American Guild of Music, she regularly enters children in a variety of competitions if that is what they choose t
o do.

As a clinician, Dr. M.has given several lectures around the state on the Taubman approach to piano technique. Dr. M. is one of only 2 or 3 pianists within the state of Michigan to have worked one on one with the late Dorothy Taubman, considered by many to be the world’s leading expert on the prevention and healing of music related hand injuries as well as a master coach of leading concert pianists. (see New York Times article)

As a performer, Dr. M. plays regularly with the Macomb Symphony and has also given numerous recitals in the United States and abroad. She has appeared as a concerto soloist with the Macomb Symphony, Southfield youth symphony and the Grinnell Orchestra.

In the last five years, Dr. M. decided to write down some of “those tunes that are always running through my head.” To date she has written about 40 compositions, some of which have been performed at local churches. Stay tuned. This has been an exciting development for her students, some of whom have their own compositional aspirations.

I am very picky about my piano instructor and tried lessons with a few teachers. I ended up sticking with Rachel for these reasons: Rachel is extremely knowledgeable on piano technique, theory, history, etc. She can sight-read complex pieces, and she also has a vast repertoire...there have been many times where I ask her about a song I want to learn and she would play it right at that moment because she has either taught it or learned it in the past. Rachel is patient enough on weeks where I didn't practice much and uses the lesson time to go over my piano technique in detail. She is also strict enough to motivate me to learn difficult pieces; I'm currently working on Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu op. 66 under her guidance.
I am an adult student who took piano and violin lessons as a child and currently been with Rachel for over two years (weekly hour-long lessons). Highly recommend this teacher!!!

Hi!
My name is Gity, I'm a professional composer with Bachelor and Master's degrees from The Juilliard School in composition.

I started playing the piano when I was 7 years old, and kept on performing piano until my career as a composer became very demanding. But I still teach piano because I love the instrument and I enjoy practicing!

When teaching piano, I tap into my knowledge and techniques I've developed as a professional, working musician over more than a decade not just as a pianist but also as a composer.

My teaching techniques makes the lessons for my students fun, interactive and comprehensive: you learn not just how to press the keys and read the notes (as one of my old piano teachers used to say,) but you learn about musicality, compositional backbone of a piece. You learn how to decipher the score and look for clues that would make understanding and interpreting a piece of music easy and fun. You'll learn how to be a complete musician and how to develop good,

Jessica Spangler’s Holistic Approach Piano Studio, LLC
A holistic and relevant approach to teaching piano and music skills to anyone.

Holistic Approach

The phrase “Holistic Approach” simply means that I teach the student, not the lesson. Every student has a different learning style, goal, strengths and weaknesses. It means I will teach all the elements of music in context of the big picture, not just learn the written language of music. It means I will think outside the box and customize the learning journey to help each student reach their own potential.

My goal is to facilitate students’ own exploration of the piano and its language so that they can learn to play anything independently. It’s a matter of “learning how to learn,” and making connections between all of the knowledge they gain. That comes through a functional, relevant introduction to music, as opposed to going through the motions of a method book alone, to memorize numerous isolated facts and repeat them ...

About Jess
I am a life-long musician with training in flute, piano, and vocal technique and performance. I attended Spring Arbor University received my associates in Piano Pedagogy in 2004. I am the pianist at Christ Church Fraser in Fraser, MI and I also play for weddings, funerals, and other events. I have been teaching piano since Iwas 13, when my teacher gave me referrals for beginners. I especially love to teach students with special needs and very young beginners.

Experienced teacher of 3 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs, goals, and personal tastes of each student. Not only will we be playing songs in no time, but we will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Students can learn classical music, pop music, and music from many other styles. Students may also become involved in fun projects that make skills like improvisation and dictation come naturally. Send me a message to see if my training matches your goals!

About Paige
I am currently a junior at Oakland University studying instrumental/general music education and piano performance, where I receive piano instruction from world-renowned pianist and pedagogue Tian Tian. My private piano training began at the age of five in Shelby Township. Since then, I've earned top ratings from various music organizations, including the National Federation of Music and the American Guild of Music. I also made an appearance playing Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major, k. 488 with the Oakland University Chamber Orchestra, and was a finalist in the Oakland Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition.
Students under my tutelage find that they learn quickly and can see their improvement from week to week. Students gain more confidence in their abilities and are excited to learn more constantly. They are able to play/write/c
reate/understand music they love, as well as understand music from a more holistic, worldly perspective.
When I teach, I encourage creativity and an excitement to learn. I look forward to meeting you and helping you unlock your potential in music!

Kalamazoo, MI
View Full Profile

I have given private instruction in piano since I was 12 years old. I teach my students to read music as well as to improvise (play by ear.)

As an experienced keyboard artist and worship leader, I specialize in church music, both contemporary and traditional styles.

I also have a B. A. in Church Music from Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

My students have typically gone on to play the piano or keyboard on church worship teams.

About Nathan
I am a husband and father of four boys and three girls. My profile pic was taken of me and one of my sons playing a duet in a recital. I am new at teaching online, but am tech savvy and looking forward to the convenience of giving online instruction.

I enjoy people and have fun teaching. I usually use the Alfred Premiere Piano Course for teaching beginning and intermediate piano lessons. For more advanced students I would probably use a mix of classical music and coach my students on whatever music they are using or interested in learning to play.

If you want to play in church, whether your church is traditional or contemporary, I'm a good fit. I've been doing it for years and it's working for many of my students as well.

I am an “older” student (59 years old!) who has dreamed of playing piano since childhood, but figured with my short memory and age, it would not be possible. But after talking with Pastor Pierpont, he assured me otherwise and I have LOVED learning to play! He goes at my pace, yet pushes me gently when needed.
