About Zbigniew
My greatest desire is that I will instill in each of my students the love I have for making music.
I am a classically-trained violinist. I grew up in Lodz, Poland, where I began musical education at the age of 7.
I studied violin and piano at the Music High School and Music Academy of K.&G. Bacewicz, Lodz, Poland and earned a Master Degree in violin performance in 1980.
During his College years I started to perform with the Symphony Orchestra of Polish Radio and Television.
From the mid – 70s until the early 1990s, I performed with several Polish orchestras
and held a position as a violin teacher for four years at the College of Education
in Slupsk, Poland.
Then, I spent almost 10 years performing in numerous ensembles and orchestras in Germany and toured with Orchestra of Great Theater of Lodz in many countries all over the
world.
From 2002 – 2005 he was first violinist at Lodz’s Operetta Theater.
I moved to Michigan in 2005, where he performs with Macomb, Jackson and Flat Rock Symphony Orchestras.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most interesting and beneficial thing about performing music is that it is one of the few activities that engages both the left and the right brain at the same time. I believe that every Human Being is precious and deserves to be nurtured and encouraged in a fun and loving environment. With that in mind, my teaching places equal importance on developing strong technique, and developing creativity. Students learn all the basics of music, and also spend time developing strong ensemble skills and strong background knowledge of style and repertoire, so that they can enjoy music in all kinds of settings, all their lives.
Our time spent together will be laid back and comfortable, yet challenging because that is probably why you want to take lessons.
Each lesson will conclude with an assignment of instrumental pieces/songs given to work on throughout the week—usually 2-3 short songs for 30-minute lessons, and 1-2 longer instrumental pieces for an hour-long lesson. These will be the same pieces we have worked on during the lesson time, so you will go home with the knowledge you need to master each piece. Music theory sheets and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.
Within 6 months, you will begin discovering how to read music and understand the language of it. You will learn how to play some of your favorite songs/instrumental pieces and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve through taking lessons, and we will work toward those goals!
Discipline is vital to musical progress and daily practice is strongly urged, in order for the student to progress. If a students don't practice, they won't progress. Because of that, you can expect that I will encourage consistent and regular practice, always keeping in mind that the study of music is meant to be fun.
Knowing from experience how "boring" it can be to learn by rote, I combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music.
I would be honored to share my knowledge and love of music with you. Give yourself a priceless gift that will last a lifetime!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano /Hammond Organ

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have their own instrument. I can provide the music stand and I always bring my own instrument so that I can demonstrate during lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Teaching methods: Suzuki and traditional /formal method, in group and one on one settings

My son Zain and I really enjoyed his first lesson with Zb. As this was Zain's very first piano lesson ever, I was glad to see that Zb started out by teaching him how his overall posture and arm movements should be. I was impressed by this especially because when I learned to play trumpet years ago, I learned some non-optimal habits early on that plagued me all through my time playing. I'm happy that Zain is being taught good habits from the very beginning by Zb!

Macomb, MI
View Full Profile

Experienced Violin teacher of 30 years available for eager students aged 2 through adult! I teach using the Suzuki Violin Method through book five and am certified in books one and two. I structure the lessons around each student so that they are taught at their level and speed while encouraging and challenging them to excel further.

About Charlene
Over 25 years violin teaching experience. I have successfully taught students ages 3 to adult. Anyone can learn to play the violin. Lessons in a comfortable setting in my studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are taught in my home in a comfortable setting. Parents are encouraged to sit in on lessons and are expected to help their child practice. I teach the Suzuki Method and the Suzuki book and recording are required. I will change details to suit a student, for instance I teach note reading long before a traditional Suzuki teacher would and I will add non-Suzuki materials into lessons if needed.

Elements of the Suzuki Philosophy
- every child (or adult) can learn
- listening and encouragement are essential
- parents are the real teachers, I am the director
- Love. I love each student and teach through my love
- accep
t where your child is, but challenge them to be better
- constant review and repetition of materials is essential to learning
- compete only with yourself, not your peers or parents
- character is developed as the child gains knowledge and ability

When learning music, your child is taught true self-confidence. They know they truly have achieved a great thing when they learn to play an instrument. The things they learn, such as patience and perseverance, will pour over into all areas of their lives

*** Studio Equipment ***
Young students are started out on a play violin so they can learn the proper positions before they graduate to their real violin. I will assist parents in finding the right instrument for their child.

*** Specialties ***
I have never found a child who couldn't learn music. Obviously, some will learn faster than others, but with the right encouragement and help from their parents, any child can learn to play the violin.

I teach from the Suzuki and Essential Elements violin books.

I was a Texas All-State violinist during high school (state-wide competition).

I have experience playing in high school, university, and community orchestras.

About Chenyu
Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile :)

Every 7-8 months, I host recitals for my students to perform in front of family and friends. Parents loved the previous recitals from May 2016 and January 2017. This gives students the opportunity to display their talents and hard work in a formal setting. Recitals are optional, for all instruments, and will be held at the Piano Place in Troy.

I have a Master's degree in Social Work and love building relationships with clients and empowering people. I currently still take piano & drum lessons from accomplished music teachers to continue learning techniques to pass on to my students...I believe a great teacher never stops being a student.

I have taught multiple students violin from the beginning stages. They have advanced through the Suzuki books and have been able to audition and attend Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp or audition for orchestral groups.

About Olivia
Welcome!

I am a Recruiter for a Digitial Advertising company during the day, newborn photographer on the weekends at Beaumont hospital, and a piano and violin instructor in the evenings.

I grew up in South Korea where I received most of my piano and violin instruction. I have maintained my piano and violin skills throughout the years by participating in my college orchestra, playing for events, and teaching kids in my community.

My teaching style is flexible, it all depends on the student's learning style and what they are most receptive to. I recommend parents to utilize piano/violin books that not include just performance, but theory and technique as well to build a solid foundation.

I am currently pursuinig my certification for the Suzuki method and very familiar with the Essential Elements book. I help many of my violin
players with their goals in their respective schools along with their own solo work.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

I have discovered violin when I was seven. At nine, I enrolled as a student at "Dinu Lipatti"
Music High School in Bucharest, Romania, after which I started my journey with the piano, helping me
to discover new horizons about the wonderful world of music.
Subsequent graduating high school, I attended the National University of Music, Bucharest,
Romania, achieving a bachelor degree in violin performance and a master degree in Chamber Music -
Violin. I have performed as a first violinist with various orchestral ensembles, having the pleasure to
play as a soloist and being part of various chamber music ensembles, achieving a plethora of musical
experiences within my
country and abroad ... while being employed with Sibiu State Philharmonic.
Especially pleasant and eye opening were performances I have put out with international artists,
classical, folk, rock and Irish musical bands. All these allowed me to express my free spirit through
what I love the most – Music.
At the end of 2014 I got married and moved to Milford, Michigan. Since 2015 I play with some
of the most prestigious orchestras in the State: Lansing, Flint, Saginaw, Oakland, Rochester and others.
Being able to make the notes come to life is a gift I have received from fellow artists and I have
the responsibility to gift it as well . That is why, teaching is for me a way to plant a seed of beauty,
kindness, light, and make it grow with the magic of music.
