About Josiah
At the age of four, after watching a group of children playing their violins on the television show, “Sesame Street”, I became inspired to learn how to play the violin. Since that time I have studied violin with Daniel Vega-Albela, Dr. Joseph Koob and Renata Knific. In 2006, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Studies. During my undergraduate studies, I learned beginning jazz guitar and improvisation from jazz guitarist, John Riemer. Leading up to my attending WMU, I had participated in Master Classes with Sally O’Reilly, Dr. Barry Ross, Stephen Clapp, Benny Kim, Katie Lansdale, David Barg, and Ronda Cole. I was a member of the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony for five years and I was the concertmaster during my senior year. I also won the Kalamazoo Junior Symphony’s soloist competition duri
ng my senior year of High School. I was a featured youth soloist with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra during their youth concerts in 2003. I also performed as a soloist on WMUK’s radio program, “Bravo!” I played in the Western Michigan University Symphony Orchestra for two years. Over the years I have attended several different summer music institutes including “Aria” in Muncie, Indiana, “Steven’s Point” in Steven’s Point, Wisconsin, “Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp” in Muskegon, Michigan, and “Sound Encounters” in Ottawa, Kansas.

In addition to playing classical and jazz music, I thoroughly enjoy the music of the fiddle. I have played fiddle with a few different bands in Chicago, IL, Virginia Beach, VA and Southwest Michigan. I have played in numerous pit orchestras for musical theater productions in the Southwest Michigan area.

In addition to being an accomplished musician, I have been happily teaching music lessons for the past six years. As a Certified Suzuki teacher, I believe in providing a positive, nurturing environment for my students to learn. I am committed to providing a friendly approach to teaching music lessons. I strive to make the learning process fun and interesting for them. I respect my students. I love helping each one of them find creative ways to achieve their unique set of musical goals. I teach classical, jazz, bluegrass and rock music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons take place in a large class room at a local church conveniently located right off of I-94. There is a lobby area with chairs where the parents can wait. Parents can also watch their younger children in the nursery area.

To start: If you don't already have an instrument, I will help you find a nice one and the proper equipment. I will also provide you with recordings of the music that you will be learning. I believe that listening to your pieces ahead of time is a great help when it comes time to learn them.

During your first three to six months of lessons, I will discover your main learning style. For example, you may learn music more easily using a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic approach. You will have lots of fun developing a beautiful tone on your instrument as we focus our attention on developing your technique. I will show you how to practice the music on your own so that you can make the most of your practice time. Your confidence and self-esteem will increase as you build a repertoire of music from the very beginning of our time together.

As you progress in your musical skills and artistic development, you will become fluent in performing your favorite pieces. Each lesson contains technical and musical points covered in a carefully thought out, step-by-step progression. You will eventually gain the skills and knowledge to play your instrument at whatever proficiency level you desire. When teaching, I divide skills into smaller units so that you will always be successful. I like to give you immediate, honest, and specific feedback after each time you play your instrument for me. I always respect my students and acknowledge the effort that they put forth.

Since music reading skills take time to become equal to playing skills, I usually teach music reading skills after the first six to eight months of lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Classrooms in building, space for parents to wait in lobby, nursery for parents with younger children.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching fiddle and the classical Suzuki violin and viola method.

About Dave
I own a local music/art/production institution which hosts lessons for many instruments and artistic pursuits. Personally, I've been teaching for over 17 years, and I teach beginner to advanced students in instruments like guitar, bass, piano/keys, voice, and drums, and depending on your needs, our studio offers a variety of professional teachers that teach all woodwind, brass, and stringed instruments.

I also am an online teacher for a the world's biggest web platform for guitar instruction, and teach lessons alongside those in Berklee alumni, Musician's Institute, as well with many very famous artists that are now in the music business.

Though I've had the fortune to work with some of the best in studios, as a songwriter, and player, and in education, both professional and informal, I love to teach entry level players up through
the intermediate levels the most. I enjoy watching people discover things for the first time, and in my teaching I really do my best to craft my lessons to the needs of the students. My primary aim in teaching is that I would cultivate in my students a love for music and learning. With these two things in place, a student can go on to be and learn anything.

Join me and my studio. We'll have a great time, and we'll get you to your goals while we're enjoying the journey of music together!!

About Lauren
As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.

As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. I am currently an active performer in Los Angeles, and I have played at local venues such as The Echo, Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.

My role as a teacher has also grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Crea
tive Trainer at the Apple store, I have taught customers computer skills and Pro-Apple software such as Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. In addition to teaching adults, I have taught music production and Ableton to children ages 10-15 at Girls Rock camp. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past four years, and I have done consulting sessions to determine work efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles.

Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.

She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.

About Nick
Hi. My name is Nick, and I'm a professional saxophonist. I graduated from the Nizhniy Novgorod conservatory (Russian Federation) in 2013, with a mark of excellence and an honors degree diploma. Currently live in New York City.

I teach any of you willing to learn to play the sax – at any skill level, age or trade. For our music classes, we can make use of any means at our disposal. Let us have a lesson at my professional studio, in your home or on Skype. I will not only teach you how to extract hypnotizing musical sounds but also share the basics of musical notation, the gift of improvisation and playing to accompaniment.

My teaching experience in itself equals to some 10 years.
Through this time period, I have been working with Beginner to Advanced-level students of any ages. We have been practicing in my professional studio, at m
y trainees’ premises or via Skype.
To any student of mine I offer a tried-and-true combination of techniques that have eventually made up my state-of-the-art teaching methodic.
It contains, but is not limited to, the following:
- establish the basis of musical theory including learning musical notation and reading scores;
- gaining extensive practice through performing popular classic to hit tunes;
- getting to know how to play to accompaniment;
- learning how to improvise in a variety of genres.
Truth be told, I really pride myself on offering all extras without your overpaying. As what I am longing for is:
- developing beginner musicians’ skill;
- giving rise to intermediate-level saxophonists’;
- polishing advanced sax players’ mastery.
And, no doubt, helping prepare for an upcoming concert or competition is an option, too, - and quite an honorable task for me.
So let us arrange a meeting and discuss my tailor-made offer – just for you!

About Maiya
Hey there! I'm glad you're here :) If you're on this sight, it probably means you're passionate about music! So look at that, we already have something in common. Or no? Perhaps your just curious. Maybe you have always wanted to see how people can make a metal tube sing, or perhaps your precious child has been BEGGING you to take lessons but you're unsure because you know you wont be able to help them? I get it, and you are still in the right place.

I grew up around music, and was always so in love with the arts. I did everything from dance to painting but nothing compared to the profound experience of making music. Music has influenced my life in so many ways. It has always been a form of release, expression, and passion in times both good and bad. It gave me the opportunity to hear, rather than see, my own hard work bring success. I
t brought me contentment where I never realized I needed it. However, there is one thing that music will never fail to bring to my life, and that is joy. My goal in pursing music is that I can help others experience that same joy, and allow music to have the same amazing impact on them as it did on me.

Sound like something you're interested in? Have questions about my experience? Maybe questions about my method of teaching? Feel free to shoot me a message and I would be so glad to speak with you about any question you may have! Let's meet so we can continue down your musical path together!

Cory is terrific! Knowledgable, enthusiastic, and very patient in working with my super limited knowledge. He was always willing to rephrase or help me visualize something when I wasn’t getting it. A few lessons with him have given me the confidence and preparation I need to finally go through with an audition!

Hi there! If you want to learn to play violin from Tchaikovsky to Rock and Roll I can't wait to work with you. I play classical music as well as Irish fiddling and Klesmer music. I play a traditional violin and an electric one and love working with both. Violin doesn't have to be boring, I'm here to tell you that there is much more than Mozart for this stringed instrument.
