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 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 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!

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 only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Drumming is almost entirely muscle memory. I believe that anyone who wants to play drums, can play drums. I have systems implemented in my own practice routine that allow me to become a more precise, tasteful, and musical drummer. I can work with whatever skill level you are at. I teach timing, groove, rudiments, applying rudiments behind the drum set, theory, musicality behind the drum set, limb independence, odd timing, polyrythms, and much more. Thank you, I hope to hear from you!

There are a number of reasons someone may wish to take music lessons. Whatever the specific reason, striving to achieve one’s “artistic truth” is the goal. My holistic view of education is to help a student find his/her own individual “voice” as a singer and a creative artist. I believe the role of an educator is not to relay information in a detached context, what I call teaching “at” a student, but to lead that student in a discussion of the music, pulling information from the student in a collaborative effort between two or more individuals. It is my goal to facilitate an emotionally safe environment for students to take risks, make mistakes, listen critically, and articulate his/her thoughts. We work towards freedom of expression and letting go of fear. Fear is the single greatest enemy of any artist: If you're afraid of how your music will go, you won't be making art.
A healthy mind, body, and spirit all work together to make a strong, whole individual. The development of ...

Brayton is incredibly talented and passionate about his craft. This is very evident as he continues to share his talent through vocal coaching. I walked into his office without any prior vocal coaching, and walked out not only as a better singer, but musician as well. Brayton does a wonderful job of not only making sure you are physically singing well, but also mentally as he instructs you in music theory and anatomy of the voice. Brayton and I discussed my goals as a vocalist and went right to work the next day to achieve them. His pacing is very well thought out. I never felt like I was rushed or dragging during my time with him. Although I was lacking in experience at the time, Brayton never looked down on me and met me at my level and pushed me to the success I dreamed of. Thanks to Brayton, I was able to continue my dream of attaining a Bachelors degree in music and becoming vocally competitive. I can not say enough good things about Brayton's skill, talent, and dedication as a vocal coach. I would highly recommend him to any signer, at any level or age. Please, do yourself a favor and reach out to him soon! I was SO happy I did!

Has your ex piano teacher made you learn pieces that you didn't want to learn and now you're looking for a new instructor? Look no further as you have come to the right place. I teach exactly what you want to learn, whether it be classical music or a pop song you just heard on Spotify. I've comfortably taught students ranging from the ages of 8-60, so don't be afraid to start at a later age!

My boss handed me a couple of students to teach and I drove to their house. I still remember when they were grumpy that they weren't makin

Andrew is exceptionally talented with a keen ear. He was very understanding and flexible to my needs and open to the pieces I wanted to learn. Reasonably priced to allow long term instruction and consistent lessons.

My daughter liked his teaching style which is most important. He was also very professional during the piano lesson, and he taught her pieces that she had trouble practicing on her own. He is very flexible in teaching anything the student likes.

"I took lessons from Andrew for about 9 months. I’m an adult non-professional sax player who just wanted to continue to learn and work on improvisation. I felt the lessons were really well tailored to my situation and goals. Andrew recognized what my existing playing level was, including where I had some weaknesses. I improved a lot over a short period of time, and stretched my abilities in jazz improvisation. We did a lot of tune learning, transcription and ear training. Andrew is skilled at piano as well, so it was helpful when he would play chords and progressions on piano and have me work over the top of it to give me time to hear and experiment with feedback."

"To say that my opera lessons with Margo have been miraculous would be an understatement. My family and friends had repeatedly encouraged me to pursue my singing and I wrote it off as hyperbole. When I finally decided to take it seriously I was afraid I was too old to start pursuing a career in the arts. Margo explained to me that some performers can be in their 30s or 40s before reaching full vocal maturity. She immediately took me under her wing which has resulted in near perfect pitch. Under her tutelage I have learned to evoke emotion from my audience thru both song and dramatization. Needless to say, her being multi-lingual has no doubt made her uniquely qualified to do so. If you want a disciplined, dedicated, no nonsense instructor, call her. You won't be disappointed."

Equally as importantly as his knowledge and high skill level, he is a patient and kind man who is great with kids. He built a strong relationship with my son and as a result, Luis loves playing drums.
