About Tuesday
I have been singing and playing piano all of my life. I took my first music lesson I was just three years old I never looked back! After high school I earned my Bachelor of Music Performance and my Master of Music. I attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. It was in Louisiana where I began my teaching career, about fifteen years ago.

After returning to Michigan, I began teaching K-12 music in both public and private school settings. I currently maintain a private studio in addition to teaching voice part-time at two of local colleges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I emphasize a standard classical approach. I thrive on good, solid technique. This will enable students to master any type of music they wish to study.

Students begin with basic music theory. This
is essential for anyone taking a music lesson. Piano students are ages 5 and up.

Once a student has a good foundation, the sky is the limit. These principles can be applied to any genre of music; classical, sacred, pop, rock, the choice is yours! Every student is different and has different goals. We will work together to make sure that you can achieve them and excel!

Starting guitar lessons at a very young age; Bill went on to win many regional, national, and international awards through out his formative years as a student.

l in 2010 as it's leader. The band has worked with several national and international touring bands, has been featured on indie and major radio from their hometown in Detroit to the UK, and has released an EP, two singled, and a full length album.
Feel free to message with any questions about potential lessons; we'd love to hear from you!.

*** Lesson Details ***
As an instructor, I start students with the basics (open chords, major/minor and blues scales, general rhythm/timing, and beginner technique), and like to get at least a basic ability to sight read (music notation).

For younger students, I get them started on a beginner book for sight reading music and simple/basic songs to start with and build up their ability.

If a student is a little more capable, we start on a more modern/popular song they like. For my more advanced students, we get into music theory (cycle of fifths, harmony, chord language, etc.) and with some students we study specific genres.

My approach is one of building up a student's self confidence, and ultimately making learning fun. I take teaching seriously and value my student's time; so I work to get the most out of them, and to make their lessons worth while. All ages and levels are welcome!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio space in Helen's of Troy. Office is furnished with seating, music stand, and amplifier.
Student must have their own instrument and pick.

*** Specialties ***
I'm a singer/songwriter as well as a guitar player/instructor, so the construction and arranging of a song; from the music to the lyrics; are very much within my experience and teaching.

Bill is a great teacher. We have covered rock lead, rock rhythm, finger picking, strumming patterns all while learning new songs and expanding my playing base. I had tried to self teach back in the 1990s so had some bad habits, Bill has worked with my to fix these so I can play more fluidly. Bill is very accommodating to what I want to learn while pushing the expansion of my ability. It's been a very enjoyable experience.

Bill is a wonderful Instructor and truly talented! He is very patient, specially when you have zero experience in Guitar before, that is what you expect from your instructor. He is motivating and always comes up with tips and tricks to make my lesson easy. He is very flexible with the timings. Also, I really enjoy my classes.

I'd recommend him to anyone interested in playing bass!

About Nicholas
Detroit native, Nicholas C. K., demonstrated an innate musical talent from a young age. His command of piano, guitar, trumpet and bass progressed to studies at both Columbia University in Chicago and Wayne State University in Detroit. Since age 16 Nic has toured the country sharing the stage with acclaimed rock acts such as; Tesla, Bret Michaels, 3 Doors Down and many others. He is currently endorsed by Warwick Basses.

Nicholas been a musician in some form or another for as long as he can remember. His musical journey started when he was only six, with a delve into the realm of classical piano. While there he studied under world class child prodigy Josh Cullen. The composers that he studied include Bach, Beethoven, Barton, Hayden and many others.

From here he progressed to playing jazz trumpet, studying the Jamey Aebersold method un
der Paul Finkbeiner, the lead trumpet player for the Paul Keller Ensemble.

Then at the age of 11, with the help of his grandfather he discovered the guitar. He learned quickly on his old SR guitar. He quickly discovered that he had a natural taste for blues phrasing, and his soloing abilities quickly blossomed. 2 years later, he had formed his first band, Spherical. It was through this band that he found the bass.

His journey into the realm of bass, began out of necessity and progressed into love of the bottom end. Since then, he has been collecting basses, playing, living and breathing bass. He now realizes the importance of a funky beat, a subtle line and most important of all A Tight Groove!!!

The benefit of studying under someone with a vast array of both talent and experience is clear.

About Haley
I currently teach at the Grosse Pointe Music academy and I am looking to fill some open slots in my morning/mid day schedule. I am a past songwriting music student at DIME. Dime is a new music college in Detroit. I was torn between Berklee and DIME but decided to stay home and pursue a professional music career. I am in a band with three Berklee Students called SIAS. (siasmusic.net) I was classically trained in piano and generally teach the classical method to my students. I have some experience with the Suzuki method as well. I encourage students to play what they want to play. I like to let the students control how they want to spend the lesson time, whether that be time working on their ear training, classical method, singing along, or creating original songs. The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the musical journey.

Haley is great! She is very flexible with my son's schedule and understanding. My really enjoys her as a teacher and he has come leaps and bounds from where he started weeks ago. He will be playing in his school's talent show after only having played for a few months. She is very caring and nurturing to my son and allows him to move at a pace that he is comfortable with while also pushing him to focus.

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!

About Michael
Hello, my name is Michael. I began giving private lessons age 17, while still in high school, only offering voice at the time. Within another two years I added piano and music theory to the fold. I started this to help those wanting all the musical knowledge that one could gain, or those just looking to better their skill. My private tutoring and instructing lessons started here in Detroit, and has taken me as far as Las Vegas, NV. My goal remains to provide an excellent musical experience to various students at the most affordable rates. Also, I offer academic tutoring to those who need that as well.

I started taking lessons from Michael about two years ago and I knew hardly anything about playing piano. I knew a few children's songs just by messing around on the instrument, but nothing further. Michael taught me how to apply music theory to piano so that I know what's going on musically, and know how to play what's going on musically. He's great if you ask me. He's very knowledgeable, yet admits that he himself is still learning and growing.

About Ruth
I currently have students ranging in age from 5 years old to 69 years old. I started teaching in 2006 when one of my pianist colleagues referred two of her students to me. One of these original students is a dual seminary/piano major at a college in Wisconsin. Very proud of him! My repertoire is classical, however I must say I have played in 2 bands (dance and rock) and am currently a church musician for a small church in Imlay City. Music is a joyous yet demanding endeavor, and it does require patience, good practice sessions, and focus. I have been very privileged to have studied at MSU under some great concert artists (Mr Votapek and Miss Yong Hi Moon) and further studies with Ms Pauline Martin and Mr Stephen Vaglica.

About Jakarra
Jakarra Howard is a Voice Care Specialist, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Vocal Performance from Kalamazoo College. In addition to her degree, she has gained knowledge of how the voice works through completed course work in Speech Language Pathology including courses in voice disorders and interventions. As a member of the Voice Foundation, Jakarra is currently working toward a Masters in Speech Language Pathology, along with certifications from various vocal health institutions.

Her music career spans more than 15 years and includes various musical performances, along with the opportunity to teach voice and piano to many. She’s had the pleasure of opening for many popular artists, performing a rendition of “The National Anthem” at a Detroit Lions game, and singing for former Michigan House Representative Carolyn Kilpatrick. She has a
lso provided background vocals for many artists, while working on personal music projects. Internationally, Jakarra has performed as the lead vocalist during a tour to Japan with the Kalamazoo Jazz Ensemble.

While performing and teaching, Jakarra began to notice that many singers, including her, were not reaching their full, singing potential. Why? Because the whole body was not totally prepared for the various projects that a singer often encountered. Through this experience, she realized a fascination with the “singing voice” and began to understand that singers are athletes. Therefore, just as athletes train, a singer must also constantly train to keep the voice and body in shape.

Along with her fascination, Jakarra has a passion to help singers perform at their most optimal level. She created Voice Couture Consulting (VCC) to provide a service where singers can learn about their whole body as it relates to their voice and prepare their voice and body for each project. Since everyone is different, VCC custom designs a combination of approaches to specifically fit each singer. This includes a tailored program that provides nutrition and exercise routines. Jakarra believes this program will help singers to know their voices inside and out. From the background singer to the lead vocalist, Jakarra is excited about helping singers reach their full potential!
