About Kathy
I am a patient, enthusiastic teacher in the following areas: piano, violin, cello, drums, music history, and music theory. I have taught vocal and instrumental music in both Catholic and Public schools, and in after-school programs, for 20 years, and have been giving private lessons for 9 years. I enjoy teaching music to all age students, and especially enjoy watching my students grow in their music ability.

I received my Bachelor of Arts from Marygrove College in Detroit in Language Arts with minors in Music Education and History,and my Masters Degree from Wayne State University in Education with emphasis on English as a Second Language and Sign Language for the Deaf. I have studied Music Education for K-5 at Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan.
I am also a published author of five children's books. You can find them through my
publisher Xlibris. com and they are called Peggy, The Three-Some Book 2, The Writer's Corner Book 3, The Golden Nugget Book 4, The 1940 Diary Book 7. When you go onto their web-site put in my pen name of N.K.Beckley and they should come up. Emily Book 5 will be out sometime in March 2017 and books 6,8.9.10 should be out by Fall of 2017. These are books for students in grades 4th through 8th grades and are also interactive books. I hope you enjoy them.
I also tutor for Take Lessons Grades 1 to Grade 8 all subjects except higher level Math.

*** Lesson Details ***
Piano: All students start out learning both Treble and Bass Clefs, and their lines and spaces. Each student then starts to learn their major scales with both right and left hand for piano. They also learn the note values, and are able to put them together in a song. I use Michael Aaron curriculum, which takes in all of the above and their technique lessons. I use all the Michael Aaron Book One, Lessons, Theory, Technic, and Performance Books for any student that is age 6 and above and I would ask that parents would buy them from Anderson Music in Dearborn, Michigan as well as any other lesson books listed below before they come to my home for lessons.

Cello: Using String Builder and Strictly Strings, the students learn the bass clef, lines and spaces, scales, and songs. Students will learn how to hold their bow correctly.I have played cello in the Waterford New Horizons Concert Band for over six years. I have also been the only cellist they have as a member of the band.

Violin: Using String Builder and Strictly Strings, students will learn lines and spaces of the treble clef, note values, major scales, and songs. Students will learn how to hold their bow correctly.

Drums: Using Rockin’ Rhythm Raps, and using drum pads instead of drums, students will learn the correct way to hold drum sticks and the rhythms of all the notes in the treble and bass clefs. They will also learn songs to play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano w/ seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy teaching beginners in any area, because then you can see how far they have come at the end of the year.

I have recently returned from a week long stay at the Sonatina Piano Camp in Bennington VT and would like to notify all those piano students who may read this review as to the wonderful experience attending this camp can be. The camp takes adult piano students at all piano skill levels from beginner to well accomplished. Students stay in shared rooms (2-4 persons) which includes a piano in every room. Attendance is usually 18- 27 persons. The mansion itself is home to approx. 30 pianos. All meals are provided (and are outstanding) as well as piano classes and 4 lessons with concert pianists or university piano professors. Ample time is provided to practice a performance piece for the end of week performance night. Master classes are given on several evenings for those wishing to perform a work in progress piece for the attendees and the camp owner providing a public lesson.
I have found that the attending student group to be extremely supportive to all other students especially to those experiencing performance anxiety. Repeating attendees (from all over the country) have formed lasting friendships among themselves which have endured for years. Eight week long sessions are given throughout the year. In addition there are summer sessions for school aged youth
and also 4 short week sessions for those wishing to try a sampling of the camp. This past January was my 3rd year attending the camp and I will be returning again next year. My experiences at the camp have been truly unforgettable. More information can be obtained at Sonatina.com

Kathy has worked wonders with my piano lessons. In about a year and half of lessons Kathy has added scales and exercises along with musical selections designed to enhance specific skills, plus has worked with me on select piano works which I find interesting and challenging. My abilities and quality of playing been steadily improving. She is always positive and uplifting yet she still can point out areas of playing quality which require work. She gears lessons and advancement of difficulty to my specific rate of improvement. I couldn't ask for better and and am looking forward to continued progress over time for my improved musicianship.

She has produced a marked improvement in my piano playing over the course of my lessons and I look forward to continuing that with her for the future.

Teachers are nice, (specifically Ms. Patty and Ms. Linda), very professional, not or not so strict, not intimidating and very patient to the students. Both of them have very good experience in their own field of music knowledge and are very willing to share or pass on their expertise. With that, kids are always motivated to learn and attend every session, not to mention the rewards, student (i believe for younger kids only)can redeem for the good performance after a certain period. Location is good, studio is cool, cozy and very clean.

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.

Valentina, is a wonderful teacher, She gets me used to hearing the language, since much of the fluidity of a new language revolves around the ear and hearing, and pronouncing the new words. She has given me a language course with background, and a grounding in grammar; and helps me with the words and idioms the I will use when I am in Italy. I am extremely happy with my lessons.

You will feel that your singing is improving from the very first lesson. I did and I highly recommend you Viviana, I think everyone can become the top-rated singer with her help.

About Jordan
! Hi! I'm Jordan :). I'm currently a senior at St. Edwards University that is majoring in International Business. I have always had a passion for learning about other cultures, especially when it comes to Japan. This is why I have spent an embarrassing amount of time learning about both the Japanese language and culture. I am currently in my third semester of official Japanese classes and have been studying Japanese for 3 years. While I am not 100% "fluent" in Japanese yet I do know quite a bit. To contest this I will be offering a drastically lower hourly rate than is normal. I'm okay with doing this because my primary motivation behind being your tutor is not to make money, but rather to further practice my Japanese while getting you started on your journey as well. What i'm essentially offering is what you would learn during your first
two semesters in a university level class. As I mentioned before I'm a huge nerd when it comes to Japan so my lessons will also include learning about the culture (which is important to understanding the language). I'm also deeply rooted in the Japanese community here on campus and love to get my students involved with them whenever I get the chance.

I like my lessons to cater to each students individual needs and learning style. For example the way I teach young children versus a college or high school student will differ greatly. I also love learning about each students story and what their motivation is behind learning Japanese. Some people learn because they want to watch anime without subtitles (that's right i'm talking to all you nerds out there) while others are interested in living in Japan or possibly studying abroad. The way my class is taught will depend on my students motivation and interests for learning the language. As I mentioned before I believe learning about Japanese culture is vitally important to properly understanding the language(this is true for any language). With this in mind I love to teach about Japanese culture alongside the language during my lessons. For example, 75% of our time together may be spent learning the language while the remaining 25% will focus on a range of topics from Japanese history to proper etiquette in Japan. I have a very flexible schedule and have no problem driving to meet you as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have! I look forward to exploring the beautiful world of Japan with you in the future! :)
