From first lesson beginners to highly advanced students; and from simple songs to elaborate music theory, improvisation, and songwriting development; all are welcome to sign up with this patient, and highly recommended teacher.
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. Writing and recording in several different styles over the years; and also being a vocalist and songwriter; he founded Indie Fusion trio The Static Dia
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.

Bill has been an wonderful instructor so far, and each lesson we work on what I want to improve on or learn about. He's very knowledgeable, talented, and all round fun to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone interested in playing bass!

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.

My sophomore daughter has enjoyed taking trumpet lessons from Dr. Wyrick this school year. He has been consistent, creative and enthusiastic. She looks forward to her scheduled lesson each week and shares only positive experiences with us. As a parent, I appreciate Dr. Wyrick's kind demeanor and knowledge base. We definitely see progress and increased confidence in our trumpet player. She even received a superior rating on her trumpet solo at this year's Solo and Ensemble Festival in January.

I am a 46 year old man and I have always wanted to play the guitar, so I finally bought a guitar last year. I had tried to teach myself by using a lesson book from the guitar store, then I tried to learn from an instructor on-line. I became frustrated with both attempts, finding I was not understanding what the book and the on-line instructor was trying to teach. I also tried another instructor, but became quickly discouraged by his teaching methods and even stopped playing for about 6 months. When I started taking lessons from Jerry, I actually got excited to play again. I only have a small amount of time to practice so my progress has been very slow, but Jerry has always been patient and encouraging. I had learned more from Jerry in the first few lessons than I had in all of the other methods combined. I started with Jerry really believing that I was physically unable to finger the strings on my guitar, but Jerry took the time to see what I was doing wrong and gave me help on how to correct the issues.

About Annie
I am a professional singer, songwriter, voice and piano teacher, and guest soloist at the Historic First Congregational Church of Detroit. I have a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, where I studied voice with Robert Powell and Helen Laird, and I was mentored by Maestro Max Rudolph, conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, with whom I made my professional singing debut in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as the lead soprano. I was awarded the Bertha Bauer Full Four-Year Scholarship and the John A. Hoffman Award for highest GPA in Voice. I won the Martha Baird Rockefeller Music Fund Award and the Jean Tennyson Music Award for outstanding accomplishments in music. I was guest soloist with the Washington National Symphony in Baltimore, the New York Youth Symphony, the
Rochester Symphony, and the Cincinnati Music Festival. I also represented the United States in the International Competitions in Montreal, and I was a finalist in the coveted Metropolitan Opera auditions in New York. I was contracted with the Deutsche Oper am Rhein (the German Opera on the Rhine Company), where I was the leading young dramatic soprano, and I toured with the company seven years.

I received my Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Wayne State University College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, where I performed various opera roles and studied Vocal Pedagogy. I was guest soprano with the Rackham Symphony Orchestra and Friends of the Opera in Dearborn, the Menc conference, and the Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor. I was also artistic director of the Arts Center Music School in Detroit where I taught all levels of voice and fundamental piano. One of my voice students is enrolled in a major music school in New York, another is a songwriter and recording artist in Detroit, and another recently auditioned and was accepted into the Mosaic Youth Theater in Detroit.

In addition to guest solo appearances, I currently have two works in progress, including, a monolog with my original composition, and a demo for a new CD featuring my original compositions.

Jonathan taught me when I was around middle school age and has left a lasting impression on how I approach the bass and music 10-ish years later. Under his tutelage I learned music theory, techniques, and all sorts of different genres and styles.

His lessons were always very professional. I always felt challenged, but not overwhelmed, by the material being taught. He also made it easy to be interested in the lessons; he would always ask if there's any song or genre that I wanted to learn and that sort of thing.

Overall, definitely a 5/5 top shelf educator and musician.

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.

Hey guys my name is Trent I have been playing music for most of my life, specifically guitar and bass. Ever since I was young I have always had an interest in music. When I was around the age of 9 I got my first guitar and haven't stopped playing since.
My musical background as I got older expanded through middle school and high school I did choir. Anytime in choir classes our class needed a guitarist for a piece I was always the one that got put up on the block for it.
