I can teach guitar and bass (4 string 5 string and fretless) and college level music theory, composition and songwriting. I am also confident teaching left handed students and am great with younger students. If you have any questions, feel free to call, text, or email

About Edwin
I'm a Sound Designer specializing in ukulele, drums and percussion. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University, where I received a degree in Communication and trained as a classical musician.

About the Lessons*
Students can expect to be challenged and reach goals that they set for themselves. I believe that each student is an individual capable of anything they set their minds to! I will customize every lessons to best suit the student's way of learning.

My Reason*
I love music and I believe that with music a person is able to express themselves and their emotions better than with words. I love teaching because I get to share my love of music and inspire. My favorite part is watching as the student's eyes gleam in excitement when they finally understand a part that's been troubling them.

I am kind, patient, and understan
ding. I will never give my students more work than they can handle nor would I give them a challenge I didn't think they would be able to succeed. I like to have fun teaching my lessons, so I hope you have fun learning.

I look forward to learning and growing with you!

About Hannah
Hello!
I am looking forward to meeting you and your child! I'd love to do introductions in person, but let me tell you a few things about me:

I am a Michigan-born twenty-something who recently got married (yay!). Before moving to Kentwood to live with my husband, I taught piano at Marshall Music in Kalamazoo and was an Administrative Assistant at a local church for about 4 years.
Before that I received my Bachelors in Business Administration and a Minor in Music at Indiana Wesleyan University. I was homeschooled all the way from Kindergarten to 12th grade and graduated with my other homeschool friends.

I have taken piano lessons for about 20 years and have learned a few things from my amazingly talented teachers. One, develop a relationship with your student by having conversations about everyday life, two, have a great structur
ed reward system for students who practice, and three, ALWAYS have fun.

There are a few things on the side that I like to do or have done in the past (this information might be useful to tell your son or daughter). I was a very busy homeschool student. Sports were very important to me growing up, I did softball, volleyball and soccer. I also was highly involved in performing arts. I currently enjoy doing crafts like sewing, card making, refinishing furniture, and cooking/baking. I am also a pet lover!

I can't wait to learn more about you at our first lesson.

Excelente teacher who taught my son four years. He did not know anything when he got started and Hannah taught him to play the piano and to love music. He is loving it so much that now he plays the piano an also trombone in band too, thanks to Hannah. She is such a great teacher that I ended up taking clases too and I am loving it. She makes it really fun.

Hannah is a very sweet and patient young lady. I took piano lessons from her a few years ago. I didn't know how to read music and had never played before. At age 60 it was one of the things I wanted to accomplish on my bucket list. She helped me achieve that.
I highly recommend her for anyone. Young or old!

Hannah is not only a wonderful piano teacher, she is also a wonderful person. She is kind and cares about her students. At the same time, she sets high expectations for them to achieve success. We feel lucky to have found Hannah. She taught my daughter to love music, and to work hard."

About Zach
Hello! I'm a full-time private music tutor who currently teaches over 50 lessons each week. In 2007, I began studying the education of historical child prodigies, like Mozart and Picasso, and the curriculums they used as children. At the same time, I was studying cognitive neuroscience, which informed my practice as a teacher. In 2009, I opened a set of fine arts studios for kids which was dedicated to teaching arts that improved the developing brain.

In 2015, I published an article on cognitive ergonomics on the practice of optimizing learning materials for ease and efficiency. In 2016, I filed a patent on a music notation system cognitively optimized for young beginners on piano and stringed instruments, especially violin, viola, cello, and guitar, and started a website designed for self-learning, kindergarten-to-college. As the lead
curriculum designer, my job is to make a modern music curriculum more successful at getting young beginners started loving to play music than any other in the world.

I'm currently beginning work on the foreign language song sets for German, Spanish, and French, as well as the Partner Song Series, which is based directly on a piano curriculum written by Bach for his students, and was used by both Mozart and Beethoven as children!

I've worked with many special needs learners, including ADD/ADHD, low IQ, Autism, Down Syndrome, and blind students. The nature of my curriculum, designed for very young learners, naturally accommodates older learners with special needs.

I really appreciated that Zach was very understanding and flexible with crazy changing work schedules. He does a good job of mixing music theory, technical exercises, while still being open and even encouraging the student to working on styles and pieces they are interested in and enjoy. Zach is great about asking the student what they want to learn and work on, while still making sure that they are always learning something new and always pushing themselves. Zach always seems to genuinely care and get excited about music, teaching, and his students.

Zach is very personable and figured out a great method to motivate my reluctant child--fake money!! He also developed his own musical notation to aid in helping students learn how to read music but in such a way that isn't as complicated as the standard notation. My son really likes him.

My daughter is very shy and quiet. Zach is fantastic and she loves him! He is patient and funny. His way of teaching works! She is just 6 years old and is already playing songs after just 6 weeks. His music curriculum is so easy to understand and play! We've been very impressed.

About Nicole
Nicole Frazee, a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, began playing the flute at age thirteen. At a young age, Frazee showed great promise as a musician and was piccolo/third flute of the Grand Rapids Youth Symphony under the direction of John Varineau, Associate Conductor of the Grand Rapids Symphony. She received her Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance in 2009 from Grand Valley State University, where she studied under Judith Kemph (flute/piccolo of the Grand Rapids Symphony) and Nancy Stagnitta. Her freshman year she was winner of the chamber orchestra concerto competition, and later a winner of the upper division scholarship competition, symphony orchestra scholarship and symphonic wind ensemble scholarship. During her years at Grand Valley, Frazee was very involved in the performing ensembles. She was principle flute of the symp
honic wind ensemble, piccolo/third flute of the symphony orchestra, and piccolo/third flute of the pit orchestra. She was also principle flute and piccolo of the GVSU New Music Ensemble, under the direction of distinguished composer Bill Ryan. In 2009, Frazee was one of four students from the New Music Ensemble invited to perform In C at Carnegie Hall with Terry Riley, the Kronos Quartet, and other new music all-stars in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the work. The same year, Frazee was a performer with the New Music Ensemble on their CD, In C: Remixed, recorded by River City Studios. In C: Remixed was nominated for a Grammy, and referred to by Terry Riley as “...one of the best performances of In C ever...” The Washington Post, Time Out Chicago and All About Jazz named In C:Remixed as one of the top ten classical releases of 2009.
Frazee earned her Master of Music degree in 2011 from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, where she studied with Dr. Christine Gustafson and received a tuition scholarship and graduate flute assistantship. While at East Carolina, Frazee was principle flute of the symphony orchestra and symphonic wind ensemble, third flute/piccolo of the pit orchestra, and was a student member of the ECU Faculty’s Eastern Symphony Orchestra.
Frazee is both an active performer and teacher. She has attended many master classes throughout the United States and Canada and has had the opportunity to work with such flutists as Carol Wincenc, Nicholas Duchamp, Regina Helcher Yost, Nina Assimakopolous, Valerie Coleman, Denis Bluteau and world-renowned violinist, Dylana Jenson.
