lessons from a patient working professional with years of performing and teaching experience

About Michael

I have been performing since age 7 playing classical piano in recitals with my sister. I got my first guitar at the age of 12. At 15 I was playing around town with different bands. After years of playing in garage bands, I applied to Wayne State University and enrolled in their music department. I

Outstanding Teacher

I came to Mike with 25 years of playing experience and was expecting to grind through theory like I've done with past instructors. We jammed for a couple of minutes at our first lesson and he took it in a totally different direction, which has been amazing!!! He is so incredibly tuned in to what each individual student needs that he knew what I needed way before I figured it out. I love his approach to playing, which for an advanced player, focuses on getting ideas from your head to your fingers and I love that he teaches the theory aspect of playing, not as the focus, but as an explanation of why certain ideas work and certain ones don't. He doesn't jam theory down your throat, so lessons and practice are truly enjoyable and don't feel like a chore.

In addition to be a truly gifted teacher, Mike is just an awesome dude -- it's obvious that he loves to teach and really invests himself in getting his students to where they want to go. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Ryan S.
Great experience!

Mike is an outstanding teacher. As a total guitar novice, his patience and instructional ability really helped me take small steps into a much bigger world. Between the in studio lessons and the exercises he gave me to do at home, I really feel like I learned a great deal in a short time period. I hope to work with him again in the future and would strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of guitar lessons.
Nataly L.
Wonderful Teacher

My son has been taking lessons with Michael for about a year, and we are both very satisfied customers. When my son first came to Mike, he was anxious about his upcoming audition for the top jazz band at his school. Mike helped him prepare and feel more confident, and he was able to earn his place in the band. Since then Mike has worked with him on technique and style and helped him progress incredibly. Mike is a great teacher, very professional, and a super person!

My students can expect to have a balanced practice life starting with daily routines/trombone maintenance, continuing to etudes and technical studies, and ultimately finishing with musical repertoire. I give my students the skills on how to become efficient practicers, which is essential if he/she wishes to make regular improvements on the trombone. My goal is to create a comfortable atmosphere in which students can feel free to express themselves through the music they play. I keep students mentally engaged by asking them questions that are intended to direct them toward creating a clear, personal interpretation of their music. This gives the student a sense of artistic authority and ownership over their playing and creates more enjoyment in daily practicing.

My daughter really likes Rachel. She feels that Rachel is a good teacher and even in the first lesson, she learned something new that she feels will make her a better trombone player.
Kyler S.
Actually, It is my son who is the beginning trombone student. But he is very happy with Rachel's instruction. She is obviously a very skilled musician, she sets a definite program and expectations for her students, and exhibits great patience as well.
Ivy D.
Rachel was patient with my daughter and was helpful not just with the technical piece but helped her to be more confident in herself.

Utilizing different games and activities to help each student learn Music Theory concepts.
Explaining and experiencing Music Theory in areas not used in the classroom, based on the students learning styles.
Some of the past events students participated in, included a Football Event during the Super Bowl, a Summer and Winter Olympic Event and few practice challenges, where students had to complete a series of Music Theory Events to advocate for their success. All of the students did very well completing the events needed and learned new techniques in creative ways.

"It is such a joy working with Christine. I was extremely nervous to start voice lessons because the voice you're given is who you are, it is a very vulnerable art form. Christine made me feel very comfortable and helped me to sing the best with the voice that I was given. Her ability to diagnose and remedy problems in technique was stellar. I am much more confident in my abilities and willing to share my voice with other people. I know I wouldn't have been able to do that if it weren't for Christine. I would recommend her as a teacher one hundred times over!!"
