Mitchel B.

Toledo, OH

About Mitchel

Hello Students and Parents,

I have been playing several instruments since I was very young, and am excited to share my passion for music with you! I have recently graduated from the Michigan State University College of Music, currently teach music at several public schools, and play in local ensembles.

I have been very fortunate to tour the United States as a drummer with multiple ensembles including The Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps, the Michigan State University Percussion Studio, and the Plymouth Canton Educational Park Drumline.

I love all genres of music. Sometimes I feel that I h
ave no choice but to blast my favorite hip-hop or electronic tunes while on the go. Other days, I immerse myself in the exploration of technique and emotion while perfecting some of Beethoven's late piano compositions.

I spend much of my personal time on artistic ventures such as practicing, performing, drawing, playing poi, and going to concerts. The truth is, music is such a diverse art form that the inspirations and opportunities are endless.

Thanks for checking out my page! I hope that we can start making music together soon.

*** Lesson Details ***
We'll take our first lesson easy with a discussion of your musical goals. I'll want to know things about you such as:
Why are you interested in music lessons?
What music do you like to listen to and what music do you want to play?
Do you have any past experience? Or is this a fresh start?
Do you know of any strengths and weaknesses?

After this, we will begin a regiment that is as personalized as possible. My goal is for you to reach your goals while having fun and working hard. My teachers have always told me that you will take from your lessons what you put into your lessons. I am just as happy teaching the laid back hobby musician, as I am coaching the next Mozart who practices nonstop.

My teaching style comes from a variety of influences. I used to be the student of Drum Corps instructors who had the highest standards for commitment and discipline. Now, I myself work with many special needs students who are exploring art as an emotional outlet, rather than a way of getting a trophy. All in all, I will always do my best to insure that you are on the right path towards reaching your goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I can provide an 88 key Casio with stand, pedal, and chair, as well as drum pads and sticks, worksheets and texts. Students must provide any other instruments they wish to study.

We (parents) find Mitchell to be an interesting and accomplished teacher, he tunes in to our son and even challenges him to venture out of his comfort zone..and some how not be intimidated or turned off by it...it's pretty cool!

Mitch is an incredible teacher. We couldn't be happier with the amount our daughter has learned since beginning her lessons. Mitch works hard to vary the styles of music and incorporates our daughter's interests when choosing music to play. Our daughter is challenged and supported with each piece of music, she is constantly learning new skills and building upon what was taught in previous lessons. She is excited for her lessons each week and sad when it's time for Mitch to go. We couldn't have asked for a better piano teacher!

Brittiny graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in music, concentrating in piano performance. Brittiny was the pianist for the Peterson Warren Academy choir for three years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching and helping others learning about the piano. I am a patient, thorough and dedicated teacher. I will make sure that my student is able to achieve the personal and professional goals that we set together. My teaching style is very in depth, I teach classical, church, contemporary and gospel music genres. I can move at a fast pace or a slower pace, it mostly depends on the student. I feel that everyone has a different learning style and technique and it is best to work along those lines in order to attain the most promising outcome. I will create a very comprehensive lesson plan for the student incorporating their goals as well as my mine. I would expect my student to practice daily and be prepared to learn something new every lesson while also incorporating what they have learned thus far.

Claire D.

Ypsilanti, MI

About Claire

I'm a classically trained soprano with a Bachelor's in Voice Performance from the University of Michigan and a Master's in Voice from the University of Louisville, where I was supported by a full teaching fellowship. I have appeared in concerts, recitals, operas, and musicals across the country and still maintain an active performance and audition schedule.

I specialize in classical voice, including opera, art song, and contemporary classical repertoire. I also love to teach musical theatre, and have experience with both full belt and mix belt singing techniques. I have conversational
facility in French, and can coach diction of French, Italian, German, and Spanish at a highly specific level. I am very comfortable working with students for whom English is not their first language.

As a very experienced auditioner as well as audition panelist, I hope I can be of particular service to students preparing for auditions, be they professional, college, grad school, or community theatre.

Claire is really a one of a kind talent. She is a gorgeous singer with a deeply beautiful voice, great ears, and musicianship for miles.. She is intelligent, entrepreneurial, familiarly acquainted with the industry, and is very kind and supportive to boot. I am lucky enough to have been working full time in the classical music industry for a couple of years now and Claire is one of the most impressive people I have ever worked with.
