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 have 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 ...

My son has really enjoyed his lessons with Mitch and he thinks Mitch is a great teacher. "He keeps it challenging and you learn different things each time" (building on past material). Mitch has also encouraged my son when he has thought out of the box, such as designing his own rhythms or drumming on various surfaces such as buckets. He meets my son where he is at and encourages him to grow from there.

As a parent, I have found Mitch to be extremely professional. He is prompt, or if on the rare occasion is running late, he calls to let us know. He is flexible with scheduling and very easy to work with. It has been a wonderful experience for us so far, and my son is really enjoying his lessons.
Carrie A. Monclova, OH

About Carrie

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 10 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~ *** Lesson Details *** I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about ...

Carrie is a wonderful instructor with my teenage daughter. She has the right teaching skills to push her when needed and has her always reaching for more. Her variety of instructing skills is what makes her great. She makes the lessons fun, beneficial and full of challenges. I would recommend her to everyone. My daughter has been going to her for almost 1 full year now and the difference is amazing. Besides her singing her confidence with stage and performing has exceeded my expectations. Thank you Carrie!!!

Ben is a wonderful teacher. Ben is patient while I learn new techniques. I learn new techniques every session which is important to me to keep on learning and keep on improving. Ben and I play together in review of what I have learned which is fun and it teaches me about music timing, rhythm and more. I have brought some songs to Ben and we review and play. I feel thus far I have made great strides as a guitarist and hope to make more.

Marie K. Ypsilanti, MI

About Marie

Music can be found in every part of the world in every culture and there is nothing better than to be able to make your own music. I am a dramatic soprano and possess my master's degree in vocal performance and am still active as an opera singer around the country. I have a real passion for music and enjoy opening the doors for you to have the same enjoyment; and if we hit a road block there are always windows that can be opened! I have taken music lessons since I was five, so I am familiar with the trials and tribulations faced at all levels by music students and I have the patience and ability to work with you to achieve your musical goals. I have worked as a private teacher for several years with students as young as five and as old as mid-eighties and believe all that is required

My lessons with Marie are perfect for me. She is a very positive person which adds to my excitement of learning. Marie also understands that each person has areas of music that are easier to grasp than others areas and provides me with worksheets for my difficult areas; very helpful. Marie is also able to recognize how much I can do in a week (how many pages in the lesson and technique books) so I don't feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed.

I look forward to many more lessons with Marie and give her a 5 star rating. BTW, she comes to my house, which I appreciate, which allows me to play on my own piano for lessons.

Marie is patient and fun

Marie is my wife. However, she has also helped me learn piano. I am not good, however, she is patient with me. Let's face it, if she can teach me, she can teach anyone!

Marie is very talented (all husbandly love aside). She sings like an angel even when she would say she is doing terribly.

She enjoys teaching and goes the extra mile, often spending hours a week after lessons making sure her students have the warmups needed, music examples, and anything else you can think of to help them.

And, like I said, if my wife can teach her husband piano with a smile on her face, she can have patience working with anyone.
