JOSEPH H. Clinton Township, MI

About JOSEPH

With my Bachelor's/Master's Degree and 14 years of experience in education, it will be an honor for me to add more to students. *** Lesson Details *** Music study helps people young and old to overcome shyness and build confidence. It empowers them as they refine their special talents. We will study ear training . My Method: Listen, Sing, Clap, Play, Read and Write. With these tools you can look deeper into the elements that make up music. Children don't learn to read before they can talk. So why should anyone have to try to read before they can play? That is how music is taught, traditionally and why a huge percentage of students just quit or have a miserable time with piano lessons. Music should be fun. Period. We will always have a lot of fun, but there is a ...

Great experience!!! Joseph is very knowledgeable. He took the time to assess my skill level and customized a teaching plan that challenged me and also helped me improve. His knowledge of musical theory and the process in which he teaches it keeps me engaged and wanting more.
Charlene G. Macomb, MI

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, either my house or yours. *** 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 ...

Excellent violin teacher

Charlene has done a wonderful job with teaching my 6 year old daughter the fundamentals of playing the violin using the Suzuki method. She has not only helped technically, but has also given my daughter the encouragement and patience necessary to develop her confidence with playing. Her high level of experience and passion for playing the violin is very evident. I would highly recommend Charlene to anyone looking to improve their performance with this instrument.
Nancy C. Sterling Heights, MI

About Nancy

I have been teaching for over 30 years. I love to teach students of all ages. My education is classical in nature and this is how I approach my lessons, but I also mix in current music that is of interest to each particular student. I have also been a church musician for over 40 years. I studied with the Dr. Perkins, Head of the Music Department at Eastern Montana College, now Montana State University, Billings. I have also studied with Dr. Peggy Daugherty, a concert level pianist. I am currently taking classes to obtain a Certificate in Piano Pedagogy.

I am Desiree' Grandfather, and I must say in these past couple months, I have witnessed a true piano master instructor at work. Nancy, is very thorough, patient, friendly and non-threatening. She skillfully applies just the right amount of pressure to get the desired results; even the environment is conducive for music. I was just an observer but if I had to rate Nancy, from 1-10 (1 being the lowest), she would receive a Resounding 10.
Joshua M. New Baltimore, MI

About Joshua

I studied music performance at Central Michigan University under the instruction of Dr. Andrew Spencer. There I focused on many aspects of music including music theory, ear training, composition, arranging, and most importantly performance. I've studied and performed countless percussion instruments, and currently teach and perform in the Detroit area. For myself, music is not a choice. Music wakes me up in the morning, gets me through my day, and helps me wind down at night. Music keeps me organized and focused through goal setting and prioritizing. Music is how I communicate, without it, I'm speechless. Now, for you, my potential student (or parent), music may play a different role in your life. It may be entertainment, it may be a social exercise, it may be family, it may be ...

Josh was my drum line instructor during my last year of high school, and he was the only instructor I have ever had who has not only taught me how to improve my playing, but he's given me the fundamental blocks that I needed in order to improve my musicianship all around. He has had a great influence on my life, not just my music, and I would recommend him to any student at any level.

I started working with Josh my first year at Anchor Bay High School and I can honestly say he was by far the best drum/percussion instructor I have ever worked with. Josh is easy-going and fun, but still gets you to your goals fast and efficiently. He is great to work with one-on-one and can help you with just about everything. He definitely knows what hes talking about and has the chops to back up anything he says. Josh can also write very good drum parts, better than any music book I have ever found. I have learned a lot over the years and I owe quite a bit of that to this guy right here, every time I talk to him I learn something new. Josh is just a great instructor overall and a very down to earth guy. I would recommend him as an instructor to anyone.

Drum
I had Josh as a Drumline instructor for 3 years. Honestly, there was no one better for the job. He made being on the drumline worth all of the hardwork and dedication because he made it fun and made us sound great. I cannot name a single person who dislikes him. I struggled playing throughout the first year but his patience made it possible for me to stay on the line. I know that if I were seeking for drum lessons, he would hands down be my first choice.
Also I have seen his band play a couple shows and the crowd was absolutely amazed by his drum skills. The rhythms and techniques he uses are groovin'.

I was blessed with an opportunity to take the course "Elements of Music" through the Worship Arts Conservatory. Jerry was the instructor. While I have zero technical knowledge of music I do have a passion for singing but was at a big disadvantage not knowing how to read music. I sing in the choir at our church and also sing on the praise team and his expertise in helping others to understand and successfully dissect written music has helped me acquire the necessary skills to take my passion to the next level. Jerry is a wonderful teacher who truly has an honest passion for music and an equal passion for helping others with their passion for music as well.

I took a Worship Ministries course with Jerry which covered music theory, playing and leading Contemporary Christian Music, and some basic techniques on keyboard, guitar, bass guitar and drums. Jerry is an encourager--he brings out the best in his students and helps them to reach their full potential as a musician. He is knowledgeable, accomplished and patient--an ideal teacher.
