Heather P.

Utica, MI

About Heather

I love teaching, simply love teaching! I teach students of all ages. I teach piano, voice, clarinet, and saxophone. I have taught for over 25 years. My students have lots of opportunities for performance, if they choose to. We perform at Nursing Homes, Retirements, Festival of Trees, and Seasonal Recitals. There are at least 2 recitals a year, 1 at Christmas and 1 in the Spring, if enough participation, we often have one in summer with a party afterward. We also participate in the Michigan Music Association competition. I have also had students perform in Disney World in Florida!!! I
have been in many musicals such as Annie, Gypsy, Rock Around the Clock. I have put on solo recitals. I am a member of my church choir. My students and I have fun while we are learning music! It is the best job ever.

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a variety of curriculum, which includes classical, broadway, some pop, new age, and jazz. After 3 to 6 months you will have a basic understanding of your instrument and will be ready to take off! I do ask students to keep track of your practicing so you can see your progress.

For piano:
I use the Alfred Basic Books for beginners and then we move to the Keith Snell books along with other supplemental books. If a student already is using a book, generally we will finish that book up so they won't have to purchase another set of books.

For Saxophone and Clarinet:
I use the Rubank books along with other supplemental books

For Voice:
I use the 24 Italian Songs and Arias, The Young Singer, and various Broadway books. Any pop music must be purchased by student as there is just way too much to chose from for me to have a lot of it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: in living room with 2 pianos at entrance of house. Seating is available as well toys and a table for siblings.

*** Specialties ***
Voice - Classical & Broadway
Piano - classical
Clarinet - classical and pop
Saxophone - classical, pop, and some jazz

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 ta
ught, 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 lot to do, so we need to be efficient and not waste time. My teaching method is a combination of the best methods I have found. It is backed up with the same solid principles that I received when I was a student myself. If you choose to continue and pursue a classical education at a high level, you will be well-prepared.

In-Home:
If you are taking any kind of music lesson,
we recommend a tuned piano or digital keyboard.
If you like, I can suggest several different models of keyboard that I have researched and of which I approve.

*** Specialties ***
I teach people of all ages
first to play by ear and to have fun while they study.
Then I back up ear training with solid theory so they can read and write music.
In school I studied many traditional methods and
I have distilled my own distinct method from them. Though I am classically trained, I specialize in improvisation.

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 materi
als 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
- Love. I love each student and teach through my love
- accept where your child is, but challenge them to be better
- constant review and repetition of materials is essential to learning
- compete only with yourself, not your peers or parents
- character is developed as the child gains knowledge and ability

When learning music, your child is taught true self-confidence. They know they truly have achieved a great thing when they learn to play an instrument. The things they learn, such as patience and perseverance, will pour over into all areas of their lives

*** Studio Equipment ***
Young students are started out on a play violin so they can learn the proper positions before they graduate to their real violin. I will assist parents in finding the right instrument for their child.

*** Specialties ***
I have never found a child who couldn't learn music. Obviously, some will learn faster than others, but with the right encouragement and help from their parents, any child can learn to play the violin.

My daughter began lessons with Charlene last summer. When I first started searching for teachers, I was told that she was too old to learn the violin. Charlene has proved that is not the case and I am amazed at the progress my daughter has made for never having played an instrument before. Charlene's dedication to her students, along for her love of music, is evident in her teaching. We are both so happy we found her.

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.

My daughter has been taking lessons from Nancy for about 5 months. I have been extremely pleased with how much my daughter has learned and how she is continuing to improve. Nancy is patient but continues to challenge her each week. Nancy also organized a recital for all of her students with a reception afterward. Each student was introduced and had the chance to play several pieces. Everything was professionally done and a nice way for the kids to showcase what they have been learning. I would definitely recommend Nancy as a piano teacher.

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.
