Awesome Teacher, Very Professional, Super Knowledgeable

I was lucky to have Scott as my first guitar teacher. He took me from a beginner to an advanced guitarist. He is very knowledgeable and makes playing guitar fun, but also challenging. So, if you are serious about becoming a guitarist and or musician Scott is your instructor.
Rich L. Novi, MI

About Rich

Music has always been my biggest passion. I started playing guitar at the age of 10, and I haven't been able to put it down since. In grade school I started my first gigs playing in bands and spent all of my time outside of school playing guitar. Coming from a family of eight where there wasn't much money for schooling, I put myself through high school and college gigging, and teaching. I earned a music degree from Wayne State University in performance guitar, studying under the likes of Joe Fava and Charles Postlewate. At the same time playing extensive clubwork, shows, concerts, studio work and teaching. My styles include virtually all elements of guitar. Rock, Blues, Metal, Country, Classical and Jazz.

Marc M. Livonia, MI

About Marc

I teach all styles of guitar, as I have been in many different types of music situations: Soloist (Classical) Ensemble (Classical and Jazz) Lead and Rhythm (Various Rock and Roll bands) Songwriting and Recording. I am a people person that learned the guitar from many different sources. Most of my learning came from watching others and communicating with others. I like to learn about the people I am teaching so that I can better understand their needs as a musician. My education came as a practical necessity in order to get better as a teacher and performer, as well as make a living doing it. But, by no means do I preach the need to be "educated" but only to be a working, practical musician. I will surely go over the need to read music once the need becomes evident, enlighten you as to ...

Marc is very patient. There were times I didn't have time to practice between lessons and he was still able to find something we could work on during our lesson that would help me. He gave me great insight on what/how to practice and incorporate what I learned to help my progress, even on my tight schedule.

Marc is wonderful with my enthusiastic 8 year old son. From our first contact with him, he freely gave advice for beginners as we looked for an instrument and continued to help us with everything we needed to know. He was always encouraging and inclusive with the planned jam sessions. The lessons were the perfect balance of a fun hang-out vibe and focus on technique... and a little gum bribe :)... whatever works! We were very lucky to find such a great teacher.

I am beginner at playing the piano, and Nic is an awesome teacher because he's patient and any improvement - no matter how big or how small - Nic recognizes and compliments the achievement. He really breaks things down so it's not overwhelming for a beginner, and he allows me to learn at my own pace but he does challenge me to learn. I've learned to know which keys are which, how to place my fingers on the keys and how to relax and play with both hands. I highly recommend Nic as a piano teacher.

Nic can relate to the child's ability level and instructs them as such. He is very reasonably priced; flexible which is immensely helpful if I have to chance a lesson; and comes to the house - another bonus.
I recommend him.
