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.

Very professional and pleasant, but behind in technology

We feel like Karen is a wonderful person, pleasant, and very nice. However, she is rather old fashioned in her teaching, which is fine for some, just not us! Her technology is behind, so learning newer music and practice for newer shows, etc, is very difficult. If we were learning to read music and play the piano, Karen would be great, I am sure.

Very good

Too soon to evaluate as I have had a limited number of lessons.
Everything is going well, however, I do have to drive quite a distance to get there, which is a negative.

This has been a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

Karen is GREAT! She keeps my daughter focused and she is getting better with every lesson. My daughter has a a habit of playing to fast and Karen does not scold her for this but she gives her positive feedback and tells her how she is getting better and it has made a big difference.

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 ...

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.
