Elizabeth B. Grand Rapids, MI

As a dancer for 15 years, I had the opportunity to teach, choreograph and perform in over 100 pieces and performances. Lately I have been doing much more choreography and teaching in the musical theater realm. Being well versed in tap is beneficial in many musical theater productions both classic and modern.

About Elizabeth

I am an up-and-coming classically trained singer living in Grand Rapids, MI with a passion for teaching. My goal is to help my students become good musician while spreading to them the joy and love of music. I have a Bachelor of Music from Grand Valley State University in Vocal Performance and a Master of Music from the Chicago College of Performing Arts in Voice Performance. From humble beginnings, I have maintained a busy studio since 2011. Since then, I have helped dozens of students excel and grow as singers several of whom have gone on to study music in college. ~What can you expect in our lessons?~ I strive to help my students become independent musicians as well as more confident singers. We work diligently to create healthy, well supported sounds. Whether we are working on ...

I have learned a lot and have had a lot of fun studying with Elizabeth. She is kind, knowledgable and helpful. I really wanted to work on reading music because it had been a long time since I've sung. She was very patient with me! She always makes our lessons fun but challenges me to always do my best. After working with her for a few months I felt more confident and tried out for a solo with my choir, which I got! I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who wants to work on reading music and learning how to sing better. She's the best.

I have been taking lessons with Elizabeth for the last 6 months and I couldn't be happier. Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about singing and teaching. Elizabeth designs classes around my strengths and weakness in order to help me to become the best singer I can be. Although she critiques the things I do incorrectly, she also praises me for what I do correctly. When she critiques my singing, she pairs it with singing exercises and warm ups to correct what I'm doing wrong. My singing has improved so much and I have become so confident in my singing that members of my church choir have complimented me. Also, I am buying several lessons with Elizabeth for my mom as a Christmas present. I have learned so much from Elizabeth and I look forward to continuing my classes. Thank you, Elizabeth for being an amazing teacher!

Locally I attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where I trained under professors Wayne St. David and Shawn-Lamere Williams of Eleone Dance Theatre.

I started teaching and booked my first professional gig fifteen years ago and have been performing and sharing my experience with my students ever since. As a teacher I am passionate about proper technique and increasing the personal character of my students, but also about making class a fun,positive experience! I truly love what I do!

About Ferlyn

My Teaching Philosophy: "Everyone is capable of dancing, playing an instrument, and understanding music & art performance; it is the desire, drive, determination, dedication and discipline instilled within a person and the guidance of the Method that will bring these abilities to light." - Ferlyn I believe each and every person has a unique brand of movement, understanding of music, and learning style for any dance form or instrument. Whether it is hip hop, breaking, ballet, jazz, tap, ballroom, dancing for a wedding, birthday, or flash mob, playing the piano, singing or even learning the theory of music or dance, I make sure to bring out the best quality within your learning, expand that knowledge and encourage you to become your fullest potential as my student.

My 9 year old son has taken piano lessons with Ferlyn since September and she has been absolutely fantastic! He has gotten so much better since that time. Ferlyn is very good about rewarding and stern (not mean) when she needs to be. She has lots of patience. I've never seen her get frustrated or irritated with my son, which says a lot. Most of all my son really likes her!!!!

We are blessed to have two really great music teachers. Don't hesitate to signup for any of her lessons!

I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they had to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!

About Debbie

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that style and help the student grow. I have experience working with mild autism and have multiple references if interested.

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!

Amy is the perfect teacher! She encourages and infuses her students with a feeling of success that makes you want to do more and continue to improve.
I had been having difficulty with vocal confidence and Amy helped me with that immediately. From the first session, I learned things about my approach to singing that I could correct and put to use at the very next opportunity. I have now have a voice because of Amy!
She is a fantastic Teacher and I highly recommend her to students of all ages!

I have enjoyed my lessons with Ashley because:

1. Pace of instruction is perfect for my level (beginner) and available practice time (limited).
2. Ashley isn't simply teaching me how to play a song; rather she is improving my technique in this critical period where bad habits can still be changed.
3. Always on time (granted instruction is at her location but none the less this is appreciated).
