About Glenda J.

After studying at Cass Tech High School and Wayne State University in MI, I have enjoyed teaching privately, in groups, and at churches, I have performed vocally and instrumentally throughout the US and in 8 foreign countries, and taught at public, charter, and private schools. It is important to tailor each lesson to a student's individual needs and ability to ensure that their experience is as rewarding as possible!

VERY helpful first lesson. Almost immediately, Glenda was able to listen to my playing and make useful suggestions for improvement. It was a very good lesson. I look forward to learning even more under her skillful tutelage. A GREAT choice for anyone looking to master the Hammond organ.

Definitely keeps the kids engaged and is quick to suggest a different activity to help adjust something else, for instance my daughter s having trouble keeping the bow straight in her movements and Glenda was quick to think of a few different ways to help
