Twenty eight years of experience working with students of all levels and ages has shaped me into the teacher I am today. Although I do tailor my sessions to suit the individual student, here are some expectations you can have of me.
Beginning students up to age 11 typically begin with the Bastien method. This curriculum is great at introducing interval recognition. I supplement this with fun pieces from Alfred, where students can strengthen sight reading skills. Flashcards are also used as reinforcement.
Older kids and adults will begin with Alfred's adult course and progress quickly into independent playing.

For all ages - After the student has reached a level of more independent playing, the student/parent will help select the direction in which we progress. Classical music, composition, and popular music are just a few of the possibilities!

All lesson books and materials are provided by me and are included in the cost of lessons. Students are welcome to provide additional pieces of interest that we can incorporate into our lessons.

About Jennifer G.

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since 1992, both to individual students and groups. I taught with the Music Learning Center of Michigan. I have been a music teacher and choir director for a number of years as well. For eight years I have played the organ and piano for Church worship.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be appreciated and enjoyed. Lessons should be fun without sacrificing quality. This is the approach I offer to students. I focus on teaching independence through music theory and sight reading. Performance is an important part of learning so I provide two recitals every year- one for Christmas and another in the spring, at the end of the school year.
My schedule only allows for weekly lessons. Requests for every other week cannot be accepted.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate room dedicated to teaching with baby grand piano.

She is the absolute best piano teacher! My son loves her and refusing to use anyone else. She make everyone comfortable. Its clear that she's very talented and my son is learning quickly. I love the amazing recitals that she sets up. It makes the kids feel good about themselves like they should. Thank you.

Jennifer seems like such a wonderful teacher. My 9 year old son has had only one lesson so far but he was very happy! He is practicing every day! She gave him lots of encouragement. She also provided him with lots of materials - books, flashcards and a notebook. She seemed very kind.

Was nervous about my first lesson, never played piano before but Jennifer explained about the piano, notes and how to start reading music and my nerves subsided. Didn't think I'd be playing easy, short pieces in my first lesson! Looking forward to my next lesson.

Jennifer is a knowledgeable piano teacher. English is not my native language but the way she explains the music theory is very easy for me to understand. I'm very lucky to have her as my teacher.

Great piano teacher! She has been great for my shy little 7/8 year old (we've been with Jennifer for ~1 year now). I love that she is patient with my daughter! She is always positive and encouraging. My daughter has come a long ways! She just played beautifully at their Christmas recital!

I also appreciate that Jennifer is conscious of the distractions of a young child. She has a piano in a separate room with doors. If there is too much noise outside of the room, or outdoors, she will turn on a 'white noise' maker to help cancel out the distractions and keep her students focused!

Overall, it has been a great experience so far! No complaints! Yes, I'd recommend her!

Jennifer is a great piano teacher.
She could influence very young kids easily and get them interested in learning from her. Both my 7 years old son and my 3 years old daughter are fighting for the piano seat when she's teaching my son.

It was everything a first experience should be. The instructor got right to work and started at basics. She didn't skip a moment and kept my daughter occupied the entire time. My 4 year old was overjoyed and felt like she was "all that" the rest of the day!

Ms.Jennifer is the most fantastical teacher ever, but really, she is. My sister and I (Grace) have been taking lesson for 6 years now and we've really enjoyed her the whole time. She works around our crazy (and I mean CRAZY) schedule, multiple times. Taking piano lessons from her has been a really fun experience and I'll keep doing it as l can. Now I'm in 6th grade and can read treble and bass clef and can play much more than I thought I would be able to when I first started.
Now to outdo Grace, Ms. Jennifer is sooo cool and the bestest (not a real word)teacher in the whole universe and has like superwoman powers on the piano. I totes(once again not a real word, that's just how good she is) recommend her.

Mrs. Jennifer has been the greatest most awesome teacher I have ever had. I started lessons when I was 9, and in 6 short years I've become a musician. I feel like I can read/play any piece of music (although I can't...at least not yet). I've learned so much by taking lessons with her. When I started, I barely knew how to read treble clef! Now, this year as a high school freshman, I was able to be in the marching band as a synthesizer player. I can't put into words how much she means to me! Not only is Mrs. Jennifer an amazing person, but she is an amazing teacher as well. I have so much fun at all of our (my sister and I) lessons and I'm dreading college, just because I can't have lessons every week with her. I couldn't have asked for a better role model, and I definitely recommend her as a piano teacher. (As long as she still has time to teach me)

My daughters are 10 years old and have been taking piano lessons from Mrs. Jennifer for about three years. They love her! She's kind and incredibly patient.

Because I wanted my daughters' love of piano to develop naturally -on their own time, I wouldn't force them to practice. Now, starting their fourth year of lessons, my daughters enjoy learning, playing, writing music, and they look forward to the recitals. I have very much appreciated Jennifer's patience and understanding of this process. She has helped shape a love of piano that will stay with my daughters forever.

Jennifer is a great teacher! I like how well Jennifer works with my daughter and she has helped my daughter grow so much in her piano playing over the years that I would never want to go with another teacher. Jennifer has been so kind and understanding throughout our 5 years with her and my daughter looks forward to more lessons to come!

My daughter wanted to learn to play the piano. She loves it even more than she thought she would thanks to Mrs. Jennifer. She is always welcoming and professional. Mrs. Jennifer is amazing with helping parents if a schedule change is needed. I can't thank her enough for helping develope the love of music in my daughter. Thank you Mrs. Jennifer for instilling the love and respect of music lessons and values in my daughter. I know they will forever impact her life in the most the positive ways!!!!

Piano is fun!

Jennifer is very nice and encouraging. I like the method of reading music by intervals (versus memorizing the notes). I have had ~6 lessons and have enjoyed them all.

Jennifer is EXCELLENT!

My experience with Jennifer has been absolutely wonderful. I decided to put my daughter in piano, because she admires Alicia Keys and wanted to play like her. Jennifer is caring, and knows how to teach with patience. My daughter LOVES her.

Great teaching skills!

My 8 & 5 year old daughters started piano with Jennifer for the very first time. I'm surprised how just merely over two months and both have progressed very well. They love going to piano lessons and no complains especially from my 5 year old. My girls are always excited when they get home to share and show me what they have learnt. Thank you Jennifer! :)

Jennifer is an EXCELLENT teacher. Rather than just having me play the pieces, she TEACHES me the theory and helps me understand why it's important in the particular piece of music. She is always flexible to work with my personal learning style and to comply with my requests.
