Teaching since:
July 2011

Hello, my name is Michael. I began giving private lessons age 17, while still in high school, only offering voice at the time. Within another two years I added piano and music theory to the fold. I started this to help those wanting all the musical knowledge that one could gain, or those just looking to better their skill. My private tutoring and instructing lessons started here in Detroit, and has taken me as far as Las Vegas, NV. I am currently teaching for the Institute of Music and Dance (IMD), affiliated with Marygrove College. My goal remains to provide an excellent musical experience to various students at the most affordable rates and help with the individual goals of my students.

I now have the honor of being a part of the Marygrove College faculty. I am an adjunct teacher for beginning piano class (Ages 4-8, 8-young teen, adult), beginning adult voice class, and private lessons (children and adult voice and piano) with IMD, which is connected to Marygrove College. I am loving this experience so much and hope to soon come on board with a possible full time role!

The lessons are always fun and I really appreciate the feedback he gives me, every session I am always eager to learn new techniques; he helps quickly when I am making a sub conscious mistake. He’s a fun teacher to have!

Piano lessons are a "bucket list" item for me and Michael is helping my dream come to fruition. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he is also patient and though I've had several teachers in the past. Michael is the first teacher to explain to me why, how and what. I am truly enjoying the experience and I know that this time I will play. What more can I expect?

I started taking lessons from Michael about two years ago and I knew hardly anything about playing piano. I knew a few children's songs just by messing around on the instrument, but nothing further. Michael taught me how to apply music theory to piano so that I know what's going on musically, and know how to play what's going on musically. He's great if you ask me. He's very knowledgeable, yet admits that he himself is still learning and growing.
