- Teaching since:
- October 2009
Full Time Teacher with openings for homeschooling children.
I specialize in teaching strings to kids & adults age 4 & up. Yes you can start at any age
Lessons should be fun, and you should enjoy it more and more each time you come. That is why I teach not only classical music, but current popular music that is played on the radio. I like to hear the students opinions, and see their reaction when they play songs they can recognize. Sure technique, and and posture is taught, but it is in a fun safe environment. I also teach that it is okay to make a mistake. There is no judgment in my class, and if you need more time or more help then that is what you get.
Exciting news- I am also working on my own book in large print and color coded notes!!!!
I started teaching violin, viola, cello, and double bass in 2009. I taught in many music schools in Georgia including; Gwinnett School of Music, Music and Arts, Jackson’s Music, and the Fine Arts Academy at Douglasville 1st United Methodist Church. During this time I also taught 4 elementary after school programs with Music Matters After School along with a community orchestra with Douglasville 1st United Methodist Church on the weekend for children and adults. I also taught general music at Destiny Christian Academy where I also taught art to preschool and elementary kids. In addition I helped with 2 summer camps, music camp - were I taught the violin class and arts camp, for the Fine Arts Academy with Douglasville 1st United Methodist Church.+ Read More
Head Start is a certification I received while working with in a private school for teaching young children. It was a great certification to help teach and recognize many aspects of a child development.
Very nice instructor. Very helpful, very kind when addressing faults. I have no issues.
Michelle is a great teacher. She taught me to be a better cellist through online FaceTime. She is nice and is an amazing teacher. I am 13 and a beginning cello player. All in all I would recommend Michelle for a cello teacher.
We had our first lesson and really liked Michelle. She is very attentive and personal. My daughter really liked Michelle's teaching style so far. Looking forward to more lessons with Michelle.
It was awesome. My kid had a fun time.
Very nice, very understanding. I had fun.
Very patient and very positive. My daughter is enjoying her lessons... and playing the violin!
I love Teacher Michelle. I will surely be back after my 30day paid session with her. I have learned a lot during those 30 mins 5x a week session we had. She had so much patience. Always with a happy smile on her face never giving up on her students. Thanks Teacher Michelle.+ Read More
She uses a volor coded book for my younge learner. Michelle makes learning violin very fun.
Best violin teacher. Very nice and super funny.
Great cello lessons
I brought my son to her and she was amazing very kind and attentive
She is a good teacher and puts alot of time and effort into her students.
I am one of Michelle’s older students. I have wanted to learn violin since I was a child. Michelle is making it possible. She has tailored a lesson plan to my specific needs and makes learning fun.
My daughter had several wonderful lessons. Michelle helped built her confidence level by being very positive and encouraging! I wasn’t sure how online lessons work (this was our first time) but I was pleasantly surprised on all the tips and advices given by Michelle, anywhere from the way to hold an instrument to how to find a note then playing a piece in sync. Convenience of not driving anywhere and having a lesson at our home is always a plus :)+ Read More
Michelle does a great job with my six year old daughter. My daughter is learning to read music and enjoying herself while doing it.
I played the cello for years as a child and recently started playing again. Michelle has guided me in learning the basics of reading music again and even talks me through all of the super fine details. She has given me the best advice on how to set myself up for success including a great book suggestion! She is laid back and personable. I am so glad I found her.+ Read More

Teacher Michelle is the Best Violin Teacher ever. She does know my child well and she knows the way to get my child's attention. She is very patient and knows everything about the lesson. I am happy to have her as my chosen Violin teacher
Fun class for violin. Had a few teachers but Michelle was by far the best at explaining tuning.
Great lessons qith a great teacher. Fun and full of energy. Shows a real interest in my childs life and they laugh a lot.
Michelle was so patient with my son and very knowledgeable about the viola. We enjoyed her lessons and look forward to many more.
The first 2 lessons my daughter had with Michelle were very good. She is very nice and fun and has an upbeat personality. By the third lesson, Michelle was still spending valuable lesson time reviewing my daughter's situation (name, music, schedule), allowed her own child to repeatedly interrupt, and was inconsistent with her facts (first saying a dotted half note was 3 counts and then saying a dot is worth 1/2 count, so a dotted whole note is worth 4.5 counts). 30 minutes is not a lot of time and I felt like it was wasted.+ Read More
Teacher Michelle has been doing a great job with my 5 year old. She is very patient and smart. She knows how to teach it in a simplified manner for kids at a young age. She does the teaching in a fun way too. Worth having her as my child's first teacher in playing a musical instrument.+ Read More
Fabulous! Really takes the time as a tutor to know the student and adjust to her learning style and level of skill - simply fabulous!
My daughter is five years old and Michelle does a good job relating to her. Michelle is very encouraging. I like the program she uses to help younger children learn how to read music. After my daughter’s lesson today she was so excited that she could read music. The only thing that would be better is if we could have lessons in person. We live in a rural area, so online lessons are sometimes our only option.+ Read More
Very nice thanks.
Michelle is a very great teacher! If you play the cello or the violin and you are looking for a teacher you should definitely choose Michelle.
First lesson with Michelle and as I am not completely new with the violin, the first lesson was very much about assessing where we are and how to go forward. Michelle is a very nice and funny person, full of energy and I am already looking forward to our next lesson.+ Read More
She is a wonderful instructor 👩🏻🏫! I just love our lessons and look forward to them. Yay! Very excited:)
I loved my lesson. Michelle is very energetic and fun i loved her approach when she explained important things but took things slowly at the same time. Great lesson really enjoyed it and look forward to future lessons.
I feel like Michelle knows how to explain things and is easy to talk to. My right hand position is improving and the various exercises and stretches help.
Attempted to establish lessons with this instructor. Drove from Greensboro to Reidsville 3 different times. First time no one answered at residence. Second time received call on the way advising could not meet for lesson and final time, no one at location. I can’t believe she was nervy enough to request a review. We finally found an instructor in Greensboro. Was a very frustrating encounter with an unprofessional tutor.+ Read More
I’m having a great time. Michelle is very helpful and has a awesome teaching style.
Michelle is very kind and patient, my daughter enjoyed the lesson very much and I know she'll learn a lot!
Thank you so much for the fun first lesson!
Great 1st lesson! Michelle is very easy to work with and great with young beginners. We are looking forward to lesson 2.
This was our first lesson. Michelle was very friendly and helpful. We got off to a great start. Michelle gave me some homework and things to work on until we meet again next week.
Great person very professional and creative always finding ways of capturing a student's full potential highly recommend
Michelle is highly creative and artistic. Her educational techniques are sure to keep things enjoyable. She’s a great Mother and a natural with kids, patient, focused and fun. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing lessons at any age, very easy to get along with.+ Read More
I have know Michelle several years. She had a great music school in Georgia. Her students were sad to see her go when she moved to NC. With her teaching on line now everyone can start their lessons again. She is a great teacher who has patience with children of all ages. Looking forward to being able to take adult classes. I am so happy that she will be available on line giving lessons. I am so excited!+ Read More
Having never personally met Michelle face to face, our online experience was more than expected. Our 7 children all benefited from having Michelle as our personal music coach. She was always available by phone and Skype if needed. My children learned to read music and to play by ear thanks to Michelle’s techniques. I would gladly recommend her for any family big or small.+ Read More
She was an awesome violin teacher for my 2 kids. She was extremely patient and creative with my younger son and helped my older son excel very quickly. I highly recommend her.
My wife and I decided to enroll both of our kids in music lessons, and after careful consideration we felt Ms.Teague would be a perfect fit. Her ability to retain our 6 year olds attention was astonishing, and method of teaching proved to be exemplary. I would recommend Ms.Teague for any age, and or group.+ Read More
Michelle is awsome. She helps when you need help and has a extraordinary personality
