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!!!!

Every lesson I've had has taught me so much. I came into this as a beginner, and after each lesson i have learned a lot, but not to much information for me to be overwhelmed. I highly recommend lessons with Michelle.

Michelle is a very calm and patient instructor. She is more interested in completing the lesson then ending precisely on the dot. I enjoy her humor and bubbly personality. Her lessons are fun!

Michelle is a very encouraging and supportive cello teacher. My daughter loves her sessions with her, where she gets to work on technique while still creating music she loves. Michelle is patient and a good listener with definite expertise. My daughter was most impressed with now being able to tune her on her own!

Michelle is an excellent teacher, and can accommodate any student.
Michelle gives clear instructions, and is patient with her students when they don't understand something.
She helped me by improving individual music pieces, as well as solidifying great technique.
I completely recommend Michelle to all students.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
