About Barbara
An experienced piano & voice teacher who has taught hundreds of students in the Lansing/East Lansing area . Ages range from five to adult. I've coached voice students for auditions in school/community musicals. I've coached piano students for music performances in recitals and solo & ensemble festivals. I am also a Registered Music Therapist who has taught simplified piano lessons to students with special cognitive and physical needs. I have taught in students' homes, in my own home and at music stores. I received both a bachelor's and master's degree in music from Michigan State Universi
ty. I am caring, loving and motivating toward my students. I communicate well with people at all levels. I modify music teaching methods to meet each student's level of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I expect my students to practice daily, bring completed homework assignments in music theory to each lesson, listen carefully and attentively to my instructions, try new techniques, ask questions, and be consistent in attending their lessons each week. I use the Alfred piano methods for children, older learners and adults, along with the Schaum Keynote Speller (Primer and Level One) for beginning piano students. If students are interested in branching off into classical music repertoire, I concentrate on musical selections that they choose from various classical composers. If they are interested in more easy-going, popular music/broadway musical selections, then we concentrate on selections that they choose.
For voice students, I use the Estelle Liebling Vocal Course for vocal technique skills; and I allow them to choose songs that they are interested in learning, whether it be popular music, broadway songs, church music, or more formal styles of music. After 3-6 months, the piano students will have learned all the basic skills in reading music, developed finger coordination and sight-reading skills, and advance to a higher level of piano performance. Voice students will have learned all the vocal techniques, breathing techniques, relaxation techniques, music theory related to reading music, expressive music techniques, and performance techniques.

About Cassidy
As a professional violinist graduated from the University of Michigan, I am dedicated to making music of all forms come to life—and to sharing my passion for music, art, and the world around with as many people as possible. Having earned BMs in both Violin Performance and Music History, I believe that a holistic approach to playing the violin is crucial, and I am passionate about teaching individuals of all ages the craft of the violin while exploring the theory and history that make our art so captivating.

My own musical interests center around new music (classical works being written toda
y) and music from the Renaissance and late Medieval time periods; the fields are more similar than one might think! I currently perform with a specialized new-music quartet and several other ensembles, working extensively with contemporary student composers and aiming to share their work throughout the Ann Arbor community.

Cassidy Goldblatt is a very bright and enthusiastic teacher who offers tremendous insight into creatively effective ways of playing the violin. When I recently performed in front of her as practice for my jury, I found that her most stressed advice (for me) was to focus on elements concerning the mind, and opening up the body: things that I never considered speculating into in my past ten years of playing violin. Her specific advice turned out to be extremely helpful when playing under high stress, and I not only regret not finding her sooner, but I once again commend Cassidy on her imaginative insight and never-ending ideas on technique and musicality. Cassidy's constantly supportive and graceful demeanor were key to creating a meaningful collaboration in our time together, and would only help but inspire passion for music in her future students.
