If you are looking for a fun summer activity for yourself or your children, this is the place! I am certified by the State of Michigan to teach K-12 music. I also have 30 years experience as a performer and private music instructor.
PIANO: My methods vary according to student goals: reading music, improvising, playing charts, secular, sacred and pop. I've got the resources!!
VOICE: A long time choral and solo singer, accompanist. and director: I'm ready to coach for all genres.
GUITAR: I've played for years off and on, and mainly teach beginners both folk and classical.
WOODWINDS: a clarinet and saxophone player, I am familiar teaching advanced students. Other woodwinds, I easily handle beginners.
BRASS: not an accomplished player, I do know basics to teach beginners.
STRINGS: I focus on ear training, music theory, musicality, and foundational technique here.
I'm still putting together my private music student schedule for the summer. Students typically have 6-8 lessons during the summer months. I will work around our vacation schedules. I always schedule siblings back to back. Because they take a larger time slot, I will place them first. Next, I configure hour-long students. Then, I work half-hour students around that.
Since this is basically my summer job, I like to have at least 35 students, because that usually means around 23 on any given week. This is what I can service around my summer concert schedule with Sam's Swing and Calder City Concert Band. I currently have five sibling groups, five hour-long students, and 17 half hour students. Available Lessons are M-Th 10am - 5pm.
