Featured Southgate Piano Teachers

Nicholas C

Instruments:

Nicholas has been a musician in some form or another for as long as he can remember. His musical journey started when he was only six, with a delve into the realm of classical piano. While there he studied under world class child prodigy Josh Cullen. The composers that he studied include Bach, Beethoven, Barton, Hayden and many others. From there he progressed to playing jazz trumpet, studying the Jamey Aebersold method under Paul Finkbeiner, the lead trumpet player for the Paul Keller Ensemble Then at the age of 11, with the help of his grandfather he discovered the guitar. He learned quickly on his old SR guitar. He quickly discovered that he had a natural taste for blues phrasing, and his soloing abilities quickly blossomed. 2 years later, he had formed his first band, Spherical. It was through this band that he found the bass. His journey into the realm of bass, began out of necessity and progressed into love of the bottom end. Since then, he has been collecting basses, playing, living and breathing bass. He now realizes the importance of a funky beat, a subtle line and most important of all A TIGHT GROOVE!!!After a year in Chicago, where he was enrolled as a student in the Columbia College school of Music as a jazz studies student, he dropped out and returned to Detroit to pursue a career as a fulltime musician and teacher. His current musical endeavors include work with; Remedy and The Wall Clocks. During his time as a performer he has shared the stage with groups such as; Tesla, Candlebox, Bret Michaels, The Sick Puppies, 3 Doors Down and many others.

I am a recent Albion College graduate in music education looking to teach young musicians and make music. I am also a music advocate, and participate in research regarding music literacy. I have been playing piano since an early age, focusing on classical and big band jazz. I played alto sax in marching band, symphonic band, and jazz band in HS, and continued marching band and symphonic in High School. Voice was my primary instrument of study during college, and I sing opera, and art song with a special love for Lieder. I currently teach 5th grade flute for the band program where I did my student teaching.

Stephanie R

Instruments:

I'e been playing since I've been a young child and have never been able to see myself do anything else. I am currently playing with the Dearborn Symphony Orchestra as well as the Michigan Philharmonic Symphony. I aspire to play with the Michigan Opera Theater soon and become a studio musician. I have lots of background playing in concerts outside of classical music such as rock, folk, and pop and love teaching such styles. Music is not only an important tool to develop our brains but also a door to open our hearts to the beauty of the simplicity of life.

More Information About Piano Lessons

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
