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.

Ellen P

Instruments:

I have always had an eclectic love for all things music, and enthusiastically share it with anyone who will have me!   There was a piano in my house growing up and I couldn't stay away.  In school, I studied oboe and bassoon.  Eventually I just explored any instrument that caught my interest- guitar, trumpet, ocarinas, panflutes, etc.  I spent a lot of time doing musical theatre, and studied voice for a time as well. Performing was fun, but I found that teaching others is by far the most rewarding.  Playing music is the most relaxing, invigorating, inspiring, and stress-relieving activity I have ever known, and I believe everyone should have that in their life.  My sheet music library boasts classical music, blues, jazz, ragtime, broadway showtunes, pop, rock, TV, movie, video game soundtracks, and more!

David R

Instruments:

I'm a lifelong musician, and have been playing piano for 25 years and violin, guitar, and double bass for over 15 years. I taught K-12 band, orchestra, choir, and general music. I was a guitar songleader a camp for 7 summers. I played in orchestras and jazz bands through high school and college. I also play cocktail piano and campfire guitar for weddings and events. 

Denielle B

Instruments:

I am an enthusiastic and passionate person and it my goal to pass this love of music on to my students! I graduated from Bowling Green State Univeristy in OH, where I studied advanced repertoire and technique on the violin, organ and piano.  I have over 10 years of experience as both a private music instructor and performer and I have found that teaching is where my true passion lies!  I currently perform with the Dearborn and Adrian Symphonies, as well as Michigan Philharmonic out of Plymouth, MI. I have studied the piano since I was 5, Violin since age 12, and organ since 15 and I can honestly say I love each of these instruments equally :-)

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out by learning to play on a keyboard or digital piano. The most reputable keyboards brands are Yamaha, Roland and Casio, and can be purchased from most good music instrument retailers. Students should look to buy a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, as this will most resemble the playability of a real piano. At a minimum, 61 keys will suffice for most songs and practice. Keyboards are portable and can be played with headphones, making them highly convenient for practice. That said, if it is within you means to buy an acoustic piano, it will provide the best learning experience.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. To get started, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. As their dexterity, co-ordination and speed progresses, they can start broadening their musical horizons. They can learn new chords, playing and performance techniques and styles, such as legato, staccato, glissando, runs, fills, as well as work on their sight reading and general theory (time signatures, modes, modulation...). Advanced players often want to study a particular genre of composer, or work on certain aspects of their playing and repertoire. This may include improvisation, or exploring different genres or styles, such as Avant Garde, Jazz or Classical piano.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
