I recently started taking guitar lessons with Josh and it's been a great experience. He is flexible with both your learning style and schedule. In the past I have had difficulty finding a good teacher, but I would recommend Josh to anyone, and he's inspired me to start piano as well. Thanks!

I loved the musical teacher she was such a sweetheart it was amazing. Although I would say that it's kinda pricey for singing lessons but oh well that's what happens when you decide to take them.

I recently signed up for guitar lessons with Robert Gallagher. My goal is to read music and to play my favorite songs. After 3 weeks, I have already learned one of them! He is very encouraging, passionate, and cares about his students. I highly recommend Robert to anyone looking for guitar lessons. He is a wonderful teacher and a great guitarist. Hands down, the best guitar instructor in Michigan. Worth every penny!

I started taking guitar lessons with John and have been extremely satisfied with his services thus far. He teaches in such a way that is allowing me to quickly progress. Only comments for 4 stars is that the studio is currently based out of his house and could be a little cleaner, and for my first lesson he greeted me at the door with bare feet... just made for a slightly odd first impression. I am very impressed with his services and continue to go to him for lessons... he wears slippers or shoes now...

My 5 year old started piano lessons with Tom a few months ago and I'm very pleased with her progress and his patience! He's accommodating to our schedule and a great teacher. He explains things well in a way she understands and did I mention he is patient?!?!? I'd definitely recommend him as a piano teacher, and we're hoping in a few years, my daughter will learn how to play the guitar with him too.

Miss Amber is very professional, very nice and very patient. She started to teach my daughter two years ago. My daughter has won one regional champion trophy. But most important, Miss Amber knows how to spark and keep my daughter's interest of learning piano always high!

I've had a wonderful experience starting my guitar journey with Joe this past year and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone interested in learning to play the guitar. He not only teaches the practical aspects of guitar playing but also focuses on music theory, with the intent of making you a well-rounded musician. Joe is also willing to tie the lessons in with your own musical tastes by letting you work on songs of your own choosing, which makes practicing fun and engaging. Joe's love of guitar shines through in every lesson and his cheerful demeanor and encouraging words will make you love it too!

My husband had been wanting to take lessons and we tried a few teachers until we chanced on Mike. Mike responded to our initial email immediately and we started our lessons. We are now a few months in, and have a long term relationship. He is punctual as well as flexible, something that makes him invaluable. My husband has progressed at a great pace and he loves the instruction he gets from Mike. We look forward to years of learning with Mike

Devin Davis Music

Devin is not only a great sound engineer, but a cool guy to record with. He makes the whole process super easy for the musician. He is very professional with setting up mics and he knows how to get the best sound, whether it be with guitars, drums or vocals. The other thing about Devin is that because he plays the instruments, and he's a singer, and he's been in many bands, etc., he's very knowledgable about music, arranging it and adding certain instrumentations and ideas to the music that I never even thought of as the songwriter! It has been a pleasure to see Devin grow, not only as a sound engineer, but also as a musician. I highly recommend Devin Davis Music for all your recording needs.

We offer very affordable private lessons from a senior of the Fraser Performing Arts Career Academy. We are specializing in voice, piano, music theory, and sight reading techniques. We charge $10 for half hour and $15 for full hour.


I provide home-study music instruction. Learn to play piano and guitar. I also provide vocal and demo production for songwriters and starting artists. I have 40 years of experience in performing, songwriting and live performances as well as full-service recording.


I, and my associates are all professional musicians, performers and artists of various talents. Personally, I have toured the U.S., Canada and Bermuda, performed on Cruise Ships and been offered contracts to perform on Broadway and record for Geffen records. I also hold a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and taught music in a local private elementary school. I have performed with several famous artists, and I know the value of learning how to do things properly from the beginning, before developing habits that will slow you down in the future.

Firstly, I am incredibly good at sight reading - it is a stereotype that guitarist are poor readers of music! I am also deeply interested and knowledgeable in many kinds of music. I like exploring the connections between genres - like jazz, rock, and classical - in my playing and in my compositions. I offer that openness to all my students, and often burn CDs for them to expose them to new kinds of music.


Ken began playing the guitar about 25 years ago. He has found himself in just about every musical situation conceivable. He maintains a busy schedule of teaching, recording and live dates. He performs and composes with his jazz/fusion trio, Slice of Pi, which is currently recording a follow-up to their debut CD. He also performs with rock group Merge. Over the years, Ken has performed with a wide range of artists and bands. He has also been involved in studio recording projects and commercial music and has written guitar method books, addressing improvisation and theory for the guitar. Ken frequently hosts clinics, demonstrating technique and theory. He studied jazz and classical guitar at Wayne State University and theory and composition at Oakland University. Ken studied under acclaimed guitar legends Joe Fava and Paul Abler. Currently, Ken teaches theory and guitar instruction privately. Some of his many influences include jazz, fusion, rock, funk, classical, progressive, and world music. Several notable musicians were key in Ken's development such as John Coltrane, J.S. Bach, Shawn Lane, Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, and Miles Davis. Ken is a reputable guitar instructor, college educated, and professional musician. He has made teaching and performing music not only as a passion, but also as a career.
