Meredith was very patient and upbeat with my 8 year old daughter who was taking her first violin lessons.
Our daughter has taken piano (and briefly, violin) lessons with Ms. Betz for several years now, starting when she was 4 (she is 8 now). We transferred from another music academy that did not seem to know how to teach young children. We couldn't be more pleased with both the process and the results through Ada Piano Academy. Ms. Betz is very patient and an excellent teacher. She tailors her curriculum to the particular learning styles of her students. Ms. Betz adjusts her teaching as the children mature. With our daughter, for example, Ms. Betz knew just the right time to switch from using little stuffed animals to encourage playing and practice to requiring more self-motivation and responsibility. We are very pleased with the amount of music theory that is included with the lessons, as well as musical education about different genres and musicians. She also allows kids to experiment with different instruments. Ms. Betz is always thinking of fun ways to encourage the kids to practice (like fun holiday practice challenges that can earn a prize), and when they struggle, she thinks of different ways to teach the information they need to learn. She is also always available for questions and offers advice when home practice is a difficult. Ms. Betz offers multiple concerts throughout the year in a very relaxed and non-intimidating atmosphere. She makes the concerts a lot of fun for the kids, including raffles and other entertainment to create an environment where the kids are comfortable and do not get overly nervous about performing (just a healthy dose of butterflies). Ms. Betz is very punctual. Lessons start and end exactly on time. She also allows flexibility in scheduling. Our daughter has developed quite the bond with her, and we are so grateful to have another trusted adult in her life!
I'm a teacher, piano tuner, BA and MM. I offer voice, violin, and guitar instruction services. I have soloed with Saginaw Symphony both in violin and voice. I have directed Church choirs. I am also a music teacher for 15 years and have performed with Chamber Choir of Grand Rapids and Opera Chorus of Grand Rapids.
Denielle is a wonderful music teacher, caring for her students' growth and success. She is committed to each student finding the love for music that she has experienced all her life.
We have been doing beginner guitar and violin lessons for 2 girls for about a year. Joe is extremely patient and kind, and very knowlegeable about stringed instruments! He's also flexible with very busy schedules, which we really appreciate.
My son took various private lessons from Zach over the course of a number of years, and it was always a fantastic experience. My son loved every minute of every lesson of every subject and would be continuing yet today if it were possible. But more than that, Zach has become like a part of our family. Lesson days became major social and visiting times. He is a most amazing young man who puts his whole heart into everything he does, and I highly recommend him.
I have been taking lessons with Natalie for around 8 years. Started learning the violin as an adult with zero music background. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. I highly recommend her I am proud to be a student of hers!
I love music, and I especially love helping others enjoy it too. I teach from beginner to intermediate piano and violin lessons with this goal in mind. Here's a little about my qualifications: I have played the piano for 16 years and have studied with several different piano professors including Deborah Moriarty and Irene Peery-Fox. I have taken violin lessons for 12 years and enjoyed playing with the Symphony Orchestra at Brigham Young University. With five years of experience in teaching piano, I am enthusiastic about passing on my love for music to the students.
I offer student-centric violin lessons to all ages designed to build confidence and inspire. New players will learn to love playing the violin utilizing a fun, no-stress curriculum that will allow them to develop a solid playing foundation. We'll go as fast or as slow as we need to ensure individual progress and improvement. For experienced violin players, we'll improve existing skills through a variety of method books, scales, etudes, and performance repertoire. We'll also work on a few pieces just for fun - pieces that are challenging, explore different music styles and encourage personal growth!
Voice lessons started in May of this year. Overtime I have learned valuable tricks and tips to help me reach notes with ease and precision. I am not perfect but feel like I am well on my way.
I've been playing the violin for 14 years. I graduated with an associate's degree in music education and am now working on my bachelor's. I can teach from age four and up and from beginners to intermediate. I can teach from classical to pop music.
I also work with special needs students. I have an extensive background in performance in a large variety of venues and genres.
