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!

About

I am Nevin Haines and I teach people how to play the guitar -- plain and simple. I am a musician, songwriter, and performer. I play guitar (acoustic and electric), bass, piano, drums, ukulele, and harmonica. I have been playing around a decade and am happy to share my knowledge, techniques, and skills with students. The guitar is something I love to play and is a very amazing way of art. I teach everything from the basics to professional level playing. Everything including chords, measures and timing, tunings, scales, and even songwriting for those who really want to get involved.

About

I've been playing guitar for 14 years, and although I may not be a master, I would love to teach beginners enough to get them on their feet.

About

My name is Zach, and I love to teach. I look back at my first guitar teacher and think about how he changed my life very drastically with musical knowledge, and that is what I want to do. I aim to help people shape their musical futures. I have been in several blues bands throughout the last three years, and have taken lessons for two years myself. I have also studied a bit of jazz and spent some time one on one with a few of Western Michigan University's instructors learning. I can help almost all guitarists improve and learn; from beginners through experts. I also teach slide guitar. Lessons are only 15$ for half an hour, and scheduling is flexible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

About

Justin's Guitar and Trumpet Lessons can teach trumpet or guitar lessons to any student of any age at an extremely affordable price.

About

I am a musician who is currently studying at Western Michigan University. I have ten years of experience as both an oboist and a guitarist and about five years as a vocalist. My specialty is teaching not only guitar, but also the underlying theory behind playing guitar, which allows my students to apply their skills elsewhere, such as in piano or instruments found in the band and orchestra. I mostly work with beginners, although I am willing to work with people of all skill levels, assuming I believe that I can help them. Upon contacting me, I will work out a time for a short (free) interview in which we can discuss goals and playing abilities and how I can best suit your needs or the needs of your child. If you have any questions at all, feel free to get in contact with me.
