In my experience, I have taken piano lessons for an hour once a week for the past month or so. Walking into Southtown Guitar, both Dean and Jesse are very friendly, and they know you by name. They always make sure to greet you when you come in, and they're always greeting you with a smile. I haven't personally had Dean as a teacher, but I have had Jesse. Jesse's very understanding when it comes to me not being able to practice a lot because of school work and other things that come up, and he's also very patient with me. During the lesson he answers my questions, and tries to help me understand. After the lesson they write down all that I need to do to practice that week so that I don't forget. Jesse's also very understanding when you come back saying that you weren't able to practice something because you didn't remember how to do it, and then he gives you a refresher and tries to come up with ways to help you remember it. Overall, Southtown Guitar has met and exceeded my expectations.
I am an adult student, and Michelle was an awesome piano teacher who shared her wealth of knowledge and made lessons fun and engaging. She was also very flexible in working with any special needs I had related to my lessons. Amidst a very busy schedule, piano lessons were something I looked forward to each week.
I'm incredibly happy with my daughter's piano lessons. It's wonderful to see how much patience, time, and care goes into her lesson. Rachelle is knowledgable and provides many solutions for different learning styles.
Zach offers exactly what we were looking for. He makes lessons both fun and educational, offering a kid friendly approach to teaching music.
My son took lessons for 6 years with Jessica. In that time, the development was breathtaking. By the age of 11, he was playing pieces by Chopin, Mozart, Debussy, Burgmuller and a number of other classical composers. He eagerly anticipated the lessons each week and looked forward to working on the pieces with her. During Christmas breaks over the past 3 years, when piano lessons would not take place, he would tackle a new Chopin piece on his own and would proudly play it for her at the first lesson in January after the break. She was such a great inspiration to him, it's a shame she no longer teaches in Chicago. He's 13 now and is still playing and giving public performances, using the solid fundamentals that Jessica provided to keep progressing and playing more difficult music. I would strongly recommend Jessica as a piano teacher and I'm sure her approach and method of teaching will make any child (or adult, for that matter) a better musician.
My daughter does music lessons here and seems to like it, no problems so far. Why do people like to degrade businesses, hmm...maybe because of bad ratings?
Our daughter has been taking piano lessons with Lindsey for one year. She has learned far more in that time than she did with her previous instructor in four years. Lindsey is so encouraging and patient and makes learning fun!
Amanda has been my 10 year-old son's piano teacher for over four years. She is knowledgeable, kind, patient, and an overall excellent teacher! He looks forward to his lessons and has improved tremendously. Amanda will build upon his existing genre interests, so that he is always fully engaged. She really is the best piano teacher!
She has been very easy to work with and allows us to have a flexible schedule. Her teaching style is good and she really knows her stuff.
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.
Lisa has taught my son flute since January 2011 with outstanding results. Then, he was a 9 year old boy who had never been introduced to playing or reading music before. He now plays exceptionally well - playing at our church and in a local advanced band. She has coached our whole family through the basics, is in tune with his learning style and professional in every way.
Kamie was a refreshing change from previous "by-the-book" piano teachers. She does not take a rigid approach, allowing my children to explore their interests in music and help them achieve their goals. The kids enjoy their lessons and enjoy Kamie.
Lessons are affordable and geared around what you want to learn!
I provide private lessons specializing in piano and flute. I work with preschool to adults. I will travel to you (for a minimal fee in addition to the lesson fee), or we can meet at a separate location. I have been a pianist and flutist for over 40 years. I also provide accompanying services. I will play piano and/or organ for weddings/funerals. I believe that practice is very important and will have student and parent sign a practice contract. I believe in positive reinforcement.
You, and/or your child, will learn your instrument in order to play songs you want to play. You will gain patience, confidence, poise, perseverance, commitment, coordination, self-esteem, creativity, self-expression, pride in achievement, concentration, fun and relaxation. Your instructor is a very personable individual who takes the time to get to know everyone. You will learn how to practice efficiently and fast and work around your busy schedule. You will have 24/7 access to your instructor. You will be in an elite academy with very few chosen students.
I am a graduate student at WMU, majoring in music. I have a bachelor's degree in jazz studies/piano. I've been teaching for six years. I teach anything from classical to jazz and pop -- whatever is most interesting to you. Feel free to contact me to see if I'm right for you!
I am a full-time music teacher. I have just recently started back with the private lessons. I have played the piano since I was four. I was a voice and piano major in college. I have been teaching music in the public schools for the last 19 years, and I am also an organist for a local church.
I offer years of music theory and performance experience. My lessons are effective and affordable!
I teach beginners piano lessons privately in my home. My teaching schedule offers flexible times during Monday, Tuesday and Friday, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Students will work in three or four different skill books. These skills are theory, technique, piano, and sight-reading will be added after students grow musically to that level. The method of teaching students is through The Bastien Series of piano, piano for the young beginner, The Primer Series and piano for adult beginners. Students ages 16 and can start in the older beginner's series. Learning beginner's piano is a rewarding experience and will enhance self-esteem, confidence and self-control. Students will also be able to show their skills during a future performance.
I began taking piano lessons as a young child, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree from Marygrove College in Detroit. I've taught in elementary classroom situations, and have taught vocal music in various public schools at the elementary and junior high school levels. Besides this, I taught at Allegro School of Music in Grand Rapids for a period of time, and also gave keyboard/piano lessons in music studios and in my own home. I get along well with children as well as adults, and try to be encouraging and patient when working with students.
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.
