My 12 year old daughter had her 1st violin lesson with Ms. Stephanie. The instructor was great, very positive, kept it fun, interesting, and a great motivator. I would highly recommend her, and the GP Music Academy of Clinton Township even though based on just one lesson. I'm not a newbie to music/music instruction, so I feel this rating is well deserved.

I've been taking drum lessons with Mike for almost a year now. I can say with confidence that I've been progressing from lesson to lesson under his instruction and guidance. If I were to describe Mike as a teacher so far, he would be the Yoda of drums; he's positive, gentle, and fun. But at the same time, he's firm and pushes you to be the best drummer you can be. Mike also calibrates his lesson based on your current drum level; he never teaches something that is too easy nor does he teach something that is too difficult. Instead, he has guided me through challenging but achievable exercises. Progression has been improving one baby-step at a time. This wouldn't have been possible without Mike's attention to detail, patience, encouragement, and continuous feedback. With that being said, these small baby-steps over the past year have led to tremendous improvement in my skills in 2016. Looking forward to getting even better in 2017. I would highly recommend Mike for private lessons if you wish to be a JEDI DRUM MASTER!

Alec does so well with my daughter. She sometimes likes to try and do her own thing and instead of pushing her to always focus, which isn't always an easy task for a child, he'll at times encourage her free play to get it out and then she's back to wanting to learn. She very much enjoys going because he makes it a fun learning experience. She sounds better each time going so the improvement is astounding. I really appreciate how good Alec is with her and I've already recommended this place to friends based simply on how incredible he is.

Brian Harris is an amazing drum teacher! First off, he works with you, no matter how basic your skill level, by developing the most important and fundamental skills needed to become a good drummer. His lesson plans are tailored to your progress and ability, always providing the student with enough of a challenge that it isn't boring and it isn't so difficult that it is discouraging. He manages to pack a large amount of work into just 30 minutes, making for an engaging lesson, while holding scintillating conversation with you on anything drum related you care to talk about. He keeps the lesson focused with a great attention to detail necessary for perfecting those fundamentals, while telling you hilarious or very interesting stories about drummers or drum-related experiences. And from what I've seen I can confidently say that this man is one talented drummer. He'll give you several different rhythms to try out at home and when he demo's them he really works those drums like a pro, improvising and impressing you at the same time. Finally, I'm 23 years old and was self-conscious about starting drum lessons at this age, with no previous percussion experience or exposure. I simply became interested in it by chance and was recommended him by a friend, and I couldn't have been luckier. He welcomed me into his studio with open arms and had me grooving and more excited about drums than I had ever been. Brian Harris is the guy to go to for recording/studio work, lessons, drum tuning, or jamming, He knows EXACTLY what he is doing.

Our daughter loves the guitar again thanks to Alexander! He has a great teaching style. We used to push her to practice before, but now she picks up the guitar on her own and can't wait for her next lesson because of her instructor. Glad we found him!

My son had never had drum lessons before so he was pretty bad at first. We can definitely tell the difference over the past 2 months when he is down stairs practicing. Scott is very patient and my son really enjoys his lessons.

Devin is one of these guys that get it! Ive had a really good experience with him. He's been teaching me privately for about 2 years and has shown me how to connect what was missing in my playing to what I thought I understood! Fast forward.. I've just released a record and finished a 3 week US tour.....I never wouldve had the ability or confidence without him

I was a student of Sam's for about two years, and I was extremely pleased with the level of improvement that my drumming took in such a short amount of time. Sam is great at breaking down concepts and explaining them in an easy to grasp way. His analogies are both entertaining and informative, the perfect combo to make any concept stick. The best part about working with Sam is that I could bring any concern or problem I'd been having into a lesson, and he would instantly have a creative way of breaking it down and showing me how I should practice it. Sam not only taught me important technical aspects of drumming, but he taught me how to practice effectively, and how to continue learning outside of lessons. I would highly recommend Sam as a teacher for students of any level.

My name is Devin Hammond, and I play drums. I have been playing for over 5 years now in genres ranging from funk, Latin, jazz, gospel, and contemporary music. As an instructor, my main focus is to give students the fundamentals of being a musician and learning how to not just play music but feel it as well. I am very flexible and open to my students and will give them everything I can offer as an instructor.

About

I am a freelance jazz musician in the Michigan area. I am proficient in all forms of music, but I enjoy and am best at playing jazz, soul, hip-hop and funk. I am available for any sort of performance. I can construct a group upon request (i.e., trio, quintet, etc.). I am also available for private lessons on upright and electric bass, piano and keyboards, drum set and percussion and guitar. My main instrument and/or what I studied in university is upright bass, so naturally, I would be able to help most in that area. That being said, I play the drums and the piano professionally as well. All the best, Aidan Cafferty

About

I am an award-winning composer, published music theorist, and doctoral candidate at the University of Michigan. I have over three years of experience teaching composition and theory, both privately and in the classroom.

Lessons are for all different kinds of techniques: rock and jazz drum set, rudimental/marching band drumline techniques, concert and orchestral, etc. Lessons cost $20 for a half hour and $40 for an hour. You can do an hour lesson every other week or a half-hour lesson every week. We will work out a schedule with whatever will work for both of us.
