Introduction: I care deeply about the experience that is created for customers from my work, and about the progression of my music students. I enjoy getting to know my clients and becoming someone they depend on to bring very high quality lessons or related to performance — a duo, trio, or up to 6 piece band. I love performing and I love training others to see how they grow. Please see the profile video or go to my website (below) to get an idea of details and one example of a 3 piece engagement party. You can also find me on Gig-salad. I work hard to provide committed professionals who will bring some of DFW’s very best talent to your event. I am someone who prepares details needed to yield top-notch service. I appreciate gigs booked both in advance and on-the-fly, as each offers different challenges and perfection opportunities. I am a full-time business manager, musician, and performer, and this all I do from sunrise til midnight daily. My biggest passion is to grow, inspire, and help others in the private sector of the music industry. I do not typically work in clubs or bars, as most clients are private hires, rehires, corporate, and largely public events. That doesn’t mean I will not perform in a club, just that those haven’t been the focus area of my target clientele. I love to sing and play all styles and genres of piano and I enjoy opportunities for mixed DJ events and live emceeing, and organizing and leading new people or those I’ve known for years, either way. Currently I am working on several originals and often enjoy orchestrating surprise entertainment for honorary clients. An example of this is when I write a specific song just for the hired event. I have done graduation songs, engagement songs, love songs, and much much more. I love songwriting. Most of my clients are in Westlake, Vaquero, Trophy Club, Keller, Southlake, Grapevine, Highland Park, University Park, Flower Mound, Las Colinas, Frisco, Plano, and Coppell. I have done hundreds of parties and have serviced people all over Texas, and this past two years done a lot of work remotely across the U.S. with teaching. Instruction offers great computer generated note-taking sessions, use of relevant technology, strong personal connection, high-level professional, effective communication, and insight that is appropriately fitted to learning. I do have a strong and creative commitment to reach educational success in a shorter time frame than 90% of other teachers and my clients will support that statement. All services are quoted by the job based on client need, number of people needed for band, etc. The typical songwriting fee is an extra 200$ and involves 10-12 in depth questions for creation. Client gets a copy of lyrics and a recording with all songwriter rights reserved. I feel lucky to be able to take on most any musical endeavor with fervor and integrity and love music infinitely.

Piano Lessons

My wife and I have hired Michelle Cullers to give piano lessons to our 9 yo daughter. After the first lesson, it was apparent that we had found a great teacher and coach. We can't wait to see the progress our daughter will make in the near future!

Maddie is super smart. I love her brain patterns. Last week she asked me a question about why our hands can't be numbered 1-5 from left to right. "Wouldn't piano just be easier?" Well, that was fun explaining ! She eventually just said, well they should've just done it that way from the start 'cause it seems sensible to me!". Way to go big logistical sis! Kiss that newborn brother for me:)

Piano Lessons

Michelle is fantastic! My husband and I are at different levels in learning piano. Michelle got us started at the perfect level. She was very timely with her responses to my questions and was able to begin our lessons right away. The best teacher I have ever had!!
StarBound Music and Entertainment's reply
I am excited for both of you! It is going to be fun to watch Linda and David learn how to play new solos, and work up their skills, as we figure out various ways to play and get hands going again.

She makes every lesson fun and enjoyable while also allowing you to express yourself and make each lesson about what your goals are. I would absolutely recommend Michelle to anyone. Hands down!

Thank you Michelle for seeing the talent in me and helping me to bring it out. With your guidance, I'll reach my goals in no time!

Michelle was amazing to work with. She made our daughters engagement party a blast. She brought in a couple of other musicians as well and came up with the perfect for music for the night. She even took the time to write a special love song.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    You will be deeply grateful for your investment.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first lesson is me getting to know you and asking a bunch of questions. For little kids, it’s all about building trust and having fun the first few lessons. A new customer will need 12 weeks to find their groove as we set goals, evaluate learning style, and particular progression needs. Generally, people have target areas that need focus. Strengths and weaknesses are determined in this timeframe and coaching is tailored accordingly . It is fun, progressive, visually stimulative, rewarding and we laugh a lot.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My degree is in Music and I also have years of experience in the field. I have led worship for several varying sized churches from 100-700 people and I have been writing since I was 19. I have performed for thousands of people. I have taken relative psychology training and music therapy courses at SMU also.
