    Eddie is great! I really appreciate his mellow but encouraging teaching style.

  • Alan Shulak

    Eddie has a real love and passion for music. That passion comes out in his teaching ability. He’s very good at helping the beginning student learn and perfect his or her instrument. He’s great at explaining why things are the way they are and really helps you perfect the proper technique to master your instrument. I take bass lessons with Eddie but would highly recommend him for guitar lessons too. He’s friendly and personable and all around a great guy.

    I've been taking lessons with Eddie for over nine years now. Not only has he taught me how to play the guitar but he has introduced me to some amazing music and become a great friend. Thanks for everything Eddie, see you next week!

    When my 14 year old son started out with bass lessons he knew nothing of music theory and by the age of 20 he was headlining with his band at shows. He was having so much fun I started taking lessons when I turned 51. Ed has great teaching skills that complements his knowledge of music theory and will customize his teaching methods to the student's skills, knowledge and age. Ed is a master bass player and just watching him play is an inspiration. At 58 I still take lessons from him and also play in a band. Something I never thought possible when I started. Thanks Eddie, could have never done it without you.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The overall goal is twofold, learn to operate the instrument correctly, learn how music works. Of course we start simply by learning a few notes at a time as our hands get used to working the instrument.

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

I am an alumni of Oakland University and Berklee College of Music. I started teaching in the late 70's. I have also been a performer and studio musician for over 35 years.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Rates do vary some, my home studio starts at $25/half hour, students home starts at $35/half hour. I am available at Motor City Guitar in Waterford and the rate there is only $18/half hour.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with everybody, I generally start with students 10-12, depending on individual case, I don't turn down anyone interested in learning music!
