Neil is wonderful! He was so good at inspiring my son and getting him excited about lessons when he wasn’t in the mood . Neil is so good with kids, he meets them at their level and makes lessons fun and “cool”. And he is such an amazing guitarist! I wouldn’t look further if you need guitar lessons.

Randy is amazing with my son. He is genuinely passionate about music and and inspiration to watch.
Music Achievers Conservatory has been a WONDERFUL experience and our family can't imagine our lives without Vanessa and her team!
Our oldest daughter has been taking lessons for 10 years and our youngest for one year. Vanessa's enthusiasm and love for music has been passed along to those who work for her and to those they teach.
Students at Music Achievers Conservatory learn how to play the piano, they learn theory and they are introduced to multiple styles of music like classical, pop, jazz, champ, etc. (not just classical pieces like many other piano teaching establishments).
Students also compete in multiple competitions throughout the year, which we think is the main reason our daughters have never complained about going to lessons! They are always excited to work on their competition pieces and to work toward a goal (not just a recital for their parents).
Music Achievers Conservatory also offers vocal lessons and my daughters enjoy their lessons very much! They also have fun activities and workshops throughout the year which keeps the younger students engaged and wanting to come back for more!
Being part of the Music Achievers Conservatory family has been a great experience and we HIGHLY recommend them for those who are just starting out or for those who once took lessons and have become bored. Music Achievers Conservatory is a place where there is PASSION for music, PASSION for teaching and PASSION for learning; you won't regret it!

She was a stickler on technique, which is so very important. Even if you could play the piece, but your technique was bad, she would get on you.

Marcello gave me the tools necessary to be able to play essentially whatever I want and play well. With concepts like deciding the length of a pause, how to gradually change the tempo, and deciding how to contrast dynamics, I gained the tools necessary to make these decisions on future pieces and learn how to make a piece my own.
One of the most fun collections to play is Marcello's 5 seasons - one piece for each of the 4 seasons plus a finale. I even won first place in a competition with his finale piece, and I remember how happy he was that his own composition was competitive against a myriad of challenging classical pieces that only skyrocket in difficulty as the competition becomes tougher. I did a small amount of composing myself, and he helped with edits and performance advice.
During my final year in high school, I switched our lessons to focus on the trumpet, which I have done in band for a while but felt that I wanted more of a challenge. Marcello recognized that my attacks are soft, so we worked on opera style music to help me work on my weakness. I have not worked on solo pieces for trumpet, and Marcello introduced me to challenging and fun pieces: Sounds of the Hudson, Bride of the Waves, and the famous "Carnival of Venice". The Carnival of Venice is a wonderful piece, so I performed it at Marcello's concert. I even found accompaniment from an orchestra that I liked, so I wrote out chords for the piano and gave him the challenge of a custom piano support.
Before I left college, he introduced me to music chord theory. It was a great treat that I continued learning about in jazz electives at Michigan State. We also have hobbies in common. We played chess against each other and at first he was stronger but then I improved and managed to win and make games more competitive. During the years after lessons, we played tennis together and also had competitive games and another way to stay connected.
Perhaps the strongest outcome of our relationship was that I inspired my younger cousin Frankie to take lessons. Marcello said Frankie is the strongest piano player he has taught, with his ability to learn quickly and perform pieces that none of his other students have done, such as the 3rd movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata if I remember correctly. He is likely one of the strongest competitors in competition as well.
I hope I gave insight into Marcello's versatility and advanced level of teaching.
