I have 42 years of teaching Experience.
I am highly sought after, and need to know what days and times (hours) you have available. My schedule can move around so this is extremely important. I also teach in Maplewood, Bloomington, and in your home. So it is even more important for you to tell me what times and days you are available. I teach in a 5 county area and I am in different places on different days. I teach voice and accordion at Groth Music on Nicolette.
I have taught at all levels including college, and I still have college students. I have an average retention rate of 7 years. Some have been with me longer than that. Earliest piano student has been 4 years old so far.
I care deeply about students learning to perform music.
I make lessons fun and entertaining by allowing students to have full imput on what songs or types of songs we concentrate on.
I have always loved working with people and teaching my students, and learning from my students. Music does a great deal of healing and helps us grow and get through life.
Michael is fun and easy-going. It makes the experience not as intimidating.
Michael works so well with children/young adults. His multiple talents and gifts, voice, piano, musical instruments, plus his intuitive understanding of each student's abilities makes each session fun and progressive. Michael's creative abilities and patience allows for expansive growth of each student.
I find out what they know. And go over several music selections at their ability to see what they would practice.
I go over what they need to practive and make sure they know what they are going to be doing musically.
I also make sure the parents understand what their child is working on.
