About this pro

I have 42 years of teaching Experience.

I am currently only doing online lessons for students who live locally.  Until Covid 19 calms down.

I 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.  I teach voice, piano and accordion at Groth Music on Nicolette when in person lessons are starting back up. 

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.  

Singing and playing piano and the accordion have always brought me great joy.   Sharing this with my students is one of the greatest things.

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.

    His initial response was both timely and contained the pertinent information.

    Michael is fun and easy-going. It makes the experience not as intimidating.

  • Shaaron Freeburg

    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.

What is your typical process for working with a new 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.
