By: Scott Davis | April 22, 2015

There are people who are musically inclined, and then there are people (like me) who couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket or master a musical instrument if their life depended upon it. Luckily, for folks of all talent levels, there are music lessons available throughout Metro Detroit. These lessons can transform even the most inexperienced student into a musical machine.

Voice lessons, guitar lessons, drum lessons, violin lessons—teachings for pretty much any music-related item can be found in Detroit and its suburbs. If you have a hankering for learning something new, want to hone your skills or just have a passion for music, maybe taking a lesson is something you want to give more consideration to. If you are, in fact, looking for more information, please read on.

Ann Arbor Music Center, 312 S. Ashley St., Ann Arbor, does it all. Voice, guitar, bass, drums, cello, piano and even ukulele lessons (plus many more) are all offered here. Lessons are available for all ages, from children to adults, and all skill levels from novice to very advanced. AAMC has been providing lessons since 1998, and is owned and operated by real musicians.

Rock Band School is the next step after private lessons, and allows students to rehearse and play with a band. Students can also rent instruments if they do not possess their own.

Huber-Breese Music, 33540 Groesbeck Hwy., Fraser, has been in business since 1972; needless to say the brick and mortar store knows music. Huber-Breese offers private, individual lessons for guitar, mandolin, banjo, voice, piano, drums and more. Lessons cost $20 per session, which last for 30 minutes. In addition, the store sells just about any musical instrument, accessory or product you will need. Customers can shop online for amplifiers, speakers, vintage items and much more.

Plymouth School of Music, 724 N. Sheldon Rd., Plymouth, is another place that will provide lessons to any age, and any skill level. Guitar lessonsvoice lessons and piano lessons are all available here. The instructors here all have diverse musical backgrounds, which includes touring experience, music degrees, a high level achievement in private lessons and much more. If you are interested, you may enroll here.

Lozier Music Studio, 2118 W. Auburn Rd., Rochester Hills, was opened by Carrie Lozier in 2003. She doesn’t just think she can teach anybody how to play music, she absolutely knows that any person is capable of learning how to play. Her “Simply Music” method has taught students with no experience how to become true musicians. Students can sign up for a free intro lesson on the guitar, piano or flute. The company employs several quality instructors who can accommodate any age and skill level.

Grosse Pointe Music Academy, 19443 Mack Ave., Grosse Pointe Woods, teaches beginners through advanced students.The academy addresses many types of music: rock, country, blues, jazz, classical and more. Private lessons provide quite the variety of options with guitar, piano/keyboard, drum, voice, fiddle, saxophone and many more. Much like Ann Arbor Music Center, Grosse Pointe Music Academy matches students with similar ages, style, tastes and experience together via rock band classes. There is also a location in Canton.

Truth be told, there are hundreds of places in southeast Michigan ready to turn you into a musician. If being able to play music or sing is something you have dreamt about, it is up to you to turn it into a reality. Anybody willing to put time and dedication into his or her instrument of choice will be successful.
