My Music Qualifications For Teaching
As a lifelong musician, I enjoy sharing my love for music with my students. I earned a bachelors degree in music education and a masters in performance, and I have been actively teaching flute, piano, and other instruments since 2001. Along the way, I’ve performed professionally and worked with numerous bands and chamber groups.
About My Unique Music Teaching Approach
I don’t approach lessons with an agenda, and you won’t necessarily have to practice scales and arpeggios for three hours a day to be in my studio. I love working with motivated students, but even if your goals are to simply learn a few of your favorite songs, learn how to read music, or better understand the instrument that your child is learning, I’m happy to work with you. My students can work on any genre they wish to, and the fundamentals that we cover will help any and every musician.About Cosgrove
In-person, Virtual, and Hybrid Lessons are Available!
Thanks to Zoom, Skype, and other platforms, we can now work together regardless of your location or time zone. I have been working with students virtually in a 1-on-1 setting for several years, and you can learn just as much about music and your instrument with live, online lessons. We’ll work together to find a suitable camera angle and microphone configuration for lessons, and whether you simply don’t live near Bucks County or a competent teacher, or you want to cut traveling out of your schedule, get in touch about music lessons today.

Read What Our Students Are Saying
“My son Scott was a "play by ear" pianist when he began lessons with Michelle. Now he is reading and writing music. Michelle gears lessons toward the individual student's style and genre. We are very pleased with her professionalism and dedication.”
