Welcome to Musicmakers!

I hope you'll join me ~ Karen Roth, often known as "Miss Karen" ~ and the Musicmakers families for Music Together® classes or Suzuki violin lessons.  Musicmakers has been providing quality music education to metroDetroit families since 1993 ~ now in the 24th year!  

FREE SAMPLE CLASSES are available for families who would like to experience Music Together before registering for a full term.  See the News Item to the right (possibly "more news" at the bottom.)

SPRING CLASSES BEGIN APRIL 11, 12 & 13!  Spring families -  construction on 11 Mile Road requires us to approach the church from Middlebelt Road because 11 Mile is closed at Orchard Lake Road.

REGISTRATIONS ARE STILL WELCOME!  The Classes Page and the Registration Page cover all the details for Spring Term.  If you have any questions, please "contact us" from the menu.  The WEDNESDAY 9:30-10:15 CLASS HAS A FEW OPENINGS, and other classes have waiting lists.  

All INFANTS, TODDLERS AND PRESCHOOLERS and their participating adults are welcome in ANY "mixed-ages" Music Together class with Musicmakers! You'll enjoy making music with your child in weekly classes, even if you do not consider yourself "musical."  We blend FUN and LEARNING, filling 45 minute classes with music and teaching you how to continue the musical play at home with your family!  See the Classes Page for more Music Together description.

MUSIC TOGETHER is RESEARCH-BASED and is built on a wonderful "informal music education" philosophy ~ nurturing learning through participation, experimentation, and joyful experiences in class and with family.  Experience Music Together with Musicmakers and discover the LEARNING and FUN we inspire!

SUZUKI VIOLIN study is "formal music education," carefully teaching correct violin technique and striving for accuracy in every musical detail. Staying light-hearted and POSITIVE, and taking SMALL STEPS for lots of successes, Suzuki violin study should be FUN!  Day-time private lesson spaces are available.  Students seeking after-school and evening lessons can be wait-listed.  Violin registration is handled by email or telephone, unlike Music Together's automated online registration form.  The "Violin Study" page has much more information!  Please "contact us" to express interest and I'll reply as soon as possible.

Both Music Together and the Suzuki Method are international programs, taught locally by Karen Roth of Musicmakers Center.  Music Together is early childhood music education for infants, toddlers and preschoolers (with participating parents/caregivers) at it's best!  Fantastic family FUN enhances the LEARNING!   

Suzuki violin lessons offer a magical combination of private and group study for  students ages 4 and above in a method that enriches families' lives.  Learn about Suzuki violin instruction with Karen Roth on this website's "Violin Study" page.  Online Registration is for Music Together only; registration for Suzuki studies is handled individually.

Please select "contact us" for easy emailing regarding either Music Together classes or Suzuki violin lessons. 

What's New

11 Mile Road is under construction!  Drivers need to approach Nardin Park United Methodist Church from Middlebelt Road, because 11 Mile is completely closed between Orchard Lake Road and the church.  The barricade by Middlebelt says "Road Open to Nardin Park Church" so drive in!  Thank you for your patience with the construction challenge this spring.  We anticipate a beautiful road completed just in time for fall classes!

Suzuki Violin Recital ~ May 2

Musicmakers Suzuki violin students will present a SPRING RECITAL on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00 at Christ Presbyterian Church in the Sanctuary.  (23455 Novi Road in Novi ~ west side of Novi Road between 9 and 10 Mile Roads)  This one-hour recital will feature beginners to advanced students, pre-schoolers to teens, performing memorized, mastered solos. All are welcome to attend, including children.  

Families with young children ~ To keep the experience positive, recognize when your child has had enough and then feel free to exit between performers.  A brief, happy recital will be a wonderful beginning to a lifetime of live music performances!  Seeing other children perform can be lots of fun and motivational!
