What Our Communities And Schools Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let others do the talking!

Molly started in the Capital Music Programs “Mostly Mozart” last October.  Until that day she had never played any instruments.  This was the first opportunity we had to introduce any of our children to extracurricular musical education through our school district before the Sixth grade.  After two weeks in the program Molly was showing more interest in practicing her violin than she was in playing video games.  On the days when she had her lessons after school she looked forward to them so much that once she even tried to go to school with a fever so she wouldn’t miss her lesson.

Through the amazing instruction she has received she has blossomed into a true music lover.  After a little over a year in the Capital Music Program Molly requested a “real” piano.  We decided to get her one for her birthday, and within a week she managed to self-teach herself several pieces on the piano.

There is no way her father & I could have ever have known the incredible talent Molly had without the guidance and instruction she received in the Capital Music Program.

No matter where it takes her in her future the most important thing she has gained is a sense of fun, enjoyment and a deep true love of music.  For that more than anything we are so grateful to Dale & Sasha for sharing their gift with Molly and all the other children who are lucky enough to be a part of the program.

As the Recreation and Enrichment Coordinator for Walled Lake Schools Community Education Department, I am thrilled to work with Dale Anderson and his Mostly Mozart, elementary violin program. As a team, we have worked diligently over the past two years to offer this quality program to our elementary students. Our violin classes and camps have doubled in attendance since inception of this program. Sandy George

Dear Dale,

You cannot imagine how much we appreciate the interest you have taken in, and the support you have demonstrated toward Evan. You surely recognized opportunity, or you perhaps you created opportunity. Either way, we are grateful for you and you have truly enhanced our family’s life.

Thank you, Elyse & David

Dale Anderson is the reason that I made it into All-State Orchestra. I’ve worked with him for six years, and he helped guide me every step of the way.

Dale balances a disarmingly casual temper with a ferocious musical appetite. He teaches practical method above all else, concentrating on the fundamentals of music so frequently ignored by after-school music teachers.

Despite simple goals, Dale’s practicing curriculum can be described no better than elite. Dale assigns students combinations of excerpts, scales, and etudes all laser-focused on a chosen element of kontrabass method, in what is sometimes called the “conservatory style” of bass education.

In my time with Dale I have practiced etudes from Montag-Lajos, Streicher, Storch-Hrabe, Simandl, Petracchi, and Kreutzer while also refining scales from Fleisch, Rollez, and what is no less than Dale Anderson’s own self-written scale book. Dale gives his all to every student, every lesson, every week, and the payoff is phenomenal.
