When John Antone founded Axis Music Academy and started developing his proprietary teaching method, the academy was a cramped four-studio Southfield office where he gave guitar lessons. Sixteen years later, Axis has blossomed into a quartet of spacious, well-lit facilities that have one specialty in common: turn individual musicians into bands. Supplied with 12 private studios and all necessary instruments and gear, students get to set their own goals and chart their own course to learning, composing, and recording music. Whether that journey starts with them working through their favorite song on the guitar or stubbornly trying to play the tuba with their ear, the teaching staff helps them reach their goals using the full benefit of their expertise. Budding virtuosos can then combine their strengths during a slate of rock bands, glee clubs, and other group activities.
Axis Music Academy is also currently Michigan?s only Apple-authorized training center, which saves prospective producers a trip out of state if they want to get certified and tested in industry-standard recording software such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton, Final Cut, and Garage Band ?all taught using a brand-new suite of computer stations and the industry-insider techniques of Charlie Grover, the former drummer of gold-certified rock band Sponge.
Lessons rarely stay confined to the classroom, since Axis lines up opportunities for students to show off what they've learned onstage at local venues, sports games, and even on air during the morning news. It also stays active in the Detroit-area community by participating in Axis Music Academy 501(C)3 and other programs.

East Essence Chef, LLCprovides the public with opportunities to learn the recipes and cooking styles common to halal cuisine. Part of the company's educational mission takes place in a classroom, where Chef Nicholas Eaton teaches small groups halal cooking techniques while carefully observing dietary strictures. In his classroom, he uses meats from halal-approved suppliers, as well as knives, utensils, and cookware prepared without ever touching alcohol. He blends traditional halal recipes with a bit of international flair, thanks to his time spent cooking everywhere from Florida to Germany.
East Essence also organizes public events where visitors can learn other cooking techniques, sample recipes, and meet people also interested in the halal lifestyle. The team helps organize events such as the Halal Food Festival, a full-day gathering of chefs and diners that includes cooking demonstrations, tastings, and more.
Combining lecture with live-fire practice, day-long group classes cover topics such as proper handgun maintenance, legal regulations, and range etiquette. Training qualifies students to continue applying for a concealed-carry permit.

Each day at Hines Park CrossFit, trainers lead students through a fresh Workout of the Day—or WOD—each of which focus on broad, varied, and functional fitness. Unlike the emperor’s socks, workouts constantly change, but often entail exercises such as rowing, running, pull-ups, Olympic-style weight lifting, and gymnastics-inspired moves. By nature, the CrossFit regimen is broad and inclusive for practitioners of all size, age, and skill level.
We have created a nonjudgemental space where the focus is on the students and they can then turn inward to discover their inner peace. You practice in a warm dimly lit setting without windows or mirrors allowing you to focus on your practice inside the corners of your mat. A safe comforting place to be.
