Music Authority's diverse and experienced team of instructors coaches students of all ages in their choice of eight instruments in one-on-one, 30-minute lessons held once a week. Music mavens teach students how to decipher sheet music and tones expressing Morse code messages as they usher in rehearsal compositions for piano, guitar, drums, violin, flute, accordion, trumpet, or voice. Musicians in training learn about music theory and technical elements such as finger placement and submission holds to wrestle tunes from a stubborn trumpet. After sharpening their skills in the lessons, all students may showcase their mastery in the annual spring and winter recitals.

The Detroit Institute of Arts takes the “s” at the end of its name seriously. The immense Beaux Arts building on Woodward Avenue isn’t only a setting for a top-tier collection of visual works that include Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry frescoes, a van Gogh self-portrait, and ancient sculptures from Africa and Asia. It also opens the doors of its lecture halls, event spaces, and auditoriums for craft workshops, wide-ranging talks from historians and people who know how to draw really good cubes, film, and music. The latter two art forms find a home in the Detroit Film Theatre, a gilded, neoclassical auditorium that preserves a sense of coziness amid the grandeur.
