At Mistalocks, students learn dances with such upbeat names as boppin' and steppin', just two of the studio's unconventional lineup of partner dance styles. In group classes, master instructor Buford Collins starts at the beginning, showing students how to count out rhythms, feel the music, and follow steps with a partner. His specialty is Chicago Style Steppin', which has similar characteristics to West Coast Swing, but he also leads students through the steps of Detroit ballroom, Graystone, tango, and salsa. For him, these dance styles are more than just a way to move to music. He considers them a fundamental part of humanity's heritage, much like reality television.

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.

A Chat with Phil Black Photography, LLC

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Focusing on small class sizes, you will be given individual attention to assure you understand how to use your camera to take the photos you want.

Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
The class will cover how to avoid taking blurry pictures, what mode your dial should be set to depending on what your photographing, exposure settings such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO, composition guidelines, portrait photography, how to clean your camera, and flash basics.

What do you love most about your job?
I love interacting with people and making great photos. To be able to share with others the joy of the moment is priceless. My second passion in life is teaching, and so teaching photography is a lot of fun and really perfect for me.
