About Me

Hello, my name is Josh and I'd love start guitar or bass guitar lessons with you. I have been teaching lessons for over five years. I studied bass guitar performance at GRCC and have been consistently playing and gigging in the local area for over seven years. I am currently the music director at a local church and gig in an indie folk group called Lower Class Saints. I have over six years of professional lessons under my belt and have played consistently since I started.

About Me

Hey there! I'm excited you dropped by my profile. I'm even more excited that you are thinking about taking music lessons or are planning on giving the gift of music lessons to a loved one. A little bit about me so you can understand how my teaching benefits my students: I went to DePaul University in Chicago,IL and studied Music (voice) and Religious Studies. I have been teaching guitar and piano lessons professionally for three years, however, I've been teaching on and off again for over ten. Through that time I've taught diverse groups of people, all with different skill levels. No matter where you are on your musical journey or who you are, I can help get you where you want to go!I also have extensive experience as a professionally touring musician. I currently front and manage my band The Northern Skies. If you are looking to start playing with a band, professionally or otherwise, I can help you on that path. Remember: it doesn't matter what skill level you are now! I can help you get there!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every lesson should be fun and comfortable! Depending on the students age and skill level, I pick out books that work for each student, and also ask the student to bring in a piece that they want to work on. Maybe we can learn that new radio hit or the oldie but a goodie that you've been wanting to learn for years! However, learning from books or internet videos alone do not offer the kind of one on one attention students need while learning an instrument. I have the experience needed and a unique curriculum that is based off of understanding the student's musical goals. For beginners, I teach basic techniques and chords through easy songs to get the student playing as soon as possible.Learning music has to be fun! I am a very laid back and believe that learning music involves good communication, having an open mind, and the desire to have fun and LEARN! So I can be very laid back while interacting with students and their families. However, learning to play an instrument takes a lifetime of practice. Even the pros practice every day! Therefore, practice is a vital part of taking lessons and something I take very seriously. I hope you will choose me as your music teacher!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The teacher's home studio lessons are taught in a downstairs home office/music room. The home includes electric guitars, bass, amps, acoustic guitars, classical acoustic guitar, drum set, electric piano and books. Seating is available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the programming. I expect students to provide their own instrument and to buy the required materials (e.g. book if applicable)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching students guitar. However, I am able to teach a wide range of instruments because of my education and experience as a professional musician.

Kelsey P. Grand Rapids, MI

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Performance, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

I love singing! I've been singing for as long as I can remember, and I've been creating songs and playing guitar since shortly after that. I have a Bachelor's in Music from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI and I have been a full time working musician for two and a half years.

After graduating, I worked for two years at Baker College in Owosso, MI as a tutor for English and Math in the school library and eventually started teaching a basic English class. During these years I developed a passion for teaching. I love helping students discover skills they never thought they had, and helping them develop those skills so they can become even better. Whether I'm teaching Singing, Performance, Songwriting, or English, I strive to find ways to help each student achieve their goals.

Let's set big goals and achieve big dreams together!
