Joe K. Rockford, MI

About Joe

I've been playing almost all my life. Since I enjoy it so much I love to share what I know with others. I've learned a lot on my own and from 4 different teachers. I play in bands almost all stringed instruments but my main expertise is guitar.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a pretty laid back teacher but I push the fundamentals using the Hal Leonard methods. If you practice every day you can expect to finish your first book in around 6 months. You'll know on guitar all your natural notes in the first 3 frets and play a half dozen chords.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Hal Leonard Methods and supplements for all instruments. I specialize in Country/folk styles.

Kelsey P. Grand Rapids, MI

About Kelsey

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, I strive to find ways to help each student achieve ...

My 7-year-old was very eager to start guitar lessons. She has enjoyed her lessons with Kelsey and is so proud of the progress she sees in herself every week. Kelsey is great with her: very optimistic, encouraging, and patient. When she sees my daughter struggle, she points out the positives, assures her that she can do it, and moves on to success. I would recommend Kelsey to anyone looking to start their young child in lessons.

Kelsey is a very talented teacher. She knows how to get things done and make it fun. She is an ardent musician that instills the fundamentals of singing as a go to master. I am in my 70s and I am very happy with her instruction. It is great to be able to have complete confidence in Kelsey to know she can take me to my fullest potential. She has a fine studio conducive of a relaxed environment to learn in. I especially appreciate her holistic approach to singing. Her energy level is contagious. I can very strongly recommend her to any aspiring singer. She is a very accomplished professional vocalist. Thanks Kelsey!

I started voice lessons with Kelsey a while ago, and was very impressed with her lesson. In no time at all, she was able to determine my level of singing and was able to give me tips and techniques to help me excel.

Since then, I have learned and experienced, lessons that are fun, interesting, and relevant to what I want to do with my voice. She is always willing to work on whatever topics I bring up, and figure out how to make the songs we choose work for me, rather that struggling to figure out our ways around a melody.

I would strongly recommend Kelsey to anyone who wants to learn music. She knows her stuff and presents it in a fun, interesting way.

About Mark

I have over 30 years of experience with the guitar and would be happy to share my knowledge with you.

Lessons are given in my home studio in a relaxed and casual setting. I instruct basic music theory, guitar playing techniques, and how to properly practice.

I also go into guitar setup and maintenance, how to properly care for and get the most out of your instrument. A guitarist should know his guitar....intimately! I will teach you how to properly tune, intonate and service your instrument.

Additionally, I like to touch on the intangibles of being a musician and to help any student eventually have the confidence to perform well at a live venue. Playing for an audience is a big part of why many of us picked up the guitar in the first place....we want to perform! I can help you ...

My guitar teacher

I've only been playing the guitar for a year or so, but I didn't really make much progress until I started lessons with Mark. Having a good teacher like Mark has helped me stay motivated and inspired to get better on the guitar. With his help, I've progressed faster than I thought possible. Regardless of who you choose, find yourself a good teacher and you'll be glad you did...I am!
