Excellent teacher!

Josh gave me lessons for a period of time in 2010 and really helped me learn the basics of guitar. One of the best parts about lessons with Josh is his strong grasp of music. He not only knows how to play multiple instruments but he has a strong understanding of music theory. While learning to play guitar he helped teach me the basics of music which made a better musician.

He's smart and a fantastic teacher and I had a great time taking lessons with him.

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 their goals.

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

*** Lesson Details ***
Singing-
*sing warm ups at the beginning of every lesson
*choose songs that are at your level of singing, this means that if you choose a song I don't think you're ready to sing, we'll choose a different song until you're ready.
*set goals for performance.

Songwriting-
*break through writer's block
*explore your creativity
*journal every week

Guitar-
*Learn your favorite songs!
*Learn scales, chords, and basic music theory

About Val
Val has been teaching Piano and Kindermusik for over 12 years. She began teaching private piano lessons while living in Hazelwood, MO and after moving to North Liberty, IA in 2008, she opened MusicEveryday and quickly grew from 2 to 23 students per week. In 2011, she joined Marek Szmyrgala as a piano teacher at Music4Life in North Liberty and added another 13 students to her weekly teaching schedule. All of her students had a variety of interests in music from classical, to jazz, to pop and even wrote their own music. Val prepared her students for 2 recitals every year and several students
participated in the Music Development Program, all earning First Class Honors.
The foundation of my teaching philosophy is the awareness of how different every person is in the way that they learn. My first goal when I meet a new student is getting to know them before choosing materials. It is the student’s learning style that should determine the method and materials that I assign.

My kids agree that Miss Val was our favorite piano teacher. Four of them took piano lessons from her for a few years recently.
Miss Val uses fun and creative strategies to engage the littlest students. She manages to stay calm and kind but firm when needed.
Miss Val caters to each student's style and interests. She often brings in extra music and fun, supplemental learning material.
Miss Val helps students establish good habits and provides motivation to practice regularly. I am positive she will be your favorite teacher, too!

David is the definition of professional. His trumpet knowledge and ability to help me improve in lessons week to week has been beyond beneficial. His talents extend much further than the trumpet and that aids in the lesson experience as a whole.
