Tricia Y.

Grand Rapids, MI

About Tricia

My passion is teaching music to students of all ages and all levels; sharing with them the joy of music. Music has the capacity to open up our hearts and minds to unknown worlds and cultures; thereby enabling us to express ourselves in unique and individualized ways. Music is not solely about learning the notes, or conquering Rachmaninoff or Grieg; each song is a melody of the heart, and should be navigated as such. When I teach lessons my students learn technique, structure and theory, but also voicing, expression, and interpretation.

I graduated from Multnomah University in December 20
11 with a Bachelors degree in Music. I specifically studied instrumentation (piano), vocalization, performance, conducting and composition.

I love music, I have since I was a little girl. From a very young age I loved that music took me and my imagination to worlds untold and it never mattered if I spoke German, Italian, French or Spanish, I could play the songs of those countries, and then it was like stepping into another world. This joy and excitement about music is what still carry with me as I continue my music career. And this is precisely what you can expect I will teach my students as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
The world of music is such a fun and joyous adventure, and this is only the beginning! Students can expect a lot of laughter and an enthusiastic and fun teaching style. As a piano and vocal teacher, I develop a curriculum for each student that is individualized in his or her specific learning style. I believe that students learn at their own pace, enabling me to learn with them while helping them find out what they love about music. The talents I bring to my students include a strong dedication to the art of teaching, commitment and loyalty to the them and a willing ear to listen. I can also offer my substantial experience with teaching music, a love for learning, and a personable non - confrontational teaching style. I am dedicated, punctual and hard working.
After six months of lessons students can expect to know their notes, being able to read music on their own. They will mostly likely have completed their first book and major song, and will have good momentum to get them going on their next musical story.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with piano, music stands, mirror, recording devices (minimum) and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***

About Elizabeth

*Only Available for lessons before 3PM- ALL TIMES AFTER 3PM ARE FULL*

2016 Joan Frey Boytim Independent Voice Teacher Award Winner!

I am a professional singer living in Grand Rapids, MI with a passion for teaching. My goal is to help my students become good musicians while sharing the joy and love of music with them. I have a Bachelor of Music from Grand Valley State University in Vocal Performance and a Master of Music from the Chicago College of Performing Arts in Voice Performance. From humble beginnings, I have maintained a busy studio since 2011. Since then, I have helped dozens o
f students excel and grow as singers several of whom have gone on to study music in college.

I hold membership in the National Association of Teachers of Singing, Sigma Alpha Iota and Michigan School Vocal Music Association. Through these organizations, my students have the opportunity to perform and be adjudicated by other music professionals, they also have the opportunity to compete for scholarships.

**** Due to time constraints and construction traffic in Grand Rapids, I do not offer lessons from your home ****

~What can you expect in our lessons?~

I strive to help my students become independent musicians as well as more confident singers. We work diligently to create healthy, well supported sounds. Whether we are working on classical music or pop music, it is all rooted in the same techniques. I emphasize proper breathing, support, posture, resonance, clarity, pure tone, power without pushing, and building vocal range.

We will always start by warming up. I use exercises designed to target the specific areas I've outlined above. From there, we will work on building technical skills based on the students need and skills.

My young singers (under 6th grade) will use the book "Singing Lessons for Little Singers" in their lessons.

Please note:

***We will not work on songs until the student is comfortable reading basic solfege melodies.***

We will work extensively on the use of solfege until the student is comfortable reading music. This can take a month or more depending the students abilities and practice habits.

After the student is comfortable with solfege and reading music, we will find repertoire that will provide appropriate challenges and opportunities for both growth and success. I always welcome input from students for styles they would like to sing.

I especially love working with beginning students helping them build their technique, learn about music, and find their voice. Some of my most successful students have had no experience singing before taking voice lessons.

~What styles will we work on?~

My training has been centered in classical music but I also am an avid lover of Jazz, Musical Theater, and Singer/Song Writer, Folk, and Pop music.

~Lessons in my studio~

I have an electric keyboard, computer with printer, and a sitting area for parents to observe while their children are working and learning. My studio is also pet-free.

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 their goals.

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

I am 62. About 2 years ago I started singing karaoke when we go out with our friends on Saturday nights. My voice needs a lot of help, so I am very limited to what I can sing, and what I do sing is just okay.
Kelsey is patient, and as part of my lesson, i was to list songs as part of my goal. She picked out a couple of them for me to work on to improve my overall singing. Each week she would pick out areas of the song and tell me what I need to do to umprove on it. I have quite a ways to go, lots of bad habits to correct, but I have been able to apply what I have learned so far to songs that I have already been doing and to other songs that I wouldnt have considered before I started 3 1/2 months ago.
Kelsey is a great teacher, and I really look forward to my lessons.

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.
