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 2011 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

Excellent, Professional Teacher

Miss Tricia is an absolutely wonderful music instructor. I'm an adult student learning to develop my voice, and she is able to quickly identify the problems in my vocal technique and help me improve. Her lesson plans keep me on task and develop my tool sets. She's also great with explaining the theory behind the music and introducing me to different works and styles of music. Though I'm not receiving piano instruction from her myself, I have heard her work and watched her instruction, and I am highly impressed by both. She gets my highest recommendation.

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.

Coming in as never having any singing background, Kelsey has taught me that I can actually sing and that I can sing a lot higher than I ever thought I could. YAY!!! I'm a visual learner, and Kelsey uses a lot of visual techniques with teaching me how to sing. That, in return, has helped me to catch on a lot quicker.

Kelsey is so helpful to a novice/wannabe singer. She senses what needs work and addresses the issue(s). She has me work on what I want to sing, in addition to what she feels I need basic help on. Kelsey is helping me think about what I need to think about and "listen" before singing.
Glad to have found her and her expertise.
