Kelsey P. Grand Rapids, MI

I teach guitar lessons for beginner level up to intermediate. I use FJH curriculum for younger students and New York Guitar school curriculum for older students. Students will learn how to read music, play chords and rhythms, and learn how to play their favorite songs!

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. ...

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.

Mark B. Fruitport, MI

My lessons are tailored to each individual student based on their goals and skill level. While being thorough, I try to keep the lessons relaxed and fun. Playing the guitar is fun, and learning to do so can be fun too!

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!
Susan B. Ada, MI

I begin teaching privately to students ages 3 to adults. All beginners are welcomed! All styles and levels are taught. We even has pre-instrumental private lessons (20 minutes) for those who want their children to get individualized music time without being in a group setting. Woodwind and brass lessons begin around age 7 or 8 years old.

About Susan

I also specialize in teaching the younger students (ages 3 to 6) privately. I also like to begin elementary students on the woodwind and brass instruments at an early age (between 7 and 8 years old). I also will take your 2.5 year old for a private pre-instrumental music lesson (20 minutes) to engage in playing hand percussion instruments, singing along with fun preschool videos and exploring piano to make sounds without being in a group setting.

Tom G. Grand Rapids, MI

I have been playing guitar since 2004. I am not a virtuoso, and I do not learn or teach much in-depth theory. My teaching philosophy is founded in the idea that everyone, no matter their age, can learn simple chord progressions and rhythms to start making music right away.

About Tom

Beginning at a young age, I have self-taught myself a handful of instruments and continue to collect them in my studio. Students are welcome to try out any instruments they want to, ranging from cello to hammered dulcimer to guzheng. Over the last 5 years I have performed music professionally, recording multiple albums and playing upwards of a hundred and some shows a year. My personal approach to learning a new instrument is through creative experimentation through recording. Simple songs can be constructed and recorded using the myriad of instruments that I have. This not only enables the student to learn the instrument of their choice, but also experiment with other instruments and learn by ear how to construct different parts and listen to how they work together. This, combined
