I am currently on staff music as a music director at Westpointe Church in Grand Rapids and have worked or volunteered with church worship teams for over 10 years. I teach from my home in Grandville and am experienced in many different genres (folk, blues, jazz, rock, funk, etc.) and am able to teach basic music theory along with reading music charts and tabs. Whether you just want to learn basic chords and or would like to play in a band, I can help to get you there!

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.

Angel was excellent with our 6 yr. old Granddaughter beginner. She was a little apprehensive at the beginning, however Angel had the ability to put her at ease and by the end of the session, she was very comfortable. We highly recommend Angel for his professionalism and teaching ability. She is very anxious for the next lesson!

About Joseph
I am first and forever a musician and I want to inspire the love of learning and playing music within all those I encounter. I have a degree in Musical Theatre from Western Carolina University, and I've been diligently studying music since I was a child. From me, you will learn multiple styles and work with both written music and music played by ear. I expect a great deal from my students and I hope they expect the same from me.

If music be the food of love, PLAY ON!

About Hannah
Hello! I look forward to meeting you and your child! I'd love to do introductions in person, but let me tell you a few things about me: 

I am a Michigan-born twenty-something who recently got married. Before moving to Kentwood to live with my husband, I taught piano at Marshall Music in Kalamazoo and was an Administrative Assistant at a local church for about 4 years. Before that I received my Bachelors in Business Administration and a Minor in Music at Indiana Wesleyan University. I was homeschooled all the way from Kindergarten to 12th grade and graduated with my other homeschool friends. 

I took piano lessons for about 20 years and learned a several things from my amazingly talented teachers. Here are a few: one, develop a relationship with your student by having conversations about everyday life, two, have a great structured rew
ard system for students who practice, and three, ALWAYS have fun. 

There are a few things on the side that I like to do or have done in the past (this information might be useful to tell your son or daughter). I was a very busy homeschool student. Sports were very important to me growing up, I did softball, volleyball and soccer. I also was highly involved in performing arts. I currently enjoy doing crafts like sewing, card making, refinishing furniture, and cooking/baking. I am also a pet lover! 

I can't wait to learn more about you at our first lesson.

Excelente teacher who taught my son four years. He did not know anything when he got started and Hannah taught him to play the piano and to love music. He is loving it so much that now he plays the piano an also trombone in band too, thanks to Hannah. She is such a great teacher that I ended up taking clases too and I am loving it. She makes it really fun.

Hannah is a very sweet and patient young lady. I took piano lessons from her a few years ago. I didn't know how to read music and had never played before. At age 60 it was one of the things I wanted to accomplish on my bucket list. She helped me achieve that.
I highly recommend her for anyone. Young or old!

Some start optimistically young, others driven by passion start much later in life, but when is the right time to start violin lessons? Like any other form of art, there’s simply no black or white when it comes to exploring music. The right time to start can’t be measured exclusively by age. Some ambitious parents start their kids at the age of two, and while many go off to become YouTube sensations, a whole lot more tend to give up by the age of five. So what should you consider before diving
Proper Singing Posture - What You Need to Know
Before you learn how to breathe, sing, or play any kind of instrument correctly, you need to ensure that you're creating the proper posture with your body.

This starts with proper singing posture, enhanced by correct breathing techniques, and then furt
