About Zach
Hello! I'm a full-time private music teacher, and anyone who knows me knows that teaching music is my passion in life! Although I work with students of any age, I'm sort of a specialist in giving young beginners (ages 4+) a fun, easy, happy and successful start on violin, viola, cello, guitar and piano! This year I launched a set of virtual music courses for the Hamilton and Niles school districts here in West Michigan, and I like to use these courses with my private students to supplement their learning and practice between lessons. Please reach out with any questions you might have and I’ll get back to you right away! Thank you! ♬

Zoe felt comfortable and enjoyed the lesson. Zach was able to help us figure out how to get the instrument back in tune after moving to a new climate. The online format worked great.

Emma is delighted with her first lesson. I needed to insist on putting her violin down to sit down and finish her school work. She is home schooled. Love the way he teaches. Very clear lessons.

About Joel
I have been playing the drums for nearly 20 years, in which most of my experience is hands-on, playing in contemporary church worship teams and regional Christian rock bands with occasional teaching mixed in. Personally, my favorite style of music to play is rock/alternative but I also favor acoustic/folk styles, funky grooves, Latino rhythms, and the occasional metal, blues, or jazz beats.

No matter the musical style, playing with confidence, feeling the song, and having an awareness of other musicians can escalate you from a "good" drummer to a "great!" one; and this is what I teach my students. They will learn the fundamentals of stick position, rotary movements, basic drum hits and musical notation, as well as how to play on beat (with a "click"). These skills will enable the student to learn any style of music and increase their abi
lity to play the role of the drummer in virtually any band or musical group.

For example, the bands I have played in over the years have opened for multiple National acts like Red, Disciple, Project 86, and Decyfer Down and have played festivals and tours like Cornerstone Festival, Unity Festival, and Winter Jam, opening for Mercy Me, Jars of Clay, and Hawk Nelson. I truly believe that if you know your craft and have confidence in yourself, the sky is the limit for what you can do.

Currently, I play regularly at my local church and do worship nights and events in my area. I would be honored and pleased to work with you and help you become a great drummer!

I’ve not had lessons from Joel, but I have attended several events in which he was drumming. One of THE best drummers I have ever heard! Whether you’re just starting out or have been playing for a while I have no doubt Joel will help you improve your drumming skill.

About Katie
I love to inspire students to practice, that is where the real magic happens. I love to see them not only set goals for themselves but reach them. I am willing to do whatever it takes to see them succeed. I love working with people and encouraging them. I have been a horn player since August 2007. I am studying french horn at Grand Valley State University but am also efficient in euphonium, piano, music theory, aural (reading rhythms and reciting them aloud), and trumpet. I have been in marching band for 6 years on mellophone so I can also help with teaching marching techniques and mellophone playing since it is very different from french horn.

About David
My teaching style comes from listening to the direction you want to take music in your life. I learn what your goals are, and I create an individualized lesson plan that involves the desires of the apprentice musician while also including the necessary skills for growing from where you are.

More important than the advanced techniques I can teach in specific genres, I will bring foundational concepts and imperative insight when listening to any song for a play-a-long. I can show you how to break down musical components and hear parts, pick out the notes, and learn everything you need to bring the music you love to life. My goal with each lesson is to leave a student feeling empowered and inspired with the right things at the right times. Music is a journey, and that's an experience that can't be rushed.

I can relate to a lot of pro
blems that you might be having. I’ve been there before, and can help you through each challenge you face. My students will be heard, and focus will be brought to the root cause of the things you want to improve. Then we will work together to form solutions.

Through these opportunities to make playing fun, I will show you how easy it is to practice the songs you want to play so that they come out sounding how they really should. It will suddenly become easy to fill the gaps in every half-right tab and find the chords by ear as you listen and play along.

You will find elements of the bigger picture coming together in ways you may not have expected. Since music is constantly expanding our own limitations, there is always more we can achieve with it! The path from listener to musician to artist becomes walk-able at your own pace.
