Joseph McCauley – Piano, Band, Voice, Performance, Music Theory & More..

Joseph is a native of the Grand Forks area with surplus of musical experience and is excited to share it with our community. From teaching to performing, recording, and composing, as well as skills in instrumental sales, service and repairs, his unique diversity is a tremendous asset to our region and we are very pleased to have him here at Kenny’s Music. In 2009 Joseph earned his Bachelors of Arts Degree in Vocal and Saxophone Performance with a focus in Music Education and Pedagogy from the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND. He has been teaching privately for 11 years in the areas of piano, band, voice, orchestral strings, guitar, bass and percussion, and takes students of any age. His teaching philosophy is to begin from a basis of proper posture and relaxed warm up, combined with guided technique and music theory. From there, with enhanced ability and comfort, one can go anywhere they wish and their joy of music is magnified profoundly!!
“If you can walk, you can dance, if you can talk you can sing, and if you can type or text you can play!!!”
It’s never too late to improve or pick up something new and try it!
