Piano – Band – Orchestra – 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!

Kevin Kalenze

Guitar – Bass – Ukulele

Greetings! I grew up in Grand Forks in a household full of music. Music was always in the air either being played or listened to. My father began teaching me guitar over thirty years ago and today I teach my own boys! I've worked doing everything from pouring concrete in NY to fishing in Alaska, but music has always been number one in my heart. My main goal is to bring fun through teaching as you discover your own musical path. Rock on!

Tanner Cruse

Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Drums, Music Software/Hardware

I began learning guitar around the age of 11 and my interest spiked from there. I learned guitar, bass, drums and vocals reaching genres including but not limited to rock, metal, blues, country, folk and more. I work at Kenny's Music in sales, service, online work and an instructor.  I also play guitar in Entropy and Town&Country here in Grand Forks. I previously worked at a youth center for 5 years driving the music program and open mic night for the youth members and playing gigs on the weekends and have been non stop playing and learning ever since.
I welcome everyone to learn their first chords or sharpen the skills you already have!
I teach the basics of guitar theory to shape your habits and knowledge early on so you can explore theory as you progress. My primary focus is helping new players and experienced players shape their techniques on the fretboard.
