Jossué Williams

Basic Guitar

Toronto-North York


Growing up in a country where salsa is really popular, as a kid Jossué used to be fascinated by realizing how many different sounds can be executed and assembled to produce a single melody. He's not a kid anymore but still feels the same fascination, specially for guitars. He's been playing since he was 14 years old, and has played different styles with different musicians. He finds teaching very rewarding - but learning is even more so. 



Grace Valera

Vocal 

Brampton


Grace was born into a musical family, learning how to sing at the age of 2 and starting guitar around age 14. Born in Toronto and raised in Brampton, she has played an array of different instruments ranging from the flute to the cajon. In order to widen her musical experience, Grace has played in school orchestras, various cover bands, and church choirs, where she credits most of her influence, being an emerging leader in the St. Jerome 1030 choir. 

Grace's musical influences range anywhere from Five Finger Death Punch to Kendrick Lamar, and she has often cited musicals like La La Land, Rent, and Amadeus as her favourite movies of all time. As an aspiring songwriter, she is heavily influenced by the music of Frank Turner, Tori Kelly, and Dallas Green. 

Grace holds a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from York University, but manages to incorporate her knowledge into her teaching. She hopes that by helping students connect with their feelings, and by learning to appreciate the value of music, they won't just become better musicians, but better individuals as a whole.
