Meet the Team
“We believe music instruction should be excellent, complete and fun! Whether music is a part of your child’s destiny, or you want to try and find out if it is, we would honor the opportunity to partner with you in your child’s music journey.” ~The Belliles
A natural coach, Kevin loves encouraging young people to be the best they can be. Kevin has also taught music for more than 20 years. He learned piano at a young age and then added guitar. Kevin honed his musical craft in Los Angeles at the Dick Grove School of Music, which helped to launch his writing, arranging, sound production and performance profession.
Kevin’s passion is to instill a love of worship to musicians, so they are not only able to play with excellence, but they are also able to play “with their hearts.”
Kevin grew up in the Des Moines area and received a degree in Elementary Education with a Director of Christian Education endorsement. He has been a full-time music minister, youth minister and part-time coach.
Kevin produced and arranged “Hymns of Grace” a CD and music book set sold to churches to enable worship teams to play traditional hymns in a contemporary way. He also founded, wrote songs, performed with and managed a Christian rock band which toured in several states. Kevin and Kellee have two wonderful children.
Kellee has taught music for more than 20 years, groups and individuals, in many different settings. She loves children and her passion is to teach students to perform AND love music through movement, rhythm instruments, games and fun songs.
