About Me

Jalynda Smith - Piano Teacher

My name is Jalynda Smith and I am a professional piano teacher with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Western Michigan University. My teaching career began in Battle Creek, MI as a private instructor and I now also teach in Kalamazoo, Richland, and other surrounding areas. 


I have taught piano lessons at Marshall's Music Co. and at Spring Valley Elementary School in partnership with the Gilmore Piano Education Program. I have previously participated in WMU’s Marching Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Collegiate Singers. 

Music has always been a part of my life and I've loved playing the piano for as long as I can remember. After learning how read books, I was determined to learn how to read music as well. Sharing my love and knowledge of music with students is one of my greatest joys. All of my experience is the foundation for my teaching methods with adaptable pedagogy for students looking either to start something fun or to build a musical career.
