MEET THE TEAM:
Get to know us! We’re proud to be a part of the fine music education that you provide to your students, and encourage you to get acquainted with the new SDC team.
Jodi has had music in her life since she can remember. Starting with vivid memories of learning where “Middle C” was at the age of three and plucking out “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” by ear. Throughout the years she has dabbled with a variety of instruments including violin, piano, and tuba. Mostly, she found her excellence in vocal performance and has performed in a variety of ensembles and venues from National choirs to small jazz groups and the musical theater stage.
Professionally, Jodi has 15 years of corporate finance experience and enjoys the detective work in getting to the root of issues. She was happy to make the move to bring music back to her day-to-day life and is proud to lead this knowledgeable and wonderful team!
Mitch began playing music at a young age and continues to play and perform. Playing in his high school jazz band and other small groups, he set his sights on an education in music. He received an Associate’s degree in Studio Production Engineering from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. After finding he enjoys helping others with musical needs, he soon found a perfect fit with Schmitt Music as a sales associate. Mitch’s expertise led him to become an Accessory and Print specialist on the SDC team.
Away from the office, Mitch enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, their two cats, and cooking in his much too small kitchen. Grateful for the musical gift his parents gave him, Mitch continues to help new and experienced musicians with their musical needs.
Grace Maunula has been a musician since she began piano lessons at the age of 5. Throughout her life, she has also learned to play the violin, viola, and accordion. After graduating with a degree in Theory, Composition, and Conducting from Bethany Lutheran College, she moved to the Twin Cities area and began work at Schmitt Music, and also directs the choir and handbell choir at a local church. She is currently earning her M.M. in Music Education and enjoys working with music professionals to get the materials that they need.
In her spare time, she enjoys writing music, sewing, and spending quality time with her dog and her husband.
Loren Keller officially began his musical journey in 5th grade with the violin, but cannot remember a time where music has not been in his life. He was influenced by a variety of musical genres growing up, including the likes of Irish bands, symphonies, and most concerts on public television. Loren grew up locally, performing with his high school orchestra and fiddle ensemble. He then went on to receive his Associate of Fine Arts in Music, violin emphasis, from North Hennepin Community College where he performed with the community orchestra, and helped form the college’s first string quartet. While working as a paraprofessional in a local school district for five years, Loren has developed his own music studio, teaching predominantly violin. In late 2020 he came to Schmitt Music to share his passion for music with each and every customer. He is happy to be in a position to get instruments into the hands of young performers so they, too, can discover the joy of music!
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you!
