About Kelly

I am an experienced, patient teacher and classical pianist. I earned my Master of Music degree as a piano performance major at Combs’ College of Music in Philadelphia where I was awarded with a teaching fellowship and a scholarship. Upon graduating, I devoted many years to teaching piano and music education classes at various schools and colleges in the Northeast.

In 1999 I founded Walsh Piano Studio in Jupiter, Florida where I taught private piano lessons for sixteen years. My reputation as an expressive pianist and an exacting musician kept me very busy as a piano instructor. Aside from teaching and managing my studio, I wrote and was granted two United States patents for a music reading method I created. Today, I live in central Florida and am excited about teaching students online from all over the country. I specialize in the music education of adults and young adults.

Be best pianist you can be. I offer private lessons personalized just for you to address your specific challenges. Do you see yourself in any of these scenarios? Perhaps you play pretty well but just can’t seem to advance any further; you practice regularly but your pieces don’t seem to improve. Or perhaps you already play well, but want to strengthen your skills. I can show you how to phrase music for beautiful, lyrical playing and help you to acquire good piano technique to play difficult music with ease. Master precise control of your technique for artistic phrasing, thunderous fortissimos and exquisite pianissimos. Learn how to practice effectively. Discover methods that will help you make the most progress during your practice time.

I am an active member of the Music Teachers National Association and the Florida State Music Teachers Association. I am the author of a music reading textbook that is currently featured on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com. It was awarded with a Readers' Favorite medal for receiving their 5-star editorial review.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I believe I am qualified to teach English as a second language because I am a published author and also because I had to pass many exams on grammar and write countless papers in order to receive my master's degree. I have always had a love for literature and poetry and am an avid reader.
