About Kelly

My name is Kelly, most of my students call me Kelly or Ms. Kelly. I have a great passion for music as is evident by my 9 years of teaching experience in vocal music education. I have experience with all ages, from a 3 year old wanting to play the piano to a 60 yr old trying to regain her vocal range. Though my background is in classical voice I am well aware of the techniques that are most popular today. I have had students of all kinds, jazz, gospel, classical, theatre, R&B and much more. My specialty and focus is always on vocal health and range. It's more important to have a healthy voice than to it is to be able to sing higher or lower. Without good vocal health habits you will not have the endurance to improve at all, so it's number one in my book.

While I do not play the piano very well I have also tutored my fair share of piano students. I may not play well but I can tell when someone is not playing the proper way. I, myself, have gone through several years of piano training...it just is not for me. However I'm a huge fan of helping other student succeed and excel in the art!

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.

Ear Training

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I have a BA in music education. I also have approximately 6 years of experience doing ear training and sight singing with middle school and high school students. I never received lesson that a B on any of my ear training and sight singing courses during college.

ESL/ESOL

I am qualified to teach/tutor ESL because I have 9 years of teaching under my belt. Of those 9 years 3 were spent teaching literacy. I have recently completed my certification in TESOL and have spent a good amount of time volunteering at ESL centers. I love teaching and have made it my goal to bring literacy to all and the English language to any who learn.

Piano

I have a BA in music education. I have also received 4 years of piano lessons and performed at least that many recitals. I have approximately 5 yrs experience teaching piano in both private and classroom settings.

Voice (Music)

I have completed a BA in music education with a focus on voice. I have been a professional performer since 1995. I have 9 years experience teaching choral studies and 4 of those years was spent as the head of music studies. I have approximately 5 years experience with private vocal studies. I teach and perform a wide range of genres and am familiar with the techniques and skill that are required to execute each well.
