Bio

Learning the fundamentals of playing guitar and developing the ability to read standard notation will benefit children tremendously whether they are interested in bluegrass, traditional, country, blues, jazz, rock, classical or any other style of music. My students will gain a strong background in essential areas and have fun!

Learning the fundamentals of playing guitar and developing the ability to read standard notation will benefit children tremendously whether they are interested in bluegrass, traditional, country, blues, jazz, rock, classical or any other style of music. My students will gain a strong background in essential areas and have fun!

I have been playing guitar since 2006 and mandolin since 1996, studying with a master musician. I use the Mel Bay Modern Guitar Method along with chord/strumming practice, emphasis on correct right and left hand technique, and exercises/songs tailored to the student's interests and abilities.

Just send a message to schedule a lesson. Currently, I am offering lessons at the student's home, at my apartment in East Greenbush, NY, or online. Due to Covid-19 safety concerns, for in person lessons I am happy to wear a mask and sit at a distance.

I have played various instruments including clarinet, piano, mandolin, and guitar over the past 24 years and have been teaching lessons for my primary instrument, guitar, for the last two years.

Knowledgeable, patient, and experienced tutor.

After a few questions Kelly went into the lesson right at my daughters level. Since my daughters level was that this was the first time she had held a guitar that was great! My daughter said that she loved her class with Kelly and felt motivated by Kelly's positive style of teaching. She left the session excited and wanting to learn more about guitar.
