Kelly is a fantastic teacher! I have taken piano lessons before, but it was very difficult for me to understand. Kelly communicates very clearly and I improved so much under her. It's easy to tell that she is very dedicated and passionate to the instrument. She truly wants her students to understand and is receptive to what works and doesn't work for me. She taylors her way of teaching to fit what helps me improve the most. I highly recommend Kelly; her additude, patience, and seeing how much I have improved makes me excited to learn piano!
I’ve known Kelly for about ten years and she has a great depth of knowledge and experience. Had a teacher yell at you or give you a “look” when you make a mistake? No worries here! She’s very patient and easy to approach so students can feel comfortable with asking even the dumbest questions. Kelly is also extremely passionate about music and will infect her students with a similar appreciation for the genre so if you ever needed another music aficionado to hang around, you’ve found the right person. I can’t rave about her enough!
