Kelly C. Whitmore Lake, MI

I have been teaching beginning and intermediate piano to students, ages 9 and up, since 1991. I primarily use the Faber, "Piano Adventures" series, but do work with those who want to focus more on playing by chords.

About Kelly

Greetings! My name is Kelly and I have been teaching voice and piano since 1991.

My training in voice/singing/performance/Voice Movement Therapy has been extensive and multi-faceted as has my own performance experience. This has enabled me to successfully guide/mentor students who are not only singers of classical, musical theater, pop, folk, and jazz, but also people who use their speaking voices to teach, present and act.

My teaching approach is more holistic in that it not only addresses the technical and physical influences that affect the singing/speaking process, but also the emotional and psychological influences.

I work with ANYONE who wishes to vocally express themselves more freely and authentically, including those who consider themselves to be tone-deaf.

Kelly is a very supportive, knowledgeable, fun and gentle singing coach/teacher. She has many talents and a diverse background which allows her to work with students in a very comprehensive and holistic way. I have worked with other singing teachers and Kelly's working knowledge of the physical body far exceeds my previous teachers. I really enjoy taking lessons with Kelly.

In my two year of working with Kelly I've gone from fragile, terrified whisper-singing to singing alone with clear tone and pitch, a Capella, at an open mic. I still have barriers, but with Kelly's encouragement and advice I've learned to recognize their cause, and I've also knocked many down---I have a set of tools to draw on when my nerves start taking over, and I owe this to working with Kelly and her holistic approach to voice training. Kelly is patient with all levels of ability and purpose, and can deal with multiple aspects of training, from emotional barriers to technical challenges.

I first met Kelly through her Ann Arbor Rec and Ed ‘fundamentals of singing’ class, and a few of us enjoyed the experience so much we decided to continue and take classes as a group with Kelly. I was interested in singing not so much to be ‘good’ as to learn and practice enough to really enjoy singing more again, with an eye to possibly joining a chorus. I’d loved to sing with family or friends in my youth but had little opportunity left to do it. I was petrified of performing, and though I thought I could more or less stay in tune, I didn't think I really had much of a voice behind it.

Kelly knows her stuff technically, she really does, but just as important she knows how to bring out the best in her students. She makes everyone comfortable and is always positive, open, and encouraging, as well as being delightful person to be around! When we first worked with Kelly, all of us were nervous about anything resembling performance, but the supportive atmosphere she creates, and techniques she taught us combined to help us feel at ease singing in front of each other, and eventually audiences – taking measured risks and all the while trying to tamp down our internal critics… I think we have all learned both how to unlock to our own authentic voice and personality in performance, but also to tap into alternate personas in order to deliver all kinds of songs – without any pressure to be ‘right’ or perfect technically, but just to use technique as one piece of the puzzle. She is also very skilled at being able to pinpoint trouble spots, and communicate ways to work around or through issues in very practical terms though too, and suggests useful and personalized exercises for homework. She also guided us tremendously well in group singing and harmony.

Amy C. Ann Arbor, MI

I specialize in teaching beginner-intermediate piano. A solid base is SO IMPORTANT if one expects to grow and eventually play more advanced pieces. I pride myself on being incredibly thorough, making sure that each student understands every concept in a piece (counting, notes, technique, tempo markings, etc.) before moving on. A solid base is key to future success!

About Amy

Are you interested in learning piano, or do you have a child who is? I can't wait to help you turn this desire into reality! After taking piano lessons for twelve years, and teaching for three, I am seeking more students. I specialize in working with young children (5-10 age range)--I've worked with kids for most of my life, and I understand what it takes to keep them engaged and attentive. I remember only too well the boredom of piano lessons when I was a child, therefore I work to keep things moving and changing throughout the lesson. I have high expectations, but when my students work hard, I am proud and so are they!

Each week, for my young students, I offer prize-incentives when they practice at least four times per week. As a reward for hard work, they get to pick an ...
