Overview

I love singing! I've been singing for as long as I can remember, and I've been creating songs and playing guitar since shortly after that. I have a Bachelor's in Music from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI and I have been a full time working musician for two and a half years.

After graduating, I worked for two years at Baker College in Owosso, MI as a tutor for English and Math in the school library and eventually started teaching a basic English class. During these years I developed a passion for teaching. I love helping students discover skills they never thought they had, and helping them develop those skills so they can become even better. Whether I'm teaching Singing, Performance, Songwriting, I strive to find ways to help each student achieve their goals.

Let's set big goals and achieve big dreams together!

My daughter was apprehensive about taking lessons but Kelsey has been the perfect teacher for her. Kelsey makes her feel very comfortable and as a result my daughter has learned so much in such a short amount of time.

Singing
Voice Lessons are ALWAYS Fun!

I first met Kelsey at a house show. I was interested in her singing style and when I learned that she offered voice lessons I was eager to try them out. A couple months later we met up for the first time and started the process. I had never taken voice lessons but Kelsey remained patient and encouraging. Since then I have grown not only vocally but in singing technique as well. I have learned quite a bit and I find myself sporadically laughing from the many jokes or comments that Kelsey says which makes lessons fun.

I would definitely recommend Kelsey Pray to anyone wanting to stretch their vocal abilities and have fun while doing it.
