​"Kelly’s professionalism, knowledge and sheer talent make her a perfect voice teacher...Kelly is extremely reliable and conducts a professional and challenging voice lesson...She has a great deal of voice and stage experience herself that she brings to her teaching. Her personality offers a great combination of rapport with the student and rigor in her training...Kelly is not only an excellent teacher and performer, but an excellent mentor and role model as well."

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching voice for musical theatre. I incorporate acting into the lessons as the students need or interest arises.

My lessons with Kelly were the highlight of my week. She always made me feel comfortable and supported, which gave me the security I needed to progress. Kelly put in the extra effort to find music that I enjoyed singing and songs that would help me stand out in an audition. I highly recommend her as a teacher!!

Easy to sign up and Great customer service

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor.

Jennifer is kind, patient, and extremely talented. The lessons are in her beautiful and quiet home. She starts the lessons without wasting any time and jumps right into teaching. I wish I had found her a lot earlier and I highly recommend her for anybody who is serious about improving their voice. If you are serious and would like to find a kind, talented and professional music instructor, look no more.
