About Elizabeth

*Only Available for lessons before 3PM- ALL TIMES AFTER 3PM ARE FULL*

2016 Joan Frey Boytim Independent Voice Teacher Award Winner!

I am a professional singer living in Grand Rapids, MI with a
passion for teaching. My goal is to help my students become good musicians while sharing the joy and love of music with them. I have a Bachelor of Music from Grand Valley State University in Vocal Performance and a Master of Music from the Chicago College of Performing Arts in Voice Performance. From humble beginnings, I have maintained a busy studio since 2011. Since then, I have helped dozens of students excel and grow as singers several of whom have gone on to study music in college.

I hold membership in the National Association of Teachers of Singing, Sigma Alpha Iota and Michigan School Vocal Music Association. Through these organizations, my students have the opportunity to perform and be adjudicated by other music professionals, they also have the opportunity to compete for scholarships.

**** Due to time constraints and construction traffic in Grand Rapids, I do not offer lessons from your home ****

~What can you expect in our lessons?~

I strive to help my students become independent musicians as well as more confident singers. We work diligently to create healthy, well supported sounds. Whether we are working on classical music or pop music, it is all rooted in the same techniques. I emphasize proper breathing, support, posture, resonance, clarity, pure tone, power without pushing, and building vocal range.

We will always start by warming up. I use exercises designed to target the specific areas I've outlined above. From there, we will work on building technical skills based on the students need and skills.

My young singers (under 6th grade) will use the book "Singing Lessons for Little Singers" in their lessons.

Please note:

***We will not work on songs until the student is comfortable reading basic solfege melodies.***

We will work extensively on the use of solfege until the student is comfortable reading music. This can take a month or more depending the students abilities and practice habits.

After the student is comfortable with solfege and reading music, we will find repertoire that will provide appropriate challenges and opportunities for both growth and success. I always welcome input from students for styles they would like to sing.

I especially love working with beginning students helping them build their technique, learn about music, and find their voice. Some of my most successful students have had no experience singing before taking voice lessons.

~What styles will we work on?~

My training has been centered in classical music but I also am an avid lover of Jazz, Musical Theater, and Singer/Song Writer, Folk, and Pop music.

~Lessons in my studio~

I have an electric keyboard, computer with printer, and a sitting area for parents to observe while their children are working and learning. My studio is also pet-free.

Individualized lesson is on point. Incorporates the student personal goals, but challenges them to get out if their comfort zone.

Kelsey P.

Grand Rapids, MI

About Kelsey

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!

I am 62. About 2 years ago I started singing karaoke when we go out with our friends on Saturday nights. My voice needs a lot of help, so I am very limited to what I can sing, and what I do sing is just okay.
Kelsey is patient, and as part of my lesson, i was to list songs as part of my goal. She picked out a couple of them for me to work on to improve my overall singing. Each week she would pick out areas of the song and tell me what I need to do to umprove on it. I have quite a ways to go, lots of bad habits to correct, but I have been able to apply what I have learned so far to songs that I have already been doing and to other songs that I wouldnt have considered before I started 3 1/2 months ago.
Kelsey is a great teacher, and I really look forward to my lessons.

David is the definition of professional. His trumpet knowledge and ability to help me improve in lessons week to week has been beyond beneficial. His talents extend much further than the trumpet and that aids in the lesson experience as a whole.

Do Singers Need Metronomes?
As a vocalist, should you practice singing with a metronome at your side? Read on for St. Augustine, FL teacher Heather L.'s advice...    Metronomes are devices that produce sounds in regular, pre-chosen rhythms. Many years ago, the only metronomes were simple gadgets. Though the first one that's even similar to what we now think of as a "modern" metronome was invented in the 19th century, the kind that most adults are familiar with is a mechanical, wind-up metronome.

5 Hard Songs to Sing - and the Exercises to Master Them
Ask any experienced vocalist for a list of what they consider to be hard songs to sing, and they can probably provide you with five or six examples without much thought.  However, there are as many examples as there are different voices, and every individual singer will have individual vocal hurdles to overcome with their repertoire. On the other hand, it is possible to identify a few examples across a few genres where a majority will agree that, yes, those are hard songs to sing. Here are five
