I just love watching as you emerge and find your true voice and self.

I love working with Aria! She is an excellent teacher. She worked with me on classical repertoire in Italian, German, French and English. Sbe helped me prepare for performances, scholarship competitions, program auditions, and my college auditions. She is knowledgable, patient, understanding and always willing to find time to help. She's great!
Jamie
Dr Thome is an excellent teacher. She not only loves music, but understands it. She is quite talented at sharing that knowledge with her students, helping them to grow musically. She is great with scheduling--accommodating extra lessons as necessary and able. Her work with my daughter is stellar. Aria helped her prepare for multiple auditions, performances and her conservatory auditions. I highly recommend her.
Angela
Aria is a joy, a light, and an overall wonderful human being. She is knowledgeable and makes singing a wonderful experience. She helped me prepare for my St. Louis Muny audition and I could tell that my technique and overall confidence improved. I was very pleased with my audition (that’s big for someone who is very self-critical). I also had the pleasure of learning various choral arrangements and catholic hymns and performed them with Aria as my accompanist for weddings. It was a wonderful experience.

I take a holistic approach to teaching voice. When you sing, your entire body is your instrument, which means that you have to be attuned to your whole body to produce the healthiest, most organic sound. I've been teaching for 13 years, and in that time I've leaned lots of different methodologies. I use a combination of knowledge from my classical training in conjunction with yoga, mindfulness and real world experience to give my students the best path forward in their musical journey. Whether you're just starting out or already a working professional, with my guidance and teaching you'll be making healthier and freer sounds.

I am passionate about connecting students to their own unique voice through discovering the relationship between the body, the brain, vocal discipline, and personal expression. I work on creating a resonant and freely produced sound throughout all the registers. My goal is to promote healthy vocal technique while having full engagement in a song. I believe that singing is not only learning the right notes and words while delivering a lovely sound: singing is conveying your emotion, your engagement, and your character’s situation to the audience. Once your voice is lined up with great technique, your “own” true voice will begin to surface with an increased vocal range, resonance, and heightened flexibility between notes. You will explore who YOU are as a singer and discover what repertoire works best for you. I also emphasize working through the actor’s process, so she can fully prepare you for any audition or performance.

My son had such a blast at his first lesson. Thank you Kelly for making him feel so at ease! Your beautiful voice and obvious love of music, your teaching technics and your openness to my son's needs hooked him in :) He cannot wait for his next lesson. See you soon!
Christine Cullin
Kelly is a fantastic teacher who we would recommend without hesitation. Kelly partners the dynamics of voice, proper breathing techniques and performing skills to make sure her students reach their full potential. While working with her, my daughter has built a diverse repertoire of performance pieces, expanded her range and learned a solid foundation of voice instruction. Her fun and dynamic lessons would benefit singers of any level.

In our first few lessons, we worked on solidifying some basic fundamentals of singing (proper breathing, posture, etc.) and have since moved on to some simple songs/arias. She is a wonderful teacher for beginners like me, but with her skill level, I can see her as being an exceptional teacher for more advanced students as well."

Practice Tips: Vocal Warm-Ups & Technique

Structuring your vocal warm-ups and practice between lessons can make a huge impact on your success. Here, Bloomfield, NJ teacher Zachary B. shares some helpful tips... In my experience, many students make progress during a lesson and often return to the next lesson with the new skills forgotten. Merely practicing songs, without specific structure usually leads to singing the song repeatedly. While this does familiarize you with the song, it does not help you improve from a technical st …
