Kelly C. Whitmore Lake, MI

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. While ...

I have taken two classes with Kelly through Ann Arbor Rec&Ed and both were great experiences. Kelly is a patient, kind, and fun teacher. She did an excellent job going over the fundamentals, and I learned a great deal in both of her classes. I especially appreciated the helpful feedback she gave me--it definitely made me more aware of those areas I need to work on. I would highly recommend her.

Singing · In studio
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.

Singing · In studio
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.

Andrea W. Jackson, MI

About Andrea

I am an up and coming teacher in the Jackson area. Being younger has given me a great insight to music that is popular and up and coming. I enjoy teaching all styles and genres! I believe that you have to have fun and be invested in lessons to get the most out of them. I do believe that learning is limitless and no matter what your age or skill set, you can become a musician. All of my students learn and understand basic theory and how to read music. I encourage my students to try something new and to be fearless. I host annual recitals that students participate in and believe in quality music. I graduated from Jackson College in 2014 and have attended Eastern Michigan University. If you are looking for a fun learning environment that will challenge you to be the best you can be, then ...
