She understands there are many routes to learning music and wants to teach the way you want to learn. Begin your journey with a method book; study your favorite artists; learn how to create songs; discover improvising (this does not exclusively apply to jazz!); become a better sight reader; learn from the classics; learn from Hip-Hop; you get the idea.

A look at one of my compositions!
My student came dressed as a unicorn, so of course, we had to make up a song about them! This was the result :D
A little jazz voice plus jazz piano featuring one of my favorite standards -- Fats Waller's "Ain't Misbehavin'"

Callie is very approachable, and as someone with little musical experience has been great to work with. She breaks things down and gives useful and understandable advice.

Calee has been so helpful already in my short two months that I’ve been taking lessons. She makes things easy to learn and has a great, positive attitude. She’ll give you assignments and practice pieces that will challenge you, but also lets you go totally your own pace. Would 10/10 recommend!

As a young adult, complete novice to learning piano, I really appreciated Calee's approach to learning the basics while keeping it fun and relaxed. She's comfortable to work with and will go at your speed while pushing you to learn more in a gentle and professional manner. She has patience and a welcoming demeanor which makes learning to play enjoyable and a reprieve from the daily grind. She's very respectful of my time and scheduling and easy to get ahold of.
I have had nothing but a good experience with Calee. Highly recommended to other busy adults who want to learn a new hobby :)

Calee is AWESOME! I found her online and I’m so glad I did! I had never taken voice lessons and my experience with her has been fantastic. The newly renovated space she teaches in is really great. In the few months I have been taking lessons I have really seen such tremendous growth. She is well versed in so many areas and really does a great job explaining techniques in ways that are attainable and understandable. I cannot recommend her enough!

I loved working with Calee. She taught me at a pace that worked well for me. I now can harmonize and never could before very well at least! Thanks!

Calee has been amazing with my 7 year old. She's fun and great with kids. Let's her pick out favorite songs to sing while still teaching fundamentals of voice. It's something she really looks forward to each week.

Calee brings an immense amount of passion to her instruction, alongside her wealth of knowledge. She has a very diverse background which takes her instruction to a level that many instructors aren't able to reach.

I'd highly recommend Calee for anything from vocal instruction, to piano, to theory and composition.
