Hi! My name is Kallie and I have been teaching piano, flute, voice and acting for 8 years. I am very passionate about teaching and music. I am a singer/songwriter with 2 CD's on iTunes and I have been involved in children theater for 7 years appearing in12 shows such as Annie, Seussical the Musical and Snow White. I am also a member of ASCAP and TAXI. I love to share my joy of music with all who will listen. Children are my specialty but I welcome students of all ages.
*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in a fun and stimulating lesson time with my student. For piano and flute I love to play ear-training games and many activities to wake up the musical imagination. All of my activities are geared for the specific age of the student. For voice I cover all styles from Broadway to country from classical to jazz. I believe that every student has their own speed of learning and I try to accommodate them. And last but not least for acting we will work on everything such as monologues, stage directing, costumes and audition facts. I do help students prepare for auditions as well. I hold 2 recitals a year for every level of students to participate. Also twice a year I hold a music ear-training workshop for all of my students.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has an amp, a microphone, and an upright piano set up in the living room. Has plenty of space for parents and siblings to sit and relax during the lessons
*** Specialties ***
I love to use games and activities to engage my younger students. I also have them study a different composer each month. I teach my students about all music and how to identify musical styles and instruments. Composition and improvising is another method I stress with my students.
Kallie has really connected with our 5 year-old son and he loves his lessons. She uses great teaching methods to keep a young child focused and we are very happy with his progress! We are extremely happy with Kallie and highly recommend her!
