About Kayla K.

I am a professional singer, pianist, guitar player, and have vast experience in the recording industry and traveling abroad for music performance. I graduated from Lee University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, specifically voice, and a Masters in Music, specifically gospel arrangements and church music. I have experience in choral settings, classical, contemporary, gospel, R&B, and pop music.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre, tone, and skill level. I teach students the proper technique of building strong vocal chords for long-term health, releasing tension build-up, and applying foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help my students sing with freedom, confidence, passion, and expression. Whether you are preparing for a degree in music at a university or just want to become a better singer, I can help you attain those goals!

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical and contemporary piano for 7 years. I can teach students to read music and also play by ear. They can learn and play a variety of genres by using chord sheets, piano sheet music, or both depending on the preference of the student. I also help them gain an understanding of the theory of music so that they can build on their foundational skills and open up a world of creativity!

I teach guitar students of all different ages and experience levels. I have guitar professionally for over 10 years. I can teach students to read music and play by ear. They can learn to pay chord charts, rhythm, jazz, pop, country, contemporary, worship, and some beginner lead. I also help them gain an understanding of the theory of guitar so that they can build on their own foundational skills.

As a professional recording artist, I have recorded and collaborated on 5 albums. Performed alongside well-known musicians, including the President of the United States at the 2012 Presidential Inauguration.
Ministered in Indonesia and Singapore Summer of 2013 with Lee Singers for the Empower 21 International Conference for the COG. Performed in Vatican City in St. Peter’s Basilica/Cathedral in Italy May 2015 with Lee Singers and much more.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better musician!

I am a professional peer, and fellow guitar instructor. Having known Kayla for the last several years, I have seen how her simple, yet masterfully thorough approach to instruction can excite and entertain students of all ages.

Kayla uses her collegiate level music theory and performance background to educate on a plethora of subjects. However, she clearly communicates beneficial concepts to both children and adults alike.

I highly recommend Kayla both as a peer, and a student. I’ve benefited from her wisdom, and insight throughout the years, and I know you will too.

The vocal lessons with Kayla are very good. She always tried to respond to the clients levels and preferences. It is not always easy to use your own voice like you want to, but Kayla has a bunch of really good tipps for you.
Funny, honest and definitely skilled teacher. Highly recommended!

Kayla is so personable, and truly takes the time to make her students feel encouraged. She teaches on my level, and I’m never afraid to ask for extra guidance, Because of her patience and dedication to the craft, I know I’ll be where I’ve always wanted to be in no time! I’m so glad I found Takelessons, as well as the best teacher.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking piano with Kayla for a couple of months now. She is very good with kids, teaches in a way that's easy for my daughter to understand and has been very flexible with us. My daughter has been sick once or twice or quarantined because of exposure at school and Kayla was very accommodating of schedule changes and working with us to make up lessons if needed. Great instructor!
