I am a singer/songwriter that has performed all over the country and I would love to share my expertise with you. 18 years experience performing and 5 years experience teaching.

I want to cater to whatever you are passionate about because I believe the best way to learn is to be excited about music!

Keria was a wonderful teacher for my daughter. She had the perfect balance of fun, skills, and encouragement-- even getting my daughter to practice, which is no small feat! I strongly recommend Keira as a music teacher for any child or adult.

Keira personalizes each lesson to fit the needs of the student. She's a fun and extremely positive teacher but also maintains a professional attitude and stays focused on the student and the lesson. Keira has helped me gain more control over my voice and I am a more confident singer and musician thanks to her.
