My 7-year old daughter has had three lessons with Kelly so far and we are very happy and will continue having more. Kelly is a real professional and is great with kids. She has already helped my daughter hear the difference of being on and off pitch. My daughter feels really proud and has been sharing what she learns from Kelly with her whole second grade class. I highly recommend Kelly!

Kelly was the best voice teacher a girl could ask for! She was not just my voice teacher but more like a friend. She always new what songs to choose and I always loved them. She is so sweet and nice but at the same time knows how to get the job done. She will always be my favorite voice teacher and will always be. She is so sweet and nice and will always hold a special place in my heart.

I have had numerous vocal instructors in my life. Yet none have been like Kelly Dunn. Not only was I able to choose what genre of music I would like to work on, and put in input on what songs or pieces I wanted to improve on, but she also pushed me to do my best and grow. First working with Kelly I focused on the musical theatre genre, yet as time when on, I was able to work on opera pieces and even jazz also. She pushed me out of my comfort zone allowing me to grow and expand my own potential. Not only did she coach me on specific songs but also aided me in learning to read music, and taught me techniques I hadn't known before. Not only is she talented and able to teach well, but she is very kind and extremely patient, and willing to walk step by step with you, using different teaching techniques and tips to better aid you. First starting lessons, I did not know her well, and was even nervous, but she made me feel comfortable right away, and now even years later I call her and ask her questions on my latest audition or voice techniques. She is by far the best instructor I have ever had, and has helped me grow more than I thought was possible. I would highly recommend Kelly Dunn as vocal instructor and coach, as she has taught me more than I could have hoped.

Kelly is a great instructor with energy that never ends! In every lesson I took with her, she focused all of her positive energy on me and improving my skills in a professional, tactful way. She has a way of explaining techniques that is just easy to understand and implement, allowing your learning experience to be fun, useful, and healthy for your voice. Kelly is a great match for anyone looking for a bright, amiable, talented, and professional instructor!

Kelly has such a great way of bringing out the best in each of her students. I personally can say that with simply one or two lessons I saw growth in ways I felt were nearly impossible. She also encourages and lifts up each of her students. I would highly recommend if you want a voice coach who not only is interested in vocal growth and health, but also in you as a person.

Kelly brings West Coast tranquility to New York City. She is a passionate teacher and devoted to producing the best results from her students. She doesn't have the rat race mentality, like most in the Big Apple, and isn't afraid to take her time growing and developing, both as an artist and teacher. As her mentor/director, I saw how eager Kelly was in learning and striving towards bettering herself. She's a thinker and a doer; a beautiful soul.

Kelly has helped me improve so much as a singer and performer while also creating a tight bond with me. In lessons she knew how to push me and bring my best out. I am so thankful for taking lessons with her and also getting to know her as a wonderful person.

Kelly was absolutely phenomal as a vocal coach. I came to her as a beginner and grew exponentially through the year I worked with her. She has a kind and true heart and gives her all to her students.
