Kelly is an experienced musician and teacher hailing from the Los Angeles area. It is her strong belief that learning music dramatically effects mental ability in other non-musical areas and that everyone has the ability to succeed at learning an instrument. Kelly is a patient and fun flute teacher who has taught students ranging from beginner to advanced levels.

Kelly graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Music degree in Flute Performance from California State University, Long Beach and is now pursuing her Master of Music degree in Classical Flute Performance at the Manhattan School of Music. She strongly believes in the value of scholarship and during her membership in the CSULB University Honors Program, she researched and wrote a 36-page thesis on American Impressionism. While teaching her studio of bright students in the LA area, Kelly had the honor of playing with distinguished groups such as the American Youth Symphony and the Young Artists' Symphony Orchestra of LA.

Flute · In studio
Kelly is not only a fantastic teacher but is also an exceptionally talented flutist. She whole-heartedly is passionate about excelling in her own life which translates to high expectations for her students while maintaining a light-hearted learning environment, mirrored by her optimistic personality. She understands the inner mechanisms of teaching flute to people of any ages due to her excellent education and her extreme intelligence. I would sincerely recommend her to a flutist of any age or ability.
