We had our 1st lesson with Kelly. She was very kind, patient & knowledgeable. My 6 year old enjoyed the class- she kept it fun for her. So far, I would recommend her!

I wanted to play piano and Kelly is a great teacher to work with. She's definetly helps understand the basics in piano music theory. I have a better learning in scales, triads & chords, notes, and key signatures. Great Job! Keep up the good work!

I love my professor. I think it's an amazing opportunity for kids and adults to get a chance to learn voice and piano lessons with Kelly. She's an amazing vocalist and I like how she shows the voice techniques of using the diaphragm. It really helps. Also she's a great pianist and I like how she teaches the importance in ear training, music theory and it's history. She's Great!! Good Job and Thank you!

We hired Kelly to teach 3 of our children. We paid for 5 lessons each. We got almost 3. She showed up late for the 1st two and did not make up the time. She cancelled the 3rd and tried to get me to let her make up the 1 1/2 hours of lessons in an hour at the next scheduled date. At the next she cut my youngest child's lesson 10 minutes short. Then she called me today to cancel again at the last minute and tried to claim that she did not know that she had lessons on her schedule even though we still had 2 original ones paid for and had just on 10/30 paid for 3 more for each child. Very Unprofessional!!!

Hi all. I was sent an email that said Take Lessons was going to reschedule the lesson time almost two weeks ago. I haven't been given any new time yet though. Are we on the schedule at all? Janey is back at school and some days she already has activities so I hope that you will consider that when you give us a time. I don't know Kelly's schedule either but she has a young baby so there's that consideration also. Please let us know that you're thinking.
