Overview

Kelly has been teaching music in the Plano area for more than 20 years. His main goal as a teacher is to help each student achieve his/her individual goals. Motivating the student and illustrating the proper techniques are what he considers to be his primary responsibilities. Kelly teaches his students all the things that nobody ever showed him.

His teaching philosophy is derived from a blend of two distinctly different schools of thought. On the one hand, there is the "by the book" music theory approach. This approach consists of reading music and understanding the theories behind composition, chord construction, harmonization, etc. The other approach is a more free-wheeling style where playing by ear and actual playing experience provides most of the basis for teaching. He uses both perspectives to teach because he believes there are benefits to both styles.

Kelly does his best to keep each student excited about learning music.

Kelly is an excellent teacher! He's very patient with his students and really tries to teach each student using their own unique way of learning. He is lots of fun, always punctual, always reliable, and so very talented. I'd recommend him to anyone!
