Very nice, I have only had one lesson but accomplished more than I expected. I look forward to more lessons. I would recommend KeriAnne for anyone who wants to find their voice and learn how to make the best it can be

She did not show up to the lesson. My daughter was excited to meet her and was disappointed that she didn't bother to attend. Then after the lesson I saw that KeriAnne had cancelled the next two weeks of lessons (not today's lesson, but the two that were to follow). She did not cancel today's lesson. So I don't know what happened for today. Either way, it seemed unprofessional of her to not show up to the lesson today and for her to have cancelled the two following ones. ****Note to all instructors, if you aren't going to be available early on for some lessons with a child, please let the parent know before agreeing to set weekly meeting time so that the parent has the opportunity to decide whether they want to still proceed. Thank you.

I appreciate the patience Kerianne has with my teenager. She is gentle and knows exactly what to have my daughter work on. She is positive and gives a lot of praise for work well done!

Very Hands-on and knowledgable. After only three sessions my voice has come a long way and I can't wait to continue the lessons. Kerianne is highly recommended if you want to really learn.

Mrs. B. is excellent. Our granddaughter is a 7 yr old beginner and the lesson was patient but fun, stimulating but not over the top, inspiring with a desire to learn more. We highly recommend KeriAnne !

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of working with KeriAnne. My grandmother found her on a site, much like this one and it all started from there. I can honestly say that finding her was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Not only is KeriAnne such an outgoing and fun person, but she is so very talented. While working with her, I studied opera, classical music, theater performance and music, foreign languages, along with a little piano. I took lessons for about a year and it completely changed my ability to sing. I am proud to say that I am in an advanced women's choir at my school as well as a show choir that I had to audition for. I know that if I hadn't been coached by KeriAnne none of that would be possible. Her teachings have lead me to great things and if you ever have the chance to work with her it is truly an opportunity like no other.

KeriAnne is awesome!
She worked with my daughter for classical piano and vocal training. KeriAnne has a passion for music and a desire to teach that made each class fun and satisfying. My daughter learned quite a bit and KeriAnne really worked to stretch my daughter to new heights she never realized she could achieve.
I would highly recommend KeriAnne to anyone interested in expanding their child's musical passions.
