Lisa A.

Walled Lake, MI

About Lisa

**Summer Intro Special**
During summer, I am going to be offering lessons out of your home for $20! Prices will go up in fall and space is limited, so book your lessons this summer to hold your spot for fall!

Lisa studied Classical Piano under Ruth Jones for 13 years and under Audrejean Heydenburg at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She studied Voice under Tamara Whitley for 6 years and under Charles Livesay at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. Lisa has been teaching Piano lessons for 10+ years and Voice lessons for nearly as long. She studied piano pedagogy and vocal music educatio
n at Spring Arbor University for 2 years. She then taught music at West Highland Christian Academy for K-12 students and Home School Band and Choir for upper elementary students. Along with teaching, Lisa leads worship at Bend City Church and has accompanied for several community plays and student scholarship events.

"I enjoy all kinds of music and really want to share my love of music with people of all ages. My goal is to get people excited to learn and expand their abilities through voice and piano and to prepare future performers and teachers as well."

*** Lesson Details ***
Lisa teaches all styles of voice including Classical, Italian, Jazz and Folk styles as well as Contemporary, Pop and Broadway. She incorporates the fundamentals into her every day teaching style and helps the student to grow in their technical ability through application in each song they study. Lisa teaches the student how to use their voice correctly as well as how to have good stage presence and performance ready ability.

Lisa teaches beginner piano students from age 5 through method books as well as more advanced students in either Classical styles or Contemporary styles. Some students have the desire to be concert pianists or to teach piano themselves, others just wish to play with a band or play songs which they can sing to. Both styles are valuable skills to learn. Lisa will discuss with the student which direction they would like to go and decide together what the student would like to learn.

You will receive a copy of Lisa's studio policy at your first lesson. You will be required to read over and sign this policy before lessons are to continue.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is in my apartment in a comfortable living room setting. Parents are welcome to wait and listen to the lesson or drop the student off.

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained Piano, Specialize currently in improvising with chord charts or lead sheets. Worship Music.

Voice lessons rely heavily on Broadway, and Show Tunes, but also include Classical, Italian, Latin, Folk Tunes, Classic Rock, Groups, Performance.

I don't know where to begin. Lisa is absolutely wonderful! She's skilled at what she does and really understands children. She wants them to have fun while they learn. My daughter's vocal range has improved tremendously and she's very confident on stage. I would highly, highly recommend Lisa to anyone!!

Kelly C.

Whitmore Lake, MI

About Kelly

Greetings! My name is Kelly and I have been teaching voice and piano since 1991.

My training in voice/singing/performance/Voice Movement Therapy has been extensive and multi-faceted as has my own performance experience. This has enabled me to successfully guide/mentor students who are not only singers of classical, musical theater, pop, folk, and jazz, but also people who use their speaking voices to teach, present and act.

My teaching approach is more holistic in that it not only addresses the technical and physical influences that affect the singing/speaking process, but also the emoti
onal and psychological influences.

I work with ANYONE who wishes to vocally express themselves more freely and authentically, including those who consider themselves to be tone-deaf.

While voice is my primary instrument, I also teach piano to those who wish to learn to read music and those who would rather learn chords.

I initially selected Kelly as my singing teacher because of her extensive academic credentials and personal singing career. Since taking lessons with her for over 7 months, I have come to really appreciate her non-judgemental attitude and approach to teaching, as well as her creativity, thoughtfulness and insight.
My initial reason for taking singing lessons was to develop my voice to hopefully bring singing back into my life, which had been a real source of joy for me in my "younger days".
After only 3 months of working with her, I had an opportunity to do some public speaking and was quite surprised at how confidant I felt and how well my voice carried into the crowd, a marked improvement from previous public speaking experiences I have had. After 6 months of lessons, I was able to sing solo in public for the first time in my life with real success.
I look forward to working more with Kelly and her techniques to continue to develop my voice and my range of singing experiences and opportunities. I highly recommend her as a singing teacher. Above and beyond her expertise in the realm of singing and voice work, she makes every lesson pleasurable and fun!
