What the Kids Say...

Private Lessons

I had already had voice lessons before with two different teachers but with Keri I saw the difference immediately: she makes use of very precise yet fun exercises which, with regular practice, really improve one’s technique. She’s also great at giving little tips and tricks that really come in handy; I'll definitely be continuing my lessons with her in the fall.
