I want to sing the praises of Kadie Kelly. She has been the piano teacher of my beloved Jazmine for over 5 years now, and I want to share how personally pleased I am with the instruction Jazi is receiving. Kadie is very patient, positive and very kind. Jaz loves her lessons and is doing extremely well. Thanks Kadie, we love you!

Kadie Kelly is honestly involved in the musical maturation of her students. She loves piano and that comes across in her teaching. It’s not about her system or approach as a teacher but more focused on the student’s growth.
— Phil Hayes
When Kadie first met with William, she asked him what his favorite songs were. He told her that he liked the theme from “Spider-Man” and “Let it Go” from “Frozen”. In a small but important way involving William in the process of selecting music really energized and engaged him. Kadie then transposed those songs at a beginner’s level so he could play them. Because they were songs that he liked, we never had to ask him to practice.
— Scott Sillers
I highly recommend Kadie for both children and adults. My two daughters, ages 9 and 11, and I have been taking lessons from Kadie this past year. She comes to our home so it is very convenient and has been a great experience for all of us. She has a youthful energy and very upbeat attitude that we all enjoy. She balances learning theory and notes with teaching songs that are fun, current and keep us engaged. I never have to remind my kids to practice. They just do it on their own!
