Here, we are passionate about providing rich musical experiences for students of all ages and abilities.

Week after week, our mission is simple: to ensure that every student

learns something exciting,

accomplishes something hard,

plays/sings something beautiful  

— and probably, has a good laugh.


This, we believe, is the stuff of life and music.

Owner and instructor, Kelsey, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. She spent several years teaching  general music (PreK-5th grade), chorus (6th-12th grade), and directing an adult church choir before opening the studio full-time in 2013. Her specialty is Italian art song, although she finds joy and meaning in just about every kind of music that exists.

Kelsey particularly enjoys teaching classical voice,  adult voice, and beginning piano, and LOVES middle schoolers and summer camp! Most of her favorite teaching moments include vulnerability from both sides of the bench, and she believes firmly that in music, heart matters more than most else. She loves finding new ways to drive home old concepts, and finds great  joy in being an innovative, creative teacher.

Kelsey makes her home in the West End of Richmond with her realtor husband, Drew, and their two young children. When she’s not teaching, she enjoys reading, exercise, peace and quiet, plain black coffee, lots of music, and chasing her kids all over Richmond.
