At the beginning of this school year I was shy, unconfident, and an overall scaredy cat. I was, of course, not content with this existence so I took my friends advice and started classes with Keely. At the start I was shy and kind of timid around her, but as the year progressed I got to know her more and my fear started to melt away. By Christmas I was pretty comfortable “acting” in front of her and the class. This led to some progression for me outside of class as well because I began to gain some confidence in my abilities. My stutter is almost completely non-existent now, for I used to stutter during class presentations at school, and I can stand up for myself. I am not completely through the transition just yet, but overall this class has helped me find my voice and begin to nurture it.
Before I started classes with Ms. Keely, the only place I felt secure singing was my shower. Although I was not interested in learning musical theater and had a completely different music taste than Keely, she searched for songs I would find interesting and would develop my skills as a vocalist. During my four years with this studio, I have not only improved my vocal technique but also my confidence in singing in front of others. Keely has always been supportive and compassionate. She never fails to give the best advice on anything from college decisions to personal matters, and she is always willing to connect you with others who may help. Even if you are not planning on having a career in musical theater or voice, classes from Ms. Keely will be a valuable and beneficial experience.
