When I first started learning from Miss Keely I was young and thought I knew everything about the world because I was fourteen and fourteen year olds are annoying. Through my time learning from her, I not only grew as a woman, but I became more confident in myself through the roles and feedback Keely gave me. Because of her, I grew as an actress, a vocalist, and as a human being because she pushed me just far enough to allow me to grow without becoming too overwhelmed. Keely knew just when to give me challenging pieces that really pushed me and when to give me pieces that reminded me just why I love musical theater. I owe a lot to Keely for teaching me skills I still use to this day.
