Kelli C

Kelli C

Instruments:

Kelli has been singing, songwriting, and playing guitar for ten years. She is a self described folk-tronica artist. She brings lilting melodies, broadly painted string arrangements and just-on-the-gloopy side of cracked open drum machine sequences. Her music pulls from a nomadic history. A history that includes lives as a tap dancer, a military-wife, helper of the homeless, and music teacher. She creates music with a wish list mix of artist like producers Brian Deck (Iron and wine, Califone), Scott Colburn (Sun City Girls, Animal Collective), Jeffery Mcnulty (Vera Project) and other cool folk. She also goes under the moniker "Kelli's Starlight Wishes.' And in 2011 she received a grant from the Grammy Foundation. She currently resides on the label, Aphonia Recordings.

I've been performing, producing, collaborating, and teaching here in Washington now for around 20 years.  After earning a Bachelor of Musical Arts from Pacific University I began collaborating and performing with the area's top musical talent.  This array of experiences and musical relationships have given me what I believe to be unique insight into the art of music and how to approach it either as a career-minded professional or a recreationally-oriented amateur.

My love has always been rock guitar so that’s what you’ll get with me; rock and roll, hard rock, country rock, rockabilly… you get the idea. Beginners need to learn to crawl before they can rock but everything learned will be for a definite purpose and not just because that’s how it’s always been done. Intermediate students will learn the guitar parts from a variety of songs in order to develop manual dexterity and a develop a basis for learning theory. Advanced students help develop their own curriculum. ChildrenThe guitar is a great friend as it always gives back to us whatever we give to it. It is never unfair. The more we practice, the better we sound. We all need a friend like that at times (regardless of our age). Is the student excited or overwhelmed? Bored or just tired? As a parent, I have a pretty good idea what signals your son or daughter is sending and can adjust the lesson accordingly. Together we’ll all work to make lessons a successful part of their daily routine together with their other activities. AdultsWhether you have always wanted to play, or you used to play and want to get started again, the guitar is your-time for your-self. Whether that means intensive study or laid back and casual, we’re going to make sure your-lessons fit you.

For all of my students, I try to incorporate a sense of body awareness and finding ways of learning that are the most comfortable and fitting for their specific needs. I believe strongly in practicing efficiently and relaxed.  For beginning flute students, I am to work on developing a sound, using Trevor Wye's Omnibus Books 1-5 and my own long tones: later moving on to scales and basic short pieces and etudes. For more intermediate and advanced students I like to focus strongly on music fundamentals, assigning regular etudes and finding pieces fit for the students skill and interest!   For beginning guitar students, I focus on learning the pedagogy of the guitar : string names, basic care and maintenance and finger placement, later moving on to open chords and melodic playing. My intermediate players will focus on developing their chord vocabulary, melodic playing and introduction into new styles of music ; rock, jazz, classical.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
