My name is Kelly Larson
My interest in music began at a very young age when I began singing in school and church choirs. Throughout middle school and high school, I focused on vocal performance and received affirmation through various honors (district solo festival winner, all-state participant, jazz competition solo achievement awards, OMTA recital awards). I continued to study music through college and completed a total of seven years of private voice lessons.
Since then, I’ve directed children’s choirs and an adult choir. I was a member and soloist for New Classic Singers, a professional classical choir in Chicago. And I have taught private voice lessons for 13 years. For six years, I taught preschool-6th grade general music and choir at Bellevue Christian School. I am Kodály certified and have continued graduate studies at Seattle Pacific University.
Seven years ago, I picked up a ukulele and fell in love! After years of studying and teaching music, I found a new creative outlet. The ukulele! It is a fabulous instrument for learning about music and building strong musical skills. I have taught after school classes for large groups as well as private lessons, and I have 6 years of experience performing on ukulele, leading school-wide singing at weekly assemblies and occasionally playing in my church’s contemporary band.
