  • Shannon Kauble, Singer, Pianist, Teacher at Tree of Life Music

    "L.K. is incredibly knowledgeable as a teacher, singer, and expert on employment in the field of music. In a private voice lesson, I learned some wonderful exercises which helped my voice convalesce after a bout of laryngitis. I also coached a difficult aria, and L.K.'s expertise as an actress really helped me connect more deeply with the character and the drama. In a separate session, I gleaned some wonderful nuggets about the music business and how to operate as a more business-minded individual. Though the musical world can often resemble a shark tank, L.K. is an encouraging voice of truth and inspiration among many voices of biting and debilitating criticism."

    “LK Fletcher is a wonderful and amazing music and vocal teacher, who has been such a positive influence on my daughter over the last few years. LK helped our daughter develop her vocal talent, and encouraged her musically and emotionally. Under LK's tutelage and encouragement, our daughter auditioned for and was accepted to the Lyric Opera festival in Viterbo, Italy. She also put in many extra hours to help our daughter learn and practice the Italian music she needed to be ready for the opera and for her solo in the midnight concert. We have seen, and appreciated, how Ms. Fletcher has worked to make our child's natural abilities blossom, and to make her much more confident as a performer.”

    “Lisa Kay Fletcher is currently serving as my son Asher’s piano teacher.  He is six years old and has been under her instruction for approximately 3 months.  In this time I have noticed Asher become more deeply interested in music overall.  She has incorporated many styles of teaching him piano, including on-line games, flash cards, video clips for feedback and praise, as well as actual piano time, of course!    Lisa Kay is enthusiastic and motivating as she instructs Asher and her interaction with him is truly magnificent.  Her work ethic is detailed and particular, as she is providing the best start for a young student.  She is patient and full of joy at every encounter and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in her music or acting services.”

  • Mary Paige Hopkins, Actress

    "Lisa Kay is a master of all trades. I had the privilege to take vocal lessons with Lisa Kay for many years, in addition to being in some of her amazing productions. She is an outstanding vocal teacher, director, and creative mastermind. She has the ability to seamlessly pull off incredible tasks that no one else would dare to try. I am so thankful that I have had so many opportunities to work with Lisa Kay. She helped mold me into who I am today, both professionally and personally."

I work with Singers, Actors and Pianists. Across various levels of experience, age and ability the common threas is an assessment. Where are you now? Where do you want to go? What absolutely excites you about learning your craft. 

In every genre, we approach our craft with a toolkit. Technique. Technique -whether it is Meisner or Method for actors or Czerny and Hanon or Bel Canto or Belt- gives us access to grow and develop artistically with freedom and skill.

Students have multiple opportunities to engage in recitals, master classes, video and audio productions. Performers need to perform. 

There is an emphasis on repertoire- portfolio building- we all need evidence of a body of work. It is rewarding to reflect on our accomplishments and to see or hear a collective of our performances over a period of time.
