Vocal, Ukulele, Clarinet, Saxophone, Piano and Songwriting Lessons 

Hi there! I’m a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and experienced private music instructor in the Austin area. I offer lessons in Vocals, Ukulele, Clarinet, Saxophone, Piano Songwriting, Recording and Production.

I have a taught students of all ages, from 3-65. I especially enjoy teaching children and beginners. Helping people learn the basics and nurture a love for music is so fulfilling! I enjoy teaching a variety of styles, using elements of classical, pop, even jazz or rock to develop a students’ skills. If the student has interest in a specific style, I’m happy to focus on that style. Whatever keeps the student engaged and learning efficiently! 

Due to current circumstances, I offer lessons via webcam only. (Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, Google Meet, Etc.) My standard rates are $30  for 30 minutes or $50 for 1 hour, however these may be negotiable if you have special circumstances or siblings taking lessons together.

I love finding new and enjoyable ways to help students learn. Every student has different needs! I also take time to find out what style and type of music the student wants to play so we can adjust the curriculum appropriately!

    Kera has a wide range of expertise, and she’s very casual, so when taking a lesson with her, it doesn’t feel like you’re talking to someone who’s overqualified and who uses too many complicated terms. I’ve taken a couple lessons with her and she’s been very good at figuring out exactly why I struggle so much when singing and suggestions on how to fix it. She’s given me simple tools to use for fixing my problems, and I’m still working on it, but these have helped as I practice with them. I highly recommend that you consider Kera.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to spend some time in the first lesson learning about your experience and goals. I'll ask a few questions usually, and maybe ask the student to play/sing something so I can get idea of where they're at. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

2 Years Teaching at The Musician’s Woodshed (Vocals, Ukulele, Piano, Guitar, Songwriting, Clarinet, Saxophone, Recording/Production)
