Hi there! My name is Kyara Kalb, and I am a 23-year-old singer songwriter and kids music teacher.
I have been teaching music professionally both privately and at two different Orange County music schools for five years. I have recorded studio albums, and played live at venues all around California with dozens of musicians and bands (you can find my original music on any streaming service under “Kleinahexa”).
I specialize in teaching kids the basics & fundamentals of music through popular, classical, and “broadway” styles of song (but I’m always open to new genres!). I can teach your child skills that will not only allow them to confidently play beautiful music on their own, but in a way that will improve comprehension and intellect in every field of learning; all while having a blast!
Below you can find a small summary of my “loose” curriculums for each instrument. My philosophy is to teach my students the basics and fundamentals of not only the intrument of their choice, but music in general. I slowly build upon those fundamentals with both traditional learning methods, by adding in “fun” and challenging goal songs of the students choice, and by peppering in theory, songwriting, and all the little extra things that your child finds the most intriguing about music. My goal is to not only inspire hard work and talent, but passion and creativity.
I have had training in pop and contemporary voice, classical voice, and musical theatre from both private instructors and in college. When teaching your child voice I will instill healthy voice habits through different exercises and “warm ups,” scales and sight singing, lessons in diction and musical expression; all through multiple styles of music. I keep track of each song with a “final demo” or video that I send to you. This way you can see your child’s progress first hand and be able to share their hard work with friends and family!
I will teach your child piano using a series of books to keep track of lessons we’ve learned and short songs and exercises that build upon the fundamentals your child learns each week. Along with the “book songs and lessons,” I will expose them to basic music theory through both classical songs and contemporary “radio” hits that your child can choose!
I will teach your child either acoustic/electric guitar or ukulele by instilling the fundamentals of all types of songs and styles of playing. From chord charts, fingerpicking, soloing, to songwriting; we can do it all while having a blast! I teach basic skills like scales/finger exercises/etc. and integrate those skills into super fun classical, pop, and rock and roll hits!
