Kelly O'Dea Violin Lessons


Academic Tutor

Making Every Lesson Count

I’m a professional violinist, mental health counselor, and academic tutor with experience working with children, adolescents and adults using a variety of theoretical perspectives, in individual, family and group sessions with a specialization in play therapy with young children.

All About Me

A Dedicated Teacher

I love what I do and it makes me so happy to be able to share my passion with others. Since starting as a professional Violin Teacher, Academic Tutor, and Mental Health Counselor in 2017, I’ve been privileged to see so many students discover their natural skills and abilities and reach results they never dreamed were possible. If that sounds like something you’d like to explore, get in touch.

My goal is to primarily to teach my students, but also to make sure they have fun in a pressure-free, judgement-free environment. Whether you’re looking to learn on your own, or are interested in joining with others, please explore the options below.

    • Her commitment to meeting her students where they are and improving not only their skills, but confidence!

  • Ann Smith 

    • She is incredibly kind and patient. Learning the violin can be very intimidating and she broke it down in a way that was encouraging and fun!

  • Cary S.

    • Kelly was my daughter's violin teacher. My daughter started violin at eight and Kelly was incredibly patient, kind, and encouraging to my daughter. Every time we had a lesson, my daughter's confidence and determination to improve increased.But more importantly, I was amazed at how happy, confident, and determined my daughter was to learn her instrument. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
