I am Kadie Kelly, proud founder of Superpower of the Song, a business I built while raising two sons as a divorced single mom. The music in my life has always brought me a thriving kind of energy. Leaving my Masters in Public Policy and non profit management aspirations in the dust. I’ve taught hundreds of thousands of lessons the last 18 years, organized a gazillion recitals; and remained with students for stretches of ten years. This year I finally have my own studio space that inspires me to live more into my own artistry and where my students can come for 1:1 lessons, classes, and collaborations. You can learn more at our website, www.superpowerofthesong.com 🖤💋

Song-writing camp - in person! Superpower of the Song™ Summer 2021 Song-Writing Camp

We will learn and practice at least 3 different approaches to song writing including the use of musical questions and answers, 12-bar blues, and hand-drawn contours. Students will ideate at the keyboard then manually write notation to capture their ideas (with help as needed). In addition they will receive instruction on how to use notation software (Finale) that allows them to enter the notes with a midi controller as well as manually, and produces mp3 files of their music. We will spend time creating visual art and story to go along with our new songs as well and have time for collaborative music making and sharing.

Session 1: June 7-11

Session 2: June 14-18

Session 3: June 21-25

Time: 9am - 12pm

Cost: $1200/session

Participants must have 3 years of music training, be able to read music notation, play 2-3 octave scales have knowledge of major, minor, and blues scales. Must wear masks covering nose and mouth during camp. Contact [email protected] to register.

Camp location: Near 40th and MLK Jr. Way in Oakland

Blues Scale Intro

If you've ever been frustrated with not being able to ask questions during youtube tutorials, or with the way they jump over important information, you are in good company.
I am here to help fill in the gaps with whatever you are learning about the piano/music theory.

All you have to do to participate is comment. I will be able to see and respond live.

This is intended for beginners/intermediates.

I will be answering your questions and when I'm not doing that, talking about finger independence: what is it and how to get it. If there's time I can touch on how to enter notes into Ableton or Garageband too. You do not need a controller to do so.

Student highlight: N's repertoire currently includes three different genres of music: classical, jazz and Romani. Highlights: Sonatina in C major by Muzio Clementi, New Orleans Blues by William Gillock, and *Gypsy Camp, by Faber and Faber.
* It is important to note that the term gypsy is considered derogatory. I have written to Faber to ask it be changed to Romani and that relevant social context be added to their books.

Hi! Saying hello to you from sunny Oakland, CA today! This week’s Ask Away with Kadie K! session might be about finger independence or could focus on entering notes into programs like ableton or garage band from a computer, or phone. I’d love to know which might help you more. Comment below! Xo 💋

This week I am going to talk about ear training, in response to some questions I had about it last time.
Tune in to hear learn what activities I recommend and see some demonstrations on how to do them at home, with or without a piano. You can also feel free to ask questions about other things related to playing piano, music theory or song-writing. This is a free event open to all. Please note - I am on Pacific Standard Time and will be live, from Oakland, California.
