GLORIA RICE- (Elizabeth Benning in Young Frankenstein)
"Ms. Rice's 'Deep Love' will not be forgotten. the song is beautifully rendered and Ms. Rice brings down the house with it." - Broadwayworld.com
“Natalie and Kevin really are a one stop shop for feeling like your best performer-self. Working with them provided so much insight into the role I am working on, both from a technical and character stand point.
I was amazed by how much we covered in our session and how thoroughly they addressed the issues I was having. Ones like, ‘What the **** am I doing??’ and, ‘Why is this note so hard?!’
I left feeling much more capable of finding my way through this process. I cannot recommend The Connected Performer enough!”
American Idol Contestant -Hollywood round
"I have been taking vocal lessons with Kevin and my range and vocal stamina have improved DRAMATICALLY. He really takes the time to figure out what I need, explore other styles with me, and truly cares for his students' well being. He has pushed and supported me through all of my auditions, shows and regular gigs. Thank God for Kevin Kelly!"

"Working with Natalie was one of the highlights of my time in University. She managed to take me from vocal insecurity to being able to consistently perform something that I was proud of. I can’t recommend her highly enough!"

"Not only is Natalie smart, talented, and able to coach students of any level, she does the work with warmth and wit. She has a fabulous ear, a wonderful sense for the style of any kind of music, and an appreciation for choreographic needs and the demands of character. Natalie is disciplined, but also sensitive to singers’ vocal health and how to maintain it—a crucial element to working with young performers. In short, I love working with her and look forward to our next project, whatever it may be!"
