Organizational Statement
Kelli Frances Corrado has been teaching for over 10 years, specializing in helping the beginner start. Growing up in Chicago, she would sneak out during school nights to see hip hop shows and spend weekends with her Czech grandmother learning prayer rituals. This set a unique musical foundation giving voice to her spiritual beliefs and leading her to study guitar, piano, voice and beat making. She received her first grant from The Grammy’s who sponsored her first tour and has had her music featured with NPR’s Radio One, KEXP, BBC6 radio, Tom Tom Magazine, The Girls Are…, The Stranger and Seattle Weekly.
