Kerri Lyn Scott
Voice Lessons Instructor
I’m an extremely positive and motivated person who thoroughly enjoys sharing her gift and knowledge with other people. I have a Performer’s Certificate, a Masters of Music and a Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance and Opera.
I have been teaching voice lessons for twelve+ years and currently run a private studio out of my home in Elk Grove, CA. As much as I love teaching, I also truly enjoy performing on stage. I have performed the professional opera role of Lady Ella/Chorus in Cimarron Opera’s performance of Patience.
I began teaching for a community school for the arts in Muncie, IN. After I graduated with my Masters Degree, I taught lessons for a children’s theater company in Manitowoc, WI until I started my Performer’s Certificate. I taught for another community arts school during my Performer’s Certificate in DeKalb, IL.
After that, I began a private studio out of my home and have been teaching privately at my in-home studio ever since. I also have experience teaching Music Theory and Ear Training, Music Appreciation and Private Voice Lessons at the college level as an Adjunct Professor at Kishwaukee College in Malta, IL.
I have always loved and enjoyed teaching! It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I am always eager to welcome new students of all ages and skill levels!
I teach classical technique that can be applied to any kind of music. I don’t just teach opera, I teach several other genres as well including, but not limited to, pop, rock, alternative, and musical theater.
I have set aside a complete room in my house for my teaching studio. I have a Baldwin spinet, a Manhasset music stand, a wide library of music and a sofa for students and their parents to sit on.
Too far away and still want lessons? No problem! I have also begun online voice lessons through Zoom! I can also make time zones work. Lesson prices are the same as in-person lessons and payment will be through PayPal.

Kerri was a wonderful pleasure to have singing at my wedding. She helped to make my day an utmost memorable one!!
Kerri Lyn Scott has performed at our Winery here at Harmony Wynelands and our Wine Club Members really enjoyed it.
In October 2019, the First Congregational Church in Porterville hosted another Silent Movie ‘extravaganza’ with renowned organ accompanist Dave Moreno. After the 2018 program, we had begged that he think about doing the incomparable “Phantom of the Opera” for 2019. Not only did he give it serious consideration, he revealed that he knew a superb soprano who could sing during the performance! Isn’t it the epitome of every female vocalist to be Christine? Without having seen ‘hide nor hair’ of this singer, nor even asked for an audition, we instead were jumping for joy. It would be thrilling.
Kerri met every expectation and more. She is both unreservedly personable and impressively professional. Lacking expert musical critique abilities, all we could do was be awed and transported by her beautiful voice.
Thank You, Kerri, for the beautiful addition of your talents at this show.
My daughter loves taking lessons from her. Kerri's personality makes the lessons really fun. She teaches my daughter at her level, where she is able to understand things. She's just an awesome teacher!
Let me start this off by saying, I have had a good amount of vocal training in the past and have experienced multiple coaches, so I would consider myself fairly knowledgeable on the voice, techniques/concepts and what to look for in a vocal coach. I had been searching for a consistent, high quality coach in the Sacramento area for a while before meeting Kerri. I knew from our first session she was just the coach I had been searching for. Yes, she has an exemplary resume with her education and experiences, but that is really just the surface. I love her enthusiastic and engaged teaching style which kept me progressing even throughout the session. I had always grown up believing certain people can sing and others were just not blessed with the ability, but the fact is, that idea is completely false. The voice can be trained just like any other muscle, however, the importance of finding the right coach who will properly assist your voice with progressing throughout your training is detrimental. As said previously, I have experienced multiple coaches but none with the education, experience and passion for teaching like Kerri. Very much looking forward to our future sessions and the progress that will continue to be made!
