"Kellie has been an inspiration to the students she teaches. She has a wonderful way of engaging students with really interesting repertoire, oftentimes challenging students to explore other performance practices. The work accomplished, both in solo instrumental teaching and ensemble direction, is outstanding. She has been an amazing asset to our teaching programme."
(Mr B. Walmsley - Head of Music: The Kings School)
"Dear Ms Grennan, I write this in the hopes of expressing my gratitude for your incredible commitment, care, compassion, and support throughout the time I have spent under your tuition. As a teacher you were able to nurture my growth, both in skill and as a person. I have no doubt that without your knowledge and wisdom, as well as your nurturing character, I would be anywhere near the level of achievement I have accomplished this year. You have also impacted on my life outside the practice studio, as a role model. If I am able to develop and share my passion to half of what you have shown me, and what I have witnessed around the school, I will be a proud man..."
(Ryland - Year 12 flute student: TKS)

As a teacher, Kellie has influenced the lives of countless students, passing on her knowledge in a gentle, enthusiastic and loving way. Her students have excelled consistently over the years. As a performer, Kellie transfers her love of music with great skill and musicality."

(Mrs D. English - Head of Wind, Brass & Percussion: Moriah College)
"Kellie Grennan is an outstanding teacher in every way. She shows a remarkable interest in the developing of musicianship of each student. She is patient yet exciting, while exhibiting the greatest care for her students. The very first lesson was such an amazing experience, and gave me and my daughter -Ania who was 9, the feeling that Kellie is the best teacher you could ever have. Now, 3 years since the first lesson, the love for music and practice at home grew so strong that we both I and my daughter can’t wait to the next lesson. We come from far away but we would travel twice the distance just to have a lesson with Kellie.
Kellie is a wonderful and talented flute teacher. She is very patient and very caring for her students. She individualizes her teaching and absolutely brings out the best in each child. Ania and I are so grateful for Kellie. We just love Kellie’s energy, her spirit, her kindness, her patience and her outstanding teaching.
Kellie is amazing with children and creates an environment that is friendly and inspiring. She takes tremendous interest in her students and connects with them on many levels. She sets high expectations and inspires her students through her own love of music. Her teaching style is the perfect balance of both friendly teaching and encouraging each and every student, yet very professional that emphasizes on progress.
Kellie Grennan is a true gift to our lives and I would recommend to anyone eager to learn and to appreciate the wonders of music."
(Danuta Janczewski - Mum of Ania Janczewski Year 6 student - AMEB Grade 6)
"Kellie Grennan is an amazing teacher who has dedicated herself to help each and every student succeed. I started when I was 9, and I have excelled in my playing ever since, thanks to Kellie’s wonderful lessons where I enjoyed improving my flute playing. She has helped me grow into the young flutist I am today, and thanks to her help, I have succeeded in my AMEB exams. Over the few years, Kellie has dedicated so much time and effort into helping me improve my skills in every way. Kellie is definitely the best flute teacher.
Thank you Kellie for everything you have done to help me improve and I am looking forward to next year’s lessons."
(Ania Janczewski - Year 6 - AMEB Grade 6)
"Kellie has been a fantastic teacher and mentor. My playing has transformed and improved immensely over the few years that I have studied with Kel and I have her to thank for it. She also never stops seeking new knowledge about flute playing which is inspirational to someone studying to become a music teacher. Thank you for all your guidance!"
(Serena Lin - 3rd Year UNSW Music Ed Student)
"Kellie is an amazing teacher who generously shares her passion for the flute with all her students and actively works to ensure they are the best musician they can be."
(Simon - Dad of Jack: Year 7 flute student: Windworks)
"Kellie has been my son’s flute teacher since 2013. I am most impressed by her teaching skill, her dedication and personal attention to each student’s need. I could feel our son’s improvement and positive approach to his flute skills not long after being with Kellie. She has greatly inspired him a true fondness and enjoyment of flute playing. Kellie has played such an important part in helping him with achieving his AMEB performance certificate and recently his AMusA diploma success. It has been a privilege to have Kellie as a key part of my son’s music education. I truly recommend Kellie as a flute teacher regardless of your skill level."
(Jenny Jiang - Mum of Cranbrook Music Scholar/Year 12 student George Wang)
"Emmanuel has joined Kellie after a period of tuition elsewhere that seemed not to have produced results. Since then, he has not only made good progress but also has attained confidence and liking for music generally.
This was helped significantly by Kellie's introduction to the what is happening within the music scenario generally. We are more than happy to recommend Kellie as a music teacher in her field."
(Alex and Maria Chistiakoff - Parents of Emmanuel, age 8)
"Dear Kellie, Thanks for helping me get into the con high school. You're the best"
(Alexander - year 6 flute student: Windworks)
"Kellie has an open and friendly personality and a genuine empathy with her students. As her lecturer in Teaching Methods at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in 1994-1995, I was often impressed with Kellie's innovative and creative approach to teaching. Apart from exhibiting an excellent understanding of technical and musical processes, she has the knack of stimulating her students' interest, and consequently their desire to learn and improve. Kellie's teaching always encompasses thorough training in aural and musicianship skills, reflecting her own ability as a well rounded musician."
(Former Lecturer - Queensland Conservatorium of Music)
"Thank you so much for the beautiful tunes you created which 'danced' around the corridors of this hospital on Monday! My team members are still in awe when they start to describe your performance!
(Some were asked whether there's a CD they can buy!?) It's been such a pleasure having you here and such a privilege that you made time to participate in our pastoral care week campaign.
Thank you from the whole team!"
