    Kevin Schellhase

    Piano, Coach/Accompanist

    About Kevin Schellhase

    Singer and Pianist, Kevin Schellhase, holds a B.M. in Vocal Performance and has been a lifelong piano student. Kevin has been teaching piano professionally for over a decade, and has had the priviledge of accompanying for some of the great vocal teachers of our time. His own studies of classical vocal performance were mostly in the studio of internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Molly Donnelly, but Kevin values life-long learning and has sought out the expertise of several of DC's most elite voice instructors. His unique combination of skills as an accomplished pianist and a budding vocal pedagogue make Kevin a well-rounded teacher and an excellent accompanist. Kevin has prformed both as a pianist and singer at many venues and events surrounding Washington, DC and is a three-year alumnus of the National Philharmonic Chorale, as well as a recurrent company member of the Victorian Lyric Opera Company, having appeared in comic and romantic baritone roles in Sousa's The Charlatan, Reginald De Koven's Robin Hood, and Strauss's The Gypsy Baron, as well as singing and providing accompaniment in several Gilbert & Sullivan productions, including The Pirates of Penzance and The Yeomen of the Guard. When not teaching, Kevin enjoys composition and is proud to have seen his original musical works performed around the United States and internationally. Although he has the benefit of classical training, Kevin's roots on piano stem from learning by ear. As such, his teaching method is very accommodating to unusual musical learning styles. Kevin's flexible and creative approach to teaching allows him to customize lessons to each student's unique needs to provide the most efficient path to success. In addition to offering private lessons, Kevin serves as the principal recital coach and accompanist for Cardon events, including monthly Master Classes and quarterly Student Showcases!
