Kelly's Music Corner Staff

Kelly Esposito-Broelmann

Owner & Licensed Maestro Kindermusik Educator
Kelly Esposito-Broelmann ("Miss Kelly") has been a licensed Kindermusik Educator since 2008.  Kelly was born and raised in Middletown, NY and is thrilled to be able to offer such a beneficial program right here in her hometown.  A trained classical singer with a Bachelor of Music from Westminster Choir College and a Master of Music from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, Kelly has performed both nationally and internationally as a recitalist and opera singer.  After the birth of her son in 2007, Kelly started coursework to become a Kindermusik Educator.  Proud to be a business owner and licensed educator, Kindermusik has been the absolute perfect blend of Kelly's love of music, teaching and children.  Starting out small back in 2008 allowed Kelly to focus on being a new mom to her beautiful baby boy.  With the Kindermusik classes growing every year, Kelly soon outgrew her cozy studio.  In March of 2015, Kelly expanded into what is now an almost 2,000 square foot space allowing her Kindermusik classes to increase in size!  Additionally, there is a large room which is perfect for hosting birthday parties (and a variety of other things...including meetings and classes) and there are three lesson rooms for piano, voice, and guitar lessons!  In addition to teaching all of the Kindermusik classes at Kelly's Music Corner, Kelly also teaches a group voice class for young singers ages 7-11!  Miss Kelly was thrilled to be named a Kindermusik Maestro Educator by Kindermusik International for the seventh consecutive year in May of 2020!
