I have only met with Esther three times and seemed like I have already had her for a year. She's a very dedicated and a very knowledgeable teacher. She taught me some of the techniques of becoming a good singer. I felt comfortable with Esther and never made me nervous. I had to stop because I'm focusing on my guitar playing but would like to go back to Esther in the future to help me with my singing again. I'd like to thank Esther for being so patient with me.

PERFECT MATCH FOR MY 5 y/o!!!

Kat works very well with little ones. She was very relaxed from the very first visit which definitely made it even easier on my 5 y/o daughter. During our last lesson my daughter had the case of the "sillies". Kat's tone remained the same & never once showed any signs of frustration. She was and is absolutely wonderful with her! Kat has an amazing voice & my daughter cant stop talking about her & cant wait for her lessons. We definitely made the perfect choice!

Excellent Voice Teacher for My 8 Year Old Daughter

Kat has been an excellent voice instructor for my 8 year old daughter. She is kind and patient, yet has a buoyant energy that engages my daughter in a way the some teachers cannot. The techniques and skills she is imparting to my daughter are invaluable. I highly recommend Kat for anyone (of any age too!) looking for high quality voice lessons.
