I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.

My daughter is really enjoying her voice lessons. Kathleen is a talented, caring teacher and knows how to make the process effective and fun for my daughter. My daughter loves being able to choose the songs she wants to learn, and this collaborative process keeps her quite interested and inspired.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

As an Orchestral conductor, I served as Music Director of the University of Texas University Orchestra and enrolled in several conducting competitions. In our lesson, I will lead you to understand the meaning of the score and explore the music's intention. Practically, this lesson including conducting technique, interpretation, score study, analysis, rehearsal technique, stage deportment, and musician interaction. All students receive equal opportunity in a completely transparent organization.
I strongly encourage instrumental players to learn how to conduct. It will not only give you the power to teach young ensembles, also enhance your ability to analyze the pieces you're playing. Please shoot me a message if you are currently interested in Musical Conducting.

Miss Benita as we call her :) is so good with my 8-year-old daughter. In just 3 lessons they have built a great rapport. Benita is relaxed, reassuring, with a great sense of humor while at the same time imparting great knowledge of the violin to my daughter. I appreciate her welcoming us into her family home even during the pandemic. We felt that in-person instruction would be more desirable than online, and I think that my daughter is learning so much more with our arrangement.

"Inna is a fantastic teacher who has helped me come a long way with my vocal technique, as well as feel confident with my own voice. Two years ago, I came to her as a novice singer with weak control of my vocal muscles and little sense of how to properly approach a song. Ever since, I have learned to comfortably sing in styles I previously didn’t even consider because I perceived them as too difficult. She has a keen sense for customizing warm-up exercises and giving constructive feedback. For whatever song I wanted to practice, she helped me make it my own. Additionally, Inna is very patient, good-humored, and knowledgeable. She even she encouraged me to write my own music and helped me learn composition. I have surprised myself through these lessons. I highly recommend lessons with Inna!"
