About Kathryn

Kathy believes that variety is the spice of not only life, but also music. Raised singing folk music with a musical family (think accordions, guitars and lots of vocal harmonies), she learned guitar and piano at an early age, but began singing even earlier. Her quest to give the world the best

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

"I have had one other piano teacher. I was fresh out of college. Due to relocation, it ended after a few months, and I never pursued piano lessons afterward. Reason? It felt like work. Several years later, I decided to try again. That is when I found Katie through Take Lessons!!!

Katie is a fun, light-hearted, joyous piano teacher. My lessons are 100% pure fun! She challenges me while inspiring me at the same time. She has taught me to play basic and simple pieces with amazing drama and interest. Her expertise shines through in each lesson I take. I contribute my progress to her showing me how to practice. Measures that would take me days at home take me ten minutes with her! Katie is definitely a rare gem. I feel privileged to have such a talented teacher."

"She's super friendly and awesome. She constantly motivates you to do better. I wanted to be able to sing higher and expand my range as a soprano. She helped me achieve that as well as helped me smoothen my singing especially in transition notes in my voice. All of course within the boundary of your voice. She'll never push you if you or her feels like that's the limit for today."

"I have been a student of Michelle and Robert since August of 2016. I originally reached out to them to help my performance in school musicals as well as start the training process to one day become a professional musical theatre actress. What I ended up getting was that and so much more. Whatever opportunity I took, they were there supporting me every step of the way. They made sure I was prepared for anything: auditions, performances, competitions, solos, and much more. Each year I am astounded at the chances they give me to become a more well rounded performer, and at the high level of progress I make with them in a small amount of time. They helped uncover amazing things about myself I never dreamed of finding out.

    As a student on the autism spectrum I had a lot of insecurities about working in a different and more private setting. Michelle and Robert’s care and dedication almost immediately wiped away those fears. Every lesson I felt encouraged to show my true self and was supported during the more vulnerable moments. The work they have done with their students with disabilities is something beyond praise.

4 years have passed with these amazing teachers, and I feel more prepared than ever for my future career in performing. I would highly recommend Michelle and Robert for any students with disabilities, aspiring musical theatre actors, or any general music fanatics with a strong will to learn! "
