I want to share my love of writing with my students. The written word is still considered to be highly valued in the Unites States and it is essential in everyday life. Obviously what I teach to an elementary child would differ than a college student but reaching a high level of writing ability would be foremost.

About Cathryn K.

Hello! My name is Cathy and I have been teaching voice (singing) for over 30 years. But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm a stogy old girl who doesn't have a pulse on contemporary music. I teach pop, country, broadway, folk, whatever it is your interested in. I do teach with vocal exercises because without them no changes will be made and that's the whole point right to change your voice? However you do get to sing songs. I teach, so that you will change your voice and succeed in whatever avenue you want. My degree is in Vocal Performance from Northeastern Illinois University and one year of Masters work in Drama from DePaul University.

I also teach ESL, Reading, Writing, History which I have done for the past ten years. I use a variety of techniques since no two people are alike to help you learn English or the American lifestyle. I presently teach Caterpillar employees, spouses and children. Let me teach you and see how far we can go.

Thank you.

Love the way Cathy relates to my 6 year old granddaughter...she is very hands on in a positive and upbeat manner and gets down to eye level when getting her point across. Has the child feel her jaw for example to learn the best position for a voice exercise. Then she often asks if the child understands what she is saying, asking for a return demonstration and verbal response of “yes’. And she reinforces success while repeating directions for mistakes...just a great teacher.

She did a great job putting my 13 YO son at ease. She worked him diligently for an hour and he came away pleased with his progress, what she taught him about himself and was amazed at how fast the hour went.

Cathryn is doing a great job with our 12-year-old son. Not only is she teaching him the basics of singing in a way he can understand and practice, but she is teaching him the mental part which is good for his stress/anxiety in many aspects of life.

Cathy is very patient with my 12 year old, she is teaching her the fundamentals of singing and that singing is more than just your voice. I enjoy watching them stretch and do exercises to strength her core. My daughter also enjoys that Cathy
lets her have a choice in the songs they work on. My daughter also says, "she is fun and funny!"

Cathryn is very kind, quirky, and welcoming. My 10 year old daughter adores her! Her love of singing and enthusiasm for it is contagious. She has used many teaching techniques with my daughter that I have not seen before, but have proven very effective. I can hardly believe the change in may daughter's singing after just a few lessons.

Very friendly and straight to the point. Doesn't waste your time and gets things done. Be prepared for a vocal workout

Cathryn is the nicest lady I have ever met. She's kind and caring. She has one of the best voices I've ever heard, and if you're looking at improving your singing ability, I couldn't recommend her more. Whenever I was sick she was eager to reschedule so we could continue working. Unfortunately for me, my work schedule is too hectic to continue lessons. When my schedule calms down a bit, I will 100% be searching Cathy out again to take up lessons.

Cathryn was wonderful!!! My daughter loved going to her. I wish we had more time to go more often, but when we can take lessons again we will definitely want to go to her.

Cathy is extremely nice and wastes no time getting to worth with her clients. She is fun to work with and packs a lot into a half-hour lessons. I noticed clear improvement in my vocals after just a couple classes. I'd highly recommend Cathy!

This is my first lesson and I really love this lady she is happy and excited about teaching and she makes me feel comfortable learning. She also is flexible in allowing me to use my type of music that I am and will be singing.
I feel that I am going to enjoy my voice lessons,
Ms Cathryn seems to be Great!

I had a great time with Cathy. She made me feel comfortable and as someone who was very new to signing, she was super patient. During the few months I took lessons with Cathy, I felt I became a much stronger, more confident singer.
