June 2004

I am a singer and a passionate teacher. I have a Master of Music in Voice Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, and a Bachelor of Music from UMass Amherst. I have performed in Washington DC, New York, Hawaii and New England in classical, opera, musical theater, folk, and cabaret shows. I have taught kids through adults in all styles of music.

In addition to teaching good vocal technique, I also train my students in performing and interpreting their songs. I give lessons based on two principals: 1st, Singing is about communication. You cannot divorce the meaning from the song. 2nd, each person is capable of creating a unique interpretation and performance of every song they sing. My desire is to help students learn to express themselves through music.

Piano · In studio

Kate is very enthusiastic, gentle and encouraging. My daughter had a blast at her first lesson and looks forward to the next.

Classical Voice · In studio

Kate was my voice and piano student and a member of the World Children's Choir for 12 years. I have followed her development and her career since she graduated. She is a wonderful mother, world class performer, a very patient and supportive person, and has great teaching skills. Every word that she wrote in her Overview is true. Anyone of any age who has Kate as her/his teacher will be very fortunate.
