Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello! I teach all styles and genres of music. If you have something specific you would like to learn - great! If you simply want to start singing, I can help guide you to find your unique voice. Voice lessons for young children will be very fun and centered around learning about music, the voice, and the body as an instrument. Intermediate, advanced, and adult lessons will be centered around building upon your natural voice and helping the students to explore and build upon their musicianship skills. Whatever your musical goals, I will help you achieve them through lessons tailored specifically to your needs!

I am an experienced professional singer. I have a BM and MM in vocal performance and voice pedagogy. I have performed multiple full opera roles across the Eastern US and abroad. I have sung jazz concerts with big bands, musical theater and cabaret performances, recitals and concerts, as well as religious and sacred music at churches, weddings, and funerals.

Katherine is an amazing teacher. I can't believe how quickly I went from knowing nothing about the piano to being able to play some of my favorite songs. I would recommend her to anyone and any age range. I also think she teaches singing and I've noticed that she has a wonderful voice!

Kathy is a great teacher and musician! She is extremely knowledgeable about the voice! I love that she always has a positive and kind attitude, is really helpful, and knows how to communicate information in the best way.

Singing · In studio

Katherine is a truly superb teacher, who has great insight into not only the technical aspects of singing, but also the emotional and psychological wellbeing of the singer themselves. When my daughter Charlotte told me she wanted to audition for the school musicale, I did have my doubts. She is incredibly shy and sometimes comes off as quite aloof. I thought perhaps voice lessons would help her to loosen up a bit more than her weekly piano instruction. I found Katherine through a friend whose daughter was also taking voice lessons. At our first meeting, Katherine was a joy to speak with, warm and welcoming towards my daughter, and I had no reservations about the arrangement. After a few short weeks, I noticed a change in Charlotte's confidence and her motivational drive. She was excelling not only in her music, but also in her other areas of study. This trend continued up until the day of the audition. Charlotte had the confidence to audition for the musicale, and she DID earn a role. I am incredibly proud of my daughter and incredibly grateful to her teacher. Katherine has helped my daughter in immeasurable ways, and we look forward to future study with her.
