I received lessons from Katherine over the summer. This was my first time with online lessons, but took lessons before from someone else one on one. The attention to detail, new techniques, and patience from Katherine far out weigh the one on one received. Katherine is an exceptional instructor, knows her stuff, with a wonderful sense of humor to boot. I will be taking lessons again-time and money permit-and she will be my instructor. I highly recommend her for any style of singing. I am skipping my way to a better voice. Thank you Katherine

My first time taking lessons online. We introduced ourselves, she wanted to know where I was musically and what my goals were. This is a very important feature because I will get more out of the class. She also has a warm and inviting sense of humor which helped me to feel comfortable in my first online lesson. Looking forward to the rest to see how far she will take me.(I have a feeling I will be impressed.

Katherine is a great teacher, takes the time to listen to what you ate trying to accomplish. She helped me achieve what I was hoping for.

Katherine is excellent, especially for someone who is either a beginner and also works extremely well with people like me who have had vocal injury and are trying to get back on track. She's all about technique first -- which you have to know and know well before you can sing opera, power metal, punk -- whatever. I've learned so much from her and worked so well with her in just this short time I've been with her. She's amazing!

My daughter says that: 'Kate is a great piano teacher. She is patient and funny. She always has good tips for ways to practice and she's not too strict (...like, she's really calm;). I also like when she tells me the history behind a piece of music.'

Our daughter has been a student for a couple of years and has really connected with Katherine. I feel that she has been a wonderful voice coach as she has push our daughter to her full potential and it has really shown from the competitions that she has been in. Our daughter would still be with her today, except she moved away to begin her college career. I would highly recommend Katherine for your son or daughter!!

Katherine Krueger is an awesome instructor! She really takes the time to address your voice style and find pieces to build a repitoir that fits you as a musician, as well as she takes into account your range and pushes you to expand and better yourself. Best instructor ever! :)
