Kathryn has the knowledge and the patience to teach people voice and music with ease.

Upon receiving instruction on vocal health and properly navigating through my passagio, my voice has now improved in endurance, flexibility, and resonance.

Kathryn also polished my knowledge in music theory so that I may perform the Aria's I currently sing with more accuracy to the composers intent.

She is patient, passionate, and willing to go the extra mile to be able to guarantee the success of each of her students in their musical endeavors. Rarely have I found a teacher willing to take the time to make sure that everything I learned is done to how I learn as a student.

I cherish the time I spend with Kathryn and am confident now in my abilities as a performer and as a musician to be successful in the professional world. 11/10 would go again.
