I have been teaching voice for several years and I encourage each student to find their unique voice and to nurture their own sound and artistry. In each lesson students will learn techniques to communicate in a healthy and exciting way! Students begin working on new songs immediately in my studio and work to perform as much as they can!

About Katie B.

I am a professional singer with a Bachelors of Music in Voice from New England Conservatory and a Masters of Music in Voice from Westminster Choir College. I enjoy teaching all levels of voice students in a variety of styles. I have training in the physiology of the voice, as well as in many methods of acting and performance and can help students reach their best potential as performers! The most important thing is to appreciate your unique vocal gifts and to enjoy them and learn to use them well.

The experience was very personalized to me as a student, and the techniques for breathing and sounding better were amazing! She also has the ability of explaining difficult things in simple terms, which is extremely useful.

Katie is a great teacher. She is very professional, supportive and knowledgeable. I'm an adult student with no experience and she made me feel very comfortable. I learned a lot of about music and voice. I highly recommend her for all ages.

Katie was very proactive, understanding and very kind. My daughter is only 13 years but she is 5'8" and feels very self conscious. But Katie put her at ease and now my little girl cannot wait for next Monday. She is practicing the song assigned to her "All of my favorite things" which is also a favorite of her late grandma. She was to be the best she can and also surprise her teacher Katie. Overall our experience was very satisfactory. She is highly recommended. Thank you Katie for making my girl feel that she can reach for her goals in singing.....!!

In this position I was asked to develop exciting and creative lesson plans that utilized many different learning styles in order to reach students of all ages and levels of interest. This is extremely useful in one on one lessons because it helps me come up with creative ways to reach each student! Each student is unique, and new strategies are always useful!
