Overview

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.

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.....!!
