Overview

Becoming a teacher is a special honor. As a teacher, sharing knowledge becomes an important part of life; not because you have to, but because you want to. I feel that I have great qualities that will enable me to be successful in this field. I have a Bachelor's and Master's Degree, and an Artist Diploma in Vocal Performance. I want to teach because I want to make a difference. I want to spark students’ interests; I want to challenge students to discover new things about themselves that they may not have otherwise known. I want to impart my fascination about music and love for singing with my students, so they too can enjoy a life filled with the arts and come to appreciate it on a whole new level. I strongly believe that when you love to do something, it shows, and because I am so passionate about music, my teaching will be that much more effective; I believe music will help make each individual a well-rounded human being and ready to face the challenges of everyday life.

Katie L. has help me in my singing in so many ways. She teaches me to believe in myself more and more each lesson. She has taught me how to sing in front of people with confidence. I went in not knowing how to sing and coming out of each lesson I feel I have improved my voice and confidence. She understands when you feel uncomfortable singing certain things but she gives the best tips and help to improve and succeed in singing. She has taught me so much about and I am so happy I got her as a voice lesson teacher

She is the best instuctor I have ever had. She is nice and easy to work with. She has always been able to keep my attention (which is pretty hard to do). She has just been a joy and a pleasure to work with.

Katie is a great teacher who is very in tune with her student's needs. She understands when I'm having trouble, and how to assist. She is extremely nice, and very patient. Her explanations are thorough, and understandable. Katie is happy to listen to whatever you have to say, or sing! I trust her to teach me how to bring the best out of my voice, identify the worst, and fix them. I can have great discussions, and a productive lesson with Katie, and always feel comfortable.
