Teaches students:
Ages 7+ and special needs

Teaching since:
2006

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 is fabulous to work with. She was very positive and encouraging as well as insightful with tips for dealing with nerves during the audition. Her approach includes technical tips which she introduces in a very hands on, experiential way that my 12 yr old with no vocal training could understand. My daughter felt more confident going in to audition after working with Katie.

Lily just had her first lesson today and she really enjoyed it! She can be a bit nervous at times, and Katie was just wonderful and so engaging with her, that Lily was very at ease. I can't wait to see how she'll progress with Katie's guidance! She's excited!!

I have never taken singing lessons before and don't have any aspirations to become a professional. I was looking for a teacher who could teach me how to improve my voice but still make the lessons fun. Only 3 lessons in, I already have a very positive experience with Katie.

We spent the first lesson getting to know one another. She immediately understood that having fun with my lessons was high on my priority list. She was very reassuring and it was easy to communicate with her. I never felt intimidated aside from the normal first lesson anxieties and I think her demeanor was key in that.

I have learned quite a few exercises and techniques from her already which I think will really help me going forward. She is very patient and she is able to articulate what she wants me to focus on. I think she has a knack for teaching and I'm really looking forward to continuing my lessons with her.

Overall, I'm having a lot of fun and learning a lot. I can't recommend her enough.

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.
