Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Krista, I have been singing, song writing, recording, and performing as a professional singer for over 15 years. I have spent countless hours honing and refining my skills and abilities in all aspects of singing and music creation, and have had 12 international releases working with Grammy Nominated Producers (StoneBridge, Zhu, and others). I've performed on stages from LA, NYC, Miami, to Tokyo, Japan connecting with thousands of people through the art and craft of singing.

In 2007 I apprenticed under my mother Catherine, who has over 30 years of music education experience. Over the last 10 years I've continued to evolve and develop my private vocal coaching practice based on listening to the needs and desires of my amazing clients.
My clients range in age, gender, and musical background. From beginner students that have never attempted singing before to professional musicians/songwriters looking for support in their careers and help with song writing or to get their voices in shape for recording projects or tours; brides and grooms take a handful of lessons in order to sing a special song at their wedding. I coach young adults who are preparing to audition for American Idol, The X-Factor, or a school musical. Many yogis and yoginis have sought my coaching in order to enhance their Kirtan experience. I also get a great deal of clients who aren't really singers in any capacity at all, but are looking to gain power with their voice and expression as it relates to their businesses; many entrepreneurs, business owners, speakers, and coaches have phenomenal results working with me to powerfully access their voices!

"I am so grateful for Krista in my life! Not only am I inspired by the way she lives her passion, speaks her truth, and shares her gifts, but I have also had the opportunity to learn from her as my voice teacher. During our first lesson she showed me how to access many different aspects to my vocal range that I never even knew existed. Then we rocked out to some amazing songs together and I got to experience right away the fruits of the practices that she shared. Instant results, and a whole lot of fun. This woman is one in a million." ~Maura R.

I would love to opportunity to work with you!

A lesson with Krista brightens up my entire day. The meditation and grounding exercise that she begins the lessons with are the best. She structured the lessons to work with my voice and the particular issues that I was facing. That indeed helped me a lot.
