Hello! I'm Kathryn, and I'm a professional singer and pianist with over 12 years of training and 11 years of performance experience in both instruments. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Music in 2019. My specialties are classical and popular music. My experience as a teacher includes private lessons in both voice and piano, as well as individual tutoring for music theory and sight singing.

For me, helping others learn to read and understand music more deeply is the most rewarding aspect of teaching. I firmly believe that anyone can learn the skills needed to sing or play an instrument with practice and guidance.

For my voice and piano students, I focus on developing healthy technique, ear training, sight reading skills, and musical expression. After establishing proper technique, I work with each student on an individual basis to develop repertoire based on their unique musical interests and goals. My students range from beginner to advanced levels.

For sight singing students, I focus on developing music reading and ear training skills. My students range from beginner to advanced levels. For music theory, I specialize in helping students at both the high school and collegiate levels. My experience with music theory spans all of the analytical skills necessary to understand Western tonal music.

Whether you're completely new to music, or are looking to improve your skills as a musician, I'd love to work with you. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions you may have, or to schedule a lesson!

I have 8 years of experience with sight singing, particularly in the choral setting. Over the past 7 years, I participated in choirs that required me to be able to sight sing as part of their audition processes. For the past year, I have helped my private voice students learn to sight sing as part of their curriculum.

Great tutor!

Kathryn was kind and extremely helpful in highlighting areas I need to work on and how to go about doing so. Do recommend!

Ethan, 1 lesson with Kathryn

Amazing teacher

She was so sweet! I was so nervous and she complimented me on some things I was doing good and also gave me lots of pointers. She listened to me and next week we are working on 2 songs I like. I can’t wait for our next lesson !

Jen, 6 lessons with Kathryn

Kathryn was wonderful. This was my first lesson and she patiently went through a quick evaluation of where I'm at.

I'm so excited to get started. I haven't had piano lessons in 20 years. Kathryn quickly figured out what I'm interested in. I can tell that I'm going to learn a lot from her!

Cindy, 15 lessons with Kathryn

Knowledgeable, patient, paces lessons very well, imparts information in a clear manner, I am very happy with her tutoring.

I am learning rhythm in an effort to be able to sight sing. I am trying to marry pitch and rhythm and Kathryn is immensely helpful. Also, see my comments in the Review title. I forgot to mention that she has a lovely disposition too!

Cynthia, 26 lessons with Kathryn

Very patient

My daughter is a dancer and does acting. She wants to be a triple threat and was nervous to start group lessons without privates first. She was hesitant at first, but enjoyed her lesson and has asked to do another. My daughter is 9 by the way.
