I create a judgement free/ supportive environment in which to learn and grow. I have a BM in Vocal performance from New England Conservatory of Music. I also am a skilled pianist and piano teacher. I look forward working with you and traveling this journey of music with you! Katie
I have been a full time teacher for 5 years. I work with ages as young as 3 and as old as mid 60's. I enjoy the variety in ages as I believe my approach to teaching is one of building a strong musical foundation and I am skilled and flexible to teach these concepts to all ages. I am a singer first and a pianist second. Piano was my first instrument, and then I later went on to study voice at New England Conservatory of Music. Here is where I earned my BM in Vocal performance. I have performed with many groups throughout the New England area as a singer. I have worked with many different students from different musical backgrounds and enjoy this very much. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
For piano- I teach out of several method books- Faber, Bastein, John Thompson and Alfred's. I also implement Dozen a Day for piano technique and Hanon and scales. I use Czerny for the intermediate student. For voice- I work to build a solid understanding of breath, posture, vowel sounds and shapes, singing legato, etc. I believe a classical technique in both instruments is the best foundation for growth into any style. This technique will compliment- jazz, pop, rock, country, etc. For the child's (5-12 )voice lesson, I use much musical theatre and pop songs.
I strive to have each student grow their passion and love for music. To remain curious and fearless in trying new things. I enjoy working with students to set goals such as - performing in a recital, auditioning for a production or competition, for singing and playing music they never thought they would be able to. I create a friendly judgment free learning environment. I do expect a student to be committed to their lessons and practice, but build this with care and compassion. I enjoy teaching immensely.
Very patient with young students. She is able to gently guide students back to the task at hand when their attention wanders.
I absolutely love Katie. She is a great teacher and I feel very comfortable with her. She is encouraging and she also pushes to go further than think I can. The time flies by and she makes it very fun. I look forward to these lessons all week. I would highly recommended her.

Katie, Has been a wonderful instructor. She understands my goals and works with me on a game plan. She has always been honest encouraging and flexible. Highly recommended.
Katie (Katherine) is a wonderful music teacher and coach. She establishes a wonderful rapport with her students, and grounds them in solid fundamentals of breathing, stance & posture, and alignment, even before getting into theory, diction and other aspects of singing. These building blocks allow for amazing growth as a singer and musician. My daughter has flourished as a singer with her, and I look forward to many more lessons to come.
She is absolutely wonderful and my son loves his voice lessons very much! Katie is patient, very kind and makes lessons a lot of fun. My son is always very happy after his lessons and looks forward to them weekly. Katie is especially talented at making a child feel at ease singing infront of her and singing in general. I couldn't wish for a better voice teacher for my son.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
