Karen Parks is the best voice teacher I have ever had. Karen is the perfect combination of honest, nurturing and inspiring. She honors and encourages each individual's vocal strengths, while inciting her students to strive to use their voices in new ways. She is always conscious of proper vocal health and support; she will never ask you to do something you are not ready to do. Karen also has a never-ending knowledge of both legitimate, classical, pop, and contemporary musical styles and songs. She is a resource I will never let go, and a friend I have made for a lifetime.
