Karen Parks is a smart, inspiring, loving, and dedicated performer and mentor. Since I began studying voice with Karen, she has revolutionized my relationship to my vocal instrument. I highly recommend training with her because she has an unparalleled ability to identify and bring out each students' individual unique sound, while strengthening their technique in order to make their craft healthy, fun, and simple. She meets her students where they are in their vocal journeys and provides a solid foundation for optimal performance. She is—most importantly—an absolute pleasure to be around (her presence never fails to bring out a smile on my face and a joyful warmth to my heart). Karen is the best of the best.
