Karen changed my voice, my work ethic, and my whole outlook on singing. I was a sophomore in college when I met her, and I had little understanding of how my voice worked or what I could do to get more control over it. Karen gave me a ton of breathing exercises and multiple other tools to strengthen my voice and ensure I'd be able to learn and execute any style of music. In one semester, she helped me with showtunes, rock, jazz, and opera. Karen does more than just hand you exercises and fix your pitch. She is an absolute inspiration. She is tough and doesn't hold back, but she is wildly kind, caring, and empathetic. Karen pushes her students to work hard and guides them every step of the way. I am so grateful to have had her as my teacher.
