Take your voice to new heights. Stand in your power.
Create the career YOU want.
Through technique that is best suited to my individual needs and my learning language, Katy not only helped me strengthen my instrument, but she helped me rediscover my love of making music. She has a beautifully holistic approach to the voice, and the most big, beautiful, kind heart. I recommend her to anyone looking to cultivate not only their voice but their artistry .
