About this pro

I was recently named the Top Speaking Voice Coach in New York!  I coach Speaking Voice, Presentation Skills, Overcoming Fear, and Accent Reduction - all with many years of experience.  My lessons are dynamic and positive, and you will succeed!

Note:  I am a Speaking Voice coach - not a Singing coach.  However, a lot of the techniques are the same - especially the breath support and projection, which we start with.

    Karen is a straightforward woman who transmits clear, realistic and precise teachings. I wanted private coaching to improve my voice techniques and Karen showed me what personal empowerment and grace look like. She taught me an attitude and a mindset of success (in just a few sessions), as well as forward and elegant positive thinking while keeping feet on ground and really caring to look at any blockages that may be interfering. She was respectful, tough on and caring about my insecurities and uplifting in showing me how to get through and past them, bravely and effectively. She guided me through exercises that already set a change in motion within my brain and body right then and there, not just theories to read and go home with to “apply later”. I learned just as much from Karen’s personality as I learned from the lessons she so clearly explains. She is experienced and trustworthy. I feel extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to visit New York & meet her in person for these sessions. Needless to say she is a top-notch professional and her lessons will now remain a part of me in all my future achievements.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Please Note:  I am a Speaking Voice coach - not a Singing Coach.  However, a lot of the techniques are the same.  We start with my "APB" - Articulation, Projection, & Breathing.  Proper breaath support is really important, for speaking and for singing!  I have been coaching for many, many years, so I can evaluate the student within the first two minutes as to what is needed.  Everything we do is very positive and supportive!  And please see my website for a lot more, esp. the Testimonials page:
