Ms. Krista has been my vocal instructor for a year now and I absolutely love love love our sessions. She has reasonable pricing, flexible scheduling, and very knowledgeable about a range of genres that will fit your needs and interest. Ms, Krista makes her students feel comfortable with learning and trying new things. As her student, my genre interest is r&b and pop. Although, I came in as an untrained singer, Ms. Krista has help strengthen and repair my vocals from years of over singing. This consists of training my three voices (chest, head, and mixed). I have no doubt in a couple of more years I will reach a professional level of singing because of her. Over the year, Ms Krista has taught me different jazz techniques and soulful tips to be able to apply to my r&b music selection. We've sung a bit of jazz, pop, r&b, and even a bit of blues type of songs. In the beginning I wasn't quite interested, however, with her expertise she's opened my mind on different approaches that I can use to strengthen and build my repertoire. Ms. Krista's critiques are very constructive yet helpful to push you to your greatest potential. She's even given me tips on performing and how to be a better entertainer on stage. Ms. Krista never rushes through sessions and is always prepared and ready for the next student. Ms. Krista has never been unprofessional. Ms. Krista has always kept me eager for lessons. She is very opened minded unlike some instructors to what you want out of the lessons instead of pressuring students on what she has already prepared. She lets you have a voice on what goals you want to set for yourself with her help. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an instructor that is going to push you and challenge you to your greatest limit than Ms. Krista is the one to book.
