I studied with Karen before and had to stop for a while. When I decided to come back to voice lessons, I checked around, but realized that Karen's methods were the best. She makes sure that you understand what is happening with your voice and why. She is also very compassionate and intuitive, and understands that sometimes when I'm struggling with my voice, it's not because I am incapable, but that there could be something emotional behind it.
Not only that, but taking lessons with Karen has improved my confidence and self esteem tremendously! I always leave her lessons feeling good about myself - even when she is tough on me, I know that she cares about not just my voice, but about me.
