Customer Testimonials

"To anyone who likes to sing and wants to sing better, Kathleen Kernohan can make it happen. Iíve had other voice instructors, but none compare to Kathleen. To start, she just makes you feel good, but what impresses me the most is her technical understanding of how the human voice produces sound, that is, music, coupled with the ability to make the student understand difficult concepts She hears everything, and as a result I have been able to nuance my performance to a degree I did not think possible. Think you canít sing? Go see Kathleen!"

Lately a better singer,

"My daughter is 13 and loves to sing. When I called Kathleen she said she had one time slot available and we took it and never have been sorry. In 6 months my daughter's range has increased by almost an octave, tone and sound quality have improved as well as she is much louder and not shy to sing anymore. Kathleen knows what what songs to use to make her stretch into the next level of singing. Kathleen has a very sweet disposition but really makes the students reach their goals. Thank you Kathleen."


My daughter A'lia has been taking voice lessons from Kathleen kernahan. Since she started her lessons two months ago to present there has been a dramatic improvement in her singing. Kathleen's the best singing teacher in my experience.She teaches SLS which allows a person to sing for hours without getting fatigue . She has perfect technique and Alia loves her and looks forward to her lessons. She also teaches stage presense and some dance moves plus how to hold the mike so that the children are getting three in one learning experience. Both my husband & I think the world of her. I know that as A'lia Continues forward she will make a name for herself some day and we will owe it all to Ms Kernahan. I recommend her very highly.
