Cambridge Singing Teacher Performance Coach Choral Director
‘I studied music in the United States, with a focus on voice, and used to perform
widely. For personal reasons I took a 4 year break from performing, which shattered
my confidence and interrupted my growth.
Participating in Katharina's masterclasses has helped me build up the self-esteem
to take to the stage again, and re-discover my own authentic voice in a variety of
‘Katharina creates a very special atmosphere in the masterclasses at the same time
both supportive and challenging. While always focusing on basic technique, her great
skill as a teacher is to respond to each person specifically, based on keen observation
and a deep understanding of the physical and emotional challenges singers face.
Katharina's teaching is always fresh, always positive. I find the performance classes
especially interesting: it is so unusual to get instruction in stagecraft, and so
helpful to practice with an actual audience.
Katharina not only encourages the development of personal ways to understand and
apply technique, but strips away all that is masking your unique voice. She's carried
me beyond delivering polished entertainment, to moving listeners with engaging performance.

Whether performing or observing I always leave the masterclasses invigorated with
new ideas and enthusiasm.’
