« The distant sound of singing drifts through my window from the Portakabin in the playground where Katerina is rehearsing a group for 'SISTER ACT', which now seems to be involving huge numbers of people... Katerina is an inspiration.

The distant sound of singing drifts through my window from the Portakabin in the playground where Katerina is rehearsing a group for 'SISTER ACT', which now seems to be involving huge numbers of people... Katerina is an inspiration. I remember that at her interview we were somewhat concerned when she said she had to protect her voice, but in fact she has such authority that she never even has to raise it. Children recognize real professionalism when they see it.

I've been studying with Katerina for the last eight months. In that time I have gained valuable experience so much so I have recently been granted a scholarship with Riverside Opera Company. Katerina's teaching has enabled me not only to improve the quality of my voice but also to strengthen my singing technique, and gain the confidence to move forward in my singing career. I feel privileged to be working with an amazing performer and excellent teacher.

Katerina is an excellent singing teacher and a wonderful person. She not only strengthened my technique, transforming my voice, but nurtured me, encouraging my confidence. My only regret is that due to other commitments I was only able to have lessons with her every few weeks. Katerina's patience and clear instructions helped me to develop and I came away from each lesson happily feeling as though I had made a huge achievement and step forward. I would anticipate my lessons with her with excitement.
