Testimonial by Lela Cloud
Kristin has "diagnosed" the strengths and weaknesses of my voice and "prescribed" vocal and postural exercises and techniques that have made my voice stronger, clearer and more beautiful than I thought it could be. Her use of imagery, her obvious passion for teaching and her extensive academic research of the voice combine for a transformative learning experience.
Testimonial by Anthony Jefferson
Kristin Samuelson is an amazing teacher. She is an authority on breathing techniques and takes the physics approach to voice. Within one week of taking classes with Kristin, I noticed a dramatic improvement in my voice. And I am a professional singer! She truly is the Voice Doctor.
