This Vocal Warm Up CD is to be used for working the voice before performances and/or to help develop the vocal folds for singing in general. It is not designed to replace a vocal coach. Working with Kate has been truly instrumental in helping me discover my true voice and all that it is capable of doing. Not only is Kate a great teacher, but she is a very heartfelt person, very genuine and caring. I think that because Kate is such a warm person, she is really able to create a comfortable and nurturing environment for students, which is absolutely necessary when working with such a delicate instrument as the voice. I just wanted to let you know that what you are doing with Nolan is starting to get noticed by his teachers. As you know they are having auditions for Once on This Island at the middle school. I was talking to another teacher and apparently the drama teacher said that his audition was unbelievable because he wasn\'t trying to put it over the top and as a result was the top! \'Kate\'s approach to teaching vocals is truly progressive. She doesn\'t force a generic style down your throat. She gives you the \'how\' and the \'why\' and leaves plenty of room for your personal touch. Her methods bring out your true voice. Her instruction on vocal registers, breathing, and pitch has not only helped my singing tremendously, it has also made me a better speaker and beat boxer. As a highly successful performer, business woman, and teacher, Kate Hart will go down in history as something special. Anyone who has a chance to receive her vocal instruction should take it.\' "Kate has a wonderful care free style that makes my daughter feel at ease when she sings. She is very positive and has developed my daughter's voice in safe and structured manner. She treats the voice as an instrument that needs care and finite adjustment. Kate Hart has been not only a teacher, but she is an artist. Her work with my daughter has inspired my daughter to work hard at her craft and pursue a career in singing, and she's only 12." Singing has always been a dream of mine. Two years ago I found myself at a point in my life where I was seriously thinking of pursuing singing as more than just a hobby. Unfortunately, I lacked technique. All my life, I took every opportunity to get up and sing for people and at 25 years old I realized I could only sing one to two songs without my voice giving out on me. This scared me. I didn\'t want to lose the ability to do something I loved without ever having the chance to really fulfill my dreams. A wonderful twist of fate brought me to Kate Hart. After my first couple of lessons we assessed that I had done some damage to my voice over the years but Kate was very reassuring and confident that I could correct the damage and improve my singing technique dramatically. Although it hasn\'t always been an easy road, the rewards of my work with Kate have been amazing. I look forward to my lesson every week even if I feel like I\'ve hit a few bumps in the training because I know she will immediately make me feel at ease, address the problems I might be having and restore my confidence in myself. She has never wavered in her confidence in me and has been exceedingly patient through this process we\'ve been involved in for the past couple of years. I cannot begin to thank her for the many ways she has improved my singing, my confidence and my life. She encouraged me to audition for a band, which was terrifying for me to say the least, but she had faith in me. Because of that, I did audition and I got the job. Now I\'m out there doing what I love to do with confidence and a new voice. My dreams of pursuing singing are actually looking more like a reality and I can honestly say that wouldn\'t be the case if I had never crossed paths with Kate Hart. You are a great teacher! I am so thankful that I \'found\' you! I\'ve been taking lessons from Kate for nearly a year now. I\'ve noticed a dramatic improvement in my tone and range. I\'ve become aware of what it sounds and feels like to use head voice versus chest voice. Kate is always working on improvement herself by reading and learning new vocal techniques from other voice specialists. She passes this knowledge on to her students, which keeps everyone learning all the time. She is a great \'out of the box\' thinker/teacher as well. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who seeks voice lessons. I\'ve enjoyed working with you tremendously. You had faith that I could improve my voice and my breathing when others tried to discourage me. And, I\'ve learned so much from you! Even my stage presence has improved as I\'ve become more confident. Also, thanks for not trying to change my voice, as many others, like you, find it different and even unique. Thank you also for encouraging my song writing and critiquing my efforts. In that area, I\'ve come a long way in a short time. \'Anyone who wants to sing properly, better, longer, needs Kate Hart. Anyone with stamina issues or vocal cord damage needs Kate Hart. As contemporaries, Kate & I have had similar issues to overcome in our careers, she has been invaluable to me. She has helped me find my voice again.\'
