Singing since the age of 4 and with a varied career and wealth of experience spanning over 20 years, as a Mezzo Soprano I am passionate about teaching and enthusiastic about nurturing the talent of confidence of others.

It has been a privilege to train with some fantastic singers/artists over the years. I started training under Mezzo Jean Allister at Leeds, and then Theresa Goble at the Guildhall School of Music. Later, I studied for several years with Janice Chapman and in recent years with Mezzo, Gillian Knight.

I teach privately at my music studio in St Ives, Cambridgeshire and have pupils aged 6 - 76 young, all who are working to a variety of different personal goals. 

I am singing coordinator for a local education authority overseeing singing strategies across nearly 40 primary and middle schools, and am used to working in independent schools helping children of all ages through exams, on stage performances and mentoring for auditions. 


I’ve also worked with music college students at Degree level and with adults of all ages towards exams, roles, auditions or simply to improve confidence singing either alone or within a choir.

All styles of music covered from Opera, Classical, Choral to Musical Theatre and Contemporary.

I teach all levels, from the absolute beginner wanting to learn for fun to pupils wishing to learn music for exams, auditions and performances.

Lessons include specific breathing and vocal technique, with the emphasis on enjoyment and positivity in working towards individual goals.

I work on confidence building, performance training and can offer career advice about working as a singer/performer within the current music recording industry. 

My 9 year old daughter has had many singing lessons with Karen and it has really helped to build her confidence and singing technique. She is so passionate about teaching and is fantastic with aspiring young singers!
