"Kirsten has the health, wellbeing, and growth of her students' voices in her best interests at all times. And with that comes a great deal of honesty--which is, I believe, the most valuable thing to a performer. It becomes more apparent to me each week that Kirsten advocates for her students well beyond their 30- or 60-minute lessons. She is constantly building our reps and creating polished audition packages so we can walk into any situation a little bit further ahead. I have never trusted or excelled with a teacher like I do with Kirsten."~Nina E.
"My daughter, Marissa, has been taking voice from Miss Kirsten since the summer of 2012 and we are more than pleased! Miss Kirsten is a talented performer in her own right and a gifted teacher who has really helped Marissa grow as a singer. She is also a great person who takes a personal interest in her students and really has faith and believes in them, helping them to believe in themselves. Under Miss Kirsten's guidance, Marissa felt fully prepared and confident for her recent college audition for DeSales University. Marissa not only got into the Musical Theater program but was told that she was one of the top candidates! The flexibility of scheduling the lessons also been a great help, since teenagers are so busy these days! I can't thank Kirsten enough for being a positive influence in my daughters life." ~ Rosemary B.

"Kirsten Almeida's instruction has helped me in so many ways. Breathing, technique, blending and she's even helped me find my upper register again -- long thought lost! She's intuitive, dedicated, direct and even strict -- but in such a good way, you can't help but have fun in each lesson! I cannot recommend her enough to students just starting out to seasoned professionals looking to keep their instrument in shape. Thank you Kirsten!!" ~Andrea C.
