What clients say about vocal training with Kate:
I was referred to Kate DeVore after being diagnosed with severe laryngitis and paresis of the right vocal cord. I had trouble producing my voice, and I was afraid of losing my capacity to teach and lecture.

It was obvious to me from the beginning that she enjoyed every minute of her work and was an extraordinary professional.

Kate was absolutely instrumental in helping me overcome an array of obstacles that were standing in the way of my becoming a yoga teacher after retiring from a career as a lawyer. She gave me advice and exercises that allowed me to overcome chronic hoarseness, incorrect use of my breath, vocal folds that couldn’t join and made my speech breathy, poor vocal resonance, sloppy diction, failure to maintain eye contact, and serious stage fright. I cannot say enough about the breadth and depth of Kate’s knowledge and her ability to convey it.
