The effect of voice therapy has been life changing.
After just one session with Christine my voice opened up!
Christine was very professional and present when she was working with me. I definitely will work with her again.
My voice has maintained stronger than ever.
Christine was able to pinpoint the tongue issue immediately.
Referred by my TMJ specialist - Christine was able to pinpoint the tongue issue immediately. We worked on proper chewing, swallowing, and breathing with various exercises. She also used myofascial release as a way of releasing tension in the jaw and neck, which felt great.
Now, after working with Christine, my tongue rest position is pretty close to second nature after being wrong for so long and it's really helped my TMJ issues!
Christine taught me so many tricks for projecting properly without hurting my voice.
Christine helped me realize I am not a total dud at carrying a tune.
She is an extremely caring, patient and kind teacher whom I highly recommend.

She has truly helped me where no one could.
Christine is very clear in her teaching on how ones vocal cords work, and in the exercises she has me do and why. She is very patient, kind, caring and most of all she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
If you are seriously looking for a voice coach or are having problems with your speech I highly recommend Christine Sofiane Katzenmaier. She has truly helped me where no one could. Be sure to call her. She is great!
I was pleasantly surprised that my problems could be solved.
Her explanation of how the vocal chords work was very clear and helped in the understanding the role the exercises she prescribed played in correcting my problems. With a limited number of sessions I was able to see progress and positive change in both my singing and speaking. I was pleasantly surprised that my problems could be solved. Christine was wonderful to work with, always encouraging with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend her as she is very knowledgeable and skilled in her profession.
It improved her smile without braces!
We especially enjoyed Christine's thorough knowledge of myofunctional therapy, her sharing that information with us in a manner we can understand, her professionalism and unending patience as we progressed in the therapy.
Christine rescued my voice!
I met with Christine and showed her the footage from the scope and she immediately pointed out some spots on my vocal folds that looked suspect (the doctor missed them), and recommended additional testing to rule out problems in addition to atrophy. Christine gave me referrals to some top laryngologists and additional testing indeed revealed that I had more going on, such as acid reflux, which impacted my voice as well. Christine showed me some strategies on how to cut down acid reflux and taught me effective techniques for my voice.
With Christine's help my singing voice has quickly returned. She is still helping me to correct some lifelong bad singing habits but it feels great to be able to rely on my voice again with confidence. I highly recommend her!
Thank you, Christine!
Once we found Christine my opinion immediately changed.
She was compassionate and encouraging and achieved solid results.
Life for me is 1000 times easier than it used to be.
