Welcome to the Jolly Voice Studios!

Private voice lessons are a great investment in yourself, whether you are a professional singer, student, or sing for fun. Group lessons and workshops can also greatly enhance your understanding of your voice, your body, performance techniques, performance anxiety, or auditioning.

I can help you build, refine, and enhance your vocal technique so that you are free to express yourself and connect more deeply with the material you’re singing.

I teach students who are studying traditional bel canto singing, musical theatre, crossover, and pop, accompanying them for lessons or recordings.

If you feel frustrated when your auditions or performances don’t match what you can do in your lessons, you may have performance anxiety. I can help you learn some techniques to manage the symptoms and perform at your best.

Join us and leave more empowered and joyful, prepared for your musical endeavors.

  • Dr. Jolly is by far the best voice coach I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Never before have I had a coach care so much about not only my professional development, but my personal development as well.

  • I began working with Dr. Katherine Jolly after surgery for vocal nodes. She completely revolutionized the way I sing, giving me better control over breath support, cleaner tone, dramatically improved vocal stamina, and most importantly she taught me how to sing in a way that I would not injure my vocal cords again. Having worked with other vocal coaches in the past, I’ve found that the majority of instructors are great singers, but are unable to translate their abilities to effective teaching. Dr. Jolly does this impeccably and has been able to teach me fundamentals of singing that I was never before able to grasp.

  • “Taking vocal lessons with Dr. Jolly was a wonderful experience that I will always be grateful for. My musicality, vocal ability, and stage presence improved so much as a result of Dr. Jolly’s excellent guidance. I always looked forward to my lessons with Dr. J, and my confidence grew every time I sang with her. Dr. Jolly is absolutely wonderful to work with, and I am so happy with all the progress I made during my lessons with her.”
