I have been working with Karen Sussman for several weeks after being referred to her by my ENT doctor for persistent hoarseness and a nodule on my vocal cord. My voice quality has improved tremendously! Using her techniques and following her sound advice has allowed me to maintian conversations in social situations without losing my voice immediately, and I no longer experience the frustration I dealt with in those situations. Karen is a wealth of knowledge and experience in her field.She is the consummate professional, and I look forward to each and every session. I learn so much during every enjoyable visit, and have no probelm following her wonderful directions for my home practice. Karen loves what she does. Because of Karen, even though I started out having great difficulty just to speak, I dare to hope that one day I will actually be able to realize my dream of taking singing lessions.
Karen is absolutely amazing!!! I am a working voice over actor required to perform a wide array of voices and characters, which often need to be sustained over many hours. Since seeing Karen, I have experienced a profound change in terms of comfort, sustainability and range. Her sessions are really fun and enjoyable, even though you are technically doing work! Her wide variety of techniques are highly effective, yet so simple to learn and do, and very easy to integrate into a busy schedule. Karen is truly a pleasure to work with - she is so positive, warm and welcoming, yet you can tell immediately that she is exceptionally gifted at what she does and has a very deep and impressive understanding and expertise in all areas of her work. I highly, highly recommend her!
