Katie Lou Agresta
Not Just A Leader, But The Standard Since 1981
"I've seen the light; I've gotten results like I've never seen with anything I've ever tried to do in my life. I sat with Steve Perry in San Francisco, and I never thought I could keep up with him, but I did. I do my voice exercises every day -like religion."
-JON BON JOVI
"Ever since I started taking voice training with Katie, it's been a pleasure to sing. I have increased strength and flexibility and range, and I would recommend to her any singer."
"I studied vocal therapy with Katie Agresta for seven and one-half years, and the work we did together has been invaluable to my career."
"During 18 months of solid touring around the world, I warmed up with Katie Agresta Vocal Exercises before each show... and have to say that it genuinely kept my voice going for all that time -so there must be something to it!""
