Push your group to new heights

An effective lecturer and clinician, Kari can help your group step up its game for competition and diagnose problem areas. Skilled with high school, all-female, and mixed collegiate as well as professional ensembles and familiar with the ICCA rubric and the judging process behind competitive shows such as NBC’s “The Sing-Off”, Kari can help take your group to the next level of performance through general critiques as well as specialized workshops on arranging, vocal percussion, and more.

Group Experience

My experience in performing ensembles ranges from small groups to large choruses, classical to contemporary.

Fresh Perspective

Let me offer new insight for your group from the viewpoint of a singer, instrumentalist, writer, and educator with a diverse musical background.


I’m familiar with competition rubrics and strategies for addressing judging criteria without sacrificing artistic integrity.


I’ll work with your budget so you don’t break the bank!
