"Never have I experienced a teacher so patient and kind. When I first started with Nancy I had a quiet, whispery voice that was definitely afraid to speak into a microphone. When I left I had been transformed. My voice is now unique, wonderful, and strong. And so is my belief in my abilities thanks to her coaching. She saw great potential in me and never stopped believing in my voice and me. I was also grateful for her flexibility with scheduling and her ability to customize her coaching for my specific skill level. Nancy Sofka is one of the best mentors I have ever had." - Autumn A.

"Nancy Sofka has been my vocal coach for the past two years. Nancy took a raw talent and with her patience and coaching prowess developed it into a much more professional voice with a greater range and more control. She is much more than a vocal coach; but a great inspiration to all of her students. I have had the pleasure of appearing in several of her student productions and I have always enjoyed them and Nancy." - Theresa L.
