Katarina Nolfe (Kat) founded Voice Academy NYC in 2006 and she is a noted vocal coach and singer/songwriter based in New York City with an extensive background in music and voice education.

Growing up in Sweden, Kat began performing as a child and continued singing live through to her teenage years while receiving private voice lessons and piano/music theory. Kat also studied at Kulturama, one of the most reputable music academies in Sweden.

Relocating to New York City, Kat studied at New School University majoring in Voice Technique, Song Performance and Music Theory. Privately, she studied voice under the world-renowned voice teachers Dr. William Riley and Don Lawrence. Their collective client base is a who’s who list of celebrity with names such as, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, Bon Jovi, Usher, & Monica to name a but a few. Kat worked as a singer/songwriter/performer/voice over artist for a music production company in NYC that’s responsible for many top 10 hits. She has collaborated with various musicians/songwriters and producers such as Willie Brown Jr (Alicia Keys), Catalyst (Leona Lewis, Lady Gaga, Usher, Ashanti), Stargate (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Beyonce, Ne-yo, Shakira). The production company recognized her unique talent & the raw ability she has in teaching the fundamentals of singing on a professional level. Kat therefore began teaching new and up and coming artists voice technique and song performance, & within a very short time her client base grew rapidly to the birth of The Voice Academy NYC. Voice Academy NYC has coached and prepared singers for the Professional Performing Arts High School PPAS (where they got accepted) Notable Alumni of PPAS are Britney Spears, Alicia Keys and Claire Danes. She also prepares students for recording session, auditions, showcases for record labels, music therapy jobs and the hobbyist sharpening their karaoke skills etc. Several of Voice Academy NYC students have made it through rounds of idol shows such as American Idol and The Voice in the US and other countries.Current students include professional signed recording artists from soccer moms, children, teens, Tweenies all the way to adults, be they beginners or advanced. Voice Academy NYC clients come from the surrounding NYC area but also from as far away as Europe, South America, Dominican Republic, Russia, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, singing in Spanish, French, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Yiddish, & Japan.



We are located in Midtown West of NYC at 520 8th Ave (between 36/37th) at Ripley Grier Studios.  Private lessons and studio recording and production also available.

Simple and chill class, which was what I needed. I didn't relate much to most of the song selection even though I know they were related to the day's topic. I know it's a group class but perhaps the students might benefit more from a bit of individual attention or basic feedback each session.
