Katie began teaching voice professionally while at the State University of New York at Fredonia, where she received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. During her time studying voice pedagogy and assistant teaching, she quickly developed the teaching philosophy that progress starts with the student-teacher relationship.
“Singing can be incredibly vulnerable, and a student must feel full support and comfort from the teacher to build confidence and trust.”
She is a recent graduate of the University of Denver, where she received her Master of Music in Vocal Performance. At the Lamont School of Music (UD) she taught voice to non-music majors and was an assistant teacher of opera.
As a classically trained singer, and after several years of teaching and research, Katie strongly believe in the use of proper technique for healthy production. She specializes in Mixed Voice (blending of the chest and head voice) and Belting used in musical theatre. Both of which can be applied to all genres of singing.
Katie teaches voice for all ages, levels, and styles. She also teaches beginner piano (her first instrument).Email Kathryn:firstname.lastname@example.org
