Kate believes in joy being the driving factor in all singing lessons. She sees music as a source of fun for all ages, as well as an opportunity to build confidence in oneself not just as a performer but as a lifelong learner. Katherine believes in “cross-training” when it comes to singing; musical theater performers must be proficient in multiple styles, and therefore her students will benefit from and share in her knowledge of musical theater, classical, pop/rock, and folk techniques. Theory is also a major component of Katherine’s teaching style. While learning by ear is impressive and a skill to be fostered in its own right, a solid foundation of theory is essential to becoming a truly skilled musician.
