What can I expect out of voice lessons with KST?
The KST Studio of Voice provides private voice lessons to singers of all ages and voice types! A performer of multiple genres, Katherine celebrates the vocal individuality that each student possesses and teaches fundamental singing techniques that apply to ANY style of music.
Full-time students take weekly lessons that focus on developing healthy singing technique including: proper breath support, tonal production, registration, diction, as well as style, performance presentation, and audition preparation.
MORE THAN SINGING
As an actively performing professional vocalist and actress, Katherine offers her students a unique and invaluable perspective on both the technical art of singing as well as the world of auditions and the business of performing. Vocal technique meets professional savvy, allowing her students to gain poise and confidence to prepare them for all aspects of performance.
