My voice studio is nestled cosily into my house, surrounded by open space in East Boulder/Lafayette. For now, during Covid-19, all my students work with me virtually through Skype or Zoom. Coaching sessions include exercises to open breath capacity, nourishing practices like toning and sound healing, and technical skills to create more powerful singing technique.. I work with the whole performer, taking a holistic and multi-dimensional approach to each student. We bring a lot of wonder and curiosity to the journey of being a musician, songwriter, or public speaker. I help dismantle perfectionism, self-doubt, stage fright. Together we clear things that get in the way of joyfully sharing our selves through our voices! What does it take to create a life as an artist? How do we navigate the ups and downs of sharing so vulnerably? We also look at voice and impact in the world. We dismantle unconscious commitments around voice, and help you step into the life you deserve. I have a full sound system and in-home recording studio, for students who are interested in working with singing for stage, band leadership, or recording professionally. I work gently but powerfully. I also offer small group classes throughout the year for those looking to dive a little deeper. (see Vocal Transformation) Reach out to see if we might be a fit for working together.

Testimonial from student Jenny Shawhan
“I often joke fondly as I refer to Katie as “my woo-woo voice teacher who is ruining my life”. What I mean by that is this - From day one, she had the keen awareness to not only cue into what was really happening for me, but help me create a new commitment to myself that has been radically transforming my life ever since.
What I needed was beyond the technical voice training I’d already received over the years honing my craft as a vocal performance major and a professional musician. I needed to go deeper into my core beliefs and the basis for my decision making. No matter what you’re looking for, Katie has a vast tool kit to resource any type of artist, imagine her as “the Mary Poppins” of voice”. Katie’s studio is alive with a spiritual, mindful, and intelligent focus.
If anyone on the planet has a voice that longs to be heard, or could use support to fully express and find that voice, Katie is your teacher. She is very present in each moment with her students and her whole bodied approach allows everyone to be celebrated and to take inspired creative action."
