Voice Coaching with Katie Wise- for kids, teens and adults

OPEN YOUR VOICE, OPEN YOUR LIFE!
Join me in a powerful learning relationship. Learn to sing, speak, and live more fully through private voice coaching.
Open up the power in your speaking or singing voice

Break through blockages in your life, through the portal of your voice
Improve the strength and health of your vocal chords, or heal injured chords
Find more resonance, tone, pitch, power, dynamics and subtlety in your singing and speaking
My voice studio is nestled cosily into my house, surrounded by open space in East Boulder/Lafayette. Each lesson begins with a centering practice and check in. Coaching sessions can include exercises to open breath capacity, nourishing practices like toning and sound healing, or technical skills to create more powerful singing technique and open range. I work with the whole performer, whole being, and I bring a lot of wonder and curiosity to the journey of being a performer or sharing our songs and speaking publicly. I help decrease perfectionism, self-doubt, stage nerves and clear things that get in the way of us joyfully sharing our selves through our voices! What does it take to create a life as a performer? How do we navigate the ups and downs of sharing so vulnerably? We also look at voice and impact in the world. We look at dismantling old stories about voice, and stepping into the life you desire and 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 towards transformation through the voice and beyond. I also offer small group classes throughout the year for those looking to dive a little deeper.

Get help producing your voice-over demo in a way that will bring you success
For students interested in working in voice-over- I can work as individual lessons to improve reading and find range. For those just getting started, I offer help with demo production. For voice-over demo production, we work on finding your 'money and honey' voices, script selection, and pre-studio preparation. I help you decide on the most appropriate studio for local demo production, and then I go into the studio with you to produce your demo. Voice over demo production can take anywhere from 20-50 hours, depending on experience, and groundwork, and we usually set a budget before we begin. Reach out to me if you'd like to explore this.
I look forward to creating a space for you and your voice to deeply heal and play. So much joy and vitality come from opening up your voice.

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."
