Reach your fullest potential as a singer with me. My passion is helping you be your absolute best.

My mission is to help students reach their fullest potential as singers and to build their confidence in the process. Lessons focus on each student as an individual and can encompass anything from vocal technique and song repertoire to audition coaching and even recording sessions to help the students with a project or to help them simply hear the subtleties in their voice more clearly as they train and grow. Vocal Technique covered includes: Range Building, Tone & Color, Vocal and Musical Dynamics, Diction, Releasing the Jaw, Opening Up the Sound, Body Conditioning For Singers and finally, Breath Support* *I teach breath support in a way most teachers do not. I help students gain strong abdominal muscles and teach them how to use them to sing with more power and control. Rather than releasing the belly (as most teachers recommend) I show students how to breathe into their backs and use all three lobes of the lungs (upper, middle, lower). This allows them to keep the abs strong and tight WHILE singing and breathing in. It also looks much better onstage ;) Mostly, it works! "The proof is in the pudding" as they say and the pudding is a strong capable vocal instrument from head to toe. I also teach Music Theory for singers and Solfege for those who wish to learn those two musical languages. Solfege is the "Do Re Mi" we all learned when watching The Sound of Music. I find these basic languages help a singer tremendously, especially when it comes to collaborating with other singers and musicians. Sofege is a fantastic way to learn intervals and to become versed in the many different modalities of melody and musical genres and styles. When a singer can accurately sing any interval, their pitch improves and their ear and these are fundamental to creating a voice that will be received as "professional" and "advanced" sounding. The other thing I love about teaching these two methods is that it is really fun and helping students really get a solid understanding of them is tremendously empowering! I also can provide Artist Mentoring to interested students. I can help singers determine what style(s) of music they are most gifted at and then help them find song material that will help them really shine. For singers who write their own songs, I have about 20+ years experience as a singer-songwriter myself and can aid with that unique and artistic journey into finding both your voice and your "voice."
About Kait K.

Kait K. has been coaching singers of all ages and abilities since 1997. "Every singer has stumbling blocks. It is my passion to help them identify those, understand them and then move past them. Singers are complex people with complex instruments, and no matter what our expertise level, the desire to sing is something to be protected and nurtured. I value fun, honesty and true comprehension in the singing studio. I find those three things, meshed always with a sense of discipline and playfulness, are the keys to helping singers unlock and develop what makes them unique artists with something to say." She has taught in public and private schools, colleges and universities and privately in San Diego & Los Angeles, CA and Salt Lake City, UT. She has owned and operated her own studio since 1997. As a teacher, Kait's focus with each student is to help them understand both the anatomy and health of their vocal instrument and to help them tap into their very best sound in an engaging and fun way. Professionally as a singer, Kait has headlined her own blues band in Los Angeles and sung in several cover bands. Kait was also the lead singer and co-songwriter for the band Light Vizion and co-produced the band's debut album "Looking For An Angel" and can be heard as the solo vocalist on the album "True North" by Tristan Moore. She is currently a freelance vocalist in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has sung lead and solo in a large variety of venues, including Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall, Rose Wagner (Jeanne Wagner Stage) and several local clubs and restaurants as well as festivals and outdoor concerts including the annual Pride Festival, Millcreek Venture Out Festival, Avenue's Street Fair and the Brown Bag Concert Series and several fundraisers. While in Los Angeles, Kait performed in numerous clubs and blues music venues, including The Brown Derby, The Blue Cafe and BB Kings in Hollywood. She has also worked as a professional singer for several years in the Los Angeles Music Industry where she performed in several bands and worked as an in demand "session" singer (someone people hire to come in and quickly record vocals for various professional and experimental projects). Kait's education as a singing performer includes a B.F.A. from the Actor Training Program at the University of Utah, an M.F.A. in Musical Theatre Performance from San Diego State University plus 5 years post-grad study in Los Angeles training in voice with world master voice teacher, Edward Sayegh. In 2004 Kait returned to her roots in Salt Lake City, UT to continue both her singing and teaching career. She continues to direct The Performer Studio, a non-profit school for singers, as well as write, arrange and record as a freelance singer, and has appeared as the featured vocalist with groups like Children's Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company as well as other local blues and rock bands. Kait: “As a teacher, my goal with each student is to help them to become the very best they can be as singing performers. But in addition, I aim to lift their spirit during the time they spend with me, so that when they leave their lesson, after the work they've done, they feel better, more inspired, more empowered and more confident and driven than they did before their lesson. Watching my students evolve as both artists and people is why I love what I do. I have the honor of watching them find themselves through music while they build truly lifelong friendships with the performing peers they meet in the classes and performances they participate in here...they end up finding some of their 'kindred spirits' in life here, and that is something that is priceless as an artist."

If you want a music instructor who can guide you through the mysteries and joys of playing music, go to Kait Kingston. I sought her expertise for Chromatic harmonica. She quickly and painlessly explained the complexities of the instrument and had me playing songs within a few lessons. Kait is a fine music instructor and a pleasant and interesting person. If you are an aspiring musician, do yourself a favor and call Kait. If you want a music instructor who can guide you through the mysteries and joys of playing music, go to Kait Kingston.
