Kait K. has been teaching singers of all ages and abilities since 1997. She has taught in public schools, colleges and universities and privately in San Diego & Los Angeles, CA and Salt Lake City, UT. She has owned and operated The Performer Studio (a production company for high quality vocal productions) since 1997 and is the director of Salt Lake Singers Academy.

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.

Kait: "Every singer has stumbling blocks. It is my passion to help them identify those, understand them and then...shatter 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 honesty, discipline and detail work in the singing studio. I find those three things, meshed always with a genuine sense of FUN, are the keys to helping singers unlock and develop what makes them unique artists with something to say."

Professionally as a singer, Kait has headlined her own blues band, sung in several cover bands and also performed as a featured lead vocalist alongside John Lee Hooker Jr. (Blues Grammy artist nominee) on his western tour of the U.S. Kait was 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 Scarecrow Festival and the Brown Bag Concert Series and Furry Fiesta Fundraiser! 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 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 as well as other local blues and rock bands.

Kait: "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 here, so that when they leave for the day, after the work they've done, they feel better, more inspired, more empowered and more confident and driven than they did when they arrived at my door. Teaching and watching my students evolve as both artists and people is thrilling! 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."

We are so lucky to find such a wonderful teacher. Kait is so helpful--my daughter has already shown significant improvement, and I believe that she will continue to get better. Kait is very knowledgeable, experienced in a wide range of topics, and a real sweetheart with my teenager.

Kait provided a very thorough grounding regarding breathing and breathing apparatus at the first lesson. This is exactly what my granddaughter needed to enable her to move forward. My grandchild was very satisfied when she left the class.

Kait is a wonderfully patient and caring person. She is a marvelous teacher and is adjustable and tries very hard to make everything work to my benefit. She keeps all my emails, recordings, music in my file for quick reference. She helps with everything to do with my singing and how I progress forward in that effort. Really Love her and recommend her to the fullest extent. Ray Rhea

Kait is awesome! She really knows music and she has the real experience to back it up. Whether you are aspiring to achieve pro level skills or you just enjoy music for personal enjoyment, you will find something here. You can work privately or in a group. The people in the class are fantastic! There is something about making music together that everyone should experience. Kait and the other students foster a great supporting environment to help you release the music inside you.

This teacher works to bring out the possible best in a person. She provides constructive criticism when needed but also makes you feel you are learning and progressing under her instructions. She took a shy, quiet person and turned him into someone who is learning that it can be fun to perform for live audiences and how good it feels to express a talent you always wanted to share with others but were not sure you had it in you to do so. I greatly love and respect this teacher.

Kati is the best. She's so supportive and encouraging. She's great for all levels of talent. I have so much fun with her.

She Doesn’t listen to your input and she’s hard to approach. When she feels wronged she lashes out at you via text message or email instead of hearing you out and finding out what’s going on. Making it even harder to approach her in the future. She says to make the song your own but when you make suggestions she gets offended that you don’t like her suggestions. What should have been a great experience turned out not to be and Its deeply saddening.

I have learned so many new techniques and skills as a performer, recording music and as a singer as well from Kait. She has taught me the techniques for all styles of music from Broadway to Jazz. I have also learned the etiquette and tricks for recording music. She is an amazing singer, performer, instructor and friend and I would recommend her to anyone who has any interest in these skills.

Kait is part intuitive, part miracle-worker and all music and voice! She was able to take our daughter – whose older siblings said couldn't even sing 'Happy Birthday' – and work with her to achieve a Broadway-style range and capacity to belt out a song that no one in our family ever expected. Kait's ear and sense of what's possible in a voice is uncannily good. She can find the positive attributes in anyone's voice and build on them. Our daughter is now a confident, uninhibited singer and performer, thanks to Kait!

I have been through so many teachers. Some good and some bad. Kait is the vocal teacher you hope to find on that journey. Not only is she a phenomenal singer, she has a great talent for understanding what you want/goals in a lesson. She knows the voice and I think that is the strongest quality in a vocal teacher. Thank you Kait, you are wonderful to work with.

Kait the BEST vocal instructor ever! Supportive, kind, professional, intelligent, and creative, she has helped me in so many ways as a singer and performer. I've gained an incredible amount of experience in just a few months with a show, a CD from the performance, and two recordings under my belt. I wish I had lessons with her every day... I enjoy them so, SO much! I was lead to her studio by a close friend who had tried three instructors previously, and finally discovered Kait's incredible talent. She is the cream of the crop in the Salt Lake area and far beyond, I'm sure.
