About Katie S.

I'm a passionate teacher, author, educator, musician, performer, producer and liaison. I have received considerable accolades for accomplishments from numerous stellar and exclusive media outlets such as CBS, Southlake Style, CW33, DFW Child, The Dallas Observer and Voyage Dallas as well as others. I'm an expert in my field and offer the highest rated services and opportunities in the industry. I have taught some of today's biggest pop stars including Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, and am currently teaching around 50 lessons a week to students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. I'm the official DFW talent scout for American Idol and have launched students to appear on AGT, The Voice and major record labels including Hollywood records and Capitol Records.

I'm the founder and producer of the glamorous singing and dancing group "The Starlite Girls" who perform for fans nationwide as well as locally. I'm also a professional vocalist and currently perform multiple times a week in Downtown Dallas.

My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun. You'll learn everything from the anatomical understanding of the voice, to connecting to the feeling of the music including style development, vocal theory, vocal technique and performance. Students learn how the voice functions and all the tricks to get the sound they want to produce. Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique, discover their unique voice, build their confidence as a singer and more.

Lessons are offered both ONLINE and at the exciting and creative Starlite Studio in the heart of Downtown Dallas.
