Overview

My name's Kayla and I'm a voice teacher/actor/singer/dancer from Portland. I've got 16 years experience in the performing arts under my belt. I can teach all vocals styles : Classical,Jazz,Musical Theatre,Rock and Metal. I specialize in Rock and Metal vocals with an emphasis on vocal safety and technique. I'm also available for acting coaching and audition preparation. I also offer my opinions and an inside look into the performing arts whenever I can. With a couple years of touring under my belt and several professional shows as well as my experience in film, I hope that I can help to answer any questions you may have about choosing this as a career. Looking forward to working with you! - Kayla

Kayla is very informative and descriptive about how the body works in producing sound. She not only showed technique but also gave some easy tips on how to improve. Best of all, I finally understand how a raspy sound can occur without damaging the voice! This is a thing I've found difficulty in finding online, in a way that does not damage your vocal cords. All in all, a fun teacher and I recommend her, especially if you like rock/metal as she seems to have a great knowledge of this form of vocals.

Kayla is very thorough and knowledgeable. She made sure to finish the lesson, even going over a minute or two. Look forward to my next few lessons.

She is very knowledgable, helpful, and personable but not the most punctual. She knows how to communicate her knowledge in a way that is easily understood.

Totally awesome instructor. Kayla has been very helpful in finding out how to turn my weaknesses into my strengths with my voice. Very good advice, works with the material I want help on. I highly recommend working with Kayla if you are serious about improving your vocal skills!

I greatly appreciate Kayla's teaching style. I have a huge lack of confidence around my singing ability and Kayla's strong and forward instructions has gotten me past being bashful with my voice. She is a great instructor with an amazing voice and it inspires me to simply sing along.
