Teaching since:
April 2004

Raised just 30 minutes away from America's Entertainment Capital, Hollywood, California I have always had a draw to the performance spotlight. I started singing at the young age of 5 and since then, have received training from some of the world's finest instructors, including Tony Award Winner Lisa Seegmiller. I studied music vocal performance at Southern Utah University on a full scholarship with emphasis in opera and musical theater.

Some of my vocal accomplishments include first place winner in musical theater/classical divisions of the National Association of Teachers of Singing competition in 2005 and 2009 Las Vegas chapter. I made my first television singing debut in 2003 when I was invited to sing the National Anthem at the Paradise Bowl. I have also sung with both the Orchestra of Southern Utah and Southwest Symphony as a soprano soloist in their performances of Handel's Messiah.

My love for the performing arts has given me the drive to teach what I love to others. I opened my very first studio over 12 years ago in Southern Utah while attending Dixie State University. I have since opened studios in Las Vegas, Kansas City area, and finally in 2014 Austin, Texas. In 2011 I was hired as the resident music director for Kids in the Round theater company until May 2013. My students have been cast in lead roles at many regional theater companies across the country as well as projects for TV and film. My young students are regularly cast in lead roles in their middle school and high school productions and selected to be apart of chamber choirs and selective performance groups.

Come and join my studio! I'd love to teach you!

Kiki T and her training have completely changed the course of my life. Through her training I developed a voice that is better than I could have ever dreamed possible. She is a magnificent teacher. If you're really looking to sing seriously, Kiki T is the teacher for you.

Kiki knew exactly what to teach me to make the biggest difference with my technique right away and she didn't hold back. I am an advanced student yet we still saw huge changes immediately. I feel she has been as great a teacher as anyone I've ever taken from, if not better. She's very clear and very bold, and also builds confidence at the same time.

Oh, how we wish we could keep Kiki here in St.George!!!! My daughter had the opportunity to take lessons this summer for Kiki again, (Both my girls sang for Kiki some years ago before she moved to Texas). Kiki is a fantastic and exceptionally talented teacher and singer. Fun and easy to understand while explaining theory and technique to her students. My daughter has developed so much just this summer singing for Kiki, and her technique has improved a lot. We can highly recommend Kiki as anybody's voice teacher, she truly is AMAZING!

I take vocal training for my two children and I must say that K'Shae is brilliant. She is not just a teacher, but very attentive and gets the best out of my children. She has received many vocal accomplishments and is a good teacher to take training under. Her passion and enthusiasm towards music is very visible. Her lessons are not just for money and rather a service.
My kids are doing very well and they have achieved correct vocal techniques. Best music teacher we have had.

What a great person!
Kiki is not just a singing teacher she is a wonderful person. We noticed her love for music since our very first meeting when we contacted her for our extremely shy, 10-year-old daughter. Her attitude is simply amazing and she has been able to create a friendly relationship with our daughter, who now is eager to attend her lessons. Kiki has helped our girl a lot, not only from a “vocal” point of view but also gave her a lot more self-confidence. So glad we met this angel.
