I started my formal music education at just three years old. That early education was invaluable in training my musical ear, and I now have excellent pitch. I started my extensive training in vocal performance at the age of 8, and have been trained in classical, opera, and musical theater in both legit and belt/mix. I have performed in over 30 musical theater productions and two operatic productions. Some of my favorite credits include La Carlotta (Phantom of the Opera), Eliza (My Fair Lady), Mrs. Potts and The Wardrobe (Beauty and the Beast), The Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), and Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte).
As a youth, I performed with the Utah Children’s Choir and Pleasant Grove Jr. High’s choir. I then went on to perform with the award-winning Pleasant Grove Chamber Choir while in High School, and the BYU Women’s Chorus in college. I competed in NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) from 2008-2014 and placed each year in both Classical and Musical Theater Legit. In 2013, I competed in the Classical Singer Competition in Boston and placed in the top 10 in the nation. In 2011, I was asked to perform in the Tour of American Young Artists to China. I performed in Beijing, as well as several outlying Chinese cities.
As well as singing, I am an accomplished flutist, and I enjoy playing the piano. I love to draw, sew and craft during my free time. I played Volleyball in high school, was on the swim team, and I absolutely love horseback riding.
I have an outgoing personality, and am excellent at helping others feel comfortable. It is my goal to not only help you learn to sing, but also to feel comfortable performing for others. I absolutely love singing and performing myself, and I am excited to help you reach your musical potential!

Mikayla has been wonderful with my daughter, she has enjoyed working with her. Mikayla is easy to reach and is in excellant contact with us.
Looking forward to to continuing to work together, 4 stars because of video trouble not because of Mikayla.
Mikayla was a very kind and knowledgeable teacher. My daughter had a negative experience with a past voice teacher, and was very nervous about taking another singing class at all. Mikayla eased her fears and she is again eager to participate in voice lessons. Thank you so much!+ Read More
My son really enjoyed it! Mikayla got him right in to polish up his vocal solos for Lion King! He learned a lot in just two lessons!
I sang in choirs in Jr High and High School but never had vocal lessons one-on-one. I wanted to try something new and something that I enjoy. Mikayla has made my first vocal lessons a great experience! She takes the lessons at a nice pace. It's a good balance of not overwhelming you but at the same time pushing you to improve. The lessons have been really fun and instructive.+ Read More
My daughter takes voice lessons from Mikayla and she is loving it! Mikayla is really great at helping others feel comfortable with her upbeat personality! She makes it fun but also expects her students to do their best! She is incredibly talented and I consider it a great opportunity for my daughter to learn from her!+ Read More
Mikayla is not only a brilliant vocalist herself, but a phenomenal instructor as well. Her teaching style is a healthy blend of personal and professional, and she demonstrates superior knowledge of vocal and musical techniques. Mikayla excels at discerning and understanding her students’ needs — I am always impressed by her preparation and efforts to tailor each lesson to my progress. Her friendly, upbeat personality facilitates a “safe zone” where learning to sing is not only comfortable, but fun! I highly recommend Mikayla Batschi to anyone looking to increase their artistic arsenal!+ Read More
