I teach a variety of types of vocal technique, all grounded in one simple philosophy of unification of the voice. The breath being the beginning of any exercise, we work through breath flow in all aspects of the voice so your instrument is free and open in every aspect.

A Denver, CO native, Tom K. is a baritone classical vocalist, a current masters degree student, and bachelors degree recipient of the University of Denvers Lamont School of Music.

Experience

Voice Teacher
Sep 2012 - Present

University of Denver

Taught voice lessons to non-major students of the university who are interested in furthering their vocal abilities and knowledge without getting a degree in the field.

Private Voice Teacher
Mar 2009 - Present

Tom K. Studios

Private lessons for most vocal styles. I provide a positive, encouraging, and challenging environment that allows students to grow and see achievement in their work. Focusing on foundational aspects of the voice and maturing those skills, like vowels and vocal consistency, are my top priorities.
