Email: [email protected]
Kait has been teaching singers of all ages and abilities since 1997. She has taught in public schools (K-12), colleges and universities and privately in San Diego & Los Angeles, CA and currently in Salt Lake City, UT.
She has owned and operated The Performer Studio (a non-profit vocal arts school) since 1997 and since then, has coached singers in a large variety of musical genres and performance situations.
As a teacher, Kait’s focus with each student is to help them understand both the anatomy and health of their vocal instrument while helping them tap into their very best sound in an engaging and fun way. Breath support, vocal range, tone, placement and color are all explored
Kait: “Every singer has their own beautiful strengths as well as occasional stumbling blocks. It is my passion to help them identify those, understand them and then move blast through them. Singers are complex people with complex instruments, and no matter what our expertise level, the DESIRE to sing is something to be protected and nurtured.
I value honesty, discipline and detail work in the singing studio. I find those three things, meshed always with a genuine sense of fun and playfulness, are key to helping singers unlock and develop what makes them unique singers and artists with something gorgeous to say.”

Kait is the most amazing teacher. She instills confidence in all of her students. She helps people to find their voice. And she’s a lot of fun. She always makes me feel better about my abilities. She is absolutely the best!
Kait works to bring out the possible best in a person. She provides constructive criticism when needed but also makes you feel you are learning and progressing under her instructions. She took a shy, quiet person and turned him into someone who is learning that it can be fun to perform for live audiences and how good it feels to express a talent you always wanted to share with others but were not sure you had it in you to do so. I greatly love and respect this teacher.
We love Kait she has been great with our daughter and really gets the best out of her.
Kait is part intuitive, part miracle-worker and all music and voice! She was able to take our daughter – whose older siblings said couldn’t even sing ‘Happy Birthday’ – and work with her to achieve a Broadway-style range and capacity to belt out a song that no one in our family ever expected. Kait’s ear and sense of what’s possible in a voice is uncannily good. She can find the positive attributes in anyone’s voice and build on them. Our daughter is now a confident, uninhibited singer and performer, thanks to Kait!
