Hello, I’m Katy.
I am a singer, teacher and creative located in Maui, Hawaii. I am a graduate of The College of Idaho’s liberal arts program holding a bachelor’s degree in music with an emphasis in vocal performance, and minors in biology and psychology.
My love for the performing arts began in childhood through training in dance and vocal performance. I gained experience as a soloist singing in regional musical theater and opera productions, academic programs and competitions. Professionally, I have worked as a cantor for various religious institutions, organizing and leading music for weekly services and special events. My experience as a studio recording artist began in singing backup for children’s music albums and blossomed into solo work, assisting in harmonic arrangements and performing lead vocals for albums in various genres, including classical, pop, musical theater and Celtic music for DiskEye’s Productions at Sony Tree International Studios, Nashville. I have also worked as a commercial model and actress, and in children’s entertainment, performing as beloved fairytale princesses and training other performers.
My diverse background and ever-growing training in vocal arts and pedagogy helps me to be the best teacher I can for a wide variety of students. Most recently, I participated in the Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s Vocal Pedagogy Professionals program and the Vocal Arts Festival in Colorado Springs, CO, continuing my education in technical training, Alexander Technique, yoga for singers (I am RYT 200 certified), performance anxiety management, and acting for singers.
As a teacher of singing and lifelong learner, I find it imperative to continually improve myself and grow for my students’ enrichment. I believe the best lesson that can be taught is how to take initiative over your own education. I believe that everyone can sing and I would love to help you reach your vocal goals!

Outside of singing and teaching I love to read and spend my time in nature, practicing photography and poetry, which I post on my blog. My husband, Zack, and I love to explore, hike, garden, try new foods and bake together. Our vizsla, Rosie, is the center of our universe.
