Working with Kayla is an absolute joy as everything she teaches has far-reaching effect. My singing has become much more natural and effortless after applying her principles. I heartily recommend her as a vocal coach for singers of any age or skill level.

We offer vocal technique and performance training specializing in musical theater, cabaret, pop and country. Most of our students are performance-oriented teenagers, though we welcome all ages from 8+. We also work with adults of all levels, from beginners to actors preparing for an audition, to the recording professional.

Our goal is for singers to develop a solid grounding in vocal technique and a joyful confidence as performers. Elements of vocal technique include breathing coordination, vocal strength and relaxation, resonance, beauty of tone and musical/dramatic understanding. We honor each singer's unique spirit while working to further develop their ability to make powerful emotional choices with their songs. In learning to become more present in every moment while singing, students grow as people and as sensitive artists who love their craft.
