Vocal students at KTE are encouraged to chose their own songs and repertoire to sing. Kate personally guides the song choices to fit musical development such as voice projection, vocal tone, breathing techniques and vocal range. Kate believes that every singer has a unique and beautiful voice and it is her job to find, capitalize and enhance that distinction. This is not just any old vocal lesson. Kate teaches the foundations to singing and brings the student along on a performance coaching journey. She teaches the student to sing like a star. The focus moves from singing technique, proper posture, and how to find character and emotion in song lyrics. Singing requires a mind, body and spirit connection to the material and Kate guides her students effortlessly through every aspect. It is highly likely that lesson goers will come away feeling empowered and more confident than ever as a singer, performer and person!
Guitar students at KTE are taught one-on-one with a blend of both modern and traditional techniques through guitar tablature, sight reading, rhythm technique and songwriting/composition. Students are encouraged to chose their own songs to learn to keep them inspired and engaged. Kate creates personalized lesson plans each week to accommodate the needs and progression of the student. Students just starting out are given short melodic scales, taught first position chords and songs as well as some theory. Intermediate students will be given advanced material of these techniques to perfect these skills and are encouraged to begin composing original material. Kate always provides clear demonstrations and instructions for the student so they are secure and confident with how to approach the given material. Prepare to have fun! Kate knows how to bring the rock and fun to her guitar teaching sessions!
KTE Studios offers beginner-intermediate piano as a means to help students understand musical foundations and theory. The student will learn all major and minor scales, key signatures, how to read music and how to play their favourite songs. As with every music lesson at the studio, the student choses the song that they want to learn. Kate can modify the lesson and song depending on the skill level of the student so they always get to play the songs that they love! Finger accuracy, speed/agility, scale and key signature knowledge and sight reading are heavily prioritized in piano/theory classes with Kate.
