ABOUT THE TEACHER:
Kim started singing at the age of five and hasn’t stopped since! In 2006, she graduated from Simpson University with a B.A in Music (Emphasis in Voice) where she was classically trained, studied Opera and continued on with Musical Theater. She has since had the opportunity to utilize this degree in her private vocal instruction, directing, musical directing, after school music instruction, and (her greatest passion) performing on stage.
Currently, Kim is also working in the world of “Voice Acting”, TV/Film and continuing work as a Singer/Songwriter. Here she has been able to actively take on new areas of creativity and enjoys sharing what she’s learning with those interested in diving into these same fields. In addition, she’s always excited to work with anyone for an “audition prep” lesson and/or “character development” for a casted role.
Although Kim has performed and professionally studied voice over the past 20 years and has over 10 years of teaching music/voice, she still feels there’s always more to learn. She has created a well rounded style that can be flexible to each student’s individual needs. Her heart and passion will always be in Musical Theater teaching, but there is always a place and an emphasis for all genres of music. By adding some influences of “Speech Level Singing” techniques to the student’s study, the idea is to give the singer (no matter what genre or experience level) the opportunity to discover their full vocal potential and open the mind to new ideas. She thoroughly enjoys learning from and working with all ages and experience levels, but her passion is with any age that is a beginner to intermediate level.
