TEACHING

Caitlin's way of teaching helped me redefine what confidence looked like as a performer.  She helped me correct and improve my technique and it has made a world of difference. I feel much stronger and far more capable than I had in previous learning environments.

Philosophy

Caitlin’s number one priority is to promote and strengthen the student’s unique voice with proper vocal health. Caitlin’s holistic approach addresses the entire body (breath, balance, vocal anatomy and physiology), mind (music history, theory, languages), and spirit (authenticity and mental health related to performance). Since each student is different, Caitlin works to engage students in their specific interests and musical goals. Private students can expect to learn:

 

  • proper vocal production

  • basic music theory

  • new repertoire

  • varying vocal styles

  • foreign language pronunciation (if desired)

  • stage presence
