Katie Coffey is a vocalist, vocal instructor, and performance coach based in Rancho Santa Margarita, in south Orange County, CA. She provides voice lessons to people of all ages and abilities. While Katie’s specialty is musical theater, the techniques that she uses can be applied to any genre of music.
Katie has been singing all of her life, and started performing on the stage at a very young age. She earned a BFA in Musical Theater from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. After four years of solar deprivation, she came back home to sunny Southern California, set up her studio, and has now been teaching for nearly 20 years.
"I believe that each of us has a musical voice. I believe that we often have preconceived ideas of what our voices should sound like, and those ideas scare us out of using our voices to their full potential. We put layers of manufactured sound on top of our natural gifts, not realizing that to a less critical ear (and no one is as critical as we are to ourselves), each of us has a sound all our own, that deserves to cultivated and heard. When you find confidence in your own voice, it is amazing what you can make happen.
I am committed to helping my students find that confidence."
