Katie King

Class: Jazz Vocal Workshop

Who knows why we are drawn to certain things in our lives, but never the less we are and we end up at certain points, and this is my story of singing and teaching.
I had no choice but to sing.
Coming from an extremely musical family you find yourself on stage at 3 three years old and just think that it is the norm, everybody grows up like this right?
Well, that is what I used to think as a child anyway. Music has always been a safe haven for me something that I personalize and love, it is because of this that I love to pass on my knowledge from my musical life through teaching singing.
Studying the great American songbook singers of the passed is what I do, they communicate to me in a way that reaches the very soul of me.
I have sung Jazz/blues professionally for over 30 years, and I have taught for over 20 years. I teach voice and beginning piano, I have taught at SCC, Jazz Vocal Workshop, for the last 17 years, and have 6 CD’s recorded to date.

I believe the more people that sing in this world the better place we can make it – spread and share the love:)
