A Chat with Kathleen Westfall Voice Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Kathleen has her Doctorate Degree in Vocal Pedagogy - she’s a specialist. Her students have a strong understanding of technique, which gives them the artistic freedom they desire. They know how to take what is in their hearts and put it into their musical performances with passion and excitement.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Lessons begin with 15 minutes of individualized vocal warm-ups where I teach healthy singing technique (low, silent, natural breathing, posture, etc.) that we then apply to 1 or 2 songs of your choice (bring lyrics or music). I create individualized warm-ups based on the singer’s unique goals.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always enjoyed helping people. I decided to become a voice teacher. Voice lessons help people: -do what they love -gain confidence in their abilities -develop their talent to the fullest extent -express their unique voices -breathe deeply and develop self-awareness and focus -be creative!
What do you love most about your job?
It is wonderful to help people have fun singing and doing what they love. My singers understand and apply healthy technique, so they can sing with ease. The outcome is passionate and authentic musical expression. I truly enjoy working with singers of all ages, styles, and levels of experience!
