Katie-Anne’s teaching philosophy has been centered around creating a community within the choral ensemble where students feel welcome, respected, and safe to explore their vocal instruments together. In addition to proper vocal technique, Katie-Anne’s approach to teaching voice has students exploring the anatomy of their vocal instrument and the pedagogy behind healthy singing.
Throughout her BMus, Katie-Anne performed a number of leading roles in operas such as Menotti’s The Old Maid and the Thief, Amahl and the Night Visitors, Haydn’s La Cantarina, Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, and Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
