Personal Statement

Kate Baker’s talent lies in her unique abilities as a voice teacher. Using highly developed vocal instruction methods, Kate specializes in the development and restoration of the voice, especially the abused voice. Having personally overcome a damaged voice, she has dedicated herself to the study of vocal therapy and contemporary technique for the past 25 years through training and performance.

Kate is a master in vocal pedagogy, beginning with the Art of Bel Canto to the Masters of Voice Science. She enables students to develop the most up to date contemporary music singing technique. As the mind and body is the instrument, the influence of Alexander technique, yoga and Feldenkrais methods are intertwined. Your instrument will increase in range, sound will become free and resonant and tone will develop with colors and dimension.

As one of the most sought after teachers in the business, Kate has a large student base of professional vocalists. Kate Baker offers private lessons and workshop intensives in vocal technique and repertoire development in her studio in New York and West Orange, NJ along with Skype for out of town students. She currently coaches several singers under major record deals along with American Idol stars, Grammy Award winning artists and Night at the Apollo winners.

Kate also teaches privately at The City College of New York and The New School University of Jazz and Contemporary Music. Kate has been invited to present her vocal workshop in an affiliated program with the New School in Italy. Her position as a vocal clinician has led to invitations to conduct master classes at major institutions throughout the United States and Europe. Since 1996, Ms. Baker has often teamed with fellow singers and educators Sheila Jordan and Mark Murphy in co-led master classes.
