Biography

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.

Philosophy

"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."

- Katie Coffey

"I have been working with Katie for about 10 years now. She has helped me with my abilities to sustain my breathing, and has truly developed the potential she saw in me from the beginning. Despite my protests to practice or do anything else, she has stuck with me to where I am willing to do her wonderful at-home vocal-training practice without complaints. Because of Katie, my voice has developed so immensely that I am acting as leading roles in musicals. This was purely because of my strong song pieces which Katie always helped me prepare. Much more recently, I was given the opportunity to sing in my high school's chamber choir. I wouldn't have been able to get anywhere near where I am now if it wasn't for the continual help I've received from Katie.

If anyone is looking for a good vocal coach, now is the time to stop looking."
