Kat Stephens

I am a qualified Speech Level Singing Teacher, certified by Seth Riggs to teach Speech Level Singing(SLS)™. I am totally passionate and dedicated to encouraging and empowering my students to fulfil their full potential, and achieve their goals and ambitions. I want all my students to enjoy singing and performing, with their own unique personality and style.
I teach both individual and group lessons from my home studio, and at schools around the country.
I have had to overcome some serious vocal problems myself and that experience is my best teaching tool, because I can empathise with my students and help them to find a solution to their problems.
Prior to turning my focus to teaching, I have performed in Jazz, Cabaret & Musical Theatre settings, sung as a featured soloist in big bands, quartets, and duos as well as writing and recording my own material. I still perform in concerts and in a jazz band.

“Kat is an amazing teacher.  She makes each lesson really fun.  She always smiles and says encouraging words.  What I enjoy most about having singing lessons with Kat (Aspire) is the skills she teaches you to hit a whole range of notes that you would never hit on your own. I have absolutely loved my time working with Kat and recommend it to anyone interested in singing for pleasure or for a career – she really is an inspirational teacher” – Lauren Flower
