She continues to write, arrange and record as a freelance singer, and has appeared as the featured vocalist with groups like Children’s Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury.

Kait: "My goal with each student is to help them to become the very best they can be as singing performers. But in addition, I aim to lift their spirit during the time they spend here, so that when they leave for the day, after the work they've done, they feel better, more inspired, more empowered and more confident and driven than they did when they arrived at my door. Teaching and watching my students evolve as both artists and people is thrilling! I have the honor of watching them find themselves through music while they build truly lifelong friendships with the performing peers they meet here...they end up finding some of their 'kindred spirits' in life here, and THAT is golden."

Student Advisory Board (SAB)

Non-Profit Board/SAB Liason

The Performer Studio's Student Advisory Board was first formed in 2013 when a few students proposed some ideas for future studio concerts. It became clear that TPS was moving in a new direction, one that went  beyond honoring student's ideas and rather calling them forth. Since it's inception, the SAB has chosen all subsequent Tribute Concert themes, including storylines, based on what was and is meaningful in today's ever-changing world.
