 Voice and piano instructor, Kristen Keymont is a soprano from Massachusetts who relocated to the Pacific Northwest in 2015. She holds a B.M. in Music Education from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, as well as an M.M. in Vocal Performance from the Longy School of Music of Bard College. Since arriving in Tacoma, Kristen has been active in the musical community, including singing with the Symphony Tacoma Voices for their 2017-2018 season, Tacoma Opera in their 2018 production of Carmen, Bellevue City Opera’s 2016 production of Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, and Puget Sound Concert Opera 2016 production of Puccini’s La Rondine. She has also been an avid supporter of local recitals, premiering Seattle composer Kam Morrill’s new works as part of the Wayward Music Series, as well as participating in Voices of Resistance, a benefit concert with all donations going to the American Civil Liberties Union.  As a vocal teacher, Kristen has four years of experience under her belt, teaching across all ages. She emphasizes a sensation based approach to teaching, allowing students to really feel the way their voice functions and apply their technique to any genre. Though classically trained, she has a love for all styles of music, including indie rock, musical theater, contemporary, jazz, and popular music. Students will learn how to embrace their individual sound and explore a clear, healthy vocal production, while performing repertoire that they are passionate about.      Teaching Philosophy:  I believe that my job as a teacher is simple - students should acquire a  love and appreciation of music, and more importantly, a love and appreciation for their individual  voice. I want all students to find pleasure in singing by finding a technique that allows them to  sing healthfully, clearly, and confidently, in any style that they choose. I do this by guiding each  student to find technique that helps them gain flexibility and strength in their voice, just as you  would while training any other part of the body. I treat singing as an athletic event and  encourage my students to pay close attention to their bodies and the way that they feel, rather  than how they sound. Singing is an extremely athletic, incredible, and difficult thing to do, thus  making it extremely rewarding. I speak about the the complexities of singing as an event  honestly, but also help them learn to let go of any insecurities that they may have in their sound.  Singing is a journey, and I am here to guide them through it as best I can.     Fun Fact:  She is currently in a performance put on by the Tacoma Opera called  Lucia Di Lammermoor  which is sung in Italian!
