She has an extensive education and performance background including a MMUS Performance degree in Jazz Vocals from London College of Music at University of West London, UK, with honors of distinction where she completed her dissertation on Vibrational Sound Therapy and Vocal Toning. Kim is currently working on her PhD in Vocal Performance with a research emphasis on Vocal Toning and Distinctive Resonant Tones of Vocal Harmonics to not only enhance the singing voice, quality of performance, but more importantly contribute to improving overall health and well-being.
Throughout her singing career, Kim has witnessed the power and influence the singing voice can have over its audience and over the singer alike. As a Vocalist, Vocal Instructor, and former Rehabilitation Counselor, she is driven to shine a brighter light on the subject and practice of therapeutic vocalizations, and quality toning for not only sound performances but moreover for health and healing.
Kim's vocal toning work is rooted in the extensive and tested work of renowned musicians, sound healers, and medical practitioners including Laurel E. Keyes, Otto Haddad, Dr. Diane Austin, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, Mantak Chia, Bobby McFerrin, Dr. Fritjof Capra, Shira Hunt, Dr. David Frawley, Ted Andrews, and Russill Paul, among others. Their work has resulted in healing ways including helping students and clients lower stress and performance anxiety, dissolve tumors, improve mental clarity, repair broken bones, build confidence, and uncover our true voice. Working in the tradition of vocal toning for health, Kim enjoys helping her students discover their own unique ability to use their voice not only as a performance tool, but more importantly as a healing tool for self and others.
