Teachers at the Old Town School

Kathy Cowan

Voice

Kathy meets each student where he or she is in terms of his or her artistic development. She provides a challenging but safe atmosphere for the discovery of the voice, while guiding the student with technical and artistic advice to develop his or her own voice and style.

Kathy gets down to basics and cleans up students’ technical problems. She starts her students on breathing exercises then moves on to focus, support, relaxing tensions, then applies these techniques to song interpretation. Kathy toured for five years with Kiltartan Road, a band she formed with Joseph Sobol to perform his "In the Deep Heart's Core," a cabaret of the life and work of William Butler Yeats.

Kathy has completed Masters work in Voice Pedagogy. She has a BFA in Music and Theatre.

Education: MA in Voice Pedagogy, BFA in Music & Theatre.

Started at the Old Town School in January of 1989
