She continued on to deepen her understanding of vocal technique in college while studying diction and vocal pedagogy. She received her degree in music education with a concentration in bass trombone from the Greatbatch School of Music at Houghton College and studied instrumental conducting in graduate school at Houghton as well. She directed several ensembles at Houghton such as the Houghton College Wind Ensemble, the Houghton Philharmonia, and the pep band. Currently, Kylie is a teacher at Sand Hill-Venable Elementary.

In the summer of 2016, Kylie had the opportunity to be the musical director for the children’s musical, “How I Became a Pirate,” collaborating with Asheville Creative Arts. She also instructed at two summer music camps, including the pop/rock camp at the Asheville Music School, as well as the Black Mountain Center for the Arts “Summer Spectacular Arts Camp.” Kylie is honored to be an outreach ensemble and music instructor at the Asheville Music School to cultivate her musical path even further.
Lessons With Kylie
Kylie takes a holistic approach to voice lessons. She urges her students to look at the study of voice as a process and a way of life. Lessons with Kylie are positive and encouraging so that the singer may be comfortable to explore their own unique voice. She enjoys teaching ear training and theory to provide a deeper understanding of musicianship as required by the student. A typical lesson will involve reinforcement of proper vocal and breathing technique, an exploration of music theory, and working through repertoire that was chosen by the student. She is open and experienced in many styles such as classical, jazz, broadway, and rock, and uses classical and non traditional methods to help students to achieve their musical goals.
“Kylie took time to explore my goals and tailored the lesson strategy to my needs. She was well prepared, skilled and has the credentials to deliver a quality lesson that will challenge you at the pace you desire. As an adult learner, I’d recommend her to anyone looking to get the most out of their lesson time given a busy schedule!”
