Alicia Keys, if you’re reading this…
Did you know that Biography.com thinks of you as an actress and a pianist before they think of you as a singer? That disturbs and offends me on your behalf and I’d REALLY like to help you fix that.
You are a gifted singer and songwriter who has been misguided by a voice teacher who is allowing you to damage your voice. I’m sure he’s wonderful otherwise. Really, I don’t know the guy and he might make a mean casserole and kill it at trivia. See, you aren’t just a brilliant singer and songwriter, but you also stand for some incredible causes and you have a huge following. Your platform is as immense as your talent, so it’s vital I reach you with this information. When you perform live, it pains me to see you struggle to get through even just one song without displaying vocal fatigue. Actually physically pains me. This is because I can’t stand to see singers struggle with something so damaging when I know I can help them permanently fix this problem.
I should introduce myself. Hi, I’m Katti, a contemporary vocal coach on a mission to help singers like you who are struggling with hoarseness, vocal fatigue, and constantly needing things like vocal rest, steroid shots, or the odd hot toddy, get the tools necessary to sing as loud as you want and as long as you want without feeling any pain. I take singers from hoarse to healthy.
I’m the kind of coach that prevents voice loss permanently, only without compromising your singing style. Because what is the point of a healthy voice if you sound like someone else? My background is similar to that of your current coach, only I’ve learned to treat my classical background as just that – a background, a ground zero that allows me to advance to more difficult contemporary singing much easier.
This is not just fan mail, but an offer. A humble plea: I would love one hour with you to clear up the misinformation you’ve received, and give you some tools that will help you to never, ever lose your voice again. I want to show you that you can sing every song on each of your many albums back-to-back all day long at full performance voice and never lose your voice or even feel the tiniest bit fatigued. I want to give you the confidence to go out there knowing you can kill it without worrying about saving your voice or anything else. I want you to never have to cancel a show, a recording session, or a speaking engagement. I want you to be able to Sing Without Limits. And all I need to help you do that is one hour of your time.
If you’re out there reading this, Alicia Keys, I’m starting a campaign to get to you. I’m recruiting everyone I know and everyone they know to help me have an hour with you. So, if you start seeing #HireMeAliciaKeys out there, it’s me doing the asking. One hour for a lifetime of your voice in its perfect form. What do you say?
I can sing higher again and I’m more confident in my belting abilities, as well as my breath support!
No joke, Katti Power is a complete and utter bad ass. She’ll turn you into one as well if you give her the chance.
I’m really not sure where I would be without you. You have given me such confidence in so many areas and have given me the skills to take my performing to the next level.
I believe you can always improve your craft, so for the past few years I’ve been working with internationally acclaimed vocal teacher Katti Power.
Thank you, Katti. I’ve learned so much from you; no words can express my gratitude!
I’m so excited – I got the role I told you I was called back for (the initial audition consisted of a monologue and my singing “That’s Rich,” which I had worked with you in my VIP session)! Thank you so much, Katti, for your training! I’m thrilled, and will continue to make the efforts to sing without fear and apply the proper technique so I can sing without getting fatigued.
Katti is an unforgettable voice instructor. I came to Katti when I was 18 years old because I wanted to improve my musical theatre sound. I had absolutely no clue how to belt before beginning [Unlimited Vocal Health™] and when I graduated from Circle in the Square Theatre School in New York City four years later, I was the top belter in my class. The more lessons I took the more my confidence as a singer and an all around performer grew.
I’m singing songs I did not think I would ever be able to sing!
Katti Power is bar-none, hands-down, one of the very best voice teachers out there. I’ve been singing for 23 years, and have had several teachers over the years, from NYC to LA. Many of my teachers have been good, but I learned more in one lesson with Katti than I did several months with other teachers.
[Katti] is the best singing coach I've ever had. I love working with her because she's so supportive, she has such a great ear, and she can get to the heart of any of my problems right away. She's positive, very knowledgeable, and most of all - one of the biggest reasons I would highly recommend Katti is that she's a great human being.
I had the honor of working with Katti right before the Talent Quest National Competition. In only a few short lessons she had me miles above where I started out. Her methods help you stretch your range while keeping your vocal health. She continuously helped me get better each time we met.
Katti is BRILLIANT!!! I never thought I would be able to belt, but I was definitely proven wrong! Thanks to my ONE LESSON with Katti I have just landed a role in “Shout! The Mod Musical” and will be healthily belting my face off!
Katti…helped me realize that my voice will always be there, and I just need to trust that it knows what to do. The biggest change was our work with how forward my belt is going. I had learned how to do it before, but something wasn’t clicking for me to keep it forward. Katti listened to my fear about having true power in my voice and allowed me to have a safe place to start the work to let myself be heard. I ended up belting a note I had tried to… belt for 10 years!
Thank you so much for believing in me and for helping me become who I am today… You changed my life Katti.
I’m most excited to know the difference between legit and belt voice and practice choosing how to sing and speak intentionally in a way that is healthiest for me.
I feel like I finally learned the secret of singing I’ve been looking for all my life! I always felt like my teachers didn’t quite “get” my voice and there was something either I really wasn’t getting or they really were not teaching. Now I know what it is! Thank you Katti!!
Now that I have had that hour session I know how to overcome my straining and relax my throat when singing up high. The way Katti teaches, the illustrations she gives, and the exercises she uses help me to understand in a way I’d never thought about before…Knowing how quickly she fixed my problem, I feel extremely confident that she would be able to help anyone else…
I use to think my voice just couldn’t sing certain notes in certain ways, but that is completely false! I wish I had known these techniques back when I was struggling and performing every day. And knowing how to sing in my uncomfortable areas without hurting my voice is amazing. I feel like I could sing almost anything now!!
