WATERVILLE, Maine, May 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Katherine Brown is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Music. Katherine is the Owner of Noteworthy Vocal Studio.
Katherine Brown was born into a musical family. Her father, a professional jazz guitarist since the age of fifteen, was courted by Hollywood, but turned them down to marry and begin a family. He then chose to spend his life playing professionally in the state of Maine, teaching guitar lessons at a local music store, and directing a youth choir at his church. Following in her father's footsteps, Katherine's passion for music led her, at the age of thirty-six, to open Noteworthy Vocal Studio.
At that time, she walked away from a sure career in nursing towards an uncertain future with no guarantees so she could embrace her musical roots once more. Working tirelessly, she dedicated herself to creating a viable, self-sustaining business. Her goal was, and remains to this day, to mine, develop and help students market their musical talent using best pedagogy practices and in doing so pass on her musical heritage to the next generation. With forty years of performing experience and eighteen years of teaching experience she is secure in her ability to do just that.
Specializing in vocal pedagogy, performing arts, teaching and creative writing, Katherine's achievements also include the following awards: 1980 New England Music Festival Solo-Ensemble Division I Ranking, 1980 National School Choral Award, 1979 Maine All-State Music Festival Division I Ranking, 1978 Maine State Solo and Ensemble Festival Division I Ranking and 1978 MMEA Solo and Ensemble Festival Award.
Katherine's voice training comes from years of private instruction, but she acknowledges that her business savvy was learned along the way making her the self-trained professional that she is today. She takes pride in and attributes her studio's success to her keen ability to build interpersonal relationships. Her philosophy is that everyone learns differently. "You have to see the person sitting right in front of you…study the human being first, and build from there."
In reflecting on her years of teaching, Katherine conveyed many fond memories, but the ones that resonate with her the most are the times she spent working with the underserved youth from The SEED School in Washington D.C. and The Summer Dreams Program in Boston at her Manitou Mosaic Creative Genius camps. "There's something magical that happens when you watch music level the playing field so that previously invisible youth suddenly become visible to the world. It doesn't get any better than that!"
Prior to her music career, Katherine studied at the Maine School of Practical Nursing. Her future goals include entrance into The National Association of Teachers of Singing, adding online webisode education to her current available services, and Katherine is most excited about a new internship program she is developing designed to instruct existing students on how to teach vocal pedagogy and performance, and how to run a music business. It would provide those who are interested in the program with real-time learning opportunities to teach and gain invaluable experience, even before they move on to secure their degree in music. Once their higher education is complete they would then have the option of returning to Noteworthy to become part of Katherine's nationwide teaching team, using her strong brand as a springboard to launch their own teaching careers.
