"My students will be reminded that music is magical. Music is an emotional outlet, an absolute healer, and should be experienced through the filter of our feelings."


about kathy

Kathy Sees had a love for music as a child that put her on a path that finally led her to where she is today. In 1999, she earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Akron, focusing on music education and voice. During that time she was a member of the Concert Choir and University Singers under the direction of Dr. Samuel Gordon and was given voice lessons by students of Mary Schiller and Clifford Billions.


Ten years after graduating, Kathy returned to the University of Akron to begin a Master’s degree in choral conducting under Dr. Gordon. She also continued her vocal training during those two years with Dr. Frank Ward. This much needed return to music after having three wonderful children, and after too many years not being surrounded by music, was only the start of a completely life changing journey. Kathy was motivated to start teaching private piano and voice lessons, which she has now been doing for the past fifteen years.


For the past fourteen years, Kathy has been performing as a soprano and soloist with Dr. Gordon’s choir, Singers Companye, and now his newly formed chamber choir Vox Mix. Vox Mix most recently collaborated with Urban Troubadour for a tribute concert for Morten Lauridsen entitled This Shining Night. Through Singers Companye she connected with Alexandre Marr, completely changing her musical world, filling it with the opportunities of her dreams. Under Alexandre’s direction, she is a soloist and pianist at Church of the Western Reserve and a soloist for Fairmount Temple’s High Holiday services, most recently held at the famed Severance Hall in Cleveland, Ohio. Kathy has also performed as soloist on the stages of BLU Jazz+, Night Town, Akron Civic Theatre. She has performed alongside songstress Diva Pat Harris as background singer and conductor for performances at Cain Park, The Bop Stop, and on the CWR Concert Series.


Kathy has a passion for musical theater and has played in countless professional orchestra pits throughout NE Ohio most recently including A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (Porthouse Theatre, 2023), the regional debut of The Prom (Porthouse Theatre, 2023), and for Cabaret (Kent State University, 2023).
