Kati Hendricks was born singing. At age 5 she toured with one of country music’s biggest acts and appeared on TV almost weekly on the Lewis family Gospel Hour In Atlanta, Georgia. She also appeared on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour in New York. At age 7, she recorded her first album and was considered the youngest recording artist in the country and she regularly appeared on the Buddy Starcher show in Charleston WVa.
She’s considered a bit of a prodigy herself playing six different instruments, piano, organ, guitar, ukelele, drums and accordion. As she continued to perform, she realized the gift she had to teach her vocal technique and positioned herself as a critically acclaimed voice and performance coach who has helped nurture, develop and fine tune some of the world’s greatest singers of all ages.
Kati attended Columbia College where she studied psychology and music. She also has an extensive background in private training with renowned vocal coach Dr. Rachel L. Lebon (voice specialist, author, and educator who toured worldwide with Tops in Blue. She is Professor of Classical, Commercial and Jazz Voice and Musical Theatre at North Texas, Belmont College and the University of Miami and author of The Professional Vocalist and The Versatile Vocalist) as well as world-renowned vocal coach Gina Maretta ( a well-known Miami voice coach, Soprano, La Scala, milan and master of the Aureliano Pertile technique, who at the time was also coaching Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Steve Perry, and Jon Secada). Kati was thrilled to be accepted as a part of Gina's vocal studio.

KATI HENDRICKS HAS WORKED WITH TALENT FOR MAJOR NETWORKS,
BUT HER PASSION IS TAKING AN EVERYDAY SINGER & MAKING THEM EXTRAORDINARY!
“When I met Kati I was 13 years old. I was playing 4-5 shows a week. I was screaming over guitars and drums and was singing completely wrong. I was on my way to doing real damage to my voice. One thing I struggled with most was singing high. I LOVED singing songs like Turn on the Radio by Reba, Listen by Beyonce, and Alone by Heart, the only problem was I was singing incorrectly and was not able to sing the songs I wanted to without it hurting. When I first started working with Kati, I worked with her several times a week. Right off the bat she asked me what my favorite song to sing was, I said Listen by Beyonce! We started working on that song right away. Kati's technique is very unique in the sense that there is no unnecessary vocal exercises. Everything she has you do has a purpose and hits a different part of your voice to help you have a seamless, blended range that is strong and powerful! Kati stresses the importance of eating healthy and staying extremely hydrated to keep your voice healthy. This is also something I take very seriously as a vocalist. I am incredibly grateful for Kati's guidance and her vocal technique that changed my life. I am finally able to enjoy singing and am able to sing anything I want!"
“For the majority of my life, I have been a drummer. I've dabbled with guitar here and there, and tried my hand with various other instruments. I recently began playing with a group down in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. These guys encouraged me to begin singing and writing songs. I'll admit, I was nervous to let people hear me sing at first. With training from Kati Hendricks, I was able to break past the initial fear of people hearing me sing, as well as begin to make improvements on my abilities. These days, I sing with confidence, and accuracy that I never would've gotten, had I not decided to put my trust in her."
"Kati Hendricks is an amazing vocal coach! Sharing her heart and expertise, she encouraged me to fully embrace my voice and know what my instrument is truly capable of. Since she has been my coach, my range has increased from 2 octaves to 5 octaves. Katie’s technique “the blend” has completely enabled me to reach new levels of freedom, range and ease. Kati has also challenged me to explore new genres of singing, and has proven to me anyone can sing anything they want as long as they have the technique. By far the best voice technique and vocal coaching I ever received.
I recommend Kati to ANYONE looking to understand their voice, develop their capabilities, and get ready for auditions in a genuine, supportive, professional and positive environment."
