Musical Theatre Audition Techniques

Kimberly States

Kimberly was born and raised in Medina, Ohio. She received her Bachelor of Music degree from Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio. While at Heidelberg, she had the opportunity to study opera in Italy and Germany during her summers. After graduating from Heidelberg, she moved to Boston, Massachusetts, and received her Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music. Kimberly remained on the East Coast for several years. She worked in non-profit fundraising and management during the day and sang opera by night.  

After several successful performance seasons, Kimberly decided to return home to good old Medina to share her knowledge and love of music with the next generation. Kimberly has had the pleasure of serving on the faculty of Ashland University and the College of Wooster. She now devotes her time to her own business and serves as music director for several local youth theatres.

Kimberly opened KS Vocal Studio in 2017 and now teaches over 50 private students at her Medina Square location.

Music has always been the center of her life. She is honored to have the privilege of sharing this passion for music with young and old alike.
