More about Kate



I enjoyed my Dialects class with Kate DeVore; it was eye-opening to learn about the small details that change between dialects. She created a space that encourages play and mistakes to move our mouths and voice in this new way.  I also appreciated the direct approach when I wasn't hitting the mark. Kate's a wonderful teacher and someone who I hope to work with again.
