Kate Riegel - Singing Tutor
Kate has been involved in CCMT since moving to New Zealand over 10 years ago. She has performed in workshops with Sam Haft, Dean Carey, Jamie Irvine, and Jason Robert Brown. She has primarily been working as a singer-songwriter for the past four years. Having released three studio EP's, Kate spent last year in London performing, and recently finished a tour of the United States including shows in LA, Chicago, and NYC.
Kate appeared in the 2015 New Zealand tour of The Buddy Holly Story as Vi Petty. She also featured in the 2014 Comedy Cabaret at the Blue Baths. Over the years she has been in a wide variety of productions with Auckland Music Theatre, Dolphin Theatre, Theatre of Love, and the National Youth Theatre Company.
As a music director, Kate has worked with children and teenagers through NYTC, Variety Voices (The Children's Charity) Choir, and ACG Parnell College. Her experience also lies in tuition as a freelance voice and piano tutor, as well as six years of tutoring mathematics. Kate is very excited to be coming back to CCMT this year as a tutor.
