Kristen Stetzer has been passionate about music for as long as she can remember and began
training at the age of 13. While in high school, she won an honorary scholarship to study at the
Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University, giving her a head start as an undergraduate
music major. She currently studies vocal performance at Wheaton College.
Kristen has toured across the US and Europe as a soloist and a choir member. She won the
National Association of Teachers of Singing tri-state competition in 2017, and placed second in
2018. She has performed in operas and musicals since she was 12 years old, and sang with the
Nashville Symphony Orchestra as a high school senior. She now teaches a children’s choir at
Gary United Methodist Church in Wheaton and has taught voice lessons since 2016.
As a performer and a teacher, her vision for her students is that they learn to sing freely,
understand music theory, and develop their musical interpretation. She teaches each of her
students to reach their full singing potential by relaxing tension in the voice, allowing them to
explore their own unique sound.
