About the Author

Kat Baum, a South Dakota grown singer, songwriter, and storyteller, uses her background in teaching & performance to offer residencies that combine language, poetry, music, & performance tailored to fit any age and nearly any subject. From her 12 years of teaching an array of different subjects to students K-college, Kat understands the Common Core Standards. Her program complements and reinforces them, and it can follow the theme of any current lesson if desired, small or expansive; for example, “Rhyme Schemes,” or “Poetry.” Kat also co-facilitates The Sounds of Healing, a women’s retreat that combines music, writing, yoga, and meditation to discover one’s true potential. Directing this retreat gives Kat the experience necessary to easily adapt her residency for adults and senior citizens, making it insightful for them. Kat leads participants through various writing exercises with relevant material and activities for each age and ability level, and she infuses her performances and stories periodically to help every participant explore language and its rhythms
Kat recently moved into a studio above Nonna’s that will soon be home to Inner Voice Studio.  She plans to use this studio to teach yoga, meditation, dance classes as well as all kinds of workshops from Reiki, to massage, to writing and music.
