As a professional musician for 25 years, Katya has toured extensively with a number of bands and recorded 5 albums. Most recently, she formed her own gypsy swing band, Moscow Drug Club. As a vocal coach, she divides her time between private students and running choirs, incorporating the basics in breath control, proper vocal techniques, developing vocal range and focus on lyric, performance and confidence.
Ian Towers, a professional pianist and singer, has played for many years for all types of engagement ranging from pub knees-ups to society weddings, and splits his working life between live performances, teaching piano and accompanying.
