Kate Regan is a musician, performer, teacher and Interactive Designer with several decade’s experience as a performer and more than 15 years in the field of educational products and curriculum design. Originally a Suzuki violin student starting at age 5, Kate branched out to singing beginning with chamber chorus, then a capella groups and later rock bands. During her 4 years at Brown University she regularly performed with two different groups. In California, following a M.A in Education from Stanford University, Kate became a regular on the San Francisco music scene, as both a session singer/electric violinist, and as front-woman of her own rock trio. In Madrid she has distinguished herself as founder of “The Mad Sing-along”, a bi-monthly singing event just as much for those who believe they “can’t” sing as for those who “can”. She believes group singing is one of the most joyful, deep, timeless activities and has made facilitating it one of her main goals in life.
Kate's unique voice comes out both in her compositions and in the unexpected ways in which she uses her instruments: for example plugging in her violin, distorting it and strumming it like a guitar, looping one instrument and playing another on top, or playing her cello on her lap. That said, she has also been known to put on a suit and play some lovely Bach at weddings.
In addition to the violin, she plays guitar, ukulele, cello, several toy instruments and also some piano and electric bass. When she can bear to put down her instruments, she studies for her level C1 in Spanish and works on retaining her elementary level Chinese Mandarin skills.
