History of KPCA

Katherine Park Deakin founded KPCA in 2015 as a place to foster the highest order of artistic growth in the arts, with the mission that music is for everyone, everyone is welcome to learn music here, and a focus on mentoring womxn and young womxn in Bay Area music community. She began teaching private lessons while in college, soon realized that none of the music schools she taught at had a woman founder/director, and she decided to be one. Katherine draws on her professional experience as a versatile classically trained singer who performs as a choral soloist, cabaret singer, musical theater artist, songwriter, alternative rock singer, and actor. Katherine Park teaches at KPCA and San Jose School of Music.
