Kaye DeVries holds a BA in Music and Psychology from Chapman University. She has studied with Zo Hau Rosnay, Edna Garrabedian, and Caterina Micieli. Kaye's personal teaching philosophy is rooted in her belief that everyone can sing. She says, "It is a matter of discovering the student's personal voice and developing it by working on technique and through various styles of music."

With over thirty years of experience teaching private voice, Kaye has been a choral director for fifteen years. Kaye performs with the San Francisco Opera, the San Jose Symphony and Opera, the Marin Opera and Symphony, the Portland Opera, the Carmel Bach Festival, the Oakland Symphony, the Modesto and Fresno Symphonies, and in community concerts for Columbia Artists. A well-known Bay Area singer, Kaye has been a finalist in both the Metropolitan Opera and San Francisco Opera auditions, and has performed throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and South America.

Beyond music, Kaye is interested in beekeeping, gardening, cooking, and travel. She has been to over fifty-three countries. She is a native of Los Angeles and a current resident of Cupertino.
