    About MeContact Me
    Katy Webber grew up in Everett, WA entertaining everyone around her until she came home from preschool one day and announced she was going to be shy. At 9 she picked up the guitar and not knowing any chords, wrote her first song, “The Hungry” by plucking the three highest strings repetitively. When her parents grew tired of hearing only one song, she was placed into guitar lessons when she was 10 and played on and off for several years. She got into choir beginning in the eighth grade and continued all through high school as well as being involved in a couple summers of musical theatre at the Everett Theatre and a few months with the Seattle Girls Choir. When she was 16 Katy sang back up in a crazy hippie psychedelic band lead by Lee Howard, they did one show at the Everett Auditorium and then unofficially broke up.

    Katy found Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle at 14 when she read that her heart throb Brendan Fraser, went there for theatre. “Wow, a school for the arts!” She thought. “You mean I can get a degree in music and not take any math classes?” Little did she realize at the time how much math there actually is in music. But despite theory she did indeed graduate from Cornish in December of 2003 earning her Bachelors of Music degree or BOM.

    She had the privilege of studying with great musicians such as Jay Clayton, Jovino Santos Neto, Randy Halberstadt, and Julian Priester. After Cornish she began singing jazz all over the Seattle area, appeared on Seattle Channel 21 on Kevin Joyce's Big Night Out, performed in Nelson Sings Nilsson with Sean Nelson, found vaudeville and British Panto at Oregon Country Fair and Seattle's Moisture Festival as well as entertaining at children's birthday parties and weddings.

    Currently Katy works as an Early Childhood Music Teacher with Seattle Parks, Phinney Ridge Center, and several preschools around the Seattle area. She now performs as Jazzmyne McKaye (www.jazzmynemckaye.com, website still a work in progress), continues to perform British Panto with the Fremont Players as well as being a part of the writing committee for the group and writes music for herself.

    She has been joyously teaching private lessons for 10 yrs to ages 12mo - 65 yrs young.
