Kate is a knowledgeable, kind and patient teacher. She's been teaching our kids guitar and piano. She knows how to motivate children, is knowledgeable about music and continuously reminds them about the importance of core skills. She also encourages them to have fun by learning their favorite songs. We noticed a huge development in our kids since she's started working with them. We highly recommend her.
Kate is a great teacher! She is very positive and encouraging and customizes lessons to fit each child and their learning style. She obviously loves teaching and loves children! Our kids love her enthusiasm and have all progressed quickly under her instruction. The only music teacher our kids have been eager to have lessons with!
Miss Kate understands the development process. I’m shocked with the talent she has brought out in our daughter. She is patient and encouraging! She knows the big picture and really tailors the sessions to help the students shine in their strengths and uses exercises to strengthen and elevate their skills. As a professional athlete I would consider her skill and intuition as top notch. We are so grateful she is in our life.
I listen to them play or sing first. Then I make an evaluation and assign a curriculum accordingly.
For complete beginners I work on scales and technique and simple pieces.
