Is it hard to learn a musical instrument? That’s usually the first question people ask. My answer? Not at all! I teach music in three easy steps: Speak, Read, Write. "Speaking" music simply means learning to listen and play your instrument. Reading and Writing are what allow you to pick up your favorite piece of music and learn it on your own, just like reading a book. Whether you want to play in a concert hall or in your living room, I will give you the knowledge and technique to help you make music a part of your life.
The best part of my job is watching my students make new discoveries, learn songs they never thought they could, and develop a relationship with music that will last a lifetime.
My son enjoyed his lessons with Kathryn. She taught him at his pace where he enjoyed music. He enjoyed piano while he was with her.
I hold an MM in Voice, summa cum laude, from UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music, and a BA in Music, magna cum laude, from Luther College with minors in English and Education. My training in education includes Orff, Kodaly, and Dalcroze methods, as well as Alexander Technique. As a singer and harpist I have performed around the United States and the UK, including at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
