About Me

I am from the wonderful city of New Orleans where music is as big a part of life as breathing. I began playing flute at the age of nine and later, while in high school, began playing oboe as well. I attended Loyola University New Orleans and earned a degree in Music Therapy. While in attendance, I studied flute, oboe, guitar, and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach students on an individual basis and work with them at their own level and pace. I am not a strict teacher, but I do expect my students to practice. During lessons, we will work on all aspects of the instrument and theory, including things such as rhythm, intonation, dynamics, counting, note reading, sight reading and embouchure.

For the first lesson, I strongly encourage students to bring all of the music that they own so we can try to work with what they have. This helps me gauge the student's level. If you have no prior experience or do not own any books, that is perfectly fine.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Music stand, guitar foot stool

*** Specialties ***
For flute and oboe, I focus on classical/baroque music. When teaching guitar, I have a more eclectic style and play both classical and teach anything from folk songs to pop songs.

*** Lesson Details ***
Members of my studio are always at the top of their game. With a mix of challenging material, effective practice techniques, and a great deal of fun, I push my students to help create their own musical paths. For beginners, I equally emphasize fundamental pedagogy, music theory, and artistry, in a variety of musical styles. They learn correct breath control, posture, and sound production to facilitate good habits to last a life time. After 6 months, my students have always improved 10-fold, exhibiting confidence on performing, self-evaluation, and independent musical discovery.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room equipped with music stand, keyboard, instrument stands, metronome/tuner, computer for recording and listening, and other resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my instrument and certain copies of exercises. Students should have their own instrument, music, pencil, music stand, etc. Metronome and tuner preferred. Voice students must have a keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
Gordon method-sound before sight, learning to hear music and create a beautiful sound and using reading and theory skills to enhance musical growth.
Chamber Music-learning to play with accuracy and nuance and learn musical roles in various pieces of literature.
Regular Warm-up/Technique Practice- establishing routines for students to focus on development of their voices or instruments in addition to the performance based literature, may include tone exercises, scales/arpeggios/chords, dexterity exercises, breathing, etudes, etc. Includes lots of pedagogical knowledge so students can have very focused at-home practice
Recording- lessons and practice sessions can be valuable to a student for self-evaluation and getting the most out of lessons to really hear what a teacher is suggesting after the fact.
Duets and other ensemble playing in the lesson to give the student to relax and not feel under pressure.

About Me

From the moment Kat was tall enough to reach the keys she made so much noise on her family’s piano that they eventually bought a kid-sized version to keep in her room. When Kat turned 7 her family got her the best present ever; lessons with an amazing piano teacher.

Kat also began to study flute several years later and soon realized that music was the life for her. She majored in music in both high school and college graduating with a BA in Music from St. Norbert College in DePere, Wisconsin.

Kat has had a very diverse career in music. From a full time private music teacher to the Musical Director of a Burning Man Opera, to the Section Leader for a Youth Orchestra, to the keyboard player in a Theatrical Heavy Metal Band, Kat is always thrilled to stretch her wings and try new things.

Kat has taught over 100 piano and flute students in her career. She currently resides in San Francisco, CA where she performs in two professional rock bands, works as the musical consultant for Blue Scorpion Dance Theater, and the composer for Wily West Productions, as well as continuing to teach private piano and flute lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a ridiculous sense of humor. I believe in stickers, high fives, and celebratory fist-bumps. And yes, that goes for the adults as well.

I always looked forward to my lessons because they were so fun, even if I knew I hadn't practiced enough. That is exactly what I try to create for every student I work with.

Besides the humor, I customize lesson plans to fit you. Not just the types of music you want to learn, but HOW you learn. My number one goal is that you completely understand what you are learning. I don’t mind in the least if I need to explain a new lesson 10 different ways – we will work together until you really get it! Understanding what you’re doing makes it so much more fun.

Have a favorite song stuck in your head, but the sheet music is still too hard? No problem. I’m happy to write the song out for you at your own level. I want you to enjoy yourself, and if that means Lady GaGa then I’m happy to oblige. I will probably stick Mozart in when you’re not looking just to make sure you’re learning a lot of different things, but that’s what teachers are for.

Of course we cover fundamentals and start with the basics. I typically incorporate music theory and ear training with your lessons as well . In 6 months on piano, with regular practice, you will be comfortably reading music and playing songs you enjoy with both hands AT THE SAME TIME! (Gasp!) On flute in 6 months you will also be able to read music comfortably, will no longer feel like you are about to drop the flute at any given moment, will have a solid range of notes and have a solid feeling of control while you play.

I look forward to sharing music with you!

I make music interesting to learn. I encourage students to practice daily so they can improve. The more they improve the more fun they can have with music not only alone, but with others.

I am very patient with my students especially with beginners. I know that for them it is like learning a new language. Once they begin to increase their musical vocabulary, they will enjoy what they can do with music.

As for teaching, I taught flute for 2 years for the beginning winds class in high school and also helped the flutists in the Wind Ensemble when I was in college, at San Francisco State University. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Classical Flute Performance.
