I've been teaching the piano for over 35 years and my students have gone on to CCM, NKU, and one has become the music director of IHM. I specialize in classical as well as the chord approach which leads to improvisation. I use a variety of method books and have them to loan out. Having found that each book has its good and bad aspects, I pick the good from each method and use it with my students. I have the following tools available for your lessons: piano, keyboard, guitars, amps, and midi recording devices. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Margaret
I have taught the piano along with guitar and voice for over 40 years, since I was 16 years old. I started lessons at 9 and continued lessons while I began teaching beginners at a music studio. Since then I have had many different experiences with all kinds of students. I love sharing the gift of music with my students. My goal is to give them a wonderful musical experience and allow them to expand their knowledge of music in a structured manner and can grow to become a casual or professional musician.

*** Lesson Details ***
I adjust my teaching style to the students goals. I like to sa
y I am laid back but do expect progress each week. I can teach the piano for beginner to advanced students. Some students are college bound and need to learn the disciplines of music. Other students just want to learn to play for enjoyment. My main goal to to keep them interested and practicing. I use a composite of different methods depending on the students goals. I have found that each publisher of method books focus on different styles of music. Over the years I have picked the best of each one and we will use the best of the best. I also have edited music for students over the years and have a wide collection of supplemental music. As an example I love Disney music and a beginner after 3 months they will be learning "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. I can teach beginning Guitar students. My specialty is teaching to read "real" music as opposed to tab. Beginners need lots of TLC with the guitar because of the length of time it takes to make "good" sounds of the guitar. Learning good technique in a fun way is essential for good student progress.

Also I can teach beginning-intermediate vocal lessons. My main focus is developing proper vocal technique with vocal exercises and breathing techniques and still making it interesting and fun.
With all of this, i also teach music theory. Whether by itself or along with instrumental lessons, music theory is an essential for all musicians. Music theory is the how and why of everything we do in music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I currently have a baby grand, a spinet piano, 16 track sequencer, performance digital piano, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar, flute, music stands and keyboard stands.

*** Specialties ***
For the piano I use a mixed method of teaching depending on the students goals. I have used Schaum, Faber, Alfred, Thompson and Bastien. I also use Hannon for advanced students and Duvornoy, Alfred and other types of pedagogy for technique and exercises. I have also edited many pieces of music for early beginners to have fun with. Disney is my favorite. I use these supplemental pieces along with the method books to keep their interest in practicing.

Katherine is excellent, especially for someone who is either a beginner and also works extremely well with people like me who have had vocal injury and are trying to get back on track. She's all about technique first -- which you have to know and know well before you can sing opera, power metal, punk -- whatever. I've learned so much from her and worked so well with her in just this short time I've been with her. She's amazing!

I started teaching piano lessons as a senior at the University of Texas in 2011. My students range in age from 5 to 13 years old, introductory to intermediate playing levels.

I have an extensive background in music theory including classical piano training, contemporary guitar, years of choir, and personal voice coaching.

I have a special ability to work with young and inexperienced students. I am the perfect teacher for a student that is just being introduced to the world of piano. I am also a great teacher for those students who have a light background but are just starting to be re-introduced to the piano.

Both of our kids (8 and 6) have been taking lessons from Kate for several months. Our kids started lessons with no experience and have made great progress in a short amount of time. Kate has a teaching approach that has been well received by our children. Kate ensures the kids remain challenged week to week while still having fun. We are lucky to have found Kate and highly recommend her if you are looking for a great piano teacher.
