Hello! I am thrilled to welcome you to Kaiser Flute Studios. Private music lessons are a lot of fun and I can't wait for us to get to know each other!

There are a few things you can expect of me as your music teacher. You can always expect me to respect you and your time. Respect is very important to me. I ask that you also respect me, my time, and my home.

You can expect me to come prepared for your lessons and to be attentive during your lessons. Your lesson time is our time to work together and I will never give you less than 100% of my focus. When we are in the studio, my attention is yours.

You can expect me to be non-judgmental and open-minded and to always listen to your questions and concerns. I want my studio to be a safe place for your to express. You can talk to me about anything, even if it doesn't relate to the flute. Your thoughts, feelings, and concerns are important to me..

From you, I only expect that you will come to your lessons prepared every week and ready to learn. I ask that you communicate with me freely. I want to know what is going on in your life outside of music lessons. Please never be afraid to ask a question or make mistakes. My studio is a non-judgmental place!

Private Instructor
Jun 2006 - Present
Kaiser Flute Studios

I have run a successful private studio since June of 2006. My students learn much more than the flute--we work on other music skills, such as music theory, but more importantly I like to help them develop skills that will be necessary in the real world of adulthood (things like responsibility, punctuality, and curiosity.). Students from my studio have won local and state-wide awards and competitions and many have gone on to study music at the collegiate level.

Athens Community Music School

The Athens Community Music School is an organization run by Ohio University that offers private instruction to students enrolled in local middle schools and high schools. During my time with ACMS I taught private flute lessons and music theory. I assisted students with band music, prepared them for local and state-wide competitions, and assisted with collegiate auditions. As a music theory instructor I prepared students for collegiate placement tests and worked to give them a broad understanding of music theory.

Flute · In studio

When my son Charles approached me asking to take flute lessons I was skeptical. Our family is not musical and I had no idea where to begin the search for a flute teacher! Fortunately, Katelyn was teaching a friend of Charlie at the time and allowed us to come in and observe the lesson before we jumped in to flute lessons. Her rapport with the students and the bond she works to build with them is amazing. Charlie learned so much more than the flute during his time with Katelyn--she encouraged his creativity in all aspects of his life and helped him build self-confidence during hard times. Charlie is no longer playing the flute but the things he learned with Katelyn continue to help him in his daily life.

Flute · In studio

Katelyn taught flute to my daughter Elizabeth through all of high school. She began in ninth grade and Katelyn helped her excel in her band program, at solo and ensemble festival, in all-state band and orchestra, and eventually in college auditions. Elizabeth is now a sophomore at Ohio State University where she majors in music education and we don't believe she could have done it without the gentle encouragement and support of Katelyn during her high school years! Music lessons are a great investment in your child's future and we would recommend them to anyone!
