Teaches students:
Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:
January 2009

At just 6 months old my mom discovered me humming “Silent Night”. By age 2, I would sit in the bathroom, holding aloft a Reader’s Digest from which I would “read” aloud, belting gibberish at the top of my lungs. Needless to say, my mother quickly enrolled me in the children’s performing group “Sunshine Generation”, since then its been 23 years of singing, dancing, acting, playing piano, playing guitar and playing the ukulele non-stop.

I love music and I love teaching! I have been studying the subject for decades now, two and half to be exact. First, in private lessons with wonderful teachers, then in Junior High, and High School. Then I entered the realms of college at Citrus, Riverside City College and received my Bachelors Degree in Commercial Music from Brigham Young University. I am a music composer. I write music, lyrics, and score to Film/TV/promotional videos. I am currently on iTunes. I am loving and caring about the students I teach. I've had experience in teaching individual lessons to over 100+ students, singing with touring jazz orchestras, pop/rock groups and directing choirs.

Music is a lifestyle, and it is the lifestyle I love to live. If you want to learn your music skills, let me teach you! Im super fun and I will help you get to the next level! Thanks for reading this, I appreciate it. Don't you feel like you know me a little bit better?

*** Lesson Details ***
If you take lessons with me, you can expect progression! This takes top priority in my mind. It is very important for my students to know that I encourage keeping track of their progress on their chosen instruments. Setting goals and reaching them can be very satisfying! I recognize that every student has different skill levels and I will teach to the style that they best adapt to. One final note to add, they will be loved!

*** Specialties ***
Many genres excite me, however, I excel in Pop, Jazz, R&B, Classical, Country, Contemporary Christian, Broadway, and Singer/songwriter.

Katie is the best ever! My daughter really loved her teaching style, even though my daughter was really shy, Katie made her feel confident and comfortable. Katie really loves music and you can really tell that she is very sincere and great at what she does. So glad I found the best guitar—hopefully future voice instructor after guitar lessons!
I will highly reccomend Katie. She is an Awesome Guitar Instructor.
Thank you for checking in with our experience!

Katie is just the instructor that my daughter needed! She is encouraging, kind, patient and very knowledgeable. Not only can she play the guitar, but she knows how to teach it. She took a very personalized teaching approach to help my daughter be successful at guitar. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn guitar.

Katie is a wonderful teacher, very kind patient, and helpful when it comes to the individuals specific goals/learning needs. If your looking to learn piano, you can't go wrong with Katie. :)

She is motivating and hopeful about your ability. She told me "I believe everybody has a voice. Like 99.5% of singing is courage." Not only that but instead of following a set lesson plan she works the lesson around you and the specific techniques you need or even want.

Mr.

Years ago I majored in guitar at USC, and I taught it for years as well travelled around the world performing. I am particular with my daughter's teachers. Katie is great. She's knowledgeable, relates to my daughter well, and she sounds great, which is why we picked her in the first place!
