Teaching since:

The Violinist Katie is a Classically Trained Violinist and has played as a virtuoso soloist and as the first Chair in the Philharmonic Orchestra for over 40 years and is celebrated for her musical versatility as well as her dedication to musical youth programs.
She has played with the Philharmonic Orchestra in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and New York. She is the proud Owner of Guitars-N-More, LLC for 5 years now. However, on May of 2017, she closed her store in Atlanta, GA and August 21, 2017, moved here to Buffalo, NY to concentrate on private Instruction and spreading the love of music to all ages.
Her individualistic and passionate teaching style is infectious to all who know her. She has forged a very tight relationship with Rozanna Weinberger owner of Rozanna’s Violins in the Upper West Side of New Your City. Rozanna is not only a close friend and mentor but, also her Teacher.
Katie can Play 15 instruments but, her go-to instrument is the Violin. She has been playing the Violin since the age of 10, Cello age of 13, Upright Bass & Viola age of 15, and the Piano since the age of 17. She is also a String Lither and can repair and fix all stringed musical instruments.
All her instructional programs are original and specifically made for each individual student. Additionally, she has created 3 instructional courses and has written 5 books on Musical Theory, Violin, Ukulele, Tablature reading, and Musical Notation.
She teaches the String Builders, Watch N Play, and Essential elements programs as her core. The best thing about Katie's teaching method is she loves to make learning fun! Her motto is “If it isn’t fun then it isn’t worth doing!”
