A creative, flexible approach to learning viola! We will focus on technique and sound, while also learning whatever style of music (classical, pop, soundtrack, theatre, bluegrass, etc) the student is interesting in playing.

I graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2015 with a Masters of Music, and the University of Michigan in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music. My teaching experience includes private and group lessons, from beginner to advanced ages 5-adult. I have worked with New York City teaching organizations that included Harmony Program, Opus 118 Harlem School of Music and Ethical Culture Fieldston School. My personality is engaging, warm, patient and open-minded, and my teaching style is flexible, creative, dedicated and fun. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! :)

Katie was exceptionally patient and encouraging with my five year old daughter. She was a major asset in teaching my daughter the basics of violin - including proper stance and note formation. I could not recommend her enough.

Katie was a wonderful violin teacher for my son (four years old at the time). Katie knew how to make learning music and the violin fun through games and various activities. She was attentive and patient, kind and encouraging. She worked with us to allow him to participate in the annual recital--she played a simple, beautiful song while he plucked an open string. She is reliable, accessible, and caring. Couldn't ask for a better, more qualified, and dynamic teacher than Katie to facilitate a positive musical experience a young child.

I greatly enjoyed my violin lessons with Katie. She improved my violin technique, encouraged me to tackle challenging solo pieces, and helped me prepare for youth orchestra auditions. She also guided me in producing video recordings for my college applications. On top of that, she is extremely patient and cheerful. Katie is the best!
