Let's make music fun!! One of the most important jobs as a music teacher is to develop a lifetime love of music! When a student enjoys piano, then practicing is much more fun! What kind of music would you like to make? If you interested in learning chords, improvising, or studying traditional piano, consider me as a potential teacher! I have developed material (including PDF jazz and blues arrangements, hymn arrangements, familiar songs, and Christmas music) to engage students in music!
Kathryn holds a M.A. in music and a B.A. in music business/vocal performance minor! In addition, she studied classical piano (Anderson University), opera (Anderson University), and jazz piano (Ball State) with professors from Ball State and Anderson University! Kathryn has been teaching since 2006!
