“Kates gentle pressure and flexibility as a teacher has not only drastically improved my piano playing, but it's made me a stronger, more intuitive, enthusiastic musician.  As an actor, I'm more confident in auditions where music is a factor, and I've been able to add 'piano' to my list of skills.” ~ Ben Fitch, Actor and Student

“… She also let me be free enough in my choice of musical interest to discover my own creative abilities in music. I love to write songs and create, and she recognized this in me and let me express it.” ~ Geneva, Former Student

“Kate was an inspiration to me because she continued to work on her own musical growth. She released several CDs while I was her student. I enjoyed listening to her compositions and appreciated her musical talent.” ~ Sheila, Former Student

“Her teaching depth and experience speak for themselves. Her musical knowledge is very diverse and she is talented and inventive. Along with all this, she is very easy to work with. She is smart, dependable, and resourceful.” ~ John Hosking, Actor, Vigilante Theatre Company


I have taught music privately for more than 20 years and specialize in teaching intermediate and advanced piano, composition, and songwriting. I customize lessons to fit individual student’s ability, temperament, and learning style. My aim in my studio, is for my students to develop a life-long love of learning music and to flourish as artists.  I am passionate about music and thoroughly enjoy teaching students of all ages.  I look forward to working with you.

I am an active composer and recording artist. I have released 6 CD’s of my original piano compositions, the most recent one in the spring of 2011. I have also collaborated on several other recording projects with my family, and have an active performance schedule. Music is my passion and I continue to express myself through teaching, composing and performing.

A note about lessons ONLINE with Skype: Video lessons work best with people who are over 16 years old.  You can learn to play the piano, compose songs or make music from the convenience and privacy of your own room!!! For ONLINE lessons you will need a computer with internet access, a camera and microphone that can see and hear your piano or keyboard. A newer laptop is ideal, as you can reposition easily. I need to be able to see your hands and hear you play!
