About Katie

I've been playing music since I was 4 years old! I started out on piano, but found my passion when I began learning horn. I was lucky enough to have many teachers who loved music, and my family (all musicians!) have always been supportive and encouraging! I made All-State twice in high school and was ranked 11th in the state of Texas my senior year. After getting a performance degree at the University of Texas at Austin, I began teaching private music lessons in two school districts. I currently have 20+ students in my studio ranging from age 11 to age 18. I love ALL of my kiddos! I affectionately call them my "duckies" because I feel like a mother duck teaching my babies to swim on their own!

As a teacher, what I want most for my students is to teach them how to become self-motivated and to establish healthy practice habits that will continue to help them grow and learn even when they stop taking lessons from me. The key factors to achieving these thing are fundamentals (scales, lip-slurs, long-tones, etc.) and ear-training (being able to hear a tune and sing it, hum it, write it out). All the best horn players I know practice to hone those two skills EVERYDAY! I have patiently taught these skills to my studio and have seen the results. Many of my students have become the top students in their horn section at school and won spots in the highest bands. It doesn't happen over-night, but hard work WILL pay off, many times far more than natural talent. Give me a hard-worker who is ready to learn, and I will give you my best.

I can offer tutoring in French Horn, sight-reading, ear-training, music theory, and music history. I look forward to teaching you and cheering you on as you learn!
