Bio

After playing the flute and piano on my own for seven years, I began my classical music education at the age of sixteen with international soloist Jun Kubo. Only a year and a half after I began my studies with Jun Kubo, I was accepted into The College of New Jersey for a Bachelor's program in Music Performance where I studied with David DiGiacobbe. While at TCNJ, I performed my own programs in Mayo Concert Hall, featuring soloistic works by composers such as Nielsen, Hoover, and Takemitsu. I...

After playing the flute and piano on my own for seven years, I began my classical music education at the age of sixteen with international soloist Jun Kubo. Only a year and a half after I began my studies with Jun Kubo, I was accepted into The College of New Jersey for a Bachelor's program in Music Performance where I studied with David DiGiacobbe. While at TCNJ, I performed my own programs in Mayo Concert Hall, featuring soloistic works by composers such as Nielsen, Hoover, and Takemitsu. I also had the pleasure of performing with the TCNJ Opera, Chamber, and Symphony Orchestras. I went on to perform with the NYU Symphony Orchestra and participate in the NYU Chamber Music program where I have played with a Trio, Quintet, Sextet, and flute ensemble. I have participated in masterclasses with performers such as Trevor Wye, Min Park, Gary Shocker and Bradley Garner. I currently run my own teaching studio Wisconsin where I teach music theory, woodwinds, voice, and piano. I have obtained my Bachelors from The College of New Jersey in music performance, and my Master of Music degree from NYU, where I studied with Bradley Garner. I also taught at a music conservatory in Springfield, NJ, where I taught Woodwinds, Piano, Voice and Music Theory for about 5 years and helped prepare students for auditions, competitions, and evaluations.

I use a very supportive and positive teaching style. I believe that music lessons should be a way to help build self esteem as well as show students that they are capable of great things! I always incorporate music theory in my lessons. I think it is vital that students understand at least some music theory in order to understand what they are learning and why. I do think fundamentals are vital for every instrument, but I also think it is important for students to learn pieces and genres that interest them as well.

I am always excited to meet new students and share the joy of music!

Patient and pleasant demeanor

Kathleen is a wonderful flute teacher for my 15 year old. She is patient, knowledgeable, and has a pleasant demeanor. She is highly organized and prepared for each lesson. Lessons start promptly on time and homework is provided for the next lesson. One thing my teenager loves most about Kathleen is that she is always cheerful! I highly recommend Kathleen for any student.

Sadie, 5 lessons with Kathleen

Highly recommended!

I’ve had several lessons with Kathleen and I am definitely noticing improvements in my control, tone, and overall playing. I love her approach to teaching and assignments to practice and study at home. It helps me focus on the areas I need to give extra attention to in an effective manner. I also have a fun time with her as I am learning. She is an excellent tutor that will keep you motivated, challenged and improving.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

She is very organized and was able to help me improve my technique within a few lessons. She taught me new songs as well as scales. Learning from her has been an overall great experience.

Latha, 16 lessons with Kathleen

Very kind and patient!

Kathleen is so sweet and positive during her sessions with my daughter. We are hopeful that with more practice, she will be able to put more of her new skills to the test. Excited to see her progress!

Jessica, 4 lessons with Kathleen

Awesome Tutor!

Kathleen has a lovely personality and I felt comfortable with her right from the start. She was able to immediately identify my areas that needed improvement and made very helpful suggestions. I noticed a difference in how her advice positively affected my playing very early and she explained the reasoning behind the changes very well so that I understood clearly what I was doing and why it was effective. She gave me material and exercises to practice and I like that she is very kind and encouraging as she simultaneously challenges you to progress. I had a great session and I’m looking forward to our future ones!

Piano lesson

I am an experienced musician, but not on piano. I have had a number of lessons with Kathleen and am very much impressed. She challenges me with new material each week, but does it in a very positive way. Teaching piano is her full time job. I referred my 5 year old niece to her for Skype lessons. It is very exciting to see Madeline progressing and to observe Kathleen teaching an absolute beginner. As an accomplished musician (clarinet and saxophone) , I would give Kathleen a very high rating as a piano instructor.

Great lessons

Kathleen is very knowledgeable and observes the children closely as they play to help them improve. My children are benefiting from their virtual lessons with her.

Excellent flute teacher.

Kathleen is an excellent flute tutor. She knows how to build solid foundation of technical skill. My daughter has improved a lot since she took Kathleen's lessons. I can feel her tone and fingering are much better now. Thanks Kathleen for the effort she put for teaching my daughter.

Jun, 45 lessons with Kathleen

Very kind, patient, helpful, knowledgeable, and FUN!

Today I had my first clarinet lesson with Ms. Kathleen. Ms. Kathleen is very helpful to me in many ways. First of all, when I have a question she always answers the question in a way I understand. Second of all when I get a note wrong on the clarinet, she makes sure I play it correctly. Finally, she's just really kind, patient, helpful, knowledgeable, and of course FUN! Ms. Kathleen taught me new notes and to keep my rhythm. To me, this is really helpful. I think that it would be really helpful for you too.
