Thanks for stopping by! Allow me to tell you a bit about myself.
I teach music because I’ve experienced its power first-hand, and I believe in it.
It all started when my daughter was a baby, and I learned about Kindermusik on the evening news. We enrolled, and within a few short months, we noticed a marked difference in her joy in singing, interaction with other children and her comfort level around adults. We came when she was in infant, and stayed through the entire 7-year program. It was simply life-changing for us!
I started to think about how I could share this powerful program with other children. After my second daughter came along, the time was right to take the plunge, and became a Kindermusik teacher in the fall of 1999. When I came to Pittsburgh in 2004, I brought Kindermusik with me. That first year, I taught only 12 students, but my passion never flagged. Kathy’s Music continued to grow, beginning with the Mt. Lebanon studio in 2005, and expanding to McMurray, Squirrel Hill and Robinson over the next two years.
Soon I realized that I wanted to bring the power and joy of music learning to people in all stages of life. We added piano lessons in 2009, and grew that offering to instrument lessons in 2011.
Today we reach 950 students program-wide through a wide variety of Kindermusik and music artistry classes, along with unique summer camps. And I hope that music touches each of these lives as much as it touched my daughter’s – and mine – so many years ago!
