There is simply nothing better than watching my students grow as musicians because I also get to see them develop their confidence, their determination, and their self expression. Most of all, I love guiding students through the process of self discovery and the joy of sharing what they have to offer with the world. The mentors I’ve had throughout my career have been so generous and inspirational. The opportunity to give back and continue the pursuit of excellence in our art is an honor and a privilege!
I was a trumpet major in college, but stopped playing for close to 30 years. I started playing again a few years ago and realized I'd forgotten more than I'd remembered. I needed to start with the basics again, and Kate has gotten me back on track.
