Teaching

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!

Kate Umble has been a fabulous music instructor for our Music For Everyone in the Schools program. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her ability to connect with her students is inspiring. MFE loves Kate Umble!
