Katie is a warm and enthusiastic teacher, dedicated to fostering positive, creative experiences for her students. The daughter of a jazz pianist, Katie sings, writes, and plays guitar, ukulele and fiddle in a variety of styles – ranging from folk and singer-songwriter to swing, R&B and old-time. Students will benefit from the breadth of Katie’s musical background as they develop their own creative processes, becoming better musicians and more well rounded people along the way. Katie grew up going to the Ashokan Fiddle & Dance Camps, and, over the past couple of years, has become involved with the Miles of Music Camps. These supportive communities have taught her how to learn, and make mistakes, and to feel confident in her own musical journey. Her teaching draws from that energy.
Katie graduated from New England Conservatory in 2016 and moved to Brooklyn shortly thereafter. In addition to teaching, Katie performs with her trio The Ladles, and leads the Brooklyn based band Amalia.
Katie teaches songwriting on guitar, ukulele, fiddle & voice.
