Katie is from Green Bay, Wisconsin, now based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In her younger years she took piano lessons from Dorota and Janus Zak in Green Bay, using the Suzuki method. She continued to train on piano with Peggy Otwell at UW-Milwaukee and classical voice with Dr. Valerie Errante, graduating with her BA in music. Currently she is playing in a few local Milwaukee bands and writes her own music.
Method books for piano will range from Bastien to Alfred to Suzuki. Katie can guide classical, musical theater, and jazz styles of voice and piano. She is comfortable with all ages of piano students, and any voice student middle school age and up. Her teaching style is student lead, with guidance and exercises offered based on skill level and interest. She believes solidifying the basics will establish skills and creativity to play whatever the student desires!
