Philadelphia Area Guitar Teachers
Katie is an experienced music educator who holds degrees in both Music Education and Music Therapy from Immaculata University, as well as fifteen years of teaching experience on piano, guitar and French horn. She is a lifelong musician – she began studying piano at a young age, and soon added French horn to her studies after an orchestral performance of “Peter and the Wolf” left her fascinated with the instrument. She was classically trained on both piano and horn, and continued to study both instruments while attending Immaculata, adding studies on the guitar along the way.
After graduating, Katie worked in liturgical, therapeutic, and educational settings. She applied her music therapy degree at Massachusetts Hospital School, Easter Seals of Philadelphia, and the Music School of Delaware with programs for children with special needs. She taught music to preschool through middle school-aged children at parochial schools in Delaware and Chester Counties, and also became a group music instructor for the very young. In addition to teaching music, she has also performed with local municipal bands and presents music programs at her local library. When not teaching, Katie enjoys spending time with her family and learning to play the mandolin.
