Miss Katie’s love for music started with the plastic box of handbells, blue rhythm sticks, castanets, and guiros her parents kept next to the piano. She was fascinated with the wooden grooves and diﬀerent tones, and would play with them obsessively on the ﬂoor. Having the space to explore music from a young age is what inspired Miss Katie to become a musician and educator today.
Miss Katie’s background in music education extends from teaching early childhood classes for Old Town School of Folk to teaching on-camera lessons for Fender, one of the largest music companies in the world. She is the creator of her own kids Youtube channel, “Miss Katie Sings”. Miss Katie has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and a CELTA Certificate from Cambridge’s ESL Instruction Program and is excited to foster a child’s music curiosity for creatively reimagining their environment.
