Kathryn began teaching piano lessons in 2007 while her and her family were living overseas. During those years, she had the opportunity to teach a small number of talented students from several different countries. Following their return to Canada in 2011, Kathryn began teaching again, this time giving private lessons at Bluewater Coast Elementary School in Hensall, Ontario. She has now been teaching in the Grand Bend area for 5 years. To inform and inspire her teaching she has completed two piano teaching courses: Introduction to Piano Teaching, in March 2015, and the Elementary Piano Teacher Specialist Course, in July 2016.
Kathryn has been participating in a variety of music-related activities all her life. Her love of music officially began as a 6-year-old when she started piano lessons for the first time. Those piano lessons continued throughout her schooling years, culminating in the completion of grade 10 piano certification from the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto. During her years of schooling, she also participated in choirs, orchestras (on violin), bands (on flute) and with playing the piano and organ at church. Although Kathryn’s post-secondary education took a different route, music in general, and playing the piano more specifically, continues to be an important part of her life.
