Interested in studying Classical Violin? You’re in the right place!

Not only does Miss Katie have a master’s degree from the conservatory at UMKC,

she is also on faculty at Ottawa University for violin and viola,

and she’s a Level 1 Endorsed teacher in Paul Rolland String Pedagogy

A Few Notes from Miss Katie:
I strongly believe in learning as much as possible from successful teachers and methods. That’s why I am a Level 1-Endorsed teacher in Paul Rolland String Pedagogy and I have studied pedagogy through Mimi Zweig’s camp at IU. Although I do not specifically teach the Suzuki method, I use many of their techniques combined with my study of other successful methods. One especially important concept in my studio is the Suzuki triangle, aka the Parent, Teacher, and Student. Successful lessons require commitment and open communication between all three. To make this work, I require parental involvement for students under 10 years old, and I suggest it for all parents!

I wholeheartedly believe that there is ALWAYS more to learn! Even for the teacher! For this reason, I am dedicated to forever continuing my own pedagogical studies. I’m always consulting colleagues, researching new techniques, attending pedagogy camps, and so much more to provide the highest quality education to all my students!

Tuition and Studio Specifics:​

Students will be committed to lessons on a quarterly basis (3 months at a time). ​


Quarterly Studio Membership Includes: 

  • 11 private lessons with Miss Katie at your scheduled time

  • A minimum of 2 group classes for students advanced enough to attend (inquire about you or your child if you’re unsure)

  • A minimum of 1 recital opportunity 

  • All administrative fees


Quarterly Studio Membership Tuition:

  • 30 minute lessons: $360 paid in monthly installments of $120 every month

  • 45 minute lessons: $540 paid in monthly installments of $180 every month

  • 60 minute lessons: $720 paid in monthly installments of $240 every month


A few notes about group classes and recitals:

  • Group classes and the recital are pre-scheduled at the beginning of each quarter.

  • Each group class day will have a class for kids and a class for adults. As the levels vary between students in the studio, we focus mostly on music theory and music games for the kids, and each adult group class generally focuses on one or two music theory topics. 

  • Group classes and recitals are included in your quarterly tuition, but RSVP is required so I know in advance who will be attending. This really helps me plan and personalize group classes and even recital formats/themes to fit the students that will be attending.

  • Group classes and recitals are not mandatory. Tuition is the same whether you attend or not. ​
