Kathleen Starr played piano and cello as a child, going on to earn her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in cello performance from Indiana University and the University of Massachusetts. After her junior year at Indiana, Kathleen accompanied her family to Japan where she studied with Yoshio Sato, who had worked with Dr. Suzuki to develop the first cello materials. She also observed Dr. Suzuki and other teachers at the Talent Education Institute. Kathleen has played professionally in chamber groups and orchestras and taught at Suzuki programs in Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Colorado. She recently retired from Shining Mountain Waldorf School after teaching cello and orchestra there for almost twenty years. She continues to enjoy working with an amazing group of colleagues in Boulder Suzuki Strings, where she began teaching in 1999.
