As a young cellist, Katie studied with pedagogue Sally Gross at the Western Springs School for Talent Education, who served as a major influence for her to pursue Suzuki training. Katie received her Master of Music in Suzuki Cello Pedagogy at the University of Denver under the tutelage of Carol Tarr, president of the Suzuki Association of Colorado and former board member for the Suzuki Association of the Americas. Katie currently runs a private cello studio in Denver, CO, and also has the pleasure of serving as a Teaching Artist for El Sistema Colorado and a group class teacher for the Highlands Ranch Elementary Orchestra Program and Denver Talent Education. Through these organizations, Katie hopes to bring quality cello instruction and music education to as many young people as possible, regardless of socioeconomic status.
