Comments from students
“Kate is a very intuitive instructor and creates a comfortable, personal atmosphere.”
“Kate is an inspiring teacher — I always want to practice more so that my lessons will be more meaningful.”
“I have begun to grasp the aspects of what makes you so unusually magical as both flutist and mentor. I’ve never heard anyone play the way you do–it’s so expressive yet unpretentious, masterful yet so relaxed. Your musicality shelters, supports, relaxes, and nurtures your audience — and, of course, you make it appear to be easy.”
“Her innovative and relaxed playing style is reflected in her teaching. It is a joy to learn from her!”
“Kate is great and very effective yet laid back, which makes me love music and flute playing even more.”
“Kate, your enthusiasm and spirit made flute camp lively and fun!”
