About Me

Hi everyone, I'm Katie!

I have been playing saxophone for 12 years. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from Mansfield University in 2014. I am fluent on all 4 different saxophones. While at Mansfield University, I was involved in Wind Ensemble (Principal Saxophonist), Jazz Ensemble (Lead Alto & Bari Sax), Mountie Sound Machine (Bari Sax), Marching Band (Alto Sax), Saxophone Quartet (Soprano, Alto, & Bari), and many other appearances. I have performed on various student recitals and concerts during my time at Mansfield University. I have also have been lucky enough to perform/work with Ernie Krivda, Chris Vadala, Rich Thompson, Wayne Buergeron, The Village VanGuard Band, the New York Voices, Dr. William Wakefield, Dr. Stephen Gage, Dr. Timothy McAllister, Dr. Kenneth Tse, Dr. Otis Murphy, Professor Carrie Koffman, Professor Chien Kwan-Lin, and various other guest artist that have come to Mansfield University. I have also performed a Junior, Senior, and Quartet Recital during my undergraduate career. 

While at my time in Mansfield I have also learned to find a love of arranging music. I have had the chance to have many of pieces performed with saxophone quartets and saxophone large ensembles. Many of my pieces are available for anyone who wants them and I am always arranging new things. 

I am currently living in College Park, MD studying for my Masters Degree in Saxophone Performance at University of Maryland. I am activetly invoved in the Wind Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and Saxophone Quartet. 

If you have any questions regarding woodwinds, computer notation, sheet music, or anything else, I'd be happy to help!
