In Santa Fe, New Mexico, she recorded her Christmas guitar CD called "Tis the Season."  The CD has both classical and fingerstyle jazz selections.

Kay loves teaching people to enjoy playing the guitar.  She encourages her students to have good practice habits  so they can gain confidence ithrough playing.  The styles she offers are folk, fingerstyle and classical.  She also enjoys teaching people to sing and play together.  Beginning chord-melody playing is also an option.
