About Katie

Katie Drybrough
Music Teacher, Expert
Location: Bowling Green, KY
Speaks: English
Instructs: Piano
Education: Calvin Music Academy 2014-2018 (Piano Performance), Western Kentucky University 2018-2023 (Bachelor's in Piano Performance, Vocal Minor)
Performance Experience: I’ve playing piano for 18 years, professionally for 9 years, performing in operas, musicals, choral, orchestral, jazz, and band events, religious settings, and private events such as weddings, funerals, and parties.
Teaching Experience: I began my teaching career under pedagogy professor Dr. Christina Lai at WKU, completing pedagogy courses and building a private studio until I joined the Music and Arts team. In addition to teaching piano, I am the Children's Choir Director at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, and a pianist and cantor there.
Teaching Philosophy: The most important concept I want to pass on to my students is a love of music. I use a variety of approaches, including games, singing in lessons, music apps, and drums, to ensure my students can learn in the way that is best suited for them, and have a memorable but informative experience. It's very important that they have a balanced repertoire appropriate for their level, including pieces or songs that they are interested in, educational pieces from method books, and classical works.

Get to know Katie

Hi there! I’m a Piano Performance Major and Vocal Minor at Western Kentucky University. I’m an avid music lover and very excited to be on the Music & Arts team! During my undergraduate studies I’ve had instruction in piano pedagogy from Dr. Christina Lai and Dr. Zachary Lopes and begun my teaching career. I’ve playing piano for 17 years, professionally for 8 years, performing in operas, musicals, choral, orchestral, jazz, and band events, religious settings, and private events. I enjoy composing music in my spare time and playing gigs locally. Outside of music I am a passionate environmentalist, a Jurassic Park enthusiast, and love shopping for vintage things! If you take lessons with me, I’ll make sure you’re learning music that piques your interest and grows your technical and musical ability. Hope to work with you!
