Kathryn Kibbe has been an excellent viola teacher for my son. He was nervous about starting a new instrument, but her easy-going, encouraging, humorous teaching style put him at ease. However, she has high expectations and requires her students to practice diligently, which makes us parents happy. After only a few lessons, she taught my son to read the Alto Clef. She is an amazing teacher and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning viola.

Miss Kat is an excellent teacher for both violin and viola. She is invested in my daughter's progress and takes a holistic view at her playing - technique & tonal quality, but also posture & finger dexterity to help her play faster, etc. We are lucky to have a professional musician willing to take so much time and interest in students in our area. I do drive a bit to lessons, but it's well worth the investment in time. My daughter is excited to practice because she knows what she needs to do to meet her goals and she leaves her lessons feeling inspired every week!

Miss Kat is a fantastic music teacher. She taught my son violin, but she recently moved and we were sad to see her go. Her professionalism is unparalleled. She is always ready to teach, on time, and very prepared. She is also fun and engaging. I highly recommend her!
In the time I have taken violin lessons from Kathryn, she has been relentlessly upbeat; finding ways to help me improve, and somehow shielding me from seeing the full scope of the road to becoming a competent player. Plus, she has a fine balance of humor and dedication. In my view I was fortunate indeed to have her introduce me to this wonderful instrument.
