Kathy is a singer/songwriter and has enjoyed playing a variety of music for many years, all while enjoying her family life. She writes Christian Pop and is very passionate with her lyrics and vision she has while writing her pieces. She also can write other genres of music with secular lyrics, which shows her wide range of musical ability. Her main career is working with brain-injured children in an alternative non-profit organization. She also teaches music theory and composition to very young children in an alternative school. For the past six years she has been dedicated to writing music and has loved every minute of it. Kathy sings locally but works for the non-profit company specilized in the health of brain-injured children. There is always more work than hours in a day but her focus is writing songs and looking for others who would enjoy using them for her repertoire.
She is currently in the works of updating her website.
Songwriter Course Completed
Just completed at the end of summer 2013 a Songwriter Course on Coursera connected with Berklee Music College and really enjoyed it. Very proud of that certificate. Got an interesting song out of it and eventually will download it after I have completed recording it.
Country Rock Top Ten List
Let's Just Have Fun Tonight just made Country Rock Top Ten list. Very Excited! For those who listen to it, enjoy!
RIGHT NOW WHAT IS HAPPENING!
Currently, I work for a non-profit organization which is really an alternative treatment for brain-injured children.
They are well-known for also teaching parents how to teach their children before the age of six - it is controversial; however, well respected in many circles.
That was how I got involved; I taught my children. Got involved with their small demonstration school teaching the young children there and their parents how to write music; and am now a senior clinician who works with brain-injured children.
I have always been a musician taught by my mother who was quite a pianist. But my greatest love was always writing music and after working with the children in composition decided to get back to it. And I love every minute of it. The challenges of working in a nonprofit where there is always more work than hours in a day are greatly relieved when I sit down at the keyboard and put music together.
Having several recording sessions a month with Tom Reock - I say: "As some bat around a tennis ball, I love to BAT AROUND musical ideas."
Nothing like it!
I love to see humor in life; that is reflected in my music.
I am sure many who know me say "why is she writing music NOW?"
My answer: "I have to!"
To all those who hear my music:
"I hope it brings you great joy, much laughter with some music, and lightens the day."
I was raised in central Pennsylvania. Was taught piano by my Mom. Have taught composition to small children. During the past five years have really spent time writing music and have found I just love it. Just as some enjoy batting a tennis ball around; I enjoy batting around musical ideas. And arranging the songs or instrumentals is so much fun. Have completed two albums and am currently working on completing the recording of my Christmas Cantata. My friend, who owns the recording studio, thinks of it as a rock opera - which I really like.
The most recent project is my Christmas Cantata! It is contemporary Christian with a working title of "Jesus, God's Promises Fulfilled". Seventy-five percent is recorded and the goal is that the entire work is recorded by April. This might be a dream goal; but it is so exciting to see the end in sight for completing this work! One of the original ideas is that a piano solo is included in the work; possibly will add synth to it to make it express more what it is meant to express.
