Testimonials

“Katie, you’ve been INCREDIBLY helpful for my Catholic school music classes. You have found innovative and amazing ways in how to integrate technology into a music curriculum, and for a small Catholic School in WV, you’ve been a wonderful resource for our school. Thank you for your resources and I hope we cross paths some day!!”

Allie Hamilton, USA

“You have done a fabulous job setting up

[the Midnight Music Community]…and as soon as I logged in I could tell that you “got it”. You know what we are hoping to get out of this community. Since I have so many current technology goals this is EXACTLY what I need right now and I am grateful to dive in with the content.”

Janice Cook, USA

“I liked the fact that you very obviously know what you are talking about but can still explain it in a way that non-Music Techies can understand. Really refreshing and super useful!”

Julia Pope, Australia

“Best PD I have done. I could follow the course easily and then immediately try out my new ideas…. I learnt more from this course than other similar courses. VERY non stressful course format and delivery which suited me perfectly. Very clear and easy to follow. Thank you”

Jenny Dixon, Australia

“Katie has a way of explaining things very simply but without making the listener feel moronic!! I would have given up ages ago on Sibelius if it hadn’t been for her tutelage.”

Tracy Radbone, Indonesia

I teach preK – 5th grade music in a private school with over 600 students. Just want to thank you for all of your ideas-they are wonderful!!!  Sometimes I am so busy with all of the things I am teaching and your emails give me so many fun things to throw in to the teaching to change it up. Thanks again.”

Adina Mermelstein, USA

“I just wanted to let you know how valuable your material has been to my students. I am currently the 2015 Fulbright Scholar for Estonia where I am an online education specialist for the music department at Tallinn University. I have pointed all of my students to your work and they have told me that not only are you helpful but that your work makes it much easier for them to do the projects I assign them. I know how valuable it is to have feedback – so, I just wanted to share with you!”

Paul Beaudoin, USA

“I am a private music teacher in the US, and when I accidentally ran across your web page, I was quite astounded. You are very creative, and it blows me away some of the projects you have created around GarageBand. I just wanted to write and tell you that I like your work and appreciate the time and effort you put into this.”

Carol Koczo, USA

I just implemented and adapted your lesson on the “blues” using one iPad. I integrated the lesson into my Orff lesson! Even my shy ones wanted to try it, and the whole class was very supportive of their classmates in these early attempts at improvisation. Can’t wait to try another iPad lesson! Thanks so much.”
