Katherine Quick has been teaching music in one form or another for over 30 years. She began her music education at the age of 9 at the piano and then broadened her focus to include voice and cello while she was in highschool. Growing up in Northern Ontario, she completed her music degree at Lakehead University, studying piano with Heather Morrison, voice with Mary Whicher and cello with Marc Palmquist. She then completed her Bachelor of Education at the University of Western Ontario in both instrumental and vocal music. After a short time of teaching high school music, she retired to homeschool her children and to turn her attention to her private studio.

Katherine’s love of children and of music has led her to many teaching opportunities over the years, from coordinating music programs in the homeschool community to teaching ensemble classes and directing the Junior Cello Department at Forest City Talent Education in London. She has directed choirs, staged musicals and is presently the Music Director at Youth Performing Arts right here in Strathroy. She thoroughly enjoys each and every opportunity!
