Katie Vedder

Music lessons for Life!
Teaching Philosophy

Katie firmly believes that learning should be enjoyable and relevant to your life. Although very grounded in fundamentals, be ready to learn YOUR favorite music on clarinet or saxophone.

Be prepared to watch fun videos as part of your lessons and be ready to talk about your goals. Even if you are a little kid!


Katie has been teaching privately for over 15 years. Her students find her teaching style to be fun and lighthearted. In addition to teaching clarinet and saxophone, Katie runs the Symphonic Anime Orchestra and plays with various chamber and larger ensembles. She has published a method book teaching people how to play clarinet using video game themes. Katie with her husband and cats is currently living in Harrogate, North Yorkshire UK.
